It wouldn’t surprise Samsung fans if the company came out with the Galaxy S7 mini. Samsung has released “mini” variants of its Galaxy S smartphones in the past – there were reports that it was working on the Galaxy S6 mini but we never saw that handset – a new rumor out of Taiwan claims that to compete against Apple’s upcoming smaller iPhone Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy S7 mini with either the Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 processor.

Apple has scheduled an event on March 21 where it’s expected to launch the iPhone SE. It’s said to be a 4-inch iPhone with an A9 processor and NFC for Apple Pay. The rumor out of Taiwan claims that owing to the interest surrounding this handset Samsung might come out with the Galaxy S7 mini. The new handset is said to feature a 4.6-inch 720×1280 resolution display and a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 processor under the hood. These are the same processors you’ll find in the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge. The Galaxy S7 mini is also rumored to feature 3GB RAM and a 12-megapixel rear camera in a package that’s just 9.9mm thin.

This is pure speculation at this point in time as there’s no concrete evidence to show that Samsung really has the Galaxy S7 mini in the pipeline. If there’s any truth to this rumor we’re likely going to hear more about this device in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we’ll keep our ear to the ground to find out more about the Galaxy S7 mini.
