The new Samsung Galaxy S3 Slim isn't that new, and isn't an S3 - it's a rebranded Galaxy Win Pro
The Galaxy S3 Slim (pictured on the left) looks just like the Galaxy Win Pro, has the same dimensions and weight (133 x 66 x 9.7 mm, 139 grams), the same model number (SM-G3812), and exactly the same features: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 4.5-inch TFT display with 540 x 960 pixels, quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, 5MP rear camera with Flash, VGA front-facing camera, 8GB of internal memory, etc.
The price of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Slim isn’t known at the moment, but it shouldn’t be too high anyway.

I think for the price of one of these you could buy a regular S3 that has way better specs!

Not in Brazil. Phone cost a lot more than they do everywhere else.

Here from Brazil. S3 NOW, at about $450,00. I´m owner of a Note 3 monster (and yes I have a old Nokia 808 just for run and stills). But the majority here prefer (who can) to spend a little bit more and buy a GOOD phone, not a low end like this one. That should be a fail.
Here´s the prices (off contract) :
iPhone - $ 1,300
Note 3 / Z1 / HTC / 1020 / 808 - $ 850
Nokia 820 etc - $ 270,00
And ... NO ! WE DON´T WANT the worldcup here (sorry)

true. regular s3 price on most countries (except those with absurd inflation like brazil) is about the same as galaxy win pro / grand 1. But only if you can still find an S3. Most of my friends S3 (or most of their samsung phones) already broke down...

Brazil doesn't have absurd inflation, it has high taxes for tech products.

We have absurd inflation AND high taxes for smartphones, cars, houses, clothes, foods, etc

If you think you have absurd inflation you should visit Argentina! When you buy a car, you could sell it years later at the exact same price you buy it or even more expensive! Our inflation is bigger than the devaluation of a car!

*facepalm* who would ever buy this device.

Lol, no one is asking you to buy it. This phone only for Winners and Professionals, so obviously not you

With that design, it could be any other galaxy device.

Something in a 2nd world country is called something else in another 2nd world country on the other side of the world? Stop the presses, this has never happened before!!!!

Looking at the stars is no different from looking at a tech shop. So many galaxies. Millions and millions of galaxies.

The Galaxy S3 Slimmeddownonfeatures. I don't like it when low-end phones are rebranded with high-end names, but whatever sells.

Almost identical specs to the Moto G, except for the lower screen resolution.
