Well lookie here, Sprint fans — it appears as though we might have our first live glimpse of the upcoming Instinct Mini from Samsung. Originating on a Sprint forum, no details have been provided just yet as user phonetec dangles the pics in front of forum members, wondering simply, “anyone else seen this ???” The answer of course, is no. It certainly looks a bit more, err, mini than the current Instinct and the rounded edges leave no question that this is indeed a different handset. As far as we know, the Instinct Mini is still slated for release on April 19th so the timing is right for some leaked pics to begin making the rounds. We’ll keep an eye on this one and in the meantime, hit the jump for a couple more shots.

Thanks, REV!
