Earlier today, we were at Oppo Malaysia’s HQ for a brief preview session with the company’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Find 7 and its sibling the Find 7a. Both devices will be launched next week, and we had the chance to check out Oppo’s handsome new smartphones in the flesh.
So, by now you should know that the 2014 FIFA World Cup season pass on Astro is priced at RM 100. Of course, that’s unless you already subscribed to Astro’s Sports Pack before 30 April or Super Pack before 31 May – then you will have access for the tournament as part of your subscription without extra charges.
Astro apparently has also working on plenty of additional elements to add more value to the viewing experience of its World Cup coverage. In another words, Astro’s 2014 FIFA World Cup coverage is not just about those 64 live football matches from the tournament even though they are still the main attraction.
Previously, it was mentioned during the global launch that the Oppo Find 7 and Find 7a will be available in two colours – Midnight and White – with the high-end Find 7 to receive an exclusive Carbon back cover, featuring a carbon fibre design. An Oppo Malaysia representative has just confirmed to us that when the Find 7 and 7a are launched next week, they will be able to purchase the Carbon colourway for both models.

To offer high-end hardware is half the story. Great phones offer a package: superb hardware, precious design, amazing build quality and finally, great software to go along with everything. Does the OnePlus One offer all these and beyond?
