Really it's good idea from Samsung to have mini s3. From this movement he can capture the low budget customer who wants smart phone at reasonable price. I think the price should be around US$100

This reminds me of the tactics Sony uses with their PlayStation line. Release the bulky one first, then after a few years, release a smaller version with the same power and ability.

Doing this may work wonders for the S3 line. I'd like to have something a little smaller but with the same processing power.

Wow, no "leaked" images? No "rumors"?

Only Apple Inc can cook these up?

This may be quite similar to s advance.however it should't be a super amoled screen.hd super amoled is fine but with wvga res the pentile nature becomes so evident.
A PLS LCD would do.also it's hard to understand y doesn't sammy use S LCD in few of it's phones since it owns it.

They can't make it with the same exact specs like the GS3 in a smaller body or else the sales of the S3 will go down,it's their flagship phone after all.

It's simply replacing S2. Nothing more.

instead of 4", they would have made it 4.2" or 4.3" like the size of S2... i guess the phone should have jelly bean out of the box, not the ice cream sandwich with a gig of ram, 720p screen... camera 5mpx okay but with 1080p video recording n front 1.3 mpx wid 720p just like galaxy nexus n a dual core krait processor wid adreno 225 or a dual core exynos cortex A9 wid mali 400 will be great... battery should be approx 1800 mah, superamoled screen wid gorilla glass...
