Phones4U has stated they will be offering pre-orders on the Galaxy S4 Mini starting on July 1 and smaller retailers Unlocked Mobiles and Handtec will start this weekend in the UK.
The Galaxy S4 Mini will start at £420, a little higher than the Galaxy S3, currently priced at £400 on Phones4U. This could be a hard sell for retailers, especially for people wanting a larger screen experience. The Galaxy S4 Mini may be a newer device, but with a dual-core processor and 720p qHD AMOLED display it is a step down from the S3 in performance.
However, as more carriers and retailers get their hands on the device, we suspect prices will see a little decrease. EE, the joint venture between T-Mobile and Orange, will offer the Galaxy S4 Mini at the same price but with a free Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 on pre-order.
