In China, it’s going to be called the Mai Mang 6 and it will be unveiled this coming Friday, 22 September. Shortly after that, Huawei Malaysia is launching the nova 2i on the following week. Are these two phones the same? Here’s a closer look at what the Nova 2i might look like.
I don’t think you need me to tell you that Sony’s smartphones, as of late, are not what you’d call….value for money. In fact, I may have strongly suggested in the past that a lot of their devices are grossly overpriced for the features they offer. So, with every new Sony flagship smartphone, I always have my fingers crossed that they will finally come to their senses.
Well, it’s that time of the year again and we’ve got Sony’s second big flagship smartphone launch in Malaysia. This time, the company has pushed out a phone that looks nearly identical to its predecessor, is priced roughly the same, but has a brand new “first in the world” camera feature.
At this point, you might be wondering “now where have I heard this before?” and you wouldn’t be the only one. But this time, I think things aren’t that simple.
Taking its photography game up a notch, Huawei will be unveiling its Nova 2i smartphone that comes with not one but two sets of dual-cameras. We just received the invite and the Malaysian launch is happening on 26 September 2017.
This week, if your feed looks anything like mine, it has probably been awash with news of Apple‘s new iPhones. iPhone launches are always exciting (I mean, if you’re into incremental updates, largely similar designs and Apple playing catch up), so it’s not surprising that everyone wants a piece of your attention.
Amidst all that coverage, there is one big question that still looms overhead: How much will it cost in Malaysia? How much of my hard earned, ever depreciating Ringgits will I have to drop to get my hands on the latest and greatest from Apple?
Well, we were wondering too so we did the one thing I got into writing to escape from — math. We looked at the past pricing trends, compared them with our neighbours down south and cross referenced them with the math our colleagues did over at TheSkop. And by “we did the math” I mean Alex did the math, I just stood next to him and pursed my lips.

When it comes to Apple, they have always tried to make things simpler for the general consumer, up to a point that they don’t disclose key hardware details on their keynote or on their product pages. To find out how much RAM and exactly how big its battery capacity is, we usually have to wait for tear downs or benchmarks from the final device. This time, we are able to get a peek through a certification in China.
If you’re looking for the latest flagship that runs on the very latest version of Android, the Sony Xperia XZ1 has finally arrived in Malaysia. It was recently announced just a few weeks back during IFA 2017 and it’s now officially launched on our shores with Android 8.0 Oreo running out of the box.
Google’s very own smartphone, the Google Pixel, is getting a new successor early next month. They have just released a teaser video and a registration of interest website which points to 4th October as the launch date.
Apple‘s new iPhone launch took place just yesterday with the company announcing the iPhone 8/8 Plus and the iPhone X. Today, it appears you can already place your pre-orders for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus on Lazada.

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 official Malaysian launch is taking place next week. This is their latest flagship phablet that comes with an S Pen and a new dual-camera system with dual OIS. The Galaxy Note8 retails for RM3,999 in Malaysia and earlier this month Samsung had offered a pre-order promotion where you can get RM888 worth of freebies and rebates.
If you’re still trying to get one, you can expect it to be available at their launch venue. To spice things up, they are also inviting a Korean celebrity at the Malaysian launch event.
