Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini: 256ppi Display, Dual-Core Processor And Android 4.2.2 (Rumor)
Much like the Samsung Galaxy S3 was followed up with a mini version with lower specs - and a lower price - it appears Galaxy S4 Mini is in the works as well. And now there are photos to go along with the rumors.
The Galaxy S4 mini is expected to be released this summer, and photos were spotted on Friday when SamMobile Twitter follower Ermek posted a number of images of the upcoming smartphone.
S4's mini sibling is rumored to come with 4.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display with a pixel density of 256ppi, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, and run on Android 4.2.2. The mini will come with a dual-sim version.
The Galaxy S4 with a 4.99" full HD Super AMOLED display, 13-megapixel camera, and a quad-core (or octa-core processor in some regions) is on its way and will be hitting stores in April. Samsung expects to sell more than 50 million Galaxy S4 devices.
The lower-spec, ostensibly cheaper version of the flagship S4 device is part of Samsung's strategy to cater to the lower-end of market.
Samsung introduced Galaxy Young and Galaxy Fame line of smartphones last month. The Android handsets have smaller screens, less memory capacity and lower-resolution cameras, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The company also rolled out four new feature phones under the REX brand which cost between $50 and $100 and are mainly sold in emerging markets such as India, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and South America.
The prices or release date of the Galaxy S4 Mini haven't been announced.
