The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a powerful quad core phablet with 2GB of RAM on board. All that hardware runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 and it also sports an S-Pen. This 5.5″ Super AMOLED HD device can now be found in Malaysia (unofficially) for a hefty price tag of RM2499 (AP). It is a tempting and powerful device but the price tag does make most people pause and take a step back.
However, as this is currently an exclusive, not-yet-launched device, the official pricing may end up being slightly cheaper and based on Galaxy S3’s price drop, I estimate around RM2299 for the original RRP when launched by Samsung Malaysia. However, for those who cannot wait to get their hands on this device or those who must be the first to get it, RM2499 may be a reasonable price that they are willing to pay. The AP set does come with 2 years warranty but that’s only from the shop and may put off some people who do not live close by.

Update (081012): In just a span of a few short days, the price for an AP Galaxy Note 2 has dropped dramatically from RM2499 to RM2048! Perhaps this is due to the Samsung Malaysia’s expected official launch of the Galaxy Note 2 this week at a lower than expected price. All in all, this is a good piece of news for those who were thinking about getting it but was held back due to the price (me being one of them, potentially).
