Samsung unveils smaller, cheaper Galaxy S III

Jeng jeng jeng. Today Samsung Electronics has unveiled a smaller and cheaper version of the Galaxy S III smartphone with the same screen size as the iPhone 5 in Germany.

The device, dubbed the Galaxy S3 Mini, features a 4-inch screen and the latest version of Google’s Android operating system. By comparison, Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S3 smartphone has a 4.8-inch screen.

Samsung said the mini would be launched in Europe later this month but kept mum on schedules for other countries and it is expected to be priced between USD 350 to USD 430.

It is powered by the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, packed with S Voice, a language recognition software, and Smart Stay which keeps the screen lit as long as you are looking at it.

The display has a lower resolution of 800×480 pixels compared to 1,280×720 pixels, the camera is five rather than eight megapixels and the S III’s dual-core 1.5GHz processor has been downgraded to 1GHz.

The Mini’s screen is the same size as the iPhone 5 launched last month by Apple, but its reduced feature set makes it more of a corner man in the heavyweight clash between the iPhone 5 and the S III.
