The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be on sale starting tomrorow and if you’re planing to get one with Maxis, it will be offered from RM1,699 with its MaxisOne Plan. Based on past offers, the RM1,699 bundle price is likely to be tied with 24 months contract of MaxisOne Plan of RM128/month. Outright, the Galaxy Note 4 is priced at RM2,499 for the Exynos N910C version that comes with 32GB of storage.
The Gear Circle wireless bluetooth headset (worth RM299) will be given out for free to the first 100 people that signs up with them at their roadshow.

The MaxisONE Plan is ideal for people who talk and text a lot thanks to its unlimited voice calls and SMS proposition. It may be great for sales people or love birds, but internet centric users may find 1GB (MaxisONE Plan Lite) / 2GB (MaxisONE Plan) monthly quotas to be quite little. If you need more internet for your mobile usage, Maxis charges RM30 per GB which is quite a high price to pay.
For those who need more than 3GB a month, Maxis now offers a new data add-on which brings the extra cost per GB below RM20/month. You can now top up 3GB for RM58 or 6GB at RM116 which is equivalent to RM19.30 per GB.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be offered on contract on U Mobile and now they have started its registration of interest process. If you register yourself before 16th October, they are offering additional RM100 rebate. So far there’s no mention if this rebate can be used to offset the device price or its monthly subscription fees.
Samsung Malaysia will be having the consumer launch this coming Friday, 17th October and all 4 telcos including Maxis, DiGi and Celcom will be offering the Galaxy Note 4 on contract. For U Mobile, we would expect the Galaxy Note 4 to be offered on its usual U58, U88 and U Plus postpaid plans with 24 months contract. If you dislike forking out a huge sum during sign up, U Mobile is likely to offer a zero upfront advance payment on its higher plans provided that you take up their auto-billing offer.
To register your interest, head over to their Galaxy Note 4 registration page.

UPDATE 3: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be officially available in Malaysia on 7th November. Pre-orders start 31st October.
Maxis continues to arouse curiosity around its #NextBigThing which is likely to be the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Following its obvious teaser and random apple gifts, we can safely eliminate the Galaxy Note 4 from the equation.
Furthermore, the Galaxy Note 4 Malaysian launch has already been announced for 15th October and Maxis has already mentioned that it is coming soon on their network. Besides, the tagline for the Galaxy Note 4 is #morethanbig.
Going back to the recent teaser, and if it is indeed the iPhone 6, it looks like Malaysians can pre-order for one online without the hassle of long queues. The next question is when exactly? Both China and India have commenced pre-orders and it will be officially available on 17th October.
Are we getting it on the same day? It could be possible, considering the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has already passed SIRIM certification 2 weeks ago. Another strong indication is the drop of prices for imported units where it is being sold lower than the expected retail price. Just a few weeks back, the iPhone 6 Plus could fetch as high as RM7,500-8,000 but you can get one now for less than RM3,200.
Let’s see what happens in this coming Friday. In case you missed it, even SenQ has teased both devices are coming soon to their stores.
Thanks @JaronYap for the tip!
