Samsung Galaxy S8


Celcom joins the rest of the major Malaysian telcos in offering pre-orders for the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ can be purchased with a 24-month contract on Celcom FIRST postpaid for MYR2,168 and MYR2,498 respectively.

Similar with the official Samsung pre-order deal, you’ll get the Limited Edition Starter Pack (screen protector, clear case, wireless charger stand and USB Type-C cable), a 5,100mAh power bank and Samsung Protection Plus plan.

The blue telco offers two plans for the devices – FIRST Gold Plus or FIRST Platinum.

FIRST Gold Plus gives you 40GB of data monthly (20GB all-day + 20GB weekend), unlimited calls and social chat (WhatsApp and WeChat). The plan costs MYR98/month.

If that falls short of your expectations, you can opt for the top-run FIRST Platinum. The plan provides you with a succulent 60GB of data (30GB all-day + 30GB weekend), unlimited calls, unlimited SMS and social chat. This will set you back MYR150/month.

Bundle pricing for the devices are as follows (before 6% GST):

Galaxy S8

  • FIRST Gold Plus – MYR2,478
  • FIRST Platinum –MYR2,168

Galaxy S8+

  • FIRST Gold Plus – MYR2,808
  • FIRST Platinum – MYR2,498

Overall, Celcom’s Galaxy S8 bundles and plans seem to be the most competitive, and delivers most value, compared to other telcos.
