Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini officially announced

Samsung has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, the smaller mid-range version of its flagship Samsung Galaxy S4.

The reduced spec and size sees the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini pack a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display and a 1.7GHz dual-core processor.

“Demand for the Galaxy S4 has been phenomenal since it launched in April and we hope to build on this success with the Galaxy S4 Mini,” Simon Stanford, Vice President of IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland. “This new handset is the ideal smartphone companion for anyone who wants a compact device packed with innovation.”

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Features

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini features a 1.7GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory, which can be expanded via the microSD card slot for memory cards up to 64GB.

It has a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and features the new TouchWiz UI functionalities including S Translator and S Health.

Playing host to an 8-megpixel camera in the rear and 1.9-megapixels up front, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini features Sound and Shoot, Story Album, S Travel, Panorama Shot and other new photographic options showcased in the Samsung Galaxy S4.

With a 1,900mAh, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini has Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and IR LED connectivity and has 124.6 x 61.3 x 8.94mm dimensions. Weighing in at 107g, it is considerably lighter than the 130g Galaxy S4, and much smaller too (see the comparison below).

The handset packs Samsung Knox security software too and will launch in 4G and 3G varieties.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Release Date
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini will launch in White Frost and Black Mist colour variations, with the handset available for 4G LTE networks as well as 3G and a 3G Dual Sim version, though we doubt this will come to the UK.

Samsung will confirm a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini release date soon, so check back with TrustedReviews for more details in the coming weeks.
