Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is just about to make its way to the hands of smartphone fans around the globe, and here in the States we’re ready to see pre-orders for the handset begin. Last year, following the release of the Galaxy S 4, Samsung introduced a number of related models: the GS4 Zoom, Active, and Mini (above). Will we see the same sort of selection for the GS5? An Active variant may be a tough sell, as the GS5 itself already offers water and dust protection, but we have seen some evidence pointing to a possible GS5 Zoom. What about a Mini model, though? The User Agent Profile for an unknown Samsung Android has just been spotted, and it may well fit the bill for a GS5 Mini.
We’re looking at Samsung’s model SM-G750A. The trailing A indicates an AT&T carrier edition (AT&T’s GS5 should be SM-G900A), and the UAProf reveals a 720p display and a processor running at 2.3GHz – that has us thinking that we’re looking at a Snapdragon 800. Yeah, it might be an 801, but if we’re going with this GS5 Mini theory, we wouldn’t expect quite so tip-top an SoC (despite how much we might like to believe otherwise).
What’s weird, though, is that we don’t see any matching UAProf for an SM-G750 with a Verizon, T-Mobile, or even Sprint suffix. Nor do we when trying any of the “open Europe” letters with which we’re familiar. That may all simply be a consequence of this listing being quite new: it was created early Wednesday morning. Maybe we’ll be seeing corresponding entries become available for other carrier/regional variants in the days to come.
