Waking up early to attend Celcom’s launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 paid off for retired military office Abdul Hamid Husin as he was gifted the smartphone for being the first in line. Abdul Hamid had arrived to the queue at 6.30am, despite the Blue Cube in Sunway Pyramid only opening it’s doors at 10am.
Abdul Hamid was overhead as saying he chose to upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S5 from his current smartphone for the larger display which is easier to read, although it wasn’t clear as to what he was using before. The current trend of large displays is apparently appealing to the relatively untapped older market who until recently been avoiding smartphones due to the text size.
The crowd assembled to take advantage of the Celcom First offer for the first 100 customers to complement their Galaxy S5 purchase with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 lite for RM55; while the next 100 were offered the Samsung Galaxy Y Neo, also for RM55.
We have covered the Galaxy S5 plans from Samsung earlier this week and those interested in the packages, which goes as low as RM988 for the device, can refer to this story.
