Samsung Galaxy S III mini I8190 officially unveiled

GALAXY SIII mini I8190

GALAXY SIII mini I8190I could say this the shortest rumour there was in history, barely 2 weeks since I heard of the Galaxy S III mini, it’s now out. The phone was unveiled today in Germany, and Samsung terms it as the compact version of the flagship device the Galaxy S III. Apparently this device is for users who have a problem with bigger screens like what we have on the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Note series. Galaxy S III mini took the river stone design first seen on the Galaxy S III and taken over to several other devices like the Galaxy S Duos, the Galaxy Note II Galaxy Chat among others. And that’s how the device came to be launched on 4 inch screen, smaller than the Galaxy S III and the same size as the first Galaxy.
Galaxy S III also comes with some of the features experienced on the Galaxy S III, these being Smart Stay that works with the front camera to prevent screen time-out when using the phone, S Beam which is Samsung’s iteration of Androif Beam, Buddy photo share, Direct call, Smart Alert and S Voice for voice command. These are the features that had the Galaxy S III get the name smartphone redefiner.

Let’s go quickly onto the specs sheet:

3G HSPA of 14.4, 4inch WVGA SuperAMOLED, 1GHz ST-Ericsson NovaThor chipset Dual core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 5 MP AF rear camera with LED flash+front VGA camera, video recording and playback at 720p, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot, Accelerometer, 8GB or 16GB storage options, 8GB ROM and 1GB RAM, the dimensions are 121.55 x 63 x 9.85 mm and weighs 111.5 g. The battery is a 1500mAh.

Availability and pricing details have not been revealed however, but with this announcement I expect it to be available in the stores in Germany in a month or less.

    • Actually, I think Samsung went beyond wanting to satisfy that need to spiting Apple with a device that is the same size as iPhone 5. Kind-of to show them this is the device to compare the iPhone with, Galaxy S III is way above that league.
