Just a few weeks ago Samsung took the stage and announced their new flagship GALAXY S 4 smartphone. Shortly after we immediately started hearing reports and rumors regarding a Galaxy S 4 Mini coming soon. Not only that, but the phone leaked into the wild late last week. Today however, reports from Bloomberg are reportedly confirming both the device, and that it will be hitting the market very soon.
For those who don’t need a top-tier phone, or don’t want a 5-inch 1080p HD display something smaller like the GALAXY S 4 Mini would be perfect. At least Samsung thinks so. We’ve been hearing rumors about Samsung’s Project J being a suite of 3 devices. The first being the GS4, and we’re assuming the other two are the Mini, and the Note III. For now we’ll just have to guess.
While we can’t say for sure that’s their plan, Bloomberg casually mentioned it during some coverage of the GALAXY S 4. Stating that the Mini is real, and will actually go on sale “soon after the launch of the GS4″ which will be launching at the end of next month.
The GS 4 Mini leak last week showed us a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1.6 GHz dual-core processor, and running Android 4.2.2 all in a miniature GS 4 shell. Samsung released a mini Galaxy S III so it only makes sense they’ll do the same with this years flagship. While we probably won’t see it here in the US, users in Europe will get a chance at the bite-sized version of the GALAXY S 4 soon. Stay tuned for more details.[via Bloomberg]
