After lifting the lid on its Galaxy S4 smartphone earlier this month, Samsung is reportedly already working on a mini edition of the handset.

Initially reported by GSMArena, the rumours indicate the South Korean firm is readying four variants of the Galaxy S4 mini, going as far as listing model numbers for the potential devices.

A Korean-based Twitter user posted a screenshot of Samsung's support page to the social-networking site, which named the four devices as GT-I9190, GT-I9192, GT-I9195 and GT-I9198.

Whilst the I9192 is thought to be a dual-SIM version of the handset, the i9195 is believed to be LTE enabled and intended solely for Chinese markets.

Presumptions over the device's features are made over the last digit of each model number, which Samsung has previously been found to be consistent with.

Spec-wise, the Galaxy S4 mini is believed to boast a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, whilst running Android's 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

Whilst Samsung has yet to confirm the existence of such a device, it is highly likely given the firm's decision to release a scaled down of the Galaxy S3 – the S3 mini – last year.

Based on the firm's previous timetable, it is estimated that the Galaxy S4 mini would be made available towards June or July.
