iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro pricing in Singapore

With Apple Watch Series 5 pricing

Published

on

The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max are now all available!

While the iPhone 11 is the successor to the iPhone XR, Apple is stressing the fact that it is a flagship, pricing it lower than the iPhone XS. Inside the iPhone 11 is Apple’s newest processor — the A13 Bionic. This means it still is more capable than iPhones of the past and can perform much of the same tasks as the Pro models.

The first thing that will jump at you about the new iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max is the triple camera module. It’s these cameras and what they can do that put a lot of the Pro in the iPhone 11 Pro. Apple’s calling it the (hold your breath) Cutting-Edge Pro Camera System. The three cameras will give you three different views: Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto.

Pricing and availability

The new iPhones are now available in Singapore. The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will be available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB models in midnight green, space grey, silver and gold starting at SG$ 1,649 and SG $1,799, respectively.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 11 will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in purple, green, yellow, black, white and PRODUCT(RED) starting at SG$ 1,149.

The Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS) is also up for grabs and starts at SG$ 599. The Apple Watch Series 5 (GPS + Cellular) starts at SG $749.

In Malaysia the iPhone 11 family will be available starting Friday, September 27. Authorized resellers in the Philippines are still mum on pricing and availability but we’ll get the information to you as soon as we get it.

LG expands its 4K TV lineup in Singapore

4K is becoming more accessible than ever

Published

4K TVs are becoming more accessible to the masses. LG is expanding its 4K TV lineup in Singapore with new models that cater to a wide range of viewers. These TVs — UN71, UN72, UN73, UN80, and UN81 — all offer immersive viewing experience and AI enhancements.

A more immersive viewing experience

All of LG’s newest 4K TV models have slim and sleek designs that fit any space. Their tiny bezels allow for a more immersive viewing experience of any media content. On top of that, each TV comes with a quad-core processor that reduces image noise and enhances image clarity. The processor also supports upscaling technology, converting low-resolution media and reproducing them with a close to 4K quality.

Unique to UN80 and UN81 is the inclusion of in-plane switching (IPS) technology. With a 4K IPS panel, viewers can only expect vibrant and punchy colors every time they watch a media. All of LG’s TV models include a wide viewing angle so big families can enjoy watching no matter the content.

AI smarts for the user’s convenience

LG also packed its ThinQ AI into its new TV models. ThinQ AI integrates all LG connected appliances and devices, enabling seamless use between each other. Users can take advantage of this integration on their LG TVs by accessing the Home Dashboard and controlling connected devices. A user can control the room’s temperature or see the laundry’s progress just with their LG 4K TV.

Google Assistant is also built right into the new TV models, curating shows, and movies based on a user’s watch history. Various apps and services allow users to watch their favorite content right on their TVs.

Features for the big game

All 4K LED TVs also have low input lag for an uninterrupted gaming session. Plus, LG has included an HGiG mode that optimizes the TV’s viewing mode for gaming. These features combine with AI Sound and Ultra Surround, allowing viewers to hear more details out of the dialogues in games or sports.

LG’s newest 4K TV lineup is now available on all stores and dealers nationwide. For the UN81, LG is pricing SG$ 9,999 for the 86-inch model, SG$ 4,499 for the 82-inch model, and SG$ 3,499 for the 75-inch model. To know more about the newest TV lineup, visit LG’s website.

Google, Jio to make new Android-based OS for budget phones

What happened to Android Go?

Published

on

India’s technology company Jio is partnering with Google to make a new OS (operating system) that’s Android-based designed for entry-level phones. Jio is India’s largest telecom operator and launched service in 2016 with pan-India 4G services.

The company aims to make the country “2G-free” and provide 4G or even 5G services on affordable phones. Chairman Mukesh Ambani is focusing on providing a smartphone to 350 million people.

The country is already the world’s second-largest smartphone market. But being a developing economy with a population of 1.3 billion people, there’s still a lot of untapped potential.

Over the years, Jio has launched Jio Phone and Jio Phone 2. Both, run on KaiOS and offer a smartphone-like experience. However, these still look like feature phones and depend on truncated functionality.

Details about the new operating system haven’t been revealed yet. Google has previously tried to tap the entry-level market by releasing Android Go.

The fork of Android is limited in terms of compatible apps but is meant to run on inexpensive hardware. However, we’ve seen very limited phones running Android Go and it hasn’t been a very successful endeavor.

Today, Google announced that it’ll be investing $US 4.5 billion in Jio, gaining 7.7 percent stake in the telecom operator. At Google for India, the company had committed an investment of US$ 10 billion in India over a period of five-seven years. However, it seems like much of it is already gone.`

It’s worth noting that Facebook has also acquired a stake in Jio. Reliance, Jio’s parent, has launched an online shopping platform called JioMart and it shall be deeply integrated with WhatsApp.
