Wow, that was quick! I've literally only just publishedand Samsung has made it official.
The leak was pretty well spot-on, with a genuine pic and correctly predicting the Ace 3's 4-inch 800x480-pixel screen.
If anything the leak underplayed the Ace 3's specs a touch, with its 8GB of expandable internal memory and 1.2GHz dual-core processor a little better than expected. It'll have 4G too, for super-fast, super-pricey mobile broadband.
It's still a very basic phone though, with the same 5-megapixel snapper as last year's Ace 2. Its screen resolution hasn't improved either -- if anything, it's worse because the same number of pixels are stretched over a slightly larger display.
The Ace 3 will run, the very latest version of Google's mobile software -- until the next version comes out, which may not be far away.
I expect we'll be able to go hands-on with the Ace 3 at Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, , and maybe a few Windows Phone devices. Hopefully we'll find out a price and release date then too., alongside a bunch of other new Android devices such as the ,
