News & Reviews: Apple iPhone 6s Plus
Last Updated: Feb 25, 2016
Optical Image Stabilization or OIS is often the key feature which lets you take steady shots and videos with your smartphone. However, the Xiaomi Mi 5 now offers a new 16MP rear camera with 4-axis stabilization to go with other high-end tech specs like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. This anti-shake feature goes head-to-head with the OIS and smart digital stabilization in the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in the video below. Check it out to see which one stays steadier.

While we're about six to seven months away from the actual official release of the Apple iPhone 7, the wishfully thinking designers have already come out with their own renders. A new one recently surfaced showing off a Super AMOLED display, ceramic back, waterproof design, A10 processor and no 3.5mm headphone jack. The overall design remains the same though, retaining the rounded metal frame from the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
The no headphone jack feature certainly seems likely indicating a thinner iPhone 7 but the rest seem very much like wishful thinking to us. While this cycle of the iPhone iteration should result in a differently designed smartphone, Apple have never made any waterproof smartphone to date, so there is no reason for them to start now. As usual of such rumours, do take it with a good pinch of salt. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet, but stay tuned for more details.

We've seen quite a few add-on jelly lens that you can either seal on or clip on to a smartphone but ExoLens takes it a step further by offering a wide-angle, telephoto and macro add on lens using Zeiss optics. Quite obviously, the add-on lenses are much larger than your average jelly lens, but the frame is also suitably larger as well and can be mounted on a standard tripod stand. So far, it is just for the Apple iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 6 and 6 Plus but there are plans for a Samsung Galaxy phone version as well. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details but ExoLens should be available in Q2 2016 at $299 (RM1322) for the macro and wide-angle lens or $199 (RM880) for the telephoto lens.

So according to the Wall Street Journal, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are to be released early next year and will feature a pressure-sensitive display on their new device. If you think the feature sounds familiar, it is...because it’s basically like a 3D Touch from the Apple iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and the Huawei Mate S.
If this is true, then the reason why Samsung is doing so is to compete with Apple next year. As you may be aware, rumours have it that Apple is planning the “iPhone 6c” along with the second generation of Apple Watch some time in March. Whereas Samsung could announce the new Galaxy series at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona around February.

If you’re wondering what’s that big fat iPhone cover on the image, well that’d be the new iPhone 6s Smart Battery Case by Apple. They have quietly launched it in their online store and it costs $99 (RM421.67).
Coming in Charcoal Gray and White colour options, inserting the Apple iPhone 6s into the charger will automatically display an intelligent battery status on the smartphone’s lock screen and in the Notification Center, it also increases the talk time by up to 25 hours, 18 hours on internet usage, and even longer audio and video playback. We don’t know how much mAh is that, but that’s seriously a lot of power.

Recently a new research report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo surfaced, with plans about Apple’s 2016 iPhone launches, including the rumoured A9-based 4-inch iPhone and a 3GB RAM iPhone 7 Plus.
According to this report Apple has a new 4-inch iPhone in the making that has a similar design to the iPhone 5s. Although equipped with an A9 processor, it will not include 3D Touch support like the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. This is to keep the two products as their own. Apple aims to release the new product in the first half next year and could ship 20-30 million units through the end of 2016.
