Those used to see mini variants of Samsung's flagships were disappointed to see the South Korean company skipping the Galaxy S6 mini. Fortunately, it looks like the rumors concerning the imminent launch of a compact iPhone pushed Samsung to bring back the mini and to prepare a small Galaxy S7.

According to industry insiders, the Galaxy S7 mini will launch with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 or Samsung's Exynos 8890 Octa SoC. That would turn the 4.6-inch handset into a very potent smartphone for gamers, since its resolution is expected to be quite low - only 1,280X720 pixels, thus allowing better framerates when compared to the other Galaxy S7 models that use QHD screens.

In addition to the above, the Galaxy S7 mini is also expected to feature 3 GB RAM and a 12 MP main camera, all inside a package thinner than 0.39 inches. This handset should come out loaded with Android Marshmallow, but everything should be taken with a grain of salt for the time being. We will get back to the Galaxy S7 mini as soon as we hear anything new, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
