Could this be the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 pricing in Malaysia?

UPDATE: Samsung Galaxy Note 10 pricing has been revealed by Celcom.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 launch is happening tomorrow morning at 4AM Malaysian time and we expect pre-orders to be available on our shores very soon. This year, Samsung will unveil not one but two Galaxy Note 10 devices that come in different sizes. Ahead of the launch event, we just received a tip about its pricing for the Malaysian market.

According to a tipster that works at a retailer, Samsung Malaysia will offer both the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ with a single 256GB storage variant and below is the alleged official pricing:

Galaxy Note 10 256GB – RM3,699
Galaxy Note 10+ 256GB – RM4,199

UPDATE: There’s also a Galaxy Note 10+ 512GB variant priced at RM4,799

It is also mentioned that Samsung will be bundling the Galaxy Buds wireless earphones for free for one of the variants. Similar to the previous Galaxy flagships, it is likely that Samsung will introduce a higher storage variant at a later date. We can’t verify if the pricing is accurate but it does look pretty legit when compared with previous Samsung flagship models.

Looking at the price, the Galaxy Note 10 is more affordable than expected considering it comes with a larger 256GB base storage. At RM3,699, it is the same price as the Galaxy S10+ (128GB) and the Galaxy Note9 (128GB) at the time of launch. The Galaxy Note 10+ is the biggest Note smartphone yet and for the extra RM500, you’re getting a larger screen and a bigger battery.

From what we’ve seen so far, the Galaxy Note 10 (non-Plus) will come with a smaller and lower-resolution 6.3″ Full HD+ display and it will be powered by a 3,500mAh battery. The larger Note 10+ variant will get a larger 6.8″ Quad HD+ display and it is expected to be powered by a large 4,300mAh battery. The standard Note 10 will come with a similar triple-camera setup as the Galaxy S10 while the “plus” model will get an additional 3D ToF camera for better bokeh effects.
