Samsung Galaxy S6 mini could arrive in August with 720p screen
It seems like Samsung will have a barrage smartphones rolling out from their flagship lineups next month. One device the reports are so sure of is the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 which is expected to debut on the 13th of August. The Samsung flagship will be joined later on (no specific date was given) by the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, a bigger iteration of the curved-display Galaxy S6 edge.
Finally, we are going to see the Samsung Galaxy S6 mini. Needless to say, it’s a reincarnation of the Galaxy S6 in a smaller body. The former is said to be packing a “4.6-inch or 4.7-inch” display with a measly HD (720p) of resolution. Yes, measly. The Samsung Galaxy S6 had a Quad HD (1440p) resolution, so isn’t the “mini” supposed to have something like a Full HD (1080p) display? Well, let’s pause the beef from here. Things aren’t even official so we can’t know for sure if Samsung is so mindless to throw a 720p display into the scenario.
Furthermore, the Galaxy S6 mini will be throttling on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor — the same SoC that powers the LG G4. Interestingly, a 2GB of RAM will be adopted to power the handset and this could mean the chipset has been clocked down a bit to array with the power characteristics of the RAM. A 15-megapixel camera was also mentioned although we saw no traces of optical image stabilization features in the information we obtained.
No particular release date accompanied the report but trust how the industry works; we’ll surely be expecting the Galaxy S6 mini as early as next month having seen leaked pictures already.
