Three promotes Galaxy S4 Mini and confirms it will stock the handset

Wireless carrier Three has provided a look at the Galaxy S4 Mini, which Samsung unveiled on Thursday.

Three spokesman Brendan Arndt showed off the 4.3in Galaxy S4 Mini, the younger sibling to the original, 5in Galaxy S4.

"Some of you out there have told me you don't want to carry around a 5in smartphone because it's simply too big," Arndt said. "Well, the Galaxy S4 Mini brings the premium and the best features from the Galaxy S4 in an extremely pocketable size."

The video shows off the Galaxy S4 Mini stacked atop a Galaxy S4 and the huge, 6.3in Galaxy Mega.

The sneak peek confirms that the Galaxy S4 Mini will be available to wireless customers. The 8GB version is currently up for pre-order via retailer Handtec for £389.99, but there is no solid release date. Three and Handtec say the device will be available "soon."

The Galaxy S4 Mini features a 4.3in Super AMOLED display and runs a 1.7-GHz dual-core processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. There's an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.9-megapixel one on the front.

The S4 Mini includes 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory (of which 5GB will actually be available), though that can be expanded up to 64GB via micro SD.
