When it comes to smartphone screen size, there seems to be a few different camps. Some of us belong to the “bigger is better” faction, others believe the sweetspot is somewhere between 4.1-inches and a 4.9-inches. Then there are those that want 4-inch and smaller designs.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has great hardware and a sexy design, but it might be a little too big for some users out there. The solution seems to be at hand with various rumors claiming that a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is on its way. Now a Nordic retailer has even revealed that it will be selling the alleged Mini smartphone for a little over $500.
The retailer doesn’t give us official pictures or any solid leads on the specs, but it does seem to suggest that the phone won’t feature NFC in the base version. We still don’t know much for sure, but rumors claim it will have a WVGA display, a 5MP camera, a dual-core processor and the power of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean aboard.
A smaller Samsung Galaxy S3 could certainly put Samsung in an even better position to compete with the Apple iPhone. Many iPhone users tend to take issue with the larger screen size found in many Android devices, so this device could be perfect for iPhone users that are considering making the switch.
A lot is still left unanswered when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. Hopefully we will know for sure by October 11th, when a German press event is expected unveil the new smartphone to the world.
