One of the year’s best mobile innovations has got to be Oppo’s VOOC charger. Capable of charging the Find 7‘s 3000mAh battery from 0 to 75% in just 30 minutes, the VOOC charger fixes one of the modern smartphone’s major annoyances. But given that the charger is more than two times larger and heavier than a standard microUSB charger, some may prefer a more portable option – such as an in-car charger, which Oppo has just teased via its Twitter page.
Remember the refreshed HTC J Butterfly, announced three weeks ago exclusively for KDDI in Japan? Well, turns out that just like the previous J Butterfly, this one’s fluttering out to international markets, too. HTC has just announced the international availability of the new J Butterfly, which will be known as the HTC Butterfly 2 in the international markets.
[Update] 24 hours later, all but one of the deals have been either pulled or removed. More below.
It is fair to say that the Xiaomi Mi 4 and the OnePlus One are two of the most sought-after Android smartphones right now. Offering premium specs at mid-range prices, these smartphones are exceptionally good purchases…if you can get one, that is. However, with Groupon Malaysia’s latest deals, you can grab both devices NOW.
But…something doesn’t look quite right in both deals.
Xiaomi has officially unveiled the latest iteration of its highly successful Android ROM, MIUI 6. While there’s been huge celebrations in the form of a one-day sale offering huge discounts in China and its other international markets, the main focus today is with the revamp of one of the most-used ROMs in the market. MIUI 6 is, in Xioami’s words, “visually stunning, stunningly simple”.
After revealing that Xiaomi’s MIUI software discreetly uploads user data without informing its users, software security firm F-Secure has now confirmed that the latest MIUI update has fixed the issue.
As most of you will know, Xiaomi is holding a huge sale to celebrate MIUI’s fourth anniversary, offering discounts of various products and even offering a chance to win a brand new Mi 4 smartphone. But it appears that the company is ready to surprise its Mi Fans with the availability of a new product tomorrow: the Mi In-Ear Piston Earphones.
Machines, an authorised reseller for Apple products in Malaysia, will be holding a warehouse sale starting from tomorrow until the weekend. Offering some pretty good deals for a variety of Apple products including current-gen devices like the iPhone 5s and the iPad Air, this is one stop you should make if you’re looking for a good deal for Apple products.
In conjunction with the 4th anniversary of the MIUI ROM, Xiaomi is holding a huge sale across all of its markets. In Xiaomi’s home market in China, it is going to be a huge bash, with plenty of items on discount. Xiaomi will also be taking the opportunity to announce the sales of three of its latest products.
