South Korean electronics giant Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy Note 9 smartphone Thursday, its latest effort to address flagging sales of the high-functioning gadgets. 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.
The 6.4-inch screen Note 9 will start at $999.99 and max out at $1,249.99 – becoming, at about $100 above the iPhone X's upper limit, one of the world's most expensive consumer phones. It looks similar to last year's 6.3-inch Note 8 but has a revamped Bluetooth stylus – a long-time selling point of the Note series – as well as an upgraded camera that takes sharper photos than the S9 released earlier this year.
The Note 9 will support up to 1 terabyte of memory - a 512GB version that can take another 512GB through a memory card - making Samsung the first major smartphone maker to sell a 1TB phone. Samsung also enhanced the gadget's batteries so it can now be used for an entire day without needing to be recharged - a common headache for cell phone users.
The Galaxy Note 9 will hit stores on Aug. 24, Samsung said.
