We still don’t know these details but Nokia Malaysia have started displaying the device in its stores. This is an indication that the device is expected to be in the market really, really soon. How soon? We’re guessing somewhere in the middle of this month earliest and perhaps no later than the end of June. Any way you look at it, the device will be in stores soon.
What about the price? We estimate the device to be priced around RM1,600 maybe less. This is of course just our guess and we can be completely wrong.
How much would you pay for a phone the probably has the best camera ever in a mobile device but is running an operating system that’s not perceived as current by many? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
Thanks @Steady2Twit for the tip!
If you’re not into the latest models, we’re seeing another RM200 price slash for its Galaxy S II and Galaxy S Advance. Now the Samsung Galaxy S II can be yours at RM1,499 while the S Advanced at only RM1,099.
The Galaxy S II is still a pretty good buy with its 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus display and 1.2GHz dual-core processor (albeit running on TI OMAP4430 variety). The Galaxy S Advance runs on a lower dual-core 1.0GHz processor, 4.0″ Super AMOLED display with generous serving of 768MB RAM.
At the moment, we’re getting heaps of confirmation that both Galaxy S II (9100 & 9100G) are being upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. So far no news on ICS available for the Galaxy S Advance.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is expected to be introduced in the next month or so which is now beefed up with improved quad-core processor & a new S-Pen which can be stored within the tablet. While there’s no visibility on the launch and availability, there’s already a hands-on video which gives a pretty good detail of what the Note 10.1 has to offer. Surprisingly the Note 10.1 seems to follow the Galaxy S III in terms of colours with White & Blue colour options.
On board, the Note 10.1 runs on the latest Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWiz. The S-pen is similar as the one on the Galaxy Note but it is slightly bigger, which is better to grip. To expand your drawing potential, Adobe Photoshop Touch is said to be included as well. In terms of storage, the Galaxy Note like its Galaxy S III counterpart will have 16GB, 32GB and 64GB options. If you need more, storage is expandable via microSD up to 64GB. Over at the back, it has a 5MP camera while the front has a 2MP shooter.
Head after the break for the hands-on including a demo of Photoshop Touch.
After the Galaxy S III, the next anticipated device would be the Samsung Galaxy Note replacement. Now word has it that Samsung is expected to introduce the Galaxy Note II which comes with a much bigger screen at 5.5″ which is also Super AMOLED at a massive resolution of 1680×1050. If the numbers are real, it will be the highest pixel density smart phone at 360ppi.
In terms of hardware, it is said to feature a dual-core Exynos 5250 processor with 1.5GB of RAM. Over at the back, it still has a 8MP camera but with improved lens and sensor.
Despite the current Galaxy Note’s massive 5.3″ size, that didn’t deter people from snapping up the Note off the shelves. To date, the Galaxy Note has sold over 7 million units worldwide, which is a testament that there is a market for Phone-tablet hybrid form factor. In our hands-on, the 5.3″ is rather huge which is a challenge to use single handedly. After all, all these details are still yet to be confirmed and we can’t wait to see more details before its expected launch in October.
