AT&T announced on Monday that it will officially sell the Galaxy S4 mini, with support for its new HD Voice VoLTE network, starting on May 23. If you’re like us, you might have thought AT&T already sold the Galaxy S4 mini. Turns out it didn’t, it just pre-announced that it was coming ages and ages ago.
The Galaxy S4 Mini is far from new and, in fact, we’re still awaiting news on the rumored Galaxy S5 Mini. Still, if you live in one of AT&T’s new HD Voice markets, including Minneapolis and Chicago, and like the smaller form factor, then the Galaxy S4 Mini might be a compelling option. It offers a 4.3-inch 960 x 540-pixel display, an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of onboard storage, NFC, an IR blaster for controlling your TV and more.
The Galaxy S4 Mini will provide you access to AT&T’s next-generation voice network, but at a fraction of the cost of flagship handsets. It’s priced at just $49.99 with a new two-year contract, but can also be purchased with an AT&T Next 18 plan for $14.24 per month, or with a Next 12 plan for $18.50 per month for 24 months.
