Meet the latest addition to Samsung’s mobile family, the Galaxy S3 Mini. The rumor mill has been buzzing in recent days about its anticipated arrival, and the Mini looks like it lines up pretty well with leaked specifications that preceded its official debut.

If you were expecting a scaled-down Galaxy S3, you’ll be disappointed. It’s not simply a Lilliputian version of Samsung’s 4.8-inch flagship. Instead, the Galaxy S3 Mini is a modestly-sized, modestly-specced phone that will appeal to consumers with a mid-range budget and those who don’t find larger phones to be a good fit.

Instead of a homegrown processor, Samsung has opted for a dual-core NovaThor U8420 chip clocked at 1GHz. While it obviously won’t offer the same type of power as a quad-core Exynos, it should provide a good mix of performance and efficiency. The Galaxy S3 Mini also shirks LTE for HSPA and packs Bluetooth 4.0 for additional battery-friendliness. As for cameras, the Mini sports a 5MP rear shooter and a humble VGA cam for video calling.
