Specs and pictures of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 mini are leaked
Now that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has been introduced, it is time to take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S 4 mini. A tweet sent out by one Ermek Kubanychbekov revealed the specs of the handset while also leaking photos of the device. According to the tweet, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 mini will have a 4.3 inch SuperAMOLED screen with qHD resolution which works out to a 256ppi pixel density. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.6GHz processor. Driving the phone is Android 4.2.2 with the TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 running on top.

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 mini (GT-I9190) is going to be available in a dual SIM variant as well as a single SIM version, and as you can tell from the pictures, takes its design cues directly from its big brother. The unit is expected to be launched in June or July. You might remember that Apple dropped its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S III mini, from its upcoming patent trial against Samsung since the phone was not offered in the U.S. Apple complained that it was able to get the phone shipped to the U.S. a number of times from Amazon, but agreed to drop the phone from the suit anyway. It all means that we shouldn't expect to see the Samsung Galaxy S 4 mini launch in the states.

Can someone please explain why buying one of these mini's is any different from buying a mid range "galaxy" phone with a different title?

Probably just more up to date software and slightly better specs and better design.

Then it would sell way more than the big S4...

And that would be a problem how ?

maybe it won't out sell the S4 but I'm sure it'll still sell like hotcakes! Not everyone want huge phones. I'm still waiting for a high end with 4.3" screen T_T

A dual core?? I hope it's an S4 pro. What would've been perfect for S4 Mini : quad core Exynos 4, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB storage, and more importantly, 4-4.3 inch 720p AMOLED screen. I need a small phone. It looks cool though.

I am hoping for a Qualcomm 600 clocked at 1ghz, 2gb ram, 32gb storage, 2100 mah battery, and 768p 4inch screen. I doubt it though. I would settle for GS3 specs with the size of a GS1 or Nexus S. Maybe the HTC M4 if the M7(HTC One) doesn't take up their entire budget for 2013. Seeing all the ads and seeing how Apple gets a cut now would suggest that it is going to take the entire budget, which is sad. The Xiaomi Phone 2 would sell like hot cakes here. Samsung should just buy it and release it as the GS4 mini.

S4 features on the s2 design and size

LOL that spec would've outsell the SGS III. They should be make the spec just below the S III, since S III Mini is just 200 MHz, half of storage, and 0.3 mpx below but the same resolution as the S II. So according to pattern of S III Mini: it should be: 1.2-1.4 GHz Exynos/or other Quad CPU, 1 GB of RAM, and well 5-8 mpx camera with 720p resolution. Now that's perfect.

Looks more appealing than the S4, 4.3 is -my- sweet point for phones screen. Lets hope the screen its a super PLS and not amoled not plus.

I would personally use scrawny, puny, petite feminine, tooth pick like, or inadequate to describe the size of the iphone 5.

I wasn't trying to offend anyone, but you're right, puny fits better.

Look samsung you are really starting to piss me off I just learned today that samsung also makes ships WHAT? And you can't make one Premium Android Phone at all, one would wonder with all the phones samsung brings out every year there would be atleast one quality phone. The front of your phone are covered with gorilla glass all you have todo cover the back with metal, aluminum, even gorilla glass or plexxy glass, call the ship division and ask them to send over some metal


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

They have stopped using metal, aluminium when the first Galaxy series! If you look back at there phones from 2003 till 2009 it's quality! I wonder why do they love plastic....? It looks cheap!

Look at the galaxy tab7.7 and the blue galaxy note1(international version)both of them don't use cheap looking plastic

I feel like the resolution is wrong. Samsung has never used qHD before. So it's probably a crappy WVGA display.
