Samsung may have various Galaxy S5 versions in the works, including a Prime and a mini model, with the latter having apparently been spotted on Samsung’s own website. Dubbed the Galaxy S5 Dx, the handset can be clearly seen in a screenshot posted online by famed leaker @evleaks.

The Galaxy S5 Dx will apparently be available in more colors than its bigger brother, according to Samsung’s webpage, although the phone is hardly official. The leak does not mention any actual availability details for the handset, and hardware details aren’t official either, but the URL of the page reveals the Galaxy S5 Dx will have model number SM-G800.

The phone appears to have the same general design as the Galaxy S5, complete with Samsung’s redesigned-but-still-plastic back covers. A heart rate sensor doesn’t appear to be found on the back of the device, although one wouldn’t be necessarily needed, as long as users would connect the device with one of Samsung’s wearable gadgets for heart rate measurements.

The screenshot, available below, offers a clear plug to Samsung’s Gear and Gear Fit devices, in addition to showing the Galaxy S5 Dx handset and its color options.

A recent leak claimed the Galaxy S5 mini would pack a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution, Qualcomm processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 8-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, IR blaster, 2100mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat. A previous report said the phone will be waterproof, just like its bigger brother.
