    • Blue Arctic
    • Purple Mirage
    • Red Aurora
    • Brown Autumn

    DiGi Offering "Google" Smartphones Contract-Free

    If you were wishing for a Samsung Galaxy S4, LG Nexus 4, Sony Xperia Z or HTC One without any contract but still at a subsidized price, then DiGi is the first telco to offer this type of deal. Covering four of the major smartphones in Malaysia, another thing setting them apart is that they all offer Google Edition versions although, we're pretty sure you won't get the Google Edition if you buy any of them except for the LG Nexus 4. While you won't be contracted for 12 or 24 months you will be signed on with a DG SmartPlan 58 but you can terminate the plan anytime without any early termination fee.

  • Rumours: Samsung Galaxy S4 with LTE Advanced Coming Soon?

    Rumours: Samsung Galaxy S4 with LTE Advanced Coming Soon?

    Hot on the heels of the recent rumour about the Samsung Galaxy S4 Plus is news that a Samsung Galaxy S4 version with LTE Advanced may be coming to South Korea next month. Coming from an announcement by Samsung's CEO J.K. Shin, the news confirms the existance of such a phone but he declined to name names. The only thing he did confirm was that it would be powered by a Qualcomm chipset and cost more than the current Samsung Galaxy S4. While LTE Advanced is not 5G, it does offer transmission speeds double than those of existing 4G LTE networks. While this also means you need to have an LTE Advanced compatible network in place already, many developed countries are probably looking to implement LTE Advanced very soon.

    Nokia set to Reinvent Zoom on 11 July

    While there have been rumours and leaks nothing beats an actual event, which is what Nokia has done by sending out invites to an event on 11 July 2013 in New York. In the teaser invite, it mentions "Zoom. Reinvented". This could be a direct dig at the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom which was recently officially announced and that Nokia are finally going to release their rumoured EOS cameraphone. The Nokia EOS has already been leaked many times and will likely be the Nokia 808 PureView successor, complete with larger than average camera hump on the back.

    Samsung Reveals Internal Reliability Tests

    We've all seen any number drop tests, torture tests and reliability tests from various sites, but does Samsung actually do any reliability testing of their own? Well, it appears they do, and not just in the usual rather amateurish way most other tech sites go about it. Imagine having dedicated machines to test dropping, tumbling, impact, heat and water submersion and you get an idea of how strictly Samsung tests the reliability of their smartphones.
