A Samsung Exec confirmed the existence of the recently rumoured S3 Mini today. Speaking earlier, Samsung’s JK Shin, said the device will have a 4″ screen and will be officially unveiled tomorrow.

He didn’t offer up anymore details but as usual, the Internet is full of “confirmed by a trusted source” leaks.



So far the following specs seem to be the most agreed upon:

  • 4″ 800 x 480 pixel screen
  • 5mp camera around the back
  • 1500mAh battery
  • Dual core 1Ghz processor
  • 16GB internal memory, expandable via micro SD
  • Android 4.1 Jellybean


Given that the S3 has been a great success it makes sense for them to build on the name and offer a more affordable entry model. The 4″ screen will also be a hit with people who find the larger screens less manageable.

All should be revealed tomorrow and we’ll keep you updated.



And it’s confirmed. Pretty much all of the leaks were accurate. No word on Irish pricing or availability yet but we should expect it fairly soon.
