Samsung has not revealed any more details about the phone but has added that more details will be released “in due course.” We hope to find out more about the same in London event on 20 June, although previous rumors said it will go on the shelves in July. We’re out of luck when it comes to Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini price but comparing it with a Galaxy S3 Mini price, we expect it to cost £320 or USD 485 which is not very economical considering its specifications.
It has received many rumors in the past regarding its launch which puts the June 20 London event for the same, but we now expect more details to be revealed at the event. Stay tuned for more details on the same and follow us on Twitter, Google+ and Facebook for more news updates related to gadgets, tablets and computers.
