Samsung Galaxy S5 mini to have 4.47 inch screen according to Zauba

Samsung Galaxy S5 mini to have 4.47 inch screen according to Zauba
One of our loyal PhoneArena readers recently found an interesting story about the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, and promptly brought it to our attention. As you probably know by now, this is a site that tracks imports and exports from certain companies, to and from India. We've used Zauba before to see what devices Samsung is testing in the country. Occasionally, we are able to grab a useful nugget of information.

Our tipster sent us an image of the Zauba site showing three separate listings for the SM-G800. Earlier this month, we learned from a Samsung Finland support page, that the SM-G800F is the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini for Finland (hence, the "F" designation at the end of the model number). The Zauba listing reveals that the actual screen size for the bite-size version of Samsung's latest flagship phone, will be 4.47 inches.

Rounding off the screen size gives us a 4.5 inch glass, confirming specs that were leaked earlier. The Super AMOLED screen is expected to feature 720 x 1280 resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. Back and front snappers of 8MP and 2MP are included, respectively, and it is all powered by a 2000mAh battery. Not only is Android 4.4 supposedly pre-installed, but junior is expected to be just as water and dust resistant as pop, with a similar IP67 certification.


Thanks for the tip, Guido!

The Nexus 4 uses a Snapdragon S4 Pro quad core chipset, the most powerful of 2012.

there are many different variants of the SD 400, most of which have a less powerful CPU than the N4, and all of which have a MUCH LESS powerful adreno 305 GPU.

Not everyone wants a large phone. There is a market for a compact premium phone. I would pay the same price for a mini as an S5 if it matched up in every spec except screen and chassis size. I think its wrong to call it the S5 mini if it is only an S5 in name only and I think 4.5 is too big for something called a mini. I think they hit a sweet spot with the S4 and S4 mini. The S4 chassis was smaller than the S3 but had a bigger screen and the S4 mini I believe was 4.3 with a slim chassis as well. Now the S5 and possibly the S5 mini are bigger all around. They should have left them where they were at. If you want bigger, buy the Note.

You would pay the same price for mini and flagship doesnt mean that everyone would do it. Some people want to pay less amd get more. This phone is for budget users who dont want to spend a lot and still boast about owning a galaxy s5! Bdw.. I own a note :)

I agree with tntwit here. The mini or compact version of a flagship should be only different in size. If you want a budget friendly one, get a different model altogether. There is the Ace, Core, old flagship, etc... For Sony there is the M, E, and other letters different to "Z"....

Agreed. They should give it a different name. But from their point of view.. giving a phone similar name to its flagship wil help in marketing and also REGULAR people will value ot more.! And you know what.. this is true.! Same name helps..maybe not in US or metro cities aroung the globe but in smaller towns many people buy phone just by names and when any ignorant person would see a original s5 version being sold for cheap price .. he would definitely pick it up over other better models with different name.! And after all its bussiness what sammy wants and they are getting it.! :)

The point is, if you want a premium phone in a compact size, Samsung doesn't make a phone for you. Their premium phone only comes in one size and they keep making it bigger. Honestly, I don't care if my phone has the latest, greatest, but one area that Samsung keeps the mini held back is the camera. Really? If I want their best camera, I have to buy a bigger phone. My wife has complained about the size of her Samsung Fascinate from day one and even more with her S3. When I bought the Droid X a few years back, I really wanted the Droid Incredible because of its size, but the sales guy convinced me the X was better (probably right). There is a market for a good quality small phone, but it doesn't appear Samsung wants to serve that market since their Mini continues to be watered down. Maybe Sony will have success with their offering.

Well.. no.. but its..its.. yeah ok you too have a valid point but maybe their definition of mini is not same as yours hence the clash in opinions.. but whatever.. hope they'll make a phone for people like you - Compact and powerful.! Cheers.!

Just call this Samsung S5 cheap. This is no mini at all. Its just cheaper. Sony Z compact knows how to do a mini version right.

Aren't those almost the same specs as the Moto G? How much will cost this? Around $400?
