It began with an overview of Samsung's vision of modern mobile technology which focuses on "meaningful innovations" to expand human possibilities. The Galaxy Note 9 raises the bar for "speed, power and performance once again" to offer users opportunities to live a life without interruption at a pace they demand. It implements solutions that offer tech "intelligence that goes beyond platforms".
