Galaxy S III Mini: a fine mese in UK la versione NFC

Nicola Ligas

Una delle tante differenze tra il Galaxy S III Mini e il suo quasi omonimo fratello maggiore, è l’assenza di NFC nello smartphone più piccolo. Questa intollerabile carenza sarà però colmata entro fine mese, almeno sul mercato britannico, con l’introduzione di un apposito modello, con il quale sarà quindi possibile godere delle gioie di S Beam.  Il comunicato di Samsung non parla degli altri mercati europei, ma l’S III Mini NFC è già stato avvistato ad esempio in Finlandia, quindi non vediamo ragioni per un’esclusiva inglese.

Samsung non rivela comunque il prezzo ufficiale di questa variante, ma secondo il rivenditore finlandese Gigantti, la versione NFC costerà 349€, ovvero circa 50 euro in più del modello base. Inutile dire che starà al singolo cliente decidere se S Beam e soci valgano la maggiore spesa. Sempre che sappia cosa sta comprando.

New NFC variant set to hit shops at end of January

21st January 2013, London, UK – Samsung Mobile UK today announced that an NFC-enabled version of the Galaxy S III Mini smartphone will be available to buy in the UK from the end of January.
Owners of the new Galaxy S III Mini will be able to share content, such as photos, videos and music, much faster and more easily. Its S Beam feature allows a 10MB music file to be shared in just two seconds by simply tapping on another S Beam-enabled device, such as the Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note II, even without a Wi-Fi or cellular signal. By combining NFC and Wi-Fi Direct, S Beam is capable of sending larger files between phones, such as images, videos and music tracks.
The Galaxy S III Mini is powered by Android™ 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and packed with many of the same features available on the Galaxy S III, including S Voice which people can use to tell the phone to wake up, answer an incoming call, or even take a photo, and Direct Call which allows customers to automatically call someone they’ve just received a text by simply lifting the phone to their ear.
Simon Stanford, Vice President, Telecommunications & Networks, Samsung UK and Ireland said: ”
“NFC technology and the digital wallet started to gain significant traction in 2012, particularly in the run up to the Olympics. It’s an exciting time in the mobile market watching the next phase of its evolution take shape, so we’re happy to announce that we are bringing these new experiences to our customers through our growing number of NFC-enabled devices.”

The Galaxy S III Mini will be available to buy in the UK across all major networks, key high street and out of town electrical retailers and online retailers from the end of January.
