This new release date comes via UK retailer KingOfGadgets, who is offering the Galaxy Ace upgrade for pre-order, with a promise to send out shipments in March. We’ve been in touch with both Expansys and Samsung for further clarification on the handset’s release, but we’re still awaiting a response.
Officially unwrapped back in January, the Galaxy Ace Plus improves on the original with a bumped-up spec sheet, which included Google’s new Android 2.3 Gingerbread software and a larger 3.65-inch 320 x 480 capacitive touch panel.
This, as you’d expect from a Sammy-branded Android phone, comes dressed in TouchWiz UI, equipping the phone with multiple customizable homescreens, Samsung Hubs and Samsung’s new ChatOn messenger, which ”connects all phone users – across any phone platform- into a single community.”
The Galaxy Ace sequel will also land touting a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, GPS, HSDPA and WiFi connectivity, a 1300mAH battery and 3GB of included memory expandable to 32GB via microSD.
