The design of the phone is also in keeping with previous Galaxy Note 9 leaks. If what we're seeing in the picture is accurate, then Samsung will be packing yellow S Pen with the Galaxy Note 9, a bit of an unusual color-wise. The poster here shows only the rear panel and bottom, along with the S Pen.

If you're in search of a brand new Android flagship this fall, the Note 9 should make your shortlist. The poster claims it as the "new super powerful Note", indicating that Samsung has some exciting surprise up its sleeves for the August 9 unveiling event. This will enable the stylus to perform a variety of functions including but not limited to controlling music playback. The S Pen is expected to feature Bluetooth, letting it act as a wireless remote controller for the camera shutter and other functions. The side edges still retain Samsung's characteristic curves. Granted, that's for one with 128 GB of storage, but considering the Galaxy Note 8 with the same configuration was just around $900, that's still a pretty big price hike. This is reportedly due to battery considerations.

Serial leaker Ice Universe, who has been one of the more reliable sources for Samsung rumors, posted to Twitter on Thursday (July 12) a flyer promoting the upcoming Galaxy Note 9.

Update: Here's how the Galaxy Note 8's S Pen looks when shot from a similar angle.
