UPDATE: Updated to include pre-order offerings from Senheng and Samsung Malaysia
The Samsung Galaxy Note7‘s arrival into Malaysia is fast approaching. While Samsung Malaysia’s own pre-order sale will only begin on the 8th of August, there are already several other website that you can get it from. Here’s a list to help you pick out the best value pre-order.
11street recently announced that they will be putting the Galaxy Note7 up for pre-order. Along with the smartphone, the first 100 buyers will also be receiving a free mystery gift as well. After some inquiry, 11street revealed that the mystery gift would be the same thing Samsung Malaysia was offering with their pre-order sale, plus a ROCK Back case. The smartphone — which comes in Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium and Black Onyx colours — can be pre-ordered for RM3,199 from the 3rd to the 18th of August on 11street’s website. Pre-ordered devices are expected to start shipping on the 19th of August 2016.
Lazada Malaysia is another place that you can pre-order Samsung’s latest phablet. The website is currently taking pre-orders for all three colours — Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium and Black Onyx — of the Samsung Galaxy Note7 priced at RM3,199. Customers who pre-order the smartphone will receive a Samsung Wireless Charging Stand that supports fast wireless charging for free.
If you’re interested in pre-ordering this handset from Lazada, we would suggest that you do so via ShopBack because you can receive 4% cashback on your purchase, plus RM200 off the price of the smartphone thanks to a promo code that you can obtain here. Simply buy the Note7 through ShopBack and you can get the discounts. Keep in mind that this promo code is only available until the 8th of August 2016, but ShopBack will have more promo codes that will be released at a later date.
Lazada expects the pre-ordered devices to be shipped starting the 22nd of August 2016.
GEMFIVE is the third and final place that is offering the Samsung’s brand new Note for pre-order.
