Samsung’s last known mini flagship smartphone was the Galaxy S5 Mini. After which, the company has been launching a standard variant and a plus variant of its flagship phones. However, this might soon change as a possible Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini has been listed on TENAA. There are a good number of reasons to claim that SM-G8850 belongs to the flagship S series from Samsung. First, Samsung reserves it’s QHD+ Super AMOLED display for its flagship phones and this device has a QHD+ display. And also. the smartphone runs on the Exynos 9810 Octa-core chipset, which is the chipset used on the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+.

Samsung Galaxy S9 mini: A Compact Flagship

According to the TENAA listing, the Galaxy S9 Mini has the same 5.8 inch display as the Galaxy S9. However, the Galaxy S9 Mini might skip on the Iris Scanner, which will reduce the cost of manufacturing. Additionally, the Galaxy S9 mini might also miss out the wireless charging capability. The smartphone has an iPhone X style dual camera setup with a fingerprint scanner placed in the top middle portion of the smartphone.

According to the TENNA listing, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini has a 5.8 inch QHD+ 2960 × 1440 px Super AMOLED Display. The compact phone runs on the Exynos 9810 Octa-core chipset and has  both 4GB and 6GB RAM options. The listing does not reveal any storage information. However, considering current flagship smartphones from Samsung, the device might have either 64/128GB onboard storage with an optional memory expansion up to 400GB via a micro SD card.

The phone is listed with a dual rear-camera setup with a two 12MP sensors. However, the listing does not mention the presence of variable aperture similar to that on the Galaxy S9. There is however, an 8MP front-facing camera similar to the Samsung Galaxy S9.

If launched, the Galaxy S9 mini is expected to compete against the likes of the OnePlus 6, Honor 10 and the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s, especially in large growing markets like India.
