Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy S3 Mini smartphone, as expected, as it seeks to continue its dominance in the Android ecosystem and maintain its challenge against Apple.
The device packs a fairly standard 1GHz dual-core processor, rather than a quad-core chip like the standard S3 device but does run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, unlike the other device.
The phone also features a 4in 480x800 Super Amoled display and features a 5MP rear-facing camera with flash, a VGA front-facing camera, either 8GB or 16GB of included storage, and a 1500mAh battery.
It will also have support for 4G connections as it can run on the spectrum used by EE that will be the backbone of its 4G network, set to go live at the end of month.
Like the 4.8in Samsung Galaxy S3 it also features Samsung's Touchwiz overlay, equipping it with features such as S Voice, Pop up Play and S Beam NFC smarts.
Simon Stanford, vice president of Samsung UK and Ireland said the firm was hopeful the device would meet the demands of those looking for the same functions of the Galaxy S3 but in a smaller package, at a cheaper price point.
"We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers the same revolutionary design, intuitive usability and intelligence in a mini version," he said.
"We will continue to develop smartphones to cater for a variety of customer needs and this latest release demonstrates our on-going commitment to offering our customers more choice at every price point."
Samsung is yet to talk about the handset's pricing or release date, but we're expecting the Galaxy S3 to be a cheaper device as it continues to broaden its portfolio.
