U Mobile is also offering the Galaxy S8 and S8+ on pre-order starting today 11 April until 13 April 2017. However, when it comes to freebies, the special RM900+ pre-order bundle is only applicable for the first 100 customers. This consists of a starter kit, a 5,100mAh battery pack and Samsung’s Protection Plus plan which extends your warranty to 2 years along with 1 year screen crack protection.

Both the Galaxy S8/S8+ are bundled with U Mobile’s Ultimate Device Plan instead of their popular Hero Postpaid offering. The Galaxy S8 is going from RM1,819 (without GST) while the bigger S8+ is offered from RM2,159 (without GST). The bundled pricing are as follows:

Galaxy S8

Ultimate Device Plan 60 – RM2,419
Ultimate Device Plan 90 – RM2,179
Ultimate Device Plan 130 – RM1,819

Galaxy S8+

Ultimate Device Plan 60 – RM2,759
Ultimate Device Plan 90 – RM2,519
Ultimate Device Plan 130 – RM2,159

All bundles are tied with a 24-month contract and there’s an upfront payment of RM360 (UD60), RM600 (UD90) and RM960 (UD130) which will be rebated back to your bill over 24 months.

To recap on the plans, the entry-level Ultimate Device 60 plan (RM60/month), comes with 5GB of data, 3GB of Video-Onz, Unlimited Music-Onz and App-Onz usage along with a bundle of 60 minutes of phone calls. Meanwhile, the mid-tier Ultimate Device 90 plan (RM90/month) gives you 7GB of data, 5GB of Video Onz, unlimited music-onz, unlimited app-onz and unlimited voice calls to all networks.

The highest Ultimate Device 130 plan offering comes with 10GB of data, unlimited Video-onz, unlimited Music-onz, unlimited App-onz plus unlimited calls and 65 SMS to all networks. For excess usage, U Mobile Ultimate Device Plan charges 9 sen/30 sec for calls to U Mobile and 15 sen/30 sec to other networks. Meanwhile, SMS are charged at 3 sen to U Mobile and 8 sen each to others.

Only 3 colours are available namely Midnight Black, Maple Gold and Orchid Gray. Looking at the pre-order page, it appears that U Mobile is only catering for new subscribers only as the page requires you to pick a new number. Payment can only be done via credit card and they accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

7 Comments for U Mobile offers the Galaxy S8 from RM1,819


why is this offered under Ultimate Device?
its similar to iPhone's offering.
its so weird.
shud be offered under Hero plans.
maybe bcoz Mobile wants to make more money from subscribers.
Wonder how many will take up the UD plans.
these are not so attractive compared to Hero Plans.


    Umobile and digi have more expensive plans when signing with a phone compared to their normal plan. hence you may see their phones slightly undercut maxis and Celcom in terms of price.

    I personally advise caution especially Umobile. because the network is really not on par with the other big boys.

    I think you need to ask them directly, I thought the same with the P10 but luckily after asking them u can take the bundle package with the Hero Plan


Where is Selkom and Diji? Lambatnya

    orang biasa

    Relax la… Dia orang revise package become more competitive and attractive.


Getting a high-tech device with stone-age internet connectivity… go figure.
