The N960FXXE0ARB7 and N960FXXU0ARC5 firmware builds of the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 have started circulating around two weeks earlier than the firmware for its predecessor. Hence, the rumor mill is speculating that the Galaxy Note 9 may debut earlier this year.
Compared to the predecessor Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ were launched much earlier this year. Now that the firmware files of the Galaxy Note 9 have already surfaced, it is being speculated that Samsung’s next-generation phablet may get unveiled at the beginning of August.
Codenamed as Crown, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to arrive with Infinity Display 2.0 that is available on the Galaxy S9 duo. Like the predecessor, it may feature the same-sized 6.3-inch S-AMOLED screen with 18.5:9 aspect ratio. It is expected to be available in Exynos 9810 and Snapdragon 845 chipset variants.
Like the Note 8, its successor is expected to arrive with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB storage choices. Recent reports have claimed that the Note 9 won’t be featuring an in-screen fingerprint scanner. It may arrive with a significantly improved dual camera setup than the Note 8.
