Details about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9
are slowly trickling down via tips, renders and leaked benchmarks to such an extent, that now we are able to confirm the screen aspect ratio with near certainty, courtesy of the HTML5 browser test.
A certain "Samsung SM-G960F" has made a pass there, running on Android 8.0 Oreo fumes, and it is none other than the successor of the SM-G950F, which in turn is the international codename of the Galaxy S8
. The benchmark clearly lists a screen aspect ratio that is equivalent to 2.05:1, or exactly what the S8, S8+
and Note 8
sport, so Samsung is apparently aiming to stick the Infinity Display design around for one more year at least.
The phone is running Samsung's newest browser version, 6.2
, which, coupled with the rumored Exynos 9810 chipset
, would explain the rather high 511 browsing benchmark score achieved - so far, the average mobile score achieved by devices running the 5.4
version of Samsung's browser, has been 490. About the only real mystery left regarding the S9 now is the eventual camera kit, and its photographic chops.
