Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Leaks in High-Res Photos, Full Specs Revealed

The mini version of Samsung Galaxy S5 has yet to be announced, but there are plenty of leaks suggesting that the smartphone will be quite decent in terms of hardware, as well as design.

Obviously, if you didn’t like the look of Galaxy S5, you won’t like the mini version either, as Samsung did not change much. You don’t have to take our word for it as the first high-resolution pictures showing the Galaxy S5 mini, alongside the original model, have just leaked online. This is not the first time a picture of the Galaxy S5 mini pops up online, but these are high-quality, so Samsung fans will have a better idea of what the smartphone really looks like. From what we can see, this is a prototype that’s very close to the final version that’s supposed to hit shelves this year, so you might as well think of it as the real deal. The pictures have been published by SamMobile and show that Samsung has kept the same design for both Galaxy S5 versions, with a few exceptions. For example, the mini version of Galaxy S5 does not feature a rubber stripe over the USB port like the original model. But that does not mean that it’s not IP67 certified. On the contrary, it looks like Samsung has managed to solve the issue with water infiltrating through the USB port inside the phone and has removed the rubber stripe covering it.

Hardware-wise, the specs of the Galaxy S5 mini are well known thanks to a series of benchmarks that have leaked as well. However, we recommend our readers to take the info with a grain of salt until Samsung confirms these specs. But in order to offer you an idea of what the Galaxy S5 mini might look like on the inside, here are some of the details that have recently appeared on AnTuTu benchmark. So, the Galaxy S5 mini will sport a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos 3 Quad, a Mali-400 MP4 graphics processing unit and 1.5GB of RAM. The smartphone will come with 16GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 128GB via microSD card slot.

Although the name would suggest that this is a smaller version of the Galaxy S5, it’s not really too small. The phone is said to come with a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720p) resolution and features Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating. It also comes packed with fingerprint scanner, heart rate sensor, LTE and 3G connectivity, along with Bluetooth, IR Blaster, NFC (Near Field Communication) and GPS with A-GPS support. Samsung Galaxy S5 mini will ship with Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system out of the box, and it is likely to receive an upgrade to KitKat 4.4.3 soon after launch.
