The Galaxy S5 Mini has been available for some time, and indeed it will likely be replaced by a Galaxy S6 variant in the coming months. However, the handset is only now coming to AT&T, with the Galaxy S5 Mini making its debut on the US network on March 20th (this Friday).The GS5 Mini is a mid-range smartphone and its pricing with Ma Bell reflects that. On a two year agreement the device costs $99.99, while unlocked without commitment it can be bought with a single payment of $428.99. Those purchasing the Galaxy S5 Mini on AT&T's Next plan can pay $14.30 over 30 months or over 20 months for $21.48. The Galaxy S5 Mini has been available in the United States through U.S. Cellular and it comes with a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED 720p HD screen. Elsewhere there is a Samsung made Exynos 3470 clocked at 1.4GHz, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB, a micro SD card slot, an 8 megapixel rear snapper, a 2.1 megapixel front facer, and finally a 2100 mAh battery. The device comes with Android 4.4 KitKat on board, but is almost certain to get Android 5.0 Lollipop sometime this year.
