Samsung Galaxy S9 mini surfaces in benchmark test with SD-660, 4GB of RAM and Android Oreo?

Samsung Galaxy S9 mini surfaces in benchmark test with SD-660, 4GB of RAM and Android Oreo?
The last "mini" handset launched by Samsung was the Galaxy S5 mini, which was released in 2014. Now, it appears as though Samsung is going to bring back a mini version of its latest flagship phone. That is, if a Geekbench listing is legitimate. According to the benchmark test, the Galaxy S9 mini has a model number of SM-G8750, and will feature the Snapdragon 660 mobile platform under the hood. The chipset carries an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 512 GPU.

Remember when only flagship models were equipped with 4GB of RAM? The Geekbench test reveals that the Galaxy S9 mini will come with 4GB of RAM with Android Oreo pre-installed. Since three months passed between the release of the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S5 mini, we might not see the Galaxy S9 mini hit the market until June or July. That is assuming that the device benchmarked was really the Galaxy S9 mini and not a different unreleased Samsung Galaxy phone.

These days, a mini device means a handset sporting a 5-inch display. We could see the same Infinity Display on the Galaxy S9 mini, with an edge-to-edge design and an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Considering that the Galaxy S9 carries a 3000mAh battery, perhaps a 2500-2750mAh cell will be found powering the handset.

To reiterate, the SM-G8750 doesn't necessarily have to be the Samsung Galaxy S9 mini. If you are hoping that the "mini" has returned, you might want to keep your fingers crossed until we find evidence that is more definitive.

Only Sony can understand what "mini" means.

LOL. The iPhone 8(the smallest high-end phone apple makes) is almost the same size as the S9, which is laughable considering how much more screen the S9 packs.

iPhone SE is mini in my view, not iPhone 8.

I agree. The 8 is smaller than most of the Android high-ends (which is great for me) but not really mini. I went from the SE to the 7 and there's a size difference for sure.

iPhone SE can't be considered a flagship.

I never talked about flagships. So don't give that as an excuse to prove me wrong.

I said high-end phones. SE isn't high end by any stretch of imagination. It's 2-3 year old based on how you look at its hardware.

I didn't want to touch 'high end' in post no.26 since it doesn't alter the fact only Apple makes a high end mini phone in 2018. See, high end? It means the iPhone SE is still high end in my opinion, just not the highest end. Sorry if I confuse you.

If the SE is high end, so is this S9 mini. IMO, the SE was pretty high-end when it launched, but we need an SE2 with A10/11 and the iPhone 8's camera to be called high-end again. Only the XZ2 compact comes to mind when it comes to high end compact phones.

Yeah the rumored S9 mini seems to be pretty high end. I never said it wasn't

He said "high end" the SE is no longer really a High End phone.

The SE is a high end phone in my opinion. Just not the highest end. I explained that in post no.36

But not with the latest XZ2 Compact which is quite big.

Interesting. Hopefully it's true

XZ2 Compact is pretty mediocre looking and I highly doubt the screens are actually 10bit, probably just 8 bit + FRC

Hope it gets at least the same cameras as s8. The main camera on A8 is not good.

What's the need of mini when there are A series phones. Samsung please be simple instead of making 100s of phones & better concentrate on giving lastest patch & updates.
