The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini will be using the Snapdragon 400 chip, the company has confirmed recently.

The official announcement for the smartphone mentioned a 1.7GHz dual-core CPU, but didn’t give any other specific details. Not that the type of CPU didn’t appear in benchmarks of the device, even before it was officially announced.

Well, Samsung has decided to make everything crystal clear, and gave Phone Arena details about the CPU the phone is using.

Two Snapdragon 400 chips are being used for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, depending on whether the respective device is the 4G LTE or 3G variant of the device. The 4G LTE version uses the MSM8930AP, while the 3G one has the MSM8230AP Pro in it, and both versions use Adreno 305 graphics.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini also has a 4.3-inch qHD display (960 x 540 pixels resolution), 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and runs Android 4.2.2 with Samsung’s own TouchWiz interface on top.

It also has an 8-megapixel main camera, as well as a 1.9-megapixel front-facing shooter. Some versions of the phone will offer NFC and dual SIM support. The battery of the device is a 1900mAh one.

    Yes. I like the smaller size. Don’t need the latest and greatest specs.

    S4 Mini is the only decent device that I’ve seen with the word “mini” in its name. Snapdragon 400 is faster than the old dual s4 in sgs3, right? And how about S400 vs s4 pro?
