Galaxy S5 Mini leaks reveal waterproofing and new Exynos CPU

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini has been leaked once more, and this time the info tells us more about the phone’s CPU and its style of waterproofing.

Photos released by Sam Mobile suggest the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini will feature new waterproofing advances.

You get the same IP67 certification as the Samsung Galaxy S5, and the same sort of rubber-sealed plastic backplate, but there is no longer a flap to cover the microUSB port on the bottom.

This suggests that the Galaxy S5 Mini may have a specially-treated port that is waterproof by itself, getting rid of the most annoying part of owning a waterproof phone – having to regularly re-seal the charging socket.

The leaked information also suggests the Galaxy S5 Mini will have a new Exynos CPU that we have not seen before, the Exynos 3470. It’s a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.4GHz, using the Mali-400 MP4 GPU, the same type seen in the Galaxy S3.

This particular information was leaked as part of benchmark result screenshots.

Other rumoured specs of the Galaxy S5 Mini include a 4.5-inch 720p screen, 8-megapixel main camera, 1.5GB RAM and Android 4.4.2 software. Just like last year, it’s a slightly cut-down version of the Samsung flagship. 

The leak also suggests the Galaxy S5 Mini will have fingerprint scanning software similar to that of the Galaxy S5, which features a fingerprint sensor under the front physical button.

Samsung is rumoured to be launching other Android devices on 12 June, but reports suggest it will be Tablet S devices, not phones, shown off on that date.

We’ll be back with more on the Galaxy S5 Mini as it is announced, but for now here are some of the leaked photos from Sam Mobile.
