OPPO’s upcoming selfie-expert device, the OPPO F5 is definitely coming to Malaysia. The folks at OPPO has finally revealed its launch date which is happening in two weeks from now.
HTC will be introducing a new large screen smartphone very soon. After Samsung, LG and Huawei had launched their tall and skinny 18:9 display smartphones, HTC will be releasing a “FullView’ smartphone of their own that is expected to be called the HTC U11 Plus.
The OPPO R11 might take a while before it hits Malaysia. Coming up next is the OPPO F5, its new selfie-centric smartphone that features a near-bezel-less display. OPPO Malaysia has just released a teaser that it’s coming very soon to our shores.
This year’s flagships are mostly focused on delivering the largest screen without increasing the size of the phone. Instead of having a wider device, the new screens are taller with a typical 18:9 display aspect ratio as a result of a thinner forehead and chin design.
The Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note8 are Samsung’s first attempt at an all-screen phone with its Infinity Display. Now it appears that they are bringing this big screen experience onto their next mid-range smartphones that are due in early 2018.
Following the launch of the nova 2i, Huawei’s youthful sub-brand, honor, has revealed its own FullView display smartphone with the honor 7X. Similar to the nova 2i, it has a 5.93″ FullHD+ display that pushes 2160×1080 pixels resolution in a wide 18:9 display aspect ratio. This gives it almost 6″ of screen in a 5.5″ smartphone body.
Last month, we saw three new sub-RM1,500 smartphones hitting Malaysia with a “Full View” 18:9 display. Not wanting to be left behind, OPPO will be releasing their own version with its OPPO F5. Ahead of its official announcement, we now get a clear look of their new “Selfie Expert” smartphone via a promotional video in the Philippines.
The LG G6 will feature a massive 5.7″ Quad HD display on a smaller footprint. The South Korean smartphone maker is calling it a FullVision display as it occupies almost the entire front of the phone. This is made possible with an unconventional 18:9 display aspect ratio which pushes 2,880×1,440 pixels resolution.
Having additional pixels on the screen would be wasteful if existing apps can’t take full advantage of it. To address that, LG is introducing a new UX 6.0 interface which has been teased ahead of its big reveal.
