Maxis Partners With OnePlus To Become Exclusive Carrier In Malaysia
Maxis and OnePlus are proud to announce the launch of the OnePlus One (One) in Malaysia. Following months of preparation, the One will now be available exclusively with Maxis, Malaysia’s leading communications service provider, starting tomorrow 22 April at all Maxis outlets nationwide. The 64GB Sandstone Black OnePlus One, at an RRP of RM1,199, will be available with the MaxisONE Plan at just RM859.
OnePlus has a unique approach to launches of its devices around the world. Until recently, invites were needed to buy the One worldwide. Malaysia, however, will be the first country in which the One is launched in Maxis stores and without invites. Maxis’ expansive reach and commitment to an unmatched customer experience made them a natural choice for OnePlus’ first carrier partnership.
The latest partnership is yet another coup by Maxis in bringing cutting-edge devices from around the globe at the best value.
“In the Internet age, we know what our customers crave for, and that’s the best devices at competitive prices. We are proud to be working with another cool and innovative brand that holds such individuality around the world. With an attractive MaxisONE plan package and a superior data network, our customers can expect nothing short of a thrilling mobile experience,” said Dushyan Vaithiyanathan, Maxis’ Head of Consumer Business.
Despite being a very young company and just over a year old, the One has been praised around the world as one of the best devices on the market, combining best-in-class specs with beautiful design. Following the incredible support from Malaysian users, Maxis and OnePlus are thrilled to be able to bring the ‘Flagship Killer’, and a wide range of OnePlus accessories, to the region in an unprecedented fashion.
“As we grow, it is increasingly important to work with the right partners to provide the best experience. Going offline is a first for us and we’re very happy to have found a solid partner in Maxis with whom we can take our first steps,” said Carl Pei, co-founder of OnePlus.
