AT&T has announced that it will begin carrying the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini on March 20. The Galaxy S5 mini is a smaller, mid-range version of last year’s Samsung flagship. It features a 4.5-inch 720p display, 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 1.5GB RAM, 16GB storage plus microSD card slot, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, fingerprint sensor, IP67 dust and water resistance, 2100mAh battery and Android 4.4.4 KitKat, with an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop coming soon.
Even though the new flagship Galaxy S6 only just launched, AT&T has decided to carry the Galaxy S5 mini, likely to give customers a new mid-range Samsung option. A Galaxy S6 mini hasn’t yet been announced and the Galaxy S4 mini is quite long in the tooth now, which would have prompted AT&T to offer the Galaxy S5 mini. It may be mid-range, but it carries extra weight since it shares the Galaxy S5 flagship name.
AT&T will sell the Galaxy S5 mini beginning March 20, for a price of $99.99 on a two-year contract or $428.99 without a contract. AT&T Next financing is also available.
DALLAS, March 16, 2015 – AT&T announced that it will carry the Samsung Galaxy S® 5 mini in its retail stores and on www.att.com starting March 20. AT&T currently offers the largest selection of Samsung devices.
