Good things never get old, the same can be said about Samsung‘s next flagship, Galaxy Note 9 which surfaced on Geekbench following yesterday’s leak which revealed it’s specifications. What’s interesting here is the fact that it appears to be a Snapdragon variant as it comes with the model number SM-N960 (the Exynos variant of the same was spotted in Geekbench earlier). The US variant of the Galaxy Note 8 came with the model number SM-N950U , so the SM-N960 definitely looks like it’s successor.
If you take a closer look at the listing you’ll notice that the device sports a mammoth 6GB RAM and Snapdragon 845 SoC, which is expected to be it’s setup in the US. On the software side of things, the phone will come with Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box along with Samsung’s customized UI on top.
According to the listing, the Galaxy Note 9 scored 2,411 points in the single core benchmark test while it sat on 8712 points in the multi-core benchmark tests. For a device worthy enough to be a part of the Samsung Galaxy Note series, the scores seem pretty weak, but then again this is probably a pre-production unit of the device, so we expect the scores to go up the ladder once the final improvised model arrives.
Earlier this month, an Exynos powered Galaxy Note 9 surfaced online, but had to be discarded as it was fake. But this one’s real and what more proof do you need other getting listed on Geekbench.
The device probably won’t be launched before August, as the company is expected to host one of it’s Unpacked events prior to the IFA. If yesterday’s image is to be believed, the device resembles it’s predecessor quite a bit. The Galaxy Note 9 will come with thin bezels above and below the display coupled with it’s trademark S-Pen.As mentioned above, the device will come in two variants, the Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810. Other than that, the device will come with IP certification for water and dust resistance, a large battery enough to keep the phone running for a day as well as wireless charging.
