For a while, speculation say that Samsung will introduce a Galaxy S7 Mini, the sequel to S6 Mini. Fans were forced to wait, then the South Korean company finally decided to launch the Galaxy S7 Mini, which will compete against Apple’s iPhone SE.


While the news is overwhelming, Samsung is already known for releasing “mini” variants of the Galaxy “S” series in the past. Having a size of 4.6 inches, the device is expected to carry high-end features, including the company’s own Exynos 8890 processor or Snapdragon 820.

In a bid to take over Apple’s 4-inch iPhone SE, Samsung came up with the idea of an S7 Mini handset. According to new rumors out of Taiwan, the upcoming Mini is going to be everything consumers demand. The device will feature a 4.6-inch display screen with 720×1280 display resolution, a 12MP rear camera and 3GB of RAM.

Reports claim that a “periscope lens” having 3x optical zoom might feature on the handset, but there’s more possibility the accessory will be sold separately with the phone, reports GSM Arena. No further details about launch date and specifications of the phone have been revealed.

Apple, on the other hand, is gearing up for the March 21 launch event, which will see the iPhone SE along with a 9.7-inch iPad Pro and an upgraded version of Apple Watch. The Cupertino giant last launched the 4-inch iPhone 5S in 2013; since then, there has been no new 4-inch iPhone from the company. Instead, there were two other handsets launched in the interval: a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus.

Leaked renders suggest that the upcoming iPhone SE will mostly resemble the iPhone 5s but will adopt similar features as found on the 6s and 6s Plus. It should, however, be noted that there won’t be 3D touch displays on this new phone, states Tech Times.
