As promised, Samsung has made the Galaxy S III Mini official. We’ve heard initial rumors including specs and we’ve even seen renders ahead of the announcement followed shortly by pricing reports from retailers. With the press release out, the Galaxy S III Mini is now official and the specifications are no longer subject of rumors.
There’s a dual-core 1GHz processor under the hood with a four-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, 8- and 16GB internal storage options with microSD expansion support, five-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, VGA webcam and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. Don’t get all excited about the RAM: the press release states it packs “8Gb”. Note that they’re talking gigabits and not gigabytes (not sure why, probably marketing?). 8Gb corresponds to 1GB and that’s the amount of random access memory on the phone. There’s also NFC as well as the usual suspects alongside a 1,500mAh battery.
There is no official wording on pricing and availability but our friends over at Clove already have it on pre-order.
