RumorTT: Samsung to announce pint-sized S III on October 11, dubbed the Galaxy S III Mini

Rumor: Samsung to release a miniturized version of its flagship Galaxy S III device on Oct 11

The Samsung Galaxy S III is a giant phone, there's no two ways about it. Not wanting to be out done by Apple's rumored iPad mini, the South Korean electronics giant is rumored to be working on a pint-sized Galaxy S III, which is affectionately being called the Samsung Galaxy S III mini.




Rumor has it that the device will be announced on October 11 and will come with similar specs to its older brother, save for the giant screen. This is good news for consumers, as many feel the current S III is too large. Indeed, it is the reason I went with the new iPhone. I felt the screen was just too big and wouldn't fit in my hand nicely, or my pocket, for that matter.


Samsung can use this shrinking of its flagship device to steal back some of the press from Apple and all of the press going to the iPhone 5. Furthermore, it could use it's own shrink to steal press away from the rumored shrinking of the iPad by Apple. Only time will tell if the clues provided by the invitation to an event in Germany will prove true.
