It fairly surprising to see local telcos to launch their own smartphone as telco usually offers new smartphone launched by tech giant that bundled with their own network plan. However, Maxis has officially launched their own smartphone, the NeXT M1 for just RM78 per month which includes 4GB of internet quota and 50 minutes free call!
It is known that the NeXT M1 has a 5.5 inches display, an octacore SoC and a 13MP rear camera. Maxis has yet to reveal more specification of this smartphone but it is highly likely an entry level smartphone.
Apart from smartphone, the NeXT M1 plan comes with 24 months contract along with 4GB data and 50 mins talk time. User can also top up 500MB data for RM5, 1GB/day for RM8, or 3GB data/ 3 days for RM12.
The Maxis NeXT M1 comes with 24 months warranty for the device and 12 months for charging adapter and data cable. As for its screen, Maxis also covered it for 6 months. Maxis will also provide 1-to-1 replacement if the NeXT M1 broke within 24 months.
