Most of the speculation leading up to an event that Samsung will hold in Germany tomorrow has centered around the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, but it’s not speculation any longer. Samsung’s JK Shin has confirmed to reporters that the device will indeed make its debut and is geared toward the European market, where the company feels there is high demand for a device with a 4-inch display. Yes, the 4-inch display is also confirmed, which immediately begs the questions: when did we start considering a display larger than the first iPhone’s mini?
No sooner could Shin let the cat out of the bag than did German blog MobileGeeks get their hands on a leaked photo of the device. In case there is any confusion, it’s the smaller of the two phones pictured (I kid, you already knew that). The site also claims the phone will feature an 800×480 display resolution, a 1GHz STE U8420 chipset, 1GB RAM, and a 5MP camera. Pricing is said to be around 399 euros, but we’ll know the official deets as of tomorrow.
