Samsung Galaxy S III
A cryptic invite to a Samsung event in Germany has the tech press speculating that the South Korean manufacturer could be preparing to launch a 4-inch version of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S III.
With the launch of the Galaxy S III and its 4.8-inch screen earlier this year, Samsung set the bar for Apple to meet with its next iPhone. As expected, the iPhone 5 came sporting a larger screen, albeit still smaller, narrower and more pocket-friendly than the Samsung device.
Now – if the rumours are to be believed – we have Apple on the verge of launching a smaller iPad and Samsung ready to introduce a shrunken Galaxy S III. Can you keep up?
Spotted by BGR, German mobile news site MobiFlip has published an invite received from Samsung for a press event taking place on 11 October. In German, the invite implies that something small is coming from something big and that invitees should get ready for a ‘sensation’.
The background of the invite sports the ‘S’ logo used for Samsung’s Galaxy S brand of smartphones, leading many to believe that this will be the unveiling of a 4-inch ‘Galaxy S III Mini’, packing the features of the flagship device into an iPhone 5-sized model.
While nothing is for certain just yet, we’ll be keeping our eyes on what the tech press in Germany have to say come next week.
