The official launch of Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ was very well received at the Mobile World Congress this year. However, most industry savvy people believe that Samsung has already started working on a new product and that they already have the model designed.
Is this real?
While this may look like it is too soon for us to know, the leaked benchmark results show that the Galaxy Note 9 is already in the works. The information in these benchmark results showed a lot about Samsung’s new project.
What do we know so far?
For starters, the model listed on these result is SM-960U. We already know that the number assigned to the Galaxy Note 8 is SM-950 which seems to support the idea that this is indeed the Note 9.
There is exciting news for those interested in seeing more of Samsung’s Infinity Display. The benchmark result showed that the screen of the Galaxy Note 9 is 18:5:9 which a suitable size for such a display. Some of you may wonder what is so different with this new display. Well, it is brighter and it reflects images less than other screens. Also, it looks like the phone is going to be launched with Android 8.1 Oreo, if we are to understand that it will be launched in the second half of this year.
People are speculating that the new phone is going to have some of the key features that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have. It is speculated that Samsung may install the Exynos 9810 for some markets while the rest of the phones will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
Last but not least, in 2017 it was speculated that the Galaxy note 8 will have a fingerprint sensor that would use a Synaptics Clear ID technology. However, this has not happened yet but it speculated that the Galaxy Note 9 will have this feature.
