As we approach the end of 2021, here are some fun facts of what Malaysians looked up for in Google Search. Since we are a tech news portal website (again, we are not a shop lol), we will take a good look at the top trending searches in gadgets and devices this year.
In 2021, the realme 8 Pro took the top spot as the most searched gadget. The phone was released back at the end of April at the price of RM1299, featuring a 108MP quad rear camera, 50W SuperDart Charge and other specs. As a mid-range tier phone using a Snapdragon 720G chipset, its overall specs aren't so bad which could be why many Malaysians punched in "realme 8 Pro Malaysia".
Apart from that, Apple dominated the chart with three iPhones searches this year. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max got the second and fourth placing respectively. Interestingly, Malaysians were also searching for the iPhone 12 Pro Max which is still a powerful flagship. The OnePlus 9 is also another flagship that Malaysians looked up with "OnePlus 9 Malaysia Review".
As for the rest of the entries, budget-friendly phones are still one of the favourites for Malaysians. The OPPO A54, Redmi Note 10, Redmi Note 10 Pro and vivo Y20 appeared quite frequently in Google Search, alongside the realme Watch 2 as the only wearable accessory and non-smartphone device at number 8.
Google Malaysia also sent us other noteworthy top trending searches over the past year. If you're interested in that, you may head over to our news post right over here to check them out. Stay tuned for more trending tech news at TechNave.com.
