If you’re looking for an affordable Android One smartphone, the Mi A1 is now going for less than RM700. This is offered in conjunction with Lazada’s 6th Birthday Festival sale which starts today.
UPDATE: ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1 is now official. Expected to arrive in Malaysia in mid-May 2018.
ASUS will be unveiling the ZenFone Max Pro M1 which appears to be the successor to its current ZenFone Max Plus M1. It gets a larger 6” display in an 18:9 aspect ratio and it packs pretty decent hardware that could challenge Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5.
If you don’t like ASUS ZenFone for its UI and “bloatware”, you might just change your mind with this upcoming mid-range smartphone.
If you were thinking of picking up a Nokia 7 Plus today, you would be disappointed. The latest Nokia smartphone was supposed to go on sale in Malaysia today but it will be available for purchase by the end of next week.
When I think of smartphones that really caught my eye last year, the first phone that comes to mind isn’t any big flagship, despite the fact that it was the year of juggernauts like the Samsung Galaxy Note8 and iPhone X. No, because I wouldn’t buy those phones, they’re just too expensive for someone with my bank account balance.
The phone that really interested me was the Xiaomi Mi A1. Xiaomi’s legendary value-for-money hardware coupled with the slick experience of stock Android? Sign me up.
After the first one launched, I think there was only one thing on everyone’s mind: Will there be a sequel? Well, as it turns out, there very well might be a Mi A2 and this is what it could look like.
Lazada Malaysia is having a flash sale for the Xiaomi Mi A1. Instead of paying RM999, the Mi A1 can be yours for less than RM800 but it’s only available for the next couple of hours.
HMD Global will be announcing a couple of Nokia smartphones just before Samsung’s Unpacked event. With less than two weeks to go, serial leakster @evleaks has revealed two new Nokia models and one of it appears to be their first Android One smartphone with dual-cameras.
With Android One, Google is trying to deliver the best stock Android experience at various price points. Now it looks like Google could be introducing a phone that promises the best YouTube experience in the palm of your hands.
Who would have thought, among all the brand new Android smartphones that have been revealed recently, the one to garner probably the most hype is a cheap little mid-range entry from Xiaomi. It’s called the Mi A1 and there are a lot of reasons why this phone is THE phone for Android purists to look out for.
It represents a relaunch of the Android One program and it means putting clean, buttery stock Android — designed to run on crap hardware — in phones that don’t suck at prices people like you and I can actually afford.
It’s exciting but with phones at this price point, it’s all about that RRP so it’s natural that the one question on everyone’s mind is: How much? Well, while the Malaysian launch is literally just around the corner, it appears Lazada has jumped the gun a little and revealed the official pricing for this handset.
Looking for an affordable smartphone with stock Android experience? The Mi A1 is probably the best all rounder as it packs great specs and it comes with a dual-camera system. It was launched in India last week for 14,999INR (about RM985) and it’s coming very soon to Malaysia.
