Renowned Samsung fan-site SamMobile claims it has been handed the upcoming Galaxy S5 Mini smartphone's leaked specs. The alleged Samsung SM-G800's purported technical recipe sounds decent - 4.5-inch 720p SAMOLED display, quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, a rare 1.5GB RAM, 16GB storage memory, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front cam, and a 2100mAh battery.
In addition, the phone will run Android 4.4 KitKat and feature the Galaxy S5's IP67 certification, which means the device is completely protected against dust and good for staying at least 30 minutes under 1 meter of water. It seems the Galaxy S5's landmark heart-rate and fingerprint sensors aren't coming to the party, but maybe they'll become ubiquitous mid-range offerings some day. Or, maybe not.
Anyway, we'd like to point out that, so far, the only smartphones with the unusual 1.5GB of RAM by Samsung have been the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Grand 2 phablets, along with last year's Galaxy S4 Mini. Interestingly, the Grand 2's specs are an exact match with what SamMobile asserts to, with the exception of the display diagonal. So either we're being fooled, or Samsung is about to release a Galaxy Grand 2 Mini in M-sized Galaxy S5 clothing.
Regardless, the Galaxy S5 Mini's launch is expected to happen in June, an year after the Galaxy S4 Mini came to life. By then, we will surely know more about it.
