It’s official. Samsung has confirmed that it will be launching the 4 inch version of their flagship Galaxy S III device called the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini today. Samsung’s Mobile chief JK Shin was quoted in the Korean press as saying, “There’s a lot of demand for a 4-inch screen device in Europe. Some call it an entry-level device, but we call it mini.”
The device will be launched in Frankfurt, Germany. No other details about the smartphone have be revealed by the South-Korean firm. Since it is believed to be an entry-level device, it’s likely that the device will cost much less. No news on when it will come to India and at what price.
According to the rumour mills, the Galaxy S III Mini will have a 4-inch Super AMOLED display with WVGA resolution, a 5-megapixel camera, dual core-processor and will run on the latest Android OS, Jelly Bean.

According to Engadget, retailers in Europe’s northernmost countries listed two version of the Mini with the codename GT-I8190 in blue and white, with or without an NFC chip, for $540 and $560, respectively.
