Samsung announces Galaxy S III Mini
Samsung has revealed its Galaxy S III Mini, a compact version of its flagship smartphone with a four-inch screen.
The device has less processing power than the Galaxy S III, with the Mini having a dual-core 1GHz compared to the S III's 1.4GHz quad-core processor. It will come running Jelly Bean, the latest version of Google's Android operating system. It also has features such as Samsung's S Voice recognition software and Smart Stay, which means the phone is lit so long as a consumer is looking at it. A release date has yet to be confirmed.
Simon Stanford, vice-president for the UK and Ireland telecommunications and networks division, said: 'The award winning Galaxy S III has been extremely well received globally since it launched earlier this year so we are thrilled to be able to offer our customers the same revolutionary design, intuitive usability and intelligence in a mini version. We will continue to develop smartphones to cater for a variety of customer needs and this latest release demonstrates our ongoing commitment to offering our customers more choice at every price point.'
