SGS4 Mini, as expected, has average specifications. With 4.3-inches display and res of 540*960 pixels (qHD), it has pixel density of 256ppi. The display is Super Amoled capacitive which means you’ll see deep blacks and great contrast on this screen. On the chipset side, it contains Qualcomm MSM8930 Snapdragon 400 CPU with Adreno 305 GPU. The dual-core processor is clocked at 1.7GHz speed. It has 1.5GB RAM. So, the chipset and RAM amount together makes this a good phone which is capable of delivering good performance as well. The internal memory is 8GB, but user-available is limited to 5GB. It comes with latest Android 4.2.2 JB OS. 8mp camera with LED Flash is fitted on its back which can shoot Full HD videos as well.

The price of SGS4 Mini has not been announced yet. The release date of GS4 Mini is scheduled for later half of June or start of July, depending on market. In India and other prospective asian countries, Galaxy S4 Mini Duos variant will be released because users prefer dual-sim model here. Also, 4G LTE android smartphones are not yet sold in India. Galaxy S4 Mini LTE variant will be most likely released in US and some other countries where LTE is more readily available.
