Or an alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 9, that is. It’s a little too early to be reporting about the phone, but it seems the Korean big-screen flagship might have already been benchmarked, thus confirming some of its key specs — and the high scores the phone can achieve.
A purported Galaxy Note 9 unit with the model number SM-N960U has been identified on the Geekbench website. The listing reveals Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor at the helm, mated to 6GB of RAM and running Android 8.1 Oreo from the get-go. No surprises here. When the device in question is Samsung’s premium Note model, expect nothing but the best and latest hardware available on the market.
We’re probably looking at the US- or China-bound version of the Galaxy Note 9, hence the inclusion of a Snapdragon unit as opposed to Samsung’s own Exynos processor.
What’s more, the single- and multi-core benchmark scores are comparable to the numbers posted by the Snapdragon 845-based Samsung Galaxy S9+. The Plus version also has 6GB of RAM and runs Android Oreo.
The Galaxy Note 9 is said to sport a 6.4-inch OLED display, though an under-screen fingerprint sensor similar to the one found in the Vivo APEX and Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS might not be on the cards for the time being.
It has been reported by the Korean media that Samsung will likely start making the OLED panels for the phone this month, or two months earlier than usual. This suggests the Note 9 could arrive as early as July or August, with Samsung speeding up its upgrade cycle intentionally to preempt the announcement of the next iPhones in September.
