In agreement to the various rumors going around regarding Samsung planning to launch a small brother to its new flagship Smartphone Galaxy S4, SamMobile has released another report stating that Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini has been spotted on Samsung’s UAPROF website.
The report from SamMobile claims that there will be two Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini variants, one with a single SIM card codenamed GT-I9190 and the other with a dual SIM card codenamed GT-I9192. The single SIM variant will be powered by a Quad core processor and the dual SIM variant will be powered by a Dual core processor. The report further adds that Samsung may also release another Galaxy S4 Mini variant with LTE support which is codenamed GT-I9195.
Other specifications of Galaxy S4 Mini for both variants include:
- 4.3 inch qHD screen
- 8 MP rear camera
- WiFi, AGPS, 3G, Bluetooth
- Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz Nature UX on top
- 2 color options: Black Mist and White Frost
In another report from SamMobile, Samsung has delayed the release of its Galaxy S4 Mini to Week 29 while previously it was Week 21 after the release of Galaxy S4. This two month delay has been introduced in order to better concentrate on the production and marketing of the more lucrative flagship device Galaxy S4. Those who were thinking about picking up this little brother at its launch will have to wait until July to get their hands on it.
In the past, Samsung has released a mini version Galaxy S3 Mini of its previous flagship Galaxy S3, but it hasn’t proved to be an instant seller. Judging from the initial specifications which are available right now, Galaxy S4 Mini looks to be a serious downgrade from the flagship Galaxy S4 as it offers a smaller screen and a less powerful processor for a dual SIM version. The details of battery, GPU etc. will completely determine together with pricing whether this will meet with a similar fate as a Galaxy S3 Mini or will become an instant hit in the mid-range segment, if it is priced appropriately for it.
