Samsung Galaxy S 5 mini is official


Samsung took the wraps off of the Galaxy S 5 mini earlier today, and as expected, the specs are toned down, not the software.

It includes a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED 720p (1280 x 720) display with Gorilla Glass 3, a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, microSD for up to an additional 64 GB of storage, 8 MP rear camera, 2.1 MP front-facing camera, 2,100 mAh battery, and Android 4.4. Just like it’s bigger brother, it sports I67 certification.


Fans of the Galaxy S 5’s software interface will be happy to know that the mini has the same features like Ultra Power Saving Mode, a heart rate monitor, fingerprint scanner, and connectivity with the latest Samsung wearable devices.

It will be available in mid-July (starting in Russia) and there will be four color options: Charcoal Black, Shimmery White, Electric Blue and Copper Gold. Pricing wasn’t announced, but expect it to be around £399 ($684).

Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.
