Samsung Galaxy Note 9 event set for August 9 in New York City

Well, it's official: the Galaxy Note 9 is coming on August 9, 2018. At least that's what we're expecting given the history of Samsung's announcement schedule and the leaks we've seen. The company has just sent out invitations to a Galaxy Unpacked event, taking place on August 9 in New York City — which aligns closely with previous Note announcements. The timing is a little earlier than last year, but this August 9 date was also previously rumored. The Note 8 was announced on August 23, while the Note 7 actually announced earlier, on August 2.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 rumors: Release date, specs, price, and features!

In typical fashion the invitation has come long with a video to tease some parts of what the phone could be. This time, they're not highlighting the phone itself but instead the S Pen — it only takes a few times scrubbing through the short video to see multiple angles of it, including its button. But that bright gold color sure looks enticing ... and I'm sure some of you will find little details that we're missing.

Now that we have a date set, is the Note 9 hype in full effect? Do you have any better theories about what the image above is showing? Let's get this discussion going in the comments!
