Galaxy Note 9 drops by the FCC before its official debut

Samsung is due to announce the Galaxy Note 9 very soon, but it’ll need to stop by the FCC for some official documentation before that can happen.

This particular device dropped by for registration with the model number SM-960F, which would continue the naming schemes of the SM-G950 Galaxy Note 8.

LTE bands, radios, and more

The F part of the model name means it’s most likely going to be an international model, so this particular documentation may not show every bit of potential carrier compatibility that you might want. It does confirm the basic stuff like a WiFi radio, Bluetooth, and MST for Samsung Pay, but come on, we didn’t really expect the phone to launch without that stuff.

Otherwise, there’s not much here. FCC filings don’t tend to list much about the phone itself, but we do already have an idea of what to expect. Alongside the signature S-Pen, there won’t be a notch, and we’re anticipating a larger 6.4-inch display with a massive battery and even faster wireless charging. It could also be Samsung’s first phone with a fingerprint sensor underneath the screen, but the leaked renderings make that seem pretty unlikely at this point.

The announcement shouldn’t be too far off, so keep your eyes out for any other last minute leaks before Samsung pulls the curtains back.
