Just like the S4 and S5, the mini version gets the IP67 certification as well
Earlier this week we were able to catch up with the details of the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini version and from what we know the phone is certainly going to disappoint. Just like its bigger brother, the S5 mini is here to make an impression and it started off by getting the IP67 certification for water and dust. Samsung New Zealand confirmed this news on Friday and it was announced on the company’s own website. You can also expect to find some warranty related details on the site and as it appears, the warranty is excluded if the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is submerged in water for 30 minutes or more. There is nothing different here since the Galaxy S5 and S4 both get the same warranty exclusions and they both feature the IP67 certification.
It is pretty much clear now as to why the S5 mini is getting the same feature. The IP67 certification covers devices submerged in 1 meter (3.2 feet) for up to 30 minutes and this aligns perfectly with the idea of having the bite sized version certified as well. There have been no other official announcements for the S5 mini and all we have had so far comes from the rumors. It is going to have a 4.5 inch display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. The phone will be powered by quad-core Snapdragon 400 and also packs inside an impressive for its size 1.5GB of RAM. The phone will come with the Android 4.4 pre-installed and the impressive 16 GB storage is paired with an impressive camera setup which includes an 8 MP back camera and a 2 MP front facing shooter.
