The Samsung Galaxy S20 series has been launched, with three new devices being announced during the Samsung Unpacked event held in San Francisco on the 12th of February 2020. We’ve got the Samsung Galaxy S20, the S20+, and a new range-topping Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, with official Malaysian pricing as follows:
Samsung Galaxy S20 – RM3,599
Samsung Galaxy S20+ – RM3,999

While official availability begins on the 6th of March, pre-orders are already available from multiple telcos, with customers that purchase the middle variant Galaxy S20+ and the range-topping S20 Ultra 5G will receive the new Samsung Galaxy Buds+ for free while stocks last.
Maxis has all three models available for pre-order, with options available under the Zerolution and Normal Contract plans.
