The G9198 features a 16MP f/1.9 main camera with a LED flash, a 5MP f/1.9 front snapper, LTE connectivity, a heart-rate sensor, dual-SIM option, and a 2,020 mAh battery. The two cameras seems to be the same as on the Galaxy S6, S6 edge and Note5.

The G9198 model number was previously rumored as the Galaxy S6 mini, so we ca now discard the S6 mini purported specs. The Snapdragon 808 surely sounded as a good option for the mini fella, but we’ll have to wait for the official announcement. Maybe we’ll see it at IFA next month, who know.
