We knew it was coming, but Samsung has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S3′s little brother…the Galaxy S3 Mini. The device is built in a similar style to that of its big brother, but aimed at those looking for a mid-end smartphone, with a mid-end budget.
Samsung hasn't yet provided details about availability or pricing.
“The Galaxy S3 introduced a new concept of smartphone that has proven hugely popular around the world,” says JK Shin, President and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “We’re now delighted to bring its revolutionary design, intuitive usability and intelligence to the Galaxy S3 Mni in a more compact form. We continue to make every effort to provide extraordinary mobile experiences to meet a wide variety of user needs.”
- Android 4.1 JellyBean
- Dual core 1GHz processor
- 5mp camera
- Memory: 8/16 GB (internal), upto 32 GB (micro SD)
- RAM: 1GB
- 4.0" screen (223 pixels per inch)

The Galaxy SIII mini is ready to deal a serious blow to the competition in the midrange, by offering a more compact (and cheaper!) way to get the premium smartphone experience. An ambitious goal it is, but Samsung isn't afraid of a challenge.
