Although we were originally expecting the sawn-off S4 on 5 July, online shops now promise the Android smart phone in mere days.
The Mini is offered by all the networks and is expected to be a smash hit like its predecessor, the Galaxy S3 Mini. You can get the phone free on contract, with the odd fancy deal thrown in for good measure: order your S4 Mini on 4G network EE, for example, and you can bag yourself a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7-inch tablet to boot.
One of three spin-offs of the S4 smart phone powerhouse -- alongside the S4 Zoom and S4 Active -- the S4 Mini sports a 4.3-inch screen with a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM underneath. Be warned though -- it's very definitely not an S4 with a couple of inches planed off. The Mini doesn't have a high-definition screen, as a f'instance, and the processor isn't a patch on the quad-core S4.
Are you planning to slip an S4 Mini into your pocket, or is it a pale shadow of the S4? Tell me your thoughts in the comments or on our Facebook page?
