2018 has a long list of amazing smartphones to enter the market. The South Korean company Samsung had started working on Galaxy Note 9 and is confirmed by senior executives at Samsung’s Global Product Planning Group. By tradition, the Galaxy Note series launch in the latter half of the year and the Galaxy Note 9 is also expected to follow suit. Thus 2018 Note phablet, Galaxy Note 9 is not expected to arrive until late summer 2018. Like all Android devices, most Samsung devices also have a codename attached to them. Galaxy Note 9 is reportedly codenamed as ‘crown’ obviously with the ambition of reclaiming the throne of the smartphone. The phone is expected to have very slim bezels along with the premium build. Galaxy Note 8 features a metal and glass built with a dual-edge design, a dual-rear camera, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. There is a chance that Samsung will continue with the combination of glass and metal. Some reports have inferred the Note 9 will feature an under-display fingerprint sensor embedded within the display rather than continue with the slightly awkward rear-mounted positioning found on the S8, S8+ and Note 8. The Galaxy Note series is Samsung’s big-screened device and its latest launched Note 8, pushed a new size of 6.3-inches with 18.5:9 aspect ratio. We can expect Note 9 to have a similar size and aspect ratio with Super AMOLED panel for rich and vibrant colors. There is a possibility of an increase in terms of resolution, some rumors are also there about the wonderful; 4K resolution. All Galaxy Note models ship with a stylus pen and incorporate a pressure-sensitive Wacom digitizer, so it is certain that the Galaxy Note 9 will also come with an improved version of built-in S Pen. It is also likely the Note 9 will be IP68 water and dust resistant as its predecessor. The Galaxy Note 8 was the first Samsung device to sport a dual-rear camera setup. It is therefore anticipated that the Galaxy Note 9 will offer this feature, especially as other flagships are only adopting the trend. There is a chance that Samsung may increase the resolution of cameras or at least some processing enhancements. Samsung Newsroom published an interview saying the camera was one main feature people buy a Note, so most likely the company will make improvements in camera. There has been a rumor that Note 9 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Note 8 had 6GB of RAM under its hood so we can expect the Note 9 to have this, along with at least 64GB of storage and microSD support for storage expansion. The Galaxy Note 9 seems to arrive on Android Oreo with Samsung’s TouchWiz software over the top. No doubt, there will be some extra features added to get a revived look compared to Galaxy Note 8. Samsung is also expected to include a better speaker as Galaxy Note 8 had a mediocre speaker. The final verdict is we can assume Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be reclaiming its “crown” and become a phone of our dreams.
