Samsung Galaxy S5 MiniThe Samsung Galaxy S5 is certainly one of the top three or four premium smartphone handsets on the market right now, but not everyone wants a mobile device that large. Well Samsung are certainly fond of releasing a new handset every other week and now they’ve unveiled their new Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini. It has to be said, with its 4.5-inch display, there’s certainly nothing mini about it. With the next iPhone 6 expected to feature two larger handset sizes, both bigger than the existing 4-inch iPhone 5s, there’s no doubt that smartphones are getting larger. Even what passes for a smaller handset is now what was once considered large a couple of years ago.

The new Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini will include the familiar perforated chassis design on its rear shell along with IP67 certification, meaning that it will offer protection against dust and water. You can also expect a fingerprint scanner and a heart-rate monitor. The smartphone will also allow users to connect to the Samsung Gear smartwatch.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini will make use of a Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 (326 pixels per inch). The processor operates at a clock speed of 1.4GHz and will be quad-core but we won’t know the chipset or manufacturer.  Other specs are a little paired down such as the RAM, which is just 1.5GB of RAM along with 16GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD card slot.

The rear camera will be an 8-megapixel shooter, while the front camera will provide just 2.1-megapixels.  The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat.

The device will launch initially in Russia this month for a price yet to be announced and will hit other markets later in the year. You can expect it to come in four colour options, Charcoal Black, Copper Gold, Shimmery White and Electric Blue.
