Galaxy S4 mini won’t have a mini price tag

Samsung recently announced a scaled-down version of its Galaxy S4 smartphone. The Galaxy S4 mini is equipped with a 4.3-inch qHD display, a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel rear camera. The handset also includes 8GB of internal storage, 1.5GB of RAM, a microSD slot, a 1,900 mAh battery and the company’s TouchWiz user interface atop Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. A Samsung spokesperson previously said that availability and pricing was “still up in the air,” however a variety of European retailers have begun to list the device online. Unlocked Mobiles will begin selling a SIM-free version of the Galaxy S4 mini on June 29th for £365, roughly $560, while Handtec is offering the phone for £390, roughly $600. Interestingly enough, Phones4U has priced the device £20 more than last year’s better-equipped Galaxy S III, listing the unlocked Galaxy S4 mini for £420, or roughly $646.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Emerging Markets Analysis

The Galaxy S4 mini could thwart Apple’s emerging market ambitions

The Galaxy S4 mini could thwart Apple’s emerging market ambitions

We’ve known for a while that Apple has been planning a bigger push into emerging markets such as China and India with a lower-cost iPhone. But as Strategy Analytics writes on its official blog, Apple’s rival Samsung has already gotten out ahead of the game by releasing its own cheaper Galaxy S4 mini. What’s more, Strategy Analytics thinks that Samsung plans on “taking the fight to Apple, challenging it across additional price tiers” and that the Galaxy S4 mini will undercut the older iPhone 4S’s price by around 5%. Taken together, it shows how much Apple has to gain by finally coming to terms with China Mobile on a deal to sell the iPhone unless it wants to see Samsung dominate smartphone sales on the world’s largest carrier.
