Smaller Galaxy S4 shown with render, GT-i9195 model number
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini may go on sale in the not-so-distant future, following reports that it was spotted on the Samsung website. A section dedicated to Samsung Apps for the UK showed an image of the smartphone, along with the model number GT-i9195, for a brief period before being pulled from view by the manufacturer.
While the listing on the UK Samsung Apps page, as seen by Redmond Pie, indicates that the manufacturer is still creating the device, it does not provide any other details in terms of specifications for the phone. Since it is listed in Samsung's website, this could mean that an official reveal of the smaller companion to the Galaxy S4 is due to take place shortly.
Earlier rumors suggest the Galaxy S4 Mini as having a patterned metal back, while inside it is said to have a dual-core Exynos 5-series processor with at least two Cortex-A15 cores running at 1.6GHz, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, and a qHD resolution.
