The rumors were true, the Samsung Galaxy S family is about to acquire a recent member. No, not a Galaxy S IV, but a Galaxy S III mini. The news comes straight from JK Shin, Samsung's president, and the phone will be launching as soon as tomorrow.

The Samsung Galaxy S III mini is going to have a 4" classy screen and according to Shin it has been driven by an increased interest in smaller high-discontinue phones in Europe (current high-discontinue droid have 4.5+ inch screens).

The type and resolution of the classy screen was kept a secret, but it will probably be a 4" WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) like the first gen Galaxy S or a 4" WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) TFT like the Galaxy S Duos.

The Galaxy S III mini will have a model number I8190 according to the rumor mill and German site AllAboutSamsung has found photos on Picasa from a phone with just that model number. The photos are shot at 3MP, but the site recommends the capturing camera will actually have a 5MP sensor. Shin's announcement to the Korean press doesn’t mention any capturing camera specs, so we'll have to wait another day to find out.

The resolution of the video captured with the Samsung Galaxy S III mini capturing camera is not known and will probably depdiscontinue on the chipset in use, which is another unknown. An Exynos 4412 Quad like its gigantic bro and the Note II or a dual-core (this is a mini after all, the battery might not have enough juice for a quad core).

At any rate we won't have to wait long to find out, the official announcement of the S III mini is slated for tomorrow, October 11, in Germany.
