Hardware specs for Samsung's Galaxy S5 mini have been leaked

Samsung is expected to launch a mini version of is Galaxy S5 flagship in the near future. As was the case last year, however, the device doesn’t appear to actually offer high-end specs like the flagship Galaxy S5. While the company has yet to unveil the handset, SamMobile has already obtained hardware details for the Galaxy S5 mini. The phone is expected to have the same IP67 certification as the Galaxy S5, which would make it water- and dust-resistant, although that’s yet to be confirmed.

We exclusively confirmed that the Galaxy S5 mini would be launching after the Galaxy S5 (not that we needed that confirmation, given Samsung’s penchant for launching successors to both their successful and not-so-successful devices), and now we’ve got exclusive information on the S5 mini’s specs thanks to our insiders. Sporting model number SM-G800, the Galaxy S5 mini will feature a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution, an upgrade over the disappointing qHD resolution on the Galaxy S4 mini. It will run on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box like every device coming out after March, and will be powered by a Snapdragon processor – we weren’t told which chipset it would, though it will likely be a quad-core Snapdragon 400.
