Today I stumbled on a fairly shocking video that was uploaded by news portal Malaysiakini, but it wasn’t shocking in the scandalous kind of way, which I guess could make it even more shocking. It was a video of Transport Minister Anthony Loke turning down a smartphone gift from an event organiser because he can’t accept gifts worth over RM500.
Well, if RM500 is the ceiling, we’ve got a few ideas of smartphones that event organisers can use as gifts for future events with invited ministers.
The current Redmi 5 series is barely 7 months old and Xiaomi has just announced the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A smartphones. These are entry-level devices that are priced under RM500 (799CNY) and both of them offer a taller 18:9 “Full View” display in a more compact package.
