Samsung has confirmed that it’s going to unveil the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9. The new flagship handset is now racking up the required certifications across the globe which are required before the device can be released in major markets. Samsung has now secured the Galaxy Note 9 China release as the device has picked up its 3C certification.
The 3C certification is necessary for handsets that are to be sold in China. The People’s Republic is one of the most lucrative smartphone markets on the planet and one where Samsung has promised to do better. The Federal Communications Commission of the United States has already certified the Galaxy Note 9.
Galaxy Note 9 China release
The Galaxy Note 9 model number SM-N9608 has been certified by the agency. The listing mentions that the device supports power input of 9V DC/1.67A or 5V DC/2A with fast wireless charging. It has support for the country’s TD-LTE bands.
The listing doesn’t reveal any further information about the device but we know from an early hands-on that it doesn’t look all that different compared to the Galaxy Note 8. The Exynos 9810/Snapdragon 845 chips do deliver generational performance gains and the 4,000mAh battery is said to be good for up to 25 hours of nonstop video playback.
Samsung is expected to introduce an 8GB RAM + 512GB internal storage configuration for the Galaxy Note 9 in select markets and it’s possible that China might be one of the markets where it sells the model. It has also been said that the base model will now feature 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage.
The company is yet to confirm pricing and release date information for the Galaxy Note 9. We’ll find that out on August 9 when it officially unveils the Galaxy Note 9.
