Samsung Galaxy S4 mini pushed to mid-July
The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, a more compact version of the 5-inch Galaxy S4 Android flagship, has been pushed further down the road and is now expected to arrive around the middle of July, or in week 29 of 2013.

The Galaxy S4 mini was first rumored to arrive a couple of weeks ago, but we never heard an official announcement by Samsung, and obviously with the Galaxy S III Mini still being not too old, Samsung has nowhere to rush for.

The S4 mini will allegedly come in two versions right out the gate - one with a single-SIM and another with dual SIM card support. The device is expected to ship in Black Mist and White Frost color versions.

When it comes to specifications, we are once again hearing the following rumors:

- 4.3” qHD display
- 8-megapixel camera,
-Wi-Fi, AGPS,
- Android 4.2.2 with Samsung Touch Wiz Nature UX

Interestingly, the single SIM Galaxy S4 mini is expected to come with a quad-core processor, while the Galaxy S4 mini DUOS will only have a dual-core processor. The two devices carry the Samsung GT-I9190 (single-SIM) and Samsung GT-I9192 (dual-SIM) model numbers.

If you are expecting FHD even on a 4.3inch screen, please dont tell me you want 19200 X 10800 for a 70 inch TV. (yes, not a typo, one extra zero there). Talk about being blinded by specs in pure numbers. Anything under 5 inch doesnt need 1080p. HTC One is probably the only phone under 5 inch with 1080p.

You're saying the launch was delayed when there was nothing but a rumor to begin with. It's time to learn the difference between fact, speculation and innuendo. Apparently, not only do people think it's true if they read something online...they think it's true if they *write" it online, as well.

The reason why it was pushed was because there are so many galaxies out there, if outing this would affect the sales of the S4, and people would be obnixous of how many galaxies which look alike are out there. All the galaxies are a batch of smartphones with the same concept with no attributes towards design.

LOL! Samsung must be having lots of leftover parts from S2.

well.. it is better to have leftover parts from a successful device than being a leftover device since launch.
