Galaxy S7 mini rumored with Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 processor

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.

This is nothing from S7. We are waiting for S7 active, S7 active plus, S7 active plus minus. Dear Samsung..

when it comes to “mini” of flagship smartphone, i’d prefer something like,

4.3-4.5″ FHD AMOLED screen, 3GB RAM (though i don’t mind an extra GB), 2400-2600 mhA battery, and everything else is exact same to its flagship sibling, such as the processor, camera, features etc.

I wish they pack inside 2800/3000mah battery since i have Alpha and 1860mah and it is bad outside when nedeed brightnes on full.
Samy do it this time even if the phone becomes thicker.
If its flags. Than let it be regardles of size.

What? A 720p screen only? 3 GB of RAM instead of 4? No way.

Samsung, for god’s sake, please make your the mini variants of your flagships competitive and powerful. Not everyone has big hands to handle the a 5″ or 5.5″ screen, and those people would like that horse power even if that means making it thicker. But PLEASE.

(I know this is a rumor, but I can still complain about this issue that we’ve having for the last 3 years on earlier gens.)

Ugh… Hate those minis. Had a (very) bad experience with one S3 Mini.
Just one thing, since when is 1 cm for a smartphone thin, now when we have 6 mm phones?
Nevermind, the specs are actually not bad.

WHY ???
Samsung make too many phones as it is, – which just delays any updates because of too much work to get all the software up to speed across the range.
To my mind, they just need a basic model, mid model , top end and phablet models.

They could have done a S6 mini instead.
4.5″ FHD AMOLED display, Exynos 7 Octa, 2300mAH battery and all remaining features of S6.
