Celcom EasyPhone makes it easy for anyone to own a Galaxy S8 from RM145/month

Posted:  May 4, 2017   By:    14 comments   


Right after the official Malaysian launch of the Galaxy S8, Celcom has announced an easy instalment program for the latest flagship smartphone. The Galaxy S8 retails for RM3,299 (inclusive of 6% GST) but you can get it from as low as RM145/month on Celcom EasyPhone.

The EasyPhone instalment program is applicable to all Celcom FIRST Postpaid subscribers without an existing device contract. Unlike other instalment offers, there’s no credit card needed. During sign up, an upfront payment is required but this is waived for existing Celcom customers with good payment history.

For better peace of mind, there’s an optional device protection add-on which covers your device from damage and theft for an additional RM30/month. The monthly instalments for the Galaxy S8/S8+ are as follows over a 24-month duration (excluding subscription fee):

Samsung Galaxy S8 – RM145/month
Samsung Galaxy S8 with Device Protection – RM175/month
Samsung Galaxy S8+ – RM165/month
Samsung Galaxy S8+ with Device Protection – RM195/month

If you prefer to swap phones every year, Celcom’s NewPhone will be available for the Galaxy S8/S8+ beginning 26 May 2017.

The standard contract plans are also available with Celcom FIRST Gold Plus and FIRST Platinum. The bundle pricing is the same as their pre-order offer and they are also tied with a 24-month contract. To recap, FIRST Gold Plus plan gives you 40GB of data (20GB all-day + 20GB weekend) for RM98/month, while FIRST Platinum comes with 60GB of data (30GB all-day + 30GB weekend) for RM150/month.

Between 5 to 7 May, Celcom is doing a 3-day promotion where you can get free return Uber rides to your nearest Blue Cube centre. On top of that, they are also opening a special priority lane for customers to get the Galaxy S8/S8+ and a chance to receive a special mystery box. If you’re lucky, your mystery box might give you the chance to purchase a Galaxy S8 at only RM888.

According to Celcom’s CMO, the Galaxy S8/S8+ will take full advantage of their new Lightning Fast LTE Advanced network with 4×4 MIMO and 256 QAM. This will be rolled out beginning August in the Klang Valley and it promises speeds of over 400Mbps.

Looks like Celcom starts to sideline those who are the early adopters of First Gold (without plus)

If you get the chance to purchase the S8 at RM888, isit for the current purchase or 2nd purchase?

    soyacincau

    We’ve asked Celcom and it’s applicable for your first unit.

DeNiro

So we pay RM145 monthly for 24 months and we also need to pay for postpaid plan for 24 months?
Or we can just get the device alone with RM145 monthly without subscribing to postpaid plan?

    soyacincau

    RM145 is just for the phone instalments excluding the postpaid plan. This is only applicable if you have a FIRST Postpaid plan. It can be any plan from FIRST including FIRST Blue.

I went to menara celcom today semarak … they don’t seems to be aware of this promo !! The promoter says their mgmt haven’t told them abt S8 !!!!

I just terminated Newphone package and subcribe for this plan.
This plan is much better than Newphone.
Newphone package is really confusing and can you imagine… customers cant replace for new phone just because a scratch on the phone body.
Avoid Newphone package at all cost, it's really confusing..even celcom staff cant give right information about that pacakage.
