New details have emerged on the Samsung Galaxy S III mini, and while it is not quite as powerful as we hoped, it still packs a pretty serious punch. The phone comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean installed, and according to MobileGeeks, the 4-inch device will feature a WVGA 800 x 480 Super AMOLED display and a 1.0GHz dualcore STE U8420 processor.
Surprisingly, the camera on the back is only five megapixels, which seems low. The report also says that the S III mini will have 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a MicroSD slot compatible with up to 32GB card. For connectivity, the new phone has WiFi a/b/g/n (2.4GHz/5GHz), Bluetooth 4.0, and microUSB, along with triband HSPA (900/1900/2100) and quadband GSM/EDGE.
The reports indicate that the phone is going to be 121.55 x 62.95 x 9.85 mm, which makes it quite a bit smaller than the full-sized S III. The device will be NFC and Android Beam compatible. It will have a 3.5mm jack, a VGA front-facing camera, a 1,500 mAh battery, and will feature a change to touch button design.
The website, which claims their predictions may not be 100% right, says that the device will retail for €399 ($513) unlocked and SIM-free. If these predicted specs are true, it won’t be the most powerful device on the market, but it certainly won’t be the weakest either. We will find out for certain tomorrow when Samsung officially announces the S III Mini.
