Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note9 HTML5 Benchmark Shows An 18:9 Display, Android 8 and A 522/555 Point Score
Now that we're done with Samsung's Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, it's time to look at what other gadgets will launch in the flagship smartphone industry. As impressive as Samsung's keynote was, it's still hard to disguise the fact that this year's smartphones do not change many features over their predecessors. Not that we're surprised, since both of the S9s featured regularly on the rumor mill before their launch.
An important feature upgrade yet to make it to the mainstream is a virtual fingerprint sensor. For Samsung, rumors related to its adoption surfaced first for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Now, folks believe that this feature will appear on the Galaxy Note9, which is due later this year. Today, we've got more information for the smartphone. Take a look below for the details.
Samsung Galaxy Note9 Pops Up In Alleged HTML5 Test With 18:9 Aspect Ratio; Reveals Little Details
While Samsung prepared its keynote for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ well, it did not upgrade the lineup in an eye-catching manner. Last year's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ stole the show with their Infinity Displays. In all the glamor, most folks forgot that the rumor mill promised us another very important feature; a virtual, under-the-screen fingerprint scanner.
But 2017 came and went, without any mention. Now, as manufacturers turn their attention away from displays and cameras, we expect some serious effort made towards it. Patents already exist, and high-end companies will soon make the technology marketable. Some highly anticipated folks expect that the Galaxy Note9 will launch it into the market, claims which fail to impress if we're honest.
A Galaxy Note9 HTML5 test now comes to light, which shed details on the phablet's aspect ratio. The screen size 412 x 846, which if you're astute you'd have calculated already, comes out as 18:9. The device in today's test is running on Android Oreo and scores 522 out of 555 points. The Samsung Galaxy Note9 will launch somewhere around August. For the past couple of years, Samsung has chosen to focus more on the phablet than the first half's Galaxy S smartphones.
After all, Apple upgrades its iPhone lineup in H2 every year and Samsung does not like to give away all of the spotlight. The big question as we head to August is clear: Will we get virtual fingerprint recognition on the Galaxy Note9. Right now, don't expect it. But, things can change fast in the tech industry. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. We'll keep you updated on the latest.
