According to a source close to Sammobile the anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 mini will hit retail shelves around the middle of July. That’s not far from now and makes us wonder if Samsung will unveil its new mini with style and a whole event or merely announce it on its website.
We didn’t get any info about the Galaxy S5 mini price or market availability. What we do know is how the device looks and its main specs. It’s said to carry over the IP67 certification of its bigger brother, the Samsung Galaxy S5, along with the heart-rate monitor on the back, fingerprint scanner under the home button and the design.
The screen is said to be a 4.5″ Super AMOLED unit of 720p resolution, while the camera allegedly has an 8 MP sensor. 1.5 GB of RAM along with a yet unannounced Exynos 3 chipset with a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor running at 1.4 GHz and Mali-400 GPU take care of computing.
We really hope the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini not only looks but feels similar to its flagship Galaxy S5 counterpart – we really need minis that pack serious hardware under the hood.
