Samsung’s latest small smartphone has finally been given a UK release date, with the 7th of August being officially revealed by the South Korean company as its day of reckoning.
The Galaxy S5 Mini is the obvious follow-up to the hugely successful S4 Mini which was released last year, and takes a lot from the Galaxy S5 flagship handset released this spring.
The handset will be available in four colours; black, white, blue and gold and will retail at a rather expensive £398.95 sim-free, with contract handsets costing around £30/month.
Packing a 4.5” Super AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB RAM and 16GB internal memory, the S5 Mini is one of the stronger small smartphones on the market though, so could well warrant its price tag.
Also included on the handset is a fingerprint scanner, heart rate sensor and an IP67 protection rating, meaning a quick dip in the sink won’t be leaving you with a toasted device.
You’ll be able to find the Galaxy S5 Mini online and in high street stores on August 7th, with all good phone retailers stocking the handset in some shape or form.
