Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Gets Spotted in the Wild with Model Number GT-I9190

March 22, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy S3 which was a mega seller. Then in the fall they released the Galaxy S3 Mini which is a 4-inch version of the Galaxy S3 with more mid-range specs. The device also never came to the US, which wasn’t surprising since it didn’t support LTE. But it was available to buy unlocked from Amazon in the US. Today, Sam Mobile appears to have some new information from on of their Twitter followers Ermek, which gave them information about the Galaxy S4 mini, part of Project J.

Before we continue, it’s important to note that this information should be treated as a leak. Since it’s not official, I’d take this all with a grain of salt.

We’ve reported in the past, that Project J isn’t just the Galaxy S4 or a single device, but it includes the Galaxy S4 Mini as well. Just last week, Samsung announced the Galaxy S4 in New York complete with a 4.99″ Super AMOLED Full HD display, Exynos 5 Octa/Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB RAM and coming in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB varieties. Of course, Samsung is looking to sell about 50 million of these devices.

Now in comparison, the Galaxy S4 Mini is supposedly going to be launched in the summer with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, 1.6GHz dual-core CPU, running the Touchwiz Nature UX 2.0 along with Android 4.2.2. You probably noticed in the pictures that the Galaxy S4 mini looks a lot like the Galaxy S4 or the Galaxy S3, or even the Galaxy S3 mini. Well that’s because this year they kept the sameĀ aesthetics for the Galaxy S4.

How many of you would pick up the Galaxy S4 Mini? I know there are plenty of people out there who don’t want a 5-inch phone, and would rather something around 4.3-inch and this would be a great choice. Let us know in the comments below if you’re interested.
