Galaxy S III mini specs and photo leak - dual-core CPU and JB
Well that was fast - the Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III mini leaked in full before tomorrow's official announcement. These specs are not official so they might be inaccurate, but they look right for a 4" Samsung Galaxy S III mini device.
The screen is 4" big (which we already knew) and it's a Super AMOLED unit of WVGA resolution (so likely the same screen as on the original Galaxy S). The phone is powered by a ST-Ericsson U8420 chipset with a dual-core CPU clocked at 1GHz and 1GB RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy S III mini will launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Samsung's traditional TouchWiz customizations on top. The main camera will be a 5MP unit with LED flash and there will be a front-facing VGA camera, though there's no info on the video recording (fingers crossed for 1080p, but it might be 720p too).
On the connectivity side we have quad-band 2G and tri-band 3G with 14.4Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 HSUPA, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0, optional NFC and a microUSB port. The built-in storage is set at 16GB, expandable with a microSD card.
The Galaxy S III mini will measure 121.6 x 63 x 9.9 mm and will have a plastic exterior that looks like the Galaxy S Duos (a small S III/Note II lookalike). The weight was not included in the leaked specs. The battery inside it will have 1500mAh capacity.
The pricing info puts the Samsung Galaxy S III mini at €400 ($515), which isn't much less than a full-sized Galaxy S III. We'll wait for the official pricing info during tomorrow's official unveiling.
And OS wise? Did you come here to tell us to buy a restricted OS that doesnt let you do as you like with your own phone? iOS and WP, i really dont see the difference, restricted to the bone, totally unsuitable for most ppls usage.

Spec wise, this is no match for L820! hoard of cores but still laggy and shitty built. Lumia any day!

the same can be said of apple fanboys too. every manufacturer has fanboys and crtics, but the specs dont lie, and the sIII has pretty damn fantastic specs...
