The mini version of Galaxy S5 smartphone will be waterproof, according to a statement on Samsung New Zealand’s official website. This marks a rare occasion when a manufacturer has confirmed the existence and revealed features of an unannounced product, albeit most likely due to oversight.

Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 as well as last year’s Galaxy S4 Active feature IP67 certification, meaning that the two can withstand being submerged up to 1 metre deep in water for a maximum of 30 minutes, along with resistant to dust.

Under the warranty exclusions section on its website, Samsung New Zealand has written that “submersion of the Samsung Galaxy S5, S5 Mini or S4 Active mobile phone in water for 30 minutes or more” will result in the warranty being voided.

This statement suggests that Galaxy S5 Mini will be water- and dust-resistant as well.

The upcoming Galaxy S5 Mini is rumoured to have a 4.5-inch 720p screen, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB RAM, Android 4.4 (KitKat) operating system, 8MP rear camera, 16MB internal storage, microSD support and 2MP front camera.

Samsung is also working on a camera-centric variant of Galaxy S5 (expected to be named Galaxy K Zoom), as well as a premium version with metallic body and higher-end specifications.
