Images show slight size difference between full-size Galaxy S4 and Mini
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available in an extra shade of blue, according to a Japanese carrier's promotional material. The images from DoCoMo arrive at the same time as other photographs that claim to show the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, something which has been suggested as launching at some point this month.
The DoCoMo documents received by Japanese blog Ameblo shows three different colors for the Galaxy S4. The standard black and white versions, titled Black Mist and White Frost respectively, are joined by a third color called Blue Arctic. Though the image is rather lacking in quality, it does appear to be the same shade as the Pebble Blue that the Galaxy S III launched with, and could lead towards the Galaxy S4 shipping in a range of colors, such as the brown, gray, and red versions of its predecessor.
The Galaxy S4 Mini has been shown off in photographs by Weibo user PunkPanda, writes Engadget. The new images show the Mini living up to its name by being slightly smaller than its full-sized variant. With a patterned metal back, the S4 Mini appears to be following the lead of the Galaxy S III Mini in capitalizing on the name, but it is unknown how far below the Galaxy S4 specifications the Mini will be. Rumors suggest it will have a 4.3-inch display, a dual-core 1.6GHz processor, and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
