Now that Samsung's new flagship smartphone has been unveiled, speculation is mounting that Samsung will launch a smaller version of the handset, as it did with the S3. Now it seems that the rumours were true, as photos purporting to be of a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini have leaked online.
The Mini, according to the latest disclosure by Sammobile, will feature a 4.3in Super AMOLED qHD (quarter HD) display with resolution of 960 x 540 pixels giving it a pixel density of 256 pixels per inch (ppi). This is against the 5in full HD Super AMOLED display of the Galaxy S4 with a pixel density of 441 ppi.
The Galaxy S4 Mini will run the latest version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.2.2, and feature the TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 user interface (UI). The device will be powered by a dual-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz.
As the leaked photos show, the Galaxy S4 Mini is very similar to the Galaxy S4.
The Galaxy S4 Mini, with model number GT-I9190, is also likely to be available in a dual-SIM version, which will carry a model number of GT-I9192.
There is no word on a launch date, but it is expected to be unveiled in either June or July this year.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is said to be one of the three devices under Samsung's Project J line-up. The handset was earlier rumoured to be launched in week 21, which is some time during May. Based on an earlier disclosure, the Galaxy S4 and its cousin are expected to feature similar accessories. The only difference is the Galaxy S4 Mini will come without a wireless charging dock.
