THE iPhone X is undoubtedly the star of today’s Apple event, but its base price of $999 (roughly P50,914) could drive some people to the cheaper supporting cast — the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
IN the aftermath of Android flagship announcements, all eyes have turned toward Apple and the more striking, the more stimulating iPhone X (it’s pronounced “ten,” not “ex”), in particular. And the American tech giant delivered. Like, big time.
XIAOMI did it again. It surprised us at the October 2016 launch of the Mi Note 2 with the unveiling of the Mi MIX. Almost a year later, it took us aback once again at the Mi MIX 2 and Mi Note 3 launch with the announcement of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro.
MOMENTS after officially taking the wraps off the nearly borderless Mi MIX 2, Xiaomi unveiled another big-screen, high-end phone in the Mi Note 3 (click on this for its complete specs and prices).
APPLE is set to announce a trio of new iPhones Tuesday, September 12th (September 13 in the Philippines), and the model we’re all excited about will likely be called iPhone X, while the other two will be known as the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
ANDROID One, Google’s line of budget devices that’s originally targeted at developing markets, is alive and well indeed. Just days after Xiaomi launched its first phone with stock Android, we’re hearing that Motorola may be the next manufacturer to release an Android One handset.
THE OPPO A71 is now available in stores across the Philippines. Unlike the F series smartphones, however, it isn’t being marketed as a “selfie expert” — and rightfully so. The tagline this time around is “speedy operation,” harping on the octa-core processor and the 3GB of RAM that it incorporates, as well as the perceived performance tied to the hardware inside.
