Speculations have started to increase after it was revealed that Samsung may launch a smaller version of the flagship Galaxy S9 soon. To further fuel the speculations, a Samsung Galaxy S9 like device with Snapdragon 660 chipset and 4GB RAM was spotted at the beginning of this month on GeekBench benchmarking website. People started to call it Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini as the new model came with a generic name of SM-G8750 and featured similar specifications to the Galaxy S9 albeit on a smaller scale.
But if the latest rumors are to be believed, the smartphone may not be named Galaxy S9 Mini. A new listing on LaunchStudio has suggested that the device could be named as Dream-Lite instead. However, this recent revelation also leads to speculations that the device may not be a part of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S series at all. It may be a completely different phone from the company that may be launched separately.
The upcoming model with model number SM-G8750 that was revealed on the GeekBench listing comes with a “CN China” Bluetooth certification that expects us to believe that the smartphone may be a China exclusive model. The only common aspect of the two devices is the processor as both the listings have shown the presence of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset under the hood of the device.
Also, the screen of the device was expected to be QHD+ as per the previous report but now it seems that Samsung may pack a lower resolution screen in the device. It may come with a 1080 X 2220 resolution screen with a much lower aspect ratio than expected. As far as the other features go, the device is expected to arrive with 4GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage space. It is likely to run on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo flavor out of the box.
When compared to the flagship Samsung Galaxy S9, the phone may not seem to be great but the specs are not too bad either considering it is a budget smartphone from the company.
