While most news bits coming from the Samsung stable revolve around the Galaxy S5, a much more wallet-friendly device just managed to grab our attention.
A lot of the internals remain unchanged, but something that matters most — processor — receives a bump with the Galaxy S3 mini Value Edition. Internally addressed as GT-I8200, the Galaxy S3 mini Value Edition now comes with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor to make the device better compatible with today’s standards.
Apart from the processor overhaul, the S3 mini Value Edition now features Android v4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. Everything else remains the same — there’s the same 4-inch 800 x 480p display, 1GB RAM, 8GB on-board storage, 5 mega-pixel / VGA camera duo, and a 1,500mAh battery.
This upgrade makes the device comparable to other Samsung phones like the iconic Galaxy S2, the Galaxy S Advance, etc. which come with a similar specs sheet. The S3 mini Value Edition can be bought by folks in the Netherlands for €180 ($249).
