Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini is Official!

They're on it. Another Samsung Galaxy S5 variant to fit another need! This time, it's a phone with a smaller screen for people who prefer it or have very small hands. Many people get fed up with the number of devices Samsung releases every year. But I am all for it. I know they look similar but that is what Samsung is aiming for, a family of phones with one for everybody. Want a brilliant camera phone? Galaxy K Zoom. Want a little rugged phone? S5 Active. A phone with specs of 2015? S5 LTE-A/Prime. This is what everything should be about: variety. If somebody likes the build quality of the M8 but wants a waterproof or a one with even an average camera, god help them. Anyways, we're here to discuss about the S5 Mini so, let's get started!
The S5 Mini is a 4.5" phone with looks very similar to the S5

The device features the same design with the textured back as the Galaxy S5, in a smaller form factor. Samsung is also bringing features that were exclusive to the Galaxy S5, like IP67 certification, Ultra Power Saving Mode, a heart rate monitor and the fingerprint scanner.

The Galaxy S5 mini features much better hardware from the last two generations of mini variants, and comes with a 4.5-inch 720p screen which has a pixel density of 326 PPI. Under the hood, the device is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core CPU, and includes 1.5 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, microSD card slot up to 64 GB, 8 MP camera at the back with LED flash, 2.1 MP front camera, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, USB 2.0, A-GPS + GLONASS, IR blaster and a 2,100 mAh battery. The Galaxy S5 mini runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and comes with the latest version of Samsung's TouchWiz UX skin.

One of the major highlights of the device includes LTE Category 4 connectivity, which allows you to download at 150 Mbps. While pricing information for the handset isn't available, Samsung mentioned that the Galaxy S5 mini will be launching in Russia later this month, with other countries set to follow in due course of time. At launch, the device will be offered in four color versions: Charcoal Black, Shimmery White, Electric Blue and Copper Gold.
