Samsung still hasn't announced its Galaxy S5 Mini, but given the latest leaks of pictures and full specs of the device we have a hard time denying its existence at this point. Coming courtesy of a tipster to SamMobile, we have some high-resolution looks at a purported Galaxy S5 Mini, alongside a laundry list of specs sheets that confirm what we had heard from earlier leaks.
The pictures show off a phone that looks distinctly like the full-sized Galaxy S5, with a soft touch back panel, chrome accents, fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor. The tipster indicates that the device is indeed IP67 dust- and water-resistant, though there's no flap over the USB port like its counterpart (we certainly wish this design decision was made on the original). On the internals, we're looking at a 4.5-inch 720p display, an Exynos 3 Quad (3470) 1.4GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and an 8MP camera. Miniature size, miniaturized specs.
The leak also shows that the Galaxy S5 Mini is running Android 4.4.2 and has all of the same software features as the original, such as Ultra Power Saving Mode. You can head to the source link below and see even more pictures of the unreleased S5 Mini next to the original.
Does the idea of a 4.5-inch version of the Galaxy S5 get you excited to try it for yourself? Or are the lower specs enough to turn you away? Let us know in the comments.
