Samsung is preparing to release a new variant of the Galaxy S III Mini with NFC capabilities. The model number of the new variant is GT-I8190N and it will be launched in 2 colours Blue and White. United Kingdom will be the first country to carry the Galaxy S III Mini with NFC and the device will be available by the end of January.

The new NFC variant will have Samsung’s S-Beam feature enabled. S-Beam is a new way to transfer files to other devices. Normally, other OEMs use Google’s Android Beam method to transfer files to other devices which uses NFC + Bluetooth but Samsung has developed their own method called the S-Beam. Samsung’s S-Beam uses NFC + WiFi Direct, which gives insanely fast transfer speeds, to tansfer files between devices. Samsung says a 10MB music file can be shuttled over in around two seconds.

Other than the addition of NFC, there are no modifications done to the rest of the hardware. The GALAXY S III Mini with NFC features a 4″ SuperAMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 800, Dual-Core 1GHz CPU with 1GB of RAM. The device also packs a 5 Megapixel camera which is capable of shooting 720P HD videos and a front-facing camera for video chats. The device will come with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
