Though Samsung hasn't specified the device name, the teaser showed a yellow coloured stylus which all but confirms that it is the Galaxy Note 9.
As it so happens, the Galaxy Note 9 has been part of the rumour mill for quite some time now. Quite recently, the smartphone received certification from the US FCC. The model that was certified by the FCC is the international version of the Note 9 is the SM-N960F, though the version specific to the US will likely be named SM-N960U.
The smartphone is expected to come with a 6.3-inches QHD+ resolution display, Samsung Exynos 9810 or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6 GB/8 GB RAM and up to 256/512 GB of storage. There are also rumours of a triple-camera setup on the Note 9, but it would seem that they are false.
