The Korean electronics giants provided the following recommended retail pricing for the device:
- Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini 8GB: R4,599;
- Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini 16GB: R4,999.
However, potential buyers should take note that the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is not simply a smaller version of the popular Samsung Galaxy S3.
As the pricing might indicate, the smaller smartphone packs hardware that is far less powerful than its bigger brother.
