What Is Wrong With The Number 9? No Iphone 9, Will There Be Samsung Galaxy S9?

If you were to be the number 9, you wouldn’t be happy with Microsoft and Apple for jumping you to the number 10. Today, we have Windows 10 and iPhone X (The X is a Roman numeral for 10). Aren’t you eager to know why this two big technology companies choose to neglect 9 in their product launch, after all, their previous line of products (Windows OS and iPhone) were launched having numbers that occurred in series to note the succession.

Microsoft have Windows 7, 8, Jumped 9, and landed in 10. Apple have iPhone 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, Jumped 9, and also landed in X (which means 10). The question now becomes: What is wrong with the number 9?

We know that most of this brands ship their products to different parts of the world, this places have their beliefs which can affect how they see or welcome a particular thing. For example, it is believed that the number 9 means completeness and eternity in Chinese numerology but that wouldn’t be same for other nations and languages. Why is the tech industry afraid of 9 or are they considering acceptance and sales of their products in other regions? They are in a more better position to tell us.

Moving to Samsung Galaxy S9, there have been a lot of rumors about this flagship device which is expected to launch earlier in 2018. A lot of concepts and ideas of how Galaxy S9 will look like are being brought up daily by users who can’t wait to see this high end device released into the smartphone market. Although, the issue of whether Samsung will jump the number 9 hasn't been considered, only time will tell if they follow Microsoft and Apple in their miscounting act.

I also had my own expectations of Samsung Galaxy S9 which wasn’t bad to start with, but the final design is in the hands of Samsung. It is expected that it will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset, and may stick to 4GB RAM rather than switching to 6GB RAM which other phones nowadays are doing.

Having said the few things I have in my mind, remember, 9Mobile is the mobile network provider that took over from Etisalat in Nigeria. Hope the number 9 in their name won’t affect their business.

For some of us, the number 9 is just 9 and nothing more. Life would be easier if we keep things simple and interpret them the way they are.
