Announced on May 31, 2013 and released in July 2013, the S4 Mini is a mid-range model of its flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone and a successor to the Galaxy S III Mini. It has a similar hardware design and software features to its high-end counterpart.[1][5]

The S4 mini got the android 4.4.2 'Kitkat' update on June 2014, bringing some minor UI changes as seen on the Galaxy S4 and S4 Active.

When asked about whether the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini would get the Lollipop update on the 24 April 2015, the UK branch of the telecommunications operator 'Three' stated that it would not get the lollipop update, blaming on 'memory limitations'.[8] However the Irish branch of 'Three' stated later on the very same day that the S4 Mini would indeed get the lollipop update and that it should start rolling out in the coming weeks.[9] Samsung UK and US career Sprint confirmed that the S4 mini will get the Lollipop update.[10][11]
