Xiaomi Mi Note available from RM488 on Celcom contract


Xiaomi’s 5.7″ Mi Note phablet is now available on contract with Celcom FIRST postpaid. Retailing at RM1,549 outright, the Mi Note can be yours from as low as RM488 (excluding GST).

To recap on the specs, this is Xiaomi’s most premium offering in Malaysia at the moment with a 5.7″ Full HD display, a 2.5GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM and it comes with a huge 64GB of storage. It also has a 13MP main camera with OIS, a 4MP Ultrapixel camera and a 3,000mAh capacity battery. Connectivity wise, it supports 4G LTE and has dual-SIM slots in nano and micro-SIM sizes.

If you’re thinking of getting the Mi Note on contract, Celcom is bundling it with either the FIRST Basic 85 plan at RM85/month or FIRST Elite plan (2 SIMs included) at RM235/month. Only 24 months tenure is being offered and the bundled price are as follows:

FIRST Basic 85 (24 months x RM85) – RM1,238
FIRST Elite (24 months x RM235) – RM488

During sign up, the FIRST Basic 85 plan requires RM250 upfront as advance payment while the FIRST Elite plan asks for RM1,000 upfront, both of which will be rebated back to your monthly bills across 10 months. For more info, head over to Celcom’s Xiaomi Mi Note page.
