The SIRIM Database is often used like China's TENAA and also usually gives a clear indication that a device may be coming to Malaysia soon. The ASUS ZenPad 7.0 or Z370CG, ASUS ZenPad C 7.0 or Z170CG and LG G4. The ZenPad tablets will have tech specs that include the new 64-bit Intel Atom x3 processors, 1GB/2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage and 3G connectivity. Both will feature 7-inch displays but the higher-end Z370CG will offer 1280 x 800 pixel resolutions compared to the 1024 x 600 pixels on the Z170CG. The listing for the ZenPad tablets appears to be to all the usual local distributors, suggesting that we could see the ASUS ZenPad tablets sometime soon, with early estimates set at July 2015. The LG G4 on the other hand looks to be going to one of the major smartphone distributors in Malaysia, which suggests that it may be making an official comeback to Malaysia. The LG G4 is currently the leather-clad flagship smartphone from LG with a curved 5.5-inch 2K display covered by Gorilla Glass 4, 16MP rear camera with laser autofocus and OIS and much more. Neither ASUS nor LG Malaysia have made any comment or teaser on these new arrivals, but we expect both to arrive in Malaysia soon.
