The past few weeks saw an influx of rumors pointing towards the existence of a Galaxy S9 Mini. Like with previous years, however, those rumors were debunked, proving that Samsung has no intention of releasing a compact flagship anytime soon. It would seem that the rumored devices are, in fact, going to be Galaxy S8 Lite and the A8 star.

The first device appeared with the model number SM-G8750 and will be the S8 Lite. It's apparently designed for the Chinese market and will be Samsung's first step in its attempt to gain a decent market share in China. It's said to feature a FHD+ display in the region of 5.7 inches, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, and a Snapdragon 660.

The second device, the SM-G8850, will be the A8 Star. It's claimed to be positioned as an improved version of the A8+ (2018), and will attempt to go against OPPO and Vivo's offerings. It will sport a 24 MP + 16 MP dual rear camera setup, a 6.3-inch FHD+ display, a 3700 mAh battery, an Exynos 7885, possibly up to 6 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage.

Both devices are expected to run on Android Oreo out of the box.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017.
