It does seem to be a trend for flagship devices to arrive with a smaller version of an existing handset, and the Samsung Galaxy S5 is no different. While we have seen leaked images of the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini in the past alongside being seen on Samsung Finland’s website, here is yet another set that pits it beside the full sized sibling. From what we have heard so far about the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, it will most probably arrive with a 4.5” display, having a range of variants to suit possibly different markets, and have dual SIM capability to boot. Retaining the IP67 certification that is found on its full sized model, the Galaxy S5 mini will arrive with an integrated fingerprint scanner in the home button as well as a heart rate monitor that is located on the back of the smartphone.
Two weeks ago, SamMobile gave you folks a first glimpse at Samsung’s upcoming miniature variant of its flagship device, the Galaxy S5 Mini, after receiving a few pictures and complete specifications from an anonymous tipster. Today, the same anonymous tipster has sent in screenshots of Antutu benchmark and CPU-Z, confirming the specifications we were provided earlier, and a heap of new pictures of the device, some alongside the Galaxy S5 for size comparison. Antutu benchmark and CPU-Z confirm that the device is indeed equipped with an unannounced Samsung Exynos 3 Quad (Exynos 3470) SoC with a clock speed of 1.4GHz, Quad-core Mali-400 MP4 GPU clocked at 450MHz, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage and 8 megapixel main camera shooter and 2.1 megapixel front facing camera, both capable of shooting Full HD 1080p video.
