    Rumours: 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 6 mockups appear?

    It is still quite a while yet before the upcoming Apple iPhone 6 gets announced, but already mockups of the smartphone have appeared. This time around, the leaker is Sonny Dickson, who was one of the first rumour mongers last year to come out with the official Apple iPhone 5S and 5C smartphone mockups. The new Apple iPhone 6 mockups come in two flavours, one with a 4.7-inch screen while the other goes for a 5.5-inch display. The side by side comparison shows that they are both very thin but follow the Apple iPad mini design with rounder corners and slimmer bezels. Check it out for yourself but there are still no details on other tech specs, features or Malaysia release dates. Stay tuned and we'll keep you posted.

    Rumours: 4.7-inch Apple iPhone 6 coming in July 2014 while 5.5-inch iPhone coming in August 2014

    Rumours about the next Apple iPhone say that manufacturing for a 4.7-inch display Apple iPhone 6 could start as early as July 2014. A still unnamed 5.5-inch display iPhone is expected to begin mass production in August 2014 while a 4-inch iPhone is expected to continue production. The rumours come from the supply chain as usual with Foxconn Electronics expected to do most of the production. Still no news on whether the ongoing 4-inch display smartphone will be the iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S. Still no news on pricing or Malaysia release dates but with all rumours do remember to take this one with a pinch of salt.

    OPPO R1 review - Premium looking midrange cameraphone at a good price

    Premium looks don't always mean premium performance, especially when the price of the mobile device isn't at a premium. Unfortunately, there aren't that many premium looking Android smartphones out there that both perform well and cost affordable but OPPO hope to change that perception with the OPPO R1, their second smartphone for the Malaysian midrange market.

  • Maxis lets you trade-in your smartphone for an Apple iPhone 5s starting at RM0

    Maxis lets you trade-in your smartphone for an Apple iPhone 5s starting at RM0

    As if preparing early for the coming of the Apple iPhone 6, Maxis have opened up a trade-in program for the Apple iPhone 5s. You will need to have an iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S3 or Galaxy Note 2 you're not using though, as these 4 smartphones are the only ones Maxis will accept for the trade-in. The trade-in period is from now till 31 July 2014 (which sort of makes us think we could see the iPhone 6 sooner than earlier expected). You will have to sign up for a Maxis iValue plan under a 24 month contract though. Loyal Maxis users who have been with Maxis longer than 1 year won't have to pay the advance payment. Maxis won't require you to bring the box, charger or accessories when you trade-in your old smartphone but you'll have to go to a Maxis Center or Maxis Exclusive Partner shop to do the trade-in. Check out the details in the table and links in this article.
