Samsung's own website unveils the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini by accident
Yeah, we don't mind going over the specs one more time to satisfy your curiosity. That's just the way we are. The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini will be equipped with a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display with a 540 x 960 resolution. That combination works out to a pixel density of 256ppi which is certainly nowhere near the 440-ish figure of its big brother, but we've seen much worse. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.6GHz Samsung Exynos 5210 processor. Depending on whether the model will have 4G LTE connectivity, there will be 1 or 2GB of RAM on board, with speculation that there will be 32GB of native storage inside the phone. An 8MP camera is expected on back and Android 4.2.2 should be installed out of the box.
Samsung has yet to take down the phone from the website, and considering that it is expected to be introduced before the end of this month, they might as well just keep it up.

Too bitter to accept the truth?
The Galaxy S4 Mini is not bad at all, 32GB of native storage, Samsung has learned it's lesson! And these specs are not bad at all! Why you called it a garbage?
Don't know why you Samsung haters are so bitter to accept the truth!

Mr. Fandroid, are you new here? I don't hate Apple. -_-
I love every manufacturers. Enough said.
80. TheBitterTruth (unregistered)
Your display photo is enough to show that how much you love every other manufacturer.

The display is garbage. I would rather a used s3 if I could not afford the s4. How many galaxies does Samsung have to make?

Should've been at least 720p and knowing Samsung, this ain't going to be priced fairly.

Pentile AMOLED display, this is a joke!
9. MCrapp (Posts: 312; Member since: 07 Apr 2013)
Good processor, 2gb ram,non hd screen=excellent performance
14. polrt (banned) (Posts: 73; Member since: 04 Dec 2012)
You also can put into a cucumber good processor and 2gb ram but it will not make "excellent performance".
17. ebubekir26 (Posts: 305; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)
I think this is going to have 1gb of RAM
19. TheBitterTruth (unregistered)
Full HD on Pentile Amoled. Joke of the century.

Another hideous piece of plastic..wow..
Hope they keep that fake metal look alike band around..it makes the phone look unique as in Chinese unique :)
27. akki20892 (Posts: 2250; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
i guess Xperia SP is far better than S-mini.
47. giani (Posts: 176; Member since: 13 Nov 2012)
Mate, there are a million options better than the s4 mini...but they will still sell loads of it...
Unfortunately Samsung is the next apple..though apple at least will rob you for a premium feel and looking device so really and truly u have to give it to the correans..selling millions of a hideous plastic slab in dif shapes and sizes it's not easy..and charging u an arm and a leg for it..
God I hope Htc and Sony have good sales...I can't imagine living in a world of iPhones and Galaxies..

i think the plastic never be a problem because almost all manufacturers uses plastic
but the problem is Samsung devices have the worst build quality compare to other big manufacturer
some big manufacturers have prove even with plastic their devices can look and feel premium or at least durable anough

If the price is right I'll buy it. Right now I have a prepaid SIM CARD. Since Im no longer on at&t.
25. soban1997 (Posts: 5; Member since: 11 May 2013)
Why cant they make the mini at least comparable to its older brother
34. Taters (Posts: 2088; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
It'll probably perform better actually. If it is the same one in the Nexus 10 and doesn't have to push 2560 x 1600 it will crush the GS4 performance. It will be the same situation as the One S outperforming the One X. Whether or not the performance and battery improvement is worth going from 440 PPI to 256 PPI, that is up to you.
45. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1113; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
oohhh so you okay with low resolution, low ppi and low chipset
as long the devices have great performance.
but why you complain about Xperia Tablet Z???
Xperia Tablet Z
great display with high brightness, vivid colors, and very good viewing angles.
Four-speaker system with virtual surround modes.
Slimmest and lightest 10” tablet (in other words the most comfortable 10" tablet to use).
water and dust resistant (so you can take it virtually anywhere)
great performance (beats Nexus 10 on benchmark) and have better battery life even with smaler battery.
Nexus up to 9 h (multimedia) vs Xperia Tablet Z up to 10 h (multimedia)
let me ask you again why you're complaining Xperia Tablet Z???
60. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1616; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Errr where did he bash the Xperia z.....fanboy much? But seriously this thing should perform beutifully ...
64. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1113; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
did you read my comment?
its Xperia Tablet Z not Xperia Z
you can check his comment on Xperia Tablet Z review
85. Taters (Posts: 2088; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
I didn't say I was okay with...moron. I said it was an option. Learn how to read before you even try and have a debate with someone please.
86. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1113; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
haha... yes i read you comment properly and i can see what you really means,
even with low resolution, low ppi and low chipset why are you not complaining?? just like what you do with Xperia Tablet Z
or maybe because this S4 mini is from your beloved company
samsung fanboys like you and your beloved friends like to bash other manufacturer
but you never complain samsung devices even when you know that the devices is sucks
oh i know maybe because your beloved company also like to bash and troll, so thats why you just act like them

69. therealestboy (Posts: 47; Member since: 03 May 2013)
LOL, What product does Apple copy from Samsung. Google? Perhaps so. Samsung does not make Android.

38. SonyFindOneDroidple (Posts: 441; Member since: 11 May 2013)
32GB of native storage..
Thats the most intriguing part there because if this is true, then Samsung has learned a solid lesson now.. Well done. 256ppi is not bad. Whats bad?_the comments lol

When did 4.3 inch become "mini." I'm most likely going to get a new phone in the next couple of months and would like a smaller phone. I have had a 4.3 inch phone before "thunderbolt" and I feel that was big for me. Not that bad definitely useable but still big.
However just cause I want a smaller phone doesn't mean I don't want a screen with >300ppi. That really bothers me and could stop me from getting this phone. People who have smaller hands may want smaller phones but they still want high end phones in smaller packages. They better come in with an aggressive price.
