The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 and Sony Xperia M are probably two of the most expected devices by those buyers looking for an affordable Android smartphone that offers some decent specs. Now they both have UK release dates, according to retailer Carphone Warehouse.
The retailer revealed on its website that the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3, a device very recently announced, will be available in July, so you’ll have to wait about a month for it, provided it all goes according to plan.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 has a 4-inch WVGA display and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core CPU and 1GB RAM. It also has a 5-megapixel main camera (as well as a VGA front one) and it runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Internal memory is 4GB, to which you can add more using a microSD card.
A similar page has been created for another Android smartphone featuring lower-end specs, the Sony Xperia M. However, if that’s the phone you want to buy, your wait will be a longer one, since the retailer mentions an August release date for the device. Just like the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3, the Xperia M is set to also have a dual SIM version, but Carphone Warehouse is talking about the single SIM variants, though.
The specs of the Sony Xperia M include a 4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels, with the device being powered by a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm CPU and 1GB of RAM. Internal memory is 4GB, and there’s a microSD card slot on board, too. Also important is that the main camera features a 5MP Exmor RS sensor. NFC is also included, and so is Stamina mode, to get more use out of the battery.
Do you plan on getting one of these two devices? If so, which one?
