The hardware and display have been designed for the people that are looking for a cheaper version of the Galaxy S4.
It is not as powerful as the original version of Galaxy S4, but the Mini is still a solid performer. It can operate 3G and even 4G LTE network depending on the countries where the smartphone operates and the optional of dual SIM. As a smaller version of the Galaxy S4, the Mini will be available in 8 GB internal memory with 2 GB of RAM for the LTE model.

The Galaxy S4 Mini is no different in terms of shape compared to the original version of the Galaxy S4. It has rounded corners and plastic with metallic accents cover the whole device, while the body itself is available in black mist and white frost color options. The difference is only in size. While the original S4 has 5.0 inch screen and 1080 x 1920 pixels, the S4 Mini has 4.3 inches and 540 x 960 pixels. Both of them have Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen displays and microSD memory card slots that can be extended up to 64 GB.
