It has been only a week, since the launch of Galaxy S4 in New York City, leaving millions of Samsung fans across the world waiting for the handset to hit the market. So soon, a report has started swirling online claiming that a miniature version of the Galaxy S4 - the S3 Mini successor is in works.
Remember Project J, the mission that not only covers Galaxy S4 but a few other Samsung devices? Well, it has been rumored that Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy Smart Watch codenamed Altius will also be a part of the project.
According to a SamMobile report, the alleged images of the Galaxy S4 Mini, which is nothing but a shrunken version of the flagship smartphone has been leaked. Apart from the alleged images of Galaxy S4 Mini, the report also reveals some of the purported specifications of the miniature handset. According to the report, below are the top 5 aspects discovered about the Galaxy S4 Mini.
Display: It is speculated that Galaxy S4 Mini will come with a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display with a qHD resolution of 960 x 540 pixels and 256 ppi pixel density.
Processor: Being the miniature of Galaxy S4, the report suggests that the Galaxy S4 Mini will have a dual core 1.6GHz processor instead of an octa core or quad core chip.
Android Jelly Bean OS: One aspect that S4 Mini might borrow from Galaxy S4 is the OS as the report hints that the upcoming handset might run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS and come with TouchWIZ TW Nature UX 2.0.
Dual SIM Variant: As the demand for the dual SIM smartphones is on the rise and as Samsung itself has seen a huge success with the Galaxy Grand Duos, the speculation that Galaxy S4 Mini will be a dual SIM smartphone is not too surprising.
Launch Date: It is also speculated that the smaller variant will be launched in June or July this year in order to give a tough competition to the Apple iPhone 5S, which is reportedly the cheaper variant of iPhone 5 also rumored to come at the same time.
