Mention of Galaxy S4 Mini Appears On Samsung Site

Samsung's website has revealed another little gem, as discovered by the twitter community. A Galaxy S4 mini recently appeared in Samsung's listings, which points to a cheaper alternative to the Galaxy S4, similar to the Galaxy S3 and its mini counterpart. According to the listings, there are four variants of the device. These are dual-SIM (GT-I9192), 4G enabled (GT-I9195), China specific (GT-I9198) and a standard stock model (GT-I9190).

Specific details are unclear, but rumors indicate the phone will sport a 1.6 GHz dual core processor as well as a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED qHD display with a resolution on 960x540 pixels (256 ppi). It will probably be running on Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 with the TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 software pre-installed alongside the operating system.

While waiting for confirmation of the device's existence from Samsung, we can assume that it will probably only be available around June or July, as Samsung wouldn't want to pull sales away from the larger Galaxy S4. Naturally, we do not expect all variants to be be available everywhere as launching the China model in the USA would be rather redundant.

    The S3 Mini was a joke of a phone. Riding on the coattails of the "real" GS3. I wonder how many people got suckered into buying that POS?

    Now they're at it again making a dumbed-down cheap phone but using the name "GS4" to imply it's somehow as good, just "smaller".

    For the price they charge for the GS4 Mini I would rather have the GS4 even if I wanted the more petite version. This should be atleast $200 to $250 cheaper.

    GS4 - 1080p 5" AMOLED 441ppi, 2GB RAM, 16GB, 2.0GHZ Octo-core Exynos 5450 - US$599

    GS4 Mini - 720p 4.3" AMOLED 342ppi, 2GB RAM, 16GB, 1.5GHZ Octo-core Exynos 5450 - US$499
    or
    GS4 Mini - QHD 4.3" AMOLED 256ppi, 2GB RAM, 16GB, 2.0GHZ Quad-core Exynos - US$399
