Two variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 receive certification in China

According to images that were published today, it would appear that a couple of Chinese variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 have received certification in the country. The China Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (CMIIT) gave the thumbs up to the Samsung SM-N9600 on March 21st of this year. That was followed up with approval for the SM-N9608 on April 24th, 2018, just a few days ago. Unfortunately, the documentation for both models does not include images or specs.

Last month, we passed along a rumor that unlike last year's Galaxy Note 8, which was launched in September, Samsung is looking to release the Galaxy Note 9 in July or August. This way, Sammy can avoid a conflict with the expected trio of 2018 iPhones that should be introduced and launched in September.

Last month, the SM-N960U went through the Geekbench benchmark test; if legit, the test revealed that the U.S. and Chinese versions of the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform. Elsewhere, we expect to see the Exynos 9810 SoC under the hood. The bench mark test listed 6GB of RAM inside, with Android 8.1 pre-installed. We expect the Note 9 to have the same two 12MP cameras on back as the ones found on the Galaxy S9+. Despite earlier denials, there is still a chance that we will see a under-display fingerprint scanner on the phone. We also could see a 4000mAh battery included, and a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.
