Looking for the latest and greatest smartphones? You’ve come to the right place.
With so many phone releases lately, it can be hard to keep up with the latest models. To save you time and most importantly, money, we’ve compiled a list of top flagship Android smartphones for you to consider.
Read on for the top 5 must-have smartphones in the Malaysian market.
If there’s one thing people like more than getting new smartphones/gadgets/toys, it’s finding out that their smartphone/gadget/toy is better than everyone else’s. It’s human nature, or maybe just our egos, but the desire to turn everything into a stick measuring contest has been in our blood for generations.
Well, if one of the sticks you want to measure is your flagship smartphone’s camera performance, this article is for you. You seemed to love our last camera comparison, so we’re doing it again, only this time there’s a twist.
OK, Xiaomi‘s Mi MIX 2 stole the show yesterday. In an event that’s usually all about the Mi Note series, Xiaomi has a new champion in their high-end flagship phablet category. But, the new Mi Note 3 does share at least one common thing with the Mi MIX 2: It also has a change in mantra.
When it was launched in Malaysia, it was the most expensive Xiaomi device yet at RM2,499. Although it had great specs with a generous 128GB of storage, not many are willing to fork out that much money on a Xiaomi phablet.
For its successor, Xiaomi is making the Mi Note 3 a “Plus” alternative to the current Mi 6 while maintaining the same price tag. On top of that, they have also added something extra to pit it against the selfie kings like OPPO and vivo.
After revealing their Mi A1 smartphone earlier this week, Xiaomi will be announcing not one but two new models tomorrow at Beijing. The main highlight is the successor of its radically designed Mi Mix as shown above. It is probably the first flagship phone in recent times that started the whole all-screen bezel-less obsession.
Xiaomi’s Co-Founder and President, Lin Bin, had also recently revealed that a bigger Mi 6 will be making its debut at their upcoming event.
It’s no secret that I wasn’t a big fan of last year’s Xiaomi Mi 5. I didn’t like how it performed, I didn’t like its camera and for the most part, I was quite annoyed that we got what felt like scraps instead of the proper flagship we hyped it up to be.
This year, as Malaysia finally gets its turn at the Xiaomi flagship Mi 6, it’s time to find out if they’ve learned their lessons.
Xiaomi is doing what they do best yet again and has launched a brand new mid-range smartphone, called the Mi 5X, that’s honing in on two big features — its camera and the desire to be trendy. Well, that and a killer price tag.
If you’ve been eyeing for an affordable compact flagship smartphone, the wait could be finally over. Xiaomi has just teased a new product launch in Malaysia and it appears to be a dual-camera smartphone. This is likely to be their Xiaomi Mi 6 that was introduced in China 3 months ago.
UPDATE: The new device is a special edition of the Mi Note 2.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 packs a lot of hardware in a smaller 5.15″ form factor. It has everything you would expect from a flagship like a Snapdragon 835 processor along with 6GB of RAM as standard across all models.
For those who want something bigger, Xiaomi appears to be releasing an upsized model tomorrow which could be called the Mi 6 Plus.
