Over the last few weeks, we have seen quite a lot of reports, leaks and rumors on Samsung's upcoming phablet and today we're just a week away from the official launch event which is happening in NYC on August 13. While the internet is pretty confident about the look and feel of the Galaxy Note 5 which looks a lot like a bigger Galaxy S6 with an S Pen, there's no actual release date yet.

There has been reports that Samsung plans to roll out the Galaxy Note 5 into major markets the week after it's formal launch and we're yet to confirm that fact. But here in Malaysia, Samsung devices usually come in pretty fast (unlike the iPhone) and this year is no difference as an internal source has just revealed that the Galaxy Note will be making it's way to Malaysia by the first week of September.

This report is pretty plausible as the device itself has already been certified through SIRIM as noted by Mdroid. While there's no concrete data on this report, the source mentioned that Digi, Celcom and Maxis are already gearing up to offer the Galaxy Note 5 by September 5. Whether this ends up being true or not, we'll just have to wait for the unpacked event next week.

As for the expected price of the Galaxy Note 5 in Malaysia, it should be around the RM 2,999 ball park.
