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.
