With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4, comes the demand for a smaller and more affordable model, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. The Samsung Galaxy S4 also provides a reasonable alternative to Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S4, which has launched in over 50 countries and has left the South Korean company struggling to meet high demand.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is still yet to be released but the device has just received Bluetooth certification meaning it is gearing up for a release very soon – possibly in the next month. The Samsung GT-I9195, aka the Galaxy S4 Mini, will ship with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and will be Samsung’s second smartphone to run the latest Android OS.

In comparison to the full sized Galaxy S4 model, the Galaxy S4 Mini version reportedly sports a 540 by 960 resolution 4.3 inch display, comes with a dual core 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 8/16/32GB of internal storage. Other rumours suggest microSD expansion of up to 32GB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, GPS and two varieties of the phone: 4G LTE and Dual SIM.

What are your thoughts on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini? Does it look like a good alternative to the bigger and more expensive Galaxy S4? Are you more likely to buy this one over its more expensive sibling?

    4.3″ isn’t that mini to me. Is there a decently specced phone that’s more like 3.5″?

  • Bah. We’ll probably wind up paying a premium just for the S4 moniker and it’s still way too big. I’ll pass on this one as well.

  • To recap, the galaxy s4 Mini will have a Super AMOLED qHD 4.3 “(256 PPI), a dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz
