The phone is going to be dust and water resistant like the original S5
With a 4.5 inch screen, the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini stays within its limits and can rightly be called the ‘mini’ version. The phone was unveiled by Samsung while keeping a low profile and there wasn’t any hype about it. The surprising bit however is that the phone does not feature any high end specs but some still have their resemblance with the original S5.
Moving on to these features, the display is Super AMOLED screen of 720p resolution and the phone exactly measures 131.1 x 64.8 x 9.1 and weighs 120g. The mini version of the S4 on the other hand measures 124.6 x 61.3 x 8.9 mm and weighs 107g. We are also impressed to see the major bump in the pixel density which jumped from 256ppi to 326ppi. Like we mentioned earlier, the phone retains some trademark features of the original S5 and with IP67 certified body it clearly means that the phone is water and dust resistant and can be submerged under up to a meter of water for half an hour. This water resistant feature might have been fashioned from some special coating because there is no flap covering the microUSB 2.0.
The leather back of the phone features the heart rate monitor and on the front is the Home key which also serves as the fingerprint reader. The phone will be available in Russia this month with color options of Charcoal Black, Shimmery White, Electric Blue and Copper Gold.
