Samsung Shows off Mid-Range Android Smartphone

Samsung has shown off a new Galaxy smartphone that it says is aimed at the “young expressive consumer”.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace a basic Android smartphone, running the KitKat (v4.4) of the operating system, and comes with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of memory and a 4-inch display screen.

It comes with a 5-megapixel camera and is pre-loaded with the company’s own-brand OTT messaging service, ChatOn.

The phone will be released later this month — pricing still to be announced.

The phone was also described by the company statement as being “optimized for performance”, which actually left us wondering what the company’s other phones are optimized for.
