Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini captured in beautiful HD images

by: Edgar CervantesJune 10, 2014


The mobile industry has a plethora of unnaturally large devices, creating a whole new category in the future of smartphones. Manufacturers have started creating “Mini” smartphones, meant to replicate the looks and capabilities of their larger counterparts, only in a smaller body. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini has been one of the most rumored miniature devices, and today’s images are here to clear out your doubts about it.

It’s rather unusual to see a device leak in high resolution images, forcing us to take a closer look at these Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini (you may also know it as the Galaxy S5 Dx) shots. Literally looking like a small clone of the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 Mini could be one device to keep an eye on.


It is interesting to see the Galaxy S5 Mini from all its angles and even its internals, but even more interesting is the other bit of news we are getting with this leak. The anonymous informant has provided us with screenshots of the device running through Antutu benchmark and CPU-Z, hence giving us a healthy list of specs.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini rumored specs

  • 4.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED Display
  • 1.4 GHz Samsung Exynos 3 Quad (Exynos 3470) processor
  • 1.5GB of RAM
  • 16 GB of internal storage
  • 8 MP/2.1 MP cameras
  • Fingerprint reader and heart rate sensor
  • LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, IR Blaster, NFC, GPS with A-GPS support and GLONASS, MicroUSB port

If the rumored details and leaked images are to be considered real, Samsung is doing a great job at keeping their Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S5 Mini as similar as possible. Extra features and good specs all seem to be included.

I was surprised to see the fingerprint reader and heart rate sensor on board, for example. Not to mention, IP67 certification is very welcomed, making this neat smartphone water and dust resistant.

Pricing and launch information continue to be a mystery, as are all the rumored details, really. Take it all with a grain of salt, as these rumors can sometimes prove to be wrong.

    This “Mini” thing really needs to stop. Compact is where it’s at! I’m pretty sure starting next year other OEM’s will do the same.
    Only thing is that the Z1 Compact has been out for a while, depending on Samsung the pricing could be the same.

      The “mini” thing definitely isn’t stopping any time soon. The S3 mini and S4 mini were very popular devices, mostly due to their price tags, which were quite significantly lower than their big brothers’.

    So much better than the Nexus 5 leaks. So much blur.

      just before I looked at the receipt ov $8130 , I
      didn’t believe that my sister woz like actualy bringing in money part-time from

    I understand using a lower resolution screen and different CPU to handle the smaller battery, but I still don’t get why these mini devices have to take a huge hit in all the specs. If they left the RAM alone and either underclocked the CPU or used a slightly less powerful processor, I would be OK with this. Mini should not mean a severely shipped down version of the flagship. It should be as close as possible.

    These should be called “light” versions, not mini.

      Maybe they dont want it to affect sales of the GS5 which brings in bigger margins for samsung.

      • abqnm

        And that is a terrible strategy. They could easily give the mini almost-flagship specs and knock maybe $50 off from the full size one and still make a killing.

  • Gaurav Arora

    Dat RAM though…

  • paul marx siena

    same specs
    smaller version
    smaller price? xD

  • Jayfeather787

    The Nexus 5 will probably be cheaper than this garbage, and whoever wants to buy this… don’t. Choose Nexus.
