HAT do you get when you combine the Apple iPhone 6s’ body with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s internals? This. And if you’ve been waiting for this flagship smartphone, we have good news for you: The Meizu Pro 6 Plus (click for complete specs) is finally coming to the Philippines, based on this post on the manufacturer’s Facebook page.
EMEMBER the smartphone with two front cameras that we wrote about two weeks ago? It’s finally coming to the Philippines! We already got an invite to the launch. In fact, the Vivo V5 Plus is now being teased on the company’s Facebook page, just in time for the local unveiling on January 21.
HE countdown to Chinese New Year is on. And just in time for the festivities at the end of the month, OPPO has launched a New Year Anniversary edition of the R9s in red (click for complete specs). Devilishly hot red. It’s an absolute stunner — the company’s best-looking phone to date — and we have the photos to show it.
few days ago, videos by Total Tech set the mobile world on fire when they showed what is supposedly Nokia’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8, in Qualcomm’s booth at CES 2017. After all, many people are still rooting for the brand. And with TK O’Connors — the man behind the YouTube channel — talking about specs that could catapult Nokia to the top of the smartphone charts again, who wouldn’t hope that he was right?
HERE have been numerous leaks involving Samsung’s next flagship model, some of which seem more credible than others. Like this set of photos published on Weibo — China’s Twitter, if you may — that are said to be a Samsung Galaxy S8 unit in gold.
HEY are not stopping with the vanity tax. After a controversial Philippine bill proposing to tax beauty and cosmetic products was filed January 11, here comes another plan that may end up being contentious, too.
S we previously reported, Nokia is back… sort of. The Nokia 6 by Finnish company HMD Global, which won the rights to stamp the universally celebrated brand on both smart and basic phones, is the first Nokia to run Android. It’s also a midranger with an aggressive price tag (1,699 yuan, roughly $250 or P12,200) and an even more aggressive strategy for the Chinese market, where it will be exclusively available for online purchase.
E’VE seen foldable mobile devices, but they’re all just concepts — stuff that look cool but may never see the light of day. Not in the near future. Maybe not ever. None of them have gone into production just yet. But that may change soon.
HERRY Mobile has a new phone on the market — and it isn’t the dual-screen Taiji, which could unceremoniously launch this month or the next. The flavor of the week (or the next few weeks?) is the Cherry Mobile Cosmos Three (click for complete specs), a phone we played around with alongside the Defender and Taiji in mid-November. It’s currently rolling out to stores nationwide with a P9,999 price tag.
AMSUNG Electronics Philippines has fired its opening salvo of the year, launching two of the three models that are part of the 2017 edition of the Galaxy A Series. The lineup has been listed on the tech giant’s global press site since early January.
SUS unveiled the ZenFone 3 Zoom last week at CES 2017, but gave no word on how much it will cost when it drops in stores next month. The consensus is that it could be pretty expensive because of the advanced dual-camera array strapped to its back. But now we know the price of the top-of-the-line Zoom variant (click for complete specs).
NOTHER January, another CES done. And once again, this year’s edition of the biggest consumer-electronic show gave us a look at what’s out there in the world of technology and what’s about to come. 2017 is even memorable as CES celebrates its 50th anniversary.
T’S the final call at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. It’s been weird and at the same time brilliant. We’ve seen some memorable tech over the past week, and we’re very much looking forward to the day some of the products arrive in Philippine stores. Or maybe they won’t — because it’s totally plausible that most of the devices we’ve covered won’t make the trip to this side of the planet.
T’S been 10 years since Steve Jobs introduced the original iPhone. Yes, it has been that long. Today, the iPhone remains Apple’s most important product and its biggest cash cow, though it hasn’t been smooth-sailing for the Cupertino-based tech firm lately.
HERE’S a new OPPO smartphone on the Philippine market, this time carrying a more affordable price tag than the one that came with the P12,990 ($262) OPPO F1s. In keeping with that comparison, we like to think of it as a smaller, cheaper version of the F1s sans a fingerprint sensor and the 16-megapixel front camera that made us do a double take.
HE cellphone pioneer from your childhood is back, albeit with a lot of help from a company you probably haven’t heard of. After months of speculation, the first true Android phone with the Nokia branding has surfaced.
HAT do you know? Just when we were not looking at the Philippine market because of all the CES 2017-related news coming our way, Huawei has rolled two new smartphones to local stores, the Huawei Mate 9 (click for complete specs) and the Huawei GR5 2017, also known as the Honor 6x (click for full specs).
ND when we say “the rest of the world,” we meant outside Xiaomi’s native China. Because while we had initially thought that the company joining CES for the first time meant an announcement of a concrete roadmap for its entry to the U.S., it turned out that we had thought wrong.
T’S early in the new year, which means the internet is again rife with rumors about the possible design, specs, features, and whatnot of the next Samsung Galaxy flagship. We’ve heard quite an earful about how different (and how important) the Samsung Galaxy S8 would be compared to its predecessors, but so far we haven’t seen anything in the wild to confirm or support those claims. Until now.
OU have to give it to brands that just don’t give up no matter how many times they have been knocked down. Think Nokia. And this time, think BlackBerry. It seems that TCL, the Chinese electronics company that inked a deal with BlackBerry Limited to make smartphones under the BlackBerry brand, is hell-bent on reviving the once-iconic name.
