Rumors about a “mini” version of Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphones have once again hit the canvas. And today, we learn more about a possible Galaxy S9 mini. Indeed, a smartphone that most blogs name Galaxy S9 mini has ended up on Geekbench , although we have no way of knowing if this is really the case.
Geekbench therefore lists a smartphone known as model number SM-G8750, and was downloaded on Monday. The tech blogosphere was stubborn in saying it was the Galaxy S9 Mini simply because it looks like a smaller version of the S9, which was launched earlier this year.
In any case, the smartphone that appears in the benchmark works on Android Oreo, and presents a Qualcomm octa-core processor clocked at 1.84 GHz , which could be the chip Snapdragon 660. This would place the smartphone in the category of devices of mid-range, perfectly matching a “mini” version of the high-end model. In addition, under the hood, the smartphone also has 4 GB of RAM, and there are no other obvious details on the smartphone on Geekbench.
The size of the screen is not mentioned, although it could be around 5 inches. If the smartphone described in the listing turns out to be the Galaxy S9 mini, then we can expect similarities with the Samsung flagship , the Galaxy S9, although it is unlikely to have the characteristics high range of the S9, as the camera with dual photo sensor.
Does Samsung really envision a Galaxy S9 Mini?
Some blogs assign the user to Twitter @MMDDJ the first mention of the Galaxy Mini S9 few days ago, but it is not really known leaks. However, another source, Ice Universe, may have mentioned the S9 mini at the end of last year, and the latter is better known for leaks.
For what it’s worth, there has been no “mini” version of Samsung Galaxy S smartphones since 2014 , when the Galaxy S5 mini was launched. But the industry simply could not give up the idea of mini versions of flagship smartphones. As a result, we regularly hear that Samsung is planning another mini version. The Korean giant does not seem particularly interested in offering smartphones with smaller screens these days, as consumers continue to show a growing preference for phones with bigger screens
