Samsung to be working on the Galaxy S5 Neo. Or Mini?

A new Samsung device spotted in tests.
It’s been only a few weeks since the Galaxy S5 was introduced at MWC 2014, in Barcelona. And even though most people didn’t had the chance to play with the phone, it seems that Samsung is already working on a new version, apparently based on their current flagship.
The Indian site Zauba, used for tracking imports and exports into and out of India, shows us a new Samsung phone with the model number SM-G800F, apparently shipped for R&D testing.
The price tag is set a7 31,790 Rupees, which is the equivalent of $520. Still, there’s a big mystery around this phone. The Galaxy S5’s codename is SM-G900F, so this one could be a lower model. Considering that the S5 is also present on Zauba, at $541, we might be dealing with a Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo or S5 mini here.
Personally, I think that the mini variant it’s excluded, as $21 is a way to small difference between the two, so we’re going for the Neo.
For the moment, it’s too early to talk about this, but we’re still very curious how much this new device will borrow from the Galaxy S5.
