Samsung Introduces the Galaxy S III Mini: Minimum Size, Maximum Features

Does size matter? According to Samsung, small is in as it launches a miniature version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. The smaller unit boasts of a sleek but reduced design that does not limit its functions. Samsung assures that the Galaxy III Mini will provide users the same powerful performance and function but in a new sense of form and style.

To make the answers more interesting, Samsung held a media event last night where celebrity DJs debated on various topics in relation to sizes. Some of the arguments were reasonable while a few were downright hilarious. Sam YG’s hosting further made the evening very entertaining.

Designed for Humans” -- that’s the core essence and philosophy that Samsung has for its GALAXY line including the S III Mini. This latest gadget features an organic design inspired by nature, which provides the perfect grip and ergonomic handling.  It also comes with a nature-themed user interface and sounds that match its outer design.

And just like a race car, size does not limit this phone’s power as it is equipped with a dual-core processor to let users seamlessly enjoy Samsung features such as the Pop-up Play function that allows you to do two things at once effortlessly. The S III Mini runs on the latest Android OS, Jelly Bean, which provides super smooth graphics and transitions as well as access to the new Google services such as Google Now.

Like the Galaxy S III, its mini-me version has the same intelligent features including: Smart Stay (which detects if the user is looking at the display and keeps the display from timing out until the user looks away), Smart Alert (which detects when a user returns to the phone and gives him a brief vibrating nudge to inform about missed calls, calendar events, and new messages) and Direct Call (which allows a user to make a call simply by lifting the phone to his or her ear while writing or reading a message or while specific contact details are brought up to the display).

Aside from the stuff already mentioned, the S III Mini’s users can enjoy various Samsung hub services and advanced messaging service called Ch@tON, as shared by all Samsung Mobile users.

At the moment, the current mobile developers and designers may move towards making phones that are bigger, wider, and longer but Samsung continues to set its own trend with the introduction of the Galaxy S III Mini, a smartphone that mixes performance and sleekness.
