While a recent rumor claims that a top-of-the-line variant of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 might hit the market with 8 GB RAM and 512 GB storage onboard, the Samsung SM-N960N model that has just surfaced on Geekbench only sports an Exynos 9810 processor and 6 GB RAM.

Last Friday, a Samsung device that seems to be a variant of the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 flagship surfaced on Geekbench. Although most technical details are missing, we know for sure that the Samsung SM-N960N unit listed in the benchmark database runs Android 8.1 Oreo, has 6 GB of memory, and is powered by Samsung's Exynos 9810 processor.

One day later after the aforementioned arrival of the SM-N960N at Geekbench, popular leakster Ice universe posted the following message on Twitter: "If you are lucky, you will see 8GB RAM and 512GB ROM Galaxy Note9". If this turns out to be true, it would be a double first for the Samsung Galaxy lineup: the first Galaxy flagship to feature 8 GB of memory and also the first one to sport 512 GB of internal storage. 

The only problem with the rumor above is that Samsung might not launch the top-of-the-line Galaxy Note 9 — or at least this model will not be available in the first wave after the introduction of the new handset. Anyway, those looking for a Galaxy Note 9 with a lot of storage space should keep in mind that Samsung plans to keep the microSD slot around with support for up to 512 GB of additional space.

These being said, remains to wait for the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. If everything works as planned, the event should take place before the end of August, when IFA 2018 is scheduled to kick off.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
