    Other than the iPhone 8 , Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact and their predecessors there haven't been many high-end compact phones in recent years, but Samsung could be about to add to the list with a Samsung Galaxy S9 Mini. Known leaker I ice universe has said as much on Weibo , adding that the screen is less than 5 inches and that it has a "full screen", which suggests that it will have minimal bezels and a super-widescreen 18.5:9 aspect ratio, just like the Samsung Galaxy S8 range.
