With the Samsung Galaxy Note8 now officially out in the open, Malaysians looking forward to owning the new flagship phablet will be glad to know that Samsung Malaysia will be opening and structuring a special pre-order package for the Malaysian consumers.


The pre-order period will begin on September 5 and end on September 10, just several days before the launch of the phone in the country. The local pricing has yet to be announced, but given the dates, it is possible that Samsung will only announce it at the start of the pre-order period.


That being said, what we do know is that consumers will have four color variations to choose from: Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Maple Gold, and Deepsea Blue.


Samsung has announced a partnership with PayPal to allow Samsung Pay users to make in-app, online and in-store payments with the US payment platform.


The service will be available in the US first and will be expanded to other countries in the near future. 


Moreover, Samsung Pay will be accepted as a payment method in apps and online through Braintree, a US-based online payment provider, acquired by PayPal in 2013.


After its launch in August 2015, the payments platform is now available in 18 markets: the US, China, Spain, Singapore, Australia, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Russia, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Sweden, the UAE, Switzerland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the UK and Korea.


Have you ever woken up one morning, looked out the window, and said “I’m going to go out and buy myself a Samsung Galaxy S8, and I want it in that gorgeous Coral Blue color.”?


If the answer to that question is yes, then you’ll be happy to know that Samsung Malaysia has officially launched the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in the Coral Blue variant in Malaysia.


Samsung says that they specifically chose blue due to its popularity as a color in no less than 10 countries across four continents. That, and the fact that the color is widely believed to be associated with intelligence and high perception.


The Coral Blue Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be available at all Samsung stores and authorized resellers starting today, and they will retail for RM3,299 and RM3,699, respectively.


11street and Samsung sign MoU

By on March 6, 2017


SK Planet, which owns and operates 11street, and Samsung Southeast Asia have agreed to a partnership that will provide Samsung with better brand presence in the region.

“Through this collaboration, we are forging a stronger alliance with Samsung to increase our offering of handheld devices and consumer electronics products to our consumers. We look forward to supporting Samsung in strengthening their product stronghold in Southeast Asia, and will leverage our platform to offer their range of quality products to our consumers,” said Hoseok Kim, CEO, 11street Malaysia.

Looking to lead the e-commerce market in the region and provide customers a more convenient way to buy their favorite Samsung gadgets, SK Planet and Samsung signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). Previously, both companies had worked together and maintained a significant online presence in South Korea.

“We see an increase of online purchases made via mobile from the outlying cities, we are glad to collaborate with 11street as one of our online partners to enhance our loyal and potential consumer’s online shopping experience. With only just a click away, we want Malaysians to experience the whole Samsung ecosystem!” said Lee Sang Hoon, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

Samsung plans to enhance customer shopping experience on 11street by introducing their Samsung official Shop-in-Shop page. This allows customers to not only access exclusive online-only pre-sale offers but also 11street’s promotional discounts. In addition, the service ensures customers will get their products quickly and a hassle-free product installation service by authorized Samsung distributors.

To celebrate the partnership between the two companies, 11street will be having a series of promotions beginning this March. This will include, free installation, delivery and extended warranty for selected Samsung electronics and home appliances. In addition, 11street will have a monthly ‘Samsung Day’ that will package bundles, discounts and credit rebates particular products.

It’s not often that you see a ready-made desktop system come with speakers built into the design, let alone one with 360-degree sound. Samsung has one such thing, and it’s called the ArtPC Pulse.


Very aptly named too, in our opinion. It’s a cylindrical desktop system with a 10.7 inches (approx. 272mm) tall full metal body with circular lighting. Sitting near the top of it all is the 360-degree omni-directional Harman Kardon speakers. It would fit nicely alongside any of your other modern art-inspired décor, especially if you have a matching monitor or TV.

But what about innards? There are two versions, an Intel Core i5 one and the other with an Intel Core i7. The former comes with an AMD Radeon RX460 2GB (which puts it just below the minimum VR requirements), a 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, a single USB Type-C, and a HDMI port each. The i7 version keeps most of the specs, but comes with 16GB of RAM instead and an additional 1TB HDD.

Both models are now available for pre-order on Amazon, for US$1,200 (approx. RM4,981)and US$1,600 (approx. RM6,642) for the i5 and i7 versions, respectively. If you’re looking to get one, this is your only way for now as there’s no word on if Samsung will be bringing this into Malaysia officially.



Google is said to be preparing to unveil several new devices and an upgraded Android version during its launch event on 29th October.


According to The Next Web, a source with knowledge of Google’s plans claims that the company is releasing a 32GB Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi only, and 3G-enabled), a 10-inch tablet, LG Nexus 4 and Android 4.2.


The existence of a 32GB variant of the Nexus 7 has more or less been confirmed by numerous leaks over the past few weeks, with an actual unit landing in the hands of a Japanese customer and entries in numerous inventory systems (1) (2) (3). In addition, the source also said that a 3G version of the 32GB Nexus 7 will be announced.


It is also revealed that Google is indeed working with Samsung on a 10-inch tablet. Known internally as the “Codename Manta”, the alleged device is powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The 10-inch tablet is said to be have a display resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels (about 300ppi).


This isn’t the first time we have heard of such a tablet as reports first surfaced in February, when a trusted source of BGR claimed that Samsung might be launching a tablet with a high resolution display at Mobile World Congress 2012. Three months later, a German coder was exploring Google’s source codes when he stumbled upon signs that indicated a collaboration with Samsung on a tablet.


A month after Google unveiled the Nexus 7, DigiTimes alleged that a 10-inch version is in the works and is slated for a launch by the end of the year. The information apparently came from touch panel manufacturers who mentioned that the 10-inch Nexus tablet will use 10-inch display panels from AU Optronics and Wintek.


Perhaps the worst kept secret of Google is the LG Nexus 4, which is also been confirmed by the source of The Next Web. The LG Nexus 4 will be equipped with a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 8 or 16GB internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2,100mAh battery.


Last but not least, Google will release Android 4.2 Jelly Bean which will bring a number of new features such as “Content in the center”, “Tablet Sharing” and enhanced panoramic camera settings.


“Content in the centre” will allow users to access Google Play Store content from a widget while “Tablet Sharing” enables multiple users on a single tablet device. The panoramic camera mode is said to be updated to support both horizontal and vertical movements by default.


Apple, Google and Microsoft are vying for their share of media attention in the last week of October as each company is holding its respective launch events one after the other.

If you complaining on your new iPhone4 via Twitter, you can get free a Samsung Galaxy S smartphones. However, there is this “special offer” only valid the United Kingdom!

According to a post from Samsung the microblog – Twitter, if Samsung found that any user post their complaint regarding iPhone 4 on twitter they will be offer the option to exchange their iPhone4 with the latest Samsung Galaxy S smartphones.

“We contacted several users, offering free Samsung Galaxy S to replace them, because we are confident they will get a very amazing post.” Samsung spokesman said.

Samsung this “preferential treatment” is clearly limited to the United Kingdom, Malaysia users do not wishful thinking, or looking forward to iPhone 4 waiting to come!
