The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini has been available in Asia and Europe since last year, but AT&T released it only yesterday. Fortunately, this huge delay comes with a tempting deal for customers looking for a cheap smartphone on a contract, as AT&T sells it for only $0.99 when attached to a two-year subscription plan.

Advertised by AT&T as a handset "for customers seeking a premium smartphone experience at an outstanding value", the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini packs the following specs:

  • Processor: dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm MSM8930
  • Display: 4-inch LCD with 800X480 pixels and 217 ppi
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB ROM and microSD slot, up to 64 GB
  • Cameras: 5 MP back with LED flash, VGA front  
  • Connectivity: 3G, 4G LTE and HSPA+, WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC  
  • Operating system: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.25 lbs; 4.77X2.46X0.34 inches
  • Battery/Autonomy: Li-Ion 2,000 mAh; up to 11 hours talk time and over 15 days standby

In addition to the $0.99 offer, AT&T also sells this handset for $250.99 with a one-year contract or $284.99 contract-free. In all these cases, an additional $36 activation fee applies.

Unfortunately, AT&T only seems to have the Pebble Blue Galaxy S3 Mini in stock at this time. Later this year, the carrier may introduce the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini in its portfolio as well.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
