Another day, another press call for a new release. This time its Samsung’s turn, with speculation rife that the firm is set to debut the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini on Thursday 11 October.
The manufacturer’s German arm has called the great and good to a special launch event and tantalised them with the promise that they will be delivering “something small.”
Translated from German to English the invite roughly reads “something small will be really big” followed by “get ready for a little sensation.”
To add further weight to the idea that the event will be used to showcase the new device, the distinctive ‘S’ logo features in the middle of the invite.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini release date
We don’t know for sure when the Galaxy S3 Mini will be released – we don’t even know if it exists yet! But if we do see a launch on 11 October, Samsung is unlikely to want to hang around.
Rumours already circulating about the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini suggest that the smartphone could be released by the end of the year, to capitalise on the S3′s success in the run-up to Christmas.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini specs and price
The device is set to feature a 4-inch screen with an 800 x 480 resolution display. We’re also expecting it to ship with the latest Android OS, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and run on a run on a dual-core processor.
As a final touch the smartphone is also set to feature a 5MP camera. Question marks still remain about onboard storage, and whether the device will feature a second camera.
In terms of price, we can expect the S3 Mini to be at the lower end of the spectrum, with a consumer-friendly £250 price tag.
With the S3 a runaway success around the globe, it’ll be interesting to see how a scaled-down version performs. Roll on 11 October!
