  • Samsung Malaysia officially announces electric blue and gold for Galaxy S5 smartphone

    Samsung Malaysia officially announces electric blue and gold for Galaxy S5 smartphone

    While Samsung did initially announce that their Galaxy S5 smartphone would come in black, electric blue, gold and white, both electric blue and gold were not officially available in Malaysia initially. Samsung Malaysia has since then revealed that the Galaxy S5 is now available in both gold and electric blue. Tech specs and features for the two colours hasn't changed though as you'll still get an IP67 certified water and dust resistant casing, 16MP ISOCELL camera and 4G LTE connectivity. The retail pricing for either colour will also remain the same at RM2399. Here's what Samsung had to say about it:

    "The introduction of the two colour variants continues to emphasise the iconic design of the GALAXY S5. We hope to create opportunities for our consumers to improve their everyday lives, be it through a fashion trend, a favourite feature or simply, a holistic smartphone experience. This fuels our desire to deliver people-inspired innovation with essential features for day-to-day use." Lee Dong Yong, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics

  • U Mobile lowers No Upfront Samsung Galaxy S5 deal to RM355

    U Mobile lowers No Upfront Samsung Galaxy S5 deal to RM355

    Previously, U Mobile had bundle deals going on for the Samsung Galaxy S5 with no upfront payment at just RM555 for new Standard Chartered JustOne Platinum card subscribers. However, with the recent RM200 trade-in discount from Samsung Malaysia, U Mobile are now lowering the price to RM355. All of the old conditions remain in place though, so if you want the RM355 No Upfront deal, you will have to successfully get a Standard Chartered JustOne Platinum Card, sign up for a U Plus plan and trade-in your old smartphone. Do note that the trade-in smartphone does add any discount value to the deal like the Samsung Malaysia promo, but according to U Mobile, you can bring in any phone with an IMEI number for the trade-in. In line with the Samsung promo, the extra RM200 trade-in discount is only available until 31 May 2014, so if you fulfill all the conditions and want the Samsung Galaxy S5 at a rock bottom price, then do check out this deal. The existing RM555 discount remains valid until 30 June 2014. For more details check out the table and links in this article.

  • U Mobile details Samsung Galaxy S5 no upfront payment plans

    U Mobile details Samsung Galaxy S5 no upfront payment plans

    After teasing about their NO Upfront payment offer for the Samsung Galaxy S5, U Mobile have finally revealed their plan bundles for the smartphone. The lowest standard pricing will begin from RM999 but those who sign up for the Standard Chartered JustOne Platinum credit card and the U Plus Plan bundle will get a rebate of RM444, lowering the price to RM555. That promo lasts up to 30 June 2014 and is only applicable after the credit card has been approved (if you don't get approved, you won't get the RM444 rebate) but for the rest of us U Mobile requires a sign up for their U58, U88 and U Plus plans under a 24 month contract. Unfortunately, the NO upfront payment has strings attached as you only qualify for it if you pay using credit card and subscribe to auto debit, while U58 bundle plan users are not eligible at all.

  • U Mobile teases Samsung Galaxy S5 offer, NO Upfront payment

    U Mobile teases Samsung Galaxy S5 offer, NO Upfront payment

    While many of the other major Malaysia telcos have already come up with their Samsung Galaxy S5 bundle plans, U Mobile has only just started with a teaser ad. However, the teaser ad from U Mobile offers the Samsung Galaxy S5 with no upfront payment, something which could be tempting for those who just want to pay the subsidized price. In our experience this means that the subsidized price isn't as low as that offered by some of the other telcos but anything lower than the current retail price of RM2399 is a good thing we think. The teaser ad doesn't reveal any other details except that it will be available at U Mobile stores on 25 April 2014 so set that date free on your calendar should you be waiting for a Samsung Galaxy S5 from U Mobile.
