Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has popped up at Geekbench. It has made an appearance in their Exynos variant. The Snapdragon variant was already spotted two months ago at Geekbench. Now the Exynos variant has appeared with the same specs.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Exynos & Snapdragon variant
Interestingly, the Exynos variant has scored higher than the Snapdragon variant. This is quite a happy news for most markets because the Exynos variant usually hits majority market.
The Exynos variant of Galaxy Note 9 comes with 6GB RAM and scored 2737 for the single-core score and 9064 for multi-core. The multi-core variant scores better than Galaxy S9+ variant while the single core scores much lesser than it should; it states that Samsung hasn’t optimized it’s software yet.
The Snapdragon variant used in Note 9 would be Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset. It’ll be coupled with 6GB RAM (at least).
Exynos is the homegrown chipset of Samsung. They are working to make it run as smoothly as possible. However, they are not working as much on Snapdragon variant.
The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. The expected launch date of the device is around the same time as the new Android P. It will be interesting to see when will Samsung roll out Android P to Note 9.
The latest leak on Samsung Galaxy Note 9 suggests that the device will come with 512GB storage. NO! we are not talking about external storage. It’s unusual that this storage would be available for Note 9 base variants but to know that you have the option to grab such a massive storage with a couple of bucks is always interesting!
This is the internal storage with the usual add-on external storage space via microSD card. For the external slot, there’s a rumor picked up by Forbes which suggest that the device will come up to 2TB external expandable storage.
Note 9 looks quite promising. What do you think?
