Rumour has it that Meizu‘s new MX5 smartphone is going to have a 41 megapixel camera.
Granted the claim does sound pretty over the top but similar stunts have been pulled by Nokia before; if you remember the Nokia 808 Pureview and the Lumia 1020.
Similar to the Meizu MX4, the phone is expected to be using a MediaTek processor though we don’t yet know which one, but given that the Meizu MX4 featured a octa-core MT6596, it’s also possible that it could have something similarly powerful under the hood. MediaTek released a newer chip, the MT6795 late last year and it would make sense for Meizu to put this in their new smartphone as it’s a 64-bit octa-core as well as has PowerVR G6200 graphics clocking at 700MHz under the hood.
The Meizu MX5 also looks like it will have a 5.5-inch screen in “2K resolution” as well as rumours pointing towards 4GB of RAM on top of the crazy camera.
Time will tell if the rumours are true or whether or not Meizu has some interesting new tricks up it’s sleeves.
According to the benchmark, the SM-T815 which is likely the LTE model, is to have a 9.6-inch screen with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels and an aspect ratio of 4:3.
Are you a student in need of a word processor and all the useful features that come with Microsoft Office? Microsoft has a surprise in store for students worldwide. They promised free Office 365 subscriptions to US students in 2013 but have extended that offer to students globally as long as they’re in a country that’s been listed as eligible for the offer.
The list of eligible countries can be viewed here, and Malaysia is one of them. Schools will have to buy subscriptions for staff and faculty but once they have, students and teachers alike can self-install for no charge by using a school-issued email address at the Office in education site. After signing up they’ll get access to the gamut of Office applications and will be able to install them up to five computers and five smartphones or tablets. The account will also come with Office Online and 1TB of OneDrive storage, which is icing on the cake.
But we do see a caveat here; your school will probably have to have already purchased a Office 365 subscription beforehand for this to work, as well as have a school-issued email address available as well; which is not something all local schools are likely to possess.
In a posting that was quickly pulled from Sony’s official Xperia Lounge application, it looks like the Japanese brand has confirmed that it will be releasing the Xperia Z4 Tablet very soon.
Samsung has been dropping a lot of teasers and hints about its upcoming flagship smartphone in what looks like the year’s biggest hype war as Mobile World Congress draws nearer. Now they’ve dropped a hint that the Galaxy S6 will have a larger display, according to latest update to the Norway site’s ongoing teaser page which will be highlighting one rumour a day till we hit Samsung’s Unpacked event.
More after the break.
A new Pebble smart watch will be announced very soon as their countdown clock has less than 12 hours remaining. With a little bit of tinkering, someone has found an image of the new watch which now has been replaced with something else.
From the looks of it, the new Pebble is wider and has more rounded outlook compared to its current squarish design. Retained are the 3 buttons on the right and a single back button on the left side. The new Pebble is said to feature a colour e-paper display which is hinted subtly with a yellow screen.
Unlike other new smart watches, the new Pebble is still sticking to its basic roots with an e-paper display that’s now upgraded with colour. To support its new software platform, it will be getting a hardware upgrade which is said to be a Cortex M4 processor and it comes with a 6-axis gyroscope. In terms of battery life, Pebble is expected to delivery the same if not better 7 days of battery life on a single charge.
All shall be revealed tonight at 11PM (Malaysian time) on getpebble.com. We can’t be sure but Pebble might start selling its new watch tonight itself.

Yesterday, a couple of alleged leaked images of the HTC One M9 had surfaced, revealing very little change on its overall design. The same design had appeared in an earlier leak, which more or less confirms the existence of the device. Could it be just another decoy to keep things under wraps until the big day? Maybe.
It was speculated that HTC will be designing its next flagship differently, with a centre positioned front facing camera and a new speaker grill design which is similar to its recently announced Desire EYE. Even serial leakster @evleaks had tweeted a series of HTC One images with the purported new design that’s different.
Based on these new inputs, Phone Designer had reconstructed a HTC One M9 render to give everyone a better visual of what to expect. We must say, the render looks pretty impressive and it does look like a progression over the current HTC One M8.
Qualcomm has just unveiled their latest batch of chipsets, the Snapdragon 415, 425, 618, and 620, about time too considering that they’re getting serious competition from the likes of MediaTek and even Samsung’s own Exynos chipset.
There has been a stronger need for Qualcomm to step up their game, especially in the entry-mid range segment where low cost high performance is vital.
Samsung’s second gen Galaxy Tab S tablet is currently in the works, with the tablet to steal the crown of the thinnest by being even thinner than the Dell Venue 8 7000 who had previously stolen Apple’s iPad Air 2 ‘s throne. Measuring in at 5.4mm thin, it’s a whole lot skinnier than the iPad Air 2’s 6.1mm and the Venue 8 7000’s 6.0mm.
HTC will be announcing its latest One M9 flagship in Barcelona next Sunday and there’s a possibility that more than one device will be announced. HTC USA has tweeted a couple of teasers indicating something huge is coming very soon.
We don’t expect anything huge from its One M9 as it is likely to retain its more compact 5″ dimensions like the current One M8. However there’s a possibility that HTC might do an Apple style iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus announcement, with 2 distinctive sizes.
