Samsung’s latest flagship devices–Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ officially made an entrance in Malaysia today. The first telco to ride the S8 wave is Celcom, introducing a device ownership program called EasyPhone.

Alongside Samsung, other local telcos and retail partners, Celcom also offered pre-orders for the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The devices hit stores nationwide on 5 May 2017.

EasyPhone is really an instalment program, or easy payment program if you will. The great thing about it is, you don’t need a credit card. You can take home a Galaxy S8 home for MYR145 per month, or a Galaxy S8+ for MYR165 per month.

Note that there’s upfront payment for new customers, while existing Celcom customers with good payment history will have this waived.

You can also opt to add device protection, which covers the device from damage and theft, for an additional MYR30 per month.

Here’s the full price list:

  • Galaxy S8 (RRP: MYR3,112.26) – MYR145/month
  • Galaxy S8 with Device Protection – MYR175/month
  • Galaxy S8+ (RRP: MYR3,489.62) – MYR165/month
  • Galaxy S8+ with Device Protection – MYR195/month

As mentioned in a previous post, you can also bundle the devices with Celcom’s FIRST Gold Plus or FIRST Platinum plans.

FIRST Gold Plus gives you 40GB of data (20GB all-day + 20GB weekend) for just MYR98 per month, while FIRST Platinum delivers you a whopping 60GB (30GB all-day + 30GB weekend) for MYR150 per month.

Plans are based on a 24-month contract.

With bundled plans, naturally the devices cost less, thanks to higher subsidies.

Lastly, all buyers will get a mystery box. And if Lady Luck smiles upon you, the mystery box might give you a chance to buy a Galaxy S8 for MYR888.

And wait, there’s another way to own the Galaxy S8 from Celcom.

    I know that there are many telco offer good plan but the bad thing is u have to tie up by a contract for almost 2 years, u will not be able to switch to other telco if u wish to do it during that time.

    With the latest launching of Samsung, S8 has become a new transformation of smartphone as many new features have been added. However, due to its price,anyone know better recommendation for this plan?

  • syarifah

    Bayar secara ansuran mmg bagus tapi perlu terikat pada kontrak selama 2 tahun, kloi u mau tukar kepada mana mana telco pada masa tu u tak dpt tukar sbb perlu tunggu sampai kontrak habis.

  • Winson

    this EasyPhone is so nice , so i can choose either Samsung S8 or S8+ without paying upfront fees , it is so nice ~~~~~~~~!!!!

    • Wisby

      One month rm145 is consider overprice though… buy it directly is even cheaper.

  • nurlizamohammad

    Skrg samsung sudah keluar samsung s8 yg terbaharu, i mau tukar kepada tu tapi harganya sgt mahal. Sesiapa tau ada apa-apa pelan daripada pelbagai telco yg lebih berbaloi ?
