Is this the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini?

Is this the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini?

Rumors about a smaller variant of the Galaxy S5, presumably called the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, have been around since March. We think that we know its specs and model name already, and we'd not be surprised if the handset turns out to be water resistant, just like its bigger sibling. No images of the device in question, however, had been leaked... until today.

What you see here is presumed to be a picture of a picture of a Samsung Galaxy S5 mini. This seems to have been snapped from the company's UK web page. Being the curious individuals that we are, we tried punching in the URL into our browser, but to no avail – it sent us to the site's main page. The address may be no longer valid, or perhaps the picture has been taken by someone authorized to access it. 

So if the image of the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is indeed legitimate, then we should be expecting a device with no heart rate monitor as one can't be seen next to the LED flash. Color-wise, Samsung could be looking to add an orange and a green model to the roster. The black, blue, and white variants are visible on the page, but the gold model appears to be missing. Interestingly, a "Dx." suffix is also seen under the phone's name. Could this stand for "deluxe"?
 
Of course, as the case is with all rumors that we come across, the above information should be taken with a grain of salt. But will all the evidence that has piled up already, it appears that a Samsung Galaxy S5 mini could really be in the works.

"it really appears that a Samsung Galaxy S5 mini could really in the works." Um, of course it is in the works, that is not a question at all. You'd think tech writers would be aware of that given Samsung's mantra. But it looks like they're stopping naming these devices after the flagship, probably why the Galaxy S5 zoom is Galaxy K zoom and S5 mini is S5 Dx.

" You'd think tech writers would be aware of that given Samsung's mantra." It's a reporter's job to report, not guess.

If this is indeed the same of the new model, it seems Samsung has changed their naming system to be much shorter than it used to be... What used to be the S5 Mini Neo Deluxe is now just the S5 DX? Believe this when I see it for real :)

I think the "Dx" is a sad and disappointing face, people like to type "xD" because it looks and refers to laughing and also happy face, but this "Dx" looks kinda like a sad and disappointing face. Maybe the they're hinting us that the S5 Mini will be disappointing? I don't know, this just suddenly comes out of my head. xD

Looks pretty good for a mini flagship. I like how they're changing the S5 variants to different names...K Zoom instead of S5 Zoom, S5 Dx instead of S5 Mini...great! Hope they make this reasonably priced unlike the S4 Mini (and the HTC One Mini) which were rather pricey for Mini....being more expensive than S3 but with not better specs...

yeah and be priced at a whopping 800$ so no one would buy it. it reminds me of another failure an old company ( cherished by old people ) introduced #FailToSell #NumbersDontLie.

Zauba website SM- G800F Samsung model with a 4.47 inch screen was imported into India. It believed that the SM-G800F most likely could be the Galaxy S5 Mini.
