Industry sources said the Chinese group is looking at companies which are under valued and have 5G capability to grow the business and at this moment are targeting TWO local telcos.

“They may target Green Packet Bhd and XOX Bhd. XOX  is the cheapest telco stock on Bursa Malaysia and are now one of the fastest growing telcos in Malaysia,” said industry sources with knowledge on the matter.

For information, XOX has about RM35 million cash on hand and currently offers the most competitive and innovative 4G data plan. It is focusing to build 5G infrastructure in the region.

This 5G technology has many to offers and some are:

  • to transform the landscape of telecoms as it promises faster download speeds and high network reliability
  • will open opportunities for new services, network operation and improved customer experience
  • providers will be able to increase both download speeds and monthly data capacity on unlimited plans
  • The transition to 5G is expected to generate a windfall for network, infrastructure, and equipment vendors

Three months ago XOX partnered with Advance Tech Communication Sdn Bhd (ATC) to launch 4G and 5G smartphones, with additional satellite communication capabilities termed XPLORE.

Therefore, XOX will be the FIRST MALAYSIAN telco to market and distribute the products to its users across Southeast Asia.

The smartphone, equipped with satellite connectivity and digital mobile radio, will be launched by ATC to XOX users. It is said that  XOX’s Executive Director Steve Tan has mentioned that the company aims to provide a unified network plan by integrating XOX’s prepaid plans and messaging platform with ATC’s extensive satellite emergency services. However, Tan was not available for comment at press time.

“XOX is quite strong as a company. It implemented the right marketing strategy as well as innovation ideas and products to see it through the current Covid-19 pandemic and drive the company forward. The success factor for XOX is built by leveraging on the brand, distribution channel with a solid growth of customer base,” said a source close to XOX.

Analysts believe telco stocks will rally as the sector is making handsome profits, amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

XOX is ranked FIFTH in the telco sector and is the Number ONE  MVNO company in Malaysia with current customer base almost reaching three million, including prepaid and post paid mobile phone users.

Last month XOX inked an agreement with DGB Asia Bhd to collaborate in the deployment of up to 1,000 next generation AI vending machines. This move is in line with XOX’s strategy to focus on different silos of its business to build up its revenue streams.

Valuations of telcos in Malaysia are becoming attractive again and the sector is expected to grow at an accelerated rate with the current shifts happening in digital landscapes such as 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI).

GOODYEAR Unveiled Four New Addition of Eagle Family

These new editions bolstering the variety of  Ultra High Performance (UHP).

hdr

They are:

  1. SuperSport RS
  2. SuperSport R
  3. SuperSport, Asymmetric 5
  4. SuperSport Asymmetric 3 SUV.

hdr

This launch in Malaysia comes after Goodyear’s recent sponsorship of three participating teams in the World Endurance Championship (widely known as the Le Mans), namely Jota Sport, Jackie Chan DC Racing and High Class Racing.

Alex Ng, Managing Director of Goodyear Malaysia said:

“Racing is in our DNA. Throughout the years, Goodyear has been involved in many races such as NASCAR, Le Mans and the British Touring Car Championship, therefore, it is inevitable that we will once again align ourselves with high-speed motorsports. We continue to innovate to bring cutting-edge technology and differentiated features to our tyres. The most important aspect is that motorsports allows us to test our capabilities and push our limits so that we can eventually achieve excellent technology transfer and utilise development experience from the tracks to the road.”

dav

As part of the official launch of the Eagle F1 family, Goodyear Malaysia recently announced two additional tyres, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV.

In addition to this series, Goodyear will be announcing a brand new tyre in 2020. This is part of Goodyear’s commitment for thrill seeking drivers and this tyre will enable all enthusiasts to enjoy premium tyres at competitive prices.

Fly With the Eagles

Designed for comfort, control and superior in the wet, the Eagle F1 SuperSport was developed for better grip and handling on the road. Through the usage of an innovative U-shaped compound, the Eagle F1 SuperSport Series has specialised power zones which creates pockets of control for superior wet and dry handling. The tyre also has a thread deformation protector which helps in maintaining its shape, allowing better footprint preservation for high-speed stability. To increase grip during cornering, Goodyear applied a closed outside pattern, which allows for more agile performance. Additionally, it also has a stiffer sidewall design which improves handling and stability.

Focusing on wet conditions, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 offers luxurious comfort and superior wet breaking. The specialised thread design and Impulse Control Compound Technology, a highly refined silica compound, allow the tyre to endure the force of high-speed braking, shortening the braking distance. This compound also allows a patch extension through Goodyear’s ActiveBraking Technology, which allows the tyre to slightly expand when braking to create more grip using its walls. In addition, the tyre is not only built for wet conditions – its Power Cushion Technology (stiff coupling of carcass and pattern) produces precise power transmission, leading to excellent dry handling.

For larger cars and SUVs, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV is designed to be sturdy while promoting better fuel consumption due to its low rolling resistance. It is also capable of shortening braking distance through ActiveBraking Technology, in any condition. It enforces stronger grip, which makes it easier for handling and braking. Its specialised compound known as the Grip Booster compound increases the tyre’s stickiness with the road surface, allowing it to be comfortable while maintaining handling when travelling at higher speeds giving the driver to total control.

Expanding the family

At the launch, Goodyear Malaysia also reacquainted the market with its other tyre families, namely the Assurance, EfficientGrip and the Wrangler series.

For the Assurance range, Goodyear offers a comfortable, quiet and safe drive of one’s vehicle by highlighting the Goodyear Assurance TripleMax 2, as well as the Assurance DuraPlus 2. The Assurance TripleMax 2 is equipped with the latest HydroTred technology for enhanced wet braking performance, while its asymmetric threads allows for better handling, and comfort performance for a quieter and safer drive. The Assurance DuraPlus 2, on the other hand, is equipped with TredLife technology and a specialised compound to reduce exterior noise, increase overall comfort, and at the same time allow for further milleage.

The EfficientGrip Performance is a tyre equipped with higher gripping compounds that enables shorter braking distances on wet roads. Infused with ActiveBraking Technology, the EfficientGrip Performance increases contact between the tyre and the roads increasing the braking distance performance for up to two meters on wet roads. This has allowed the tyres to be A-rated by european regulations. In addition to that, it also comes with FuelSaving Technology that reduces rolling resistance by up to 18% in comparison to its predecessor, Goodyear EfficientGrip. The inclusion QuietTred Technology also ensures that the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance is able to provide a quieter drive.

Aside from the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV, Goodyear also showcased the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance SUV. Similar to the EfficientGrip Performance, the EfficientGrip Performance SUV is designed to be quiet and comfortable to fit luxury highway SUVs. In addition to that, with reinforced and robust construction, the EfficientGrip Performance is equipped to match all driving conditions. Its QuietTred Technology reduces exterior and interior noise levels to provide luxury SUV drivers with a quieter ride. Goodyear’s FlexContact technology uses heavier gauge under thread and barrier cushion that reduces vibration and increases tire insulation for improved ride comfort

When it comes to the Wrangler series, the Goodyear Wrangler AT SilentTrac is equipped with Durawall technology provides light off-road durability with improved quiet and comfort for on-road and extended mileage, to achieve the best balance between on and off road. For the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac, the pattern offers additional transaction through its TractiveGroove Technology, which allows the treds to offer better grip in off-road situations. Furthermore, its highly angled centre tread blocks enhance traction as well as adds stability to reduce road noise, leading to a quieter drive.

“Each pattern was passionately designed to suit consumer demands depending on preference. we know that the tyre is in between the road and the drivers ability to have control of the vehicle. Hence, we continuously enhance our HydroTred technology to achieve better braking performance on wet roads as well as in various conditions. We understand that the tyre is the only point of contact between the road and the car, amplifying the importance of constantly innovating new ways to stay in control. This is why evolution of our patterns is important at Goodyear. With innovation, it has pushed Goodyear to push boundaries and set itself apart,” concluded Ng.

The PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III boast:

  • a 20.1MP, 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor
  • a wide aperture of f/1.8- f/2.8 with a good optical zoom of 5X (PowerShot G5 X Mark II) and 4.2x (PowerShot G7 X Mark III)

“Canon’s latest PowerShot G series offers upgraded features that improve cameras’ performance, to deliver on all levels so that users have the freedom to express themselves in any scenario.” said Albert Mah, Head of Imaging Communication Products Division, Canon Marketing Malaysia.

PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III

  • Superb Image Quality in Any Situation

Powered by Canon’s DIGIC 8 Processor, the key highlight of the two cameras is its 1-inch stacked CMOS sensor, which is larger than sensors typically found in compact cameras. This enhances the cameras’ performance with faster autofocus to produce crisp, clear shots in almost any light.

With a newly designed f/1.8- 2.8 lens with 24-120mm focal range which provides a 5x zoom (the PowerShot G7 X Mark III has 24-100mm focal range, giving 4.2x zoom), the PowerShot G5 X Mark II is poised to handle anything from shooting portraits to macro close-ups of 0.47x magnification and is excellent for creating shallow depth of field effects.

  • Fast, Confident Shooting

One major challenge of shooting fast-moving subjects is capturing that one perfect frame when the subject is in focus and in the desired position. Now, you can shoot boldly with the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III. Its pre-shoot setting will start shooting at 0.5 seconds before you even press the shutter release button. Hence, the moment will still be captured even if you press the shutter button a split second later. Photographs can be taken at a high speed of 30 shots per second in RAW burst mode (and 20fps in jpeg), making sure you miss nothing, especially if you are capturing jump shots or your child blowing out candles on a birthday cake.

Both cameras include a panoramic mode, activated by a simple push of a button. With horizontal or vertical panning, you can easily capture panoramic shots with amazing details in high quality.

  • Create Movies in Stunning Definition

Both PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III lets users capture 4K movies without crop, allowing you to take full advantage of your lenses to shoot landscape videos.

With 4K movies recorded in motion JPEG, frame grabs are possible, allowing users to review footage and at any given point, extract a moment from the video and save it as a high-quality 8MP JPEG on the camera.

With a tilting LCD on both cameras, you can shoot from different angles, from the ground up, or from high angles to create videos with a unique point of view.

  • Intuitive Features and Ergonomic Handling

With their highly pocket-friendly dimensions and ergonomic design, both the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III can easily fit into a slip-pocket in your bag, which makes them ideal choice for lifestyle users looking for an all-in-one camera for everyday use.

The PowerShot G7 X Mark III comes in two colours- black and silver. Users familiar with Canon’s EOS cameras would appreciate both cameras’ operation and intuitive control features, which has been upgraded from the existing compact digital camera’s user interface.

  • Versatile Charging and Advanced Connectivity

Both the PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III are capable of USB charging which makes it more convenient for users on the go.

The PowerShot G5 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Mark III are packed with connectivity features, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), to effortlessly connect with compatible smart devices with one single tap and switch seamlessly between Wi-Fi and BLE. Users can use the Canon Camera Connect app to perform network-related features.

Availability

  • The Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II is available in black colour and retailed at RM3,599
  • Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III is available in both black and silver colours and retailed at RM2,999

The new addition of new generation truly wireless headphones – the WF-1000XM3,  Sony’s Industry-leading Noise Cancellation is improved further with the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e chip and Dual Noise Sensor Technology which delivers exceptional Noise Cancelling performance, enabling you to hear the music and nothing else.

The next level of silence

The WF-1000XM3 headphones feature Dual Noise Sensor technology that works with the new HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e to catch and cancel noise respectively, so that all attention is on your music. Thanks to Dual Noise Sensor Technology, one feed-forward microphone and one feed-back microphone on the surface of the headphones catch more of the ambient sound around you.

Having caught the ambient sound, the dedicated HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e gets to work. The processor cleverly creates an inverted sound wave to offset bothersome background noise. It not only cancels more noise across almost all frequencies but also uses less power. Anything ranging from annoying aircraft cabin noise, to hustle and bustle on the city streets, is dramatically cancelled by the buds – so it’s all about the music.

Exceptional sound quality

Characteristic of the 1000X family, you can enjoy premium, high quality sound on the WF-1000XM3 buds and listen to your music the way that the artist intended. The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e also accomplishes stunning sound thanks to 24-bit audio signal processing and DAC with amplifier. Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) upscales compressed digital music files including MP3 formats, to bring you closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. Fully immerse yourself in high quality sound, whether you’re listening to music or enjoying the latest movies on the go and thereby transform the dreaded commute into a fun and relaxing escape from the commotion around you.

True wireless, true freedom

The truly wireless design of the WF-1000XM3 buds allows you to move freely without the nuisance of getting tangled in wires. The WF-1000XM3 buds are small and light but manage to pack in a newly developed BLUETOOTH® chip. This allows for L/R simultaneous BLUETOOTH® transmission which means that both left and right earbuds receive audio content at the same time, rather than the conventional left-to-right relay BLUETOOTH® transmission. Teamed with the new optimised antenna structure, this results in a highly stable wireless connection, so nothing gets in between you and your music. Also, low latency syncs what you see on screen precisely with what you hear on your headphones for enjoyable TV shows, videos and more.

The WF-1000XM3 buds are specifically designed for improved comfort and stability in the ear. The ‘ergonomic tri-hold’ structure holds the earbuds firmly in place, with three supporting points for the ear. A high-friction rubber surface has also been included to ensure a stable fitting. With four sizes of hybrid earbuds and three sizes of triple comfort earbuds, you can find your perfect fit.

Clever convenience

The HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e has low power consumption, boosting the battery life and your listening time considerably. You can listen for up to 24 hours with Noise Cancelling on, thanks to WF-1000XM3 earbuds’ sleek case that doubles up as a charger, perfect for a battery boost on the go. The buds even have a quick charge function – just 10 minutes of charging gives you up to 90 minutes of battery life.

For ease, you can use Quick Attention mode to communicate without removing your earbuds. Simply place your finger over the touch panel of the left earbud to quickly lower the music volume and let the ambient sound in, so you can hear announcements or order a drink. Plus, with the fully customisable touch sensors on the earbuds , you can easily play, pause, skip songs or activate your voice assistant with simple taps. Additionally, the new Wearing Detection feature automatically pauses your music when you remove one of the earbuds from your ear and resumes playing when you put the earbud back in your ear, so you never miss a beat.

Optimised for the Google Assistant , you can control your headphones by voice, making the WF-1000XM3 the perfect commuter companion. The headphones are also compatible with the Sony | Headphones Connect app, where you’ll find customisation features for sound, noise cancellation, touch controls and more.

Pricing and Availability

The WF-1000XM3 is available in Sony Stores KLCC and Curve, Sony Store online and all authorised dealers in Malaysia at RM949.
