Update: Samsung has confirmed the Galaxy Note 8 pre-order details. The article has been updated.
Ahead of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 pre-order session in Malaysia which will take place from 5 to 10 September, a flyer regarding it has been leaked online, which Samsung Malaysia has now confirmed. It not only revealed the amount of benefits that will be made available to pre-order customers, but also the retail price for the new smartphone which is expected to be available here in mid-September.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be priced at RM 3,999. Pre-order customers will also receive RM 321 cash rebate for their Galaxy Note 8, bringing the price down to RM3,678 (an 8% discount). They will also receive a 5,100mAh battery pack, clear cover, and Samsung Protection Plus for their new smartphone. The Samsung Protection Plus is an extended warranty program that covers 1-year extended warranty that covers mechanical and electrical breakdowns, as well as a one-time screen crack replacement for one year.
This pre-order campaign is vastly different to the pre-order campaign run by our neighbours in Singapore. Over there, Samsung is bundling a free DeX Station, as well as a host of vouchers for PC peripherals to complement the DeX Station. After the pre-order campaign, there will also be vouchers and discount bundles for Note 8 accessories as well as PC peripherals.
All things considered, the pre-order for the Galaxy Note 8 makes the smartphone very attractive to own indeed. It is actually even better than that of the RM3,699 Galaxy S8+ pre order in Malaysia, which did not come with a cash rebate (there was a Starter Kit instead). Plus, the extended warranty and screen scrack protection could save users quite a bit in the long run.
