The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4 is scheduled to go on sale during April, but new information received suggests that we won’t have long to wait at all for a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini variant as well. Photos showing the bite size version have surfaced, giving you an early teaser of the size differences compared to its bigger brother.
To refresh your memory, the Galaxy S3 Mini arrived around five months after the standard handset arrived. It appears that Samsung are speeding up the process this year though, as the Galaxy S4 Mini is thought to be available for shipping throughout June and July.
The Galaxy S4 comes with that lovely new 5-inch 1080p HD display screen, but the Mini version is reported to be shipping with a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display in comparison, so not full 1080p. Elsewhere and unsurprisingly, there won’t be a new Octa core Exynos 5 processor, but rather a dual-core 1.6Ghz chip instead.
There is one piece of good news in the fact that the Mini Galaxy S4 will reportedly ship with the same version of Android as its bigger brother – Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, which is the newest version of Google’s OS that is available at the moment. The image you see above is the Galaxy S4 Mini side-by-side with the standard version, and you have to say that it still looks very pretty indeed.
For those that believe that 5-inches is too big and are looking to save a bit of money, the mini version could be perfect for you. We’re guessing Samsung will make this official in the coming weeks. For now, let us know whether you would be interested in picking up the smaller version as a preference to the bigger model.
