Today Samsung has officially announced the much-rumoured Galaxy S4 Mini. A compact version of its flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone, the lightweight device runs Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) and comes with a 4.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display and a 1.7GHz dual core processor.
The handset, which weighs 107g, also sports an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.9-megapixel HD front-facing camera, which come with the same features as the original S4 such as Sound&Shot, Panorama Shot and Story Album.
The Galaxy S4 Mini will come with 8GB of internal memory (user memory approximately 5GB) and microSD up to 64GB and will be available in two colours – White Frost and Black Mist.
The UK shipping date is due to be announced soon, after the device is launched to the press at Samsung’s London event on 20th June.
Other features include the S Translator, which instantly translates text or voice on applications including email and text messages, and the S Health app, which enables users monitor their calorie balance.
Simon Stanford, Vice President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland, said: “Demand for the Galaxy S4 has been phenomenal since it launched in April.
“We hope to build on this success with the Galaxy S4 Mini. This new handset is the ideal smartphone companion for anyone who wants a compact device packed with innovation.”
