Samsung Malaysia has finally introduced a new Galaxy Note5 option that comes with 64GB of storage. This is the currently the newest Samsung flagship you can buy that has an S Pen stylus.
If you think about all the new devices that are coming out these days, most of them are upwards of five inches, with many hovering around the 5.5-inch mark. While that’s a norm today, it wasn’t so a couple of years ago.
Back then, to have a smartphone that had a screen size of more than five inches was bordering on the absurd. But, one smartphone changed that. One smartphone kickstarted a revolution in smartphones, their screen sizes, and what we could do with them.
Here’s a brief look at that smartphone and the handset lineup it spawned. The pioneer that led to an entire generation of large form-factor handsets — the Samsung Galaxy Note.

Buying a phone outright is expensive and getting one through a contract could be troublesome with its lock-in periods. To make phone ownership easier, Celcom has introduced its NewPhone program. On the surface, this is similar to the Maxis Zerolution program as it lets you change phones every year for free.

With the approaching Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day festivities, Samsung has finally decided to bring the Pink Gold variant of the Galaxy Note5 to Malaysia. With the apparent demand for smartphones in a pink hue, now consumers have an extra device to choose from!
Most of us have heard the stories about the Samsung Galaxy Note5‘s S Pen getting stuck and breaking if you stick it into the slot backwards. Some of us have tried it out for ourselves first hand. It seemed like a gigantic design oversight by the South Korean electronics giant, but the solution was a simple one — don’t put the pen in backwards.
Sometimes, accidents happen and it seems that Samsung has picked up on that as they’ve quietly fixed this gigantic flaw with the S Pen via a hardware modification to their newer Galaxy Note5 models. But, as there is no way of telling if your device has the fix, please don’t try this with your own device.
If you’re looking for a new phone in time for Chinese New Year, you can soon own the Samsung Galaxy Note5 in Pink Gold in Malaysia. The pink flagship smartphone is offered by Maxis from as low as RM93/month on its Zerolution program.
