Samsung has delayed the launch of the Galaxy S4 Mini, reports suggest, in what we’re guessing is a strategic decision to focus on ensuring there is sufficient stock of its larger flagship phone.
According to sources cited by SamMobile, the release of the junior version of the Galaxy S4 has been put back from week 21 to week 29. In layman’s talk, that equates to a street date of mid-July.
The report doesn’t give even a putative reason for shifting the date. But with Samsung reportedly expecting to shift ten million units of the S4 in the first month, the smart money must surely be Samsung deciding to concentrate on getting the full-sized S4 in punters’ hands.
Featuring the same UX tweaks as its costlier stablemate, such as floating touch and tilt-to-scroll, the S4 Mini’s spec sheet takes in a 4.3” qHD display and an eight megapixel camera.
Powered by Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) out of the box, the phone also packs a dual-core processor and comes in Black Mist and White Frost colour options.
