South Korea based Samsung Electronics is all set to launch its new four-inch Galaxy SIII Mini GT-I8190 smartphone, in Europe to compete against Apple's new iPad Mini.
The new mini Galaxy SIII smartphone is expected to feature a 1GHz dual-core STE U8420 processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, a 5mp camera and the company's TouchWiz user interface along with a WVGA Super AMOLED display.
Samsung Mobile Communications head J.K. Shin said that a 4-inch Galaxy S III will be launched in Germany.
"There's a lot of demand for a four-inch screen device in Europe. Some call it an entry-level device, but we call it 'mini,'" Shin said.
