Another Samsung Galaxy S III, Really!

Samsung has launched yet another smartphone under its flagship Galaxy S line. This time, the new model is being touted as the S III Mini. Now, don't be deceived by the "mini" in the name, because to be quite frank, there is really nothing mini about this phone. At a whopping 4 inches, can you seriously call that monstrosity of a phone 'mini'!? All jokes aside though, Samsung is really redefining what constitutes a reasonable phone size, because 4 inches is pushing it. Just look at Apple with their new IPhone 5, they hardly wanted to increase their phone size to 4 inches, and even then, its only the length that they increased, not the diagonal length.

According to the spec sheet just released, this Android 4.1 phone features a dual-core 1GHz chip (which is good news for the 1,500mAh battery), 1GB RAM, 8 or 16GB of internal storage plus an extra 32GB maximum via microSD. The 4-inch Super AMOLED screen comes with a WVGA resolution, while the main camera takes five-megapixel photos plus 720p video, and there's a VGA front-facing camera as well for fans of video chats. There's obviously the usual bundle of radios as well, including 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, GPS, GLONASS, FM radio, Bluetooth 4.0 (LE) and even NFC, but for now, this 111.5-gram TouchWiz device will only support HSPA 900/1900/2100 networks along with EDGE 850/900/1800/1900.
