It seems that the rumors of a Galaxy S8 Mini may have been a bit exaggerated.
Earlier this week rumors began circulating that Samsung was preparing for the release of a Galaxy S8 Mini. The rumor indicated that the S8 Mini would include a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage and an iris scanner. It was also said to sport a 5.3-inch display that would feel like a 4.7-inch panel due to Samsung’s Infinity Display technology.
Sadly, it now looks as though this isn’t happening. A source with an excellent track record on Twitter reported to DroidHolic that there is no S8 Mini in the pipeline. This news is said to come from a Samsung engineer, but that is taking the report at face value.
It’s hard to say if the S8 Mini had any truth to it or not, but the more important question is if it mattered. The S8 and S8+ offer plenty of options, and with the S8 Active inbound, there seems to be something for everyone who could want an S8.
