Galaxy S 4 Mini: launch date proposed

Just yesterday we were thinking about the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Mini, after seeing the Android flirt with going official, popping its head out on a Samsung site briefly before being swept back under the rug. It seemed like the GS4 Mini was just aching to launch, and all we needed to do was learn when. Today we might just get that answer, with a source telling The Wall Street Journal that the Mini should be seeing its launch at Samsung’s June 20 event.

That would be the London Samsung Premiere event we shared news of with you yesterday morning. At the time, all we knew is that it would feature both Galaxy and ATIV models, but didn’t have a firm sense of specifically which devices would be featured.

The WSJ describes the GS4 Mini as “one of the several new products the company plans to launch at the event,” making us wonder if we won’t also get the scoop on models like the GS4 Active and GS4 Zoom on June 20 as well, rather than with the separate late May launch that’s been rumored (and considering how we’re fast running out of May).
