HONOR Newest Addition: Honor 20 Lite Is Now In Malaysia

HONOR announced  the latest addition to the HONOR series, the HONOR 20 Lite is launched in Malaysia!

 

HONOR 20 Lite Phantom Blue & Phantom Red

Thoughtfully designed for the way we connect, communicate and express ourselves through images and videos, the HONOR 20 Lite is packed with HONOR’s industry leading smartphone cameras: a triple-lens rear camera, wide-angle lens, and breakthrough 32MP selfie camera that helps users make the most of every moment, along with a comprehensive list of top features.

 

HONOR 20 Lite launch

“To better meet young people’s needs of technology, design, personal expression and community engagement, we are committed to delivering the latest premium features at an accessible level for them,” said George Zhao, President of HONOR.

“Aware of the unique way the young people want to express themselves, HONOR is working tirelessly to refine its camera capabilities. The pioneering 32MP front camera and triple-lens camera system in the HONOR 20 Lite have been created for the socially active and highly visual generation to help them capture the most precious moments in life effortlessly and co-create a new lifestyle together.”

Recognized for innovative devices with advanced features and a well-placed marketing strategy, HONOR not only reigns supreme in its home country as the No.1 smartphone e-brand, but achieved remarkable results overseas with a 170% growth in global sales in 2018.

In 2018, HONOR was a Top 5 smartphone brand in market share in Russia, Finland, Germany, Italy, France, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine and Czech Republic, based on a GfK report. In Europe, HONOR has experienced an explosive growth in sales volume since its entry, with a 200% increase in the UK and 500% increase in Spain, according to market-level data.

“The smartphone evolution is moving at a fast pace, and with competition so stiff, brands will need to constantly innovate to cater to changing consumer demands while remaining competitively priced. We commend HONOR for introducing yet another quality smartphone to the local market, this time with wide-angle lens and an industry-leading selfie camera, so that you look your best in every shot. This also reflects our beliefs in providing affordable products without compromising quality, or making luxury goods more accessible to Malaysians, looking at how costs are on a constant rise. We are privileged to be a partner in this HONOR 20 Lite exclusive launch as well as the HONOR Super Brand Day which offers users the best of HONOR when they shop on Shopee. We look forward to working closely with HONOR to offer Malaysians an excellent service to stay connected with one another,” said Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director, Shopee.
Key features of the HONOR 20 Lite

Triple-Lens Camera to Capture What You See

The HONOR 20 Lite’s 24MP primary camera captures the view with breath-taking realism, rich in detail, sharpness and colour. With the f/1.8 wide-aperture lens and the Quadra CFA sensor, the camera system boosts light sensitivity and lets more light pass through, allowing for epic shots in low-light environments.

The 120-degree ultra-wide angle lens is a feature you will only see in premium smartphones. You will be able to capture the full scene (e.g. iconic buildings, full view of long beach, panoramic city view), regardless of where you are.

To elevate the photography game, the Super Night Shoot mode effortlessly produces silky smooth night shots without a tripod, while the AI multi-scene recognition, capable of recognizing 22 categories of objects and 500+ scenarios, helps you create professional-grade photographs with ease.

Breakthrough 32MP Selfie Camera

The HONOR 20 Lite’s AI-enhanced 32 MP selfie camera is HONOR’s best front-facing camera setup yet. It takes selfies to another level, effortlessly converting selfies into 2.3×1.7m-sized celebrity posters without compromising details. The built-in AI beauty algorithms intelligently touch up selfies based on gender, age and skin tone, creating the most perfect yet natural look you could ever want.

With the AI backlighting imaging technology, the HONOR 20 Lite’s selfie camera makes sure the most flattering amount of light is well-captured under any conditions – be it backlight, sidelight or front light. The impressive lighting capabilities are made possible by the flawless combination of a 32MP ISO-enhanced lens, the screen ring light-filling technology and the Quadra sensor.

Impeccable Experiences across All Dimensions

The powerful combination of hardware and software delivers an upgraded and flagship-like experience that helps you get the most out of everything you do – all in your palm.

The HONOR 20 Lite is an exquisitely-crafted art piece in an avant-garde gradient design that comes with two beautiful finishes –Phantom Blue and Phantom Red. It is ergonomic with a 3D curved body and rounded corners. With a minimalist dew-drop notch and an over 90% screen-to-body ratio, its 6.21-inch FullView HD screen creates an immersive entertainment experience.

The HONOR 20 Lite is powered by a Kirin 710 chipset that delivers a seamless and fast experience, comparable to that of a flagship smartphone. The 4GB RAM further enhances the processing speeds, while 128GB storage enables you to keep your favourite moments and bring all the hit TV dramas on-the-go.

Based on the EMUI 9.0 operating system, the HONOR 20 Lite enables a smarter life. The EMUI 9.0, optimized by the latest Android 9 system, represents an overall software upgrade that features a concise user interface, enhances data management system and optimises user experience. Not only is it your dedicated, caring personal assistant that counts calories in every meal with just a scan of the food, but also your public library that answers all of the questions.

Availability

In conjunction with the launch, Shopee will be organizing a Super Brand Day from 22 April to 26 April 2019, offering deals on selected HONOR products.

Vivo V15Pro Unveils Cutting-Edge Tech to Rev Up the Mobile Experience

Vivo finally unveiled the all-new V15Pro smartphone in Malaysia.

3. L-R Vivo Brand Ambassador Janna Nick, Vivo Malaysia CEO Mike Xu and Vivo Brand Ambassador Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza launch the V15 Series smartphone

The V15Pro is Vivo’s first model after the NEX to incorporate the industry’s first Elevating Front Camera. It packs upgraded AI technology, bringing consumers a stunning full-screen smartphone with an intelligent personal assistant that understands and anticipates their needs.

V15Pro_06

Vivo once again is breaking new ground by elevating the mobile experience with this latest affordable V series addition that packs in many high-end technologies that usually feature in only the most premium phones.

In addition to the Elevating Front Camera, the V15Pro includes cutting-edge technologies like its AI Triple Camera that takes pro-photography on the smartphone to another level, plus In-Display Fingerprint Scanning.

“Innovation is one of our core values. Aside from the industry’s first Elevating Front Camera which gave us the ultimate bezel-less display, we are always looking to bring other game-changing features, such as higher-quality cameras and smarter AI services that transport the mobile experience to a new dimension.” Said Mike Xu, Chief Executive Officer of Vivo Malaysia.

“The V15Pro is a clear example of our commitment to bringing advanced products to consumers from all around the world and from all walks of life.”

Elevating Front Camera Makes Possible Super AMOLED Ultra FullView™ Display

Taking inspiration from the groundbreaking NEX, V15Pro carries the same Elevating Front Camera, but better. V15Pro comes with a staggering 32MP Front Camera to capture even better selfies with unrivalled clarity. Vivo has further upgraded the mechanics of the Elevating Front Camera in V15Pro. Design enhancements also ensure the camera is sturdy enough to withstand daily wear-and-tear.

The innovative Elevating Front Camera which first debuted at MWC 2018 as a concept and was featured in the first NEX has effectively created the ideal full-screen display without compromising on photo quality or camera position. With the elimination of the notch, V15Pro now has a staggering 91.64% screen-to-body ratio, creating an unprecedented immersive viewing experience for gaming and video viewing. The Super AMOLED Ultra FullView™ Display on the V15Pro now has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and is 6.39 inches diagonally. Its side and top bezels have been reduced to a razor-thin 1.75mm and 2.2mm respectively.

Capture the Perfect Shot with a Stunning AI Triple Camera

V15Pro comes with AI-embedded solutions that take the mobile photography experience to the next level. With an AI Triple Camera, V15Pro allows consumers to take photos with stunning clarity and a wider perspective.

Users can easily capture professional-grade photos with a snap, thanks to the 48 Million Quad Pixel Sensor , 8MP AI Super Wide-Angle Camera, and 5MP Depth Camera. The “four-in-one pixel” technology in the main rear camera combines four pixels into one large pixel to deliver high-quality 12MP photos even in the dark. The AI Super Wide-Angle Camera can expand up to 120 degrees , capturing more people and fuller landscape shots.

This powerful hardware is complemented with AI to make professional photo-taking a breeze. Borrowing from V11, V15Pro is equipped with AI photography features including AI Face Beauty and AI Portrait Framing. The all-new AI Super Night Mode makes shaky night shots a thing of the past, as consumers can now capture amazing night scenery without a tripod or a DSLR camera.

AI Super Night Mode can instantly take multiple photos at different exposures. It then brilliantly combines them to greatly improve brightness and clarity, meaning night scenes can now be captured with a high level of detail and stability.

With the all-new AI Body Shaping feature, users can now look naturally perfect by adjusting every aspect of the body such as the waist and legs – users will no longer need to use photo-editing applications to look their best.

In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology Brings Out the Best in Sleek Design

V15Pro also incorporates Vivo’s popular In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, which is now in its 5th generation with higher fingerprint pixel density and more sophisticated algorithms allowing consumers to unlock their phones in a more secure and intuitive manner.

Without a physical fingerprint pad, the sleek back cover adopts a unique Spectrum Ripple Design in Topaz Blue or Coral Red, that reflect different shades at different angles, complementing the futuristic innovations housed within V15Pro.
AI-Powered Performance for a Smoother and more Intuitive Experience

Vivo’s AI has made another leap forward, with a more powerful Jovi, the personal assistant that understands your needs and desires better than ever.

The brand-new AI-powered Jovi Image Recognizer has access to almost 100 mainstream e-commerce platforms such as Shopee and Zalora, so it can easily search through databases of over half a billion products for you. With a simple scan, you can now directly locate the product you need and enjoy futuristic AI shopping.

Simply use the new Smart Button on the side of V15Pro to release the power of AI. One press activates the Google Assistant, while two calls the Jovi Image Recognizer into action. It’s easy, intuitive, and fast. V15Pro also has its own customised voice commands developed in partnership with Google to answer to your needs. Whether you want to activate AI Face Beauty, clean up phone memory, or search for food pictures in your album, just utter the command and V15Pro will do it for you immediately.
Avid gamers will love the upgraded Game Mode 5.0. It comes with the new Competition Mode that allocates system resources to prioritise game performance, and Dual-Turbo, which reduces frame-drop by 300% and increases smooth gameplay.

V15Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 675AIE Octa-core processor with 6GB RAM + 128 ROM, ensuring ultra-smooth performance. Consumers can also have peace of mind that their phone will be up and running at all times thanks to Vivo’s latest Dual-Engine Fast Charging technology, which tops the V15Pro up to about a quarter of power in just 15 minutes.

Availability

V15Pro in Topaz Blue and Coral Red will be available for pre-order, which comes with a complimentary gift box in Malaysia from 26 February to 1 March 2019 via its roadshows at select locations, Vivo Concept Stores, authorised dealers and collaboration partners.

Additionally, Vivo will also be holding a V15 Pro Superday Sale on 2 March 2019 at Sunway Pyramid (Blue Concourse) where early birds will received a complimentary DJI Spark selfie drone (on a first come first serve basis) and a Vivo gift box.
