Samsung has announced the Galaxy S5 Mini, which is a smaller version of its flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone. The S5 Mini will offer many of the same features of the S5, but in a smaller package.

The S5 Mini will come with a 4.5” screen, down from 5.1” on the S5. It will also come with a few of the standout features of the original S5, including the fingerprint scanner, heart rate sensor, and most importantly being water and dust resistant. Having a device that is both water and dust resistant provides peace of mind. If the device happens to get rained on or fall into water, you aren't going to lose everything on your device. The Mini will look very similar to the original S5 as well.
Unfortunately, the S5 Mini will not pack the same punch as the S5. It features a less powerful dual-core processor, less RAM, and less memory. The Mini will also feature an 8 MP camera instead of the 16 MP camera on the S5.

Although not as powerful, the S5 Mini is a nice option for someone looking for a smaller, cheaper version of the S5. An exact release date and price has not been released yet.
