In a post at the 5Fans forum, Five announces a design change to the 32GB version of the iFive Mini 4: The “magnetic induction” sensor will not be included.

RAM and internal storage are unknown.
More will be known at its introduction. In the meantime, PadHz has a photo of what looks like a case for it.
