It might be a last generation device– Samsung unveiled the S4 mini at its event back in June— but that’s why AT&T will sell it for 99 cents on contract when it becomes available on September 27.
As a reminder, the S III mini includes a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, and packs in a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 5 megapixel main camera.

Samsung announces ‘Galaxy Golden’, a $700 dual-screen flip-phone for Korea
Fit for a Saudi prince, Samsung today made things official for another new flip-phone for the Korean market. While it’s unlikely to steal any of Apple’s thunder ahead of the launch of the much rumored gold iPhone expected early next month, Samsung is branding the dual-screen device as the “Samsung Galaxy Golden.” For what it’s worth, the exterior of the device appears to be closer to bronze in color than gold. It appears Samsung plans on having some success with the clamshell design in markets outside the US, as the announcement follows the launch of another new Android based flip-phone earlier this month and rumors of the ‘Galaxy Folder’ arriving soon. Specs include two 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screens, a 1.7GHz dual-core CPU, 8 megapixel camera, FM radio, and Android 4.2. The Galaxy Golden will sell for around 790,000 won, which equals approximately $700 US.

There have been several leaks of Google and Samsung’s joint venture into the 10-inch tablet space —during the anticipation for the unveiling of Google’s slew of new Android products (whenever that may be)—dubbed the “Nexus 10“. Adding to thd leaks yesterday, BriefMobile posted a brief video showing off the Nexus 10’s over-all structure. Past the overview, nothing is really shocking here. It looks like we’re seeing the same dual-core Samsung Exynos 5250 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 10.1-inch Super AMOLED display at 2,560-by-1,600-pixel resolution, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED, front-facing camera, NFC, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0 capability, as well as Android 4.2 Jelly Bean preloaded, which we’ve seen over the last week.
