After getting released Russia and Germany last July, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini is now headed to the retail stores in the United Kingdom. The South Korean technology giant announced that the mini version is scheduled to be released on Aug. 7, 2014.
A GSMArena report claims the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini will be available as well on Samung's official online store and retailer Phones 4u on Thursday, Aug. 7. Pre-orders can be placed now on the S5 Mini which will be offered to the interested consumers in gold, blue, white and black colour choices.
The expected retail price for the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini version is £389.95 (US$660). The pricing scheme is quite expensive compared to the mini variant being retailed in Germany at €380 (US$509) price. In MobileFun.com, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini 16 GB version is available for only £369 (US$625).
With Mobiles.co.uk, the pricing scheme on the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini with contract has been revealed. It is estimated that the Android device will cost £23 (US$39) to £27 (US$46) a month with 500 minutes worth of calls, unlimited texts and 500 MB to 1 GB of data.
"With no handset charge, this is a great handset for users who love larger phones like the S5 but prefer them in a slightly smaller package," Rob Hodges, the Digital and mCommerce Marketer at Mobiles.co.uk, declared, according to a Know Your Mobile report.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini has a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen display, 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS, TouchWiz UI and 16 GB internal storage capacity that can be expanded up to 64 GB through the available microSD card slot.
