Samsung unveils Galaxy S 4 Mini smartphone
This entry was posted on Friday, May 31, 2013.
Samsung has just officially announced its latest smartphone – the Galaxy S 4 Mini, after a long spell of speculation where little by little, relevant details about it kept pouring out to the public (to the point where little seemed to not be known about the phone). Regardless, the Korean giant is clearly trying to leverage to brand recognition and goodwill built up through its flagship Samsung Galaxy S series by expanding it to alternatives such as the new S 4 Mini. Read on to know more about it!
The Samsung Galaxy S 4 Mini is clearly targeted toward the mid tier market, as opposed to the premium high end clientele that the flagship S 4 is targeted towards. The S 4 Mini has a 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED display, an 8 MP main camera (with the Sound & Shot feature that Samsung has heavily promoted for the S 4), S Health and the WatchON app.
The S 4 Mini has a rather decent Snapdragon 400 chipset with a 1.7 GHz dual core processor, which should give it enough horsepower to tackle most of the demanding games in Google Play without so much so as a single hiccup.
The new Samsung phone has the latest Android Jelly Bean version 4.2.2 in it, but Samsung has decided to slap on its own TouchWiz skin as always. Despite its improvements compared to its predecessors, the new Nature UX is still rather poorly designed, one must say.
The Galaxy S 4 Mini will be formally launched on June 20th as we’d reported earlier, and in London no less. There are the makings of a fairly impressive phone in the specs of the S 4 Mini, and should they choose to keep the price at an appropriately affordable level, it could prove to be quite the success as well.
