Samsung Galaxy SM-8850: Rumored Features, Specifications

Going by the AnTuTu listing of the Samsung Galaxy SM-8850, it appears to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset. The chipset appears to be running at a frequency of 2.2GHz, and it utilises Kryo 260 CPU core and Adreno 512 GPU. It has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. The phone has managed to score 1,36,483 points in AnTuTu’s benchmark test, but it isn’t anything worth talking about since it’s just a higher mid-range chipset from Qualcomm.

The SM-8850 could be launched as the Galaxy S9 Mini and will feature a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display with a QHD+ resolution (2960×1440 pixels). Additionally, the handset will also have a higher-end variant with 6GB of RAM, and this information was revealed on Chinese telecom regulator authority TENAA’s website. The phone will have a dual-camera setup at its rear. The primary sensor will be of 12MP sensor, whereas the secondary shooter will have a resolution of 8 megapixels. Selfies and video calling will be handled by an 8-megapixel camera sensor at the front. The phone will come packed with a 3000mAh battery with support for fast charging.

At this point in time, we don’t have any additional information about the phone, and this includes its launch date, pricing, or release date. As the phone has cleared the TENAA certification in China, we can expect the phone to launch soon, maybe by the end of this month or by early next month. We would like to clarify that Samsung hasn’t launched a ‘Mini’ variant of its Galaxy S series flagship smartphone since the launch of the Galaxy S5 Mini. There were several rumours about the existence of the Galaxy S6 Mini and the Galaxy S7 Mini. So, there’s a possibility that the upcoming device could debut with an entirely new name. Stay tuned with us to learn more about the Samsung SM-8850.
