The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been making the rounds on the web for quite some weeks now. We know that the S pen passed by FCC revealing the presence of Bluetooth. The Note 9 appeared in leaked case renders confirming the repositioning of the fingerprint scanner. Another report has speculated that the Note 9 will be available in five different colours, black, grey, purple/violet/lilac, brown and blue. The latest report reveals a benchmark listing on Geekbench with model number SM-N960F, confirming the presence of an 8GB variant.
An 8GB variant is unheard of in Samsung phones, making this the first Samsung phone to sport the huge chunk of RAM. Another notable detail is the presence of the Samsung Exynos 9810 clocked at 2.8GHz. The Snapdragon 845 is reportedly intended for the US and China markets while the Exynos 9810 will probably see a launch in Europe and other Asian countries. An earlier report speculated that the 8GB variant would only be available in Asia and markets outside Europe. But this report debunks the said speculation. The phablet sports Android 8.1 Oreo and has scored 5162 points in single-core and 10704 points in multi-core tests.
There are reports that speculate the existence of a 6GB variant which is expected to launch in Europe. Taking all the reports into account, Europe will probably see a few variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Samsung has confirmed that the Note 9 will be unveiled on the 9th of August. While benchmarks are anything but a proof of real-life performance, it’ll be interesting to see how the latest phablet by Samsung holds its ground. Stay tuned for more!
