The Mlais M7 is the latest smartphone released by the Chinese smartphone maker that comes with an impressive design and features. It is available for $189, and Mlais is doing its best to globally market the M7 -- as well as the M52 Red Note and M4 Note -- through Facebook.

Now, the Chinese company has started a new promotional campaign for the Mlais M7. Starting Monday, the manufacturer began offering special discount codes to potential customers. A post published on its official Facebook page claims that in order to get the discount code, customers must send a private message to Mlais.
