Is this the official price for the Samsung Galaxy Note9 in Malaysia?

Samsung Galaxy Note9 Malaysia Price

UPDATE: Lazada Malaysia has reached out to us on the pricing details. According to them, the official retail price of the Galaxy Note9 has yet to be announced and it may be different from the one shown in this post.

The Samsung Galaxy Note9 will be launched on 9 August 2018. Since Malaysia is a key market for Samsung, we will be among the first wave countries to get it. Ahead of its Galaxy Unpacked announcement, online e-commerce platform, Lazada Malaysia has apparently revealed the models and pricing for this upcoming flagship smartphone.

A couple of Galaxy Note9 models were listed on the Samsung Malaysia store on Lazada. From the looks of it, we will be getting two models – 128GB and 512GB of storage.

The Galaxy Note9 with 128GB of storage is listed at RM4,299 and it’s available in Black, Blue and Brown.

For those who want the most storage, the 512GB storage variant is listed for RM5,099. While this will be the most expensive Samsung flagship smartphone yet, it’s still cheaper than the iPhone X 64GB (RRP: RM5,149 with 6% GST) when it was introduced in Malaysia.

As a comparison, the current Galaxy Note8 was launched at RM3,999 (with 6% GST) and it came with 64GB of storage. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S9+ with 128GB was announced at RM3,999 and the 256GB version was going for RM4,399.

Although the listing looks quite legit, there’s a chance that the pricing could be different when it launches in Malaysia. Lazada is notorious for leaking out prices ahead of its official availability and in most occasions, they are normally correct. Just recently, they have leaked the ASUS ZenFone 5z pricing and just a few days ago, they have also revealed the pricing of the new Xiaomi Mi A2 for Malaysia.
