Samsung Galaxy S5 has created a lot of buzz by releasing its most awaited flagship device Samsung Galaxy S5. The device hosts a lot of features including the Heart beat sensor, Finger print scanner, Ultra power saving mode, Water resistant design and a lot more that separates it from the rest of the SmartPhones. With the plethora of features, it has attracted a lot of smartphone lovers. After its release there has been rumors on the mini variant of the device, but nothing credible has been found from the tipsters. But now there’s a hint of the Samsung S5 Mini (SM-G800F) with some pretty unbelievable features.
An anonymous tipster has leaked some images of this alleged device as well as its complete specification sheet. And according to the leak, it looks like the Galaxy S5 Mini exactly resembles its elder sibling featuring a perforated back design for excellent grip, the device comes with a rounded edges but slightly smaller than the Galaxy S5. The device comes with a handy 4.5-inch screen which is normal for the mini-tagged devices from Samsung and sports a 720p Super AMOLED display. The device sports a 8 MP rear camera which supports Full HD recording and a 2.1 MP front camera that could suffice the needs of the selfie lovers.
Coming the hardware that backs up this device, the Galaxy S5 mini houses an unspecified Exynos 3 Quad SoC which is clocked at 1.4 GHz, The device is equipped with the Mali-400 MP4 GPU with a clock speed of 450 MHz could give a smooth performance to meet the graphical needs of the user. The device is backed with a 1.5 gigs of RAM which is definitely good for a mini device. On the storage front, the device provides 16 GB of internal storage, which can further be expanded with the microSD support. (Extension capacity not yet known, it is supposedly upto 64 GB or 128 GB, if we’re lucky)
The surprising thing we came over in the leak was that Samsung retained some of the special features that are present in its flagship device Galaxy S5. The device sports the fingerprint scanner and the heart rate sensor which is quite amazing. Now that there are reports that the fingerprint scanner of the Galaxy S5 is been hacked with some tricks, hope that Samsung fixed this in the S5 mini version. The heart rate monitor is not of much use on daily basis, but the inclusion of these two devices in the S5 mini would definitely add value to the device.
One thing that is not sure from the leaks is whether the device posses a IP67 certified water-proof design. It can be observed from the leaked images that the device has a rubber gasket attached to the inside of the back cover, which we believe is for water resistance but there is no flap cover on the USB port which deviates from the original design of the Galaxy S5. The device does come with the latest KitKat 4.4.2 on it and also the latest Magazine UX interface topping it. There’s no word on battery capacity in the leaks
Samsung retained many features from the Galaxy S5 like the Ultra Power Saving Mode for smartly saving your battery, Private Mode and Kids Mode for security concerns and many more. This brings out the immediate question – What’s going to be the pricing of Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini? Sadly, there is no News on either the release date or the pricing of the device yet. So we have to wait for further information.
