Samsung confirmed the existence of the Galaxy S3 Mini just a few hours ago, and now it seems we have a leaked press render and purported specs to go with it. According to German blog MobileGeeks, which obtained the render above, the S3 Mini will sport a 1GHz dual-core ST Ericsson U8420 CPU, along with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a microSD card slot. That's apparently packed behind a 4-inch WVGA SuperAMOLED display, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Sammy's TouchWiz Nature UX. Other notables include a 5MP rear camera and 1500mAh battery.
So it's not quite a Galaxy S3 packed into a smaller shell, as some had hoped, but the Galaxy S3 Mini could be successful in its own right, assuming the price tag isn't too high. Speaking of which, the site reports that the Mini will go on sale from €399 SIM-free in the eurozone, which isn't terribly expensive.
Would you be up for this kind of miniature, mid-range, Jelly Bean-based handset at this price point? Let us know in the comments.
We'll know more about the Galaxy S3 Mini after tomorrow's announcement.
