Now that Samsung’s priced flagship is out in the open, rumor mongers are speculating that a “Mini” version is in the works and it may feature the company’s upcoming System-on-Chip dubbed as Exynos 5210.
The rumored Exynos 5210 is believed to be third SoC under the Exynos 5 lineup and is said to be based on the ARM big.LITTLE architecture. However, unlike its 8-core sibling, the chip will pack a pair of dual-core processors (2x A7 and 2x A15, perhaps) that will make up the quad-core set up.
As for the handset, the rumor suggests that it’ll come in two variant; single and dual-SIM. The former is said to have the Exynos 5210 while the other is believed to have a more basic dual-core processor. Other specs of the SGS4 Mini include a 4.3-inch qHD display that will play host to the TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 on top of Android 4.2.2 operating system. Furthermore, we expect the handset’s structure to follow the SGS4’s design cue.
