Well, the answer is yes: Celcom will indeed offer iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to their customers very soon. That being said, don’t get too excited just yet.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 isn’t the only new device that Maxis is offering today. The telco has just added the Samsung Galaxy Ace Style smartphone to its device bundle, offering the mid-range Android smartphone with LTE connectivity from as low as RM199 – the retail price is RM799.
Now that all big four telcos in Malaysia have unveiled their Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pricing, let’s take a look at what all of them have got to offer. Maxis is offering the device from as low as RM1,699, Celcom from RM988, DiGi from RM1,169 and U Mobile from RM1,099, but there are a lot more to the bundles than the final price of the device.
You didn’t think that we would forget about U Mobile, did you? U Mobile is also offering the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 from as low as RM1,099. But wait, the telco has got more to give its customers like a trade-in offer, 0% easy payment plan, no upfront payment, and loyalty rebates.
DiGi was the first telco in Malaysia to start its Samsung Galaxy Note 4 teaser and registration of interest and if you’ve been waiting to see what the telco’s got to offer, here it is. DiGi is now offering the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 from as low as RM1,169 when you sign up for a contract with the telco.
Apple sure stole almost all the headlines when it announced all the new devices and updates late last night but now it’s Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s turn, in Malaysia at least. Today is the consumer launch of Samsung’s latest phablet, there are roadshows going on in five states around Malaysia, but if you do not wish to pay full price to own the device, which costs RM2,499, you can now purchase it from Maxis from as low as RM1,699.
Maxis Hotlink is currently having a promotion called “Ohhsome October”, offering 1GB of data for only RM5. The catch? It’s valid for one day only. The promotion starts today and will be available until the end of the month. If you need more data for longer validity, Hotlink has got more to offer as well.
