The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been spotted on Geekbench if the latest reports are correct. The benchmark listing reveals that the device will come with excellent key specifications and even comes with top-end benchmark scores.
The Galaxy Note 9 variant in the US is expected to come with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. And safely to expect, the global version will house the Exynos 9810 SoC which has already been on the global Galaxy S9 as well as Galaxy S9+ variants.
According to the benchmarking listing via Geekbench, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy device comes with the model number SM-N960U. This further indicates that the listing is of none other than that of the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 due to the fact that last year Galaxy Note 8 carried the model number SM-N950U for the variant in the US.
The listing reportedly highlights the fact that the Galaxy Note 9 variant will have a Snapdragon 845 SoC that is going to be coupled with a whopping 6GB of RAM. On the software front, this Samsung device runs the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system, out of the box. The device has scored outstandingly with a single-core score of 2,190 and secured an 8,806 on multi-core score test.
Both single, as well as multi-core scores, are comparable with Snapdragon 845-powered Galaxy S9+ which got 2,390 scores in single-core and 8,420 scores in multi-core.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is highly expected to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. But as of now, no confirmation has been given to us, so we cannot presumably say what the South Korean giant is going to implement on its upcoming phablet. However, ut KGI Securities analyst named Ming-Chi Kuo has earlier reported that the company might not include an under-display fingerprint sensor and will hence avoid technical issues with the incorporation. But Samsung loyalists are highly envisioning the Note 9 to get embedded with an in-display biometric. Until official confirmation, one may stick to us here.
