Canadian wireless carrier Fido has made a new Android-based smartphone from Samsung available on its network, none other than the Galaxy S4 mini.The mobile phone was launched at the operator with a price tag of $100 (€74) attached to it with the signing of a two-year contract agreement.
Users interested in the purchase of this device will also be able to grab it on a pre-pay basis, though they will have to pay $450 (€335) for it. As MobileSyrup notes, the phone is more expensive than at TELUS.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is available at Fido in two color flavors, namely Black and White, and can be seen on this page on the wireless carrier’s website.
The mobile phone was made official earlier this year as the smaller successor of Galaxy S4. Unfortunately, the phone also comes with downgraded specs, which make it less appealing when compared to its flagship brother.
Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy S4 mini with a 4.3-inch touchscreen display that can deliver a qHD resolution, as well as with a 1.7GHz dual-core processor inside.
Furthermore, the smartphone comes with 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes, and 4G LTE connectivity inside.
The smartphone also features an 8-megapixel camera on the back, front camera for video calling, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity capabilities, GPS receiver, and the like.
“The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is ideal for anyone looking for a device that’s ultra-portable and ultra-impressive,” Fido notes on its website.
“It’s fuelled by a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, dazzles with a brilliant 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display and houses two cameras, including an 8 MP powerhouse. In short, it’s a phone everyone should try on for size.”
Samsung Galaxy S4 mini arrives on the market with Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system loaded on top. However, it should receive an update to a newer flavor of the platform in the not too distant future.
