Its slim and substantial light-weight build allows the elegant yet powerful device to be seamlessly infused into the varied active lifestyles of people.

Bhd.

It also incorporates a new Google Search™ experience featuring Google Now™, which brings people just the right information even before them seeking for it.
Stylish and compact, the GALAXY S III mini shares the GALAXY S III’s breakthrough design of simplicity and elegance. Its ultra-minimal curved frame gives users a comfortable and perfect grip while delivering a rich natural feel on its nature-inspired theme reflected within the user interface. The GALAXY S III mini is slick and slim in-hand. Its enhanced portability complements the lifestyles of people on-the-go. The device is designed with a new standard, offering a great line of features which showcases its versatility even in a compact size. It also features a 4.0-inch Super AMOLED display offering a generous multimedia viewing experience in brilliant colour and clarity.
Packed with intelligent technology, the GALAXY S III mini is created to deliver a natural and intuitive interaction. S Voice, Samsung’s advanced natural language recognition software, works as a personal assistant with a simple voice command to unlock phone, play music, organise schedule or even launch the camera.
The GALAXY S III mini also understands people’s gestures ensuring a natural and intuitive experience. With Smart Stay, it cleverly keeps the display from timing out as long as the user is looking at it as the front-facing camera to track eye movements.
When reading a text message, Direct Call enables people to automatically dial a number simply by lifting the phone to the ear. Meanwhile the Smart Alert feature conveniently alerts people of missed calls or messages as the phone is picked up.
Content sharing is made easy and fast on the GALAXY S III mini using the S Beam. It allows people to share a 10MB music file in just two seconds simply by tapping on other S Beam-enabled devices, including the GALAXY S III or the GALAXY Note II, without using Wi-Fi or cellular signal. The ‘Buddy photo share’ function also allows photos to be simultaneously shared with friends from the camera or the photo gallery.
