Samsung unveils Galaxy Note 9

MNA Tech Desk: Samsung Electronics Co Ltd unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 “phablet” in New York in a key product launch that it hopes will attract younger customers with stepped-up features and services for gamers and music-lovers, reported news agency.

Launching the Note 9 at 11:00am in New York, or Friday midnight in Seoul, Samsung also announced partnerships with global hit game Fortnite and music-streaming service Spotify Technology SA in a stepped-up challenge to Apple Inc in the premium-phone race.

Samsung’s new focus marks a shift away from its previous positioning of the Note as a multi-tasking device popular with graphic designers and artists.

But the hefty price tag – at $999.99 for the base 128 gigabyte model, according to US carrier Verizon Communications Inc – has raised questions as to whether features such as a longer battery life and quick cooling would be enough to attract customers.
