Samsung Galaxy S III mini leaks again, this time in flesh and blood

Samsung Galaxy S III mini leaks again, this time in flesh and blood
Word about the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini is spreading like wildfire. It was only hours ago when the existence of the smartphone was confirmed, shortly after which its full specs sheet leaked on the web. And now, the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini has been caught on camera in flesh and blood, giving us a better idea as to what the handset actually looks like.

Samsung Galaxy S III mini leaks again, this time in flesh and blood
Basically, the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini is a bit like a shrunken down version of the S III, which should come as no surprise. It can also be regarded as a Samsung Galaxy S Duos look-alike. The leaked photo also confirms some of its alleged specs: the dual-core 1GHz processor and the 5-megapixel main camera. 

So that's what Samsung will be unveiling tomorrow: a 4-inch mid-ranger that will try to get the attention of European consumers with its milky-white outfit and reasonable price tag. Anyone excited to see the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini in person?

oh c'mon... This one doesn't even deserve the title SIII since it's nothing the SIII is except for design. If all the rumors turn out to be true then this is more a Galaxy Ace 2 in new design and a little spec bump: 3.8" to 4"; same resolution; probably same camera; 768MB to 1GB; same SOC with 800MHz to 1GHz... I would love this to be as powerful as the SIII or at least as the One S - then it would deserve this name. But as it looks right now this is just to fool customers into thinking of it as a smaller flagship phone.

I loved my Fascinate, which was 4". 4" is a good size for everyone. It might not be the fastest beast out there but it'll be a good solid all around phone.

4" is a good size for everyone? Really? I have big hands, so a 4" inch screen sucks. I doubt Shaq would like a 4 inch screen either. I wonder if big Fruity will sue, after-all THEY came up with a 4" screen first! I'm waiting for the Note 2. 5.5" of screen. surely not for everyone!

Shaq would need an iPad with cellular service to satisfy his screen size needs.

Good for you Mr BaseballGloveHands Redsux fan. Do you also have size 21 shoes like Shaq? The rest of us normal sized ppl are ok with 4". Bigger isnt always better.

It's more like ace 2 which is much cheaper than this.. I also don't think that it will be good for Samsung to name it S3 mini..

Not for me. But a very smart move by Samsung. Too bad the force you into a processor hit just for choosing the 4" version tho.. a better move would have been to keep it at GSIII specs. I wonder if they are highlighting the screen quality, or gimping on that too.

At least Samsung now has competition with the HTC One S.

This stands absolutely no chance, even compared to Xperia P (which is actually a good device!)...

Would prefer Sony Acro S over this anyday for same price ($550) on ebay.

There are loads who would like, prefer the same specs as the S3 on a 4inch. Why do they need to sacafice. I own a the black version, and it's Rooted. How am I a Troll? I Look at the iP4, huge specs on a 3.5inch screen.

Design not that great again... A small edition of SIII will be better than this.

what crap. I was hoping it would really be a "Mini SGS3", not a mid range phone with an SGS3 logo on it. I want a 4.5 inch quad exynos superphone. Is that so hard to ask!?!? lol

That's what i was saying befor..

You want a mini SGS3 but with a 4.5" screen?! That .3" mean that much to you?

Am I the only one that is disappointed that the only smaller phone with top end specs otherwise is the iPhone 5? Personally I prefer larger phones, but my girlfriend only uses small phones cuz she has tiny hands and it sucks that she has to deal with low or midrange specs because of it if she wants to use android. I wouldn't even mind having a second device that is smaller but still has a nice camera, high dpi screen and fast processor.
