Xiaomi will be having a global smartphone launch in Spain next week and they will reveal not one but two new Android One powered smartphones. It’s almost a year since the bang for buck Mi A1 was announced and now it’s the right time for Xiaomi to release a new contender for 2018.
If you’re in the market for budget smartphones, Xiaomi has just released two new affordable options that are priced from RM349. The Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A which were announced last month are finally coming to Malaysia and you can get it starting next week.
The Black Shark is Xiaomi’s ultimate gaming smartphone. It features a top of the line Snapdragon 845 processor and a rugged looking exterior that comes with a glowing logo at the back. If you’ve been eyeing this gaming device, you can get it now from as low as RM1,899 in Malaysia.
In just eight years, Xiaomi has built quite the empire for themselves with an extensive collection of smart home devices, smartphones and even lifestyle products. Today, they’re taking another step towards the future as the company just announced that they’ve been successfully listed on the main board of the The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited.
To celebrate this occasion, the company announced a whole bunch of discounts and promotions for some of their most popular products.
Smartphone screens are getting bigger each day thanks to thinning bezels. If you need a smartphone that offers a large screen experience and a battery that can last beyond a day, the Xiaomi Mi Max series is an affordable tablet alternative that you could keep in your pocket at a squeeze. Now the Chinese smartphone maker is working on a new one and it will be their biggest one yet.
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.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX was one of the first modern smartphones to push the boundaries of a bezel-less display. The screen stretches all the way to the top edges of the device, however, there’s a thick bottom chin which houses the front camera.
When Xiaomi introduced the Mi MIX 2 and MIX 2S, it felt like Xiaomi is turning their “concept” smartphone into a conventional device. The bezels got thicker and they still retain the bottom chin. Next to the new vivo NEX and OPPO Find X, the Mi MIX doesn’t feel that special anymore but that is all about to change with the new one. A couple of photos that alleged to be the Mi MIX 3 have surfaced online and from the looks of it, Xiaomi might have just made the perfect “Full Screen” smartphone.
Xiaomi’s Android TV-powered Mi Box has finally received its Android Oreo update. Apart from having the latest Android TV interface, it also gets better voice search with Google Assistant.
While Huawei and honor have been flooding the market with its Kirin 659 powered smartphones, it appears that the best response from Xiaomi is to fill the market with even more mid-range devices with the same Snapdragon 625 processor.
