Need an upgrade or something to tide by until your next re-contract? Lacking in accessories for your handset? You've come to the right place.

 

Huawei P40 Pro+

Huawei's 5G-capable flagship smartphone from the earlier half of 2020 comes with its first-ever penta-rear-camera configuration. It covered a wide range of shooting scenarios, took great photos, and was outfitted with all the little features that make it worth its flagship name. While the Huawei Mate 40 series contains a more advanced chipset, the lack of a Pro+ variant in Singapore makes the older P40 Pro+ a viable high-end alternative with excessive camera features.

Originally debuting at S$1,898 (512GB storage, 8GB RAM), Huawei is offering the P40 Pro+ at S$1,698 until the end of the month. On top of the S$200 savings are two free gifts: a PU casing for the device and 27W wireless charger worth a total of S$126 (while stocks last). This deal is available on both official Lazada and Shopee platforms.

OnePlus 8 Pro (12GB RAM + 256GB storage)

True to OnePlus's belief in putting out phones with real flagship specs at lower prices, the 5G-ready OnePlus 8 Pro has a 6.78-inch AMOLED display at an eye-melting 3,168 x 1,440 pixels resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. Inside is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset with 4,510mAh battery. On the rear, a quad-rear camera configuration led by a 48MP main camera.

The original retail price of the 256GB version of OnePlus 8 Pro typically goes at S$1,398. It's now going at S$1,089 (22% off) via this third-party retailer on Shopee. Pretty good discount, all around, and you can always head to the official OnePlus Shopee storefront instead.

Phone cover (unofficial) for Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2

Are you broke after blowing S$2,888 for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2? Don't worry; we got you. Here's a S$5.99 (originally S$9.99) plastic phone case for the foldable handset. We didn't just pick this senselessly. It has no noticeable markings or logos, making this phone casing an ideal choice if you value a clean appearance. Three colourways are available - black, translucent, and clear. It's so affordable you could probably use this deal to round off purchases for your shopping cart to qualify for other discounts, or even grab extra pieces as spares.

Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G

Samsung's latest stylus-based flagship device packs upgrades to the S Pen experience, with a decreased S Pen latency of up to 80%. The 5G-ready Galaxy Note20 Ultra packs 4,500mAh, uses its proprietary Exynos 990 processor, and has a host of other typical flagship-tier specs like Fast Wireless Charging and a 6.9-inch Quad HD+ (3,088 x 1,440 pixels resolution) Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity-O display with 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate.

Typically at S$1,898, the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra now goes at S$1,598 (15% off) at its official Lazada storefront. We believe the price will be adjusted further on 12.12 itself, so keep your eyes peeled. Yes, there are free gifts like its official phone sanitiser and more, but they are only available while stocks last.

SanDisk Extreme microSD card (A2 application speed)

There's plenty to talk about when it comes to microSD cards.

It also has V30 write speed, which is suitable for recording 4K footage directly to the card.

Typically at S$85 for 256GB, it's now at S$60 (about 29% off). The higher storage variants (400GB and 512GB) are also available at a discount.

Vivo V19

Vivo V19 packs plenty of cameras in the device, with a dual-front configuration and an AI quad-rear camera setup. Both ends offer selfie video stabilisation and several special modes (including one for night selfies). The smartphone itself has a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ display (2,400 x 1,080 pixels resolution) called the Ultra O Screen. It supports 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, which is a real treat if colour accuracy on your display is important to you.

The RRP of the Vivo V19 was S$599 at launch. Now, you can get it at S$499 (17% off) at Vivo's official Lazada storefront.

Xiaomi POCO X3 - NFC

Xiaomi's sub-brand, Poco, said that the X3 model offers only on what phone users generally need, without going overboard or under-delivering on the crucial bits of what makes a daily-driver phone. For example, the choice of NFC on an entry-level to mid-range price point is a rare find, but the Poco X3 carries it away because of how important digital payments can be these days. The display is a 6.67-inch Full HD+ (2,400 x 1,080 pixels resolution) LCF DotDisplay with 240Hz touch sampling rate and 120Hz refresh rate, and it's powered by a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G chipset.

Typically at S$399 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage version, the device will go on sale at 12.12, down to an undisclosed amount at its official Lazada storefront. Keep your eyes on the prize!

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro (6GB RAM + 64GB storage)

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro smartphone from Xiaomi gives excellent value for money. It packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor, has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD card slot, and supports 30W fast-charging support for its 5,020mAh battery. On top of all these, Xiaomi still managed to put a 6.67-inch Full HD display and quad-camera setup on the rear, starting with a 64MP primary shooter.

Typically, the 64GB variant retails at S$349, but 12.12 will have a flash sale on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro at Shopee. So check in then for discounts and other promotions going on at the website.
