HONOR 8S Now Available In Malaysia; Retails For RM399

HONOR quietly rolled out its entry-level HONOR 8S smartphone. Much like the mid-range HONOR 8X and HONOR 9X, the phone sports a similar design pattern, albeit with slightly different hardware in specific areas.
To start, the HONOR 8S’ AllView display measures in at 5.71-inches with an 84.6% screen-to-body ratio. Moreover, the display is also certified for TUV Rheinland eye comfort, meaning that it has less emission of blue light than other displays.
Underneath the hood, the HONOR 8S is powered by a 12nm MediaTek MT6761 quad-core SoC that runs on a frequency of 2.0GHz. The chipset is helped along by 2GB of RAM, as well as a 3020mAh to keep it running. Internal storage capacity is, unfortunately, limited to just 32GB, but it is expandable by up to 512GB via the phone’s microSD card slot. On that note, the phone also supports dual SIM cards.

Moving to the HONOR 8S’ cameras, the phone’s main camera is a single 13MP f/1.8 sensor, which the selfie camera at the front is a 5MP sensor. Clearly, it’s not the best camera setup we’ve seen, but again, it’s an entry-level device.
On that note, the HONOR 8S is already available in Malaysia and retails at an SRP of RM399. You can purchase the phone at all HONOR outlets and authorised resellers in Malaysia, as well as via the brand’s official online store.

Supposed Samsung Galaxy Fold Successor Appears Online; Sports A Clamshell Form Factor

There have been a number of previous rumours regarding the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Many of them pointed at a design closer to a clamshell. If recent images that surfaced online are to be believed, it may very well be the case.
Prominent leaker Ice Universe shared on Twitter what he claims to be shots of the next generation Samsung Galaxy Fold. They supposedly first surfaced on Chinese social media. There’s a fair amount of detail in the few shots, but most importantly, they reflect previous rumours of a clamshell.
While not quite a square, the supposed next Samsung Galaxy Fold does fold into a much smaller shape, making it easily pocketable. Unlike, say, the Motorola Razr, it folds symmetrically, so there’s no protruding chin. When unfolded though, it has a very elongated display, much like the Razr. It also comes with a punch hole camera in the middle. Around the display, the bezels are uniform, but definitely on the thick side by today’s standards.

There’s also an elongated button on the right, which is likely the volume rocker. Next to it though, there looks to be another button that protrudes a lot less from the body. There also seems to be a mono speaker grille and a USB-C charging port at the bottom, which are not surprising. And on the back, we see a dual camera setup with an LED flash.
Beyond that, it’s hard to make out any other details from the leaked shots. Here’s hoping previous reports of an April 2020 release is accurate, so that we can find out for sure if this is indeed the next Samsung Galaxy Fold.

Alleged Live Images Of The OPPO Reno 3 Pro Surfaces Online

For weeks now, OPPO has been dropping hints for its Reno 3 smartphone with bits and pieces of info, photos and even videos. While on the unofficial side of things, an alleged live image of the Reno 3 Pro that showcases the phone’s design was recently uploaded online.
Well-known and reliable leaker IceUniverse uploaded two photos on their Twitter account which allegedly features the front and back designs of the OPPO Reno 3 Pro. It’s unknown if the photos were taken by the leaker themselves or was tipped by another person. Interestingly, the supposed Reno 3 Pro seems to be attached to a security tether which might suggest that it is displayed in a showroom of sorts.
The phone’s curved display and button placements seems to match the teaser video uploaded by OPPO Vice President Brian Shen in a past tweet, while the punch-hole selfie camera on its display, and the quad camera setup on its back seemingly confirms previous Reno 3 rumours and leaks that were circulating around the web.

According to IceUniverse, the OPPO Reno3 Pro is light and thin, features a 90Hz display, and – in their words – “almost perfect.” Meanwhile back on the official side, a video teaser showing off the phone’s impressive Ultra Steady Video Pro image stabilisation system was recently uploaded by OPPO’s Brian Shen.
The OPPO Reno 3 series is suggested by the company to launch sometime this month, but an exact date has yet to be confirmed.

LG Electronics Announces LG 2020 Ultra Monitors For Professionals And Gamers

LG Electronics recently introduced their new LG 2020 Ultra Monitor series which will be showcased during CES 2020 in Las Vegas. The series consists of three models including the LG 2020 UltraFine Ergo, UltraGear and UltraWide monitors which caters towards professionals and gamers alike.
2020 LG UltraFine Ergo Display
LG Electronics’ new generation of Ultra monitors to be unveiled at CES® 2020 are designed to dramatically improve the user experience with superior design and cutting-edge performance.
The LG UltraFine Ergo is developed with working professionals in mind, where it features an arm-type stand with a high degree of adjustability to create an ergonomic and customisable workstation. The monitor sports a 32-inch 4K UHD monitor and is powered by LG’s One Cable solution via USB-C. The latter enables the Ergo to provide 4K imaging, fast data transfer, and even power for laptop charging through a single yet convenient cable. Lastly, it also replaces the conventional monitor stand with a desk clamp for extra desk space, while its One Click mount-system further simplifies its set up.
2020 LG UltraGear Gaming Monitors

The LG UltraGear gaming monitors provides a 27-inch 4K UHD display with 1ms Nano IPS and a refresh rate of 144Hz, which can be overclocked to 160Hz. For the ease of precise colour reproduction, the monitors also offers hardware calibration to maximise LG’s IPS technology. The series also is equipped with a DisplayPort which enables VESA Display Stream Compression (DSC) support that allows for virtually lossless performance when handling 4K UHD visuals. VESA DSC is HDR and NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible, which allows the UltraGear monitors to offer variable refresh rates and adaptive sync technology.
2020 LG UltraWide Monitor

Finally, we have the LG UltraWide monitor that provides a 38-inch curved QHD+ display with 1ms Nano IPS, 144Hz refresh rate, an aspect ratio of 16:9, and supports NVIDIA G-SYNC. Other than that, the monitor also supports VESA DisplayHDR 600 for a truly dynamic HDR experience, and features Thunderbolt 3 connectivity which is an ideal feature to have for any workstation.
Aside from showcasing their 2020 Ultra Monitors at the upcoming CES 2020 event, LG has not unveiled a release date or pricing for this series. That said, it’s expected that the company will provide further details when the aforementioned event takes place next year.

Resident Evil 3 Minimum PC Requirement Listed On Steam

Earlier this month, Sony gave the world its first glimpse at Capcom’s remake and upcoming sequel to the Resident Evil 2 remake, Resident Evil 3 (RE3). The good news is that the game is already listed on Steam and with it, its minimum system requirements.
For your PC to effectively play the RE3, your PC will need to be fitted with either an Intel Core i5-4460 or AMD FX-6300 CPU and have at least 8GB RAM. Further, you’re also going to need either an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R7 260X graphics card. Your system will also require DirectX 11 on it; upon meeting the criteria, your system should be able to run the game at 30 fps on Full HD resolution.
Oddly enough, the page still doesn’t yet list down RE3’s recommended hardware, and simply states that a 64-bit processor and OS will be needed. However, considering that the game seems to be running on the same engine as the Resident Evil 2 remake that launched earlier this year, it’s possible that the recommended requirements could be identical.

For context, The RE2 remake required a either an Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-9590 or better, 8GB RAM, and either a GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 480 in order for the game to run at 60 fps in Full HD resolution.
Resident Evil 3 will be officially available on Steam 3 April 2020. The game is also pre-purchasable for RM247.

Rise of Skywalker is the Worst Reviewed Star Wars Movie Since Phantom Menace

With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, JJ Abrams had the monumental task of uniting a divided fanbase. Safe to say, he passed with flying colours. People who love The Last Jedi and hate it, all dislike The Rise of Skywalker. Jokes and hyperboles aside, it really is a terribly uninspiring and highly frustrating film.
To take an excerpt from my own review:
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a frustrating final chapter, one whose skeleton is feeble and made out of nothing but nostalgic candy, whose flesh is see-through, blood is thin and whose heart doesn’t pound like the drums at the back of Dragon boats but whimpers softly.
It looks like the larger critics circle feels the same way too. The Rise of Skywalker currently has a 58% rotten score on the popular aggregator site, Rotten Tomatoes.
Check out the full list below. By order of release:

A New Hope – 93%
Empire Strikes Back – 94%
Return of the Jedi – 82%
The Phantom Menace – 53%
Attack of the Clones – 65%
Revenge of the Sith – 80%
The Force Awakens – 93%
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – 83%
The Last Jedi – 91%
Solo: A Star Wars Story – 70%
The Rise of Skywalker – 58%

There are a number of interesting takeaways from the scores above. But do keep in mind that we’re just talking about aggregated numbers. It’s not the be-all and end-all. The beauty of cinema is that it’s subjective.
Anyway, as divided as the core fanbase (on the internet) has been with many of these films, The Rise of Skywalker is only the second Star Wars film to receive a Rotten score, the first being 1999’s The Phantom Menace. There are four films that have received a score higher than 90%, including the divisive The Last Jedi and the ‘remix’ of A New Hope, The Force Awakens. The highest score is unsurprisingly attained by Empire Strikes Back, while the most harmless of the lot, Solo: A Star Wars Story gets a decent 70%.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is currently playing in Malaysian cinemas. May the Force be with you, always.

Huawei Mate Xs To Be Showcased During MWC 2020

The Huawei Mate Xs was previously announced as awaiting a March 2020 release. It looks like the sequel to the company’s first foldable phone will be making another appearance MWC next year.
Frandroid reports that Huawei CEO Richard Yu confirmed the device’s appearance at MWC 2020. He also mentioned an improved hinge mechanism and a more resistant display on the foldable phone. This is in addition to the Kirin 990, the inclusion of which was announced previously.

Yu also mentioned a possible release in Europe, but did not specify an exact date. It is likely the Huawei Mate Xs will enter the Chinese market in March 2020 as initially announced, but its status elsewhere remains unknown. According to Frandroid, Yu said he would like to see a release in Q1 of 2020. Incidentally, the original Mate X has not reached other markets beyond China.
Further into the future, though, Yu has confirmed that Huawei is willing to make more foldable phones. He also said that we wants future devices to be lighter than the ones that are currently in the market. That said, the only other foldable phone that’s in the market right now is the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

Alleged Huawei P40 Smartphone Renders Leaked Online

Well, that didn’t take long. Shortly after its confirmed debut next year, alleged renders which showcases the design of the Huawei P40 series smartphone has been leaked online.
The alleged renders was uploaded by industry leakster OnLeaks on his Twitter account, as well as Indian tech website 91Mobiles. As usual of the leaker’s initial renders of a particular phone, the supposed Huawei P40 model is presented in a silhouette-like style which does not give out too much detail upon observation.

From the looks of it, the phone features a curved display which is expected to be around 6.1 or 6.2-inches. Due to the phone’s vague presentation in the render, it’s not known if it will sport a notch or punch-hole housing for its selfie camera.

On its back, the supposed Huawei P40 appears to have a rectangular camera island but we can’t say for sure how many cameras are expected to be on it. Besides that, the volume rocker and lock button is located on its right side, while a speaker grille, USB-C port, and SIM tray can be seen on the phone’s bottom.
