Samsung is expected to launch its latest flagship smartphone – the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on August 9 at an event in NYC. The upcoming smartphone has now been certified by the US FCC (US Federal Communications Commission). The model that was certified is the SM-N960F, the international variant. The US exclusive variant should be labeled as SM-960U, going by Samsung’s most recent naming convention. To recall, Galaxy Note 8 had a serial number SM-N950, for the Note 7 it was SM-N930, while the Note 5 was SM-N920.
However, the FCC document does not reveal anything about the features and specifications of the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. It does only reveal the presence of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, and MST (the latter used for Samsung Pay).
In addition to an SM-N960F, the FCC mentions an SM-N960X and an SM-N960F/DS. The former is said to be the international variant while latter should be a dual SIM Galaxy Note 9 expected to be probably for Asia region.
From previous leaks, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected to sports a 6.4 (2960×1440 pixels) infinity display. It will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC (US market) / Exynos 9810 processor for other global markets. It will feature 6GB/ 8GB of RAM with 64GB/ 128GB/ 256GB of internal storage. There will be a 512GB storage variant as well which will be limited to China only. The smartphone will also reportedly support Bixby 2.0 and will be fuelled by 3850 mAh battery.
In terms of design, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will not much differ from its predecessor. Instead, we will see reduced bezels and the replacement of the side-mounted Fingerprint scanner to awkwardly sits below the horizontally aligned dual camera setup. Furthermore, we have also got some official looking renders of upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Enjoy the pictures below.
