No one really needs justification anymore for multiple variants of Samsung’s flagships. The company has a knack for doing that and customers actually look forward to them. We know that its only a matter of time before a Galaxy S5 mini hits the market. It has already been rumored quite a few times but this might be the very first time that Samsung Galaxy S5 mini leaked pictures have appeared online. Obviously the pictures come from an unofficial source so you might want to take this with a grain of salt.
Samsung has already released two additional variants of the Galaxy S5, namely the Galaxy S5 Active and the Galaxy K Zoom. It did exactly the same last year with the Galaxy S4 so none of this is new to customers and fans. So it makes perfect sense that the Galaxy S5 mini is next in line.
Looking at these Samsung Galaxy S5 mini leaked pictures one can see that there are design similarities between this and its high-end sibling. Rounded corners are visible along with the perforated back. It appears that features like heart rate sensor and fingerprint sensor have both been kept.
About its specifications, rumor has it that the Galaxy S5 mini runs an unannounced 1.4GHz Exynos 3 quadcore processor with Mali-400 MP4 GPU and 1.5GB of RAM. 4.5-inch 720p display, 16GB of onboard storage, 8 megapixel rear and 2.1 megapixel rear cameras and microSD card slot are all on board.
The source also claims that Galaxy S5’s software features like Ultra Power Saving Mode, Kids Mode and Private Mode will also make their way to the mini variant apart from Android 4.4.2 KitKat with TouchWiz slapped on top. No word as yet about pricing or availability.
