Samsung’s Android Wear Watch And Tizen Smartphone To Come This Year

by Lucas Lau · 47 mins ago · No Comments · 15 views

samsung-gear-2-5

In an interview with Reuters, Samsung’s Senior VP for Product Strategy, Han Kil Yoon has confirmed that they will be releasing an Android Wear smartwatch and “high-end” Tizen based Smartphone this year. This is almost eerily similar to last year when those plans did not come through due to “poor market conditions”. Samsung have said that they will be concentrating their efforts mainly in “a few countries they can do well in”.

If this is to be believed we will be getting a high end Tizen phone by the end of june and the Android Wear watch by the end of the year. I for one will be excited to see what the combination of Android Wear and perhaps a curved display will bring!

ASUS ZenFone 5 PixelMaster Camera

There are plenty of features that ASUS has equipped into its new ZenFone smartphone series despite being priced at under RM 1000.  One such feature that we have managed to check out ourselves during our brief time here at the ZenFone regional launch event in Jakarta is the PixelMaster Camera.

Even within the PixelMaster Camera itself, ASUS has included plenty of modes ranging from beautification to HDR to selfie helper that should be able to provide plenty of fun for users that love to snap photos. That being said, what have caught my attention the most is the camera’s Low Light Mode that is available only on ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 6 (sorry, ZenFone 4 future owners).

Seeing is believing, so read on to see more.

Hence, Microsoft recently came out with Office 365 Personal which caters such users and it is now available in Malaysia.
