Malaysia, this is how you can get the Samsung Galaxy Note 7

UPDATE: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch in Malaysia delayed to September

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is official and we're pretty sure you want to know how and when you can get one.

Samsung's official preorders will happen from 8-10 August, with the phone arriving 19 August. What will you pay for the privilege? RM3199, including GST. 

While the official preorder page isn't up yet, you can bookmark it so you can grab a unit. Samsung is making available only 4000 units for the preorder. As for colour variants, you have a choice of Black Onyx, Silver Titanium and Gold Platinum.

Samsung skipped the number 6 for the Galaxy Note series, perhaps to standardise the naming conventions for the Galaxy flagship series. With a 5.7in display, 4GB RAM and a minimum of 64GB of storage with microSD expandibility and a brand new S-Pen, the Galaxy Note 7 looks like it's going to be as big a hit as the Galaxy Note 5 was.

Stay tuned for details of telco promos; so far Maxis has been the first to take registration of interest from its customers for the phone, we're betting other telcos will follow suit soon.

UPDATE: 11street is now offering preorders on its site, and saying there will be 'mystery gifts' with purchase. There is also an option of purchasing a Galaxy Note 7 bundled along with a Spigen case.

Digi has also put up a teaser on its Facebook page confirming it will be bringing the phone in but no availability or promos have been announced as yet.

UPDATE: Samsung has confirmed its goodies for preorders. If you preorder it, you will get 10 per cent off the RRP, a wireless charging stand, 10200mAh battery pack and get it a day before the phone is sold to the general public - on 18 August.

UPDATE: Digi, Celcom and U Mobile have announced their preorder offers for the phone. For Digi, you can already book the phone online and existing customers will get their advance payment waived and be able to purchase the device for RM1650 (Digi 148 plan) or RM1210 (Digi 238 plan). These plans will also offer an extra free 5GB of Internet.

Celcom is offering a similar bundle as Samsung's preorders, with 10 per cent off RRP, a battery pack, wireless charger stand and travel adapter. Preorders are available at Celcom's official page.

As for U Mobile, it is offering the same package as Celcom and Samsung but with limited vouchers given out daily. The freebies are also limited to the first 30 customers to make an order, according to the terms and conditions.

Maxis was the first to announce registration of interest (ROI) and as predicted, is offering the phone with its hire purchase Zerolution plan. Sign up and you'll pay no upfront price for the device, instead you pay RM101 a month, if you eschew opting into its yearly upgrade and protection programmes.

UPDATE: According to Soyacincau, Samsung has just announced that the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in Malaysia will be delayed. This is due to Samsung facing global supply constraints, likely due to extremely good response. Instead of August 2016, the device will make its official debut in the country in September. An exact date has not yet been confirmed as of press time.
