A couple of days ago, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini was unveiled at a press event in Germany. Although it was only recently unveiled, it is already available for pre-order from a number of UK networks which are offering pay monthly Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini deals.
Samsung is confident that there is a market for this device in Europe. It is essentially a scaled down version of its bestseller the Galaxy S3. However there are a number of key differences. Of course, as the name suggests it is more compact, boasting a 4 inch screen rather than the 4.8 inch display of the Galaxy S3. Other features which have been downgraded include the camera which is now at 5 megapixels rather than 8, and a 1 GHz dual-core processor instead of 1.4 GHz quad-core powerhouse found in the Galaxy S3. Although the screen is smaller than that of the Galaxy S3, it is still rather sizable at 4 inches, which is the same size as the screen of the iPhone 5, and many people believe the Galaxy S3 Mini will prove to be a tough rival for the latest Apple smartphone.

Although several of these features are not as advanced as those used in the Galaxy S3, we must remember that there are many people out there who are not necessarily interested in the bragging rights that come with owning a phone with most powerful processor or the highest screen resolution. Instead, they would rather have an easy to use and versatile mid-range smartphone, and the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini perfectly fits the bill.
Vodafone, Orange and O2 are currently offering Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini deals, with the lowest price contract with a free handset starting at £21.50. A release date for the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini has not yet been released, but it is expected to hit stores at some point this month. The SIM free version will also be available when the handset is officially released.
