Last week, Microsoft has made a surprise announcement that it will be shifting future Nokia X products to Lumia Windows Phone family in order to produce more low-cost Lumia devices. Generally, this mark the end to Nokia X platform even though Microsoft stated that the company is still committed to the existing Nokia X devices until 2015.
True to its words, we believe that we might be able to see Nokia X2 in Malaysia soon. This is due to its appearance on SIRIM’s database; registered as RM-1013 by Nokia Malaysia as well as two of the brand’s long-time distributor, Zitron and Avaxx.
So the past few iPhone 6 front panel torture tests we saw were pretty impressive. Even though the display finally succumbed underneath a 1.6-tonne vehicle, the rest of the tests seems to show that the Sapphire glass can practically go unscathed in all scratch tests with keys, knives and even hammers but is it really scratch-proof? Spoiler alert: the latest torture test says no.
Xiaomi’s annual product launch event will be held in Beijing next Tuesday, where the company is expected to announce a host of new devices for the year. The most anticipated among these would be Xiaomi’s latest flagship smartphone, which may be called the Mi 4. With just a few days to go before the official announcement, the rumour mills have already gone into overdrive.
Here’s what to expect at next week’s Xiaomi event.
After a long wait, ASUS Zenfone 5 has finally arrived in Malaysia last month with a slight change to its component. As you might know, the device is now equipped with 2GB of RAM instead of just 1GB as per original announcement.
Here comes another surprise though: we have just learned that the next shipment of ZenFone 5 for the Malaysian market will apparently feature a bigger internal storage space as opposed to the model that was released last month.
Now that we’ve seen pictures of a working iPhone 6 clone, how about catching it in action? Two videos of the iPhone 6 have been posted online recently, and not only does the device look like the iPhone 6 leaks we’ve been reading about so far, it also runs on an OS that is almost identical to iOS 7.
So the iPhone 6 Sapphire glass performed very, very well in the last torture test we saw, but it doesn’t mean that it’s unbreakable. A video was posted by HK’s Apple Daily website, showing off a series of tortures made to the iPhone 6 front panel and finally crushing it under a vehicle.
The Sony Xperia Z2 may be relatively new in the market but make way for the next flagship smartphone from the Japanese company. More pictures of the alleged Sony Xperia Z3 have been making their way around the internet over the past couple of days and if it’s something you’ve been waiting for, hit the break to check them out.
The Sony Xperia M2 is without a doubt one of the best mid-range Android smartphone from Sony and it looks like it might get even better. A Sony Xperia M2 Aqua has been spotted in FCC in the U.S. and judging from the name, it sould be a water-resistant version of the Xperia M2.
Back in February, Oppo officially entered our market by releasing its unique N1 smartphone alongside Find 5 Mini, R1 and Neo with much fanfare. The company then followed up with Find 7a and Find 7 as well as Joy and Yoyo in May.
But since then, things has been relatedly quiet for the company although it is true that Find 7 was only released into our market barely two weeks ago. Nevertheless, don’t worry Oppo fans; it seems the company is already working to release the next set of devices into Malaysia.
Renders of Samsung’s upcoming virtual reality headset have begun appearing thanks to the efforts of Samsung fan site SamMobile. Called the “Gear VR”, the headset will apparently be making an appearance later this year at IFA 2014. The name follows the naming convention of Samsung’s wearable line, although nobody is entirely sure if Samsung expects people to wear this for extended periods of time.
So we’ve been seeing multiple rumors and leaks about the upcoming iPhone 6. The device, to be available in two different sizes, is said to come equipped with a Sapphire Glass on its front but just how strong is Sapphire Glass and should you be excited? YouTube user MKBHD recently posted a video showing a series of tortures he made on the front panel he received from Sonny Dickson. The result? It’s very tough indeed.
Sony has just confirmed that it will be launching a selfie-centric smartphone tomorrow but guess what? Pictures and even a video of the device, rumored to be called the Xperia C3, have already been published into the internet. Dressed in turquoise back, the device may look like your typical Xperia smartphone, but interestingly, it comes with a LED flash light at the front.
