Yes. It is a 737-800 fuselage with 737-900 wings with raked wingtips and whole bunch of electronics in it.

image wished they used the raked on the new max.

There was a study into that, and they found the winglets offer a greater fuel burn reduction for the 737’s typical mission profile. The raked wingtips are great for longer flights, so the P-8 has them for long surveillance sorties, and the 777/787/747/767-400 has them for their medium to ultra long haul missions where the raked wingtips offer a better fuel burn reduction compared to the winglets.
