Is this the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini (SM-G800F)?

Samsung is known to release a plethora of variants of its flagship devices, especially the Galaxy S series, simply because it wants a product in every category and price range. After the launch of the Galaxy S5, the rumour mill shifted its focus towards the usual Zoom, Active and Mini variants. Samsung made the Galaxy K Zoom, formally known as Galaxy S5 Zoom, official on April 29, and launched the Galaxy S5 Active today on AT&T. The only variant left to be introduced is the Galaxy S5 Mini. There have been numerous rumours surrounding the Galaxy S5 Mini, but never something authentic has shown up. However, today, a few pictures and complete specifications of the upcoming Galaxy S5 Mini was sent to SamMobile by an anonymous tipster.

According to the pictures, it looks like the Galaxy S5 Mini sports exactly the same design as the Galaxy S5, with the same rounded corners and perforated pattern on the back panel. It also looks like that Samsung has not compromised on core features and has kept the fingerprint scanner and the heart-rate sensor, both which are unique to the Galaxy S5. There’s a rubber gasket attached to the inside of the back cover, which hints towards the device being water-resistant. However, unlike the Galaxy S5, there is no flap covering the USB port, so we are not sure if the device is indeed IP67 certified.

Spec-wise, the Galaxy S5 Mini is equipped with a 4.5-inch 720p (720×1280) Super AMOLED display, an unannounced Exynos 3 Quad (Exynos 3470) SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, Mali-400 MP4 GPU with a clock speed of 450MHz, 1.5GB RAM, 8 Megapixel primary camera sensor with 1080p Full HD video recording and 2.1 Megapixel front facing camera. The device features 16GB of internal storage, which can easily be expanded via a MicroSD card.

On the software side of things, the device runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Samsung’s latest Magazine UX TouchWiz UI interface layer on top of it. Tipster also mentions that all the Galaxy S5’s software features are present on the Mini, including: Ultra Power Saving Mode, Private Mode, Kids Mode etc..

GOOD NO MORE SNAPDRAGON 400 ! ( if this
rumor is to be true),i like the rumor that it comes
with a new exynos chipset,i like the ram too very
very much :1.5GB ram,i’m dissapointed by the
rumored 4.5″ screen the 4.8″ would have been
totally perfect.
Well i hope the s5 mini comes with the new
exynos chipset,the 1.5GB of ram,16 internal
obviously and also a lightweight weight 120 g(s4 mini tell em)…..don’t you think gtone339 ?

Seems legit this time. I reckon that it’s IP67 rated, can’t see the USB flap properly though!!

What can I say? A pathetic attempt at imitating Sony’s Z1 Compact. 1) Weak SoC – what is it compared to Snapdragon 800 with it’s Adreno 330? Mali 400 was in Samsung Galaxy S2, yes, TWO, i9100.. Just a bit underclocked from this version. And the low clocked processor may be good on battery life (tho Z1 Compact holds 2 days quite easily with even quite intensive use), but it surely won’t mean anything good for performance. 2) 1,5 GB of RAM doesn’t help either. It should be 2 GB at this time and age. 3) 8 Mpix camera? Again,… Read more »

Hey guys, I actually was a BIG Samsung fan in the S2 days. Then it slowly declined, and right now my reception of their products is mixed, let’s say lukewarm. Used Apple in the meantime too, but I’m not convinced to iOS after all, even with all the optimization the system is too locked. Samsung seems to be just delicately pushing the specs higher, but it’s all cosmetic. For a choice in smaller (<5") smartphone with Android onboard and good specs, there is one good choice (Sony Z1 Compact) + some Chinese models. That's it. Funnily enough, I got long… Read more »

I think you and Samsung aren’t a match for each other. So you need to look for some other brands 🙂 Apple itself is under pressure to release phones with bigger size, so I don’t think Samsung is prepared to go back and release a high end, small screen phone.
Anyway,compared to the minis of s3 & S4, s5 mini appears to be better spec wise.
