The race to the bottom in the smartphone industry never ends. Samsung has announced a brand new budget device running Android 4.4 KitKat. The Galaxy Ace Style, model number SM-G310HN, runs the latest version of Android with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface on a 4-inch WVGA display. On the back is a 5MP camera and the front features one with 0.3MP. Both dual-SIM and single-SIM variants will be available. Yes, this is the same device that leaked recently.

Low end phones usually have one achilles heel, and that is that they usually can’t run the latest version of Android. Things have changed with KitKat since it supports devices with only 512MB of RAM. Flagship phones had 512MB of RAM back in 2010.

Details of a new Samsung phone with the model G310 has surfaced thanks to FCC filings and Zauba’s import minifest, not to mention a NenaMark 2 benchmark. Piecing things together, the G310 will sport a 4-inch WVGA (800 x 480) display, a Broadcom chipset with two Cortex-A9 cores clocked at 1.2GHz, a VideoCore IV GPU, 512MB of RAM, 1,500mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0 +LE, NFC, Wi-Fi b/g/n (2.4GHz), and dual-SIM option.

Unfortunately all of them are lower-end and are using Nokia’s own (forked) version of Android without Google services.

The Nokia X (pictured above) and X+ are essentially the same, but the X+ includes more storage and an SD card.The Nokia XL (pictured below) gives you a bigger display (5-inches vs 4-inches) along with an added front-facing camera. Full specs for all devices and a video after the break.

The Nokia X is rumored to come with a 5-megapixel camera, however when it appeared on the CamSpeed database, the detected camera was 3MP. To help clear this confusion, a another picture was taken with the Nokia X (A110) and the EXIF data shows it’s a 5MP photo.

The EXIF shows that the picture was taken with flash and a fixed-focus camera with a resolution of 1,920 × 2,560 pixels (4.9 MP). Previous rumors about the Nokia X indicate that the device will sport a 4-inch WVGA screen, dual-core 1 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 4 GB of internal memory and has a Dual-SIM option. The device is expected to be announced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) which is set to take place on February 24 in Barcelona.
