Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Release Date in Singapore [Rumor]
On October 4, Samsung sent out a press invitation for an October 11 event. In its invitation, Samsung teased the tech community with what sounded like an obvious revelation of what they planned to unveil. Translated from German, the wording found on the invitation said “big can be small and small can be big”. This kicked off the rumor mill about smaller version of Samsung’s highly successful Galaxy SIII line, dubbed as Galaxy SIII mini.
[LATEST UPDATE] Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Singapore Release Date When?
Many believed that the October 11 date was purportedly chosen by Samsung in their effort to steal the thunder from Apple. After all, Apple was back in the limelight shortly after their iPhone 5 announcement. Rumors of Apple’s plan for iPad mini gathered steam when WSJ released a report quoting reliable sources as saying that production of iPad mini is well underway. Other than the date, Samsung had carefully choreographed its event to spoil Apple’s party.
Two days before the October 11 press event, Samsung’s mobile chief was reported by inews24 as confirming about S3 mini rumors. JK Shin, Samsung’s mobile head quoted strong demand for a smaller device in many markets, particularly Europe. In addition, Samsung deliberately choose ‘mini’ post-fix instead of calling it a new Galaxy S4 altogether. This is motivated by no other reason than to blanket up Apple’s planned ‘mini’ event.
Today, less than a month after its unveiling, Samsung’s Galaxy S3 mini is on its way to U.K.’s consumer hands. The release date for U.K. is confirmed to be November 8. Again, this stirred up rumors and speculations of its impending worldwide release. Rolling back to Samsung’s timeline in releasing the highly popular Galaxy Note II, it would take about 2-3 weeks after U.K. release before it is available worldwide.
Samsung fans in Singapore has been waiting frantically for official words about the Galaxy S3 mini release date in Singapore. Based on some sources that I deemed to be reliable, fans in Singapore can expect the Galaxy SIII mini to make its debut in Singapore no later than late November or early December. If rumors prove to be true, we could be seeing November 29 as SIII mini release date in Singapore.
