It seems like Samsung may be working on another high-end smartphone alongside the Galaxy Note 8. A new smartphone with the model name Samsung SM-G9600 has been spotted on Geekbench. Reports suggest that this might be the Galaxy S8 Mini/Lite smartphone. The most interesting part of the listing is the chipset. It is a Qualcomm chipset with the model name as sdm840, which is speculated to be the Snapdragon 840 chipset, which hasn’t been announced yet. A leak on Weibo a few months ago had suggested that Qualcomm was changing its naming convention from ‘MSM’ to ‘SDM’. 

It should also be noted that the chipset sports a quad-core configuration and not an Octa-core configuration that was used in the Snapdragon 835. It is possible that the Snapdragon 840 might be an improved version of the Snapdragon 820/821 platform that were unveiled last year. 

Coming back to the Geekbench listing, the Samsung SM-G9600 runs Android Nougat v7.1.2 and features 4GB of RAM. The device scored 1782 in the single core test and 4212 in multi core test. 

Earlier this month, it was reported that Samsung is working on a smaller version of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. The device was tipped to have a smaller, 5.3-inch display, with a 18.5:9 ratio. It was said to offer the same ergonomics as a 4.7-inch device. The phone was tipped to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset, not a Snapdragon 835.
