Leaked images confirm that the Galaxy S4 Mini, the cute and official younger sibling to the flagship Galaxy S4 (which has about a dozen variants now), is headed for US carrier Verizon Wireless. The device name and model number for this variant is SCH-i435, similar to Verizon's branding for all of their phones. The Galaxy S4 Mini packs support for Verizon's 4G network (cheers), but sadly, we know nothing about the price and launch date of the device. Our guesses put it at $99 with a two-year contract, and a launch date not too far away, considering the leaked device looks like the final piece that is ready for some real world action.
