UPDATE: Samsung is also throwing in a trade-up promotion that entitles current Note users, to receive from RM 200 – RM 1,150 off, depending which Note model they currently own.
Early adopters are gonna be in for a ball, as Samsung Malaysia will be giving out free accessories worth up to RM 538 with purchase of a Galaxy Note5 or Galaxy S6 edge+ during its roadshow events on the 4th of September; in these three locations – Sunway Pyramid (Kuala Lumpur/Selangor), Gurney Plaza (Penang) and Sutera Mall (Johor Bahru).
If you’re in to brave the potential crowds on said date, you’ll be getting a huge 11,300 mAh Samsung Battery Pack (RM 306 value) and the Wireless Charger (RM 232 value) absolutely free. The mobile device maker has also thrown in a special 50% off on any second purchase of a Galaxy Note5 but you’ve gotta be the first 100 in line for the Sunway Pyramid roadshow and the first 50 for both the Penang and Johor launch – making only 200 individuals lucky enough to snap up the Note5 at half its RRP of RM2,699.
Basically you will be paying half price for a device that packs a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display that’s powered by a 2.1GHz Exynos 7420, mated with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. Other than that, it’ll have 32GB of internal storage; unfortunately, there will be no MicroSD slot on the Note5 that weights in at a mere 171g.
Images are captured better thanks to a 16-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing snapper – both sensors have an f/1.9 aperture, making low light shots a better experience. Samsung also decided to omit the hot-swappable battery, which stands at 3,000 mAh. With omissions, there are definitely new inclusions, as the device now supports Dual-SIM LTE slots.
You’ll see the same specs on the Galaxy S6 edge+ too but it’ll differ in two aspects – the captivating dual edged display and no S Pen on board. Its definitely meant to be more of a screen upgrade from the original 5.1-inch Galaxy S6 edge and improve its rigidity by upping the aluminum to a 7000 series.
Existing Note users won’t be left out either, as Samsung has let them upgrade through their trade-up program. Below you’ll find the listing of value matched to the corresponding models.
Still feeling unsure of buying a phablet? You’re in luck, cause Samsung also dropped the prices for the smaller Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, for the duration of the roadshow. The new pricing is as reflected below:
Galaxy S6 RM2,199 (previously RM2,599)
Galaxy S6 edge RM2,599 (previously RM3,099)
