[Update] Maxis has just confirmed that it has renamed the plan into MaxisONE plan and MaxisONE plan lite. The changes have been reflected in the post.
As promised, Maxis has finally announced a pre-order bundle for the Xiaomi Mi 3 with its new MaxisONE plan postpaid plan. Available only with a 24-month contract, the device can be purchased at a rebated price of RM389.
The Xiaomi Mi 3 can be purchased for RM389 with a 24-month ONEplan contract, or RM589 with a ONEplan Lite contract of the same length. The full device bundle breakdown is as below:
As you can see, the plan does not differ from other MaxisONE plan bundles, as the plan fixes the advance payment to four months’ monthly commitment. Also, the only colourway available under this plan is Metallic Grey. Unlike DiGi’s plan for the device, the estimated delivery date for the Mi 3 is set to be two weeks earlier, starting from 13 June onwards. However, this plan does look like it offers less value for money compared to DiGi’s bundle, which offers the device for free with the DiGi SmartPlan 148.
Now that both DiGi and Maxis have revealed their bundle plans for the Mi 3, it is now left to Celcom to announce its bundles for the Mi 3. Judging by these two plans already in the market, however, let’s just hope Celcom manages to introduce a more competitive bundle.
