UPDATE: OnePlus 6 with official Malaysian warranty is also available for pre-order.
The OnePlus 6 was announced last week and it’s now a grown-up flagship that comes with a premium build. If this is the smartphone you’ve been waiting for, you may soon be able to buy one in Malaysia in the next couple of days.
It’s finally time for HTC to flex their muscles. After the excellent HTC U11 and U11+, what more does HTC have in store for with the latest HTC U12+ smartphone? Well, apparently they’re removing all their physical buttons and adding two cameras. Also, despite the “+” moniker, there’s only one smartphone.
It’s easy to get caught up in the amazing new features modern-day flagship smartphones have to offer. Triple cameras, the latest processors, gorgeous displays and crazy-looking designs are all easy things to drool over, so I don’t blame you. I do that sometimes too.
Personally, I’ve grown far more interested in the mid-range segment of the market than I have with the RM3,000+ handsets that grab all the headlines. Although I do love myself a good flagship, it’s always a delight to find phones that can give you a very similar day-to-day experience for a fraction of the price.
And 2018 looks like the year for the affordable mid-range.
We’re all for cryptic teasers. Teasers that don’t reveal too much but are enticing enough that you wouldn’t want to miss it when everything’s revealed. And if we’re talking about cryptic teasers, TM‘s latest teaser has to be the most cryptic one I’ve seen yet.
All we have to work with from the telecommunications giant is….an onion?
