Description

The Samsung Galaxy S III mini is an affordable 4.0-inch handset that comes with the latest of Android, 4.1 Jelly Bean. The interesting thing about the handset is that it has all the unique features that came in the original S III: TouchWiz with the S Voice assistant, SmartStay that shuts off the screen when you’re not looking at it and S Beam with tap to share for songs and files as big as 10MB. Hardware-wise, the Samsung Galaxy S III mini is a mid-range device with 4.0-inch Super AMOLED WVGA (480 x 800-pixel) screen, 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera and microSD slot.
