Samsung clamshell smartphone running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, Snapdragon 808 and 16MP camera


The whole world is busy with comments on the details of Galaxy S6 Edge + 5 and Galaxy Note, but it’s time to pay attention to something very important, which deserves your attention. Samsung China presented clamshell smartphone with Snapdragon 808 and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.


The device is G9198 and comes with two 3.9 – inch 768pSuper AMOLED touchscreen, Snapdragon 808 chip with six – core processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable.


G9198 includes 16MP f / 1.9 rear camera with LED flash, a front 5MP f / 1.9, a mobile network LTE. Both cameras seem to be the same as for Galaxy S6, S6 edge and Note 5.


G9198 model was rumored to be similar to the Galaxy S6 mini, so now we can safely dismiss these rumors. 808 Snapdragon certainly sounds like a good option for this mini jewel, but will have to wait for the official presentation that best – will probably be next month IFA.


Samsung G9198 is exceptional, but we most – probably will not see in other markets, except China, as usually happens with these niche devices. However, we hope that in time will be available in Europe.
