If it wasn't for the hawk-eyed research, fans would have been disappointed with the early Galaxy S9+ leak.
The South Korean technology company this month unveiled its all-new mobile processor, which is created to power top-of-the-line smartphones like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9, when they launch next year.
Samsung Galaxy A series is the mid-range premium one from the company with the A7, A5 and A3 usually being launched.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and its Galaxy S8 Plus sibling are still amongst the most powerful, and most popular smartphones on the planet, and according to a new rumor that just surfaced, Samsung could introduce a "Mini" variant of its next-gen Galaxy S-branded handset, the Galaxy S9.
Details of the phone were revealed on Weibo by famous Samsung leakster "Ice Universe".
The technology company also unveils its Isocell SLIM 2X7 image sensor, which offers "high resolution image sensors in small chip packages, delivering detailed pictures in low-light environments without a camera bump".
The modem is likely the same one as that Samsung introduced in June.
But the Galaxy A series does mirror the design of the S sries and we've seen it come with a metal and glass design like the S6 and S7.
Dubbed Live Focus, the feature lets you take bokeh shots to help the subject stand out.
Alongside the A5 (2018), the South Korean smartphone manufacturer is also working on the successor of this year's flagship phones - Galaxy S8 and S8+.
This new flagship will reportedly boast a foldable OLED display. However, there are contradictory reports are suggesting a January 2018 release date for these smartphones.
