Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini pre-orders kick off in the UK ahead of early July release

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini pre-orders are now underway, with the sub-sized spinoff to the flagship Samsung Galaxy S4 set to hit retailers early next month.

Having formally unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini in recent weeks, one of a trio of Samsung Galaxy S4 offshoots to have been announced, Samsung has now seen its Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini replacement made available for pre-order through a selection of leading UK networks.

With both Orange and T-Mobile having announced their intentions to sport the smaller S4 sibling, the networks have even offered pricing for the device which has been pegged with a potential June 5 Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini release date.

Set to be made available on £26 per month, two year contracts, Orange has revealed that those pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini will not be forced to pay the usual £49.99 upfront handset fee which will apply to wannabe owners after launch.

For this rather reasonable outlet, early adopters will see their S4 Mini handset paired with 200 monthly minutes, unlimited texts and a 750MB monthly data allowance. The network is to offer the 4.3-inch device in both of its S4 mimicking ‘black mist’ and ‘white frost’ colour options.

Shaking things up slightly, sister network T-Mobile has confirmed that, for the same monthly outlay, it will offer the S4 Mini alongside 300 minutes, 500 texts and 1MB of data.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Features

Not quite the industry powerhouse like its 5-inch big brother, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini specs sheet revolves around a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display and Google’s Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS.

Boasting a 1.7GHz dual-core processor at its heart, the S4 Mini features list is further enhanced by an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera, second, 1.9-megapixel forward-facing snapper and a raft of Samsung’s latest software features.

With the headline grabbing, eye-tracking Smart Pause and Smart Scroll making the cut, Samsung has also bestowed the S4 Mini with the likes of S Health and a bevy of camera options.
