The Shopee 8.8 Sale is happening in two days; to online shoppers, this is that one day of the month where they can enjoy discounts and vouchers on a wide range of products.
So if you’re part of the online shopping community and are hunting for great deals, we’ve got your back. Here are 8 tech products you won’t want to miss out on!
Paperang P1 Mini Portable Printer
The Paperang P1 is one of the most popular mini printers on Shopee, sporting a 5.0 rating with over 1,100 sales. It’s originally priced at RM259, but you can get it for RM101 during the 8.8 Sale — that’s a 61% discount!
Unlike polaroid cameras, the Paperang P1 can print using various types of thermal papers – each offers different quality and function. Printing is also convenient; Paperang has its own app which is available on App Store and Play Store.
The Paperang P1 is also light and compact, measuring at 83mm x 83mm x 45mm. It comes with a 1,000mAh battery that charges via a microUSB cable.
Best of all, you can use this mini printer to print photos, labels and notes. It’s a versatile device that can be used to keep your life at home slightly less dull.
Plus, you can go out once MCO is over, snap lots of photos with your friends and family, and print them all out using this printer.
iPhone 12 mini
iPhones are almost never on sale and when they are, the discounts are usually unimpressive. Well, the upcoming 8.8 Sale offers the latest iPhone 12 mini at a discounted price starting from RM2,888. That saves you RM511 if you were to purchase the lowest storage variant.
The iPhone 12 is Apple’s mini flagship that caught the attention of those who like to use their phones single-handedly. Despite its smaller form factor, it still has the same Super Retina XDR Display as the iPhone 12 and shares the same A14 Bionic chip as seen in the Pro models.
This deal is offered by IT World, an Apple authorised reseller, meaning you can trust the authenticity of the product. IT World will even give you a one-year extended warranty worth RM186, plus you can pay for the phone via instalment plans.
Here’s another Apple product that discounted slightly more than usual — the AirPods Pro. Usually priced at RM1,099, IT World is offering it at RM848 during the 8.8 sale. That’s a little over 20% discount, but like we’ve mentioned, Apple products rarely get discounts like this.
The AirPods Pro have been known as one of the premium wireless earbuds with excellent Active Noise Cancellation. They’re sweat and water resistant, lightweight and fits snugly in your ears (but that’s subjective, of course). One of their newer features include spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, so you’ll get a more realistic audio experience when using them to watch movies.
Apart from offering good call and audio quality, these earbuds also come with a wireless charging case. On a single charge, the AirPods Pro can last up to 5 hours; but with the charging case, you’ll get more than 24 hours of playback.
realme Watch S
Blood oxygen monitor is now a sought-after feature in smartwatches, especially thanks to the increase in COVID cases in Malaysia. The realme Watch S is one of the affordable options that can track your SpO2 level, and if you’ve set your eyes on it, you should get it during the sale as it’ll cost RM120 less.
The realme Watch S has a 1.3-inch display that supports both touch gesture and physical buttons. It can monitor your heart rate 24/7, your SpO2 level, your sleep data and offer several fitness modes. With an IP68 rating, the watch is waterproof and has up to 1.5m water resistance. That being said, it is not advised to wear this watch for swimming and to shower.
You can also control your smartphone’s camera using the watch, control music playback and follow meditation guides. The realme Watch S offers a 15-day battery, so you won’t have to worry about charging it often.
OPPO Enco Buds
The Enco Buds offer 24 hours of battery life and have an IP54 rating. They can last up to six hours on a single charge, and you can enjoy an additional hour of playback with just 15 minutes of charge.
These earbuds may not come with premium features, but OPPO still included intelligent call noise reduction to minimise external noise during calls. OPPO also promises low latency when you turn on the Game Mode, so you won’t miss out on crucial moments due to audio delays.
At 4g per earbuds, the Enco Buds will not weigh down your ears and can be worn for long hours. If you’re just looking for a pair of affordable earbuds that lasts long, the Enco Buds will be good enough.
realme Smart Cam 360º
Whether we’re working outside or from home, it’s always better to protect our homes. One way to do that is to make sure there’s at least one surveillance camera to monitor your home when you’re not around, or sleeping at night. There will be a 50% discount on the realme Smart Cam on August 8, so it’s the best time to get yourself a CCTV if you want one.
This security camera supports 1080p recording and offers 360º panoramic vision. It also has infrared night vision, full colour despite low light conditions, AI motion detection and edge distortion correction. All these features shares a similar goal — better visuals for easier detection of intruders.
Those who are often away from home will also appreciate the 14-days continuous recording feature. However, you’ll need a memory card to store these footages — the camera is compatible with up to 128GB memory card.
PS5 DualSense Wireless Controller
We all know the PlayStation 5 only comes with one controller when you purchase them, but there are many of us who like to enjoy gaming on the console with our friends. This is the chance to get the DualSense wireless controller for less than its original price.
During the sale, you can get the controller for only RM254, saving you almost RM100. The reviews left on the product page also convinced us that it’s an original product that functions well — there was only one 3-star rating and no 2-star and 1-star ratings.
At the time of writing, the DualSense controller is available in all three colours — White, Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. However, the warranty comes from the supplier and not Sony Malaysia.
Xiaomi 40-inch Mi TV
We saved the largest (but not priciest!) product for the last — the Xiaomi 40-inch Mi Smart TV. Since most of you are stuck at home during MCO, a good TV will prove useful to keep you entertained daily.
The Mi TV has a 40-inch FHD+ display that supports HDR 10; it comes with stereo speakers that support DTS audio and built-in apps like Netflix, YouTube, Disney+ Hotstar, Amazon Prime Video and more.
Port-wise, the TV has two HDMI ports, an Ethernet port and a USB port. It comes with 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage, and only supports 2.4GHz WiFi networks.
The Mi TV will be RM400 cheaper than usual on August 8 at RM899, and you can purchase via instalment too.
There are many more tech products to look out for during the Shopee 8.8 Sale…
But these are our top options considering their prices and values. Apart from the Enco Buds, the rest of the products can only be purchased during the 2-hour sale from 12am to 2am on August 8, so you’ll have to sacrifice some of your sleeping time and have quick hands in case these stocks are limited and others get to them before you do.
Well, may the odds be ever in your favour.
