Celebrating the Merdeka spirit, trailblazing Malaysian fintech company, Meen Tech Network Sdn Bhd (Meen Tech), has marked its official entry into the smartphone market with the introduction of its flagship smartphone series — the Meen M60.
Rooted in decades of experience in mobile phone assembly, Meen Tech is now taking the next step in its evolution – taking centre stage as an innovator and creator of Malaysia’s latest and very own smartphone series. Smartphones developed by Malaysians for Malaysia with high-quality specifications and technology complemented with novel innovations and supplementary services designed to create a new and holistic experience for users.
“For decades we toiled in the background of the smartphone industry – honing our skills and capabilities. Now as the Merdeka month rolls in we are immensely proud to step up and showcase our abilities, as a Malaysian-born and bred company”, shared Yuen Mun Kwun, Chief Executive Officer of Meen Tech.
“Our celebration today and the introduction of the Meen M60 marks the start of a new chapter in Malaysia’s role within the mobile tech development industry, and a step towards technological sovereignty for us as a country. This is more than the launch of a product — it is a showcase of how far we as a country have come in terms of technological prowess, a symbol of innovation that echoes the spirit of Merdeka”, he continued.
Proudly designed in Malaysia, the Meen M60 is a flagship smartphone featuring top-of-the-line specifications – designed to be the stylish showcase of Meen Tech’s potential within the smartphone industry.
Its dual-camera photography capabilities redefine picture-taking with a 16-megapixel front camera, seamlessly integrating front-blurring capabilities and cutting-edge AI algorithms for stunning selfies, while a 64-megapixel high-definition main camera on the rear captures every detail with precision.
The dual-sim device measures 163mm in height, 76mm in width and 9mm in depth coming in at a compact 215g in weight. Display-wise it features a 6.53 inches AMOLED 120Hz screen with beautifully rounded corners, delivering an overall resolution of 1440x 2560 pixels.
Under the hood, this smartphone offers premium performance, powered by the Snapdragon 888 processor. Paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage space with support for an additional 256GB of external memory, it effortlessly handles multitasking and offers substantive storage, ensuring a seamless user experience.
Additionally, the rapid-charge high-capacity battery, coupled with the Type-C fast charging system, ensures that even the busiest Malaysians can stay connected on the go, making this smartphone an essential companion for the fast-paced lifestyle of today.
Presented in three elegant colour options — Deep Sea Blue, Ceramic Black, and Ruixue Crystal — the phone showcases a sleek and slim design that marries form with function. The curved screen layout enhances visual appeal, while the monochromatic design exudes sophistication, making it a stylish accessory for any occasion.
“For our flagship device, we wanted to put our best foot forward. Something that caters to every modern requirement at a competitive price point and all packaged in an elegant design. We believe with the Meen M60 we have achieved this and are eagerly anticipating the market’s reception to our device,” Yuen elaborated.
The brand introduction and Meen M60 unveiling took place at The Great Room of W Hotel Kuala Lumpur and was officiated by Meen Tech brand ambassador, Tan Boon Heong, former World No. 1 in badminton men’s doubles, and pride of the country.
Also taking place during the event was the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Koperasi Pasaraya Malaysia Berhad (Kopasar). The collaboration establishes a collaborative partnership between both parties for the marketing, sales, and distribution of further Meen Tech products by Kopasar, both locally and internationally.
