Samsung has released a new variant of flagship Galaxy S3 in the form of Galaxy S3 Slim in Brazil today. The phone is now listed at Samsung Brazil website and features almost similar specifications to Galaxy Core LTE which was announced last month, but this is powered by a quad-core processor instead of dual-core processor in the Galaxy Core LTE and lacks LTE and NFC support.
According to the Samsung Brazil’s product listing, the new Samsung Galaxy S3 Slim packs 4.5-inch qHD display with 960 x 540 pixels resolutions, and operates on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It includes 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, 5MP AF camera with LED flash support, VGA front camera and 2,100 mAh battery.
For connectivity, it comes with the support of 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi-Direct, DLNA, Bluetooth v4.0, and A-GPS + GLONASS.
There is still no word on the pricing. It comes in Black and White colours. The company launched the phone in China recently with the name Galaxy Win Pro. It is currently retailing in Chinese markets for 1698 Chinese Yuan (Rs. 16,845 approx). It is not clear if Samsung plans to launch the smartphone globally.
