Samsung Hints at Galaxy S III Mini Launch on October 11th

It appears as though Samsung is prepping a smaller size Galaxy S III device to launch a little over a week from now. The company's German division has been sending out press invites, and while it doesn't come right out and confirm the existence of a Galaxy S III Mini, it strongly hints at it.

Translated via Google, the text reads: "As large and small can be so small can be big." Yeah, not very helpful there. As luck would have it, TechRadar happens to have a German native on staff, who provided a much better (and accurate) translation.

"That's how big small can be," the translated text in the press invite correctly reads.

Samsung Galaxy S III
Samsung may launch a smaller version of the Galaxy S III (shown above) on October 11th.

There's a familiar Galaxy "S" logo on the background of the invite, so whatever it is, it will be part of the Galaxy S family. Previous rumors suggest the Galaxy S III Mini won't actually be all that tiny, at least not when compared with other smartphones on the market. It's rumored to have a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, which is 0.8 inches smaller than the regular Galaxy S III and the same size as the iPhone 5, along with a 5MP rear-facing camera.

Other likely features include a slower processor (compared to the Galaxy S III) and lower price tag.
