Samsung is going to launch another flagship smartphone in the second half of this year and we're already hearing rumors and reports about the Galaxy Note 9. We'll also be seeing a lot more of the new flagship on benchmark and certification websites in the near future. Speaking of certification, The China Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has certified both Galaxy Note 9 variants that are destined for the People's Republic.

Galaxy Note 9 variants for China

We already know that the Galaxy Note 9 carriers model number SM-N960. The China Ministry of Industry and Information Technology first certified the SM-N9600 last month and it has now certified the variant with model number SM-N9608 which means that both variants of the Galaxy Note 9 that Samsung will officially launch in China have now been certified.

The listings for both handsets don't include any information about the specifications of the Galaxy Note 9. No images or renders were found either so it may be a while before some of that surfaces online.

The Galaxy Note 9 was recently spotted on the Geekbench website where it was revealed that this handset will likely ship with Android 8.1.0 Oreo out of the box. As far as the specs are concerned, expect the same Snapdragon 845/Exynos 9810 processor pairing as the Galaxy S9 with possibly 6GB of RAM. It may also feature the dual camera system from the Galaxy S9+ which means it will offer features such as variable aperture and super slow-motion video recording.

There's no conclusive evidence as yet to support rumors that the Galaxy Note 9 is going to be Samsung's first device with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Samsung has long been rumored to be working on this technology but it remains to be seen whether or not it debuts with the Galaxy Note 9.

Some recent reports have also suggested that the Galaxy Note 9 might be launched ahead of schedule just like the Galaxy S9 was earlier this year. The decision to launch the Galaxy S9 earlier paid dividends for Samsung so an early launch for the Galaxy Note 9 is certainly within the realm of possibility.
