Sammy going to take compact phones market... good luck with that when apple and Sony are kings of compact devices... :P
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha ROFL on Samsung
Mini with 5.3 inch screen.
Mini and anything above 4.7 does go side by side.
The width of s8 is 68.1mm, that is already skinny though the screen has more height, if the it will be 5,3" with 18:9 ratio, won't it be too skinny even for compact?
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2017Have you ever seen how small galaxy s8 and s8 plus look? What you want is really not practical.Have you seen them yourself? They are gigantic. S8 is hard to hold in a hand, not talking about control.
sonystyle, 03 Jul 2017SD660 better than SD821 !!! I'd take the SD821 over the 660
Anonymous, 03 Jul 20175.3 inch is mini? Lol it must be 5 inch at least for comfortable use.Have you ever seen how small galaxy s8 and s8 plus look? What you want is really not practical.
that would be great news... I was for a longtime on a fence to upgrade to S8, but felt my current S6edge was already on the upper end of size for me and, didn't want do go for any bigger phone. The only problem with S8 mini is that when it launch it will cost same as full size S8 with more premium features, which will bring extra headache to decide between 2.
Bebe Rexha, 03 Jul 2017Indeed it won't be as good as the XZ1 Compact, 'cause that phone will likely feature the newes... moreBut 18:9 is bad for durability isn't it.... No bezels to shield from the drops...
JZ, 03 Jul 2017Sigh, don't bother if you're not going launch this phone with an proper updated processor.Hey, this is a mini variant. Mini variant always have their chipset downgraded to a lower tier chipset. Do u even have a brain to think?

5.3 inch is mini? Lol it must be 5 inch at least for comfortable use.
Agree on SD 6 series, but 5,3'' is still overkill. This would place screen's top edge at around 125-126 mm, like SGS 6. It's unusable for a one hand. For one-hand usage top edge of the screen should go beyond 115 from bottom edge. So 4,9-5,0'', considering little bezel at top and bottom. With 5,3'' it's a dead project. Still oriented at those who doesn't need huge shovel. It is still shovel.
Give me the link right away to preorder it! Waiting for a device like this now for years!
Hopefully this is real, might make more oems release smaller devices.
Probably won't happen like most rumored small phones.
Indeed it won't be as good as the XZ1 Compact, 'cause that phone will likely feature the newest 18:9 rumored display which was announced by JDI.
Apple and Sony are the kings of compact devices, and they're actually working together to get themselves first on Sony's pioneered display technology called CLEDIS, a display that offers the accuracy of IPS with infinite contrast ratio of OLED minus their major drawbacks.
That's good news. Better pack SD660 as others have said and hopefully it makes to USA but I doubt it.
