Samsung Galaxy S III mini pictured wearing AT&T logo
The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is a great, compact Android smartphone. Announced back in May of 2013, it is marketed as an alternative to those who find the Galaxy S4 simply too big for their liking. Yet strangely, AT&T may be interested in offering the S4 mini's predecessor – last year's Samsung Galaxy S III mini. Or at least that's the assumption one would arrive at after seeing this legitimate-looking picture of the latter device carrying an AT&T logo on its back. That seems a bit odd, don't you think? It just makes little sense for AT&T to launch a mid-range Android smartphone from 2012 nearly a year after its debut, especially now that a newer model, namely the S4 mini, has been out for months.
The official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S III mini for AT&T is presumably scheduled for August 23 since that's the date displayed in the smartphone's interface. At this time, however, we have no guarantee that the handset will ever be launched by the carrier.
