Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini handset will likely launch in mid-July

According to a new SamMobile report, citing an unidentified source, Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini smartphone - which is yet to be officially announced by Samsung - will probably hit the markets across the world in mid-July.

The Galaxy S5 Mini's mid-July launch date projected by the SamMobile source quite plausible, given the fact that Samsung had launched its Galaxy S4 Mini handset at around the same time last year. However, there is no information about the expected pricing of the Galaxy S5 Mini handset.

Going by the details shared by the SamMobile source, the Galaxy S5 Mini will be a scaled down version of Samsung's latest flagship handset - the Galaxy S5. A number of features of the Galaxy S5 Mini will be the same as those of its bigger counterpart.

Like the S5 handset, the S5 Mini will also be a water- and dust-resistant handset which will boast a fingerprint scanner and a heart-rate monitor.

Some of the other features of the S5 Mini will include a 4.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED Gorilla glass display; a quad-core Exynos 3 processor; 1.5GB of RAM; an 8-megapixel camera; and 16GB of built-in storage capacity. The handset will run Android 4.4.2 with Samsung's latest Touchwiz offering.
