The model number of the device, SM-N96OU, is most likely the variant of the Note 9 which will be sold in North America. As seen in the benchmarks, unsurprisingly the Note 9 will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC which was first introduced in the S9 phones. Onboard memory for the SM-N96OU seems to be the same 6 GB as seen on the Note 8.

On the software end, we can see that the Note 9 will come with Android 8.1 out-of-the-box. Considering that Samsung has a bad history of providing timely software updates, it is refreshing to see that the Note 9 will come with the latest Android OS.
