Hot on the heels of Samsung, HTC Malaysia has also announced a new smartphone for the Malaysian market today. Good thing is, both smartphones launched today are technically not in the same target market. Say hello to the Butterfly 2, HTC’s other flagship smartphone with 13MP Duo Camera.
Downloaded and installed iOS 8 on your iPhone, iPad and/or iPod touch? Good, now that you’re done with the painful process of waiting for the download and waiting for the installation, it’s time to explore your brand new iOS that is touted as the biggest iOS release ever. Unlike the last major update when Apple gave its iOS a major design overhaul for iOS 7, the changes this time round, aren’t as apparent.
While the overall design may still look and feel the same, leaving you slightly confused after the whole installation process and ending up with practically the same thing except for a few additional default apps – Health, Tips and Podcasts, Apple has actually included quite a lot of new and improved things in iOS 8, so let’s take a look at some of the cool features.
Not too long after its global announcement, Samsung Malaysia has officially announced the arrival of the new Galaxy Alpha smartphone, the company’s first metal-framed Galaxy device. As part of the launch celebration, Samsung is even giving away a free Gear 2 smartwatch for lucky new owners of the Galaxy Alpha.
Oppo may have an event scheduled for next month, but the Oppo N3 isn’t the only thing the Chinese company has up its sleeves. Oppo Malaysia recently announced the arrival of the Oppo R1L smartphone in Malaysia for a retail price of RM1,198.

Microsoft Devices will be holding an event next week to preview new “imaging innovations and exciting offerings” from the company. For some reason it will be held in conjunction with Golden Screen Cinemas, who will apparently also be sharing something new. It is due to happen on the 25th of September, and we have at least some idea of what will be shown.
The new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will finally be available in stores tomorrow, but before you head on to places that sell the phone or before you decide to purchase one from someone else, there is one very important (and judging by their retail prices, somewhat life-changing) decision to make.
Which iPhone 6 should you pick?
Seems like OnePlus really can’t catch a break. The company has just announced that its interesting StyleSwap covers, which was a genuinely interesting concept of changing not just the colour of the back cover but also the texture, has been scrapped. This action was due to a combination of factors, including production yield issues as well as the OnePlus One smartphone’s design itself.
Google’s Android Silver programme was originally reported as an effort to bring the stock Android experience to high end smartphones. It was intended to be more inclusive of OEMs and allow the company to properly deliver what they think people should be getting out of the operating system. However, it appears that the programme has now been indefinitely shelved.
