The ASUS ROG Phone is the ultimate gaming smartphone that’s priced from RM3,499. If you prefer to get it on contract, Maxis is offering the ROG Phone from as low as RM111/month or RM2,259 on a normal contract.
UPDATE: The POCOPHONE F1 Armoured Edition is also available at the Mi Store in 1Utama.
If you’ve been waiting for the POCOPHONE F1 Armoured Edition, this special edition variant will go on sale in Malaysia next week. For those who didn’t know, POCOPHONE is Xiaomi’s latest sub-brand that focuses on delivering top spec flagship hardware at a much lower price point.
The POCOPHONE F1 is a great smartphone if you’re looking for top notch performance on a budget. When it went on sale on 30 August, it had sold out across multiple physical Mi Stores as well as their official online store on Lazada.
If you’ve been trying to get your hands on one, here are some good news. The POCOPHONE F1 is now restocked on Xiaomi’s online store on LazMall and they are now offering something extra for greater peace of mind.
It has come to a point where a flagship smartphone is never just a smartphone anymore. It’s your camera replacement, your home theater solution, your PC in a pocket and even your swim buddy. This desire to add more and more to a wafer thin handset has become a bit of a double edged sword. Yes, bold new ideas are a great way to push the industry forward, but many of them tend to become nothing more than a gimmick while also adding a significant price premium to your handset. That’s why it has become almost a norm for flagships to cost around RM4,000.
What happened to the good old flagship smartphone that’s only focused on giving you the best smartphone experience? Focused on giving you a smooth and snappy performance with a battery that can last? And most importantly, at a price that more people can afford.
Well, that’s where a brand like POCOPHONE comes in. This small, Xiaomi-backed team of individuals have set out — with laser focus — on doing one thing and one thing alone: To give people what they want. And their first product, the F1, is probably the most focused device I’ve seen launched in a while.
The POCOPHONE F1 officially goes on sale in Malaysia today at all authorised Mi Stores nationwide (and online at Lazada). However, while a lot are stoked that this device has finally launched in Malaysia, there’s still one question left unanswered: Will we be getting the POCOPHONE F1 Armoured Edition with its Kevlar back?
Well, we’ve actually got some info directly from Xiaomi Malaysia about this particular device.
Xiaomi has released a couple of flagship smartphones in 2018. There’s the updated Mi MIX 2S, followed by the Mi 8 which comes in 3 different variants. Now they are making top-notch smartphone performance more accessible to the masses with their new flagship killer, the POCOPHONE F1. This new sub-brand device under Xiaomi is hitting the shelves in Malaysia this Thursday, 30 August 2018, and here’s everything you need to know.
UPDATE: The POCOPHONE F1 goes on sale in Malaysia starting 30 August from under RM1,300.
Just a few days ago, Xiaomi had announced POCO, a new sub-brand that focuses on delivering high-spec smartphones at a significantly lower price point. If you thought the Xiaomi Mi 8 at RM1,599 was affordable, the POCO F1 is a Snapdragon 845 powered smartphone that’s priced from as low as 20,999INR, which is about RM1,233. Now it looks like the new flagship killer is arriving in Malaysia very soon and you can probably get it before the new SST kicks in.
As teased before, Xiaomi is introducing a new sub-brand, POCO, which will cause a stir in the flagship smartphone segment. It’s basically a OnePlus-like brand that focuses on offering blazing performance at a lower price point.
If you’re looking for a Snapdragon 845 powered smartphone for less than RM1,500, this device should be on your watchlist.
POCO is Xiaomi’s new smartphone sub-brand that aims to deliver fast flagship performance at a lower price point. The official launch event is taking place in India very soon but if you can’t wait, there’s already an unboxing video which gives us a clear look at the new “flagship killer.”
A few years ago, OnePlus used to be the “flagship killer” but now that title seems to go to Xiaomi for its super affordable flagship offering. The Mi MIX 2S that offers a “bezel-less” screen with a Snapdragon 845 processor is priced under RM2,000 and their latest Mi 8 is going for as low as RM1,599, which is insanely good value for money.
If the Mi 8 is still too expensive, Xiaomi has just introduced a new sub-brand and their new device could be the most affordable Snapdragon 845 smartphone ever.
