Samsung Electronics South Africa has announced the local availability of the brand new GALAXY S5 Mini!

“The GALAXY S5 Mini allows consumers to enjoy the iconic design, essential and useful features of the GALAXY S5, through a maximised minimalism approach,” said Craige Fleischer, Director of Mobile Communications at Samsung SA. “We strive to develop a variety of devices in order to appeal to our consumers’ taste and style.” This third generation Mini device provides the optimal synthesis of design and performance from the flagship GALAXY S5.

With a 4.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, the GALAXY S5 Mini delivers a wide and vivid viewing experience and its compact size provides users with additional comfort, allowing for easy operation with only one hand. Similar to the GALAXY S5, the new addition features a unique perforated pattern on the back cover creating a modern and sleek look, along with a premium, soft touch grip. The S5 Mini enables users to enjoy the same premium experience as the GALAXY S5 with innovative features including IP67 certification, Ultra Power Saving Mode, a heart rate monitor, fingerprint scanner and connectivity with the latest Samsung wearable devices.

Powerful Samsung performance in a compact, portable device

The GALAXY S5 Mini comes equipped with a powerful Quad Core 1.4 GHz processor and 1.5GM RAM for seamless multi-tasking, faster webpage loading, softer UI transition and fast power up. The high-resolution 8MP camera delivers crisp and clear photos and videos, while its support of LTE Category 4 provides users with ultra-fast downloads of movies and games on-the-go.

Eco-system benefits to further enhance the mobile experience

For additional peace of mind, the GALAXY S5 Mini is covered by Samsung’s Accidental Damage from Handling (ADH) Core warranty. ADH Core covers one claim over the 24 month warranty period, including water or screen damage repairs. Samsung’s partnership with AlwaysOn offers GALAXY S5 Mini users 1GB of free* Wi-Fi data, every month for 12 months, using the country-wide network of more than 1 400 local AlwaysOn hotspots, ensuring data costs are reduced. “At Samsung, we are committed to ‘people-inspired innovation’ in order to respond to the users’ dynamic lifestyle needs,” concludes Fleischer. The GALAXY S5 Mini will be available in four colour options: Charcoal Black, Shimmery White, Electric Blue and Copper Gold.
