Samsung, here is the Galaxy S III Mini

samsung galaxy miniSamsung unveiled the new Galaxy S III Mini: reduced the size of the display, but also reduced the hardware specifications.
Who is waiting just a scaled down version of the Galaxy S III will probably revise the content of their xpectations: the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini has now been officially revealed, but the reduction of the diagonal of the display corresponds also to a general impoverishment of the specification, leading to made the device a sort of mid-range (price likely to be reduced, but not yet official), that the Galaxy S III inherits especially name and line design.

The feature which more than any other defines the new device is the size: the meaning of "mini" associated with the name "Galaxy S III" requires us to reflect on the immediate placement of the device, the diagonal of the display has been reduced to 0, 8 inches to meet the taste of those who, despite liking the specifications of the Galaxy S III, I am not able to appreciate the increased size of 4.8 inches. In a recent advertisement of the iPhone 5, Apple spoke specifically of "common sense" to describe four inches as the ideal size for a smartphone, the space within which the average human thumb is able to act without any special effort . Matter of common sense and ergonomics, in short, to which Samsung has responded with a special device with which to close the bud Apple's ambitions to define their own priorities on this type of dimension.
However, the size is likely to become a red herring. The Galaxy S III Mini, in fact, is reduced not only in the diagonal of the display, but also in the specifications. The definition of screen passes from 1280 × 720 to 800 × 480, while the processor switches to a quad-core 1.5 GHz for a dual-core 1GHz processor. Absent the 4G LTE connectivity, while the internal memory is limited to versions 8 and 16GB (microSD that can be extended by up to a total maximum of 32GB).
The Galaxy S III Mini comes on the market with Android OS 4.1 Jelly Bean and at a price of 399 euro alleged: the presentation held in Germany has not released details in this regard, as is currently unclear whether the device will be available internationally or not.
"Mini" in many ways, in fact. But by definition a step below the Galaxy S III and iPhone 5. This does not necessarily mean a step back, but the name probably left to assume anything other than a device that inherits from its predecessor only line design and nomenclature.
