Samsung Galaxy S5 mini specs and photos leak

The Samsung Galaxy S5 mini specs and photos have been leaked online, giving us a good idea of its features ahead of launch.

We’ve heard quite a bit about the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini to date, but this is the most extensive leak we’ve seen so far.

The images and full specs sheet were sent anonymously to Sammobile, showing that the smaller version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship will feature a strikingly similar design, even down to that perforated back plate.

From the images, you can clearly see the S5 mini features the same rear-mounted heart rate monitor and there’s the fingerprint scanner in the home button too.

Inside the back panel is the same rubber gasket as the S5, which is a strong indication the S5 mini could be water-resistant. However, the lack of flaps covering the USB port does suggest it may not feature the IP67 water- and dust-resistant certification.

According to the source, the Galaxy S5 mini comes with a 4.5-inch 720 x 1280p HD Super AMOLED display running Android 4.4.2 KitKat. What’s interesting is that the S5 mini could run the new Magazine UX interface of tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 rather than the standard Touchwiz UI.

The S5 mini may run on an as yet unannounced 1.4GHz Exynos 3470 processor with 1.5GB.

In the rear is an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p full HD video recording, coupled with a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera.

You’ll apparently get 16GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD card.

The S5 mini will also apparently offer all of the new software features introduced with the Galaxy S5, including the battery enhancing Ultra Power Saving Mode, Kids Mode and Private Mode.
