The Xiaomi Mi 4 flagship wasn't supposed to come due to its lack of extensive 4G LTE support. However for those who still wants the 5" flagship that comes with a more premium metal frame, Xiaomi Malaysia has finally brought it in but it comes with only WCDMA 3G support.
Unlike other Xiaomi products, the Mi 4 3G version will be sold via Mont Asia, a local distributor which will be having roadshows soon. The device is priced at RM1,199 which is quite expensive considering it lacks 4G LTE and there are other 4G LTE flagship alternatives like the Honor 6, OnePlus One and even the ZenFone 2.
UPDATE: Malaysia will be getting 5 variants of the ASUS ZenFone 2, with price starting from RM599. The mid-spec ZE550ML model will be coming as well. Thanks @im_joshwong for the tip!

HTC is finally bringing its latest flagship smart phone into Malaysia but it may not be the One that you've been waiting for. The HTC One M9 was announced during MWC 2015 and it offers a 5.0" Full HD display with Qualcomm's high-end Snapdragon 810 Octa-Core processor with 3GB of RAM. However the One that's coming to Malaysia is the HTC One M9+ that was launched in China earlier this month.
