Following its unveiling at this year’s Mobile World Congress, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has been dominating news headlines. In addition to articles digging into its upgrades—such as a larger screen and improved camera, according to Verizon Wireless—there are rumors hitting the web about accessories that are in the works for the phone in addition to an alternate version that will surely please those of you who like your cellular devices on the smaller side.
As noted by the International Business Times, Samsung itself hasn’t actually announced anything that’s about to be listed. However, more often than not these days, news leaks of this nature are to be expected and, in some cases, anticipated by those in the know. That’s particularly true when it comes to the mini version of the Galaxy S5, which is expected to be released in June.
While the normal version boasts a bigger screen at 5.1 inches, it’s expected that the mini will feature one that’s nearly an inch smaller. At least, that would make sense given the difference between the S4 and its mini counterpart, which are at 5 inches and 4.3 inches, respectively, in screen size. In a way, this variety in size allows Samsung to compete even more directly with Apple and its iPhone 5s, which has a 4-inch screen. However, did you know that the iPhone 6 may up the ante to 4.5 inches? That’s the word according to Gotta Be Mobile.
In other Galaxy S5 news, though, UK site Mobile Fun has found images of accessories expected to complement the smartphone. From the looks of it, there will be a new flip wallet cover available in five different colors—white, blue black, blue topaz, rose gold, and glam pink. Those same colors hold true for similar cover design, except this one features a small viewing screen. For those who want that same viewing screen and the added bonus of wireless charging, it looks like those will be available, too. The downside? They’re only coming in white and black—at least, that’s judging by these leaked images.
Expect plenty of more information, especially that of the official variety, regarding the mini and accessories to hit the web soon. The Galaxy S5 will be available for purchase from retailers and carriers on April 11. If you haven’t read up on the smartphone just yet, you can get the full breakdown at GSM Arena.
