There’s no shortage of rumors starring the soon to be unveiled Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, but one of the more intriguing and believable to hit the web of late seems to set most of the phone’s specs in stone.
Apparently, the S4 Mini will pack a… wait for it… dual-core 1.6 GHz Exynos 5210 processor, which is pretty much covered in mystery for now. Obviously, the thing will be part of the new Exynos 5 family of CPUs designed and manufactured by Samsung, but for the moment we don’t know if it’ll be zippier or slower than the Exynos 5250 inside the Nexus 10.
Chances are it’s going to be a lot faster than the NovaThor U8420 chip powering the S3 Mini though, especially that the LTE-enabled S4 Mini will reportedly come with 2 gigs of RAM. Meanwhile, the 3G-only model will have the standard amount of memory (1 GB) for upper mid-rangers these days.
Both versions are to come with 32 GB of on-board storage, which is a little surprising given we were expecting the GS4 Mini to be fairly budget-conscious. The spec sheet’s remaining gaps are filled with features we’ve already heard word about – 4.3-inch qHD AMOLED screen, 8 MP camera, 2,100 mAh battery and Android 4.1 or 4.2 Jelly Bean. Isn’t it about time Samsung lifted the veil off this thing already?
