Samsung Galaxy Note fans have a lot to look forward to with the Note 9 that's incoming next month. We saw some leaked benchmarks turn up in late May and in those benchmarks the device was running an Exynos 9810 SoC but that's presumably for the non-US version of the device. More benchmarks have leaked and this time, the leak claims that the Note 9 in this run was powered by an even faster Exynos 9820 SoC.
The new leak shows a device carrying the Samsung SM-N960X designation. It scores a whopping 4,089 in the single core test and 12,246 for a multi-core score. These scores absolutely crush the scores we saw on the benchmark leak back in May when the Exynos 9810 version racked up 2,737 on single-core and 9,064 on multi-core.
The benchmark results show this Exynos 9820 device was running Android 8.0.0 and was using 3,483MB of RAM, or 4GB. The version that made the benchmark run back in May was backed by 6GB of RAM. These scores do show that the alleged Note 9 does just edge out iPhone X in multi-core performance at least. Apple will certainly have higher performance up its sleeves when the new iPhones launch in the coming months packing the A12 chipset, however.
Benchmarks aren't the only leaks we have seen for the Galaxy Note 9. Rumors late last month pointed to the smartphone using at least 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage (contrary to this test leak). It wouldn’t be outside the realm of possibility for Samsung to offer different storage and RAM amounts in different versions of the device, however. A leak a few days back shows us what the device would allegedly look like and it very closely resembled the Note 8. And yet another leak showed the back of the Note 9 and confirmed that it would have a Bluetooth S Pen. Time will soon tell, but meanwhile, the leaks keep coming.
