You might be thinking that Samsung is investing much time and money on its high-end smartphones like the Galaxy Note 3 and latest Galaxy S5 (which was unveiled a the International Mobile World Congress 2014 a couple of weeks back). But that is not the case as the company is also doing its best on enriching its mid-range smartphone portfolio.
Recently the South Korean giant launched the Galaxy S3 Mini Value Edition in the Netherlands. The smartphones was earlier heard of back in January. Back then, reports said that the model number GT-I8200 belonged to the very device. However, the launch of Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Neo devices should have taken a bit of the company's time as it didn't come up with a new device this time. The Galaxy S3 Mini Value Edition is in fact based on Galaxy S3 Mini smartphone, which was launched more than one and a half years ago.
