As GST takes effect on 1st April, the Honor 4X will be available officially in Malaysia and its official price has been revealed at RM699. In terms of specs, we will be getting Huawei’s in-house developed 64-bit Octa-Core Kirin 620 processor that’s mated to 2GB of RAM.
While the RM699 Honor 4X price tag is higher than the Redmi Note 4G, VMall.my seems to have some extra surprises that will be revealed on 1st April. We can’t be sure but they might probably throw in couple of freebies for early bird buyers. If you want to be among the first to know, they have start a registration of interest exercise which you can register over here.
After seeing a couple of leaked photos, the purported specs have been revealed covering from its 5″ mini to its 5.5″ models.
Alleged new photos of the HTC One E9 have made the rounds online, this time showcasing the entirety of the smartphone after the initial round of leaks.
Like the HTC One E8, this could very well be the plastic backed alternative to the metal bodied One M9. Previously the smartphone was leaked in white and gold colours but this time it seems to be a rather dark shade and enveloped in a protective case. The rumoured specs of the smartphone include a MediaTEK MT6795 chipset, 5.5″ QHD display, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, with Sense-d Android Lollipop.

Micromax is India’s answer to Xiaomi, which is known more for the YU spinoff brand that runs on CyanogenMod.
They generally provide decent specced devices at low prices, and they want to differentiate itself from the rest of the pack by releasing a smartphone straight out of the box with the latest Lollipop built in. The previous YU Yureka is already a challenger to the Redmi Note as a 5.5″ Snapdragon 615 smartphone, and Project Caesar will be taking on the Redmi 2 with double the RAM and storage.
This isn’t the first time Micromax has made fun of Xiaomi, but the teaser image also reveals that their new device will come with a 64-bit chipset and 2GB RAM as well as 16GB storage.
Xiaomi does in fact have a higher specced version of the Redmi 2 but it’s not been released internationally as of yet. Rumours claim that Project Caesar will be launched sometime in April but that’s yet to be confirmed.
Qualcomm‘s pretty proud of it’s Quick Charging 2.0 tech, with the top tier smartphones using their chipset all packing the technology. To showcase it, they’ve taken the Motorola Nexus 6 and tested three of them with different chargers to show just how great it works; but OPPO isn’t impressed.

Xiaomi is on a roll and after 5 years in the business, they are looking for bigger growth in 2015. During its global supplier conference, its CEO Lei Jun has mentioned that Xiaomi is targeting to ship 80-100 million smart phones this year.
That’s quite a huge target which isn’t surprising considering it came up to be among the world’s Top 5 smart phone makers last year. It is reported that Xiaomi has sold over 65 million units in 2014 and most of it are from its affordable Redmi series. No doubt that gave mainstream players some serious beating in the affordable segment.
Just when you thought HTC is gonna settle for just One M9 as their flagship, the Taiwanese maker will be introducing One more. After several rumours and leaks, the anticipated HTC One M9 Plus is finally going to be launched on 8th April in Beijing. Likely to be announced officially as the HTC One M9+, the upcoming device has been rumoured to carry a larger display of at least 5.2″ and it pushes a higher Quad HD resolution of 2560×1440.
In terms of processor, the One M9+ could be released with two processor options – an Octa-Core Snapdragon 810 similar to its current One M9 or possibly a high-end 64-bit chip from MediaTek. Looking at the teaser, we can confirm that HTC would be bringing back its Duo Camera set up like the previous One M8. Build quality and design would be similar with its current One with a dual-tone unibody metal design as shown above.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will be launched in Malaysia on 2nd of April. If you’re planning to get one on contract, Digi wants you to know that they are offering it on their network. Similar to Maxis, we expect Digi to accept orders through their online store.
They have yet to reveal further details and we wonder if Digi would be having gold as shown above as their exclusive colour. The Green Emerald unit for the Galaxy S6 edge will be exclusive to Maxis and who knows Celcom might want the Blue Galaxy S6 for themselves. To get to know the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge better, do check out our first impressions from Samsung Unpacked 2015 during MWC 2015.

From what we can tell, the final version of the update won’t be too different in terms of features and improvements that the latest OS brings, inclusive of an updated UX with Material Design touches, lockscreen notifications and improved performance. Users in the US will be getting the update as a 930MB OTA package while other regions will have to wait for the OTA to show up, upgrade using Kies or download it and flash it manually.
We don’t know yet when we’ll be getting the update, but it shouldn’t be too long considering how fast Samsung is updating it’s device lineup.

Xiaomi will be having its 5th anniversary on 31st of March. In conjunction with its celebration, Xiaomi will be having a little surprise for its fans with a new product announcement in China.
While there’s no official teasers yet, it is speculated that Xiaomi could be releasing a new mid-range device that’s rumoured with the codename “Ferrari”. It was spotted in benchmarks for having a 4.9″ Full HD display and it runs on an Octa-Core Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB of RAM. Interestingly it is shown running on a newer Android 5.0.2. If this is real, this could be a more affordable alternative to the current Mi 4 and hopefully it does contain the necessary 4G LTE band to support international markets.
