It seems that Samsung wants to push the Galaxy Note 9 to the top. After some leaks revealed a revamped S Pen as well as other important improvements, the upcoming Samsung flagship has been spotted on Geekbench. The famous benchmarking platform has disclosed the main info regarding the hardware side of the phablet and it has left us surprised. According to Geekbench, the handset will be launched in a variant which would make it the first Samsung phone with 8 GB of RAM. Indeed, the Korean giant has never gone beyond 6 GB RAM for its flagships, and this means that the upcoming phablet may boast monster performances.
The variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 spotted on Geekbench is the European one as it features an octa-core Exynos 9810 with a max frequency of 2.8 GHz. U.S. and China will get a different version with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 inside. This debunks previous rumors which suggested that the 8 GB variant would only launch in Asia and markets outside of Europe. The phablet runs Android 8.1 Oreo and it has obtained impressive scores on Geekbench. The platform shows that it has scored 5162 points in single-core performance and 10704 points in multi-core, that is amazing. However, note that benchmarks are not everything to evaluate the real performance of a smartphone, so we still can not say whether or not it will be the bestperforming Android flagship.
A version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with 6 GB of RAM has been spotted on Geekbench as well, so the handset will probably launch in Europe in various configurations with different price tags. The benchmarking platform lists the device with the model number SM-N960F. According to latest leaks, the Note 9 will launch in at least five color variants: black, gray, purple, brown and blue. It will be officially announced during an event which will be held on August 9.
