Not long after a Samsung device with the model number SM-G8750 surfaced on Geekbench with a Snapdragon 660 onboard, the SM-G8850 hits TENAA with a Snapdragon 845 inside. Nothing is official yet, but insiders familiar with this matter claim that the handset should be unveiled in the coming weeks.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
