Samsung is reportedly going to launch a mini version of its flagship Galaxy S III smartphone on October 11. Company is sending out press invites
(and physical ones at that!) for an event in Germany.
The invite shows a big 'S' in the middle suggesting that it will be a Galaxy S series smartphone and the tag line "something small will be really big" on the invite indicates towards Galaxy S III Mini.
The Galaxy S III Mini first surfaced back in August, when a report indicated its release in Q4 this year. The report also stated that the S III Mini will feature 4-inch Super AMOLED WVGA display, dual-core processor, and a 5MP rear camera. Other specs and the Android version on-board are still unknown.
The announcement comes within weeks of Galaxy Note II announcement in Germany itself. Company has seen great success with its Galaxy series and the latest numbers from comScore indicated that it has helped the company stay on top in US smartphone market.
Samsung is also continuing to stay at the helm of Indian smartphone market, given the devices launches in almost every segment and Samsung Galaxy series has become a known sub-brand in the country.
Samsung Galaxy S III Mini, if real, is likely to be a big hit in markets like India, where not every can afford the company flagship Galaxy S III.
