Samsung Galaxy S4 mini has its sights set on the U.S., will arrive in the states next month
Samsung has announced on Wednesday, that the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is making its way to the U.S. and will arrive there in November. Describing the device as a "compact smartphone" with some of the features you'd find in the Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung says the device is just 4.9 inches x 2.4 inches. Equipped with a 4.3 inch display with resolution of 540 x 960 (qHD), the phone is powered by a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage inside. The latter can be expanded using the 64GB capacity microSD slot. A 1900mAh removable battery keeps the lights on and Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed. A software update soon after the launch of the phone will make it compatible with the new Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

Other features include special modes for the 8MP rear facing camera such as Beauty Face, Best Photo, Sound & Shot, and Panorama that allow anyone to take pictures with special effects.The zero shutter lag means having the camera at the ready, waiting for you to document any occasion or situation that comes up. WatchON allows you to use the handset as a remote for your television, and Easy Mode allows those not familiar with Android or smartphones in general, to have a home screen layout with a browser, calendar, camera and messaging. Lastly, S Beam helps you transfer large files containing photos, videos and documents to another S Beam equipped phone with a tap of the two devices.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini will be available in Black Mist and White Frost from Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and U.S. Cellular.
