First in line was Perodua sales executive Fang Chii Chun, 42, who started lining up at 7.25am.
“I’ve owned three to four Samsung phones over the years and decided it’s time to upgrade to the latest model from my current Galaxy S4 I am using,” said Fang.
She wanted to get the Green Emerald S6 Edge but it was not available so she got the Gold Platinum instead.
National badminton hero Datuk Lee Chong Wei also made an appearance and gave away autographed badminton racquets for 80 lucky customers at the store.
Lee who is a Samsung Brand Ambassador said he loves the new flagship models as they are more comfortable to use, lighter and the screen is much clearer.
He is currently using the White Pearl S6 and Gold Platinum S6 Edge.
According to Lee, he has been a long-time Samsung user and had used the Galaxy S4, Note 3, Galaxy S5 and Note 4 over the years.
Initially announced on April 2 in Malaysia, the smartphones feature an improved 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilisation, rapid and wireless charging and Quad HD display.
According to Samsung Malaysia Electronics vicepresident of mobile, IT and digital imaging, Lee Jui Siang, the pre-order allocation for the Galaxy S6 Edge Gold Platinum was taken up in just five days.
“The design is beautiful and If you look at the phone, it is as if you are looking at a piece of jewellery,” he said.
The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are available now for RM2,599 and RM3,099 (prices inclusive of 6% GST) respectively.
