According to JK Shin, Samsung’s mobile division head, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III Mini will not be an entry-level device. In a press conference with Korean media earlier today, he also said that because “there is a demand of a 4-inch Galaxy S III in the European market”, the company would be making one.

This puts the new device in direct competition with Apple’s iPhone 5, which is puzzling, since the company has been touting its S III’s larger screen in recent advertisements in the US. Documents of a meeting from its recent court case with Apple (where Samsung lost) also pointed out the Korean chaebol’s focus on having a larger display.

An unnamed Samsung executive reportedly said this in the meeting: “Our biggest asset is our screen. It is very important that we make screen size bigger, and in the future mobile phones will absorb even the function of e-books.”

Lastly, Shin further announced that the Samsung Ativ S Windows Phone 8 handset would be released either in October or November. Given the release date of Windows 8, we’re guessing it will be the latter. He also added that Samsung would be proceeding with its plans to sue Apple over its LTE patents.
