We've known for quite sometime now that the Samsung Galaxy S III mini
will come new colour options
, apart from the existing White by the end of December last year or beginning 2013.
Samsung dedicated blog SamMobile
has now received some pictures of the compact Galaxy S III smartphone from a source showcasing the new colours.
These are Titan Gray, Garnet Red and Onyx Black, precisely what was expected earlier. It is needless to say that the Red and Black colour options look identical to the bigger Galaxy S III 4G LTE recently launched in Sapphire Black and Garnet Red colours in Korea.
The company has already introduced two additional colour options for the international version of the Galaxy S III as well, Amber Brown and Titanium Grey.
Samsung is indeed extending colour options across its high-end devices. More recently, the Galaxy Note II was also spotted in a Black variant
. SamMobile had earlier mentioned that the Note II will also get new colours namely Amber Brown, Topaz Blue and Ruby Wine in addition to the current Marble White and Titanium Gray.
Whether or not all markets will get to see the new colours still remains unknown.
Apart from adding new colours, Samsung is now shipping the Galaxy S III mini with the latest version of Android Jelly Bean, v4.1.2 in Vietnam and Indonesia. Other Asian regions should soon be getting the good news as well. When launched, the Galaxy S III mini devices came out with Android 4.1.1.
To recap, the Galaxy S III mini was launched in October last year and is a miniature version of the company's current flagship smartphone the Samsung Galaxy S III. It features a 4-inch screen and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The smartphone inherits Galaxy S III's features like S Voice, Smart Stay, Direct Call and S Beam.
The compact S III version is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and features a 5-megapixel camera. It has a 1500 mAh battery and 8/16GB internal storage options.
