Carphone Warehouse will be stocking the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini in orange, pink and purple variants in time for Christmas. At other UK retailers, the Galaxy S4 mini is only available in black and white, making Carphone Warehouse the go-to for customers who want to add a little colour to their lives.

The pink and purple Galaxy S4 Mini smartphones are now in stock at the high street retailer. The orange version won't ship to customers until 9 December, but can be ordered now.

Like the black and white versions, the Galaxy S4 Mini is available at Carphone Warehouse for free on two-year contract. All the big name carriers in the UK are represented: Vodafone, EE, O2, Orange, T-Mobile, and TalkMobile. The handset can also be purchased outright and SIM-free for £379.95.
