Just about a couple of days after Samsung announced it is hosting an even in London on June 20, rumors about the possible devices to get lunched in the event have also gained momentum. Firstly, the mini variant of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 is in the news yet again and this time with a more detailed set of features which is spotted in its leaked AnTuTu benchmark as noticed by a German website allaboutsamsung.de.

To begin with, the screen shots of the benchmark for Galaxy S 4 mini GT-I9195 shows that it might carry the same processor as seen in Samsung’s newly launched Mega 6.3. This indicated that just like its bigger brother the Galaxy S 4 mini might also come in two variants one with the Snapdragon 400 dual-core Krait 200 chipset ticking at 1.7GHz and another with Samsung’s own Exynos 5 dual-core Cortex-A15 chipset with 1.6GHz clock speed, as rumored earlier.

Also as seen in the pictures, the Galaxy S 4 mini will come with qHD (540×960) display and offer a pixel density of 240ppi, which according to gsmarena could also be somewhat dodgy as it does not match the pixel per inch density count (256ppi) usually seen in a 4.3-inch display. This apart, the results highlight that the smartphone will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, come with Adreno 305 along with the Qualcomm S4 processor, and offer 1.5GB of RAM. The internal storage available for use is listed as 5GB, so the phone is most likely to feature an 8GB of internal memory, along with an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2.1MP front-facing camera, confirming earlier reports.
According to the other report, the Galaxy S 4 Active will be a rugged version of the flagship with water and dust resistance. It will be equipped with a 5-inch Super AMOLED Full HD display, and will carry Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 600 with Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB RAM.
Other features in the phone include an 8-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus and flash, a front facing 1.9-megapixel front camera, a 16GB of internal storage and up to 64GB of external storage using a microSD. There will also be support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, infrared, and a 2,600mAh battery, and will be able to work on 3G as well as LTE networks.
The Galaxy S 4 Zoom, on the other hand, is expected carry a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED (540X960) qHD display, Android Jelly Bean, a dual-core processor with a clock speed of 1.6GHz. It will boast a 16-megapixel primary snapper with up to 10X zoom, and a 1.9-megapixel front camera. There will be 8GB of internal storage and 64GB of external using a microSD, and support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, and a 1,900mAh battery.
After Samsung accidentally uploaded the Galaxy S 4 mini on its website, the company is most likely to unveil it at this event on June 20. We wonder if the event would rather be dedicated to the S 4 series of products with the Active and the Zoom also getting launched alongside. Samsung will also showcase some ATIV devices running on Windows at the event.
