Hitting the tech scene during MWC 2015 back in March, it’s taken awhile for the Huawei Watch to finally arrive on our shores. As they often say, better late than never. This late arrival isn’t unprecedented since the same smartwatch had issues launching in China but that was mainly due to Android Wear compatibility and Google services restrictions in the country.
Not too long ago we spotted ZTE’s Nubia Z9 leaked in the promotional photoshoot image above.
We didn’t get to see it at MWC 2015 as originally predicted, but now we have some specs of the upcoming Nubia flagship smartphone from an AnTuTu benchmark pass of a device codenamed NX510J that’s believed to be the Nubia Z9.
According to the specifications listed; the Z9 will have a 5.2-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution with a pixel density of 424 ppi, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor mated to 3GB RAM. It will also have a 16 megapixel rear camera as well as an 8 megapixel front selfie snapper while running on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
Of course the outlines specs could very well be the Nubia N9 mini or Z9 Max, if ZTE is continuing with their current strategy in releasing three flagship devices per cycle.
Announced earlier this month at MWC 2015, the HTC One M9 was launched with an already large 32GB of internal memory, but according to HTC ROM developer @LlabTooFeR, the smartphone will also have a 64 GB variant that cold be launched ‘later this year’ in some markets.
Both predecessors of the One M9, the One M8 and One M7 did in fact come in two storage capacities, so it’s not entirely out there that the One M9 would come in a similar flavour. Of course the 64GB version, if it really is true, will certainly be a bit more expensive than the regular 32GB model.

These images are basically a comparison between the metal frames of the Z3 and the Z4 which shows that they both have the same Sony Omnibalance design though he Z4 is said to be 1 mm thinner.
More images after the break.
The HTC One M9 isn’t a huge upgrade over the previous One M8, but that could be intentional in preparation of its next model. The rumoured HTC One M9 Plus has appeared again and this time in live pics.
The upcomig model is seen with a similar brushed metal finish but the camera module appears to be larger with a more traditional round shape. Over at the sides, it has a similar 3 button layout for volume control and power/wake button. So far there’s no view from the front but we reckon HTC would be using the same design as the current One M8/M9. It may be possible that HTC could fit a fingerprint scanner at the front that works with a single touch.
The ASUS Transformer series have come a long way. From a convergence Android tablet with an accompanying keyboard, the latest Transformer Book Chi aims to replace both your laptop and your tablet. Announced during CES 2015, the Transformer Book Chi series offers a Windows 8.1 experience while giving a flexibility of having an interchangeable notebook or tablet mode.
The smallest of the lot is the ASUS Transformer Book T90 Chi with an 8.9″ display and a compact keyboard that lacks a touchpad. This reminds us of the compact Sony VAIO P-series but ASUS lets you detach the screen fully for a tablet mode. The screen pushes a 1280×800 resolution on its 8.9″ IPS screen and it runs on an Intel Atom 1.46GHz Quad-Core Z3775 BayTrail-T processor that’s mated to 2GB of RAM. This is obviously better than the EeeBook X205 which lacks a touch screen display.
You get an option of 32GB or 64GB of on-board storage which can be expanded with microSD. On the tablet itself, it gets a 2MP camera in front and a main 5MP auto focus shooter at the rear. Overall it is 7.9mm thick and weighs 0.75kg inclusive of the keyboard dock. In the hands, it feels pretty solid with a nice matte finish and diamond cut finishing around the edges.

The Wexler Ultima 7 Twist+ is a 7″ Android tablet while the Ultima 8 Twist is a larger version with an 8″ display. Both pushes a 1280×800 HD resolution, using an IPS panel and underneath, it runs on a Quad-Core processor with 1GB RAM and has 16GB of on-board storage. The front looks plasticky, the back has a metal plate. Out of the box, they are still running on Android 4.4 KitKat. In terms of connectivity, it only supports 3G.
For the 7 Twist+, it gets a rotating 13MP camera that’s assisted with flash, and it looks similar to the OPPO N1’s camera design. Surprisingly the bigger 8 Twist gets a lower resolution 8MP shooter instead. Another obvious difference is the 7 Twist+ has the dedicated Android capacitive keys while the 8 Twist uses on-screen buttons. We are not sure if OPPO would be as furious with Wexler like it did with Polaroid, but at least the body design is different.

Your fingerprint is probably one of the best way of securing your device, offering better than average protection that can be unlocked with a single touch. However such feature is only limited to high-end flagship devices that normally cost more than RM2,000.
If you want to add fingerprint security to your existing entry to mid-range device, here’s an interesting solution that was spotted at MWC 2015. It is a fingerprint scanning module that you can attach to your smart phone’s camera lens.
