In Short

Announced on July 1, 2014, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini is the latest miniature Samsung flagship, downsizing the physical size, specifications and price of the full-blown Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S5 Mini comes in the same four colors as the original — black, white, gold and blue — with IP67-rated water and dust resistance, and a design to its big brother. It's got a 4.5-inch 720p display, 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, and it's powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 2,100mAh battery. Around the back there's an 8-megapixel rear camera, and for all your selfie needs the GS5 Mini also incorporates a 2.1-megapixel front facing camera.

The device will launch globally starting in late July 2014.
