Asus Malaysia is launching the ROG Phone in Malaysia very soon. To secure your unit with official local warranty early, retailer DirectD is now accepting pre-orders for the gaming device which will come in either 128GB or 512GB of storage.
If you’re looking for a new Android tablet from Samsung, their latest Galaxy Tab A for 2018 is now available in Malaysia. This is their “affordable” multimedia tablet that’s designed for the family.
There’s no denying that Xiaomi’s Mi 8 is a killer proposition. It features awesome high-end specs, great build, improved features and — best of all — a tantalising price point. But, there is also no denying that the handset bears a striking resemblance to the iPhone X.
So, what if you’re someone who wants a Mi 8 that looks a little more special? Well, that’s where the Mi 8 Explorer Edition comes in, with all its transparent glory. The only problem is, this phone hasn’t officially left China so it’s really, really hard to get a hold of.
Thankfully, the folks over at DirectD have actually imported this phone and early this week they let us take a quick look at it.

If you’re looking for a different iPhone X-inspired Android smartphone, the Lenovo Z5 is now available in Malaysia via grey importer DirectD. The hardware looks similar to the mid-range ASUS ZenFone 5 and it even comes with a “Twilight” colour option.
UPDATE: Mi A2 is officially priced from RM999. It will be available in Malaysia from 3 August 2018.
The global launch of Xiaomi’s brand new Mi A2 smartphone was just a couple of days ago, but according to a local grey importer, the device will be available in Malaysia in the next few days. And they’re not talking about an import set.
If you’re looking for a different kind of flagship, HTC’s latest U12+ is now on sale in Malaysia. This is their latest quad-camera smartphone that comes with a large display that has no notch. It’s also the highest rated dual-camera smartphone on DxOMark Mobile with a score of 103.
Apart from the ASUS ROG phone, Nubia also has its own gaming smartphone that features RGB lighting at the back. This is the Red Magic and it’s now on sale in Malaysia.
Looking for a cheaper OPPO F7? OPPO Malaysia has just released its budget variant that’s called the OPPO F7 Youth. Unlike most “Lite” models, the F7 Youth version retains a lot of hardware from its bigger F7 where it matters the most.
There are plenty of flagship smartphones to choose from and for those who want to stand out, the LG G7 ThinQ is an interesting option. The only problem is that it’s as elusive as a unicorn in Malaysia.
For the past couple of years, LG Mobile doesn’t seem to be interested in selling their smartphones in our competitive market. The last “official” set they introduced here was the LG V30+ and it arrived about 7 months late.
If you’re still interested in the G7 ThinQ, retailer DirectD is now offering import sets with stocks now available.
The OnePlus 6 has finally landed in Malaysia and you can buy this flagship smartphone starting today. These are official units that are distributed by Mi Han Sdn Bhd, the new sole distributor for OnePlus devices in Malaysia.
