‘Crown’ may be codename for Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Samsung is well on its way to release of the Galaxy Note 9 in 2018 as the next generation of the Galaxy Note series. Sources are reporting that the codename for the device is “crown” and to the extent that codenames may have some meaning, it is believed this is a reference to Samsung’s intent to firm up and elevate their position in the large-screen, stylus equipped device market.

Along with the revelation regarding the potential codename for the Galaxy Note 9, an unidentified parts supplier in Korea was quoted by a local news source as saying, “we will start providing components for a pilot production (of the Galaxy Note 9) in the first quarter next year.” That timing suggests Samsung is once again targeting a release around the month of August.

According to sources, no major changes are expected for the next iteration the Galaxy Note smartphone. The device is expected to have the same 6.3-inch Infinity display as the current model, but will get an update to the Snapdragon 845 processor. One significant change that could be implemented would be with the camera hardware. Samsung is also expected to continue to enhance the functionality of the S Pen.
