The official Samsung website has revealed model numbers for two upcoming GALAXY S 4 Mini smartphones. These model numbers were tucked away in the code and began with the discovery of the GT-I9190. From there, the GT-I9195 was also discovered. The specs of the I9195 were (with one exception) identical to those of the I9190.
Basically, the code arrived in the form of the user-agent profile which shows the handset as sporting a display resolution of 960 x 540. Nothing all that surprising in that respect as previous leaks had already pegged the resolution as just that. Those earlier leaks also show the handset as having a 4.3-inch display and running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
The remaining leaked specs for the GALAXY S 4 Mini show the handset with options for 8GB, 16GB or 32GB of storage and with a 2 megapixel front-facing camera and 8 megapixel rear-facing camera. Touching back on these model numbers and we can mention the one difference between the I9190 and the I9195 — the addition of LTE on the latter. There is also a third model GALAXY S 4 Mini expected — one with a dual-SIM setup using the model number of GT-I9192.
All said and done, while this discovery hints that an announcement may be coming up fairly soon, we still have yet to learn anything direct from Samsung. In the end though, what we expect here is what we saw with the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy S III Mini. By that, we mean the GALAXY S 4 Mini should arrive as a smaller and lower spec’d version of the GALAXY S 4. But perhaps key, the GALAXY S 4 Mini will also arrive with a lower price point.
