Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini to hit retail in mid-July

Just like a new Galaxy S flagship is a given each year, so is a new iteration of the current Galaxy S’ mini variant, a device that Samsung always hopes to sell not based on its feature list, but on the fact that it carries the name of the company’s multimillion-selling flagship. This year will be no different – the Galaxy S5 Mini has been leaked numerous times in the past few weeks, with our exclusive post revealing its photos and specs leaving nothing to the imagination. Today, we have received some information about the release date of the Galaxy S5 mini – according to our source, the device will go up for sale in markets worldwide in mid-July.

Now, that isn’t exactly the most concrete piece of information, but it’s all we have at the moment. It’s not exactly a very surprising revelation either, as a mid-July release falls in line with the Galaxy S4 Mini’s launch last year. Thankfully, the S5 Mini won’t be as mid-range as the Galaxy S4 Mini was, and will actually offer some of the features seen on the flagship it is spun off from, including a fingerprint scanner, heart rate sensor, and IP67 water and dust resistance.

The Galaxy S5 Mini will also feature a 4.5-inch 720p display (a considerable upgrade from the disappointing qHD display of the Galaxy S4 Mini), an unannounced Samsung Exynos 3 Quad (Exynos 3470) SoC with a clock speed of 1.4GHz, 1.5GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, and the usual bevy of connectivity features including LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, IR Blaster, NFC, and GPS. On the software front, the Galaxy S5 Mini runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Samsung’s latest TouchWiz UX and comes with all the software features found on its bigger brother, including Ultra Power Saving Mode, Private Mode, and Kids Mode.
