Samsung Galaxy Note9 runs its first benchmark

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9+ have only been official for a few days now, but even so the leaks have already moved on to the Korean company’s next big thing: the Galaxy Note9. Despite the fact that it’s only expected to be announced in late summer, a prototype has already been spotted in a benchmark’s database.

We’re talking about HTML5test, which handily reveals that the Note9 will unsurprisingly sport an Infinity Display of its own. The listed resolution is 412×846, but note that this benchmark always contains fractions of the actual resolution of any phone. What’s more important here is the aspect ratio, which is slightly taller than 18:9 (and that makes sense because Samsung’s Infinity Displays have so far had an 18.5:9 ratio).

The benchmark run also tells us that the prototype Note9 is running Android 8.0 Oreo at this time, once again surprising no one (that’s the version of the OS powering the S9 duo too). The model number of the phone is SM-N960, and since the Note8 is SM-N950 it means that Samsung will keep incrementing that number by 10 with each new generation. The SM-N960U that got benchmarked is the variant headed for US shores.

Back in February we found out that the Note9 wouldn’t be sporting an in-display fingerprint sensor like the vivo X20 Plus UD, while last year its codename was revealed to be Crown, for what that’s worth.
