Samsung has officially announced Galaxy S5 Mini, the mini variant of its new flagship Galaxy S5, powered by a 1.4 GHz Quad Core and latest Android 4.4 KitKat. Like other Galaxy Mini phones, this one two replicated the Galaxy S5 in terms of design and build, but the resemblance is only skin deep.
The Galaxy S5 comes with a 4.5 inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display which sounds fair considering the display size. The phone also supports optional dual SIM functionality, which hints towards a timely launch in Asian markets.
Chipset includes 1.4 GHz Quad core processor aided with 1.5 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. You can further add 64 GB of MicroSD storage. The Finger Print Scanner and Heart rate sensor, which were highlighted in Galaxy S5 have made their way to mini variant as well.
Imaging hardware includes an 8 MP primary camera with LED flash capable of recording full HD videos. A front 2.1 MP camera takes care of video chat and selfies. The IP67 certified Dust and water Resistant body weighs only 120 gram and is 9.9 mm thick.
Battery capacity is 2100 mAh and connectivity features include 4G LTE Cat.4 / 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS and NFC.
The S5 Mini sounds more impressive than S4 mini for sure. This time Samsung has provided with better display, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and better chipset, doing more justice to the flagship moniker as compared to S4 Mini. The handset will go on sale globally starting from Russia in July 2014.
