The Xiaomi Mi 8 is the most affordable Snapdragon 845 powered flagship smartphone that you can buy in Malaysia. It’s available now on the official Mi Store on both Lazada and Shopee. If you’re looking for a better deal, you might want to get the Mi 8 via physical stores this coming Saturday, 18 August 2018.
After introducing their latest Mi Pad 4, Xiaomi has just added a larger full-sized tablet into its lineup. The 10.1″ tablet is called the Mi Pad 4 Plus and apart from the size, it also comes with a bigger battery plus larger storage options.
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.
Xiaomi Malaysia just announced that their latest Mi 8 flagship smartphone will officially go on sale in Malaysia next week. However, its most fascinating feature is the device’s price tag, as this full-on flagship smartphone can be yours for below RM1,600.
If you’ve ever looked at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, which is the best smartphone in its class and one of the best bang-for-buck handsets you could buy, and thought “Hey, it’s still not quite worth the money”, there’s good news. Xiaomi Malaysia just dropped the price of their jewel of a budget handset, bringing the entire range below the RM900 mark.
IDC has just released its global smartphone shipment numbers for Q2 2018 and there’s a major shakeup in the top 3. While Samsung still dominates the #1 spot with a shipment of 71.5 million units, Huawei has overtaken Apple for the second spot and they command a market share of 15.85%.
UPDATE: Mi A2 is now on sale at the official Mi Store on Lazada and Shopee.
