Alleged Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini hits TENAA, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in tow
Less than two weeks ago, the Samsung SM-G8750 handset surfaced on Geekbench. Back then, we heard that the SM-G8750 is the upcoming — yet to be confirmed — Galaxy S9 Mini. However, this handset only has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, and now the SM-G8850 arrived at TENAA with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip that Samsung used for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ flagships.
Sadly, the TENAA listing does not include many details. However, it is quite safe to assume that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor is accompanied by 4 GB or 6 GB of memory, 64 GB internal storage, a battery with a capacity around 3,000 mAh, as well as a flat AMOLED display. The operating system is Android Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.0 on top, there should be no doubt about that.
Back in November 2017, a mobile device known as the Samsung SM-G888 was spotted online. Unfortunately, it did not arrive at CES 2018 in January, so Samsung might have quite a few surprises left for mobile fans this year.
In addition to the specs mentioned above, we expect to see the S9 Mini featuring a single camera on the back. Even more, while most rumors claim a screen size around 5.7-inch, we hope to see a real "Mini" device that provides flagship power in a pocketable format with a screen size of 5.2-inch or less.
