Digi lets you pre-order the Galaxy S8/S8+ on contract

The Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ is also available for pre-order through Digi. Similar to other pre-order promotion, you also get the same amount of freebies that are worth RM916.

The pre-order promo runs from 11th April until 13th April 2017 with stocks expected to be delivered to you beginning 4th May 2017. You get a choice of 3 different postpaid plans with a contract tenure of 24-months across the board.

When you look into their postpaid plans (Postpaid 78, Postpaid 108, Postpaid 138) for device contract, they are not as compelling as their on-going postpaid plans such as Digi Postpaid 80, Postpaid 110 or their latest Postpaid 150 Infinite. This is a similar situation with U Mobile’s Ultimate Device Plan.

The entry-level Postpaid 78 (RM78/month) plan gives you 12GB of data (6GB all-day + 6GB weekend), unlimited calls and 200 SMS while its Postpaid 108 comes with 18GB of data (9GB all-day + 9GB weekend), unlimited calls and 400 SMS. It’s highest Postpaid 138 (RM138/month) option includes 24GB of data (12GB all-day + 12GB weekend) with unlimited calls and SMS.

It interesting to point out that these plans are even more expensive than Maxis which is often regarded as the most expensive in town. As a comparison, MaxisONE 98 (RM98/month) comes with 20GB of data (10GB all-day + 10GB data weekend) while MaxisONE 128 (RM128/month) comes with 30GB of data (15GB all-day + 15GB weekend). Both MaxisONE plans also come with unlimited calls and SMS.

The bundled Galaxy S8/S8+ pricing on Digi are as follows (excluding 6% GST):

During sign up, Digi also requires an additional upfront payment of RM360 (Postpaid 78), RM640 (Postpaid 108) or RM920 (Postpaid 138) which will be used to offset your future bills. If you don’t want to pay cash upfront, Digi is also offering 0% interest easy payment plans for both device and upfront payment via credit card in 24 months instalments.
