UPDATE: the Note5 will be available for sales on the 4th of September
If you’ve been waiting for the latest productivity phablet, take note this coming 3rd September. The Galaxy Note5 will be launched officially in Malaysia next Thursday.
The Galaxy Note 5 retains a similar 5.7″ Quad HD display but it now comes in a premium all glass and metal design similar to its S6/S6 edge series. Under the hood, it gets a top of the line Exynos Octa-Core processor with a massive 4GB of RAM for all your multi-tasking needs. For the busy man on the go, the new Note5 will come with dual-SIMs allowing you to stay connected on 2 different telcos.
With the launch happening on a Thursday, we expect Samsung Malaysia to make the devices available almost immediately across all retail channels including its big 3 telcos. Also to make its official debut in Malaysia, is the S6 edge+, its phablet version of its double curve display smart phone. So far Celcom has started teasing that the Note5 and S6 edge+ will be coming on their network.
In terms of price, do expect to pay a lot more. Not only it is priced higher than the Note 4 due to GST, but we would probably need to factor our current exchange rate of RM4.24 to 1 USD. Any guesses for the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ price tag?
