Abstract: Essential $ \aleph_0$-categoricity; i.e., $ \aleph_0$-categoricity in some full countable language, is shown to be a robust notion for strongly minimal compact complex manifolds. Characterisations of triviality and essential $ \aleph_0$-categoricity are given in terms of complex-analytic automorphisms in the simply connected case and correspondences in general. As a consequence, we point out that an example of McMullen yields a strongly minimal compact Kähler manifold with trivial geometry but which is not $ \aleph_{0}$-categorical, giving a counterexample to a conjecture of the second author and Tom Scanlon.
