Samsung Pulls The Plug On Updates For Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge

Sandra Phillips | 04 April, 2018, 12:29

There is no information available on the other specifications of the Galaxy S9 mini, however, it is speculated to arrive with Infinity Display design like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.

And Samsung seems to have acknowledged that. We've been reported in the last couple of weeks about various Galaxy J7 models that may have similar specs but different names, so many of you probably know about its existence already.

Until recently, the devices had been updated with the latest patches on a month-by-month basis, now owners of the 2015 handsets are faced to having to update to the all-new and highly rated Galaxy S9.

The Samsung Galaxy A6+ earlier appeared on Geekbench with model number SM-A605G.

As per the entry, the Samsung smartphone will run Android 8.0.0 Oreo, which is pretty obvious for a device that is not manufactured by Apple. It received 739 points in single-core test and 3469 points in multi-core test.

Judging by the specs, the SM-G8750 seems to be a premium mid-range offering, but Samsung might decide to make some changes in terms of the specs before it launches the device.

As such, buying old smartphones is only really recommended - by us here at SlashGear - when said phone is still getting security updates from its manufacturer. It can be noted that the South Korean tech company released a mini version for the Galaxy S3, S4 and S5. Both phones match up with 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB storage options, but the Samsung phone also has a 256GB edition, and a memory card slot for adding more.

As if by tradition in Samsung's case, there's a rumored "mini" variant for its flagship in 2018 too. This year, too, it launched the Xperia XZ2 Compact featuring a Snapdragon 845 processor, same as the Xperia XZ2 flagship. Samsung's next high-profile launch event is likely to be held around IFA Berlin, which is usually held in August or September.

That would seem to suggest humbler specs than what the Galaxy J7 (2017), aka SM-J730F, now offers, although the metal-made 5.5-incher unveiled back in June 2017 settled for a single 13MP rear camera. However, that doesn't mean a new mid-ranger won't feature at the event.
