If you’re looking for a new mobile plan that also includes a device bundle, there’s good news. RedOne is offering a new promo for their Smart68+ postpaid plan where you can pick up a brand new Vivo Y15 2020 smartphone for just RM100. However, it is only available for non-Celcom Mobile Number Portability (MNP) port-in customers.
With the Smart68+ plan, users will get 20GB of 4G LTE data quota with unlimited call to all networks and an additional of 10GB for RedVideo. For text messaging, users will be charged for RM0.05/ SMS to redONE, RM0.10/ SMS and RM0.20/ MMS to all networks.
RedVideo is a value-Added Service (VAS) that enables users to watch high definition online videos at any time of the day. This service supports video streaming channels such as YouTube, Netflix, iflix, viu, and Astro Go among others. As RedVideo comes with its exclusive additional 10GB 4G LTE data in the plan, users can just enjoy watching video without worrying about monthly data quota deduction anymore.
If you decide to go with this postpaid plan, you will be contracted for 24 months. On top of that, customers will need to pay an advance fee of RM220 (inclusive of 6% service tax). This fee will then be rebated over the next three months.
According to RedOne Customer Service, you will also need to pay an RM10 registration fee. In this day and age, it’s uncommon for telcos to require that you pay registration fees, so it’s surprising to see RedOne charge you for this. Therefore, if my math is correct, new customers who sign up for this plan will need to pay a total of RM402.08. (RM220 + RM68 + RM4.08 + RM10 + RM100= RM402.08).
That being said, when we called up RedOne customer service to find out how someone can sign up for this promo, they were unaware of this promotion. However, we have reached out to RedOne about this matter, and we will update this post as soon as we hear back from them.
Vivo Y15 2020 is an entry level phone with a large 5,000mAh battery, which is always nice to see. However, it does not feature support for fast charging. It comes with a 6.35” Halo FullView Display that pushes a HD+ resolution of 1544×720 pixels. It runs on a MediaTek MT6762 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
For taking selfies, the tiny notch on the display houses a 16MP f/2.0 front camera while the rear gets a triple-camera setup. There’s a 13MP f/2.2 wide camera, an 8MP camera with an f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2MP f/2.4 depth camera. For biometric security, this smartphone comes with a fingerprint scanner at the back and also supports face unlock.
According to the spec-sheet, it supports Bluetooth 5.0 as well as 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi. The device runs on Funtouch OS 9 that’s based on Android 9.0. It comes in two colour options—Burgundy Red and Phantom Black.
However, RedOne Customer Service aren’t aware of this promotion and they just stated that they currently only have Smart68+ with free Vivo Y11. So if you’re interested with this postpaid plan, you can just go to the nearest redONE branch or shop in Malaysia and find out more about it.
