Samsung finally announced the rumored Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone. This mid-range handset is the stripped down version of the company’s flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone. The 5 inch full HD display, octa-core processor and 13 megapixel camera found in the Galaxy S4 has been replaced with a smaller 4.3 inch qHD display, less powerful dual-core processor and 8 megapixel camera. However, this handset runs on the same Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) Operating System and packs all the gimmicky features which was first seen in the original Galaxy S4.

JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communication Division at Samsung Electronics, said,
“We appreciate such unprecedented demands for the GALAXY S4 that we aimed to provide users with life companion for a fuller, richer and simpler life. And now, we want to give people more choices with GALAXY S4 mini, similar look & feel of Galaxy S4 for more compact and practical usages. “The new GALAXY S4 mini provides consumers with a new way to enjoy the flagship Galaxy S4 experience.”
