Samsung announces Galaxy S5 Mini
Galaxy S5 Mini’s images and specs leaked last month and they were spot on. Samsung announced its shrunken down Galaxy S5 today, let us see what we get.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini retains the design language of its bigger sibling. We’re still looking at the same soft-touch back along with a slew of sensors and IP67 certification. S5 Mini also includes a fingerprint scanner and a heart rate monitor on the back of the device, that hasn’t changed either. Ultra Power Saving Mode (UPSM) is also a part of the package.
What did change? Well, a lot actually. Galaxy S5 Mini comes with a 4.5″ Super AMOLED 720p screen (326ppi), a Snapdragon 400 1.4GHz quad-core chip and 1.5GB of RAM. On the back you’ll find a 8MP camera while there’s 2.1MP shooter on the front. The device has 16GB of internal storage which you can expand up to 64GB via microSD card. Everything will be powered by a removable 2100mAh battery.
Galaxy S5 Mini should see its global release mid-July while the price of the device should be around €479 ($650). Anyone out there plans to buy this thing by any chance?
