Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are arguably the two best Android phones that have ever existed. After years of complaints from tech blogs and Android fans, Samsung finally gave in and built a pair of smartphones with premium materials to match their premium performance and premium prices. Unfortunately, even the best isn’t good enough when you’re up against the iPhone 6.
Put plainly, not enough people are buying Samsung’s high-margin S6 series phones to help stop the company’s sliding profits. Well, if the Galaxy S6 isn’t the phone you want… and the Galaxy S6 edge isn’t the phone you want… and the Galaxy S6 Active isn’t the phone you want… and the much-rumored Galaxy S6 edge+ isn’t the phone you want… maybe the newly leaked “Galaxy S6 Mini” will be just what the doctor ordered.
According to Phone Arena, Samsung is prepping a smaller version of its flagship Android smartphone. Considering Apple reportedly scrapped plans to launch a new 4-inch iPhone in 2015, perhaps the new S6 Mini will find a gap in the market.
While the blog’s unnamed source supplied it with photos of the unreleased Samsung phone, he or she apparently had no idea what the Galaxy S6 Mini might be packing under the hood. Phone Arena listed the following rumored specs, though no source was cited: Snapdragon 808 processor, 2GB of RAM, 4.6- or 4.7-inch 720p display, and a 15-megapixel camera.
Here are a few photos of the leaked Samsung phone:
