Samsung Galaxy S III mini visits FCC to stir up rumors of U.S. launch
The 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen is closer to the display on the Samsung Galaxy S II while the dual-core 1GHz NovaThor processor is so last year. We won't even get into the 5MP camera on back. Still, there is demand for a 4 inch phone like this in Europe, according to Samsung, and the lack of 4G LTE connectivity would really seem to make this a hard sell in the states.
Priced at 439 EUR ($568 USD), the FCC sign-off does leave a crack in the door for a future U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S III mini to be sold.

I'm not too sure about this, but I am indeed happy with my Galaxy S III.

some people just really want a 4 inch phone. they don't feel the need for more screen estate. but I so wish we have a high end 4 inch phone.

There is NO reason why this cannot have LTE in it.. Disappointed.
