1 February 2013, Singapore – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, announced the launch of the GALAXY S III mini, a compact version of the flagship smartphone GALAXY S III in Singapore.
The GALAXY S III mini is powered by Android™ 4.1 (Jelly Bean), comes with a new Google Search™ experience featuring Google Now™, which brings you just the right information, before you even ask.
Stylish and compact, the GALAXY S III mini’s 4.0-inch Super AMOLED display offers a generous viewing experience and its compact size gives users a comfortable grip and allows a convenient one-hand operation.
The GALAXY S III mini also understands your gestures to make using your phone easier and more natural: With Smart Stay, the phone’s camera tracks your eyes and keeps the screen lit as long as you are looking at it. When reading a text message from a friend, Direct Call enables you to automatically dial a call simply by lifting the phone to your ear; and Smart Alert conveniently alerts you to missed calls or messages as soon as you pick up your phone.
Content sharing is easy and fast on the GALAXY S III mini: Its S Beam feature lets you share a 10MB music file in just two seconds by simply tapping on another S Beam-enabled device including GALAXY S III or GALAXY Note II, even without a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. The ‘Buddy photo share’ function also allows photos to be easily and simultaneously shared with all your friends pictured in an image directly from the camera or the photo gallery. The phone also supports Pop up play, which allows you to play a video anywhere on your screen while simultaneously running other tasks.
The GALAXY S III mini will be available in Pebble Blue and Marble White, at S$568 (without contract) from 2 February 2013.
