Does anyone know the differences between these 2 models of the S4 Mini?

As in the past, any "T" model variant of a Samsung phone meant it had different broadband hardware meant exclusively for Telstra in Australia. You could still use the phone on 2G with other providers sim cards, but no more than 2G. Now however I wonder if things have changed based on the following specs?

But on their own website, it states the following...


2G GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
3G HSPA+ (850/900/1900/2100 MHz)
4G LTE Cat 3 800/850/900/1800/2100/2600 MHz (Telstra, Vodafone, Open variants only)


Does that mean this phone will work on all broadbrand frequencies?

Or is the "T" model still only tied to Telstra's network?

I asked a similar question not long ago in relation to rooting, but haven't had any answers yet.
Still, I might be able to help a bit: the 9195T definitely works on Vodafone's 3G network. I can't validate 4G because I'm on prepaid where 4G is not available. But the network type is HSPA:11 which is a 3G.

So, as much as the T seems to be Telstra-capable model, its 3G definitely works on Vodafone. Maybe its 4G won't.

Hopefully it helps a bit ~

[edit] oh wait, I already told you the same thing on the other forums >_<
Maybe it helps someone else then!

I've got GT-i9195L which stands for "Latin".
Samfirware publishes ROMs for Colombia and Puerto Rico only.

The only ROMs I see listed for GT-i9195T are for Australia.

Maybe there's a hint about what the T stands for.

I've looked into the specs on the samsung site. I was interested in the 2100mah Battery of the GT-i9195T and found out, that it is about 2mm thicker than the GT-i9195.
Wich would explain the bigger battery. Only thing left to find out is, where to get the battery + back cover. Because people who bought the GT-i9195T should have the possibility to buy the original battery for their device like we have with the GT-i9195.

Yes - GGM works fine using the stuff from on wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Serranoltexx_Info and instructions/links from wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_serranoltexx.

Just finished it, took a while to do it all (only my second CGM device) but all seems fine and seems to work ok. (I did backup to external sdcard just in case, but haven't needed it yet - touch wood.)

PS i told you that i9195t has s3 battery... practically is too big for i9195 standard layout. Not 100% sure but we can ask to our friends upstairs

Hi! Thanks for you info!!!

We have a lot on envy for your special i9195T...

do you have Telstra big battery edition? the 2100mah one?

Cause we are asking ourselves:

1) it is definetely an S3 battery?

2) where you can find cover, and normal i9195 cover fit or not on your phone ( without battery )

3) cyanogenmod goes well? and recognize your full battery?


Thank you dr pixie!

No it's not, I've just checked with international i9300. S4 mini battery is thinner and longer. S3 battery is thicker and shorter. Corners of the battery doesn't fit in the S4 mini housing (other gouging near the contacts ). I wasn't able to power up the phone.
