 President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics, Mr. Lee Sang Hoon proudly introduces Samsung Galaxy Note5  & Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. 
 The Note Legacy is a reflection of five outstanding years since Samsung created its Galaxy Note Series. The sought after revolutionary Galaxy Note Series took the mobile nation by storm when the first Galaxy Note was unveiled at IFA in 2011. Known for its larger display size, its incomparable S Pen, and its multitasking capabilities each Galaxy Note in the series provided users with an all-round immersive experience. Upholding the Note Legacy alongside with Samsung are award-winning producer, actress, and passionate arts advocate Puan Sri Tiara Jacquelina(Note 4); Actor, Director and Singer Aaron Aziz (Note 3); Talented Singer, Songwriter and Entrepreneur Yuna (Note & Note2); TV host, Emcee and Writer Lynn Lim (Note 4); and Malaysia's hottest Youtube sensation combo, Jinny Boy and Reuben Kang(Note 4). Their are all users of Note Series, all five celebrities showed their enthusiasm and support at the launch event in Sunway Pyramid.

The story of the Note in Malaysia began in 2011 with five inspiring stories that formed the Note Legacy. In 2011, the original Note started a mobile revolution and a new standard in the smartphone culture. The following year, Samsung worked with Yuna to create and compose her first ever music video, Sparkle, which was shot and animated entirely on the Galaxy Note 2. Aaron Aziz then helped build the Note story with his involvement in 2013, where he inspired Malaysian fans to widen their horizons and follow their dreams through his notes. Creativity was then seen at its finest in 2014 when Puan Sri Tiara Jacquelina, Lynn Lim as well as Jinnyboy & Reuben Kang took the S Pen functionality of the Note 4 to greater levels of productivity and shared with us their personal "live" arts.
