Samsung news hints that there might be a mini version of Samsung Galaxy S9 coming out in the near future
Rumors have it that the ever-so-successful South Korean tech giant, Samsung, is planning on launching a mini version of the mega successful Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. If we look at the company’s portfolio from the past, the only mini version released for a smartphone in the Galaxy S series was Samsung Galaxy S5. However, a new benchmark test report published on Geekbench has shown a device with model number SM-G8750 and is most likely to be Galaxy S9 mini.
Features and Specifications according to Samsung news
Even though the entry made in Geekbench doesn’t exactly give this device a name except for that model number, the statistics shown for it pack some pretty powerful features for a mid-ranger mini smartphone.
The chip in this phone is said to be Snapdragon 660 in combination with 4 GB of RAM. Snapdragon 660 is the latest mid-range chip from Qualcomm. Even if it is a Samsung Galaxy S9 mini, what we do expect from it is to at least feature the Full HD resolution of Samsung’s Infinity Display, which is around 2220×1080 pixels and curved edges on both sides.
The device is going to run Android 8.0 Oreo, which is a no-brainer in all upcoming mid-rangers in 2018. It is also safe to anticipate that the upcoming mid-rangers’ chipsets will carry an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 512 CPU. However, as far the camera features goes, we’re still not clear on the fact of S9 mini will have the same super slow motion video feature and AR emojis like that seen in the original Galaxy S9.
Conclusively, we are not going to give in to the rumors and light technology news entirely and make you believe that this mid-ranger set priced around $500 is going to carry the Intelligent Scan present in the S-series flagship. There’s no official announcement about the anticipated smartphone device yet so we’re going to have to wait for that in order to get our hopes up for the much-loved Samsung mini phones.
