Samsung SM-G9198 with SD 808 SoC shows up on Benchmark listing; could it be the Galaxy S6 Mini?
A new Samsung smartphone with the model number – Samsung SM-G9198 has been put through its paces on benchmark website, GFXBench. The Samsung SM-G9198 is tipped to the Samsung Galaxy S6 Mini (or at least a member of the Galaxy family) and is powered by the Snapdragon 808 processor, the same used on the LG G4. The choice of the hexa-core processor means it would be a power house.

LG has just only announced the LG G4 and almost immediately it already has two variants – the LG G4 Stylus and the LG G4c. So it is okay to believe the Samsung SM-G9198 is the Samsung Galaxy S6 Mini. A launch date shouldn’t be far off.
