Samsung Galaxy S III Mini variant to arrive with T-Mobile as the Galaxy Exhibit

We have previously seen Samsung announce the Galaxy S III Mini, which came back in October of 2012. We also later learned that Apple was dropping that particular handset from the lawsuit with Samsung provided they did not offer it for sale in the US market. Of course, that does not necessarily mean that Samsung cannot offer a variant of that handset with another name.

Enter the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, which has recently been leaked by way of the @evleaks Twitter account. This latest leak did not include a full set of specs for the handset, however it is showing the Galaxy Exhibit as being the Samsung SGH-T599. It also appears to be similar to the Galaxy Axiom, which was previously released with another US carrier -- US Cellular. A price has yet to be revealed, however the handset is said to be coming before the end of this quarter.

That being said, we know the Galaxy Exhibit will include an HVGA display, dual-core processor and 5 megapixel rear-facing camera. Also, just to clear things up assuming T-Mobile does indeed launch this as the Exhibit -- this is not to be confused with the current Exhibit branded device with T-Mobile. The carrier currently has the Galaxy Exhibit 4G, which was previously known as the Exhibit II.

Otherwise, as you can see from the above image, the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit will arrive with T-Mobile in grey. Specifically, Pebble Grey. All said and done, we expect the handset will arrive with a relatively low price point. And while we do not expect it to arrive quite this low, the currently available Galaxy Exhibit 4G is currently selling for $29.99 on a two-year agreement. Of course, we should point out that even a sub-$30 price point seems a bit high for a device that is still running Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

    Other sites are reporting WVGA and ICS, which would make more sense as an update to the current Galaxy Exhibit in the face of the Optimus L9. What leads you to say HVGA and GB?
