Evan Blass says this is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 - in white.

Design and new S Pen aside, the Note 9's insides should be on-par with what we've seen from the Galaxy S9 and other 2018 flagship Android phones.

South Korean tech giant Samsung is now working on its 10th generation Galaxy S smartphones - S10 and S10 Plus. Note 9 is expected to be powered by 1.8 GHz octa-core processor and on board storage of 64 GB with the option of expandable memory by up to 2 TB.

The Note 9 is said to have the same design as the Note 8.

Overall though, the Note 9 is expected to be similar to the Note 8. Ice Universe also leaked the upgraded S Pen coming to the Samsung Note 9 later this year.

Details include a large screen with slim bezels at the top and bottom, a single key (likely the power button) on the right edge and two buttons (probably the volume rocker and Bixby button) on the left, just like on the Note 8. So if both sets of specs are correct, the Honor Note 10 could be a serious competitor to Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 - especially so the price is firmly lodged in the mid-range bracket.

A fingerprint reader on the back seems the most logical, but there's also rumors Samsung might embed the fingerprint reader underneath the screen. We get to see the new S Pen once again and it indeed appears to have a glossy finish. This lead to Samsung reporting a 4% decrease in revenue quarter by quarter. That means dual 12-megapixel shooters, with the main camera sporting a "variable aperture" that can switch between f/1.5 and f/2.4, and the secondary camera offering 2x optical zoom. Time will tell if my hunch is correct, in the meantime, I'm sure we'll be seeing a whole lot more leaks before anything is made official.
