UPDATE: DiGi has added more plan options and shorter contract tenure for its Galaxy S III bundle. Details here.
DiGi has started taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III. The operator puts the recommended retail price of the device at RM2,199, slightly above our RM2,100 price prediction. The Galaxy S III is available from DiGi for as low as RM999 — as the earlier clues suggest — with a 24-months contract.
This time around they are only offering DiGi Smart Plan 68 and 88 with only 24 months contract duration. Bundled pricing as follows:
DG Smart Plan 68 (24 months) – RM1,149
DG Smart Plan 88 (24 months) – RM999
In addition to the pre-order, DiGi has also confirmed its roadshow locations to promote the market launch of the latest and greatest smartphone from Samsung and it looks like gadget fans in Johor Bahru and Penang will be able to get in on the action as well.
Following DiGi’s pre-order, we’re expecting Celcom and Maxis to show their cards in the coming days as well. From what we know, the planned May 31 market availability of the Galaxy S III is still solid, so we don’t expect operators to make the device available earlier than that. But if you do see original Samsung Galaxy S III units on sale before May 31, do let us know.
