Samsung Galaxy S5 01

The Korean firm Samsung has an important collection of Galaxy devices on the market. In fact, just a few days ago it presented its new flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S5 , although for now models such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy S3 are still marketed normally . The fact is that in the last hours, we have learned that Samsung has just released a new updated version of its Samsung Galaxy S3 mini , a team that was already presented seventeen months ago . The brand new edition is called Samsung Galaxy S3 mini Value Edition and for now, it is on sale in theNetherlands . Despite this, it is possible that the equipment will also reach other markets that are waiting like water in May for the arrival of entry-level devices . Its price in the free market will be approximately 180 euros , although this amount may vary depending on whether the equipment is sold through the catalog of the operators in each country.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 mini Value Edition is a device that repeats part of the technical sheet of its predecessor, although the truth is that it includes a couple of new features. On one side is the processor. The brand new Samsung equipment is presented with a dual-core Cortex-A9 chip , ready to operate at a 1.2 GHz clock frequency . Another important change is in the version of the operating system. Logically, like the vast majority of Samsung terminals , this equipment works through Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) , a more recent version, but not the latest. We will see if finally Samsung decides to expand the editions byAndroid 4.3 (Jelly Bean) or Android 4.4 (KitKat) , which are the most current. And apart from these two characteristics, the rest of the features mentioned in the technical sheet remain intact.

In this way, we can indicate that the  Samsung Galaxy S3 mini Value Pack has dimensions of 121.55 x 63 x 9.85 millimeters and weighs around 111 grams, with the battery included. It features a Super AMOLED of 4 inches with a resolution WVGA 480 x 800 pixels and a density of 233 dots per inch. The camera has a 5 megapixel sensor that will allow us to capture images at a resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels. It integrates extra functions such as geotagging, autofocus, face detector or LED Flash . In addition, it allows recording HD video 720p @ 30fps. How could it be otherwise, the equipment maintains compatibility with 3G networks (HSDPA 14.4 Mbps / HSUPA 5.76 Mbps), WiFi 802.11 a / b / g / n, WiFi Direct, WiFi Hotspot, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP and EDR, NFC and aGPS with GLONASS . To the processor that we have indicated you have to add 1 GB of RAM and an internal capacity of 8 GB . The battery has a capacity identical to that of the original model: 1,500 milliamps that will guarantee an autonomy of 850 minutes in conversation and about 450 hours in standby.
