Sounding the bugle for its annual warfare with Apple right on its home turf, Samsung on Thursday launched its flagship Galaxy Note 9 - a device with a mammoth 1TB memory, bigger battery and a Bluetooth-equipped S Pen.
The New York launch comes just over a week after Samsung revealed that sales of its other high-end smartphone - the Galaxy S9 - had disappointed. The screen is a little larger this time around and the processor is faster, but the key detail for many will be the 4,000 mAh battery.

Samsung, that maintained a comfortable lead in the second quarter this year with 20.9 per cent global market share, has now created flutters in Apples camp with unveiling its flagship Galaxy Note 9.

Samsung is betting everything on the Galaxy Note 9 in a saturated market where all smartphones are more or less the same.
