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.

Bring back removable batteries for the note, or the line is dead to me. And I've owned 3 different versions of them, 4 total. Mess with the S line if you must, but leave the note alone

The only thing you going to miss the size other than that it’s an excellent phone overall.

4000mAh battery is a given for a device of this size, smaller phones can manage it so its about time, I will probably skip the note 9 though unless it has some killer new stuff inside, its 2 similar to the galaxy S series now, the pen is the only real distinguishable standout feature, and that wasnt something i used enough to justify the upgrade, I cant imagine it being any less then £899 on release in the UK, so that will also put me off as well

Yup. I still rock the note 4. The note 4, 3 yrs old at least. The best note imo. Has it all. Now, notes are glorified galaxies like you said. R.I.P note

Might be Note 9 will come with 8 gig of ram due to the Spen, dual camera and armoji.

Can't wait for this beast!!!

What I think of a beast, I think of someone or something that people are impressed by because they do things nobody else can. The Note is going to function the same as ever other phone....

Looks like your phone didn't know that you meant EVERY other phone. LMAO! And if by function as every other phone you mean talk, text, surf & download apps then yes. But the Note has functions other Samsung phones can't do, let alone other manufacturers.

The Note has always done things other phones can't, and that will continue with the Note 9.

Single core going to be lower than S9 plus.

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.

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..

LMAO! Okay. If that were true, tell me why Sony is never in the mention for phone of the year?

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.

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

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.

Yep, the S9+ costs less too.

Only 64GB the 128GB and 256GB still expensive as iPhone X 64GB and 256GB.

'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.
