So far, it was just Motorola and Xiaomi which were selling their devices via their exclusive online retail partner Flipkart. However, it appears that even Samsung will ink a similar deal with the online retailer to sell its mini variant of the Galaxy S5 smartphone.
The news came to notice when Flipkart started teasing the device and its exclusive availability on Facebook yesterday. Even though the retailer has just posted the image and has not mentioned the smartphone's name, it is pretty evident that it is the Galaxy S5 mini.
Precisely, the Facebook post reads, "expect something small from a big name in smartphones" and termed it as a ‘Flipkart Exclusive'. However, the e-commerce site has not mentioned the specific date of the device's launch in the post and since it has already been teased, you can expect the device's launch soon.
