We never doubted Samsung’s little phone that could, i.e. the Galaxy S4 mini, was to land stateside at some point, but it sure was surprising to see the Koreans hold off the American rollout for so long.
After all, it’s been three whole months since the mid-end 4.3-incher started making its way to European and Asian countries. Luckily, it’s just been confirmed that it won’t be long now. And as a nifty bonus, you’ll have some tough choices to make, as four, count’em four American wireless carriers will be putting it up for sale next month.
There’s Verizon, Sprint and AT&T, so three of the usual suspects, but also US Cellular, who’s becoming more and more of a key player in the carrier landscape. Oddly, T-Mobile seems to be left out of the launch party, though hopefully Magenta will be fashionably late, not missing entirely.
With no exact ETAs announced or pricing details, all we can do at this point is wait, speculate and hope for the best. Like possibly maybe seeing the S4 mini go for as less as $50 with contracts.
That’s a long shot though and you likely won’t be able to score it this November for a penny under 100 bucks. Then again, Christmas is coming and we know very well what happens with gadget prices – they plummet.
