Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Has A Mega Surprise, Tipped To Come Out Of The Box With Jelly Bean

By  | 

The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini will be out this month, apparently. If this is true – and this post is taken from unconfirmed reports from middling-reliable sources on other tech blogs – then it’ll arrive before the original Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update.

PopHerald reports that the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini might come with Jelly Bean out-of-the-box, just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which has Jelly Bean and the TouchWiz UI.

The latest rumors are saying that the mini Samsung Galaxy S3 might have a 4” touchscreen just like the iPhone 5 and will be out on October 11. The S3 Mini will also come with a slew of top-end specs just like the mega S3. This departs from the usual Samsung MO, as smaller versions of devices don’t tend to have the same wherewithal as their bigger relatives.

If the Samsung Galaxy S3 does have the same specs as its big bro’, it’ll have a quad-core Exynos chip, 1GB of RAM and 16/32GB storage options. PH adds that it’ll also have an 8MP rear and a 1.9MP front camera, and possibly Jelly Bean.

So what’s the point of this smaller Samsung Galaxy S3? Samsung is playing smart and has listened to people who have said that the mega S3 and its rellies (like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2) are fab, but just too big. These people are at risk of catching iPhone 5, and so Samsung has come up with a vaccine in the shape of a device that has all the same goods, but is easier to handle and pocket.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is, according to T-Mobile USA and various analysts, the best-selling Android so far. It has sold more than 20 million to date, and is expected to sell around 30 million by Christmas. It’s available on all major networks in the US, like Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, US Cellular and T-Mobile USA. All the models apart from T-Mobile’s support LTE. The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is expected to follow likewise.
