Surfing across the web I came over the User Agent Database web site which basically lists many of the user agent strings from all over the internet.
As you might guess from the name of this article, there are Opera 9.7 and Presto 2.3 strings:
Some other details from the same page:
Opera/9.70 (X11; Linux x86_64; U; en) Presto/2.3.0

It looks like Opera Software was/is indeed developing Opera 9.7 which could’ve been released before Opera 10 Final. It also contains Opera 9.70 and Presto 2.2.0 strings as well.
Despite the fact that Opera 9.7 was last seen on April, 2009, could they still secretly develop a last branch of Opera 9 series? That remains a mystery.
