Galaxy S9 "mini" with mid-range specs spotted on Geekbench site

Galaxy S9

If Samsung were to really launch the device as the Galaxy S9 mini, then it could mark the revival of the Galaxy S mini series. Since the launch of many mid-rangers by Chinese manufacturers such as Huawei and Oppo etc, Samsung needs to attract the people with mid-rangers, with the launch of S9 mini Samsung might capture the market gap they are missing out.

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo aka Galaxy J7 (2018) was spotted on Geekbench, where it scored nearly 1199 points in the single-core test and 3803 points in the multi-core test.

If you own a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge, it could be time for an upgrade.

Recently, Samsung Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ smartphones got the all necessary approval from Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that regulates interstate and worldwide communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable in the US.

Also happening Tuesday, President Trump will host the leaders of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania at the White House. Both sides said they haven't started preparations for the visit.

A Geekbench database entry from April 2 shows a Samsung smartphone with model number SM-G8750, along with some specs. Out of the box, it'll be powered by Android 8.0 Oreo. That's right, both the phone's back cover and battery are said to be user replaceable, prolonging the life of this presumably affordable mobile device.

Although it's been a while since Samsung launched an S mini device, the company has been diligently releasing S Active handsets since the Galaxy S4 era. The Japanese smartphone-maker has always come up with a compact variant of most of its flagships.

Also, the fact that the smartphone packs a Snapdragon 660 processor along with 4 gigs of RAM aligns perfectly with what we would expect from a mini variant of the Galaxy S9. That includes the OS it's going to run on and the model number too.

Samsung has confirmed the three-year-old flagship smartphone will no longer receive major Android operating system upgrades.
