Last night, we had the chance to attend the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini which will be retailed at only P14,990 starting February. Methinks this is ideal for smartphone users who have always dreamt of owning the Galaxy S3 but were put off by the steep price. As its name implies, the S iii mini is smaller, cheaper but performs the same fully-loaded functions.
Some of the specs we spotted on the S iii Mini:
latest Android operating system, Jelly Bean
4.0″ WVGA Super AMOLED Display
Available colors: marble white, pebble blue, garnet red and titanium gray.
The intelligent features of the Galaxy S3 remain in this mini phone such as Smart Stay (which detects if the user is looking at the display so that it doesn’t easily time out), Smart Alert, Direct Call and Samsung’s advanced messaging service Ch@tON.
Samsung Philippines has teamed up with Globe to offer the Galaxy S iii mini free at Super Plan 999 which comes with P900 consumable, 50 MB data and two call and text freebies which you can change monthly. Both the Galaxy S3 and S iii mini will also be bundled up together in an exclusive Globe Platinum offer coming soon.
