Despite a recent U.S. court smackdown, Samsung does not seem to be slowing down development of its Android mobile phones. Mobile analytics firm Localytics recently said that Galaxy S III sales are still strong, growing 9% weekly.

A smaller Galaxy S III would seek to build on that popularity. The rumored specifications include:

  • 4-inch Super AMOLED screen (the Samsung Galaxy S III's is 4.8, not a huge difference)
  • 5 MP camera
  • A price significantly lower than the iPhone 5's.
