Although the new Galaxy S4 Mini has been available for some time, Samsung just doesn’t want to give up on the older Galaxy S III Mini (initially released in November last year). Not long after being introduced in the US via AT&T (which is offering it for almost free on contract), the S III Mini is now getting an exclusive Crystal Edition in Germany.
Targeted at “fashion-conscious women”, the Galaxy S III Mini Crystal Edition comes with a back cover that features 166 “sparkling” Swarovski crystals. It costs €299 (about $402) and seems to be available in Germany starting today.
Specs-wise, the S III Mini Crystal Edition isn’t different from the regular version of the handset. It has the same 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera, and a 1,500 mAh battery.
Samsung did not say if it will launch the Galaxy S III Mini Crystal Edition in other markets.
