We already know about a range of Galaxy S5 smartphones which include the main device, the K Zoom and the S5 Active toughened version. Now it looks like, predictably, there’s a mini version on the way to suit those who like smaller smartphones.

Pictures and specs uncovered by Samsung fanatics at SamMobile show that the mini looks a lot like its bigger brother with the overall styling including the Band-Aid / Elastoplast dimples. Important biometric core features of the S5 flagship have been retained it seems with a fingerprint scanner and heart-rate sensor present in the Mini.

Samsung Galaxy Mega 7.0

Yes, that’s a 7-inch smartphone, the popularity of these phablets was recently highlighted here on TechAssimilate, as it is one of the fastest growing categories of smartphones and they are having a noticeably negative impact upon tablet sales. So here we have a smartphone from Samsung that pushes the boundaries that were already stretched by the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 – all the way to 7-inches.

This is simply an expanded Galaxy Mega, according to GSM Arena. However they don’t have the core specs of the upcoming device, which was rumbled thanks to an official FCC device clearance being published. However theyt assure us it is a phablet and not a tablet, which – if it’s part of the Galaxy Mega range – must be correct. Apparently it’s very thin and light – so the other huge dimensions won’t bother you?

Let us know if you’d like to go Mini or Mega in the comments!
