Last Updated: Aug 01, 2013
The recently released Samsung Galaxy S4 mini will apparently arrive in three new colours. These include the usually thematically named Scarlet Dawn, Bronze Autumn and Blue Iceberg, which basically means red, brown and blue. Check out the pics of the mini in all three colours below. Unfortunately, there isn't any mention when these colours will be available but the official announcement should be soon.

In a posting for their credit card promotions, Hong Leong Bank Malaysia had the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 listed at discounted prices. What was more interesting was that it also listed the retail price for both, with the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini going for RM1499 while the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 went for a retail price of RM1099.

Samsung's oversized phablets continue to grow with the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3. Thankfully, their prices have also been revealed as vendors have started selling the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 in India at INR24900 (RM1364). The Samsung Galaxy 6.3 has been priced at INR31490 (RM1725). The price isn't entirely unexpected as both phablets only have midrange specs and should feature just a bit higher than the Samsung Galaxy Grand.

Those waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 could start saving for the tablet a little earlier as the price seems to have been accidentally revealed already. Listed recently by Adorama, a New York retailer, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 was listed as $199 (RM600). Other specs available during the listing include the fact that it was a white device, had 8GB of internal storage, a 7-inch 1024 x 600 display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. It also had a 3 MP rear camera with a 1.3MP front camera along with a 4000mAh battery. This listing has since been taken down so we can't give you a reference link, however, there is no reason that the price may change. However, don't expect a direct currency conversion as even the $199 priced Google Nexus 7 tablet got priced around RM1000 when it came here in Malaysia.

While there have been plenty of rumours about the Samsung Galaxy S4 / S IV Mini going about, we finally have confirmation that it will actually be produced. From Lee Keon Hyok, Senior Vice President at Samsung Electronics who talked to BusinessWeek recently, the quote goes like this, “the Galaxy S 4 doesn’t come out until late April. It’s fast, has a big, bright screen, and will probably be another huge hit for Samsung, as will the S4 mini that will go on sale soon after”.

Topping off our earlier news on the Galaxy S4 Mini are several new rumors including the fact that it may come in 4 different versions and that it will be using a new Samsung Exynos Chipset. For the first rumour about versions, this one seems more than likely as eagle-eyed Twitter user st7761 found the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini's I9190 model number on the Samsung Support page. Alongside this model number he also found three other I919X devices. While these links don't actually bring you to anywhere, based on the previous model numbering it is surmised that the I9192 will be the dual SIM version while the I9195 is the LTE version. The I9198 is to be the China-only version. Official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to be around June or July this year.
