Purported Galaxy S5 mini specs appear: 4.8" HD display, Snapdragon 400, and an 8 MP camera

So far we've been hearing that the Galaxy S5 mini will flaunt a 4.5" display, as was confirmed by an SM-G800F handset listing in the Zauba import database, too. Last year's S4 mini has a 4.3" screen, so a bump is warranted, though a 4.5" panel might still be considered small for some, despite the "mini" moniker. The SM-G800H is actually shown to have a 4.8" panel in the GFX database, however, turning the current S5 mini speculation on its head in the most important aspect.
The rest of the specs jibe with what has been leaked so far - a 720x1280 pixels display resolution, a 1.4 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 16 GB of internal memory, an 8 MP rear camera, capable of 1080p video recording, and a 2 MP front-facing shooter. The Android version is listed as the latest Android 4.2.2 KitKat. All in all, this "mini" is shaping to be a decent midranger, and with the Galaxy S5 logo slapped on it, Samsung might have a veritable contender on its hands, depending on the launch price. What do you think?
- Display 4.5" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 3 Quad, Quad-core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2100 mAh(10h 3G talk time)

That's certainly 'mini'. Does this make the M7 a mini?

HEY! How dare you say that! S3 has an 1.4 Ghz Exynos 4 Quad CPU which is better than snapdragon 400. Sent by a proud owner of the GT-i19300.

dont cry, even though the snapdragon 400 is a little better and more efficient than exynos 4, the difference is minimal. antutu bench result of s3 and s5 mini will be very close. but since this is bearing the S5 moniker, samsung will overprice this and sell it more than what galaxy grand 2 is doing now even if the latter is a better phone at 5.25" real estate...

Samsung make the things come worse and launch a a phone very worse than the Galaxy S4 Mini. Why a Snapdragon 400, Cortex A7? What stupidity is that? The S4 Mini has a Snapdragon 400 dual-core but at least it's a dual core Krait 300 which is the same architecture present in the Snapdragons 600, 800 and 801 which it's equivalent, more or less, to a Cortex A15 because has those instructions and has 3.39 DMIPS per MHz and a Cortex A7 has 1.9 DiMPS per MHz which is lightly less than what a Cortex A8 has, 2.0 DMIPS per MHz and a Cortex A8 it is for a long time, a outdated technology. In 2010 is that the phones had those architecture. A phone with those specs it's doomed to failure because nobody buys it. Even the S3 Mini has a better processor, a dual core Cortex A9. I don't understand this view of Samsung, it's a very strange view in fact. The S4 Mini, in specs, it's reportedly better than the S5 Mini.

S5 mini with A15 no matter if all features turned on on Touchwiz it will push it with not a sign of lag no matter what you throw at it it will glide fast Those A15s have immense power if not used with A7 cores but straight A15

a combatant for the Sony Xperia M2, hmmmn but the M2 will be priced way lower.... this might kill S3 sales + - and or boost Grand 2 sales.... but if you are stateside then the nexus's and moto's are still king... in asia this will get slaughtered by mediatek octacore phones...
