HDC Galaxy S3: mini version for just $79

Here’s something for the small-pocketed China phone hunters, a mini clone of the Galaxy S3, this one is called HDC Mini Galaxy S3 I9300. Its kinda impressive as it has a MTK6575 CPU and with that being said, it is clocked at 2 GHz.  It is also a Dual SIM phone with WiFi and FM radio. Its an Android phone, not just a junk JAVA phone S3 knock-off.

2GHz? That seems crazy and doubtful, am I right? FCT explanation is, the number is a summation of 1GHz clock speed of the MT6575 single-core CPU and its GPU performance. Cannot say more unless I had the chance to test the phone in my hands. Still, let’s check out the rest of its specs.

The HDC Galaxy S3 Mini sports a MT6575 CPU with matching GPU already, really capable for HD gaming and HQ multimedia playback. It runs on Android 2.3 GB out of the box and has multi-language support. It has a 3.5-inch screen and above-average screen resolution display quality.

This mini version of the HDC S3 doesnt have 3G, only Edge connectivity support. It’s main camera is a 3.2 megapixels snapper with digital zoom. It also has bluetooth, wifi and GPS capability.

RAM is 256MB, sufficient enough for a mid-level Android phone and since it runs GB OS only, it is enough.

Other stuff, we do not know and that’s all I can say. There is also another Android phone, which you migh also like to check out, the Bluebo B3000. ICS, with TV and the same price as this one.
