Meizu Note 9 With Snapdragon 675 SoC and 6GB RAM Appears on Geekbench Ahead of Launch


Chinese smartphone maker Meizu is set to introduce the Note 9 budget Android smartphone in its home market later this week. Just days before its official introduction in China, the smartphone has popped up on the popular Geekbench benchmarking platform.

Meizu Note 9 Will Feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC

The Meizu Note 9 Geekbench listing confirms the smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 11nm octa-core processor under the hood. This is certainly not surprising as Meizu CEO Jack Wong had announced back in January that the smartphone will be powered by the Snapdragon ‘6150’ chipset. Apart from the Snapdragon 675 chipset, the Geekbench listing also confirms the smartphone will ship with 6GB of RAM and run on the Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box.

As for the benchmarking scores, the Meizu Note 9 scored 2,404 points in the single-core test and 6,027 points in the multi-core test. Both the scores are more or less in line with what you would expect from a smartphone running on a Snapdragon 675 chipset. The Meizu Note 9 was also spotted on the TENAA website recently, revealing a vertically-stacked dual-camera setup at the rear and a waterdrop notch display on the front. While the complete hardware specifications of the Meizu Note 9 have not been listed on TENAA website yet, the certification agency did confirm that the smartphone will have a 6.2-inch display and pack a 3900mAh capacity battery. Rumors suggest the smartphone will have a 48MP + 5MP dual-camera setup on the back and a 20MP selfie snapper on the front. The Meizu Note 9 will also include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

While the official confirmation will only arrive on March 6, it is rumored that the Meizu Note 9 may be priced similarly to the Redmi Note 7 in China. The Redmi Note 7 was launched in China in January this year. While the Redmi Note 7 is powered by a less powerful Snapdragon 660 chipset, the Redmi Note 7 Pro runs on a Snapdragon 675.
