U Mobile has just unveiled its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus plans. Just like the existing iPhone bundles, the telco will offer these latest iPhones with a postpaid and prepaid plan, and as expected, you can apply for MicroCredit with Flexi Instalments. U Mobile also has a trade-in offer to buy the new iPhones, offering rebates as much as RM1,900 for your old smartphone.
Telekom Malaysia has something to say about smartphones, but is not saying much about it. The telco posted a cryptic Tweet saying that “The smartphone unlike any other needs a broadband unlike any other. Everything changes a day earlier.” The fact that the date listed is a day before the iPhone 6S launches in Malaysia could be a clue.
Microsoft’s Surface tablets have been quite a success, so it’s not all that surprising to see other manufacturers take inspiration from them. Enter the HP Spectre x2, a Windows tablet with a striking resemblance to the Surface. That is, until you look at the rather sleek-looking kickstand.
We’ve seen quite a lot of reports about Apple using two different manufacturers for the A9 chipset in its new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, (from Samsung and from TSMC) but do they really make a difference? According to several users, the processor offered by TSMC runs cooler and offers a better battery life, but of course, Apple denies it.
SwiftKey is one of the most popular third-party keyboard that is available on Android and iOS, and it looks like the company has got an even more interesting product up its sleeves. SwiftKey just announced a new keyboard, the “world’s first smartphone keyboard software that uses networks to predict and correct your typing”.
UPDATE 2: The official Apple Online Store prices are up, though in a hidden link. More below.
UPDATE: Maxis has announced its pre-order prices, and the RRP as quoted by the telco is cheaper than Digi’s. More below.
They are finally here. This time around, Malaysians did not have to wait too long for the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus to reach our shores. With all four major telcos’ pre-order campaigns going live, it is also time to answer the most important question: how much are the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus in Malaysia?
