Samsung on Tuesday introduced the Galaxy S5 mini, the smaller brother to its flagship Galaxy S5 flagship Android smartphone that was introduced earlier this year. The Galaxy S5 mini isn’t as powerful as the Galaxy S5, but that doesn’t mean it slumps on features. You’ll still find a lot of the trimmings that are also featured on the Galaxy S5, like the heart rate monitor, the IR blaster, the fingerprint reader and more. Heck, it’s even IP67 resistant to dust and water, which means it can take the same sort of beating as its sibling.
As for the camera, processor, dimensions and everything else? We’ll let you see those specs for yourself in the side-by-side charts below. The Galaxy S5 Mini launches early this month in Russia, but will be available around the globe in the coming months. How do you think it stacks up?
