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?
weak! check out cherry mobile cosmos family. cheapest quad core 18mp cam and 8mp front cam!! email me i’m selling to anywhere in the world.
I have to say that im also looking forward to this phone. The size is spot on and a dual core processor isn’t that bad either, the qhd display isn’t really a bother for me because its samsung, and samsung’s usually have great displays. Take the galaxy grand for example, a wvga resolution on a 5 inch smartphone would really be stretching it but samsung was able to pull it off. I’ve seen the phone and was quite surprised on how good the screen was. Well anyway coming back to the s4 mini. Though unlikely I really hope they put a snapdragon dualcore krait processor on it. Because I think the new a15 dualcores would beat the crap out of a9 quadcore’s today. But again that as I said it would be highly unlikely because most of samsung’s mid range phones had a broadcom or a nova thor processor. Well anyway moving on to the the battery, ram and camera. I don’t have any problem with a 1 of gig ram but a 2 gig one would be a welcome treat. I really wish samsung wouldn’t put another weak a$$ battery and camera on it like the one they put on the s3 mini. Although to be honest the s3 minis battery and camera was good. I just think it should have been better. Because s3 minis are sold around 13k on online stores and for that money you could buy an s2 which in every way, as long as harware is concerned, far better than the s3 mini. Well again going back to the s4 mini, it’s a pretty good looking phone and if the camera and battery are good, and ofcourse if the price is right it would really be a nice phone have. :)
I’m hoping that this will be better than the Galaxy S3 Mini in terms of battery too. I’m pretty sure the performance will be great and I think it’ll have a quad-core CPU instead of the dual-core stated above. If they will not put a quad-core on this one, then there’s no other reason to get this over the Galaxy S3 apart from the smaller screen size.
yep you have a point, well if they do fit it with a quadcore i hope they put a real one, not a 2+2 like the 4+4 octa chip they have for s4
