Samsung is back again with its mini form of Galaxy S5 smartphone. Samsung has been off to a fantastic start with its Galaxy S5smartphone. The Galaxy S5 mini release date is up in the air, however, the smartphone is rumoured to be arriving in the second quarter which means we should see is before the end of June.
Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is being rumored to be water resistant. As expected, it will feature bumped-down specs from the S5, including a 4.5-inch 326 PPI display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core 1.6GHz processor, and an 8-megapixel camera. The S5 Mini is also expected to be missing the fingerprint scanner and the heart rate monitor that are featured on the S5. The Galaxy S5 mini is also said to include a fingerprint scanner and heart rate sensor like its larger sibling, along with IP67 water and dust resistance. The smartphone is running Android KitKat 4.4.2 with TouchWiz UXlayered on top.
Specifications for the Galaxy S5 mini include:
Processor: 1.4GHz Exynos 3 Quad
CPU: Quad-core Mali-400 MP4
Display: 4.5”, 720p
Storage: 16GB, microSD slot
Camera: 8MP rear, 2.1MP front
Wireless: LTE, 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE
Based on the performance sheet, the mini smartphone will feature a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and most surprisingly of all, a 4.8-inch 720p display.
To put the display size into perspective, the S4 mini featured a 4.3-inch screen and the full-sized Galaxy S5 display only stretches 5.1 inches. If the performance sheet is legitimate, the S5 mini will be a monstrous smartphone.
Another main factor that you should consider when you are analyzing the performance of a phone is the battery rating. Samsung Galaxy S5 mini comes with a battery rating of 2100 mAh and this is by no means bad. While you would expect a better rating, but the small display should ensure that the battery will last longer.
