This morning Samsung sent invites to the Galaxy Note 9 event set to take place on the 9th of August, 2018. In that invite, they included a part of the Galaxy Note 9’s latest S Pen. That S Pen was also shown in a video released by Samsung in South Korea, where it was put in motion. In that video, we’re able to see two key elements that make us confident the Galaxy Note 9 will be a significant upgrade this year – if only because of this singular built-in accessory.
The Galaxy Note series always benefitted from the inclusion of the S Pen. Without said stylus, the Galaxy Note series was just a collection of very large phones. With said S Pen, the Galaxy Note series is one of the most elite sets of phones in the history of mobile handsets.
The S Pen in the Galaxy Note 9 was tipped to get a big upgrade this year. How would that happen, you might ask, without changing the size and/or shape of the S Pen? We had a peek at how it might work just this week. Have a peek at the post Galaxy Note 9 S Pen: Fans obsess over new details to see what’s up.
Now we’ve got ourselves a new look at the S Pen – specifically the Note 9 S Pen, a device that’ll almost certainly be bringing the biggest change to the Note in this year’s presentation. The little we see of the S Pen here tells us two things.
1. The eraser-side clicker is adjusted slightly – it’s shorter now. That means we do indeed have a new S Pen, even IF it’s not significantly upgraded.
2. There’s a GOLD color for this monster smartphone.
The Gold doesn’t seem to follow all the way down to the clicker, which makes me think there’ll be a color combo that includes gold and either chrome or some sort of metal gray. There’s also a potential Blue/Gold version of the device out there – but I don’t think this S Pen confirms that, unless it’s being very blatant about it.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be revealed at Samsung Unpacked in New York City on August 9th, 2018. We’ll be bringing you the up-close and personal action – hands on, too – when the device is revealed fully. Stick around and behold!
