An image has leaked online that shows a Samsung device called the “Galaxy S5 Dx.” This screenshot, courtesy of reputable device leaker @evleaks, is from the Samsung UK site and reveals the model number SM-G800, which has long been rumoured to be the Galaxy S5 mini.

Previous reports indicated that Samsung will launch this scaled down version of its flagship with a 4.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, Android 4.4 KitKat, an 8MP rear-camera and a 2MP front-facing camera, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB storage and a 2,100 mAh battery.

As the image shows, the Galaxy S5 Dx has a similar design to the Galaxy S5, but appears to lack a heart rate sensor. In addition, the GS5 Dx looks like it will be available in several colour options: black, blue, white, yellow and gold.

Unfortunately, there is no indication of when an official announcement will be made, carrier partners, or a price point.

    Why not use the same CPU/RAM as in the “regular” S5? Ok about battery, but why cripple the device processing power? So it is either you get a giant phone or a sluggish one. Meh!

      Because people who think like you will choose to buy the S5 instead. And people who are not as tech savy – like most parents, don’t really want a big phone, and buys a phone simply because of brand (probably listening to recommendations from their kids), will choose to go with something like this. Win-win on Samsung’s part. Where have you been when Samsung has been flooding the market the last few years?
