Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini Specs Confirmed by AnTuTu Listing; Snapdragon 660 SoC, 4GB RAM in Tow

We’ve been hearing a lot about the Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini smartphone these days and here’s one more to the growing list. The Galaxy S9 Mini with model number sm-g8850 has now paid a visit to popular benchmarking portal AnTuTu, which confirmed the specifications of the device. As per the listing, the S9 Mini will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. The device will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Alongside that, the smartphone will have a display with 2220 x 1080 resolution (Full HD+). At the time of the benchmark, the smartphone was running Android 8.0 Oreo possibly on top of Samsung Experience UI.

The device on AnTuTu benchmark achieved a score of 136483, which is in-line with other Snapdragon 660 devices available in the market today such as the Nokia 7 Plus, Xiaomi Mi Note 3 and more. These are the only details revealed by the benchmark listing. With the device paying a visit to the benchmark apps, it is safe to presume the launch date is nearing.

Just yesterday, we reported that the purported Galaxy S9 Mini with model number sm-g8850 received Chinese regulatory certification TENAA. The listing revealed the upcoming smartphone would sport the same glass and metal sandwich design as the Galaxy S9 duo, but it will feature a smaller display (5.6-inch one, to be precise) with lower resolution.

It was rumoured earlier as well that the device will have Snapdragon 660 SoC under the hood and the same is confirmed by the benchmark leak. To the back of the S9 Mini, there are two vertically aligned cameras same as the ones present on the iPhone X. They’re said to be two 12MP sensors without the variable aperture feature which we saw on the Galaxy S9, but they’ll be capable mid-range cameras. There will be an 8MP front-facing camera, and the phone will be armed with a 3000mAh battery.

It’s still unknown for which markets Samsung is aiming the Galaxy S9 Mini, but the company does not have its presence in the Rs 35,000 to Rs 45,000 price bracket in India. Samsung is now selling the two-year-old Galaxy S7 Edge around Rs 35,000, but it stopped marketing the device though. With the same Edge-to-Edge display, gorgeous design and decent mid-range hardware, the Galaxy S9 Mini could be a decent mid-range device from the South Korean smartphone giant.

Buy a expensive samsung and then see the prices falling like crazy and then the phone vanishes from the market within a year (referring to the a5 2017 model)

Galaxy S9 and S9+ didn’t sell well for samsung, one of the reasons to come up with mini version. They failed themselves by launching nothing with S9 at a price of 60000 first now retailing at 50000 with cashbacks. Days of samsung are gone like sony.

Battery is not good on S9+!!!!!!LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are still perfect devices!!!!!

There is no major upgrade over Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8!!!!!I feel Note 8 is the best device which is value for money just behind Google Pixel Xl 2!!!!!Samsung Galaxy S9 also has battery backup issues!!!!! Don’t know what’s the reason!!!!! Maybe update will help their sales!!!!! Otherwise top notch device!!!!!

Samsung S8, S8+, Note 8 etc are all still perfectly fine devices, and that’s why repeat purchases are less by these users. New buyers of S9 & S9 + will consider S8+ or S8 because price is reduced now.

But sales for S9 & S9+ will pick up after some months for sure when Note 9 comes out.

Also after Note 7 debacle, Samsung has came up with almost perfect device in form of Note 8!!!!!You can blindly buy Note 8!!!!!Same goes with LG V30!!!!! That’s the reason People are not buying Samsung Galaxy S9+!!!!!

Also LG V30 has improved leaps and bounds over the last year!!!!! People skipped LG G6 due to Snapdragon 821 and bought V30!!!!!! All these things matters in sales of Samsung!!!!!

Nobody is willing to buy anything above 50k in India!!!!! Now it’s interesting to see how next year goes!!!!! Because One Plus will go beyond 40K next year!!!!!
