Hinting at the device’s name, Shin said: “There’s a lot of demand for a 4-inch screen device in Europe. Some may call it an entry-level device, but we call it ‘mini’.”

Shin did not reveal any additional details of the device — such as pricing and availability — ahead of tomorrow’s launch, however.According to The Verge, the mini Galaxy S3 will not be an entry-level device, suggesting it will pack the same features as its larger, 4.8-inch sibling.

Samsung sold 20 million Galaxy S3 smartphone in the first 100 days after its launch, and had notched up double the sales of its Galaxy S2 predecessor after five months.
