While many have been expecting Samsung to launch a mini version of the Galaxy S5 given the company's past habits, there have been questions about just what the smartphone would include. Would it be as hobbled as last year's S4 Mini? Maybe not. SamMobile has received photos of a purported Galaxy S5 Mini which hint that this smaller device could include the fingerprint and heart rate sensors of its full-size sibling, as well as the water-resistant shell. Not surprisingly, it would also share the Ultra Power Saving mode and other software tricks.

The snapshots don't reveal what's inside, but their source claims that the hardware won't be quite as much of a downgrade as in previous years. You could see a 4.5-inch, 720p AMOLED display along with a budget-minded 1.4GHz quad-core processor; there should also be a decent 1.5GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front shooter and 16GB of expandable storage. The tip doesn't include a release date, but it's coming hot on the heels of the Galaxy S5 Active launch -- it's easy to see the Mini arriving relatively soon.
