Samsung has officially announced the arrival of its two flagship phablets, the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, in Malaysia. This comes less than one month after its global unveiling on 13 August – an impressive feat for the South Korean giants.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note5 is the company’s greatest Note smartphone yet, adopting the company’s attractive new design language. With a body made from metal and glass, the Note5 is sleek and isn’t too heavy despite its size. Inside, there’s the same Exynos 7420 octa-core chipset in the Galaxy S6, but with 4GB of RAM – the highest in smartphones to date. The display is a 5.7-inch 2K (2,560 x 1,440) Super AMOLED screen, while Samsung also retains the fantastic 16MP rear and 5MP front cameras from the S6. There’s a better S Pen as well, including a new spring-release mechanism.
The Galaxy S6 edge+ is designed for those who loved the dual-edge curved screen from the S6 edge, but prefer a larger display. On the other hand, the S6 edge+ does not have the S Pen, which means for the first time ever, Samsung has two flagship phablets for consumers to choose from.
Beginning tomorrow (4 September), Malaysians can purchase the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ at all official Samsung retailers nationwide for RM2,699 and RM3,099 respectively. The Note5 will be available in White Pearl and Gold Platinum, while the S6 edge+ will be offered in Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum.
Also, customers who buy the Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ are also eligible for Samsung’s premium personalised pick up service, including a 24-hour hotline service for remote diagnosis, and free 7-point “health check” for the two devices when you drop any of them off at a Samsung service centre.
