Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini real, coming soon after Galaxy S4, says Bloomberg
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini exists and it will arrive soon after the official launch of the flagship S4, according to an in-depth piece on Samsung’s recent success by Bloomberg.

“The Galaxy S 4 doesn’t come out until late April. It’s fast, has a big, bright screen, and will probably be another huge hit for Samsung, as will the S 4 mini that will go on sale soon after,” Bloomberg said.

Bloomberg has an impeccable track record and while the Galaxy S4 Mini has not yet been confirmed by Samsung, it seems that it is very close to getting official.

We have been hearing about a Galaxy S4 Mini as part of Samsung’s Project J allegedly comprising of the S4, S4 Mini (under the Serrano codename) and an Altius smartwatch.

As to the S4 Mini, rumors say it has a 4.3” qHD AMOLED display, an 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, quad-core processor, micro SD support, touch-wiz nature UX and Android 4.2.2. Samsung is expected to bring the Galaxy S4 Mini in 3 versions: an 8GB, 16GB and 32GB ones. The S4 Mini release date is allegedly set for June 2013.

"Life Companion" is the S4, "Life is...0 7 : 1 7" is the S4 Mini.

I mean the S4's slogan is "Life Companion" right? So, I was joking that the S4 Mini's slogan is "Life is...0 7 : 1 7". It was a joke. :P

Explaining a joke loses the essence of a joke.

Bad choice. Galaxy S3 is Galaxy S4 Mini, so why?

The difference is GS3 is better and bigger. I would buy the GS3, no the GS4 Mini.

The cool thing about the S4 mini will be the SoC, which is rumored to be the Exynos 5210. That SoC basically is a dual core variant of the SoC that comes with the mini's bigger brother (Exynos 5410 variant). At least that's what I was able to make of the rumors. Alas there's not too much info about the GPU that will come with the Exynos 5210... But performance wise it will be good, which we can't say about the s3 mini.

I honestly feel like this is a good idea; I've talked to a ton of iPhone users who are intimidated by the size of my razr maxx. As a 21 year old sorority girl, most of the people I know don't want a phone they can't carry easily, or hold in their hands comfortably. I'm glad they're not just getting huge like the Note.

What is a Galaxy S4 Mini real?

Because It has the features of the S4 but smaller....... you get that now?, or do I need to use smaller words? (sorry I just couldn't resist saying that last art)

Wow, you're a real special kid! I asked WHAT, not WHY. My question did not require an answer beginning with "because."

Allow me to breakdown my question for you (this is where you get out your crayons)........

WHAT...is...a...'Galaxy S4 Mini real?"

The title of this article starts off with "Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini real."

Do you usually end up being the idiot when you try insulting others?

First off I have astigmatism, so when I first replied I didn't notice you said "What" rather than "Why" because of my eyesight, Secondly it's also entirely possible that my brain automatically corrected the statement to what seemed to make the most since considering the situation as well, And thirdly sir, I do recall apologising for my rude comment there, I just found it amusing, but you're are right about one thing, I really should refrain from starting sentences with "because" I should've known better, so I do thank you for that, so once again you have my humblest apology for my behaviour, I surely hope I didn't offend you in any way once so ever. Oh and one last thing you're sentence should of gone "What is a "Samsung Galaxy Mini Real" ", you were quoting something so you should of used quotations marks

this is the best mid range ever in the Samsung mid range line up.having 1.6Ghz quad core. It definitely beats the Galaxy Grand as the best mid range smartphone today. Samsung still making good phones these days and I salute them for that.

Why make a mini with same specs as gs3? I want a sg with top specs at 4.3

Actually I want a android that doesnt get updates that eat my ram and quite frankly isnt formatted to be running a new os that the specs werent meant for. Im over getting updates that make my phone lag. Im thinking about a window phone, can someone explain why they dont have a lot of ram?
