Samsung hasn’t formally revealed any plans of launching the Galaxy Note 9, but it is expected to be unveiled in the month of August. Only a few days ago, the phone was spotted on Geekbench, revealing its specifications and features. Now, an alleged U.S. variant of the smartphone has also been spotted on the benchmarking website, and this time it features slightly different scores.
The listing on Geekbench shows a Samsung handset with the model number SM-N960U. One of the reasons why we believe that this is the successor to the Galaxy Note 8, is because last year’s variant carried a model number of SM-N950U. Coming to the point, this is the second time the smartphone has been spotted on Geekbench. The scores this time are different, with the phone getting 2,411 in the single core test and 8,712 in the multi-core test. Last time around, it managed to log a score of 2,190 and 8,806 in the single core and the multi-core tests respectively.
The listing also reveals that the smartphone will be running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6GB of RAM. However, the global variant of the phone is said to feature an in-house Exynos processor, probably the Exynos 9810. It will also feature Android 8.1 Oreo.

Other than that, it is rumored to feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The phone is also expected to come with two 12-megapixel cameras at the back, similar to the ones on the Galaxy S9+. All of this is it said to be running on a 4,000mAh battery. The Note 9 is also rumored to be one of the first few phones to come with an under-display fingerprint sensor, but there is no way to confirm that. However, we now know that Samsung is testing the Note 9’s hardware, which means there is a possibility of a launch date coming soon.
