Galaxy S4 Mini Spotted, Smaller S4 Coming Soon?

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, the reported miniature version of Samsung’s flagship smartphone Galaxy S4, has been spotted in the wild. During the early rumors of the Galaxy S4, the project it belonged to was dubbed as Project J and it’s said that it’s not just a single device. Now, we’re about to see another one.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini isn’t expected to pack the same specs as the Galaxy S4. It won’t have the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa-core processor nor the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, but still, if compared on the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, this is really a good complement on this year’s flagship.
According to Sammobile, the Galaxy S4 Mini is set to have a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display with a pixel density of 256ppi which is a good size to start with. But since the S4 has a full HD display, I think it’s better if this smaller version will carry at least an HD display. It’s the same case on the S3 Mini actually, but having this type of display isn’t really bad as long as it’s priced competitively. It will be powered by a a 1.6GHz Dual-Core processor and there’s no mention of RAM yet but we expect it to be 1GB – and we’re hoping that it’s 2GB. The device will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 on top. It will also come with a dual-SIM variant in some regions.
This smartphone is rumored to be released some time this summer (June/July). The S4 Mini looks a lot like the S4 and we believe that this device can be a huge hit for people who don’t want to bring along huge android phones. What do you think?
