Samsung says that this isn't an entry-level phone

Samsung has been incredibly successful with its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S III. The company sold 20 million units in the first 100 days the smartphone was available.
 
Now, however, Samsung believes that there's a market in Europe for a version of that smartphone with a smaller screen. The Galaxy S III has a massive 4.8-inch screen and Samsung believes that a version of the phone with a four-inch screen would be popular in Europe to compete directly with the iPhone 5.

The head of Samsung's mobile business unit said recently that the company would launch a smaller version of the Galaxy S III in Europe on Thursday.

The device is expected to pack in a 800x480 resolution display, 1GHz STE U8420 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 5MP shooter on the back..

Ugh no coffee yet, sorry for that mess...

I went from an Incredible (3.7 inch) to an S3. The Incredible when overlapped with my phone fits entirely in its screen area. I imagine the mini would be comparible

It is off. Eyeballing it is pretty obvious that the 2 pics are not 4 and 4.8 inch diagonally. Holding my GS3 up and zooming my screen so the GS3 above is 4.8 inches on my screen and using a ruler, the LCD's in the pics pics are 3.6 inches and 4.8 inches. Not a big deal, its just someones photochop, the mini will be 4 inches and slightly larger than the pic above indicates.

Yeah, it's really off. Take a look at this accurate comparison I made. Note: I didn't adjust the screen size at all to account for the small aspect ratio difference.
