The Samsung Galaxy Ace was upgraded to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) on Three back in July and soon it will be getting another upgrade. Three confirmed on its Twitter that the smartphone will be upgraded to Android 2.3.4 in the next week.
The flagship improvement brought by version 2.3.4 is support for video calling using Google Talk. Sadly the Galaxy Ace doesn't have a front-facing camera to take advantage of this new feature. That doesn't mean the update isn't important though because it fixes a number of bugs and security flaws present in the previous version of Android.
The update is expected to roll out over Kies in the next week, so keep alert for its arrival.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace is a great mid-range handset with a sleek appearance. Its target market is the younger trendier crowd who want an affordable stylish handset. It's specification includes a 3.5 inch touch-screen, 800MHz processor and a 5 mega-pixel camera.
The Galaxy Ace is available to buy from Three and costs £199.99 on Pay As You Go or is available free on contracts starting at just £18 a month. You can view all the available deals by clicking here.
