Confused about which Galaxy device(s) to buy? Are you looking for the best Samsung technologies? Do you want long battery life? A big screen? A tablet for work and play? A pair of wireless earbuds? Check out the list below to help with your decision.
Back in February, Samsung introduced a new sizzling colour for its Galaxy S20+–Aura Red. It was special for two reasons—it was called the Galaxy S20+ Jennie Red Edition (yes, Jennie from superstar all-girl K-pop band Blackpink) and it featured suped up internals and 5G support, exclusive to South Korea’s KT 5G network. Malaysian Blinks must have been crying foul but hang on a minute…Samsung Malaysia is now bringing the Aura Red model to Malaysia.
Samsung’s sizzling hot flagship series—the Galaxy S20 was unveiled earlier today and as usual, the brand wasted no time to announce pricing and availability details for the Malaysian market. The great news is that you can pre-order the Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra 5G starting from today, at 5.00PM.
