Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Images Revealed
Anyone looking forward to the more handy version of the Galaxy S5 can now have a pretty solid idea of what to expect thanks to the latest leaked images of the device.
The images were distributed by an anonymous leakster through Sammobile. We can tell quite a few things from the pictures.
The first of these is the most apparent; Samsung has retained the perforated back cover of its flagship smartphone as well as the rounded corners. And towards the top of the back cover are the camera and the heart rate sensor.
Potential owners of the S5 Mini will be delighted to learn that this feature has been retained in a cheaper, smaller version of the S5.
Also retained, though not so easy to spot from the photo is the fingerprint scanner that was incorporated into the single home button at the bottom of the screen.
More easy to make out from the images is the rubber gasket that lines the inside of the back cover. This is indicative of water resistant capability in the S5 Mini. But with flaps over the USB ports being equally conspicuous in their absence, there are question marks over whether this phone is IP67 certified.
The 4.5-inch AMOLED HD screen is also seen in the pictures. According to the specs sheet it has a 720p resolution which is a significant step down from the 1080p of the original S5.
However, most of the Mini’s new owners won’t mind the trade-off for a more pocket-friendly phone.
Other features you can expect if you plan on ordering the Mini include an 8 MP camera accompanied by a 2.1 MP front-facing camera.
The back camera is capable of 1080p full HD video which is not bad at all. As for the processor, the device will come equipped with a 1.4 GHz Exynos 3 Quad that boasts a clock speed of 450MHz. Aiding it will be 1.5 GB of RAM.
Speaking of memory, the internal storage capacity of the S5 Mini weighs in at 16 GB but you can extend this by making use of the microSD slot the phone comes with. on the software front, you can expect the same Android 4.4.2 platform that powers the latest smartphones in the Mini. It is also comes with Samsung’s latest TouchWiz UI interface.
Among other key software features are an Ultra power saving mode and a Kids mode that will keep your children safe while using your phone to browse the Internet.
