DiGi returns Galaxy Nexus bundle from RM1399

DiGi has revised its Samsung Galaxy Nexus offering with bundle offer from as low as RM1,399. This was the same offer when it started pre-orders before official availability in Malaysia. However DiGi later revised its offering with only 24 months option and the device going for a higher RM1,999.

Now the Galaxy Nexus can be yours from DiGi at the following subsidised pricing:

DG Smart Plan 48 (12 months) – RM1,749
DG Smart Plan 48 (24 months) – RM1,549

DG Smart Plan 68 (12 months) – RM1,649
DG Smart Plan 68 (24 months) – RM1,399

As usual, you get RM5/month rebate if you opt for auto billing. Unfortunately you don’t get the extra savings enjoyed previously if you go for the 24 months subscription of DG Smart Plan 68.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus now on U Mobile

For those that are eyeing for the Galaxy Nexus, now there’s a 3rd choice if you wish to purchase it on contract. U Mobile now offers the Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from as low as RM1,349 on its U88 plan.

As usual you have 3 plan options – U28, U58 and U88 that comes with pre-bundled data of 1GB, 2GB and 3GB respectively. All contracts are tied with 24 months period. The next question would be when is Maxis turn to bundle the device.

DiGi revises Galaxy Nexus bundle offering

DiGi has made a drastic change on its Galaxy Nexus offering after more than a week of its pre-launch sales. They have stopped offering the device from RM1,399 with 12 and 24 months options completely. Now the device is offered at RM1,999 with just RM100 off.

Just like the iPhone 4S deals, the new offer subsidises less on the phone but they give extra rebates on the monthly subscription instead (RM28 for DG Smart Plan 48 and RM38 for DG Smart Plan 68). In terms of contract period, DiGi now only offers a single option of 24 months duration. It also appears to be no upfront payment required since you’re paying almost full retail price for the device.

So how does this affect the overall cost? If we compare with the previous plan, it is much higher overall. For the current 24 months DG Smart Plan 48, the cost of ownership is RM1,999 (Device) + RM672 (Subscription) which totals up to RM2,671 (previously RM2,581). On 24 months DG Smart Plan 68, now it costs RM1,999 (Device) + RM2,911 (subscription) that totals up to RM2,911 (previously RM2,551). All prices are after auto-billing rebates.

Overall, those that have ordered earlier would have gotten a better deal overall especially those that took up the 24 months DG Smart Plan 68 option. For more information, head over to DiGi.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus: Celcom & DiGi Plans compared

UPDATE: Celcom finally reveals official Galaxy Nexus bundled plans. Details are the same however there’s no mention of RM60 rebate.

UPDATE 2: DiGi has made some drastic changes on their Galaxy Nexus offering. They no longer offer 12 months option and the offered device price is now RM1,999 with more rebates on the monthly subscription fee. Check out the latest comparison at the bottom of the post after the break.

Original Post Before 16th January
The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be officially available in Malaysia on Friday the 13th. DiGi has fired the first salvo by offering pre-orders ahead of launch from RM1399. Meanwhile Celcom too is expected to offer the Galaxy Nexus from as low as RM1368.

So what’s the difference between the 2? First is the contract duration where DiGi offers 12 & 24 months while Celcom offers 12 & 18 month options. Next is the subscription plan where both offerings are different.

On DiGi, the subscription fees are the lowest but that’s because it only comes with mobile internet data and calls & SMS are charged separately. This is perfect for those that hardly make much calls or SMS and rely greatly on mobile internet for communication with apps such as WhatsApp, FB Messenging and etc. For Celcom, all 3 plans on offer comes with bundled voice calls and SMS with its Celcom Exec plans.

So how much does it cost to own a Galaxy Nexus on these bundled plans? Read on for more.

Galaxy Nexus to be available on both Celcom & DiGi

UPDATE: Unconfirmed Celcom Galaxy Nexus plans.

UPDATE 2: DiGi starts pre-order of Samsung Galaxy Nexus from RM1,399.

If you’re looking for bundle offer for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, you can now expect both DiGi & Celcom to offer the device at subsidised pricing with the usual plans like the Galaxy Note. As usual Maxis is still staying away from Android devices, except for its recent Motorola RAZR bundling.

So how much would the Galaxy Nexus go for on contract? Since the Galaxy Nexus is priced between the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note, we are expecting the contracted pricing as follows:

  • Celcom RM1150-RM1300 (on 18 months Celcom Exec 250)
  • DiGi RM1249-RM1399 (on 24 months DG Smart Plan 68)

Originally planned for December release, the Galaxy Nexus is currently slated on the 13th January, which is just 2 Fridays away. For those who can’t wait, you can get a Galaxy Nexus from grey importers for as low as RM2040.


DiGi to offer Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

The Galaxy Nexus is the one of the earliest gadgets to look out for in 2012. Samsung has hinted that it will be available in Malaysia just before Chinese New Year and we are seeing grey importers selling it just slightly above RM2000.

For those that prefer to buy their gadgets with contract, DiGi seems be to dropping some hints on the Galaxy Nexus from a little tweet of theirs. The recent mention of it does arouse some expectation that telco will be offering it soon.

Previously, the predecessor model Nexus S was offered by Maxis for an ridiculously high price of RM2499 outright. Today Maxis is throwing its Nexus S for a special price of just RM799 outright while stocks last. Hopefully DiGi will bundle the Galaxy Nexus more competitively.

So how’s the Galaxy Nexus? Check out our hands-on first impression and sample shots taken from its 5MP camera.


Galaxy Nexus going for RM2040 with free shipping

Still can’t wait to get a Galaxy Nexus? Now an online retailer is selling it for just RM2040.78 with free shipping within Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei. Obviously this is a grey import (AP unit) which they offer 1 year warranty.

They are also offering Easy Payment Plan that lets you purchase over 6 or 12 months installment from RM187/month. For those without credit card, there’s a Cash on Delivery option where you pay by cash upon delivery to your doorstep.

The price and payment options are very tempting but if you can wait, we would recommend getting the official Samsung Malaysia unit with full service & warranty support locally. The Galaxy Nexus go officially on sale in Malaysia in a couple of weeks time before Chinese New Year. Since an AP set is now going as low as RM2040, our earlier predicted price range of RM2000 and below is very likely.
