The handset is said to become with a Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM and Android Oreo out of the box, making it very much a mid–range handset.
While the name of the phone is not mentioned in the benchmark report, Chinese tech-watchers believe that it is indeed the Galaxy S9 Mini.
This would mark the first time in years that Samsung has offered a mini edition of its flagship phone.
The last time it did so was with the Galaxy S5 Mini.
The Galaxy S9 has been widely lauded as one of the best smartphones currently available, its impressive variable aperture camera and overall usability helping it to five-star reviews across the board.
A release date for the Galaxy S9 Mini is yet to be confirmed, although with mid–range rivals landing at regular intervals, it’s unlikely Samsung will wait too long before having it in stores.
The Korean company is said to be at work on a new Galaxy Note 9 handset too, with plans for a late summer launch.
