Being a Mini version of the flagship model, the tech-specs are scheduled to get toned down a notch.

Rumors claim that Samsung is looking forward to launching the smartphone sometime along February 2016, although, it is too early to comment on these rumors. Some people are of the opinion that it is too late for Samsung to show up with an S6 Mini, since the smartphone’s market lifespan is dwindling fast.
Only time will tell whether the S6 Mini can live up to the expectations of the company and the loyalists. Samsung is currently gearing up to launch the next-gen flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7, and with the holiday season about to end, this is the perfect time to launch the new product.
Samsung could also launch both the devices together,but experts believe that the Korean tech giants are in no mood to compromise on quality and user experience on the Galaxy S6 Mini, which is also a probable cause for the massive delay in launching the device.
