Motorola is holding a big event this 28th July where there will launch their latest offering at 3 locations - London, Sao Paulo and New York. After the recent leaks and rumours, the Moto G is finally going to be revealed and it looks like it will be joined by a couple of other devices. A new surprise is the Moto X 2015, which is their top end offering and it is expected to run on a Snapdragon 810 processor. Apart from the usual suspects, there will be a couple of new "Droids" which will be exclusive to US's Verizon network.
Samsung will be releasing two new flagship device very soon - the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+. Word has it that both of these models will be launched earlier than usual, where the Note series is often launched during IFA in early September every year. To get an early start in sales and to avoid clashing with the upcoming iPhone 6S announcement, the new Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ is said to be launch on 12 August and it could go on sale before the end of August.
If that's not convincing enough, both models have just passed certification in Singapore's IDA database with the Galaxy...
If you're looking for a flagship phablet from Xiaomi, the Mi Note could be heading to Malaysia very soon. Xiaomi has sent out invites for a local launch event that's happening next week on 22nd July. The Mi Note which was launched in China earlier this year had passed its SIRIM certification several months ago but it remained exclusive for the Chinese market until now. Just recently, Mi Hong Kong has announced that it will commence Mi Note sales starting next Tuesday and it looks like the 5.7" phablet is rolling out to more international markets in the coming weeks.
When the Galaxy S6 was announced, it whooped other devices on Antutu benchmarks by a huge margin. With half of 2015 gone and there are newer flagships sporting Qualcomm's top of the line Snapdragon 810 processor, the Galaxy S6 continues to reign supreme thanks to its 64-bit 14nm Exynos 7420 processor, 3GB of LP-DDR4 RAM and a faster Universal Flash Storage.
The OPPO R7 Plus is the Chinese brand's latest offering in the Malaysian market with its pre-orders now open. For those who prefer to feel the device in their own hands, OPPO Malaysia will be displaying the R7 Plus at selected 11 outlets nationwide.
The OPPO R7 Plus was launched recently with the price tag of RM1,998 and it comes only in gold colour. If you want to experience the product, you can check out the list of participating outlets right after the break.
After tons of leaks, the Galaxy A8 is now official with a thickness of just 5.9mm. While it won't break any new world records, the Galaxy A8 is the thinnest smart phone that Samsung has ever produced, beating its previous 6.3mm record on the Galaxy A7.
From the exterior design, it still maintains the same unibody approach like the rest of its Galaxy A series but the A8 inherits some design cues from their current flagship. For starters, the metal frame has some chiseled design and the front looks like a larger Galaxy S6. Even the home button has a fingerprint scanner which unlocks at a single...
If you love taking selfies, the Sony Xperia C4 Dual is now officially available in Malaysia with the retail price tag of RM1,299. It was launched locally last month alongside the Xperia M4 Aqua and its new flagship Xperia Z4 Tablet. This is the successor of the Xperia C3 and the new model offers better specs all round.
U Mobile might be the underdog among the big 4 telcos in Malaysia but they been quite a disruptor with its value for money proposition. After revamping its postpaid offering with heaps of data, U Mobile is set to announce a new product that's said to be a game changer for its segment.
We think this could be a new prepaid product and it is likely to offer free unlimited basic internet similar to #Hotlink, #MagicSIM and the new Digi Smart Prepaid. Effectively this could put an end to pay per use charges for internet which U Mobile currently charges RM0.20/MB.
Without giving specific details,...
Ever since TM had launched its Unifi High Speed Broadband service 5 years ago, nothing much has changed when it comes to their Home broadband plans. Just recently we had a glimpse of its faster 30Mbps and 50Mbps options but they are limited to selected test areas within the Klang Valley. You could get 50Mbps for only RM263.94/month (inclusive of GST) which is the same price as their current VIP 20 plan with 20Mbps connectivity.
The folks at Lowyat had just confirmed that the new plans are now officially available in all Unifi service areas. So now you can enjoy 30Mbps speeds at RM210.94...
For the ultimate luxury, the Vertu brand comes to mind with its exotic materials and craftsmanship. In the past, Vertu smart phones offer premium build but the internals are quite a let down in comparison. Realising that specs are equally as important as the outside, the fine smart phone maker has stepped up its game with better spec-ed smart phones like the Vertu Aster and Vertu for Bentley. Obviously everyone would demand top notch internals especially if you're forking more than RM20,000 for a phone.
For its newer model, it looks like Vertu is stepping up its game and it can finally...
