UPDATE: Telco comparison updated to reflect Maxis‘s 12 months & SurfMore 50 option for Galaxy Note 3 bundling.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is officially available in Malaysia today with the retail price of RM2,399. The unit which we are getting is the 4G LTE version with 32GB of on-board storage. Those looking forward to get one today on contract will have a choice of 4 telcos to choose from – Celcom, DiGi, Maxis & U Mobile. To make it easier to decide which telco and plans to go for, we’ve compiled a reference comparison of each plan offering as well as minimum cost of ownership inclusive of subscription and device cost.
Contract duration wise, all telcos are offering 24 month duration with the exception of Celcom which also offers 12 month and 18 month options. If you’re looking for the cheapest device pricing on contract, U Mobile is currently the lowest at RM999 which is meant for eligible Loyal customers that sign up with their Ultimate Device 158 plan. However when it comes to total minimum cost of ownership, the lowest cost definitely goes to Celcom’s First Prime + 1GB bolt-on internet plan with a contract period of just 12 months. Of course, the only caveat is that the minimum cost is calculated based on usage within its allocated data, calls & sms quota without incurring excess usage.
Head after the break for the full telco comparison for the Galaxy Note 3.

UPDATE: Maxis contract plans for Galaxy Note 3 finally revealed from RM1,199.
Finally Maxis has emerged with a teaser that they too will be offering the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 during launch day. Looks like the big 3 telcos Maxis, Celcom & DiGi will be pushing the device simultaneously while U Mobile has recently just closed its registration of interest. So far, Maxis has yet to reveal their Galaxy Note 3 bundled pricing.
At the moment, both DiGi & Celcom are offering the new 5.7″ Android phablet on contract with only 24 month duration from as low as RM1,319 and RM1,538 respectively. For Maxis, we would expect them to bundle it with the usual SurfMore & Talkmore plans and hopefully they will offer it with a shorter 12 month contract duration.
To recap, the Galaxy Note 3 is officially available in Malaysia this Wednesday, 25th September. We will be getting the 4G LTE model that’s running on a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. On launch day, Samsung Malaysia will be having a roadshow event at their new Samsung Experience Store at the Gardens where the device will be available for purchase outright without contract. The Galaxy Note 3 is priced at RM2,399 while its Galaxy Gear smart watch is priced at RM999.
