Samsung has sent out an invitation in Germany for a media event next Thursday, sparking speculation that it may announce a Galaxy S III mini.

The invitation, which you can see at Unwired View, includes lines that translate from German to English as "large may be small," followed by "and so small can be big" when using Google Translate.

That, along with an S in the background in the style of the Galaxy S line of phones, is causing people around the Web to wonder if Samsung is getting ready to announce a smaller version of its flagship phone.

The Galaxy S III has been a successful rival to Apple's iPhone 5, but its 4.8-inch screen is seen as too big by some consumers.

A 4-inch Galaxy S III would give consumers a smaller Samsung alternative to the iPhone 5.
