Back in May, we heard that a Samsung-made device with model number SM-G9198 would come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor (four ARM Cortex-A53, two ARM Cortex-A57 cores, and an Adreno 418 GPU) under the hood. Initially, it was believed that the device would be a Galaxy Mini of sorts, but, as it turns out, the device is actually a clamshell headed to China in the near future.
The SM-G9198 was spotted getting certification from TENAA, China’s US FCC equivalent and the source of accurate information on yet to be announced devices.
According to the listing, aside from the Snapdragon 808 CPU, the SM-G9198 sports dual 3.91 AMOLED screens with resolutions of 768 x 1280 pixels, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, a 5-megapixel selfie-centric front-facing camera, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB), LTE connectivity, and 2 GB of RAM. It measures 119.7 x 66.6 x 16.7 mm when closed and weighs in at 191 grams. It runs Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) out of the box.
Since the SM-G9198 has been approved by TENAA, the smartphone is likely to be a Chinese-exclusive. It is yet to be determined if the device will be available outside the country.
