Samsung’s slimmed down take on the Galaxy S4 will go on sale in July, it has been confirmed, offering the key features of its bigger brother in a compact and bijou package.
The UK due date for the handset was officially announced by Phones4U, which will be selling the Galaxy S4 Mini from day one. The retailer has yet to make any sort of announcement about pricing, but we expect the phone to be free from around £30 per month.
Unveiled today, Samsung’s latest effort’s spec sheet includes a smaller 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display – down from the five-inch number that features on the standard S4. A 1.7GHz dual-core processor is also on board the Android Jelly Bean-powered kit, as is an eight-megapixel rear-mounted camera and a front-facing secondary 1.9-megapixel snapper.
Perhaps best of all, though, is that owners get the full complement of Nature UX user interface tweaks and new proprietary apps that featured on the Galaxy S4. That includes the S Health well-being monitor and the Smart Scroll, which lets owners scroll through pages just by tilting their handset.
