The new Galaxy S III Mini might be smaller, but it also compromises a lot for a svelte form-factor

We first reported on Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S III Mini yesterday, and as promised, the device was officially announced today. The smartphone is aimed at Apple's new iPhone 5, which also uses a 4" display, instead of the monstrous 4.8" unit found in the standard Galaxy S III.
 
As previously reported, the Galaxy S III Mini packs in a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4" WVGA Super AMOLED display, a 5MP rear-facing camera (VGA front-facing camera for video conferencing), and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The smartphone will come with a 1,500 mAh battery and includes FM radio support. One big omission, however, is LTE connectivity.
 
Compared to the powerhouse Galaxy S III, its little brother is definitely not quite up to par.
 
“The GALAXY S III introduced a new concept of smartphone that has proven hugely popular around the world. We’re now delighted to bring its revolutionary design, intuitive usability and intelligence to the GALAXY S III mini in a more compact form,” said JK Shin, President and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “We continue to make every effort to provide extraordinary mobile experiences to meet a wide variety of user needs.”
 
The Galaxy S III Mini measures 4.78" x 2.48" x 0.38" and weighs 3.93 ounces.
 
There is no word yet on pricing or availability for the Galaxy S III Mini.

I think the idea was more "You know all of those things you're waiting for? We've had those... for years." It wasn't an "Our phone has a bigger screen than yours" it was we already have that. You could make the argument about Samsung making other phones that have a smaller screen too. I think that if this is meant to compete with the iPhone it's through variety and not through a "Screen Size Battle". A lot of people have complained about the size of the phone. I love my S3, but this screen size isn't for everyone.

the s3 screen size is too big for my wife and her friends, who are not tech savvy. I freaking love it tho.
