Samsung will be holding a roadshow for its upcoming Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ next week, but today the company has unveiled the retail prices of both its latest flagship phablets.
The Galaxy Note5 will retail for Rm2,699, inclusive of 6% GST. There were murmurs that the new phablet will cost as high as RM3,199 due to the recent jump in foreign exchange rates, but that rumour has been put to rest. The Note 5 is Samsung’s most advanced Note smartphone to date, featuring an Exynos 7420 octa-core chipset with 4GB of RAM, a 5.7-inch 2,560 x 1,440 Super AMOLED display, an excellent 16MP rear camera and of course, the most sophisticated S Pen Samsung’s ever made.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S6 edge+ will retail for RM3,099, inclusive of 6% GST. Featuring the same hardware as the Note 5 with the exception of the S Pen, the larger variant of the S6 edge is actually RM100 cheaper than the 5.1-inch S6 edge.
Samsung Malaysia is only offering 32GB variant at the moment, which will be available starting from 4 September. One key feature both will also have is dual SIM support, where both SIM card slots support 4G connections; this is a standard dual SIM slot though, so there’s still no microSD card slot. The Galaxy Note5 will be offered in two colours: Gold Platinum and White Pearl, while the S6 edge+ will be available in Gold Platinum and Black Sapphire.
