Update, Aug. 9: The Galaxy Note 9 is now official, and we've gone hands-on. Original story follows.
Before Samsung announces the Galaxy Note 9, take a glimpse at all the rumored leaks and creative renders we found. This one is from Concept Creator, which imagines what devices might look like based on rumored specs.
... the blue comes with a shockingly yellow S Pen.
The Note 9 could have a screen of 6.38 or 6.4 inches, making it larger than last year's Galaxy Note 8...
...though the Note 9 might not differ much in design from the Note 8, as suggested by this render from Concept Creator.
A common rumor is that the Galaxy Note 9 will launch on Aug. 9 in New York, purposefully avoiding a September release that would clash with Apple.
Despite similarities, it's rumored that the Galaxy Note 9 will fix one major flaw of the Note 8...
Other renders, like this one from Concept Creator, also show a fingerprint sensor in the middle-back of the phone.
Olixar, a phone-accessory-making company, has already come out with cases for the Note 9. This render and case portrays the fingerprint sensor underneath side-by-side rear cameras.
This screen protector by Olixar leaves holes for dual front cameras.
Here's a closer view of the scanner.
Ice Universe tweeted that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will only get a small adjustment from last year's model.
This leak was also tweeted by Ice Universe, showing the possible screen panel for the Galaxy Note 9.
A render from Phone Arena illustrates the rumored measurements for the Note 9 in comparison with the Note 8.
We're almost certain that the dual-aperture lens from the Galaxy S9 will also come to the Note 9...
...but no rumors have claimed that the front-facing camera will have a dual-aperture lens as well.
We hope it will -- more aperture lets more light into your photos, making for brighter selfies.
If the Galaxy Note 9 can incorporate a 3D front-facing camera, it can add a secure full-face scanning feature like the iPhone X's Face ID as an option alongside Samsung's secure iris scanning.
This render by Concept Creator shows a more colorful set of Note 9 phones to choose from: blue and red in addition to black. This would be a brighter array from the subdued colors of the Note 8.
Other renders include an even larger variety of colors to choose from. This one from MadMix shows the Note 9 in blue, brown, gray, lilac and black.
Though Samsung's foldable phone is in the works, rumors suggest we won't see it until 2019.
It's most likely that Samsung's Bixby AI software will continue to live on in the Note 9. Bixby has been a staple feature of most high-end Galaxy phones we've seen.
Hopefully, Samsung will improve its Bixby digital assistant, specifically with better natural-language processing, improved noise cancelling and faster response times.
It's a common rumor that a new stereo speaker will be placed at the bottom of the phone, to the right of the Note 9's digital S Pen stylus.
Samsung's teaser ad hints at the possibility of an S Pen stylus that supports Bluetooth.
This update would shift a lot of Samsung's focus to the S Pen, and not as much to the phone itself.
With bluetooth, the S Pen would act like a remote for your phone, allowing you to control music or even take photos from a distance.
This design was rendered by 91mobiles. Note the speaker grill on the bottom left of the phone. The Galaxy Note 9 will probably also have a headphone jack, like the Galaxy S9.
Concept Creator came up with a similar render for the bottom of the phone.
We're still more than a month away from the rumored August date of Samsung's Unpacked event for the Note 9, but we'll keep a sharp eye out for alleged pictures. Meanwhile, here are the features we think the Galaxy Note 9 will have.
