Galaxy S4 Mini

Pink and purple available now, orange due December 6

UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has announced that it'll sell the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini in three exclusive colors — orange, pink and purple. The brightly-colored Minis can be had for £379.95 SIM-free, as well as being available for free on 24-month contracts starting at £21 per month from Talkmobile or Vodafone. Carphone Warehouse is also selling the S4 Mini on-contract with EE, O2, T-Mobile and Orange.

Besides the fresh coat of paint, this is the same Galaxy S4 Mini we reviewed over the summer, powered by a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, with a 4.3-inch qHD display, an 8-megapixel rear camera and 4G LTE connectivity. It's not the most capable "mini" phone out there, but it's a decent all-rounder all the same.

The Galaxy S4 Mini is available from Carphone Warehouse now in purple and pink, in addition to the standard white and black; orange is expected to follow by Dec. 6.
