Samsung is gearing up to launch its new flagship smartphone — Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Now, according to the latest reports, the company could launch a variant of Note 9 with 8GB RAM and 512GB internal storage.
Previously, it was reported that the Galaxy Note 9 will be available in different variants, having 6GB RAM and three options in terms of storage — 64GB, 128GB, ad 512GB. Now, the latest report also hints at 8GB RAM model with 512GB storage.
However, it is not clear if the 8GB RAM and 512GB storage model will be available in limited markets only or the company is planning to introduce it globally. However, we are expecting that initially, it will be available in select markets only.
Several reports have indicated that the Galaxy Note 9 won’t have major changes in terms of design compared to its predecessor. The smartphone is expected to feature a 6.4-inch QHD+ resolution supporting S-AMOLED Infinity Display that delivers an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.
Rumors have indicated that the Galaxy Note 9 could be the first Samsung phone to feature an under-display fingerprint scanner. However, the leakster, who goes by the name “Ice Universe” claims that it is almost certain that the Note 9 will not be featuring the advanced biometric recognition feature.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is likely to be powered by Qualcomm‘s flagship Snapdragon 845 processor and in some regions, it is expected to be powered by the company’s own Exynos 9810 chipset. The phone is expected to be fuelled by a 3,850mAh or 4,000mAh battery that will be enabled with 9V / 2A charging.
Both variants — one with SD845 SoC and another with Exynos 9810 were spotted on benchmarking platform. The Exynos variant scored 2737 points in the single-core test while the multi-core test score is 9064 points. The score is slightly higher than the 2190 and 8806 points scored by the Snapdragon 845 variant.
Further, the Geekbench listing of the smartphone has confirmed that it will come with 6GB RAM and will be running on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box. We are expecting that Samsung will change the position of the fingerprint sensor and move it to a more convenient position.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is also expected to launch early this year. There are reports that the company could launch the smartphone in July this year and the latest information indicates that the launch could take place on 29th July. However, there’s no official confirmation from Samsung yet.
