AT&T has just announced that it will start selling the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini on March 20, which is this Friday. On that day, the smartphone will be up for grabs both online as well as in the company’s brick and mortar stores.
The carrier is incredibly late with this release, given that the Galaxy S5 Mini first went on sale elsewhere in July of last year. In fact, we could be seeing Samsung announce a Galaxy S6 Mini soon, and AT&T is just getting round to launching the older model.
Anyway, if the thought of purchasing an S5 Mini from this particular carrier excites you, then you should know that you’ll need to pay $ 99.99 if you sign a new two-year contract. If you’re not into long-term commitments the sum you have to shell out is $ 428.99. The other alternative is to use AT&T’s Next installment plans.
If you do that, you pay nothing for the device upfront, then followed by either 20 monthly installments of $ 21.48, or 24 payments of $ 17.88, or 30 equal installments of $ 14.30. AT&T seems to only be offering the black version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini.
The phone comes with a 4.5-inch 720p touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2.1 MP front unit for selfies, and a 2,100 mAh battery. It’s powered by an Exynos 3 Quad 3470 chipset, with a 1.4 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU, aided by 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage space. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
