Samsung Galaxy S4 mini launched in India for Rs. 27,990

Samsung has launched the Galaxy S4 mini smartphone in the India for Rs. 27,990.

Although the smartphone is positioned as the compact version of company’s flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S4, it’s essentially a premium mid-range phone just based on the same design language.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini features a 4.3-inch qHD (540×960 pixels) Super AMOLED display, with a pixel density of 256ppi.

The smartphone is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor along with 1.5GB of RAM. It offers 8GB of internal storage of which 5GB is user accessible. The internal storage can be further expanded by up to 64GB with the help of a microSD card. The phone runs Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) with Samsung’s TouchWiz Nature UX layer on top.

The Galaxy S4 mini features an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.9-megapixel HD front facing camera. The camera of the phone also supports additional features like Sound&Shot. Apart from this, the images clicked through the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini are automatically gathered and saved according to the user’s timeline, geo-tagging information, or a specific event to create a photo album.

The S4 mini is powered by a 1,900mAh battery. Samsung will be offering the Galaxy S4 mini smartphone in two colour options – White Frost and Black Mist.

While the phone brings some of the premium software and hardware features of the Galaxy S4 including Group Play, S Translator and S Health, we’re not sure if the phone has been priced right. One can buy quad-core processor phones with bigger screens, such as the HTC One X, LG Optimus G and even Samsung’s own Galaxy SIII at around the same price point.
