Rumours regarding the Samsung’s next big release, the Galaxy Note 9 seem to be never-ending. Several months ago we saw the device making an appearance on Geekbench. The benchmarking website, at that time, had shown the handset using an old Exynos 9810 System-on-Chip (SoC). Well, as the possible launch date of the smartphone August 24 is now inching closer, Samsung seems to have started testing the handset with the latest SoC.
As per the new Geekbench result, the Galaxy Note 9 packed with the new Exynos 9820 SoC shows increased performance as it has now managed to score 4,089 and 12,246 points respectively in the single-core and multi-core tests.

Compared to the earlier results while packing an Exynos 9810 SoC, we can see much better outcomes this time as opposed to in previous tests where the device only managed to achieve 2,737 and 9,064 points respectively in the benchmark. The new results show the Galaxy Note 9 packing a 4GB of RAM and running Android 8.0 Oreo including the 4GB RAM variant. The South Korean smartphone maker also plan to release the 6GB RAM model. The handset is pegged to be made available in 64GB/128GB/256GB storage options. Samsung may even release the smartphone with 512GB storage which will be available in the Korean and other limited markets only.

The other rumoured specs of the device includes 6.3 inches Super AMOLED display with QHD+resolution (2960×1440 pixels) resulting in an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. In some countries we will see the smartphone making use of either a Snapdragon 845 or Snapdragon 855 chip-set. The design of the handset, however, is said to be more like the Galaxy Note 8, except this time Samsung have repositioned the fingerprint sensor which will be located below the camera module.

Furthermore, in terms of imaging, the smartphone will no doubt make use of a 12MP dual camera setup, offering OIS for both the lenses. The device is also said to retain the Galaxy S9 hallmarks which will let it adjust the variable aperture ranging from f/1.7 and f/2.4. At the front, the smartphone is expected to sport an 8MP selfie camera with f/1.7 aperture lens. Powering the whole package would be a massive 4000mAh battery that will have wired as well as wireless charging support.
