Samsung Instinct Mini Leak
Samsung's rumored Instinct Mini has been spotted today in photos from a member of SprintUsers' forums. The device, destined for Sprint, appears to support recent leaks and shows a slightly smaller design with a much more rounded body. While few technical details have escaped with the leak, the images show the same customized interface as for the older, larger original and show a camera.
Other aspects of the phone are speculative. A "navigation" icon suggests that GPS will remain in the new Instinct, though the rumor had Samsung trimming costs by using ordinary EVDO for 3G instead of the Revision A that has characterized the existing phone. Past reports would have the Mini shipping to Sprint in mid-April, when it might alternately use the Instinct S30 name. [via BGR]
