If you love the idea of the Samsung Galaxy S IV but want something smaller, cheaper and worse, listen up. Samsung just announced the Galaxy S IV Mini, which will launch at the Samsung Premiere event later this month in London. The S IV Mini has a 4.3” screen – about the same size as the Galaxy S III and about three-quarters of an inch smaller than the S IV. It has a Super AMOLED display, same as the S IV, but has barely over half the resolution of its big brother. The S IV Mini features a dual-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM and an 8 MP camera. It only has 8 GB of storage – only 5 of which are free after formatting – but offers expandable storage through a microSD card slot. If you were expecting a smaller version of the Galaxy S IV, this isn’t it: the only similarities are in the TouchWiz software it runs and its name.
