Since there isn’t much in the way of Mac mini rumors at this point in time, other than the PR statement Tim Cook put out last fall claiming the Mac mini is still an important product for Apple (the treatment of it following the Late 2012 seems to suggest otherwise), I’m curious what you think. Will it be discontinued, redesigned with quad-core Coffee Lake processors and upgradable RAM, or simply refreshed with newer dual-core chips?

The last refresh happened in 2014 and is seen by many to be a downgrade due to a move to soldered RAM and no longer offering higher-end quad-core processors as found in Mac mini (Late 2012), though Apple tried to justify it with a $100 price drop. The current Unibody case design is identical to the Mac mini Server (Mid 2010), other than the port arrangement and removal of the twist-off base for easy RAM upgrades.

For anyone coming here through search, please keep in mind that this poll is made up of speculation and not Apple's actual path going forward.
