Samsung Galaxy Note II official full specification update 26-09-2012

27 Sep


After the unveiling of the Galaxy Note II, you must be wondering when the device will be available in Malaysia, how much is it going to cost and which local operators will be offering the device. While we don’t have definitive answers for these questions, we know enough to be able to give you a rough estimation.

First up is availability. Samsung has indicated that the Galaxy Note II will be released in major European, Asian and Middle East markets in October. And the last time we checked, Malaysia is still a major market for Samsung so it is reasonable to expect the Note II to be available in October at the very least.

In terms of pricing, we’re expecting the Galaxy Note II to cost as much as the original did when it was first launched last year, so expect to pay around RM2,200 for the Note II. At the same time, expect Samsung Malaysia to revise the pricing of the Galaxy S III to make room for the Note II as the new flagship in the market.

As for local operators, it’s a safe bet that Celcom, DiGi, Maxis and maybe even U Mobile will be organizing simultaneous launches for the Note II. Contract pricing for the phone should be around RM1,600 on a 24-months plan.


These are all of course predictions and things could change from now till October but we’ll keep looking out for the latest info and provide updates as soon as they become available. In the meantime, let us know your thoughts on the Note II. Are you planning to get one?

To recap on the official specs, the Galaxy Note II runs on a faster 1.6GHz Quad-Core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM with a 5.5″ 1280×720 HD Super AMOLED display. As expected, it runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. With a bigger screen than the older Galaxy Note, it is taller at 151.1mm however it has a shorter width of 80.5mm (Galaxy Note: 82.95mm) thanks to a thinner bezel design. Despite having a larger 3,100mAh battery, the Note II is thinner at 9.4mm (Galaxy Note: 9.65mm) and slightly heavier at 180g (Galaxy Note: 178g). by soyacincau
