Samsung has announced its latest set of flagship smartphones at Mobile World Congress 2018. And one week after the conference, we finally have our first glimpse of the next Galaxy Note.
As early as now, there are already leaked information which purports the real existence of this sequel to the Galaxy Note 8, albeit in a different form than usual—a benchmark result which sought to measure the device’s performance on several known aspects.
Although the device in subject did not necessarily disclose its full name as the “Galaxy Note 9” per se but rather the alias “SM-N960U” similar to US’ Galaxy Note 8, it is telling at least that the device is a Galaxy Note 8 or an upgraded version of it. The said reference was an HTML benchmark as posted at Niels Leenheer’s HTML Test website.
Out of the maximum score of 555 points, the said benchmark showed a result of 522 which is 5 points better than the recently benchmarked Galaxy S9.
At this point, no one apart from the pertinent people in the development team of the Galaxy Note 9 would know what this device entails in both hardware and software. The possibility is strong that it might run on Android Oreo, be powered by a Snapdragon 845 CPU, and have an aspect ratio display of 18:9 out of the box.
