Today in Samsung Leaks we present what may be the next S Pen, and it sure does have a colour.
Notable leaker Ice Universe are at it again with the first 'real' sighting of the next generation of S-Pens. While it doesn't provide any new info on the device, it shows what it may look like.

This close up shot of what appears to be promotional material or perhaps packaging shows a yellow S Pen that looks like a cross between a banana and a primary school pencil.
To be fair, it could just be the light or even the quality of the camera that is being used. Especially considering the teaser video for Unpacked, which shows a goldish S-Pen.
But it also looks kind of yellow now that I'm studying it obsessively. I don't know what to believe anymore.
Of course, it could also simply be a fake. But if this is real... it's quite an interesting choice and we hope it's more on the gold end of the yellow spectrum. And that there will be other options. Please.
The design itself is incredibly similar to the current generation of Note 8 S Pens, but without the obvious Samsung branding. Looking closely at the image, there could be some white writing there, but it's incredibly hard to tell. This makes me quite skeptical about this 'leak'. It could be a simple Photoshop job.
But while we're looking at the image, it also seems to reveal that the Note 9 will have a dual camera setup at the rear, as well as a fingerprint scanner, USB-C charging and a blessed headphone jack. Not particularly surprising revelations, but we'll take what we can get.
This latest 'leak' comes mere weeks after other S-Pen rumours — including bluetooth capabilities, a long-range self timer, music playback and other undisclosed upgrades.
There has also been talk that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will have a larger 4000mAh battery, but that it will have a maximum charging power of 10W.
As always, we likely won't know anything for sure until Samsung's Unpacked event on August 9 (most likely August 10 here in Australia). But we'll keep our eyes on the rumour mill until then.
Leaks and rumours surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 have been flying consistently for the past few weeks, and we have some more for you. This time around it's about some huge upgrades to the new S-Pen.
We're still over a month away from the official unveiling of the Galaxy Note 9 at Samsung's Unpacked event om August 10. In the meantime, plenty of rumours have been flying about online, and one of the most recent involves the battery.
