Canadian carrier Bell's customers will have to wait a little longer before they can lay their hands on the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. Per reports, the device will not arrive on the carrier on Nov. 15 as rumored earlier, but on Nov. 22.
Earlier in November, a leaked internal document had disclosed that Bell would be releasing the Android-powered Galaxy Ace 2 on Nov. 15. However, now a tipster has informed Mobile Syrup that owing to "global product delays," the phone's release has been pushed back by a week.
The Web site received an internal document which shows the details. According to the document, Bell seems to have named its version the "Galaxy Ace 2 X" and the black model will release on Nov. 22, followed by the white variant on Nov. 30.
"The Samsung Galaxy Ace II x was originally expected to arrive on November 15th, but due to "global product delays" the mid-range Android has been delayed. The good news is that it's not that long until it lands on Canadian soil. According to the internal doc we received it stated that the black version will be available on November 22nd, then the white version will hit stores on November 30th. The Ace II x is also heading to TELUS, Koodo and Virgin and most likely their launch dates have also been impacted," reported Mobile Syrup.
Per the report, the Galaxy Ace 2 is also headed to other Canadian carriers like TELUS, Virgin, and Koodo and it is likely that their launch date has also been impacted by the global delay.
The Galaxy Ace 2 features a 4-inch display with 800 x 480 pixels resolution, a 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 1500mAh battery. The phone will also sport a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a VGA front-facing snapper.
Even though the phone does not pack in high-end features it is expected to retail for $250, which is just $49 more than the high-end Nexus 7. Whether the Galaxy Ace 2 will be yet another Samsung success remains to be seen.
