The S5 Mini uses an almost identical variant of the S5's polycarbonate perforated faux-leather hardware design. Internally, it features a quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos 3 Quad 3470 (for the SM-G800F) or an equally-clocked Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8228 (for SM-800A and SM-G800H) processor with 1.5 GB of RAM (of which approximately 277 MB is reserved for the system), 16 GB of expandable storage, and a 4.5 inch (1280x720 pixel) HD Super AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 326 PPI. The S5 Mini also includes a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.
Below the screen are three buttons. The physical "Home" button in the centre contains a swipe-based fingerprint reader. The "Recent apps" and "Back" buttons are capacitive. The S5 mini no longer uses a "Menu" key like its predecessors.
The Galaxy S5 Mini comes with Android 4.4.2 Kitkat and Samsung's TouchWiz software which includes almost all of the features of the S5.
The S5 Mini contains a 2100 mAh, NFC-enabled battery. Its software, like the S5, also contains an "Ultra Power Saving" mode to further extend battery life; when enabled, all non-essential processes are disabled, and the screen switches to only rendering in white on black. Additional power efficiency features include R2 Semiconductor's envelope tracking to improve power amplifier efficiency thereby decreasing heat and increasing battery life.
