Galaxy S III mini with ST-Ericsson NovaThor Chip, Confirmed

Samsung’s Galaxy S III mini, unveiled earlier this week as the smaller flavor of Galaxy S III, will arrive on shelves with ST-Ericsson’s NovaThor chip inside, the company has officially confirmed.

Initially, Samsung said that the device was powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor, but did not mention what chip it was. Today, however, ST-Ericsson announced that the smartphone is indeed powered by its NovaThor ModAp platform (U8500/U8520 family). “Our highly integrated NovaThor ModAp platform, integrating a modem and application processor on a single die, enables compact and efficient devices and we are very pleased that Samsung has again chosen us for its GALAXY S III mini,” the company said.

Galaxy S III mini is not the first smartphone from Samsung to arrive on shelves with a processor from ST-Ericsson. Galaxy S Advance, Galaxy Beam and Galaxy Ace 2 were also made available for purchase with the NovaThor platform inside, sammyhub reports.
