According to reports, the Galaxy S8 mini will feature a 5.3-inch screen, although it might feel smaller due to the extra wide aspect ratio (18.5:9). The device is rumored to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821, the same processor used in LG G6.

The Galaxy S8 mini should come with 4GB of RAM, same as the Galaxy S8, and 32GB of internal storage. It should also feature a fairly high-end feature, an iris scanner.

The Galaxy S8 mini would be the company's first edition to the 'mini' line since 2014 and the launch of the S5 mini.
