Samsung has revealed the new Galaxy S III Mini, a compact version of Galaxy S III. The new smartphone has a 4-inch display and is expected to have a lesser price tag than the original Galaxy S III. The price of the new device is yet to be revealed by the company.
The smartphone looks almost similar to the original S III, which is a smart choice to lift the brand one step high. Samsung didn’t reveal the new smartphone’s color variations, but we expect it to come in white and pebble blue colors.
The main features of the new S III Mini are:
- A 4-inch AMOLED screen.
- Android 4.1 aka Jelly Bean Operating System.
- Quad-core processor found in Galaxy S III is replaced with a 1GHz dual-core processor in S III Mini. The smartphone has 1GB RAM.
- A 5 Megapixel camera is seen on the back side of the smartphone. It has a LED flash with auto focusing feature. The camera on the front side is a VGA.
- It has Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and also NFC
- The new S III Mini comes with both 8GB and 16 GB internal memory options with an expandable storage capacity of up to 32 GB.
- The smartphone is equipped with a 1,500 mAh battery.
The other feature in the new S III Mini is the NFC feature, which helps the user to share data by just tapping their Mini with another S III Mini or a Galaxy Note or a Galaxy S III, without connecting to the internet.
Samsung’s S voice feature is available in the new S III Mini. Users can change the volume, unlock their device and do lot more with the S voice feature.
Some more aspects in the new S III Mini include the feature that makes screen lit at a glance on the camera, and DLNA that makes the users transfer images and videos between other compatible devices like TV. However, some features are battery consuming, which may reduce the life of the battery
The new Galaxy S III Mini is a stylish model from Samsung and is likely to reach all the countries. Samsung established its brand by introducing its first higher-end smartphone, and the new S III Mini makes Galaxy S III’s sub-brand come at a lower cost.
The launch of the Galaxy S III Mini and its price in India is still a mystery and we hope it gets launched soon with a lesser price tag.
