Getting a new mobile phone every two years when you recontract your mobile plan is the norm in Singapore. Not only does this practice ensure you get the latest model, such as the iPhone XS, you also get a generous discount on the price (which SIM Only plans won’t give you). Often, such discounts can go up to $200 or more! However, you may find yourself stuck with an expensive mobile plan for the next two years. Thankfully, we have the Singtel Combo XO plan.
If you read our previous article, you already know the Singtel Combo XO plan is one of the best, value-for-money Singtel mobile plans. And here’s the best part – thanks to the Singtel Combo XO plan, you can now get the latest mobile phones, including the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, at a heavily discounted price AND enjoy a large 18GB data allowance at only $78/month.
Here’s the list of popular mobile phones you can get with the Singtel Combo XO plan, divided into 2 sections depending on your budget:

The Samsung Galaxy Note9 has been hotly anticipated, and now that it’s released, it’s redefined what a smartphone can be. With the largest screen ever on a Samsung Galaxy Note, and an equally massive 128GB storage space (at least!), there’s no question about Samsung’s intent to reclaim their dominance.
And the best part is, Singtel gives you a $200 handset discount for the Samsung Galaxy Note9, when you sign up for a Combo XO plan, which means that the price tag is still kind to your wallet, even though the Note9 has just been released.
Recommended mobile phone: Samsung Galaxy Note9
Huawei P20 and other mobile phones you can get for $0 with Combo XO
When we see a $0 mobile phone being offered, we may dismiss it as a budget model with weak specifications. But with the Singtel Combo XO plan, you have many different mobile phone models that can be bought at $0 to choose from, which you won’t pay a single cent for.
That may seem like an incredible variety of choices, but the truth is, the choice is practically made for you.
|Model Name||Discounted Price||Retail Price||Specifications|
|Huawei P20||$0||$898||5.8-inch display, 20MP + 16MP Leica dual camera, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage|
|Huawei Mate 10||$0||$888||5.9-inch display, 20MP +12 MP Leica dual camera, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage with microSD card slot|
|Huawei Nova 3i||$0||$398||6.3-inch display, 24MP quad camera, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage|
|Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo||$0||$368||5.5-inch display, 13MP dual camera, 4GB RAM, 32GB storage with microSD card slot|
|Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro||$0||$198||5.0-inch display, 8MP camera, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage with microSD card slot|
I was really surprised to see the Huawei P20 on this list because, let’s face it, it’s Huawei’s flagship model right now, especially with the new Leica dual camera feature. And now, thanks to Singtel Combo XO, you can own it, for free!
Recommended $0 mobile phone: Huawei P20
What else should you know about the Singtel Combo XO plan?
The Singtel Combo XO plan gives you huge data and huge phone discounts. We’re talking a whopping 18GB of data a month, along with 300 minutes of local talktime and 300 SMS/MMS, only for $78! What’s more, you can share your data with up to 3 MobileShare supplementary lines, so you don’t need to worry about using up your massive data allocation.
But just in case you’re a huge data guzzler on the go, don’t forget that you can enjoy Singtel WiFi at more than 1,800 hotspots across the island. And if you still manage to exceed your data allocation despite all that, excess data usage is only $18 for every 18GB, and capped at $188 a month. That’s insane value.
Singtel also offers you data-free Spotify Premium at a massively discounted price of $1 for the first 2 months, and $7.90 per month for the next 10 months. That’s only $81 a year – instead of the $118.80 you’d normally pay.
Of course, all the phone models listed above are subject to stock availability.
