[ORIGINAL STORY, 653PM]:
As you might have heard, Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be released in Malaysia on Friday, 7 November. In case you are still sceptical of the announcement made by the
Yellow Man DiGi, Maxis has also confirmed that it will be offering the new smartphones from Apple on the same day.
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.
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.
It looks like Maxis has just unveiled the pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on a contract, sort of. The telco has just shared a Facebook post saying that they will be offering the Galaxy Note 4 from RM1,699 and the first 100 customers will be getting a free Samsung Gear Circle too.
The MaxisONE postpaid plan that was announced a few months back is a very attractive postpaid plan that offers limitless calls and SMS, but there is one major problem with it – the data offered is very limited. Maxis has just introduced a new data add-on plan giving you 3GB of data for only RM58/month, and you can even share the data freely with up to 5 devices across any smartphone, tablet or even smartwatch.
The Sony Xperia Z3 has already been launched in Malaysia for about a week now and it looks like the local telcos are finally starting to offer it with their device bundles. Maxis is now offering the latest flagship smartphone from Sony, the Xperia Z3, from as low as RM1,499 – it even comes with a free SmartWatch 2 for the first 100 customers who sign up for this bundle.
Look at what Maxis just teased on its main page, the telco has just put up a teaser telling fans of the Samsung Galaxy Note series to “anticipate the arrival” of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Unfortunately, unlike DiGi who opened a registration of interest page for you to fill in your details so they can contact you when the device is available, all Maxis has is just a teaser.
