The Galaxy Ace 2 is the sequel of the Galaxy Ace Plus and was presented in February 2012. It is part of Samsung's mid-range repertoire and with its 800 MHz dual-core processor, places itself between the Ace Plus and the S Advance. The resolution of 800 x 480 pixels was a significant increase compared to its predecessor, and the display of 3.8 inches is also slightly larger than the 3.5-inch display of the first Ace. The dual-core chipset was, at the time of release, quite special for a mid-range device. The Ace 2 thus offered more performance than competing models of the same smartphone segment.
