Another device from Samsung, the Galaxy Ace 3, is apparently headed for a launch now that its existence has seemingly been confirmed by a benchmark listing. The last time a benchmark gave away a device from the South Korean manufacturer was in February when the Young, the Star and the Pocket 2 came out.
Some of the purported device’s specs have been seen courtesy of a test on GLBenchmark as pounced upon by TheDroidGuy. For one there has been some light shed in terms of the processor on which the device is running. It seems the gadget will replace its predecessor’s NovaThor CPU with one from Broadcom. Furthermore, this chip could be made to tick at a clock speed of 1GHz and it might well have two cores.
The main highlight of this little unofficial reveal is that the handset seems to be on the very latest of Android platforms, with version 4.2.2 of Jelly Bean listed. Accompanying the aforementioned chipset, there should be a VideoCore IV HW GPU. The last bit of information that can be squeezed out concerns the screen resolution, which seems set at 800 x 480 pixels.
The handset itself is tied to the model number GT-S7272, but nothing else is known about it. For example, how much RAM it will pack, and the amount of on-board storage it will house is hard to decipher from the listing alone. At this point, we don’t even know what its battery capacity will be.
But the folks at SamMobile have thrown down their own version of the things concerning features not revealed in the benchmark. The following is pure conjecture and is meant just to fill the void. It must not be taken as truth. They speculate that the device will come with a 4-inch display, 1GB of RAM and a 5MP camera capable of 720p video.
Probably judging by the recent launches surrounding the manufacturer, they even suggest that the handset will be offered up with a dual SIM option to suit a wider range of customers. Furthermore, they refuse to think up internal memory capacity, but say it is likely that we’ll see a microSD card slot for expansion.
One thing is for sure, the benchmark leak puts a spin on things, and it is possible we might see the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 in more official attire soon.
