It may look like the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, but it’s not. What you’re seeing on your screen is the Samsung Galaxy Axiom, the phone that was outed earlier in the month and was hinted to head to U.S. Cellular.

If you’re intrigued by the marginally better specs that the Galaxy Axiom has compared to the Mini, we’re here to tell you that U.S. Cellular has now made the phone official. You can get the Galaxy Axiom on contract or without. The price for the former is $79 with a two-year service agreement, while the latter will set you back $399.

Some of the things that set the Axiom apart from its doppelganger are the inclusion of a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 processor and 4G LTE radio. As for the drawback, the phone will only ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Other features include a 4-inch display with 480 x 800 resolution, 4GB onboard storage, microSD support (up to 32GB), 5MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.3MP front-facing camera, NFC, and 2,100mAh battery. It’s worth to note that the Axiom supports Google Wallet out of the box.
