We’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with Samsung’s Galaxy S4—a diluted version of the flagship S4—a few separate times, but no carrier partner has stepped up to offer the device here in the U.S. That may be set to change in the near future, however, with leaked photos showing the more diminutive device could be headed to Verizon. That carrier branding (along with a very obvious iPhone mirror shot) is unmistakeable.
The images were provided to Engadget by an anonymous source—no details like price or release were shared. But the device has been stopping by the necessary channels recently, suggesting a release is imminent. Not everyone has an insatiable thirst for new, best, greatest; if you simply want a device that can handle everyday tasks with aplomb, well, the S4 Mini might just be your device. If you want a quick and dirty look at the handset, you can check out our unboxing here.
