Smaller flagship phone may be in the works
The Galaxy S3 has turned into a great smart phone selling over 20 million handsets in over 4 months. And that is a significant accomplishment for Samsung. Rumors have been circulating for the past few months that Samsung is working on the Galaxy S4 which would be announced and released in the first quarter. While that rumor was denied by Samsung, the Galaxy S4 rumors have continued as there is something in the works over at Samsung. The question is just exactly what it is they are working on to shake up the market. And the latest one involved Samsung releasing the Galaxy S3 Mini.
All of this has risen to the boiling point with invites to a Samsung event on October 11th with the words “something small will be really big”. That would tend to indicate that Samsung is going to be showing something which will have a big impact and will not be as large as one might expect. That fits exactly into the current rumors for the Galaxy S3 Mini, though some are calling it the Galaxy S4.
The rumored Galaxy S3 Mini will come with 3 GB of RAM. The increase shows the smart phone is ready to handle the increasing demands of apps on smart phones. Rumors are indicating the device name as GT-I8190 along with reports of seeing the Mini showing up on Samsung Mobile’s WAP site. This phone is rumored to come with a 4 inch screen for direct competition with the iPhone 5. So much of this is rumor that it is difficult to know how much substance there is to this.
But there is obviously something happening with Samsung and their October 11th event where it is expected they will be making an announcement for some new product. And the rumors for the Galaxy S3 Mini or Galaxy S4 would appear to be the most probably item to be revealed. We do not have long to wait before we know whether all these rumors have substance or not.
And the Galaxy S3 Mini seems to be stepping on rumors for the iPad Mini which is rumored to be announced on October 17th. Interesting how Samsung continues to take the thunder out of Apple products.
