Purported Honor 7 leaked with fingerprint scanner

Posted:  April 17, 2015   By:    1 comment   


Right after unveiling its new P8 flagship, word has it that Huawei is working on a new successor for its Honor line up. The current Honor 6 is one of our favourite smart phones priced below RM1,000. Now it appears that its new Honor 7 sequel could be announced very soon.

From a couple of purported leaked shots, the new Honor flagships appears to have gone upmarket with a full unibody metal design. Also seen from the picture above is a fingerprint scanner mounted at the back. This looks quite similar with its current Ascend Mate 7 phablet that features a one touch fingerprint scanner. Also visible is a dual-tone LED flash, which should provide more natural looking photos when flash is used.

OnePlus to introduce 2 new phones, target 5 million units for 2015

Posted:  April 16, 2015   By:    No comments   


After finally rolling out Cyanogen OS 12 and Oxygen for the OnePlus One, the Chinese brand is looking to expand their company even further as it plans to boosts output.

They have plans to increase their staff to 1,500 employees this year and the successor to the OnePlus One, which is likely to be called the OnePlus Two, is estimated to be available by the third quarter of this year with better hardware than it’s predecessor. OnePlus sold over a million smartphones last year and they’re ambitiously planning to ship out between three to five million units this year, especially with the new model on the way.

No details yet on the new phone but we expect they will become available as we approach Q3. In the mean time, if you want to snag the OnePlus One locally, you can pick one up from Maxis.
