FreeYond’s expansion to Southeast Asia came after it received an angel round investment of nearly CNY 100 million (RM64,624,380) back in January this year from a Malaysian consortium led by Datuk Eddie Chai, a well-known Malasian investor. The company intends to leverage Datuk Eddie’s influence to expand its business in Southeast Asia including Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Singapore.

In less than a year since its inception, FreeYond has launched two smartphone products and one TWS headset.
