Samsung launches a Galaxy S4 Mini variant for users still stuck in 2013

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Plus.

If you’re looking for a Galaxy S4 with no significant difference, other than having a better processor, look no further. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Plus is now available in European countries.

The S4 Mini Plus uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chip with a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and an Adreno 306 GPU. The original S4 Mini uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400. Beyond the processor, the new 2015 S4 Mini variant shares identical specification details with its 2013 sibling.

Features are similar if not identical to the 2013 version.

Other identical specs include the 8GB on-board storage with MicroSD slot for more space for files, the 4.3-inch display with Super AMOLED touchscreen at 540 x 960 pixels (256 ppi) and the 1,900mAh battery capacity. The new variant runs a later version of Android (4.4, as opposed to the original’s Android 4.2 OS).

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Plus is available in some European countries, including Germany and Austria, retailing at €239 (S$360). While’s it’s not exactly groundbreaking, it’s perfect for those who love the old S4 Mini, for their own reasons. We’re trying to find out if it will be available here (as unlikely as it sounds), and if Samsung has decided to lean more towards Mini or Plus.
