First details of Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini emerge

Samsung could be about to follow in the steps of LG and Sony, offering a smaller version of a flagship, but with all the power of a larger phone.

That's according to SamMobile, which claims model number SM-G750A has been spotted on Samsung's servers, with its profile pointing to a 720p display and a 2.3GHz processor, probably a Snapdragon 800 chip. That indicates a small screen but powerful internal workings, which sounds like a small version of the flagship S5 (pictured above).

The phone is running Android 4.3 right now, but is is likely that the phone will be upgraded to Android 4.4.2 at launch. That's what we do know, but what we don't know is the name. The presumption is the Galaxy S5 Mini, but it could drop as the Galaxy S5 Neo. Either way, it sounds like Samsung is buying into the concept of a powerful phone that fits easily in the hand.

With the phone already at an advanced stage, it doesn't sound like we'll have long to wait before we find out all about it. Our guess would be a launch not longer after the S5 has hit the retail shelves and worked its commercial magic.

After all, it just wouldn't be right if Samsung went a month or two without launching new mobile hardware.
