This year has been an exciting outing for Samsung and its fans thanks to the magnificent Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, and the even better Galaxy Note 7 flagships.
The South Korean tech giant suffered a turbulent 2015 with its Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 – handsets that did not do well due to a number of reasons. In fact, the company did not have such a successful year as it has had over the past few years. But this success is back in 2016 thanks to three phones that pack the best hardware specs, great designs, world-class cameras and top-notch software, just to name but a few perks.
As everyone keeps yearning to get their hands on the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge or the phablet Galaxy Note 7, there is a group of users that are still hanging onto their Galaxy S5 Mini or even Galaxy S4 Mini in the hope that Samsung will still consider them. Last year, the Korean company did not release a Galaxy S6 Mini, instead, it added a 5.7-inch Galaxy S6 Edge+ and a Galaxy S6 Edge to the list. In the mid-range family, things got huge with the releases of Galaxy J and Galaxy A series and apparently, it Samsung seems to be sending a message that there is no space for the small-screen handsets by refreshing these mid-rangers with 2016 models.
While there have been rumors of a Galaxy S7 Mini in the making, it seems unlikely that Samsung has such plans in place. But would you mind having an S7 Mini around? Not everyone has a hand that can comfortably accommodate the 5.1-inch Galaxy S7, 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge or the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 7. With a Galaxy S7 Mini that packs the same hardware, that is, a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 3GB RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, 12MP DualPixel main camera, and 5MP selfie camera; but with a smaller 4.6-inch Super AMOLED Full HD screen, Samsung will for sure attract a huge following, especially if the handset is offered at a much lower price than the flagships.
Don’t get your hopes too high, though, as Samsung has not said a thing about coming in with a Galaxy S7 Mini. This is wishful writing, and hopefully, it comes to materialize.
