Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini heads to UK on November 8, no official pricing detail available yet

When it comes to its 4.8-inch display, we totally get that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a bit of an acquired taste that may not appeal to folks with freakishly tiny hands (calm down, you can say the same about those with freakishly big ones). This was probably the thinking behind the Galaxy S3 Mini.

If you like what you see of the Mini, regardless of the specs, you’ll be pleased to hear that the phone is coming to the UK on November 8.

As part of the package, Samsung has announced that Galaxy S3 Mini will come with two pre-installed games, The Sims 3 and Bejeweled 2. While the company said that you should be able to get the phone from the usual stores come launch day, it has failed to provide one crucial piece of information, the 4-inch phone’s price.

With Samsung keeping mum, we turn to retailers in the country for some enlightenment. The Galaxy S3 Mini has been up for pre-order at Clove for a few weeks now, where it’s being offered SIM-free for £298.80.

Anyone interested in getting the Galaxy S3 in mini flavor? Do you think £300 is a fair price for the phone?

    When will my Samsung Galaxy S Advance be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which has almost the same specs as the GSIII Mini?

    Nice to see Samsung offering a great device for those who don’t want a 4.8 inch display and perhaps that should be their trend going forward with the Galaxy S line, offer a Maxi and Mini sort of like Apple but less of a bend you over move like they did with the iPad 3 (err New iPad), now the iPad 4 Retina (yet the iPad 3 was already Retina) and now the iPad mini which has the same specs as the iPad 2. Oh wait.

    Still offering 2 sized Galaxy S devices with each launch will help them appeal to customers who want the latest Galaxy S device but can’t fit it into their skinny jeans.
