UPDATE: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be officially available on 7th November.

Out of the blue, DiGi gotten the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus ball rolling by initiating its registration of interest. Both devices would be available in 3 colours – Gold, Silver and Space Grey with a choice of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities.

With this sudden development, is Apple releasing it soon in Malaysia? After all, both iPhones have already passed the necessary SIRIM certification for quite some time now. Earlier on, Maxis has ignited anticipation with its #NextBigThing teaser but it cooled off when Apple announces its next wave of iPhone countries without any mention of Malaysia.

To register your interest, head over to DiGi’s iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus ROI page.

UPDATE: DiGi starts registration of interest for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in Malaysia. Available 7th November.

After all that #NextBigThing teaser by Maxis, it is now DiGi’s turn to arouse curiousity of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. To make it less obvious, they have used 2 pineapples with different sizes and a caption #BigorBigger.

As far as we know, the new iPhones won’t be launched in here this month as Apple has bypassed Malaysia for October behind 68 countries. Perhaps we are getting it in November maybe? What do you guys think?

141021-ios-8.1-available-download

About a month after Apple rolled out its latest iOS 8, here comes the updated iOS 8.1 which is now available to download.

Like any updates, iOS 8 brings several bug fixes, continuity with Macs and also the return of the Camera Roll album for Photos. It also introduces Apple Pay but that’s limited only to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users in the US.

For those who are already on iOS 8, updating the device is quite a breeze by heading to Settings> General > Software Update. If you’re upgrading from iOS 7 and having insufficient storage issues, the alternate way is to update via iTunes. Be sure to perform a full backup before updating.

The iOS 8.1 update is available for iPhone 4S and above, iPod Touch (5th Gen) and iPad 2 and above.

Check out the full change log of iOS 8.1 after the break.

OPPO N3’s 16MP camera can be rotated electronically

Posted:  October 20, 2014   By:    No comments   

141020-oppo-n3-electronic-rotating-camera

The OPPO N3 will be launched next week and it will feature a rotating camera that uses a 16MP 1/2.3″ sensor.

While the original OPPO N1 swivels around at 206 degrees by hand, the new N3 would be electronically controlled using Planetary Transmission. You can think of it as tiny gears working together to rotate the camera module smoothly.

This is probably the first time a smart phone is ever fitted with such feature and we wonder what sort of advantages does it offer other than the usual hand twist action. Probably the camera might move automatically during a selfie, making sure your face stays within the frame.

The OPPO N3 launch is happening next Wednesday, 29th October in Singapore and we will be there to cover the event live.

Xiaomi’s entry-level Redmi 1S will be discontinued in Malaysia and tomorrow (21st October) marks its final sale. There will be 5,000 units available for tomorrow at RM419.

The Redmi Note 4G is a single SIM device that’s powered by a Quad-Core 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 processor with 2GB of RAM, instead of an Octa-Core 1.7GHz MediaTek MTK 6592 processor on the current Dual-SIM 3G version. You can compare the specs of the Redmi 1S versus its current line up over here.

For those who still prefer to grab the smaller 4.7″ Redmi 1S, your last chance is to buy it from the Mi Online store at 12PM tomorrow.
