Finally, it’s here. In addition to making the Huawei Nova 3i official in the Philippines, the tech giant’s local outfit also unveiled the quad-camera Huawei Nova 3 — at a price that won’t raise eyebrows.
The preorder period is over. Today, July 28, you can finally buy what we think is Huawei’s best value-for-money midrange phone thus far. The Huawei Nova 3i, priced aggressively at P15,990 (roughly $301), becomes official in the Philippines — and with Filipino actor James Reid as its endorser.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5 arrived late last year and brought the company’s entry-level series up to speed with the current smartphone trend of stretching the screen aspect ratio from the standard 16:9 to 18:9 or higher. Its successor, the Xiaomi Redmi 6, jumps on yet another trend. This time around, the focus is photography and the use of artificial intelligence for better, more DSLR-like results.
Previous leaks point to an upcoming Sony Xperia XZ3 that has two cameras on the back. But that information may turn out to be wrong. Based on a listing on 3D-graphics-benchmark database GFXBench, the smartphone will only have one rear camera — one with a megapixel count that’s close to 50.
The OPPO F7 is one of the most highly regarded smartphones the Chinese company has ever built. And amid rumors of a sequel launching soon in the form of the OPPO F9, OPPO Philippines will apparently drop the suggested retail price of the F7 from P17,990 (about $338) to P14,990 ($282), which is a significant discount from the current market value.
Alongside the Mi A2, the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite Android One smartphone has also been launched for those who yearn for the pure Android experience at a more agreeable price. The smartphone, as we have noted, is virtually identical — both inside and out — to the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro for the Chinese market.
Pretty soon after the Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite Android One smartphones were launched at a press event in Spain, the Chinese technology company announced the pricing of the two new devices in the Philippines.
Of the popular flagship smartphones that were launched in the first half of 2018, which has the longest battery life? Which one won’t likely let you down when you need your device the most?
The Xiaomi Redmi 6A, the company’s most affordable 18:9 entry yet, is set to go on sale in the Philippines tomorrow, July 23, alongside the Redmi 6. And to sweeten the deal even more, Xiaomi Philippines has announced that customers will be able to purchase the Redmi 6A online at a lower price than previously reported — for a limited time.
We have no doubt that the OPPO F7’s successor, called the OPPO F9 to keep pace with the company’s naming strategy, is on the cards this year. But a report saying that the smartphone has been given Bluetooth certification means it’s coming sooner than we think it is. The rumored launch is pegged sometime in late-August or September.
One smartphone launch after another. And this time, it’s the Meizu 16 that will get its time in the limelight.
Samsung and Huawei found themselves sharing the stage on Wednesday, July 18, having announced one midrange phone each for the Philippine market. There’s the Galaxy J8 for Samsung, whereas Huawei rolled the red carpet for the Nova 3i, after weeks of teasing and individual feature reveals.
Xiaomi has a new smartphone built for entertainment, as it’s carrying a colossal screen and the battery capacity to match. Meet the newly announced Xiaomi Mi Max 3.
The Huawei Nova 2i launched in the Philippines in October last year to a reception as warm as the smoldering heat of a tropical summer’s day, with customers getting their hands on one of the first quad-camera devices ever in overwhelming quantities. Now, less than a year later, the sequel has arrived, and one can wonder: Does the Huawei Nova 3i live up to its predecessor?
Huawei has taken the wraps off its newest stars, throwing them in the midrange ring, where competition is as fierce as it has ever been. Meet the Huawei Nova 3 and Nova 3i four-camera smartphones, priced as low as ¥1,999 (roughly P15,928 or $297).
Roll out the red carpet. The James Reid-endorsed Huawei Nova 3i is on its way here, officially, after weeks of being in the rumor mill.
We’ve got a surprise for you: The Xiaomi Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A were not the only smartphones that the company launched in the Philippines today. Its flagship phone, the Xiaomi Mi 8, is now official in the country, too.
Xiaomi is on a roll. Besides opening stores left and right in different countries, it is now listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, too. Here in the Philippines, it’s opening the third Mi Authorized Store at SM North EDSA in Quezon City. And just today, it has launched the Xiaomi Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, successors to the Redmi 5 and 5A.
No smartphone is perfect, but some are more problematic than others. And according to the latest State of Mobile Device Repair and Security Report, the Xiaomi Redmi 4 and Apple iPhone 6 had the highest failure rates among Android and iOS devices in the last quarter of 2017.
Just as it did last month, Beyond the Box — an Apple premium and authorized reseller and service provider in the Philippines — is holding an open-box sale at its Century City Mall branch.
With a going price of P13,990 (roughly $262), the OPPO F7 Youth was released in the Philippines in June. Since then, there have been plenty of good-to-great options that have come out bearing the same combination of fast processing power and agreeable price points. And yet, of all the similar phones that have been launched and made headlines recently, we found the F7 Youth to be the most compelling one out there in one particular area: gaming.
We’re just a few days removed from Xiaomi officially (and finally) launching the Mi Max 3 on July 19. There isn’t much we do not know about the device at this point. We’ve seen the TENAA listing and the supposed live images and hands-on video. Even the phone’s retail packaging has been reportedly spotted in the wild.
