So...it's August already! But things have been a bit quiet. I mean, there are some news here and there, the Vivo S1 got officially launch in public yesterday at the Vivo SuperDay Roadshow Event, then Xiaomi Malaysia also got to show its new pure stock Android Mi A3 smartphone (which nobody really seems to care for some reason), same goes to the Black Shark 2 Pro that was revealed in China (which unfortunately still loses the favour against the ROG Phone 2, according to our fans). Besides the phone news, we got a Malaysian Pokemon fan making his own Pokemon game mod based on Malaysia so that's cool.
Yeah so there's nothing much but just a heads up, here's what you can expect in this coming few weeks - many news about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series which will take place in New York and many, many Merdeka promo sales to come. Anyway, let's get started shall we?

Can you believe that it's already July? We are now entering the second half of 2019 and...there isn't a lot going on except for many 7.7 sales, especially on Shopee's platform. Aside from that, another worthy sale promotion that's going on is Huawei's Online IT Fair which is offering a 2-year warranty and up to RM400 discount on its mobile phones now, Samsung is also teaming up with MBO offering Malaysians a Buy 1 Free 1 promo for movie fans, and the Galaxy Note 10 will officially be UNPACKED on 7 August 2019.
So....yeah I think I'm talking here. Told you there isn't much going on haha. Anyway, the most exciting part is probably looking out for sales on Shopee's 7.7 Orange Madness campaign so do standby if you're planning to buy anything. Anyway, onto this week's NewsBytes.
