For those who like the looks and advanced features of Samsung Galaxy S5 and are looking for a similar but smaller and budget friendly smart phone, Galaxy S5 mini is the device for them.
The new Galaxy S5 is here now. Investigating the release date for S5 Mini, its price, and specs, Samsung now has confirmed and also announced the device. In the UK, it’s now available for pre-ordering. If one is looking for a higher-spec version of S5, there is Galaxy S5 Prime. For a rugged version, S5 Active is a good option.
Typically, Samsung launches the mini version of the flagship phone at any time a little later than the actual launch. It has been doing that well and is expected to do that in future. Here is something you should know about Galaxy S5 Mini.
The release date for S5 Mini is known to be during ‘early-July’ and the launch would be in Russia. The global launch would follow that. This is similar to the launch of Galaxy Z. The release date in the UK is known to be 7th August. Samsung would be selling the Mini at £389.95, which is just a little higher than the Mini Version of S4, which was launched at around £380 on a SIM-free basis. Vendors like Mobile Fun have listed Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini at a pre-order price of £369 and another vendor Clove has it for £379.
After weeks of leaked information over the Internet, Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini is quite similar to what we expect for the specifications related to the hardware. The Mini will be loaded with a 4.5 inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 720p. This is substantially smaller than the 5.1-inch screen of the full size Galaxy S5 and also an improvement over the qHD display found in S4 Mini.
S4 Mini will come with installed Android Kit Kat and will be powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor. The phone is expected to have 1.5 GB of RAM and an internal storage space of 16 GB. There is also a micro SD card slot and the storage is expandable up to 64 GB. As far as the camera is concerned, Samsung has offered an 8Mp rear camera and a cool 2Mp front camera. The battery comes with a capacity of 2100mAh and the phone is also loaded with an IR blaster. Overall, the specs are similar to S4 Mini, but this phone comes with a waterproof design, which is also dust free.
The 4G model of the phone is expected to come with NFC. And like its big brother, the S5, Mini also comes with a fingerprint reader and heart-rate monitor. With these cool features, S5 Mini is expected to sell in big numbers. For people, who do not want a big phone like S5, S5 Mini will be a good choice.
