Oh Samsung, you surely don’t lose steam when it comes to releasing as many Android devices as possible, do you? While the world is still waiting for the Galaxy S4 to be launched in the market, the Galaxy S4 Mini has already been spotted in the wild, and a couple of specs have also been hinted at.
According to Sammobile, the Galaxy S4 Mini will sport a 4.3″ Super AMOLED screen of qHD (540 x 960) resolution and 256ppi density, which is a bit of an upgrade over the WVGA 4″ display of the Galaxy S3 Mini from last year but a major downgrade from the 5″ 1080p 441ppi display of its bigger brother. The device will be powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core processor of unknown variety, with Android 4.2.2 and the newest version of TouchWiz Nature UX taking care of the software side of things.
No other details are available yet, but one thing is certain – Samsung is refusing to back down from its strategy of flooding the market with various devices and milking the Galaxy brand. It is a pretty sad state of affairs in the Android world where manufacturers refuse to make small devices with high-end specs, and the Galaxy S4 Mini is yet another example of that.
The Galaxy S4 Mini is expected to be released in June or July, with model number GT-I9190, compared to the S3 Mini’s I8190. A few more pictures of the device can be seen below.
