Samsung is definitely moving its new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge flagships up a notch on the premium scale. Unfortunately that also means you would need to fork out more for their latest models which will be launched this week in Malaysia.
According to a source that tipped Lowyat.net, the Galaxy S6 will be priced at RM2,599 in Malaysia, while its double-curve display Galaxy S6 edge would carry an even higher price tag of RM3,099. This more or less matches its pricing in other parts of the world where the Galaxy S6 edge is priced higher than the already premium iPhone 6 Plus.

The Apple Watch will go on sale globally on 24th April. While it is available initially at selected countries such as China, Australia, US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and Hong Kong, we probably might not need to wait too long for it to arrive officially in Malaysia.
Before having a sumptuous meal, most people today would bless their food by snapping a picture. Sharing photos of food is great, but what if you taste them from your smart phone? Now Maxis claims to be able to finally merge gastronomy and technology with this nifty little accessory.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge boast improved cameras for both front and back. The current GALAXY Note 4 was proven to be a stellar performer with a 16MP main camera. Now on the latest flagship, it gets a similar main camera but Samsung has tweaked it further for better pictures at any time.
For those who love to take selfies, the front now gets a better 5MP camera that should capture more detail than the front 3.7MP unit on the GALAXY Note 4. So how does the Galaxy S6 compare against the GALAXY Note 4 and its former GALAXY S5 flagship? Read on to find out.
Once again, thanks to @Upleaks we have a brand new render of the alleged HTC One M9+ variant way ahead of the launch event in Beijing this coming April 8th which teased a new One M9 variant with an one M8-styled duo-camera.
In terms or design, it looks like a dead ringer of the regular HTC One M9 with a few tiny differences. It has a second, larger camera as well as a Samsung-style fingerprint scanner under the screen, as well as some rather interesting colour combos – gunmetal grey on the front and back with gold accents at the sides. The image does line up with the leaks surrounding the smartphone, especially with leakers pointing towards a tweak M9 design for China and parts of the EMEA (Europe, Middle-East and Africa) region.
The HTC One M9+ will have a 5.2 inch Quad HD display, high end octa-core MediaTek CPU with a heaping 3GB of RAM on top of the 20 megapixel camera and fingerprint scanner.
We don’t know yet if it will get a wide international release but we will be watching when April 8th rolls around.
Xiaomi has unveiled the third generation of it’s popular Piston in-ear headphones, featuring an updated design, build and sound signature.
After a bunch of rumours and leaks, China’s HTC arm finally lists HTC’s first ever Quad HD smartphone, the HTC One E9+ on their website, though they haven’t yet hinted on a release date or pricing.
Samsung’s phones tend to not be made of the toughest stuff, with the latest Samsung Galaxy S6 edge a cool albeit somewhat breakable looking design with a metal frame sandwiched by two pieces of Gorilla Glass 4.
However a low-res clip has surfaced on YouTube showing a woman repeatedly throwing a Galaxy S6 edge on the ground in full force and it came out unscathed. Despite the hard throws, a quick test afterwards shows it survived and while it’s a little difficult to tell from the video it seems to have come out completely unscathed.
As the actual launch gets closer we will likely see more elaborate drop tests and water tests to show it’s toughness, but the smartphone no longer has IP67 certification so it may not fare so well with water. Still, if you’re one who tends to have butterfingers with phones, you might want to check out the video after the jump.
The original HTC One M7 is two years old now but it is still getting a taste of Lollipop. Weighing 765MB in size, it is recommended to download this via fixed WiFi. The biggest change of course is having the latest Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with a refreshed Sense UI interface.
Earlier on, it was seen that this could be the very last update for One M7. Many users had complained that this would deprive them of the critical bug updates and fixes that would come with the updated Android 5.1 version. A HTC product VP has responded that most of the fixes have been addressed with the current Android 5.0 update but there’s a slight glimmer of hope that they could release Android 5.1 for the device.
Thanks H.Ones for the tip!
