The Nexus 4 is now available for pre-order at DiGi through their online store. Retailing at RM1,649, it goes for as low as RM1,499 with a single option of DG Smart Plan 88 on 24 months contract.
While the phone subsidy looks little, DiGi has focused more of its savings on the monthly subscription. For a start, the new Smart Plan 88 now comes with 8GB data instead of 5GB in conjunction with its Jualan Internet Promo. In the first 6 months, there’s an extra rebate of RM30/month followed by the next 18 months with RM25/month rebate which calculates to additional RM630 savings. That’s inclusive of the RM5/month rebate if you opt for auto-billing.
During sign up, there’s no advance payment requirement but you would still need to pay 1 month subscription of RM88/month during sign up. Those that pre-order now will have their units delivered directly by next week. For those that don’t want to commit too much for their monthly usage, unfortunately there’s no lower options and contract duration for now.
To recap on the specs, the Nexus 4 which is based on LG’s Optimus G runs on a 1.5GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm S4 Pro processor mated with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. On the front it comes with a 4.7″ IPS display that does
