Samsung unveils Galaxy S III Mini

Samsung has unveiled its Galaxy S III mini on Thursday. The smartphone is similar to Galaxy S III version in appearance but has a lot of differences in features. Let's find out more about it in detail.

Samsung Galaxy S III Mini

On Thursday, Samsung launched its new Galaxy S III Mini phone which is a compact version of the Galaxy S III smartphone. The phone looks quite similar to its larger version, the Galaxy S III. The Galaxy S III mini runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is powered by 1 GHz processor. It has a 4 inch display that is smaller than Galaxy S III that was launched previously. For video recording and clicking photos, it has been provided with a 5 MP camera. It is available in 16 GB and 32 GB variants.

In mini version, the screen size is reduced to 4 inch which is a good decision from Samsung. The 4.8 inch screen of Galaxy S III was very large and too hard to handle. However, when it comes to screen resolution, Samsung has disappointed everyone. The screen resolution of Samsung Galaxy S III is 800 X 480 pixels which is very poor as compared to Galaxy S III's 1280 X 720 pixel resolution.

The primary camera has a resolution of 5 MP and is capable of recording 720p videos at 30 fps. An LED flash is also provided with the camera. The front camera is VGA which is quite disappointing.
Samsung Galaxy S III is already a successful launch from Samsung. Galaxy S III mini is a compact smartphone that inherits the features of the Galaxy S III smartphone. The Flagship model was a superb launch, but its huge screen made it hard to handle. May be Samsung realized this issue and decided to launch a compact model. Whatever be the reason, one more smartphone is added to the Galaxy family.
