When rumors of Samsung launching a smaller version of its flagship Galaxy S III surfaced the corner, there was an air of credibility to the speculations. And on Thursday, the Korean manufacturer uncovered the toned-down version of Galaxy S III smartphone, called the Galaxy S III Mini.
Standing in direct competition to Apple’s newest iPhone 5, the Galaxy S III mini has a 4-inch display screen, same as the former. Together, Apple and Samsung dominate the smartphone market, controlling over one-half of the US market.
Spilling all the beans over the device, Samsung says this mini smartphone will come equipped with a 5 MP camera instead of the 8 MP of the larger version. It also said that the device will not operate on high-speed 4G LTE networks, which might make it pricing relatively low.
Furthermore, the Galaxy S III mini’s sharp Super AMOLED screen and general design offers it a stylish look. With a 1GHZ dual-core processor, the device will run Google’s latest Android system, Jelly Bean.
This smaller version of the Galaxy S III will support 32GB memory at the max. The device seems to be a great fit for small hands and pockets.
However, no announcement for its availability or pricing in the US was made by Samsung.
