Living Life in the Fastlane with Fazura and Neffos
Kuala Lumpur (5 February 2017) — Neffos is announcing the appointment of a very much-adored personality among Malaysians — Fazura, to represent the Neffos X Series and propel the smartphone brand forward. As the brand who champions bringing people and technology closer together, 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.
Nur Fazura Sharifuddin or more commonly known as Fazura is no stranger to the Malaysian audience. Having established herself as one the most well-known talents in the local entertainment scene, Fazura has transitioned herself into an all-round entertainer with acting, singing, modelling, and hosting in her repertoire.
With her hectic schedule and constantly being in front of a camera, the Neffos X Series provides Fazura with the convenience of never having to miss capturing her precious moments.

Surrounding herself with only the best products, the Neffos X1 is more than just a speedy companion, as the smartphone also matches up to Fazura’s stylish persona. With its meticulously crafted elegant appeal, the premium finish dual curved metallic back cover ensures Fazura will never look out of style, complimenting her at every turn.
“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.
