The South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics launched today its new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 phone in 56 countries, including the United States, China, and Europe, a figure that will expand to 130 in the coming months, the company said in a statement.
New Samsung flagship smartphone is expected to be better received than the Galaxy S9
The latest model in the Note family, featuring a digital pencil and large screen (this time a 6.4-inch), is now on the market with anticipated local sales 30 to 50 percent higher than the Galaxy S9, launched in March, according to The Korea Herald.
The Galaxy S9 has received a weaker response from the market due to the lack of innovative features compared to its predecessor, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 changes are considered more noticeable.
