The latest leak confirms everything that was rumoured about the Galaxy Note 9 and gives us the clearest look at the design of upcoming Samsung flagship. The phone will be able to hold up to 1TB of storage, thanks to a microSD slot. In a new Galaxy Note 9 teaser video, Samsung shows the history of Note series and how it evolved.

Among other specifications, some of the early reports claimed that the Note 9 could come with a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The page, first spotted by Evan Blass, reads, "Say hello to superpower" and invites customers to preorder and be "one of the first to experience it".

The video, published yesterday on Samsung's New Zealand YouTube channel, shows off the device in the gold and navy color scheme we've seen previously and provides a handful of details about the handset.
