NEW DELHI: After months of frantic speculations, Samsung Galaxy S4 went official recently at an event in New York. However, even before Samsung’s newest smartphone has hit the shelves, speculations have begun over the company also soon launching its smaller sibling Galaxy S4 Mini. Several images claiming to be of Galaxy S4 Mini have surfaced on the internet.
Twitter user Ermek Kubanychbekov posted images of the upcoming Galaxy S4 Mini, though he did not mention his source. The model number of the device is GT-I9190 and runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), just like its bigger sibling. The images show that the yet-to-be-announced smartphone will follow the design language that was introduced last year with the Samsung Galaxy S III and continued with the Samsung Galaxy S4.
According to rumours, Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini has a 4.3-inch SuperAMOLED display with 960x540p resolution and 256ppi pixel density. It is expected to run on a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and have the manufacturer’s proprietary Nature UX 2.0 over the stock operating system.
A report in SamMobile says that the South Korean manufacturer will launch single-sim as well as dual-sim variants of Galaxy S4 Mini. This phone will be rolled out in June or July this year, says the report.
In October 2012, Samsung launched Galaxy S III Mini, the smaller version of its erstwhile flagship phone Galaxy S III.
