Galaxy S III mini specs and photo leak - dual-core CPU and JB - read the full textWell 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...

Gsmarena, a samsung galaxy s3 cost £450. You have printed that the s3 mini is 400 euros or 515 dollars then said thats not much cheaper than the s3, well i can tell you that the 400 euros/515 dollars converted = £321, that's a £130 difference.

So sorry, the s3 mini is considerably cheaper than the s3 & by quite a margin too

judging from the launching price, i see xperia s or xperia p as a better option. as good as the specs looks, i can tell it'll perform less than ordinary consumer out there hoped for. although it share almost the same spec as galaxy s2; 1ghz dual core and mali400mp gpu, but both cpu and gpu is on weaker side. the graphic processing power is about as fast as adreno 205 or half of mali400 on gs2. some people may consider jellybean right of the box is a bonus but since i already experienced jb on my nexus s, the fast battery drain problem is something to be aware of.

Pointless....samsung has the Galaxy advance already out there with almost exactly the same specs.What everyone expected as a gs3 with a 4'' screen.Yes,then it would make some sense to pay 400€ but with these specs why pay 130€ more from a galaxy advance or 50€ more from a gs2?(GREEK-MACEDONIAN)

Samsung should not bring such entry level device with SIII name.
ITS not Highend device as previously reported,
but an upgrade to Galaxy mini,
see tomorrow,
this mobile will not have SIII Mini name on it,
might be called Samsung Galaxy S 3 mini

I bet the screen technic is only Pentile AMOLED, like Galaxy Plus and S Advance. So it's going to be terrible and very grainy screen. I've own both and returned them, because screen made me almost headache. So no thanks, not any more! :(

You sure that's the Note II on the 2nd picture?

Anyways, disappointed in the specs, do they even crack the S2's level? You'd expect something compact but strong when you hear "S3 Mini", unless it debuts in the entry level, you might as well go for the ever cheaper Galaxy Nexus; not exaclty compact size, but a much bigger bang for your buck.

Desire X has better performance/price ratio

I will tell you the truth Sammy, this won't sell. S2 will outsell this and probably the most of phones at this price range.

Since last year, I couldn't find single deal that is better than Galaxy S2. One X might replace GS2 since its price has been dropped very sharply, but still GS2 is a winner.

tl;dr : SGS2 is still the best

design seems to be inspired from sony ericsson LIVE WITH WALKMAN rather than the galaxy S3 itself... shame...

The specs on this are fine, good job Samsung!
You will now attract the mid range buyers even more.
The addition of 4.1 JB right out of the box is great.
Keep it up!

no offense but this kind of seems a stupid move...
this Galaxy s3 mini has almost similar spec as that to galaxy s2.. so nothing special
