Well, that didn't take long. Just a week after Samsung announced its newest flagship phone, we get rumors of the Mini version of the same. As before, it's not just a smaller version of the phone, but a lower-specced version as well. In fact, in terms of the display, the rumored specs are much lower. 960x540 to the tune of 256ppi. In other words, exactly half the resolution (the GS4 packs 1920x1080) and a little more than half the ppi (441ppi).
Here are the rest of the alleged specs:
- Super AMOLED qHD display (est. 4.3")
- 1.6GHz dual-core CPU
- TW Nature UX 2.0
- Android 4.2.2
So far, that's all she wrote. From the screen resolution and ppi we can guess the display size is 4.3" so it's significantly smaller than the S4 as well as being less powerful. Then again, those who dislike the trend of phones becoming bigger than their whole head may be pleased. The device is also rumored to come in a dual-SIM variant as well.
We still haven't heard anything confirming this device from Samsung, but the pictures seem to be on the up-and-up, and this fits with Samsung's previous patterns perfectly. As June/July gets closer, we'll surely find out.
