“The Galaxy Note 9 extends Samsung’s most premium line of mobile devices and requires the most innovative technologies,” said TM Roh, executive vice president and the head of mobile R&D at Samsung. “Our ongoing collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies allows us to deliver a best-in-class experience.”

Qualcomm President Cristiano R. Amon joined Roh in New York for Samsung’s product launch at Barclays Center.

The phone uses the Snapdragon 845 mobile platform, which the San Diego company said is powerful enough to create immersive multimedia experiences and support artificial intelligence.

The new phone sells for around $1,000 and features a 6.4-inch screen, large battery, 128 to 512 gigabytes of memory and an innovative stylus for writing notes.
