Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini arrives, priced at Php14,990

Samsung Mobile Philippines has just announced local availability of their Galaxy S3 Mini smartphone. This Jellybean handset was announced back in October and banked on the growing popularity of the original Galaxy S3.

The handset is way smaller at 4.0 inches and has a much less powerful processor at only 1.0GHz dual-core. It does look like a smaller Galaxy S3 though.

      sana nilakihan nila ang capacity ng battery.
      matolerate naman ang dagdag na bigat basta it works longer

    Not bad, seems like they used the Galaxy S Duos body and shoved the Ace 2’s components with an extra 200 Mhz on the processor and Jelly Bean out of the box.
