Look at what DiGi has just unveiled, as teased a couple of weeks back, DiGi has finally decided to unveil its Xiaomi Redmi 1S packages. DiGi is now offering the mid-range Android smartphone from the Chinese company for free when you commit to a contract with the telco’s postpaid plan.
Apple is rumored to announce its next generation iPhones in about a month but if you do not wish to wait, you can get an iPhone 5s from DiGi from as low as RM159, no advance payment required. This means that you only pay for the subsidized price when you sign up for the offer.
Want to purchase a brand new smartphone at a reduced price but do not wish to sign up for a postpaid line to get tied for a year or two? DiGi is now offering the Lenovo A369i for only RM150, down from RM485.80, and it comes bundled with a DiGi Easy Prepaid, one year of free internet and 24 hours of free calls and SMS.

Here is a list of all the phones you can get for “free” from local telcos – Maxis, Celcom, U Mobile and DiGi.
[UPDATE: 200PM, 23 July] DiGi has posted teaser for Xiaomi Redmi 1S on its Facebook page which is the first confirmation of the tips we received yesterday. Read more to see it.
While the newly announced Xiaomi Mi 4 is busy getting everyone’s attention for today, let’s not forget that the fledgling Chinese manufacturer still have plenty of devices under its wing. One of them is the Redmi 1S which is the most affordable Xiaomi’s smartphone in Malaysia at the moment.

What might looked like just another random car accident in Kuantan, the violent reaction from the young lady against an elderly man in this video is enough to make it go viral. Nicknamed as the #CDM25 incident which is a reference to the registration number of the Peugeot 208 that was driven by the lady, it has sparked plenty of reaction not only among local netizens but also throughout the country.
Even DiGi has joined the bandwagon as well and has offered to fix the vehicles that were involved in the accident.
Now that Celcom has announced a new plan for its iPhone 5S bundles at only RM48 a month, how does it stack up against what Maxis and DiGi have got to offer with their similar monthly commitment bundles? We compared the new RM48 plan from Celcom, Maxis’ iValue Simple and the latest iDiGi 50 so hit the break to check them out.
Without a doubt, the Xiaomi Mi 3 is one of the most exciting devices to be released in the country. Featuring flagship-level specs at almost a third of what you’d expect to pay for a flagship smartphone, the device is also one of the most elusive, available (officially) only via Xiaomi’s flash sales at an eye-wateringly affordable price of RM769.
But what if you are one of the many, many frustrated people who can’t get their hands on the Mi 3 via the flash sales? Your only hope lies with the local telcos, specifically the big three: DiGi, Maxis and Celcom. Of the three, DiGi is the only one offering the Mi 3 both with an off-contract prepaid plan as well as a postpaid plan – though that offer has since ended. On the other hand, the postpaid bundles offered by all three telcos give steep discounts on the device price, so if you’re interested, read on.

As the only local telecommunications provider who has not collaborated with other companies to share precious 2600MHz spectra for its LTE rollout, DiGi is looking at possible alternatives for its LTE rollout which it commenced several months ago. One such move is to refarm its 1800MHz band to support its 2 x 10MHz spectrum in the 2600MHz band as awarded by the Malaysian government.
[UPDATE @ 12:45pm] DiGi has updated its site with more details on the new iDiGi 50 plan. More below.
DiGi has unveiled a new, more affordable postpaid plan for the iPhone. The new iDiGi 50 plan offers a generous 2GB of data as well as free calls and SMS, and also offers a slight rebate on the iPhone 5s with a 12-month contract.
