The most affordable Snapdragon 820 smartphone in Malaysia just got cheaper. The Xiaomi Mi 5 which was originally priced at RM1,549 is now slashed to RM1,399. The price cut is expected since Xiaomi had recently announced a newer Mi 5s in China.
Great smartphones are getting affordable and affordable smartphones are also getting pretty great. These days, with the number of premium flagships launching in Malaysia sporting excellent specifications for a bargain price, we thought we’d throw together a list of high-end flagships that won’t break your bank.

It would take Xiaomi a while before they introduce their latest flagship smartphones in Malaysia. However, thanks to grey importers like DirectD, the Xiaomi Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus are finally here with ready stocks. What’s interesting is that the Mi 5s on offer is more affordable than the current Xiaomi Mi 5 that’s officially available here.
Barely a month since Apple introduced its iPhone 7 duo, Xiaomi has responded with not one but two new flagships smartphones. Following the release of its Mi 5 flagship earlier this year, the Chinese company has introduced an updated version with the Mi 5S. For those longing for a Mi Note replacement, they have also launched a Plus model that comes with a 5.7″ display.
Xiaomi‘s reputation precedes itself. The Chinese mobile internet company is legendary for punching above its class when it comes to consumer electronics and gadgets. When their flagship Mi 5 launched in Malaysia, it looked like a home run, but the truth is a little more complicated than that.
The Xiaomi Mi 5 is officially going on sale in Malaysia beginning this Saturday, 25th June. This time, Xiaomi is selling their latest flagship in stores nationwide via Thorus dealers. For those who are always out of luck during flash sales, this should be good news for you.
If you’re planning to get one yourself, we have a list of where to get it right after the break.
Having a waterproof smartphone not only gives you peace of mind, but you can finally take it to more places like a bathtub or a swimming pool. With more manufacturers jumping onto the water resistant bandwagon, Xiaomi has refrained from doing so. In an interview, he gave two reasons why Xiaomi is holding back from waterproofing their devices.
The Xiaomi Mi 5 is coming to Malaysia but it faces a slight delay. Originally planned for this weekend’s release, Xiaomi has made an announcement that it will be available starting only from 25 June onwards.
That was quick. After its short teaser on Facebook yesterday, the Xiaomi Mi 5 is going on sale in Malaysia starting this Saturday on 18 June. Instead of hitting the Mi online store, the latest flagship
will be sold in stores distributed by Thorus.
UPDATE: The Xiaomi Mi 5 is officially priced at RM1,549. More details here.
Announced during MWC 2016, the Xiaomi Mi 5 is finally heading for Malaysia. Xiaomi Malaysia has just posted a teaser on their Facebook page and we hope it arrives before the Raya holidays.
