Samsung Malaysia just revealed the local pricing of the brand new Galaxy Note 20 series. Given the premium positioning of the two new Note 20 smartphones, it’s not surprising that these are costly devices: they retail from RM3,899 to a whopping RM5,199.

Just like the regular Note 20, it is offered in three different shades: Mystic Bronze, Mystic Black, and Mystic White.

Every pre-order of the Note 20 will come with a complimentary Galaxy Buds+ (worth RM599), while those who place a pre-order for the Note 20 Ultra will receive the new Galaxy Buds Live worth RM699.
To recap, the new Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the more exciting phone of the two.

As for the regular Note 20, it doesn’t have the sophisticated 108MP triple camera system of the Ultra, but it still offers three different focal lengths: a 12MP f/1.8 primary sensor, a 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide angle shooter, and a 64MP f/2.0 telephoto lens.

Both Galaxy Note 20 devices are powered by the same Samsung Exynos 990 chipset, and the S Pen of the two phones have been improved with better latency as well. There are also other neat new features for the S Pen, including more practical Air Actions gestures.
