Samsung & Grab Partner to get Galaxy S8 and S8+ Pre-order Customers to their devices!
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are quickly making their mark on the Malaysian market. The new flagships were sold out within 3 days during pre-orders and is looking to become one of the best selling devices in Malaysia to date. On record, Samsung Malaysia’s Vice President for Mobile and IT Business, Mr. Lee Jui Siang, confirmed that the pre-orders of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ out sold last year’s Galaxy S7 edge by a whopping four times! Mr. Lee attributes this increase to only the increased allocation of pre-order units to Malaysia but also the diversification of their pre-order channels with some of their biggest online and offline partners such as Lazada, 11street, and Senheng.
As promised by the South Korean company, pre-orders could be picked up starting May 4, 2017. In anticipation of this, they’ve partnered up with Grab to make sure pre-order customers can get to their chosen Samsung Experience Stores. Pre-order customers have already gotten a special promo code which allows them to get to their chosen store for FREE. You’re not going to need to worry about parking at crowded malls (it is a long weekend). The offer also entitles Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ pre-order customers to a ride back. If you’re a pre-order customer, check your email for an email for Samsung to take advantage of the offer!
A quick recap of the Galaxy S8 and S8+: the device is the first Samsung device with their new “Infinity Display” technology which marries their already successful curved displays with a bezel-less design. In addition to this major change, it’s also the first ever Samsung device to do away with the physical home button in favour for a pressure sensitive sensor placed behind the screen. It also comes with the latest 10nm mobile processor technology which is not only more powerful, but also even more power efficient than previous processors. With the cutting edge of technology, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are definitely going to be really good performers.
