If you like the look of the Samsung Galaxy S5 but want something a bit smaller and more budget friendly, then the Galaxy S5 mini could be just the smartphone for you. If you're looking for a higher-spec verison of the S5 there's also the Galaxy S5 Prime, and for a rugged version check out the S5 Active.
Traditionally, Samsung launches a mini version of its flagship device a little while after its launched so here's where we take a look at the possible Galaxy S5 mini release date, price and specs.
The Galaxy S5 mini release date is up in the air, however, the smartphone is rumoured to be arriving in the second quarter which means we should see is before the end of June.
Fitting in nicely with this, Samsung is holding its Galaxy Premiere event on 12 June in New York. The event is set to be mainly around new Galaxy Tab tablets but could also be where Samsung decides to unveil the S5 mini.
As usual we're speculating on the price for the Galaxy S5 mini for now. The Galaxy S4 mini came in at around £380 on a SIM-free basis and we expect the Galaxy S5 mini to hit this area too. Our money is on £399.
Whether they are correct or not, we cannot verify but SamMobile reports that the Galaxy S5 mini will feature a 4.5in Super AMOLED screen with a 720p resolution. That’s a reasonable amount smaller than the 5.1in screen found on the full-size Galaxy S5 and an improvement on the qHD resolution found on the Galaxy S4 mini.
The Galaxy S5 mini will come with Android 4.4 KitKat and be powered by one of Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors. Which chip is unclear but it's likely to be the Snapdragon 400, says SamMobile.
Samsung is reportedly packing the Galaxy S5 mini with 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an 8Mp rear camera, 2Mp front camera, an infrared transmitter and a 2100mAh battery. It's a similar spec to the Galaxy S4 mini but the phone is tipped to come with a dust- and waterproof design (IP67).
