The Samsung Galaxy S3 mini price in India has been revealed to be Rs. 26,999. The device arrives with Android 4.1 on-board and it features various capabilities and enhancements introduced with the original S3 smartphone.

Similar to the Google Nexus 4, the Galaxy S3 mini is available in the country unofficially. Samsung is yet to make a formal announcement of the phone’s arrival, that’s if it does have plans to launch the device. For a quick refresher, we’re going to run through the features and components employed within the 9.9mm form factor. A 1GHz dual core CPU is accompanied by 1GB of RAM and a 4-inch Super AMOLED display proffering a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Users will have 8GB of built-in storage and a microSD card slot for hoarding content. There’s also a camera employed onto the rear which is of 5 megapixels, and the front.

On a single charge of the 1,500mAh battery, the handset is capable of delivering 470 minutes of talktime or 360 hours of standby on a 3G network. It comes in color options of blue and white. However, only the latter shade is up for grabs in India. A little over a week after hitting the rumor mill, the device was officially unveiled. And it has reached availability status in the UK through various carriers including Three, Vodafone, Orange and OS, while an unlocked version is up for grabs through Clove.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 mini can be purchased for Rs. 26,999 in India, as stated earlier. The device is being offered through the country-specific eBay website and it comes with a 1-year seller warranty which is applicable to software related issues only and not for hardware problems. What’s worth a mention is that the seller will be checking the phone before dispatch to ‘avoid returns.’ Something tells us that the device isn’t likely to arrive in a sealed package. Octroi and local levies, if any, will be charged at the time of delivery.
