This is pointed to the people who want a good PHONE with Latest Features. That is the Midrange user which is a huge mass of people who use a Phone as a Phone with advance features. 4 inch is the perfect size for a Phone for a Normal user. A Nice 5MP camera is good enough for his photographic intents. Need to Have a Good Battery Backup and Possible latest Version of the Os running. It should perfectly in Hand and slips easily it to pockets. Nice build quality, A Decent screen, a good Multimedia experience and smooth browsing. If this phone satisfies all these, Definitely it is going to be Mid-range Block Buster. Let us wait what Samsung has Cooked. I would say, If they are wise and Know what the common people want, no one can stop them.
James, 03 Oct 2012when S3 come out, fan praise its large screen and criticise iPhone 5 tiny screen when S3 mi... moreActually, those are new fans that waiting for Samsung to release a smaller screen of their high-end device. Others don't have a problem with screen bigger than 4.3".... =)
Here in Canada, the price of the S3 was discounted last weekend to nothing and now has shot way up passed what it was previously. There doesn't appear to be any stock anywhere or available for purchase from Retail chains either. Looks like all existing stock was cleared out for a reason and existing sales put on hold by the price increase.
Rick, 03 Oct 2012People say it will be a weakened s3 version with 5mp camera instead of 8mp. If it's true, fail... morefail? mini usually points to reduced features. How can that be FAIL?. It's probably not designed for you, most probably its for the mid end market.
People say it will be a weakened s3 version with 5mp camera instead of 8mp. If it's true, fail. If it's a smaller S3 with all current features: \0/ I'll buy one!

Herman, 02 Oct 2012I accidentally read 'So gross..' in English. Wait, what?So Gross Kann Klein Sein
So Great Small Can Be
You Can't Read It In English!!
The Galaxy S3 futs in my front shirt pocket (that is my benchmark so, its not huge so Y release a smaller version. Same goes for Note 2.
If it has the same specifications of the GS3 and a smaller screen (but with decent resolution) and, most important, it retains the 8mp camera, then I could well switch to Samsung...
Really great news. The problem with android lately was that you could either buy a phone that was ridiculously large or a mediocre gingerbread machine that will never see an update.
Imo 3-4" screens are more than enough. Yes, bigger is better and surfing is great and videos are more fun to watch, but the rest of the time, it's just this big, awkward plastic/playcarbonate/aluminium thing in your pocket.
Give this phone some decent specs, make it smaller than 125mm height, price it smartly and I'm buying i.
It is NOT the next nexus.
Otherwise it would be a google event. Samsung would not be annoucing a google device.
it is a smaller S to sit along side the S3
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2012specs on the paper is not equal to real performance. people buy mercedes for some reasons othe... moreSpecs really arent everything just look at cars. You can have a car with a bigger engine lose to one with a smaller engine.
kel, 03 Oct 2012Agree with you all the way bro, Samsung is nothing but a copy cat to Apple.That or they realized people are to lazy to text/surf/dial with two hands and wanna use one instead.
Jonathan, 03 Oct 2012I have a Galaxy S3 right here and honestly didn't like it. It's too big and difficult to handl... moreAgree. I feel 4-4.3in is the sweet spot. Any bigger and you better off carrying a 7in tablet around if you need more room to do whatever it is your doing.
camo, 03 Oct 2012More likely to be the Next Galaxy Nexus. If anyone has an issue with the S3 screen size they a... moreA moron cause you want to hold you phone with one hand? I guess everyone is a moron then. Why the hell did we ever invent a portable phone anyways lets just carry a giant plasma tv/computer/phone around that will make our lives better, cause bigger is always better... If you didnt lnow Im being sarcastic
iamdanny, 02 Oct 2012i would like the phone with 4 inch display,3g,wifi,dlna,nfc,html5 with full flash player suppo... moreYour dream phone is already available in the market bud. xD
