Just recently Digi had quietly introduced a special promo for its lower commitment Smart Plans, where you can get 3GB of data, 100 minutes of calls and 100 SMS each month for only RM36. Initially offered for a limited time at on-ground stores, Digi has published the offer on their website and you can now subscribe to the plan hassle free from their online store.
UPDATE: The RM36 Smart Plan promo with 3GB Data, 100min calls and 100 SMS is valid at Digi stores from now until 15th July. The promo subscription fee of RM36 is only valid for the first 12 months.
For those craving for more internet for the least amount of money, Celcom appears to have the best deal in town with its FIRST Basic 38 plan. You get 3GB of data, 50 minutes of calls and 50 SMS each month for just RM38. To top it off, you are even allowed to carry forward unused data to the following month.
Now Digi appears to have something up their sleeves which could offer more value at an even lower price. A reader had brought to our attention on a new unannounced RM36 Digi plan and the folks at MDroid.my have gotten more info on the new counter plan offering.
The 5.5″ Redmi Note is now available on contract with DiGi’s Smart Plans. Retailing at RM509, it is offered for free if you sign up with 24 months contract of Smart Plan 108 which comes with 5GB of data.
The full Redmi Note bundled pricing are as follows:
DG SmartPlan 78 (24 months) – RM169
DG SmartPlan 108 (24 months) – RM0
During sign up, DiGi is asking for 1 month subscription fee and an upfront payment of RM360 (Smart Plan 78) or RM528 (Smart Plan 108). If you have been an active DiGi postpaid subscriber for the last 12 months, they will waive the advance payment for you. In addition, DiGi is also offering extra RM30 rebate that’s reflected on the 2nd month bill.
To recap on the specs, the Redmi Note is Xiaomi’s affordable phablet with a 5.5″ HD 720p screen, an Octa-Core 1.7GHz processor with 2GB RAM, 8GB of on-board storage and a large 3,200mAh capacity battery. It also gets a 13MP camera that shoots Full HD videos and a front facing 5MP camera. You can compare the specs of the Redmi Note versus other Xiaomi smart phone models in our comparison post.

The Redmi 1S is Xiaomi’s most affordable offering in Malaysia at the moment that’s priced at RM419 outright.

The affordable Redmi 1S will be offered on contract with DiGi very soon. With its low price of just RM419, you can expect the device to be offered for free on contract but it will probably tie in with a long 24 months duration.
As comparison, its high-end Mi 3 was offered for Free with 24 months contract of DG SmartPlan 148. It is likely that the Redmi 1S would be offered for free as well but at lower monthly commitment plans.
