Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S3 Mini last week. The company also took the covers of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha, which is claimed to be more powerful than its brothers.
LatinosPost reported that Docomo have introduced to their consumers the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and on the side a Galaxy S3 Alpha.
The Alpha version sports a quad core Exynos processor clocked at 1.6GHz with 2GB of RAM. The device also features the same multi-tasking windows feature that the Galaxy Note 2 has, along with the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha is said to come with a HD Super AMOLED display of 4.8 inches and it has a resolution of 1280 x 720. The camera in the back is the 8 megapixels and there will be a 1.9 megapixel camera on the front.
Lastly, the Alpha version of the Galaxy S3 comes with Android v4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The original Galaxy S3 comes with Ice Cream Sandwich but the Jelly Bean update is currently on the roll.
There is no stopping Samsung from making more and more smartphones to cater to other sectors of the population. Since Samsung Galaxy S3 is not everyone's cup of tea, then the tech giant made a new device for people who are looking for a cheaper yet powerful smartphone.
While many consumers have sought out smartphones with bigger screens, analysts say there's still a big market for smaller devices. Many Apple users, for example, have shunned the larger screen sizes found in Android devices. Thus far, many of the phones with smaller screens have been geared more to the entry level market, not providing the powerful specs found in high-end devices. That means few have given Apple a run for its money.
Current Analysis analyst Avi Greengart said, "Apple has proven quite conclusively that tens of millions of people are happy to have a device they can wrap their hands around."
"It doesn't mean they don't want powerful processors or high megapixel cameras. The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini isn't as powerful as its flagship phone, but the company says the device "can be an optimal choice for consumers who are looking for more practical smartphones," the analyst added.
