After being excessively leaked online, Samsung finally confirmed the Galaxy S4 mini handset. As rumored, the specs of the handset are weaker compared to the Galaxy S4. It is a smaller version of the flagship Galaxy S4 but it’s not only the size that was reduced.
The processor for the Galaxy S4 mini, for instance is a 1.7GHz dual-core CPU instead of the octa-core or quad-core processors on the Galaxy S4. Other hardware specs include 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB internal memory (expandable up to 64GB), 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera and 1,900mAh battery. The display measures 4.3-inches and it’s the qHD Super AMOLED type.
Completing the hardware specs are LTE, GPS, GLONASS, WiFi and Bluetooth. The Galaxy S4 mini will come in single and dual-SIM 3G versions and will launch in two color choices only – white and black.
Pricing and availability are unknown at this point. The Galaxy S4 mini will most likely be available in the Philippines as well. If I may hazard a guess, the Galaxy S4 mini will be priced at around P15,000 to P18,000 when it launches in the Philippines.
