August is just a month ahead, and Samsung seems to be putting some effort into getting its upcoming Galaxy Note 9 released earlier in the next month. After some important details about the functionalities of the new S-Pen leaked, as well as a glimpse of the device design through a case render, the new king of phablets has paid a visit to FCC – The United States regulatory agency.
This specific model will be exclusive to Uncle Sam country, and as usual, will pack the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. The standard model number of the phone is SM-N960U, but the unlocked version will carry the SM-N960U1 label. Furthermore, the FCC documents also reveal an illustration showing the agency’s name engraved on the rear bottom of the Galaxy Note 9.
The filing also reveals the complete list of LTE bands supported by Samsung’s flagship. Worth noting that all major U.S. carriers will be selling the smartphone through contract plans.
