Samsung Galaxy S III Mini is now official

Samsung Galaxy S III Mini is now official

Finally the rumors have been confirmed, is that Samsung has just announced officially its new Mini during an event in Germany itself, a smaller version of one of the moving stars of the Korean company, which comes to call attention of a market that had been neglected by the Android handset manufacturers, the screens with 4 inches or less.

Both its appearance, which is remarkably similar to the Galaxy S III original, as its performance, have also been confirmed, taking into account that for several days and were handled on the web, leaving this smartphone as a mid-range phone.

Galaxy S III Features Mini

  • 4-inch Super AMOLED with a resolution of 800×480 pixels.
  • Exynos dual-core processor with a frequency of 1 GHz.
  • 1 GB RAM.
  • Storage capacity of 8 or 16 GB.
  • MicroSD card slot up to 32 GB.
  • 5 MP main camera with LED flash.
  • Front camera VGA type.
  • NFC Chip.
  • Bluetooth 4.0.
  • 1500 mAh battery.
  • Android OS 4.1 Jelly Bean.

This phone does not have LTE connectivity, so it is very short with his older brother. However, it is very good news that this phone comes standard with the latest version of the Android operating system, as did most pointer terminal currently house, the Galaxy Note II .

Any disappointment from Samsung?

Personally, I think this is the kind of ads that makes negtivas received much criticism, and certainly deserves that. And, after reading the list of technical features of this new mobile Koreans question arises: What is the terminal of Galaxy S III?

And the answer is: almost nothing.

Except for his appearance and his name, there’s nothing that makes this handset a true “mini” version of the Galaxy S III powerful original, considering that this terminal has a spectacular screen resolution, up to 2GB RAM (depending on version) and a powerful 4-core processor Exynos. That is why at first glance the Galaxy S III Mini disappoints.

The idea of this terminal was believed to be a high-end smartphone and the most advanced features to compete in the 4-inch range, covering the market that the iPhone has in its possession as Android manufacturers seem to have forgotten that there is, as all terminals pointers Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG and Sony, among others, have screens of 4.5 or more inches.

But this has not been what Samsung has presented, but a terminal that looks like a smaller Galaxy S III, but the name fits too big for it really has inside. This smartphone is just one of the bunch, if, has attractive features, but it really is not for any threat to the iPhone.

Samsung can do wonderful terminals such as Galaxy S II , the revolutionary Galaxy Note or the same Galaxy S III , but the Galaxy S III Mini not fall into this category, since instead of leverage that audience that wants the best hardware but in a terminal with a small screen or intermediate, has launched an Android phone again with nothing really special or unique. And that sounds harsh or too critical, I find this unfortunate.

Of course, we have to wait to try with our own hands this smartphone, which reach the European market during the month of November at an estimated price of 399 euros released.
