After days of waiting, it turns out that the most awaited phone from Nokia isn’t a flagship device that we hoped for. Instead, HMD Global had announced two new smartphones in India, and they are global versions of their X series from China.
Today I stumbled on a fairly shocking video that was uploaded by news portal Malaysiakini, but it wasn’t shocking in the scandalous kind of way, which I guess could make it even more shocking. It was a video of Transport Minister Anthony Loke turning down a smartphone gift from an event organiser because he can’t accept gifts worth over RM500.
Well, if RM500 is the ceiling, we’ve got a few ideas of smartphones that event organisers can use as gifts for future events with invited ministers.
After launching a couple of budget smartphones, Nokia will be unveiling something new on Tuesday, 21 August 2018. According to Nokia, this is the most awaited smartphone yet and this could be their new Nokia 9 flagship smartphone which replaces the Nokia 8.
Are you looking for a budget phone with long battery life? The Nokia 2.1 could be the device you’re looking for. HMD Global, the company behind Nokia phones, has officially announced the availability of the Nokia 2.1 in Malaysia.
Early this month, HMD Global had introduced the new Nokia 8110 4G in Malaysia. This is a tribute to the iconic Matrix phone which is also known as the banana phone. The Finnish smartphone brand is aware that there are cheap knockoffs of the Nokia 8110 being sold online and they want consumers to be cautious when it comes to dubious offers.
After releasing the Nokia 6.1 in Malaysia last week, the Finnish brand has just introduced its Nokia 3.1 in our local market. This is Nokia’s most affordable 18:9 display smartphone and it claims to have 50% better performance than last year’s Nokia 3.
What a year it has been so far since the last time we published our best smartphones under RM1,200 (2018 edition). We changed governments in a historic election nobody saw coming, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is now zero-rated and, of course, a whole bunch of brand new affordable smartphones launched.
We thought about a simple update to our original guide, but because so much has changed, we figured it would be a disservice for you to just add the couple of new phones to the end of that one. Instead, we decided that it would be better if we gave the whole guide a proper face-lift, featuring the new updated GST-less budget smartphones, several brand new handsets and a revised Editor’s Choice section.
Here’s our ultimate budget smartphone guide Part 2.

Nokia’s new throwback device, the 8110 4G has finally arrived in Malaysia. Like the reborn Nokia 3310, it’s also a feature phone but this supports faster 4G. On top of that, you can even use it as a hotspot.
After introducing the Nokia 7 Plus in Malaysia, Nokia will be introducing another affordable mid-range smartphone for our local market. This is the Nokia 6 for 2018 which is also known as the Nokia 6.1. The device was first launched in China and it’s a significant step up from last year’s model.
