Today, HMD Global has officially unveiled 2 mid-range Nokia handsets to the Malaysian market. Both of these devices are part of the Android One program, so if you are a fan of stock Android, you should definitely check them out.
Nokia 6.1 Malaysia
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.
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.
