Display

The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini uses a 4.3" Super AMOLED screen of qHD resolution (960 x 540 pixels). The pixel density clocks in at 256 ppi, which is quite good, particularly when you consider the matrix used is not of the Pentile variety.
Instead it uses a layout similar to that of the Galaxy Note II with three subpixels per pixel, where the blue sub-pixel is twice as large as the red and green ones. That's a clever way to prolong the life of the screen, without sacrificing anything in terms of sharpness.
Of course, you can find sharper 720p screens in these parts of the market now, but you'll need to live without the benefits of the AMOLED technology.


The Galaxy S4 mini qHD Super AMOLED screen

All things considered, the Galaxy S4 mini display offers above average image quality for a midrange device. Colors a punchy, blacks are as deep as AMOLED gets them and the viewing angles are extremely wide.

Overall looks better than the Galaxy S2 and better than the Galaxy S3 Mini.

The specs are excellent for the price and it even sports 4G LTE.

The Galaxy S4 Mini is for people who can't spend a lot of money but want a fast and efficient phone that can do 99% of what the Galaxy S4 can do.

The Galaxy S4 Mini has very much the same display as the Galaxy Note 2 so those who have beef with PenTile don't have to worry about it on the Galaxy S4 Mini.

Pretty sure it's already been released. I don't see any carriers here packing it, though (which is a shame), so you'd have to buy it unlocked by the looks of it. ~$500, at Negri Electronics
