Samsung Galaxy S4 gets official Mini treatment
The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 has proven to be hugely successful for the company with the smartphone quickly selling millions of units and breaking the record the previous model had set with early sales, and now the company has given the device the official Mini treatment.
Samsung has now officially announced the Galaxy S4 Mini and the device will come with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display at a resolution of 960 x 540. The company has fitted the device with a dual core 1.7GHz processor that is coupled with an impressive 1.5GB of RAM.
Storage comes in at 8GB but with only 5GB available to the user although in the usual Samsung fashion this can be expanded by a further 64GB via a microSD card. There is an 8-megapixel rear facing camera while around the front you will find a 1.9-megapixel unit for all those video calls and self portraits.
There will be a number of different versions available that will include dual SIM and 4G LTE support, with this version also having NFC connectivity. Other specs include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, and a 1900 mAh battery packed into a device measuring 124.6mm x 61.3mm x 8.94mm weighing 107grams.
The handset will come running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and available in either Black Mist or White Frost colour options with a release expected sometime in June, but so far Samsung hasn’t revealed any pricing for the new handset.
