Samsung announced in a press statement today (23 January 2013) that it has launched the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini in South Africa.

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.

The device is set to have the following specifications:
