Elsewhere, there's a 5MP rear-facing camera, 1500mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, HSDPA, 4GB of interal storage and a microSD card slot that supports up to 64GB.

While it won't tempt buyers away from the incoming Samsung Galaxy S5, the Korean manufacturer will be hoping the Galaxy Ace Style will rival the Motorola Moto G. The Motorola however, supports 4G connectivity.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace Style is expected to go on sale this month in cream, white and dark grey finishes. Pricing is yet to be confirmed.

But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
