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.
