Samsung just released a new version of its Galaxy SIII in Brazil, and it is called the Galaxy S3 Slim. Itâ€™s not a fancy new phone like the recently announced Galaxy S5, but a cheaper alternative that is meant to appeal to those on a budget. It looks just like the SIII, but is a tad slimmer and has worse specs. The Slim, which was spotted by Sam Mobile, has a 4.5-inch screen, a 5 MP camera, and will run the out-of-date Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The device will come with 1 GB of memory and 8 GB of storage. Despite its slimmer shape, the device will be heavier than the SIII, weighing in at 139 grams (compared to the SIIIâ€™s 133 grams).Â Samsungâ€™s release of the Slim looks to be following a similar strategy as Apple, whichÂ released a cheaper 8 GB iPhone 5c today. Still, Samsung is taking this strategy even further, as the SIII was already a two-year-old phone.
