Last year’s Galaxy S4 mini was something of a disappointment to the tech world, especially because HTC released a better mini device around the same time. Samsung’s apparently having another go this year with the Galaxy S5 mini, and it’s looking to improve on some of the faults of the S4 mini. SamMobile got their hands on the the leaked specs for the S5 mini, and they go like this:
- 4.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display
- Snapdragon processor (likely the quad-core Snapdragon 400)
- 1.5GB RAM
- 8-megapixel rear camera
- 2-megapixel front-facing camera
- 16GB storage
- 2,100mAh battery
- Android 4.4 KitKat
- IR blaster
SamMobile expects the Galaxy S5 mini to be water-resistant, just like its big brother, but it’s unknown if the Galaxy S5′s numerous sensors will be included as well. No hard pricing or availability information is available yet, but some rumors have pegged the S5 mini for a June release. We’re happy to see that the S5 mini’s spec sheet isn’t quite as disappointing this year, and including Samsung’s decision to replace last year’s qHD screen with a 720p display.
