The Galaxy S5 is without a doubt one of the most popular smartphone handsets on the market today and following some trickles of information over the last few weeks of a mini version of the handset possibly making its way to market, it appears that the rumours could indeed be true, even though Samsung have not officially announced anything.
Whilst Samsung’s Finnish division slipped up with the publication of a support page for the handset, they are not the only division to confirm the rumours. A warranty document from the New Zealand team has revealed that the mini, which appears to run under the model name SM-G800F, will be IP67 certified. To you and I, this means that it will be water and dust resistant – a feature that is become more common on today’s handsets.
Other sources of information spout that the S5 Mini will feature a 4.5″ 720p display, a 1.6GHz quad core Snapdragon processor with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB of storage. Additionally a microSD card clot will support up to 32GB of extra storage, with an 8MP camera on the rear, a 1.5MP front facing camera and a 2,100mAh battery.
Unexpectedly though there is no word on pricing nor a release date just yet, however these mishaps from two of Samsung’s divisions lead us to believe that a launch date could be on the horizon, possibly ahead of the next iHandset.
