Samsung is believed to cash-in on the success of its front-end flagship devices and S4 mini’s announcement reinforces the belief. The S4 mini features a 4.3-inch screen capable of 960 x 540 pixel resolution and is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor. The younger sibling of the Galaxy S4 is equipped with an 8-megapixel camera, has 8GB of integrated internal storage (5GB usable) and packs 1.5GB of RAM.

The Galaxy S 3 mini on the other hand had only a 4-inch screen capable of 800 x 480 pixel resolution. The S3 mini was powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor, had a 5MP camera and offered two storage options – 8GB and 16GB.

Talking about the operating system, S4 mini, like its bigger sibling, runs Android 4.2.2. The S4 mini can also use S Health app, can control TVs, set-top boxes, DVD players using the WatchON’s IR remote. S4 mini will support either LTE, HSPA+ or 3G with dual SIM support. Samsung said that local markets will dictate which models will be launched in that particular region. Samsung hasn’t revealed anything about the pricing of the S4 mini though.
