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.
