The Galaxy S4 Mini news just keeps coming and now the first promotional video showing off the upcoming 4.3-inch handset has been released by U.K. cellular carrier Three. If you were wondering why anyone would opt for a smaller version of the S4 instead of the real deal, we’ve finally got an answer.
“Some of you out there have told me that you don’t want to carry around a 5-inch smartphone because it’s simply too big,” says Three’s Brendan Arndt. “Well, the Galaxy S4 Mini brings the premium and the best features from the Galaxy S4 in an extremely pocketable size.
The Galaxy S4 Mini sports a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. It’s 8.94 mm thick and weighs in a 107 grams. The handset comes with Android 4.2.2 overlaid with Samsung’s custom software which offers several features including Panorama Shot, Story Album and Sound&Shot in the camera as well as the S Health and S Translator apps.
The Galaxy S4 Mini will be officially unveiled at a Samsung press conference in London on June 20 where we hope to learn how much the handset costs, and may also get a look at the Galaxy S4 Active and the Galaxy S4 Zoom.
