Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy Note 9 next month, but that isn't stopping the leaks from popping up online.

As we get closer to the official Galaxy Note 9 launch on 9 August, we've been treated to what looks like a real marketing photo or a render of the device. It comes from a reliable leaker, Evan Blass. He shared the photo, which shows the phone alongside the same yellow S-Pen we think was depicted in the launch event's invitation. It confirms there is a button on the stylus, likely for Bluetooth connection.

We can also see a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, no notch, and dual cameras. Of course, the photo could be a fake, but we highly doubt it. At this point, before a typical launch event for a phone, real photos and info tends to emerge and replace old rumours and concepts.

At least we'll find out for sure soon, as the Note 9 will be announced at Samsung Unpacked shortly. You can watch the event live online here. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
