Samsung quietly releases the Galaxy S4 mini plus smartphone

The Korean tech company Samsung has quietly updated its Galaxy S4 line with the addition of an improved version of the Galaxy S4 mini smartphone. The novelty is called Galaxy S4 mini plus and comes with a single new feature, believe it or not.

Most of the tech specs of the new Galaxy S4 mini plus remain unchanged when compared to the Galaxy S4 mini. The newcomer carries the GT-I9195I code name and has the same 4.3-inch display that works at 960 x 540 pixels, the same 1.5 GB of RAM and everything else that you can see in the Galaxy S4 mini. The processor is the only component that has been updated – the Galaxy S4 mini plus comes with a Snapdragon 410 chip, instead of the Snapdragon 400 in the Galaxy S4 mini. The OS is also old – the Galaxy S4 mini plus runs Android 4.4 KitKat instead of Lollipop.

The new Galaxy S4 mini plus will sell for EUR 240, which is a rather high price for this old model. This leaves us wondering why Samsung decided to release this smartphone and who will buy it in the end.
