WE’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.
CHERRY 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.
ASUS 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).
ANOTHER 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.
IT’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.
IT’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.
THERE’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.
WHAT 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).
