Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is now official, coming in June
After lots of rumors, speculations, and photos being leaked on the web, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is now officially official. And it is just what the name implies – a smaller, more compact version of the maker's current flagship smartphone with trimmed down specs. Here's what you need to know about it.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini comes with a Super AMOLED display measuring 4.3 inches in diagonal. (Remember when 4.3-inch phones were considered anything but small?) The resolution of the panel is 540 by 960 pixels, which is okay, but nothing really impressive. Processing power is provided by a dual-core processor of unknown at this time make and model, paired with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage expandable with a microSD card. There are a couple of cameras on it, naturally, with a resolution of 8MP for the main one and 1.9MP for the front-facing snapper. Behind the back cover is tucked a 1900mAh battery. The unit itself is just under 9mm thick and weighs only 107 grams.

On the software side of things, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The interface has been tweaked heavily, of course, and even some of the tricks present on the Galaxy S4 are available on the Mini as well. These include Sound & Shot, which captures sound while taking photos, and more. Samsung has also added the S Translator app and WatchON, which turns the smartphone into a TV or home theater system remote control.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini will be on display on June 20 during the official Samsung Premiere event in London. Which markets will get it first is something we have yet to learn. What we know, on the other hand, is that three variants of the device will be available – with LTE, HSPA+, or 3G dual-SIM arrangement, depending on the market's needs.
