Samsung SM-G9198 spotted on GFXBench carrying the Snapdragon 808 SoC

Looks like the LG G4 is getting company. Yesterday, we told you about a mystery Microsoft Lumia device (RM-1106) that was spotted taking a dash through the GFXBench site with the 64-bit Snapdragon 808 chipset in tow. This chip is unique in that it offers a hexa-core CPU as opposed to the usual quad-core and octa-core processors that are stuffed inside today's smartphones.

Today, another phone powered by the Snapdragon 808 SoC was discovered running through the GFXBench website. This is the Samsung SM-G9198, and is equipped with a 4.6-inch display with a resolution of 768 x 1280. With Android 5.1.1 pre-installed, the phone is driven by that aforementioned hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage (with 11GB available to the user). A 16MP rear camera is included and on front is a 5MP snapper for selfies and video chats.

We're not sure yet where this model fits into Sammy's lineup. Could this be a "mini" model of some sort, or is it just a mid-range handset? Stay tuned.

Thanks for the tip!
