Published On: Fri, Oct 12th, 2012 | Tech Business | By BioNews

Samsung Electronics said Friday that it unveiled a new version of Galaxy S3 smartphone to better compete with Apple’s newest smartphone iPhone5.

The Galaxy S3 mini, the compact version of the flagship Galaxy S3, came with a 4.0-inch Super AMOLED display, according to an e-mailed statement.

The screen size was smaller than the 4.8-inch Galaxy S3, but was the same as the one of Apple’s iPhone5. Galaxy Note2, the new phablet model launched by Samsung, has a 5.5-inch screen, reported Xinhua.

Except for the screen size, the compact version held most features of the Galaxy S3. The mini model is powered by 4.1 Jelly, Bean, the latest version of Android operating system, featuring a 1GHz dual-core processor.

S Voice, the language recognition software, allows users to unlock the phone, play favourite songs or organise schedule with simple voice command.

With Smart Stay feature, the phone’s camera tracks users’ eyes and keeps the screen lit as long as the users are looking at it.

“The Galaxy S3 introduced a new concept of smartphone that has proven hugely popular around the world. We’ re now delighted to bring its revolutionary design, intuitive usability and intelligence to the Galaxy S3 mini in a more compact form,” said Shin Jong-kyun, head of Samsung’s IT & mobile communications division.
