First Note 9 benchmark reveals Infinity display, Android Oreo

First Note 9 benchmark reveals Infinity display, Android Oreo

While Samsung may have shattered all our dreams for a groundbreaking 7nm chipset in the Note 9 with a single press release saying "in the first quarter, earnings are expected to rise on the ramp-up of 2nd generation 10nm process products for this year’s flagship smartphones," all else is still in play for the phablet.

First Note 9 benchmark reveals Infinity display, Android Oreo
By all else we mean Samsung's second-gen Infinity Display like on the Galaxy S9, which sports even thinner bezels all around, higher brightness with lower reflections, and 20% thicker Gorilla Glass 5 on top of it for added protection. Why do we think the Note 9 will have an Infinity Display to begin with?

Well, its first benchmark may have just leaked, tucked inside the HTML5 browser test database. There, a device with a screen ratio of 18.5:9 is marked as Samsung SM-N960U. Given that the Note 8 is SM-N950, it's not hard to deduce that Samsung is hard at work on a Note 9 already, now that the Galaxy S9 announcement is already behind it. 

The Note 9 is laden with the Samsung Experience 8.0 browser, meaning that the phone will be running Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and, hopefully, with Project Treble on board, the update to Android 9.0 P, or whatever Google announces in May, won't be far behind.
