Rumors flew in regarding the Galaxy S4 mini, and we had a pretty good idea that it would be headed to the United States on four carriers. All we needed was confirmation.
And guess what? Now we have that.
In a press release, Samsung announced that the phone is US-bound, and will be available from Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, and US Cellular.
The device is similar to its bigger brother, but has a smaller frame and lesser internals. It features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display at 960×540 resolution, a dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 1.5GB RAM, 16GB internal storage which is expandable via microSD, an 8 MP rear shooter, and a 1,900mAh battery.
The phone ships with 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and the most recent version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI— this means that you’ll get most of the same software add-ins that the full S4 has. Samsung also made it known that the device will receive a software update which will allow it to support Galaxy Gear.
