Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Pictured Again, Still Looks Kind of Nice

Mini 1 (Copy)

We have seen the Galaxy S4 Mini pictured once or twice already, but still nothing official has come out of Samsung on a potential release date or that it even exists. Today, a new gallery hit the web, giving us a really good look at the Galaxy S4′s little brother. As we can see, it uses that same under-the-skin pattern that we like so much the on the Galaxy S4, but for those hoping it will be the same overly-powered device, just in a smaller package, prepare to be disappointed. 

The specs for the S4 Mini haven’t changed from the last time we saw them; 4.3″ Super AMOLED display at a resolution of just 960 x 540, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and either a 5 or 8MP camera. While the dual-core chip and camera doesn’t too bad, that display is a pure no go in our books.

It’s a nice little phone, but the lack of power and lack of an HD display is a downer.

    Looks kind of gross. It has hives or something.

    Looks like snakeskin pants with a gator belt

    And THIS is why we equate sub 4.5 inch devices as ‘sub par’…there is no reason why it cant have decent specs. imagine a world where an android flagship is just as good in its ‘small’ version as it is in its ‘regular’ version.

    It’s pretty much my Galaxy S II I have on T-Mobile. Just with a bit better resolution.

    One of these days Samsung may finally recognize the demand for high-end specs in a smaller package. The S4 Mini concept is there, but the execution is all wrong. Why can’t they just take the S4 internals and put them in a sub-5″ frame? Is that so hard, Samsung?

      It’s not about giving geeks and power users what we want, it’s about hitting all the price points. They can’t hit that mid-range target with high-end specs.

    first they make a phone like s4, powerful and great, and then ruin the s series by releasing mediocre “mini” phones, i mean at least a better screen would be nice!

    • michael arazan

      But will it have a Mini price? $600 FP for the sg4, so $300 full price for the Mini?

      Did the SG3 mini ever get released, i remember the rumors but not the actual sales announcement

      • ppero196

        Yes it was. Back in October/November. It’s not being sold in the US tho

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1358017682 Milind Shah

        don’t know about us, but in india it is being sold

    • KleenDroid

      They put out piddly phones like this to compete with all the Motorola phones.

      People either want a top tier phone or something like this or a Motorola.

        but then why relate it to the s series? i mean the s series has been line of high end phones, and then they really release mediocre phones under that brand…why?

    Looks just as cheap as the other Sammys

          The thing about trolls…it’s no fun when they’re obvious.

      • nvitone23

        Too bad it actually does exist…

        • Sqube

          Yeah? Proof? Any kind of proof? I’ve been dying for proof, as has the rest of the internet.

          • nvitone23

    It’s not the size that matters. It’s how you use it.

    • New_Guy

      Unless it’s a Galaxy Note….. then it’s both.

    • diesel8

  • Ruvim

    • Niall Fox

      “never used one of those.” does not make it okay
