World smartphone leader, Samsung today (8 April) officially announced the launch details of the Galaxy Ace Style, which was showcased at the recently concluded company event 'Samsung Roadshow' in Hamburg, Germany.
The South Korean firm has said that the new entry-level smartphone Galaxy Ace Style will be released globally this month; however, the details regarding the phone's price and its availability in specific regions are still under wraps.
If reports from Germany (courtesy, Netzwelt) are to be believed, the new Samsung phone is said to cost around €200(around ₹16,400) and €300 (around ₹24,612), which is too hefty for an entry-level phone.
In India, phones with much superior specifications such as Motorola Moto G, HTC Desire 310 and other domestic handsets cost less than ₹14,000. If foreign exchange rates and local taxes are to be considered, the price is expected to differ with markets.
Galaxy Ace Style sports 4.0-inch WVGA TFT screen with 800x480p resolutions and it is the Samsung's first budget smartphone to ship with Android v4.4 KitKat OS out-of-the-box.
Under the hood, the phone packs 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 512MB RAM, 4GB inbuilt storage (expandable up to 64GB), 5.0-megapixel main camera (with LED flash), a VGA camera for video chat and a 1500 mAh battery.
