Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini to be unveiled this week?
Images of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, a phone rumored to be a 4.3-inch smaller sibling to the Galaxy S4, leaked out earlier, and now with all that information out Samsung has decided to official announce the device earlier and the unveiling should happen this week, according to SamMobile. 

Having most of the technical details out along with images of the device is what allegedly forced such a decision. While the announcement might happen earlier than expected, the Galaxy S4 Mini will launch on plan around the end of May/beginning of June.

The device is said to launch in Black Mist and White Frost, and chances are there will be a single and dual SIM versions of the handset.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is said to have a 4.3” qHD display, an 8-megapixel camera, and run on the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean skinned with the usual Nature UX. The single SIM version is said to launch with a quad-core chip while the DUOS model will allegedly have a dual-core processor. The model numbers for the two devices are GT-I9190 (single SIM) and GT-I9192 (dual SIM).

Why do they call it 'mini' when it is larger than the iphone5

Because it's smaller than the S4.

Is not announced yet, the leak could be fake. If the leak is true, then since it has a 4.3" screen it will probably be just a couple mm wider and thicker than the iPhone 5, maybe the same height, so it would be pretty much the same size if the leak was true.

It's the Galaxy S4 mini, not the iPhone mini. Meaning; it's a miniature version of the Galaxy S4, the iPhone has nothing to do with it.

when it comes to screen size no one is going to benchmark with the puny iphone 5

What i meant was when i read the name 'mini' a 3'' device came to my mind, not this 4.3'' screen.
