in India, and though the company has not provided a release date beyond 'coming soon' - the smartphone is expected to be made available in the coming days.
The Indian e-commerce giant announced the exclusive retail partnership with a Facebook post
late on Monday night, saying, "Style goes hand-in-hand with substance. Compact design. Stunning processor. Mini talks big. Coming soon. Exclusive," alongside an image of the Galaxy S5 Mini Duos. It is not clear whether the phone will be available through physical retail channels as well.

), the mini-variant will be available in Charcoal Black, Shimmery White, Electric Blue and Copper Gold colour variants.
