Xiaomi is set to kick off 2019 with a new device that features a 48MP camera. Xiaomi’s president, Lin Bin clued fans in on the existence of the device in a posting on Weibo while Xiaomi’s Global spokesperson and Director of Product Management, Donovan Sung, posted the same image on Twitter.
Xiaomi which started as an online-centric brand known for its crazy flash sales is aggressively expanding its presence offline. In India, Xiaomi had set a new Guinness World Record for the most stores launched simultaneously on 29 October 2018. They opened more than 500 Mi Stores across India at the same time.
Need a secondary SIM card for your Xiaomi smartphone but don’t want to fiddle around with physical cards and ejector tool? Xiaomi has just announced that you can enable e-SIM on their smartphones in Malaysia. This covers a variety of models including the Mi 8, POCOPHONE F1 and even the Redmi 4A.
Xiaomi is known for cheap and good gadgets, from smartphones to headphones, Xiaomi products are easy on the pocket. It’s no different with these wireless earphones from Xiaomi. Called AirDots, these AirPod-style wireless earbuds are on sale in China for under RM120. Apple, on the other hand, charge RM650 for a pair of AirPods.
I’m a total sucker for cool-looking smartphones — I can’t help it, I’m just naturally drawn to the device with the impractical motorised cameras, or the coolest new sliding mechanism. Or, in the case of the brand new Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro, the one with the most transparent back.
But the problem with a lot of these fancy smartphones is: There’s a high chance that you’re giving something crucial up just so you can own that cool new design or mechanism. And unfortunately for the Mi 8 Pro, it looks like you’re giving up something pretty significant — something I don’t think Xiaomi really needed to do with this line of smartphone.
As teased by Xiaomi earlier this week, the new Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Lite will be finally available in Malaysia starting tomorrow, 10 November 2018. The Mi 8 Pro is the global version of the radical looking Mi 8 Explorer Edition, while the Mi 8 Lite is their new mid-range contender that’s priced from under RM1,000.
The Mi MIX 3 is currently the best smartphone Xiaomi has ever made. The large display dominates the entire front and it no longer has a thick chin in the bottom like its previous MIX models. To solve the selfie camera conundrum, Xiaomi has gone with a manual slider mechanism which hides its dual-front camera setup.
The MIX 3 is currently officially on sale only in China. If you can’t wait to get your hands on the device, you can now buy imported units from Mobile2Go.
If the ROG Phone is too expensive for you, the Xiaomi Black Shark Helo might just be your cup of tea and it’s now on sale in Malaysia.
If you can’t wait for the launch of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 in Malaysia, the Chinese smartphone maker has another brand new flagship coming right at you. It’s called the Mi 8 Pro and if you’ve been keeping up with the news, you’ll know that it’s basically the Mi 8 Explorer Edition without the high price tag.
