We’re less than a day till the iPhone X goes for pre-order officially. Local telcos have wasted no time in announcing their pre-order details, inching towards the official launch date that’s 24 November 2017. Earlier, Celcom had announced midnight delivery for the iPhone X. And this just in: Celcom has released full details of its iPhone X plans and pricing of the devices.
Starting 17 November 2017, you can pre-order the iPhone X 64GB or 256GB with an array of plan options: FIRST Platinum Plus, FIRST Platinum, FIRST Gold Supreme and FIRST Gold Plus.
Based on the attached chart, the iPhone X 64GB can go from as low as MYR3,078 for the top rung FIRST Platinum Plus (MYR188 per month) plan, while the 256GB model costs MYR3,738.
Celcom’s affordable FIRST Gold Plus (MYR98 per month) plan will set you back MYR3,718 and MYR4,378 for the 64GB and 256GB models respectively.
The surprise is, and as speculated in my previous post, is the support for Celcom’s EasyPhone device ownership program.
EasyPhone is a convenient all-in-one plan that bundled the device and mobile plan into a single monthly payment. You wanted affordability? You got it.
With the FIRST Platinum Plus plan, you can take home the iPhone X 64GB from as low as MYR138/month, or the 256GB variant from MYR165 per month. The plans are based on a 24-month contract.
As you may know, Maxis has retired its Zerolution program for the iPhone leaving Celcom an advantage in this space.
The device is Apple’s most advanced and most radically designed yet. It boasts the most powerful mobile processor – the Apple A11 Bionic; the cutting-edge TrueDepth camera, wireless charging and iOS 11. For the first time ever, Apple has adopted an OLED display on the iPhone, which DisplayMate rates the best display on any smartphone yet.
