Shopee monmartechnology.. very fast shipping!



Back sticker still intact.. if removed the shine and shift effect of the red is stunning.. orange reddish

I always shunned samsuck because of its heat problems.. last samsung was note 5.. but my dad has been using the note 8,9 and now 10 and everytime he ask me troubleshoot his phone, i feel it sucks. This has improved bounds n leaps. The 120hz screen is so smooth..Now i dont really miss my hw mate 20x anymore. The size is perfect for my usage..
Hi, can check if it comes with sealed box? Need to run any set up before it can be used locally? Interested in getting one too.

Its completely sealed box.

No need to run any special setup at all.. just change language to english from korean, login ur google account. Use smart switch wirelessly to trf stuff from uour old phone.

Just that its preloaded with the KT telecom bloatwares.. i just disabled it and hide from the menu. Lazy to find out and load KR generic firmware. Might try if i can find the instructions.

Damn tempted now, wonder what's the main diff between the US and Korean sets apart from the storage, not sure if the 5g bands will have any issue in SG either.

Yes I bought the white one, Taiwan model though. Never regretted this purchase SD. The Exynos S20 + red I bought, sold within a few days. Smartest thing to offload exynos version, IMHO.

Didn’t realise that China / Hong Kong / Taiwan using the same SD865 5G variant: SM-G9860 / SM-G9880 Dual SIM.


Not sure what goes behind the scene that make Samsung HQ make the surprise decision to switch S.Korea and Taiwan to Snapdragon variant.

Thanks for the info. I have took the plunge and ordered the Korea Red version. There's a $30 off promo from shopee and 3.5% cashback promo from shopback.
Computeron and winorlose like this.

China, Taiwan and HK have been getting the Snapdragon variant for sometime. So far I've been buying these variants from S10 Plus (bought from HK retail), Note 10 Plus (Taiwan) and S20 Ultra (TW). The last 2 sets I bought from Lazada.

For Korea I believe they only switched to SD from the S20 series.
