Apart from smartphones, the official Malaysian Mi Store is now carrying more products which was previously only available through grey importers. The latest to hit the store is the Mi Sphere Camera and the Mi Dashcam that come with local warranty.
Xiaomi’s Redmi 5 series is getting expanded by the end of this week. After introducing its single 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant for the Malaysian market, Xiaomi will be releasing two more models to cover different price points.
If you thought Xiaomi‘s products had no prestige and were only bought by those who couldn’t afford something better, then you might be surprised to find out who loves their Xiaomi Mi Power Bank. Yeah, you didn’t read that title wrong: It’s Paris Hilton.
Xiaomi has always been the king of value for money and when it comes to smartphones priced under RM1,000, it is hard not to recommend the Redmi Note 4. It offers top-notch specs and a decent build at a price that’s hard to beat. When the Redmi 5 Plus was introduced a couple of months back, the specs are roughly the same as the current Redmi Note 4.
For those looking for a proper upgrade, Xiaomi has officially announced its latest Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro. The event took place in India, which is Xiaomi’s biggest market outside of China.
Xiaomi will be announcing its latest mid-range smartphones, the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro, in India this afternoon. These are the successors of the current value for money, Redmi Note 4, and they are setting up the game with a Full Display (18:9) and a new dual-camera setup. After the launch of the iPhone X, the unmistakable vertical dual-camera bump is making its way to more Android phones and from the recent leaks, it appears that the Redmi Note 5 Pro will follow this same design.
Looking for a Redmi Note 4 successor? This could be it. After it was speculated that Xiaomi might drop its Redmi “Note” moniker, it appears that the Redmi Note 5 device could be announced tomorrow on Valentine’s Day. The big reveal is happening in India and it has been a year since the current Redmi Note 4 for international markets was launched.
The Mi MIX 2 is an interesting flagship from Xiaomi as it comes with a “bezel-less” display and a nice ceramic back. If you prefer something more exclusive with better specs, Xiaomi Malaysia has just announced the arrival of its Mi MIX 2 Special Edition. Not only it has more RAM and double the storage, the Special Edition comes in white.
