By now the Galaxy Note 8 is old news and all of us tech heads need some juicy rumors to whet the appetite. Yesterday we saw a "leaked" CAD image of the Galaxy S9, and now there is a new rumor suggesting Samsung is working on a Galaxy S9 mini. This will be exciting news for some. Samsung has not sold a mini version of the Galaxy lineup since the Galaxy S5 mini. Back then phones with 5-inch+ displays were considered giant, and there was a much larger market for phones with smaller displays.
I think most of us in the Android world have become accustomed to devices with display sizes of 5" or larger. Anything else at this point seems a bit microscopic. A new report out of Business Korea thinks Samsung is looking to revive the mini lineup next year. According to their sources the Galaxy S9 mini will feature a 4" with curved edges. If the device features the same minimized bezels that we expect to see on the Galaxy S9 this will be one tiny phone. This may end up featuring the same specs as the larger variants at a similar price point. We are still pretty early here so of course take this news with a grain of salt.
