The S4 Mini will come with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display (compared to the S4's 5-inch screen). It'll have a resolution of 540x960 pixels, and a pixel-per-inch count of 256ppi, which is much lower than the S4's 441ppi. 4.3 inches isn't really all that mini either, seeing as it's bigger than an iPhone 5. But let's not quibble.
Specs-wise, the S4 Mini is pretty middling, as you'd expect from a second-fiddle phone. A 1.66GHz dual-core processor powers things, while it runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, just like its bigger brother. It looks much like the S4 too, with the same thin bezel and rounded corners.
The S4 Mini is expected to launch around June or July. There's no word on a price yet, but it's sure to be cheaper than the S4, meaning you can get a taste of the flagship phone's design on a budget. Just sadly not the specs.
The Galaxy S4 is the most pre-ordered handset ever, according to figures from Carphone Warehouse. But maybe that's not too surprising, seeing as the S3 sold 40 million units. The S4 Mini won't hit anywhere near those numbers, but it's sure to piggyback off the juggernaut that is the S4.
Would you be tempted by the S4 Mini? Or will it be a pale imitation of the S4? Let me know in the comments, or on our Facebook page.
