Though there are also speculations that it could come with a tad smaller 4.3-inch display. However, the Samsung Galaxy S8 mini will be less powerful than the incumbent flagship smartphone as it s rumored to come with a rather dated Snapdragon 821 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. It is expected to come with 32GB of onboard storage. Other expected features of the smartphone include an iris scanner, as seen in the Galaxy S8 series.
