A new Samsung handset, identified as Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Plus, has been spotted. GSMarena claimed to have find sellers of the phone in many countries including Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Romania and Bulgaria. The Galaxy S4 Mini Plus, which is also sold as Galaxy S4 Value Edition in some markets, is priced at €239 (Rs 16,580) and is being offered for as low as €190 or Rs 13,174 .
The new Galaxy S4 Mini Plus (GT-I9195I) is an upgraded version of the 2013 model, Galaxy S4 Mini. Aspects such as screen size, battery, camera, RAM and storage capacity remain the same.
The so called Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Plus has a 4.3 inch Super Amoled touchscreen with high definition resolution. This handset runs on the 1.2 Snapdragon 410 quad core processor, Adreno 306 GPU and 1.5GB of RAM. Strangely, it is said to be based on the Android KitKat operating system.
The key difference between the two is that the new variant houses a 64-bit class 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC (System on Chip) with Adreno 306 graphics engine, whereas the old model packs a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 series processor with Adreno 305 GPU.
It is a single SIM handset with key features like 4G, 3G, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and GPS with GLONASS. We are not sure about its global availability, so stay tuned for more information.
