While a lot of consumers want the most powerful and swankest smartphones, not everyone can either afford the monthly costs or initial outlay for such a handset. This is where more affordable but still worthy devices come into play. Today we have news of the middle of the road Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus that has been revealed.

Samsung has made its updated Galaxy Ace Plus official and is basically as the name suggests, an updated version of the original Galaxy Ace. According to TechRadar the new version gets its screen size increased from 3.5-inch to 3.65-inches. The device is also upgraded from Android Froyo to Android Gingerbread.

Instead of the originals 800MHz processor the Galaxy Ace Plus gets a 1GHz unit, but the screen may not be to everyone’s tastes. The resolution has stayed the same at 320 x 480 meaning that because of the slight increase in size there will be a drop in screen clarity.

Camera wise you will get a five megapixel autofocus camera that includes a LED flash. You also get 3GB of memory, 512MB of RAM, Bluetooth 3.0, and a microSD card input. The handset will come with the usual Samsung TouchWiz UI, which features all the social and music features you can expect from the service.

Other features of the device include the ability to block calls and SMS messages from people you don’t want to hear from. The device is expected to be released later this month in Europe and Russia, and later in the year in Latin America, Africa, China, Asia, and The Middle East. It is thought the device will be priced at a similar level to the original Galaxy Ace.
