The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has a codename

Last month, we told you that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 might be launched earlier than usual this year, perhaps by July or August. The Note 9 could carry a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display, with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. The Snapdragon 845 mobile platform or the Exynos 9810 chipset should be under the hood, depending on location, and we could see 6GB of RAM inside along with 128GB of native storage. A 4,000mAh battery will keep the lights on, and we just might see the same dual camera setup (12MP +12MP) used on the Samsung Galaxy S9+. And the 8MP front-facing selfie snapper found on the Galaxy S9+ just might be part of the Galaxy Note 9 as well.

The latest information about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was disseminated by tweet today from star leaker Evan Blass. According to Evan, the codename of the Galaxy Note 9 (wait for it) is Crown. And that is the perfect codename for the phone that will be the King of Samsung's 2018 smartphone lineup.

There is still much that we don't know about the Galaxy Note 9. For one thing, we could still see it hit the market with an under-display fingerprint scanner. Over the next few weeks, we should start to see a pick up in leaks about this phone, all of which just might explain why the Crown codename fits this device so well.

Agreed. It's both annoying and childish. Everyone has different needs so there's no such thing as a king/best phone/whatever.

I may skip, and get the Note 10. The Note 8 is so far ahead of what's currently out, I see no need to make a jump.

If the iPhone X Plus / Pro is real and if Apple really goes into the direction of productivity for this iPhone, then Apple will take the crown in this product segment in the first attempt. Why? Because Apple has much more software know how than Samsung and Apple can carry over many features from the iPad to iPhone X Plus / Pro

Yea, but they're not so......... And even if it were to happen, Samsung has the phablet game on lock.

I think samsung is feeling the heat in the upper flagship market. S9 is a mild hit. The pricing is killing them, what with the aggressive pricing of xiaomi, oppo, vivo and asus. I miss the samsung pricing during the eras of s6 and earlier. I think they should go back to aggressive pricing. I am no isheep, but i think the upper segment of the market belongs to iphone and iphone alone.

Samsung flagships normally cost more to make than any other Android or iphones. If Samsung priced their phones the same as the Chinese phones, they would probably be bankrupt long time ago.

S9 costs less than iX to be made. I dont remember if s9+ costs less too.

'I am no isheep, but i think the upper segment of the market belongs to iphone and iphone alone.' If premium to you is about brand recognition then sure, but I pay premium for all the functionality i need in a smart phone without the restrictions that iPhones come with which both the s and note series give me.

iPhone does sell well but is also seeing the pain of pricing. Sales are also down for them. Samsung and apple is both over pricing their self slowly out of the market.

Crown means notch. Screen with crown = screen with notch. Cheers!

No matter the nickname .. Note 9 and iphone 9 will be just regular phones near XZ2 Premium. You'll be shocked to see what it can do..

Because is not best seller... Samsung and Apple are. If I had a tech site I would say only good stuff about both , otherwise I would lose readers.

if it is a S9+ plus S pen, i will reconsider buying it.

It'll be that plus more, playa. Imagine everything great about the S9+ (if you like it) but even better plus all of the S-Pen features.
