Where form meets function

More Samsung news has arrived, but instead of yet more Galaxy Note 8 leaks, it looks like the Korean tech giant is developing a Galaxy S8 Mini.

According to the Chinese website IT Home, the mini handset will come in at 5.3 inches, but as it features a full bezel-less design it will feel closer to a 4.7 inch model. But it’s just the outside that’s smaller, as the mini will keep much of the power behind the Galaxy S8. It features 64GB of storage, a 12MP camera with iris scanning and a Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor. There’s also a microSD card slot to add even more storage if needed.

While nothing is confirmed, it’s likely that the mini will cost less significantly less than the S8, which is currently priced at $725. There are also rumors that it could be available as early as the end of this year. Check back for more info as it comes.

In other tech news, here’s why everyone is talking about the new OnePlus 5 smartphone that dropped last week in Paris.
