Remember the earlier rumoured Galaxy Nexus II? Word has it that the device that everybody would hope for may not be a Nexus device after all. It is now rumoured to be a new model called the Samsung Galaxy Premier that’s shown on the left side of the image above. Out of the box, it runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with the usual TouchWiz UI.
The device features a 4.65″ HD Super AMOLED display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front facing camera. The Galaxy Premier comes with 8GB/16GB storage options with expandable micro SD. Initially, it was said to be a facelift of the current Galaxy Nexus with bumped up hardware. However with the inclusion of a microSD slot did came as a surprised considering most Nexus devices begining with the Nexus S had omitted all forms of memory card expansion.
If you’re eyeing for the next Google Nexus device, the Nexus 4 is probably the only obvious option right now which is expected to launch on 29th October.

The smaller Samsung Galaxy S III Mini is now officially announced with a smaller 4.0″ display while maintaining the familiar Galaxy S III design. Like what was revealed earlier on, the Galaxy S III Mini packs a rather mid-spec hardware with a dual-core 1GHz ST-Ericsson NovaThor processor, 1GB of RAM and a 5MP camera that does 720p HD videos. Over at the front, there’s a VGA camera for conference calls. The 4.0″ display is of Super AMOLED variety and pushes 800×480 resolution.
There’s a choice of 8GB and 16GB on board storage with expansion using microSD. Out of the box, it runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and it is juiced up with a 1,500mAh battery. In terms of dimensions, the S III Mini is obviously shorter at 121.55mm, has a thickness of 9.85mm and weighs 115.5 grams. As comparison, the bigger S III is 136.6mm tall, 8.6mm thick and weighs 133 grams.
Initially when the Galaxy S III was announced, we would have expected a similar Galaxy S III spec hardware in a smaller size for those looking for single handed practicality. However it turns out to be more of a Galaxy S Advance replacement with similar screen size, hardware but with increased RAM.
