We have just seen the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, but Samsung isn’t stopping there. Another hotly anticipated device is the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and a benchmark has popped up on the internet showing a very respectable HTML5 compliant browser.
Thanks to the benchmark on HTML5Test, we know that Samsung will be keeping the 18.5:9 aspect ratio screen, The device identifier on the benchmark page shows the model tested has the model number SM-960U. As the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is model number SM-950, it can be assumed that this is the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. The U suffix indicates that the model tested is the unlocked model.
The phone was running Android 8.0 with the Samsung Internet 8.0 browser running on board. The score of 522 points is also very good as Galaxy Note 8 with Samsung Internet 5.2 only scored 488 points out of 555 points. While this score is not indicative of the overall performance of the phone, we can expect an excellent internet experience using Samsung’s own browser on the phone.
We are still months away from the official launch. With Android P expected to be launched sometime middle of the year, we do hope that the Note 9 will be shipping with Android 9.0 rather than Android Oreo out of the box. We look forward to seeing more leaked benchmark of the stylus-wielding smartphone from Samsung.
