Samsung’s latest handset will cost just under £300

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini release expected Nov 2nd

Although there is no official word from Samsung, Phones4U has revealed that it will be shipping the Galaxy S3 Mini from November 2nd.

Announced last week, a number of mobile phone retailers have started listing the S3 Mini on their sites.

Clover and Unlocked Mobiles are both offering the phone for just under £300 and Phones4U has said that contracts will start at £25 per month on two year deals.

Carphone Warehouse has also announced that the phone will be available for pre order but has not yet released a price.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini will have a dual-core system-on-chip, 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a 4-inch 800 x 480 AMOLED display, 5MP rear camera, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and NFC capabilities.

“The award winning Galaxy S3 has been extremely well received globally since it launched earlier this year so we are thrilled to be able to offer our customers the same revolutionary design, intuitive usability and intelligence in a mini version.” Said Simon Stanford, vice president, telecommunications and networks division, Samsung UK and Ireland.

The size may be mini, but with the full Samsung Galaxy S3 going for around £370, the price still seems quite high.

Vodafone, Orange and O2 have all announced that they will sell Samsung’s latest handset.
