Samsung 28 May
Samsung, to beat Apple, is said to be bringing its Galaxy Note 9 a month early and as the launch date is approaching the phone is going through various certifications. As per reports, a device bearing the serial number SM-N960F has been certified by the Federal Communications Commission and it is said to be Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy Note 9.
The letter “F” in the serial number stands for the International variant of Android Flagship that is due to launch soon. Also, it is worth noticing that this is the same series that Samsung uses for its Note line of phones. For an example, Galaxy Note 8 had a serial number SM-N950, for the Note 7 it was SM-N930, while the Note 5 was SM-N920. Hence it’s a clearly indicates that the Galaxy Note 9 may have gotten certified by FCC.
The unlocked variant of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 that will be launched in the US may carry a serial number SM-N960U and the serial number SM-N-960F may come with Samsung’s in-house processor Exynos 9810 and this may not launch in the US at all.
