Smartphone shipments in Malaysia had dropped by 5.9% in 2016 versus the previous year according to IDC Malaysia’s latest report. They reckon this was likely caused by negative economic factors which include our depreciating ringgit against the US dollar.
Despite the annual decline, smartphone shipments had picked up in the last quarter and the top 3 brands were still able to increase their respective market share.

It’s raining phones with ASUS’ 38 Days of Storm giveaway. If you need a phone that doesn’t require frequent charging, here’s your chance to win yourself a brand new ZenFone 3 Max.
The ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom is much improved over its original ZenFone Zoom. Announced at CES 2017, the new photography-centric device is thinner, sleeker and it packs a large 5,000mAh battery. If this is a device you’re looking for, it isn’t as expensive as you think.
We saw this as a leak earlier but now it’s official. The ASUS ZenFone AR is the first smartphone in the world to be Tango-enabled and Daydream VR ready. This means it’ll be able to handle Virtual and Augmented reality.
ASUS’s ZenFone Zoom was an interesting smartphone. It had a full 3x optical zoom lens array wrapped in a smartphone body that didn’t feel incredibly bulky — which was rather refreshing…even if the camera and phone itself was unimpressive. Its follow up ZenFone 3 Zoom, on the other hand, seems a little underwhelming especially in the whole zooming department.
ASUS is launching two smartphones tomorrow and it will be their first smartphone with Google Tango technology. Expected to be called the ASUS ZenFone AR, it comes equipped with several cameras at the back for augmented reality.
With just two weeks away until CES 2017, ASUS has just released its teaser video for its upcoming Zennovation launch event. Now we can confirm that they would be launching not one but two new ZenFones to kick off 2017.
The latest ASUS ZenWatch 3 has finally arrived and it’s the latest smartwatch from the Android Wear camp. This time, the ZenWatch 3 goes round with a circular 1.39″ AMOLED display that does 400×400 resolution.
With the full ASUS ZenFone 3 family hitting the market, the Taiwanese maker is about to release another smartphone that focuses on photography. Looking at the current lineup, this could be the successor of its current ASUS ZenFone Zoom.
If that’s too much and if you’re looking for something more affordable, you might want to consider the 5.5″ ZenFone 3 Deluxe which is now on sale in Malaysia.
