Samsung has unveiled a smaller version of its Galaxy S3 smartphone, reducing the screen size by 0.8 of an inch to 4 inches, bringing it in line with Apple's iPhone 5.
The handset runs on Jelly Bean, the latest version of Google's Android operating system.
Samsung has not yet shared details of when the device will go on sale.
The announcement comes at a time Apple are expected to launch a 7-inch iPad, although that has yet to be confirmed.
The Galaxy S3 Mini, details of which had been widely leaked prior to Thursday's announcement, comes just six months after the launch of the well-received larger model.
The Mini has a five megapixel camera on its rear, with a lower quality VGA camera on its front.
