Details of Samsung’s next–generation Galaxy Note 9 have appeared on the company’s official website, despite the device not being due to launch until August.
Eagle–eyed Samsung fans found mention of a handset codenamed SM-960U, the same number of a device found to have been benchmarked earlier this week.
That test showed a phone running the current build of Google Android, along with a multicore processor.
Previous rumours have suggested that the Galaxy Note 9 will come with a 6.3–inch screen, matching last year’s Galaxy Note 8, with the same resolution as the warmly reviewed Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
Questions remain as to whether Samsung will include an in–screen fingerprint scanner.
Gossip earlier this month from supply chain sources suggested that was likely, with suppliers said to be readying the tech and a final decision due to be made later this month.
Samsung will likely unveil the Galaxy Note 9 in late August, in keeping with previous launches, with an eye on seeing off competition from Apple’s revamped iPhone X range, due later in the autumn.
