After a successful pre-order session, the stunning Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are hitting the road. The stunning pair will be available for sale starting 5 May, and will be part of a three-day roadshow that also promises amazing deals.
By the looks of things, the Galaxy S8 is hot. All Samsung pre-order units were snapped up within the allocated three days. In Korea, Galaxy S8 pre-orders hit a record-breaking 550,000 units in two days. Even analysts are impressed. They expect Samsung to achieve a record profit in Q2 2017.
So, back to the roadshow. From 5-7 May 2017, simultaneous roadshows will be held across Malaysia – Sunway Pyramid (Klang Valley), Queensbay Mall (Penang) and Sutera Mall (Johor Bahru). In addition, all 76 Samsung Experience Stores (SES) will be participating in the three-day promotion.
Naturally, there’s going to be goodies thrown in as part of launch promo. Buyers of the Galaxy S8 or S8+ (or both!) will get a Limited Edition Starter Kit (clear cover, screen protector, wireless charger stand and USB Type-C cable) and a 5,100mAh battery pack.
Samsung is also extending an exclusive purchase-with-purchase offer where you can enjoy 50% off retail price for the new Gear VR with Controller (RRP: MYR499) and new Gear 360 (RRP: MYR999).
In with the old, out with the new (or is it the other way around?)
If you’re dying to upgrade from your current phone, you’re in luck. There’s a limited time Trade-Up campaign where you can trade-in your phone and get a rebate for a new Galaxy S8 or S8+. Interested? Bring your smartphone (it needs to be in a working condition) to any Samsung Experience Stores nationwide, roadshow locations or authorised dealers.
Visitors to the roadshows will get to check out Samsung DeX – the new service that transforms your new Galaxy S8 or S8+ into a desktop PC. Simply dock your device into the DeX station, and get a full-blown desktop experience. The docking station costs MYR459 and will be available starting June.
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are undeniably Samsung’s best, and sets the benchmark for the smartphone space in 2017.
