Samsung Galaxy Note 9 spotted on HTML5 test

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Samsung has two flagship series launches each year. One of them, the Galaxy S9 just launched at MWC predictably. The other one is the redeemed Note series. Samsung will launch the ninth generation of the Note series this year, isn’t that astonishing? Both the Galaxy S and Note series have come so far and it really shows in the design and hardware of the handsets. Now, we’re catching our first glimpse of the Galaxy Note 9 due to launch sometime in the second half of this year.

By first glimpse, we don’t mean an actual physical look, we mean a benchmark spotting. The handset was spotted on HTML5 running Android 8.0 Oreo. The device had a model number SM-N960U which is obviously a number that resembles the Galaxy Note 8 (SM-N950). Also, this is the US variant of the series that will most likely come with the Snapdragon 845 SoC.

As for the test itself, we get almost no idea as to its hardware but we do know it has an 18.5:9 aspect ratio display. That is known by the listed resolution 412×846. Of course, this is not the full resolution but just a part of it shown in the test.

The Galaxy Note 7 came with Android 8.1 out of the box and the Galaxy Note 9 will also presumably come with Android 8.1 but that isn’ reflected in the benchmark as it seems too early for Sammy.

The Note series will surely sport top draw hardware and specs but we might miss out on the in-display fingerprint reader, according to current reports. We’re expecting Samsung to be on track for the Note 9 launch in August and eventual release in September.
