    Samsung has finally brought the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to South East Asia and Malaysia in particular. The 5.5-inch smartphone running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be available starting October 19 for RM2299.

        South East Asia doesn’t have LTE telcos to begin with.
        So, no.

      Got mine and it doesn’t have multi-window or the screen recorder function. Annoying having to wait for some OTA update.
