Neffos believes that having a recognizable figure associated with the brand will give the X Series more depth as consumers can relate with the innovation personally with a familiar face they love. Which is exactly why Neffos and Fazura are working closely together to propel the X series forward.

"We wanted someone who can truly capture the essence of Neffos, and elevate the brand to be among the serious contenders in Malaysia. Fazura was our first choice as she possesses all the criteria that we were looking for, so it came as no surprise to appoint her as the ambassador. Everyone knows that Fazura lives a fast paced life, so having a quality device that is accurate and precise of up to 0.2 seconds as well as being reliable is very crucial. The Neffos X Series smartphone does just that, providing Fazura with the perfect combination of speed and style," said Kevin Lim, Senior Marketing Manager, TP-Link Distribution Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.

Neffos' X Series definitely seems well positioned to compete against other brands with their super-fast Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) and also fingerprint unlocking system that boasts a quick 0.2 second unlock everytime! Even Fazura is amazed by just how quick the phone can snap pictures perfectly and consistently.


"I'm proud to be able to represent one of the most ambitious, innovative and fastest growing brands in the country, With my role as the Neffos ambassador, I'm looking forward to introducing more exciting and inspiring innovations from the brand to Malaysians. The Neffos X Series smartphone definitely fits my everyday needs. It has a superb camera quality with PDAF function which I adore, not forgetting the super fast fingerprint unlocking system - both capable of responding perfectly in just 0.2 seconds; combined with a stylish metallic design that is fashionable," said Fazura, newly appointed Neffos X Series Brand Ambassador.


The Neffos X series comes in two versions the X1 and the X1 Max, with the X1 Max having a bigger battery (3000mAh compared to the 2250mAh of the X1) and a slightly bigger screen size of 5.5 inches. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, with it's super-thin bezels that are up to 2.75mm and dual-curved back design that tapers towards the sides to allow a more ergonomic fit. It also packs quite some performance under the hood with the Octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 chipset with up to 4GB RAM. Additionally, boasting to be a phone that can keep up with a hectic lifestyle such as Fazura's, it also supports fast charging with 50% charge in just 30 minutes! These features paired up with the PDAF feature of its camera and the agile fingerprint unlocking system suddenly makes this phone a very attractive option for anyone looking for a new daily driver.
