They call us the Selfie Generation and I’d love to say no, but everywhere I look, all I see are people taking selfies. So I guess it’s not that surprising that smartphone manufacturers these days are doing everything they can to capitalise on this psychological need that has ingrained itself into this generation’s mind.
OK, maybe psychological need was a little melodramatic, but the fact remains that companies like vivo are launching way more selfie-centric devices than probably anyone saw coming…and people are buying them by the bucketload. In any case, if you’ve ever been someone who wants to get their hands on one of vivo’s ‘Perfect Selfie’ V5s and V5 Plus handsets, this may be the best way to do so.
Xiaomi is back at it again and this time the company has revealed a pair of affordable Redmi Note devices which will likely serve as a primer for their upcoming Redmi Note 5 devices. These new phones are called the Redmi Note 5A and Redmi Note 5A Prime, and prices start at just under RM450.
Just days before Samsung announces the Galaxy Note8, Huawei has just released its first teaser video for its upcoming Mate 10. The video emphasises Huawei’s continued partnership with Leica and they will definitely featurer two cameras instead of one.
Google has finally revealed the official name for its upcoming Android in conjunction with the solar eclipse in the United States. Almost 4 years ago, Google had partnered with a well-known chocolate brand, KitKat, for Android 4.4. Now they are doing something similar by announcing Oreo as the latest sweet treat for Android 8.0.
Nubia pulled an interesting rabbit out of their hat when the company announced their brand new flagship smartphone, the Nubia Z17. It had all the juicy specs plus a few cool tricks up its sleeve which made it rather exciting when the company said it would land in Malaysia this month.
Well, that day hasn’t come yet but the ZTE sub brand is bringing in another interesting new device. It’s called the Z17 mini and if you’ve read the headline, you know it packs quite a punch.
Following the release of Huawei’s selfie centric Nova 2 series, they are about to introduce a newer model to step up its photography game. If having a 20MP front camera isn’t enough, here comes a more inciting model.
The launch of (probably) the most anticipated Android smartphone yet is just around the corner. Samsung’s Galaxy Note8 has a lot riding on its shoulders after the disaster that was its predecessor, and from the looks of things, is poised to deliver a truly stunning flagship smartphone experience.
However, all that high-end technowizardry will obviously come with a price and if this latest leak is to be believed, that price tag will be pretty high. Read the rest of this entry »
If you’re on a tight budget, Xiaomi has heaps of entry-level phones but almost all of them feature a modest 5.0″ HD 720p display. Want something bigger? There’s the Redmi Note 4 that offers a 5.5″ full HD screen with price starting from RM799.
For those looking for a 5.5″ smartphone at a lower price, Xiaomi is about to introduce its new Redmi Note 5A. According to rumours, this could be priced at 999 CNY which is about RM642.
The Mi MIX is an impressive device. It was one of the first smartphones to push for a bezel-less design with an impressive 91.3% screen to body ratio.
During its announcement late last year, Xiaomi called the Mi MIX their concept smartphone but surprisingly, it is a product that you can actually buy. Now it appears that a new one is on its way, as designer Philippe Starck had shared an interesting clip of its next successor.
The latest flavour of Android will be revealed next week. To make it extra special, Google is timing its touchdown with the upcoming solar eclipse that’s sweeping through the United States.
