S3 successor set for March unveil.
Samsung is purportedly planning to debut the Galaxy S4 Mini and a Galaxy Watch alongside the Galaxy S4 smartphone itself.
According to SamMobile, the company may take the same approach as it did with the Galaxy S3 Mini. It's performed well in Europe, while a U.S. release has never been Samsung's plan. Either way, Apple dropped its Galaxy S3 Mini patent claim in the U.S. providing Samsung doesn't actively sell the product within the country.
The Galaxy S IV Mini is likely to feature less powerful technical specifications, as well as the omission of key features such as wireless charging. Consequently, though, it'll naturally retail for a lower price.
The South Korean technology giant is also said to be working on a device that will be compatible with an arm band, bike mount and pouch. The product is expected to be a Galaxy Watch that competes with Apple’s rumored iWatch, while Google is 'actively monitoring' the market for the product.
Samsung's Galaxy S4 is reportedly set for a March 15 debut at Samsung's Mobile Unpacked event, with the Galaxy S3 being announced back in 2012 during a previous Unpacked event.
