Samsung has launched its first flagship of 2018, the Galaxy S9/S9+ just last month in MWC 2018 in Barcelona. Now, the company is gearing up to launch its next Galaxy Note series flagship — the Galaxy Note 9. In the first benchmarks leak today, the key specifications of the Galaxy Note 9 have been revealed.

The benchmark listing of Galaxy Note 9 revealed some of the key specs of it. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC which was first introduced in the S9 phones.  Also, the Galaxy Note 9 memory will pack the same 6 GB RAM as seen on the Galaxy Note 8. On the software end, the Note 9 will come with Android 8.1 Oreo.

As mentioned, the Galaxy Note 9 will be running Android 8.1 Oreo. The Geekbench test shows that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 comes with model number SM-N960U and is powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset, aided by 6 GB of RAM. Also, this must be the North American version of the handset, as other markets will probably get an Exynos 9810 powered Galaxy Note 9.

According to the benchmark test, the Galaxy Note 9 gets multi-core benchmark score of 8806, and a single-core score of 2190. These numbers are great in comparison to the Snapdragon 845-based Galaxy S9+, and lower than the Exynos 9810-based Galaxy S9. So, the phone’s processor performance doesn’t seem to be overly impressive.

Also, as rumored, the new Note 9 could become the company’s first smartphone to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner, while also packing a larger battery compared to the Note 8. We’re also expecting camera enhancements, and the iconic S Pen stylus-related improvements as well.

Samsung will likely announce the Galaxy Note 9 in the same timeline when it did Galaxy Note 8 last year i.e. in August.
