It’s not yet Black Friday, but the madness had begun as AT&T offers the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini almost for free. The smartphone is listed on Amazon for $0.01 with plan options with the carrier.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini features a four-inch Super AMOLED display, 5MP main camera, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It was launched in October 2012 and basically started the trend of phone manufacturer rolling out a smaller version of their premium smartphones. So, the Galaxy S3 Mini is the toned down version of the successful Galaxy S3.
The Galaxy S3 Mini comes in 8GB or 16GB variants. Samsung features the 8GB version for the AT&T deal and those looking for more space can make use of a microSD to expand its storage up to 64GB. Most reviews of the 4.8 x 2.5 x 0.39-inch smartphone praised the device for its camera and LTE compatibility. The handset is powered by a 1500mAh battery and features the TouchWiz Nature UX of Samsung.
The device wasn’t built to be a high-end device but those looking for a primary smartphone can get a lot from the small gadget. It was rolled out to cater to consumers looking for an affordable alternative to the flagship smartphones.
Consumers might wonder why AT&T is featuring the GS3 Mini this late in the game, but with a price close to giving the phone away and just a two-year contract, it can be a good deal for a lot of people. It is safe to note that the South Korean manufacturer has already rolled out the Galaxy S4 Mini while HTC already launched the HTC One Mini.
The promo isn’t posted on the AT&T website but is featured by Samsung on Amazon. The device is in stock and waiting for consumers who want an affordable primary smartphone.
