We already know the local pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, but the Korean company is officially launching its latest flagship smartphone in Malaysia today. Unveiled globally just last week, this is without a doubt a very timely launch.
More of an incremental upgrade than anything else, the Galaxy Note 9 bears a striking resemblance to its predecessor. It does, of course, come with a few notable upgrades. One of which is a new S Pen, which is now Bluetooth-enabled. This basically lets you use the S Pen as a remote control now.
Aside from that, the Galaxy Note 9 also comes with two sizeable storage options. There’s the 128GB model with 6GB of RAM, and a whopping 512GB variant with 8GB of RAM. The flagship’s battery capacity got a bump too: it now sports a very practical 4,000mAh battery.
Other specifications of the Galaxy Note 9 include a 6.4-inch 1440p Super AMOLED Infinity Display, an Exynos 9810 chipset, a capable 12MP + 12MP dual-camera system with variable aperture and dual OIS, as well as an 8MP front-facing shooter with autofocus.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be available on store shelves in Malaysia from 24 August onwards, and it retails at RM3,699 and RM4,599 for the 128GB and 512GB models respectively. The Malaysian market is getting three distinct colour options: Ocean Blue (with a bright yellow S Pen), Metallic Copper, and of course, Midnight Black.
