Just moments ago, Maxis has announced that Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One XL smartphones are now able to utilize its LTE network which the company launched on 1st January 2013. Both smartphones are now officially the first batch of devices that Maxis 4G LTE network will support in 2013.
Judging from the announcement that we received from Maxis, it seems like there is no specific 4G LTE plans since users are able to purchase either of the devices with Maxis standard TalkMore and SurfMore postpaid plans. Additionally, this announcement also marked the addition of Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One XL to the telco’s postpaid offerings.
While they have yet to appear on Maxis’ website when this article was written, customers are now able to obtain Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One XL from the telco at Maxis Centres in KLCC and Taman Tun Dr. Ismail. They are priced from RM 1,099 and RM 1,199 respectively – applicable when customers purchase either of the devices with SurfMore75 or TalkMore78 with 3GB Mobile Internet plans.
