Following on from Russia and Germany who managed to get their hands on it first, Samsung has announced that us UK lot can now buy the Galaxy S5 mini, as of Thursday 7th August.
This means that we’ll be able to get a smaller, more pocket-friendly version of the Galaxy S5, which features cool stuff like Ultra Power Saving Mode, a heart rate monitor, fingerprint scanner, and connectivity with the latest Samsung wearable devices.
Kitted with a 4.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, the Galaxy S5 mini delivers powerful performance in a stylish, compact design. Like the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 mini also features a unique perforated pattern on the back cover creating a sleek look, along with a premium, soft touch grip.
The Galaxy S5 mini comes equipped with a powerful Quad Core 1.4 GHz processor and 1.5GB RAM for seamless multi-tasking, faster webpage loading, softer UI transition, and quick power up. The high-resolution 8MP camera delivers crisp and clear photos and videos, while the Galaxy S5 mini’s support of LTE Category 4 means you can enjoy ultra-fast downloads of your favourite movies and games while you’re on-the-go.
The Galaxy Young 2 will also be available to the UK the week after the Galaxy S5 Mini is released. Powered by a 1.0 GHz single-core processor, the sleek device features a long-lasting 1300mAh battery, a 3MP camera and an impressive 3.5-inch HVGA display. The Galaxy Young 2 also offers Samsung’s user-friendly TouchWiz Essence interface, the latest Android 4.4 software and eight brand new Gameloft games.
If you want to get your hands on either of these new devices, they’ll be available to buy from selected online retailers, including Samsung Experience Stores and Carphone Warehouse.
