Samsung Galaxy Note 9 gets a codename

For those who would rather not use an iPhone the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be the flagship handset to watch out for in the second half of 2018.

The handset has been the subject of a number of rumours already, and despite still being in development phase some preliminary details have already leaked, such as that it will have an in-display fingerprint reader, 6.4-inch screen and 4000 mAh battery. According to leaked benchmarks, it may also be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and have 6GB of RAM.

Now the ever-reliable Evan Blass has added another detail to the picture, adding a code-name for the handset.

According to evLeaks the handset will be code-named Crown, which we assume references Samsung’s ever-present ambition to top the iPhone, in this case, the iPhone X’s successor.

The handset is expected to hit stores in August, just like the Note 8, although there are rumours it may arrive a bit earlier, to build up more of a lead against the iPhone X2.

Like other Samsung flagship smartphones, the handset will likely also be sold via the Microsoft Store.
