Samsung Galaxy S III Mini confirmed: 4.0-inch screen, will be unveiled tomorrow
We’ve seen the poster hinting at the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini, but we never knew whether it was real or not. Now, Samsung’s own JK Shin confirms to the Korean press it is, and it is coming tomorrow, October 11th.

Samsung is holding an event in Germany tomorrow, and it’s clear that the device will be focused exactly on the European market. Shin only confirmed that the Galaxy S III Mini will have a smaller, 4-inch screen, and obviously a lower price, but there are no further details.

"We'll be launching a 4-inch Galaxy S III on the 11th in Germany," Shin said. "There's a lot of demand for a 4-inch screen device in Europe. Some call it an entry-level device, but we call it 'mini.'"

Designwise, the handset should be very similar to the original S III. All of that sounds really good, and it comes just as the iPhone 5 has arrived, raising questions about the benefits of single-handed usage on a smaller screen. Samsung might just deliver that tomorrow, stay tuned.

Screen resolution will be the key factor.

Apple Strategy: We release whatever we want to, customer should adjust their requirement! Samsung Strategy: We release every variation of product to match every customer's twisted demands! Like sammy for that. As far as the design concern, as yesterday someone said in the comments, samsung is all about offering beast over beauty!

Plastic and plastic... stale thing to say and pointless. I've never seen someone who uses his 'Metal' iPhone without a protective case, while in case of samsung I see many people who prefer original feel of the device, without a case.

more likely the screen resolution will go down to qHD (275PPI) which is still great. processor clock speed might also get down to around 1.2 GHz to compromise the smaller battery

Heck Apple will not like Samsung using the word "MINI" for their product line because they will claim that it will hurt their iPad MINI sales. Looks like Samsung teases Apple on purpose :)

Are they gonna retain the quad core in it as well, maybe under-clocked to 1GHz.

Apple is trying to mimic android with 7-inch tablets. Meanwhile samsung is trying to satisfy apple users' complaints of needing small screens.
