Flipkart today posted a teaser on its facebook page which looks like Samsung’s Galaxy S5 Mini. They posted “Expect something small from a big name in smartphones”.
This text along with the image pretty much confirms it is the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini and that too Flipkart will sell it exclusively. So this basically means, the Galaxy S5 Mini would only be available online which would actually allow it to be priced competitively. This would also be the first exclusive Galaxy smartphone on Flipkart which has lately become the king of exclusives.
Under the hood, the smartphone is based on Android 4.4.2 Kitkat and powered by an Exynos 3 Quad 3470 processor running at 1.4 GHz Cortex-A7. The screen measures 4.5 inches and has a 1280 by 720 pixel resolution at 326 ppi.
The smartphone has a 8-megapixel camera on the rear and a 2.1-megapixel front camera. It has 1.5 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage with microSD card slot which would hold up to 64 GB. The Galaxy S5 mini just weighs 120 grams and is 9.1 mm thick.
This Flipkart Exclusive could revive Samsung’s fortune which had a bad time in India recently after not doing so well in the high end market. With the right price it could prove to be a winner for Samsung as well as Flipkart who also has become the Exclusive Smartphone’s leader in India.
