Next, a couple of local Malaysians were invited onstage to share their personal experiences in using the smartphone weeks before the launch. 

A live demonstration was also conducted onstage for the AR Doodle, which is one of the highlights for those who are active on social media. 

However, the key highlight for the Galaxy Note series has always been the S-Pen, where this time around, the S-Pen has broken boundaries with its technology.

Well, I am quite sure that you may have read all the raving reviews for the new Note 10 and 10 Plus, and for me to put in all the specifications and features would be another overkill. 

I also did a speculation article about Note 10 and 10 Plus in Malaysia at the end of July, which was a few weeks before it was officially launched in the USA. 

Actually, I will not do any Note 10 reviews until I personally try it myself, as I often travel, I would love to see how the Note 10 works for my travels. 

For the specifications of the Note 10 and 10 Plus, I recommend you visit the Samsung Malaysia official website to see them. Everything you need to know is there.

Final Thoughts on the Galaxy Note 10 and 10 Plus Launch in Malaysia

Just so you know, all the photos taken in this article are from my Samsung Galaxy S10+ smartphone. Ever since changing to the S10 Plus, I have found no reason to carry my bulky camera around. 

To be very honest, I find that the Note 10+ is absolutely amazing, especially with all the new features added. I currently use a Galaxy S10+ and it is quite similar to the Note 10+. 

If you have been pondering about switching your older smartphone to a new one, then I would easily recommend you consider changing to the Note 10 or 10+. 

The Galaxy Note 10 and 10 Plus Launch in Malaysia is just the beginning and you can expect more innovation and amazing smartphones from Samsung coming your way.
