Galaxy Note 9 is reportedly codenamed 'Crown', Samsung might have a prototype in early 2018

With the Note 8 already comfortably resting inside the pockets of million of users, it's only natural and logical for Samsung to carefully plan its next moves. Aside from the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, this also puts the Galaxy Note 9 on the drawing board.
According to fresh new rumors, Samsung has already started early development of the Galaxy Note 9, which is reportedly codenamed "Crown" and is expected to arrive in late summer 2018, possibly in mid-August. The codename, in particular, doesn't provide any hints about the device and that's okay – we are content with knowing that Samsung has started planning out the next steps for its successful Note lineup.
This leak is originating from South Korean publications quoting a component supplier of Samsung, which is also claiming that the tech giant will be obtaining hardware components for a prototype of the Galaxy Note 9 in early 2018:
This means that it will take a lot of months before we could start believing all the rumors pertaining to the Note 9. In particular, this one is expected to feature a fingerprint scanner embedded under the display, but as usual, we will have to wait to find out.

Why do you need 4k on a phone?

@DRS1977. I'm fine with the regular fprint reader on the back as long as it's centered below the camera where my index finger naturally rests. The on-screen fprint reader is a cool gimmick but it wouldn't add any critical benefits or improvements to my everyday use experience. It's just another thing that could easily break when dropped and will cost more to replace.

The trade-off is not worth it atm, especially since VR isn't a heavily wanted/used feature on smartphones just yet so the reduction in battery life and performance wouldn't be worth it at the moment to most Sure you can than run the UI and stuff at lower resolution but than what's the point of having 4K display

@mikeskunt. "Sure you can than run the UI and stuff at lower resolution but than what's the point of having 4K display" The point is to use it only when you need it, which is during VR sessions, dummy! Most of the time when not using VR just kick it down to 1080p and voila, battery life remains unaffected. Of course if your shtty Notch Phone had 4K screens you iTards would be chizzing all over yourself to brag about it like you're doing now with OLED, wouldn't you?

One main reason I didn't considered note 8 besides the launch price is absence of 4K display I use gear vr on my note 5 to watch a movie during weekend. The note 8 with a display with even less ppi will be worse than note 5 in screen door effect. Note 9 should have 4k display considering Sony had 4k phone all the way back in 2015.

It’s funny how people use words like “beast” or “monster” to describe a smartphone of all things. In that case, I should feel intimidated when I see or use it but all I see is....a smartphone

Add the fingerprint scanner in the display and reduce the bezels (making the device shorter) and you'll have my money Samsung.

They can keep the bezels if they put quality front facing stereo speakers in them.
