Another Galaxy device is heading to Canadian soil soon. We first let you know that the Samsung Galaxy Ace II would land on Virgin Mobile, but it seems that it’ll also hit other carriers. According to the internal doc we received it shows Bell will release this Android-powered Ice Cream Sandwich device on Thursday, November 15th.

The general design looks like the Galaxy S III, but specs of the Ace II – which is now considered an entry-level device – might be something consider as it has a 4-inch display (480×800), 1GHz single core processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP camera & VGA front facing camera, 1500mAh battery and will come in Cobalt Black and White. We’re also hearing that the price will be about $250 outright.

We’ll have more info soon!
(Thanks tipster!)

    $50 more gets you a Nexus 4…

      Not a lot of difficulty in making that decision eh?

      2 year old specs(Ace 2 similar to Nexus S) vs best on the market.

      I think I know which way my $300 would go ;) Hello always having the latest and greatest Android updates.

      I would wager this phone will never see Jellybean.

      Memo to the ENTIRE mobile industry:

      Get ready to a barrage of:
      “For $200 less/$50 more you can get a N4″

      Before you release/price a phone ask yourself this:
      1-Does it have SD card?
      2-Does it have LTE?
      3-How much less (in most cases) or more is the N4??

    • Samsung vs LG

      Unfortunately, the Google Nexus 4 is made by LG, and LG has a horrific track record in quality & performance. The price difference is well justified for a Samsung product!

  • Is this Bb10?

    $59 more gets you an unlocked Nexus 4. Better battery, screen, Jelly Bean!

  • Is this Bb10?

    Hey Ian, where’s that Nexus 4 review. I’m curious about its battery life and HDMI interface.

    • Sean

      IS in general are not the first to publish reviews but they are one of the better ones because they wait and test it

  • Is this Bb10?

    Rumour is that the N4 has dismal battery life so it might not be the Jesus phone after all.

    ace 2 <3

  • GENERAL WONG

    good for those who don’t want a data plan

  • GENERAL WONG

    people don’t know about the next nexus, and people are dumb. If you give them the choice beetween a nexus 4 for $309 or a free, lower quality phone with a $450 tab, people will get the “free” phone.

    I was a rep, and sadly it’s true.

  • Jay

    Better comparison against the current industry:

    For $200 less than the iPhone 4, you can get a bigger screen and expandable memory.

    Koodo is also getting this phone. This phone is like the s3 mini

  • Dav

    This phone here in Europe has been out from early spring time, so thats about 7 months now. Seems to me to be a waste of time to release it in the US. I dont understand either why the specs in the US are different. You get 1GB RAM and we only have 756MB. We get a dual core 800MHz processer you get 1GHz single core. Good thing though is that we will soon get the Jellybean update which has been officially announced by Samsung
