The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is the latest installment of the Galaxy mobile phone family, and it’s just what you’d expect – a smaller, spec’d down version of Samsung’s Galaxy S4.

Though a 4.3-inch mobile phone screen wouldn’t have been considered “mini” a couple years ago, Samsung isn’t off the mark with this branding, considering its Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 2 models offer 5-inch and 5.5-inch screens, respectively.

The qHD Super AMOLED screen features a lower resolution than the Galaxy S4′s HD display and the processor is only a dual-core rather than the S4′s quad-core. But the mini does offer the same Android Jellybean (4.2) OS with many of the same apps and features like the S Translator language application, S Travel turn by turn directions and the S Voice speech operated search assistant.

The rear and front cameras offer 8 and 1.9 megapixel resolutions, and the phone will be available in White Frost and Black Mist colors. The availability of 4G LTE and 3G HSPA+ variants of the Galaxy S4 mini will be determined by market.

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S4 mini at the Samsung Premiere 2013 GALAXY & ATIV London event on Thursday, June 20. Wondering when you can get one here in the U.S.? No announcement has been made regarding price, regional or carrier availability.
