Digi recently gave their Quarterly Network Update presentation on their upcoming plans in the future. One of the key points they pointed out was an improved expansion of their 4G LTE network coverage, as it has increased to 60% of the population coverage. This is the result of their engineers, busy expanding Digi's 4G LTE network for the past few months in 80 major cities and towns (key market centres 95% population coverage). They have also switched its 4G LTE-Advanced (4G LTE-A) network nationwide with a 22% coverage footprint (50% population coverage in key market centres).

While it hasn't been officially announced yet, OPPO Malaysia could be bringing the OPPO Neo 5 smartphone into Malaysia soon. The device has appeared at the OPPO Mobile Malaysia site and while the tech specs are more or less the same as the previous OPPO Neo smartphone, the new OPPO Neo 5 will offer 4G LTE. What is even more interesting is that the OPPO Neo 5 is set to be one of the most affordable 4G LTE smartphones in Malaysia, especially as it will be priced at RM598. While you can check our earlier review of the OPPO Neo, the tech specs for the OPPO Neo 5 are decidedly entry-level to midrange with a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB storage, 4.5-inch display with 854 x 480 pixel resolution, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera and 1900 mAh battery. It will come with Android 4.3 and OPPO's gesture based ColorOS. While there are still no specific Malaysia release dates, we expect the OPPO Neo 5 to come as soon as next week.
