Samsung has no plans to launch Galaxy S III Mini in India. Instead, Galaxy S II Plus will be reaching India this February.
Galaxy S III Mini is a cut down version of Galaxy S III, but not with that much a lesser price tag as it was expected to be. The Galaxy S III Mini was launched in last December. One of the main difference between them was the availability of NFC technology in Galaxy S III original. Now Samsung is going to update that too. They have come forward with a new version of Galaxy S III Mini with NFC capability. This adds to the agony that the device is not launching in India. This newly updated device is to replace the existing Galaxy S III Mini by the end of this month. Though the price of the newly updated version is not yet revealed, we can expect it more or less the same as its older version.
On the positive side, the GM announced a good news for the fans of Galaxy S II plus, that it will be launching in India during the later half of February.
The Galaxy S II was a huge success for Samsung, which inspired them to produce its upgraded version. The Galaxy S II Plus has Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Nature UX. It is powered by a dual-core Cortex-A9 processor. The device has a Broadcomm GPU and 1GB of RAM. All other features are more or less the same as Galaxy S II.
The device is expected to cost around 25000/- Indian rupees. Though the dates of releasing are not yet confirmed, it is assured that Samsung Galaxy S II Plus will have its red carpet entry to the Indian market as well.
