Samsung is rumored to launch Galaxy A6 and A6+ smartphones in China. We have also seen a couple of leaks about the Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini. The Geekbench listing revealed the device to come with the model number SM-G8750. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor and runs on Android 8.0 Oreo. However, a new Samsung smartphone with the model number SM-G8850 is listed on TENAA revealing the first look and few key specifications.
While there is no official confirmation, we expect this to be Galaxy S9 Mini smartphone. Just like the new Galaxy S9 and S9+ smartphones, the Galaxy S9 Mini also comes with a glass sandwich design. It sports a 5.6-inch display when measured with rounded corners or 5.8-inch when measured as a rectangular display. The company will be Super AMOLED panels with Quad HD+ (2960 x 1440 pixels) resolution. Even the Galaxy S9 also came with the same 5.8-inch Quad HD+ display.
It is backed by a 2.8GHz octa-core processor and comes in 4GB and 6GB RAM variants. There is a MicroSD card for storage expansion and also a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting old-fashioned headsets. The Galaxy S9 Mini is backed by a 3,000mAh battery, same as on the Galaxy S9. Both the Galaxy S9 and S9 Mini also measures 147.7mm in length and 68.7mm in width. While the Galaxy S9 measures 8.5mm thick, the rumored Galaxy S9 Mini measures 8.4mm thick.
As seen on the Apple iPhone X, the vertically aligned dual rear cameras are placed at the top left corner. We expect the company to offer the 12MP dual rear cameras without dual aperture feature. For selfies, there is an 8MP camera on the front. Along with the power button and volume rocker, there is also a dedicated Bixby button on this device. It will be supporting dual SIM dual standby and might offer same connectivity options as on the flagship Galaxy S9 smartphones.
On the rear, there is also a fingerprint sensor and Samsung logo. While the rumors say this new device to be launched as Galaxy S9 Mini, we expect this to be a new China-exclusive Galaxy A-series smartphone. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
