It’s been a few months since we first saw the complete lineup of Huawei‘s flagship — the Mate 20 series. After passing by Singapore first in Asia, the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS has found its way to the Philippines. For those who don’t know, this special edition Mate 20 is the most premium of the bunch.

Launched in London last October, the Mate 20 RS is in line with the rest of its Mate 20 siblings. It’s powered by the same high-end Kirin 980 processor, has 8GB of memory, and sports 256GB of storage. It also has a curved OLED screen in the front and the latest triple Leica cameras at the back.


Essentially, this is a Mate 20 Pro but wrapped in leather instead of glass. Still, the Mate 20 RS has wireless charging support for its huge 4200mAh battery. It’s pre-loaded with a Porsche-inspired theme, as well.

A premium phone comes with a premium price tag and in this case, it’s PhP 99,990. For comparison, it’s more expensive than the 512GB variant of the iPhone XS Max at launch.

It’ll be available at select Huawei concept stores (see list here) and through Globe’s ThePLATINUM Plan with a considerably lighter cashout starting at PhP 38,400. Only 20 units are available through Globe, so you should sign up immediately if you’re interested.

This luxury Mate 20 variant might be too much for the average consumer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a look inside its box. Check out our unboxing to see what you’re getting for a hundred thousand pesos.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will be out early 2020

Epic fights and interesting side quests to come!

Published

If Bandai Namco’s Dragon Ball FighterZ wasn’t hyped up enough for you, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot might be what your missing.

This isn’t just about epic fights that Dragon Ball FighterZ blew up and is now know for. If you haven’t known, this time, you get to try exploring what used to just be a backdrop. The game allows you to play through most of Goku’s life. It’s an action role-playing game that lets you immerse yourself in Goku’s story as you progress further into the plot.


If you don’t find the appeal in playing out Goku’s life, you might want to reconsider. The game looks pretty cool and the views can be stunning when you’re flying in third-person perspective. When fights break out, it’s a whole different story.

The perspective shifts to an over-the-shoulder fighting game. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot looks to be an interesting addition, drifting away from just letting us play hyped up fighting scenes. The game also lets you roam, mine, fish, and complete side quests.  

The game is going to be based off the anime. If you’re a huge fan of the anime, this is your shot to play it out in whole new immersive perspective.

When the heck is this game getting released? Luckily, it isn’t too far from being released. Bandai Namco just announced that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is coming out on the 17th of January 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Marvel’s Avengers is an epic action-adventure game developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos-Montréal, Crystal Northwest, and Nixxes Software. The game prides itself in stunning cinematic storytelling for both single-player and cooperative players.

It’s immersive and visually stunning which the developers hope would encourage players to live out their superhero dreams through the game.

Five years later, the Avengers reassemble despite being outlawed. This is where you come in. Marvel’s Avengers lets you encounter your favorite heroes as the plot ultimately progresses. None of the characters are blocked from your reach as DLC. The developers really wanted players to immerse in the plot and enjoy playing as their favored superhero.

If you’ve got a soft spot for games like these, you’re in luck. The game is coming out soon. Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia recently announced Marvel’s Avengers release date: May 15, 2020. It will be simultaneously released for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Google Maps incognito mode coming soon

It’s in testing phase now

Published

on

During Google I/O 2019, the company announced that it is bringing its incognito mode to its Youtube, Google Search and Google Maps apps. Youtube already got its incognito mode, leaving the two without it. However, that would soon change as Google is reportedly the feature on Maps, as spotted by XDA Developer’s Mishaal Rahman.

Incognito mode in Google Maps will be a boon for users who don’t want their location to appear on their timeline. It can also hide searches for places and locations where users can have their “private” time.


Baking it directly into the app is useful. It’s so much easier than having to access it via the Chrome browser’s incognito mode and search for the mobile version of Google Map’s website.

Google putting incognito mode into its native apps is in line with its mission to put more privacy controls in the hands of its users. As more and more tech companies are being scrutinized for supposedly interfering with their users’ private lives, Google’s move is surely a step in the right direction.
