Samsung Galaxy S5 mini allegedly pictured in the wild, might feature a new Exynos 3 Quad processor

SamMobile received said photos from an anonymous source. If they really present the S5 mini, then the handset looks very similar to the regular (and larger) S5, complete with a heart rate sensor below its rear camera, and a fingerprint scanner on the front. According to SamMobile, this Galaxy S5 mini - model number SM-G800F - doesn’t have a Snapdragon 400 processor (as previously rumored), instead coming with an unannounced 1.4GHz Exynos 3 Quad (Exynos 3470) chipset. That aside, the handset should feature a 4.5-inch 720p display, Android 4.4 KitKat, 8MP rear camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage space.
The alleged Galaxy S5 mini doesn’t seem to have a flap cover over its USB port, so it may not be water resistant. As always, we'll bring more details on the matter as soon as we get them.
- 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)

I doubt they would use a Mali 400 on a 2014 S series phone and it must be waterproof since it has the gasket

Looks like a really good mini. If they price it right, this phone might be a good pick. It's just that Exynos 3. Shouldn't be a Exynos 4, heck even Exynos 5 in 2014 (maybe a slower version of 5420 for example)?

Maybe it'll use Cortex A12. A12 is supposed to be available in the second half of 2014, it's a little bit over 80% more powerful than Cortex A7 (while still being less powerful than A15/A7 HMP configurations), and it's power efficient enough that big.Little isn't needed. That would be great for a mid range phone if it's paired with a good GPU like Mali-T624.

I'd warn others how they suck at support. Until now there is no 4.4 update on my s4 mini. My s4 mini froze few times in 2 weeks after purchase with not much in it. It lags too. Get the full version if u can or get other mini from other company. I should have gotten lg g2 mini if it were available.

4.3-4.5 Inch S5 Mini with actual S5 specs like Octa CPU and 16MPX Camera= Instant hit This S2/S3 hybrid with 2012 specs and just like 2 or 3 2014 features= Flop Get the Z1 Compact if you want real flagship features and specs in a mini ;) Samdump should take note to that and release a mini with actual flagship specs!
