Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini release date for UK set for November 8

The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini finally has a confirmed availability date in  the UK. Samsung announced that the midget-sized Galaxy S3 clone will arrive in the UK on November 8th, just another week away.

Online retailers Clove UK & Phones4U, had already started accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S3 Mini as early as a fortnight ago. Subsequently, Clove UK expressed regret to its customers on the delay in availability of stocks. As per Clove, the delay had occurred due to insufficient quantities of the Pebble Blue colored units. The Galaxy S3 Mini is available in two colors, Marble White and Pebble Blue.

With Samsung now confirming a November 8th arrival, it remains to be seen if both options would be available, or just the Marble White  flavor, as advised by Clove UK earlier. Phones4U listed the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini as available from free on £25 a month contracts on a choice of networks. Clove UK had also listed a £298 (including VAT) price for the SIM-free, unlocked model.

The latest addition to the Samsung Galaxy family retains the looks of the Galaxy S3, but is more compact in size. Specs include:

  • 5MP+ LED Flash camera
  • Cutting-edge 1GHz Dual Core processor
  • 4.0” WVGA Super AMOLED screen
  • 8GB internal memory / Expandable microsSD upto 32 GB
  • 1500mAh battery life
  • Android version 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
