There’s still a lot of speculation of what HTC’s next flagship is going to look like, with discrepancies across the different leaks, but it looks like these videos are the real deal. For those hoping for a fresh new design might be disappointed as the One M9 shown matches the earlier leaked press images.
Here are three videos showcasing what we believe is the HTC One M9, showing off a two-toned metal chassis, some apps and custom widgets to name a few. Two of the videos focus on specific features of the phone, namely the camera and a theme-creator app, while the first one gives an overall take on the smartphone. The original leaker UpLeaks has since removed the original videos and deleted his account, so catch them while they’re still up.
Videos after the break.
AMD has revealed their new Carrizo range of processors that are heavily focused on extending the run time of performance-oriented laptops.
Efficiency is the main feature of the Carrizo chips, with the new core architecture named Excavator being 5 percent faster than it’s predecessor the Kaveri, but it purportedly takes 40% less juice at the same clock rate, with even the graphical core supposedly using 20 % less power.
The chip is also the first processor to meet the completed Heterogeneous System Architecture spec, which essentially lets the CPU and intergrated graphics share memory. This allows some tasks to finish faster than they normally would and is likely to give performance and battery life a much needed boost. The Carrizo chips will also feature dedicated H.265 video decoding which will aid in video streaming.
Overall the new processor looks quite promising, and Carrizo is expected to hit PCs by the second quarter of this year; close to Intel’s mid-year target for it’s quad-core Broadwell chips. If we’re lucky we’ll have both Intel and AMD chips hitting the market simultaneously.
The super sexy LG G Flex 2 will be made available in more countries with major carriers in the United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Germany and the U.K. will be among the first to offer the G Flex 2 while key markets in North and South America, Europe and Asia will announce the start of sales in the weeks following MWC.
However this announcement does’t confirm if the G Flex 2 will be available in Malaysia. And judging by the shaky position that LG Mobile is in in Malaysia, we’re not entirely sure if the device will be coming to Malaysia at all. So if you’re planning to get the LG G Flex 2, your best bet right now is to get it from Singapore or from local grey importers but get ready to pay a hefty premium if you’re going with grey importers.
The G Flex 2 features an unique 5.5-inch Full HD (1080×1920)flexible Plastic-OLED display that delivers a pixel density of 401 ppi. The display also offers enhanced durability thanks to its plastic construction and flexible properties. Under the hood, you get an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor clocked at 2.0GHz mated with 2GB of RAM. You get an option of 16GB or 32GB of on board storage and the microSC card slot support cards up to 2TB in size! If you’re wondering, the G Flex 2 runs Android Lollipop 5.0
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.
