Xiaomi is making its fifth birthday celebrations its grandest one yet, and just like in 2014 it is making this a global celebration. For the Malaysian market, there are plenty of device offers and games, but consumers can also look forward to six new products coming to Malaysia which will be available from 8 April.
Earlier, we reported that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will retail for RM2,599 and RM3,099 respectively. One question that was not revealed, however, was whether this prices are inclusive of the upcoming Goods and Services Tax (GST). Those of you hoping for the best are in for a pleasant surprise, as it appears that the two prices will be inclusive of GST.
Now that Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge has officially been announced, the countdown officially begins as to when these two smartphones will make their way here in Malaysia. While twenty unnamed countries will be getting the first wave of the devices’ availability on April 10, what about Malaysia?

Just moments ago, it seems like two of the biggest social sites in the world, Facebook and Instagram are not accessible. We thought it was our connection but it turns out that this is a global occurrence.
We have yet to hear from Facebook (who also owned Instagram, by the way) about this surprise downtime, so keep calm and stay tuned. At least, WhatsApp (which also owned by Facebook) is still functioning normally.
UPDATE @ 11:25am, 23 January: As reader Boon Jia Jie points out, the minimum purchase for free shipping has also increased. More on that below.

Samsung’s Malaysian launch of the new Galaxy A5 and A3 series was filled with surprises. Unlike the series’ launch in India – where the company announced a whole new Galaxy E series – the Malaysian launch had the first sighting of the Galaxy A7, which is not yet announced globally just yet.
And, lying on a random table at the launch event is what you see above: the Galaxy Note Edge. According to our sources, this unique device will be coming to Malaysia as early as next month.
