Turns out we probably already know what Samsung’s pipeline looks like from within the company. Codenames for a bunch of devices including the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 Active have surfaced in leaked build of Android 8.0 Oreo for last year’s Galaxy Note 8, according to XDA-Developers.
The list of codenames reveal unannounced devices that are all likely to ship with or receive the same software update throughout 2018. While there are dozens of devices mentioned, only those believed to be part of Samsung’s high-end lineup are of interest to most.
Specifications are still up in the air since the company’s second 2018 flagship is six months away from being introduced, but the Galaxy Note 9 is believed to be known as “crown” internally. Meanwhile the Galaxy S9 Active, which should ship only a few months after the Galaxy S9 in March, is referred to as “astarqlte.”
There’s also mention of a Galaxy Tab 4 going by the name “gts4llte.” It’s unclear if this would be a new entrant in the budget-friendly Tab series or Samsung’s more expensive Tab S series.
Here’s the full list of codenames along with the devices they either officially or are suspected to belong to:
