Samsung has announced over Facebook for an exclusive launch event – Samsung Galaxy Note II Preview in Singapore. The Event is on 18th October from 7pm to 830pm.

Shortly after Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 2 in Korea, they have followed up quickly with launching the Galaxy Note 2 in India as well. It is priced at Rs 39,990 in India, which translates to S$924. In Korea, the launch price is at 1.15 million won, around S$1,200. That’s expensive, and almost 20% more than the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE or the iPhone 5. I wonder how accurate is the India prices but if it is, then it could be great to get export sets from there. Rumours are that the British launch is next, with the telcos there getting ready to take pre-orders.
The Galaxy Note 2 Phone (not tablet) is gong to be released on Oct 23 by all three Telcos in Singapore (Singtel / Starhub / M1). The Galaxy Note 2 brings some much anticipated upgrades to the phone and similar styling to the Samsung SGS3. Jump here for links to the pre-order pages. Still considering whether the Note 2 is right for you? Here’s a quick comparison on what specs the new Note 2 offers.
Samsung has announced that the Samsung Galaxy SGS3 LTE enabled will be retailing in Singapore by end September at approximately S$998, (100 dollars more as compared to the non-LTE version). There are rumours that it will be launched at the same price as the SG3S and it is possible since S$998 would put it higher than the iPhone 5 launch price.
It will be equipped with the Exynos Quad Core chip, same as the current version that is already in the market but it will get a bump up to 2GB of ram, which is significantly more than the 1GB for the non-LTE version.
