Galaxy Note Fan Edition is Arriving in Malaysia

Samsung Malaysia Electronics is proud to unveil the Galaxy Note Fan Edition, designed to deliver all key Galaxy Note features so loyal Note users can strike the perfect balance of work and play. The Galaxy Note Fan Edition, made especially for the dedicated Note community, is a new device that has been engineered with unused components from the Galaxy Note7.

“The Galaxy Note Fan Edition is Samsung’s way of showing its commitment to Note fans. We work very closely with dedicated specialists to reuse and recycle unused components from the Note7 to form the Galaxy Note Fan Edition. This is also our way of lessening the carbon footprint for our future generation. We would like to say thank you to our loyal Note fans for continuously supporting us through thick and thin. The Galaxy Note Fan Edition is for you”, said Mr KM Liew, Head of IT and Mobile Business, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

The Galaxy Note Fan Edition, sporting an affordable price tag, is an entirely new device that inherits the design and innovative functions and offers the same productivity and entertainment features of the Note7. This includes an enhanced S Pen that boasts a pen tip of 0.7mm, mimicking a real pen to offer users a smoother writing experience. The S Pen is also useful in translating foreign languages online, and a hover-over function to translate words directly into the desired language.


Galaxy Note Fan Edition users can unlock their smartphone using biometric authentication technologies such as iris and fingerprint recognition, allowing for a more secure login. In addition to that, the Galaxy Note Fan Edition comes equipped with ‘Bixby Home’ and ‘Bixby Reminder’ to assist users in daily tasks and elevate the smartphone experience. With an IP68 rating, the Note Fan Edition’s body and S Pen are dust and water resistant to a maximum depth of 5 feet for up to 30 minutes.

Compared with the Note7, the Galaxy Note Fan Edition has an upgraded processor which makes it capable in handling heavier computational lifting; and a new and safe 3,200mAh battery which is compliant with Samsung’s 8 point safety check. The device has also met the safety standards of the relevant industry and regulatory bodies and has been reviewed by leading independent quality assurance experts to give Note users the extra peace of mind.


The key aesthetic features that set the Galaxy Note Fan Edition apart are its symmetrical edge design and its ‘Fan Edition’ logo on the back.
