“We’ve always wanted to help showcase Malaysia’s natural beauty to the world and so we want to thank Tourism Malaysia for giving us the opportunity to play our part in the VM2020 campaign. Not just tourists, but Malaysians themselves often overlook the country’s hidden gems. With the 108mp camera on the Mi Note 10, Malaysians are able to capture the unique beauty of this country into the innermost detail, bringing to life what was previously unseen.
