A new image, alleged to be that of Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, has surfaced online, raising speculations about the imminent launch of the upcoming smartphone.

Rumours of the next generation Galaxy smartphone in the making had emerged soon after the South Korean company launched Galaxy S4 in March. Around the same time, a set of images said to be of Galaxy S4 Mini leaked online. The latest set of images spied by Weibo user PunkPanda correlates well with the previous leaks.

According to the earlier reports, the miniature version of Galaxy S4 is speculated to sport a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display with a pixel density of 256ppi. Other speculated features of the device include Android 4.2.2 jelly Bean, 1.6GHz dual-core processor, Samsung's new TouchWiz interface Nature UX 2.0, dual-SIM capability, 4G LTE and HSPA+.

The rumoured screen size of Samsung's upcoming smartphone could come as a disappointment for many as Samsung is again downsizing the phone's specifications in accordance with the display size. The company continues to remain silent about its next release.

The smaller version of Galaxy S4 is expected to be launched in July. A recent leaked report suggested that the black and white variants of the Mini will make its debut around the same time. There are also reports saying the smartphone will make its way to retail stores by the end of May.

Samsung is also rumoured to launch Galaxy S4 Activ and Galaxy S4 Zoom. While the camera-centric Galaxy S4 Zoom is said to be released early June, the rugged Galaxy S4 Activ is speculated for a release in July.
