So far, only the 8GB variant of Samsung’s smaller Galaxy refresh is listed by the retailer, who also state that those wanting to get their hands on the pebble blue version with have to wait till sometime around November 23.

Expansys is listing the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini for £314.99, but you can find it for £300 SIM-free if you look about. The handset will also be free on contracts starting at £25 per month.

Those expecting a premium handset similar to the Galaxy S3 Mini’s namesake, the show-stopping Galaxy S3, will likely be disappointed. The S3 Mini has just a 1GHz dual-core processor rather than a quad-core one, and a smaller 4-inch Super AMOLED display. It does however come running the latest version of Android, Jelly Bean, which the standard Galaxy S3 does not yet.
