Samsung Galaxy S III Mini arrives at AT&T on September 27 for only $0.99
AT&T has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini – yes, the one that’s been available in Europe and other parts of the world since November 2012.
The S III Mini will be offered by AT&T as “an option for customers seeking a premium smartphone experience at an outstanding value.” It will be sold for just $0.99 on contract. Pre-orders will start tomorrow, September 19, with the handset expected to be shipped on September 27.
AT&T’s Galaxy S III Mini runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and isn’t too different from the handset that we’ve seen around since last year. Its features include a 4 inch WVGA display, LTE and HSPA connectivity, 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 1,500 mAh battery. You can check out the handset here at AT&T.
Of course, if you’re in the market for almost free smartphones, you should know that AT&T is also offering the Pantech Flex, HTC One VX, and HTC 8X (with Windows Phone 8) for $0.99 on contract. Moreover, a certified “like-new” Galaxy S4 16GB costs $29.99 on contract.
According to previous rumors, AT&T is planning to release the newer Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, too. However, the carrier has not confirmed this, so we don’t know when (or if) it will happen. We will keep you posted anyway.
