The GoPro Hero 9 Black has just been launched, along with a couple of significant upgrades over its predecessor: 5K video recording, a front-facing display, and a new HyperSmooth 3.0 stabilisation feature. And, as it turns out, we have some good news for our Malaysian readers.
The GoPro Hero 9 Black is now available in Malaysia! While the official GoPro site lists the new action camera as “out of stock”, we’ve spotted an event announcement on GoPro Malaysia’s Facebook page—with full pricing details, as well as a couple of freebies for early bird buyers.
As such, the GoPro Hero 9 Black is now available for purchase at selected authorised retailers throughout Malaysia. However, GoPro’s subscription-based discount is not available here. Full details are as follows:
GoPro Hero 9 Black – RM2,099
GoPro Max – RM2,310
GoPro Hero 8 Black – RM1,699
GoPro Hero 7 Black – RM1,199
Additionally, the first 400 customers will be able to redeem a Hero 9 Black rechargeable battery (supposedly improved by 30 percent) for free, or have a chance at weekly prizes worth up to RM1,000.
Full details are as follows:
- Purchase a GoPro Hero 9 Black from any of GoPro authorised dealers nationwide within 17th – 30th September 2020. Authorised retailers: https://funsportz.com.my/find-a-retailer/
