We have not seen a mini version of Samsung’s flagship for years now but some people think that Samsung might be bringing back the tradition after a new Samsung device was spotted in GeekBench.
The device came in with the code SM-G9600 and some people speculated that this could be the Samsung Galaxy S8 Mini device. If this is the case, that means that smaller device could pack a bigger punch compared to the S8 and S8+.
According to Geekbench, the device will be coming in with the Snapdragon 840 processor. While it might look like the device will be coming with a better processor under the casing, that is actually not the case.
The Snapdragon 840 processor is not a successor of the 835 processor but an upgraded version of the Snapdragon 820. The device was also fitted with 4GB of RAM and will be running on the Android 7.1.2 Nougat.
Of course, we can’t say that this is the Mini version for sure but it does look like Samsung is working a different variant of the S8.
