Samsung confirms the existence of what could be a Galaxy S5 mini: the SM-G800F
posted by Florin T. / May 01, 2014, 5:50 PM
Anyhow, if previous rumors are to be believed, the S5 mini will feature a 4.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, 2MP front-facing camera, and an 8MP rear camera. Like the already-released 5.1-inch Galaxy S5, the mini version should be dust- and water-resistant.
As a reminder, HTC is reportedly also preparing the release of a mini One M8 - which seems to have specs similar to what Samsung’s S5 mini will offer. What’s more, it appears that we’ll have an LG G3 mini, too. And all three will be larger than Apple’s current flagship smartphone. These are strange times we’re living in, eh?

I think the big companies are starting to realize that they can't just put crappy specs in a body that resembles its larger counterpart. These specs seem pretty reasonable and acceptable...

Isn't the dual core they used last year better than this? I don't get why no one uses the S4 Pro with the Adreno 320

For 2012, these specs are pretty good. For 2014, it is just Samsung being cheap and interpreting "mini" along the lines of "PC jr".

It may not be waterproof but there was a case where the One M8 survived a dip in water. I wouldn't be surprised if the Mini could do the same. Then there's always that aftermarket solution to coat the phone in a water resistant or waterproof film. It would be nice if manufacturers would put almost flagship specs in mini versions of their flagships. I could live with 720p in a 4.5 - 4.7" display but RAM, processor and camera shouldn't be spec'd that much lower.

I hope sammy will come out with some compact version.. maintain the spec but reduce the size.. 5.1 inch is a little bit bulky though.. just sayin. Currenly imho z1 is still the best compact smartphone in the market.
