Samsung Malaysia is giving away a power bank and more with a Galaxy S8/S8+ pre-order
Those pre-ordering a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8+ from Samsung Malaysia will be receiving some free items for their new handset. That's because the Samsung unit is trying to entice consumers in the country into reserving one of the two new models. A useful 5100mAh power bank is one of the items. It's the perfect accessory for power users or for those who plan on showing off their new phone to friends, family and strangers that they bump into.

Other items being given away by Samsung Malaysia to consumers pre-ordering the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ include a Limited Edition Starter Kit. This contains a clear cover, a screen protector, a wireless stand and a USB Type-C cable. And the last freebie is a one-year Samsung Protection Plus subscription. The latter extends the warranty on either model by one additional year, and also covers one year of protection for the phone's display. With the warranty in force, a cracked screen can be replaced for free (one time only).

The power bank, Starter Kit and Protection Plus subscription are valued together at $203 USD. Not a bad haul at all. Reserving a unit in Malaysia requires leaving a deposit equivalent to $68 USD on Samsung Malaysia's pre-order page, which can be found by clicking on the sourcelink. Pre-orders begin in the country at 10 am local time on April 11th, and run until 11:59 pm local time on April 13th. The phones will be available a day early, on May 4th, for those who pre-order one of the two models.

In other markets like the U.S., Samsung is tossing in a Gear VR headset, a controller, and some content from Oculus with the pre-order of  a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+. The value of that package is $130.

they need to regain the market. Samsung is getting more and more irrelevant in Malaysia, overshadowed by Asus, Vivo and Oppo and Huawei.

Irrelevant? That's far fetched. They've been offering similar gifts with the purchase of their flagship devices, dating back to the S5 days, to further justify their high price tag ( https://goo.gl/yIFJyt ). I'd much prefer they keep it that way than start taking advantage of the average Joe's iGnorance, blatantly separating them from their cash like fools...

@mr elecrifyer Do your posts have to insult all iPhone users, nearly every time? It's annoying.

Nobody cares about what is or isn't relevant in Malaysia.

This is a very good deal! Malaysians almost always get great deals when it comes to pre-ordering flagship phones. Meanwhile, in Indonesia we only get USD50 cashback (for certain credit cards), wireless charging and 1 year screen replacement warranty.
