Samsung confirms the existence of what could be a Galaxy S5 mini: the SM-G800F
Since we had both a Galaxy S3 mini and a Galaxy S4 mini, it makes perfect sense for us to also expect to see a Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, right? Right. Not long ago, we heard that the S5 mini’s model number’s supposed to be SM-G800. Well, Samsung Finland is now hosting a support page for an SM-G800F on its official website, thus confirming the handset’s existence. Unfortunately, for the moment Samsung isn’t revealing anything about the SM-G800, so we can’t be certain that this is indeed the S5 mini.

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.

It’s said that Samsung is planning to announce its Galaxy S5 mini in June.

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?
