Samsung’s Galaxy Note8 will retail in Malaysia for RM3,999, RM300 more than the Samsung Galaxy S8+’s RRP of RM3,699. Samsung Malaysia will also begin taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note8 on the 5th of September and this pre-order period will last all the way until the 10th of September 2017.
Customers who pre-order this smartphone during that period will receive goodies worth RM888. These goodies include a cash rebate of RM321, a 5,100 mAh battery pack worth RM269 and Samsung’s Protection Plus programme worth RM298. The Samsung Protection Plus program will give you 1-year screen crack warranty, that allows for a one-time free screen replacement, as well as a 1-year extended warranty.
This pre-order bundle is pretty generous and is pretty similar to the pre-order package Samsung Malaysia offered with the Galaxy S8. However, this time you get a cash rebate of RM321 which effectively brings the price of the Note8 down to RM3,678 which less than the Galaxy S8+’s RRP.
Unfortunately, unlike our neighbours down south, Malaysian pre-order customers will not be receiving a free DeX Station.
To place your pre-order, you can do so at Samsung Malaysia’s website. However, do note that they will only begin receiving orders from the 5th to the 10th of September 2017. 3 colours will be available – Midnight Black, Orchid Gray and Maple Gold.
