Seeing how the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 met an unfortunate end, the Galaxy Note 5 is now the latest device in the Note family. That being said, it’s still technically last year’s flagship, which is probably why Samsung Malaysia has just reduced the retail price of the Note 5.
Initially going for RM2,699 when the Galaxy Note 5 was launched on our shores, the device is now going for only RM2,199; that’s a RM500 price cut. However, it’s worth noting that the Note 5 can already be bought at that price – or even lower – from various online retailers, although an official price drop is definitely welcomed.
As the Galaxy Note 5 is last year’s flagship smartphone, its hardware are not quite as powerful, but it’s still a very capable device. The Note 5 features a 5.7-inch 1440p Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 7420 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of non-expandable storage, a 3,000mAh battery, as well as a fingerprint sensor. In the camera department, the Note 5 has a 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation and a 5MP front-facing shooter.
Seeing how Samsung Malaysia has officially reduced the retail price of the Galaxy Note 5 in Malaysia, it might serve as an even more compelling alternative to the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7. It may be a 2015 smartphone, but it’s a flagship device nonetheless.
