Samsung Galaxy S III Mini now official, arrives with 1 GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch screen

We knew it was coming and here it is officially! Samsung took the centre stage in Frankfurt and has unveiled the Galaxy S III Mini.


Samsung Galaxy S III Mini is a smaller version of the popular and hot selling Galaxy S III. Samsung felt that many people wanted a smaller smartphone on the lines of the S III and so the Korean giant decided to launch the S III Mini.

The Galaxy S III Mini doesn’t pack in the high end specification of the S III but arrives with a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, is powered by a dual-core 1 GHz processor coupled with 1 GB RAM & more.

Specs of the Galaxy S III Mini are as follows:
  • 4.0 inch Super AMOLED screen
  • Display resolution of 800 x 480 pixels
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 1.0GHz dual-core ST-Ericsson U8420
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 5 megapixel with auto focus and LED Flash
  • VGA front facing camera
  • 8/16 GB internal memory, MicroSD card slot (up to 32GB)
  • 2G, 3G connectivity
  • Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi a / b / g / n 2.4/5GHz, DLNA, NFC, S-Beam
  • 1,500 mAh battery

We feel that the S III Mini would be a great device for users who wish to own a S III but are not happy with the huge 4.8-inch screen of the smartphone but with S III Mini they will definitely have to compromise on the specs of the smartphone.

Leaving all that aside, Samsung is yet to announce the price and availability of the Galaxy S III Mini but we’ll update you as we hear from the company.
