A double helping of Samsung-flavoured newsage for y’all here. Firstly, while the Samsung Galaxy S4 launch is all too fresh in our minds (I’ll never forget Jeremy Maxwell tap dancing), the inevitable Samsung Galaxy S4 mini has already been spotted (that's it on your left).
We’re also hearing that the Samsung Galaxy Fonblet (Worst. Name. Ever) might weigh in at a monstrous 6.3in – not the 5.8in previously rumoured.
Dealing with the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini first, a series of pics has been leaked to Sam Mobile, where it’s pictured alongside its bigger brothers - among other poses.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini spec sheet is said to include a 4.3in Super AMOLED qHD display (256 PPI), 1.6GHz dual-core processor and Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.2). Oh, and it's expected to launch in June/July.
Interesting that 4.3in is now considered “mini”. Back in 2011, many of the flagships (including the Samsung Galaxy S2) were 4.3in – or less. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a 5in display, just 0.3in smaller than the original Galaxy Note, a device that was dimissed by many as too big, but defiantly went on to sell millions.
Speaking of large devices, we should – according to Japanese language site ameblo.jp – expect the Samsung Galaxy Fonblet’s display to measure 6.3in diagonally.
We’ll take that with a pinch of salt for now, as the Samsung Galaxy Fonblet is thought to be a variant of the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.8, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has been tipped to measure 6.3in.
