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.

A new member in Huawei Nova Series; Huawei Nova 4

Following its global launch in December, HUAWEI today launched the new HUAWEI Nova 4 to Malaysian consumers. Developed through a better understanding of consumer needs and current industry trends, the HUAWEI Nova 4 brings the innovative Punch FullView Display experience for the first time to Malaysian consumers, together with cutting-edge premium design and AI technology.

Running on Kirin 970 and 8GB RAM, the HUAWEI Nova 4 delivers the ultimate user experience on everything from productivity apps to high-octane action games. Shipped with EMUI 9.0, it allows users to access work and entertainment apps easily with a few simple taps and swipes.

“The HUAWEI Nova Series has always been about the pursuit of beauty and is designed to cater to the younger crowd who are fond of participating in trendy lifestyles.  Equipped with an improved photography experience and revolutionary AI technology, the HUAWEI Nova 4 embodies who our millennial consumes are,” said Luke Au, Product Marketing Director, HUAWEI Malaysia.

huawei-nova-4-malaysia-front-and-back

Echoing this sentiment, Hannah Delisha, HUAWEI Nova ambassador said, “As a part of the HUAWEI Nova family, it is very interesting to see how the Series has evolved over the years. With the HUAWEI Nova 4 and its AI-supported features such as Triple AI Camera, AI Smart Video Editing and AI Beautification, the smartphone continues to fit into my lifestyle with ease as I commute between photoshoots, drama sets and events. It has definitely become my new best friend.”

Level Up Your Photography Skills
The HUAWEI Nova 4 is equipped with the industry’s smallest 25MP under-display front camera, measuring 3.05mm in diameter, as well as a Triple AI Camera on the rear, featuring a high resolution 20MP primary camera, a 16MP ultra wide angle camera and a 2MP bokeh lens.

Following the HUAWEI P20 Pro and HUAWEI Mate 20 Series, the HUAWEI Nova 4 is HUAWEI’s first Nova product to feature a Triple AI Camera and ultra wide angle lens. This smartphone features a triple-camera module consisting of a 20MP primary camera and 2MP secondary camera, complemented with a 16MP camera augmented with ultra wide angle lens. The primary lens captures images with a high-end sensor whose pixel size is 1.0µm with better performance to capture the light. It also supports hardware-level background bokeh effect to highlight the subject, benefitted by the 2MP lens.

Equipped with an ultra wide angle lens, the 16MP camera supports a 117-degree field of view. After adjusting for distortion, its performance is equivalent to a 103-degree 17mm wide angle lens, capturing 2.4 times more information compared to 78-degree wide angle lens. Together, the 20MP high resolution camera and 16MP ultra wide angle lens makes the HUAWEI Nova 4 the perfect device for capturing endless plains or sprawling metropolis that stretch towards the horizon.

The Future of Displays: Punch FullView Display
Since the unveiling of the very first HUAWEI Nova Series, HUAWEI has never stopped in its pursuit of beauty. The HUAWEI Nova 4 sports a new generation 6.4-inch Punch FullView display – the first ever to be sold in Malaysia. A culmination of years of experience in premium design, craftsmanship and high technology, the Punch FullView display takes bezel-less displays to new heights with a minimalist blind hole opening for the 25MP camera. This design allows HUAWEI to eliminate the notch and achieve a screen-to-TP ratio of 91.8 percent, which makes for a truly natural and stunning viewing experience.

The 25MP front camera under the Punch FullView display is the industry’s smallest camera, measuring at only 3.05mm – 20 percent smaller than the current industry standard. The opening on the display is a blind hole, meaning the screen is not completely punched through. From assembly (sub-0.1mm margin of error) to adhesive application, the precise manufacturing processes minimise the light leakage from the edges of the blind hole. Additionally, HUAWEI optimised the light transmittance performance of the blind hole so it is on par to a through hole.

Artificial Intelligence Bolsters Video Editing and Gaming Support
The new HUAWEI Nova 4 fully utilises the hardware processing power and AI computation capacity of Kirin 970’s NPU to deliver a powerful and smart video editing experience. After taking a video with the HUAWEI Nova 4, users can activate the automatic footage analysis with one tap. This innovative feature leverages the smart aesthetics scoring engine. Trained with 60,000 basic models as well as one million facial models generated through facial recognition, the feature can automatically process
and edit footage.

Apart from that, the HUAWEI  Nova 4 also supports a new generation of GPU Turbo. This technology greatly enhances the graphics processing efficiency of smartphones by optimising the clock speed and power consumption of the chipset, allowing the HUAWEI Nova 4 to deliver an accelerated, top framerate experience even when running premium mobile games.

Furthermore, the GPU Turbo will serve as the foundation augmenting the core features of HUAWEI devices. It not only allows EMUI and application-layer graphics to run smoother, and supports nascent technologies such as AR and VR – it also endows the HUAWEI Nova 4 with limitless potential.

Pricing and Availability
Made for the youth, the HUAWEI Nova 4 is equipped with 128GB ROM and over-a-day 3,750mAh battery life. It is available in two fashionable colorways in Malaysia:

  • Crush Blue evokes a sense of mystery with a tinge of romance
  • Black exudes understated class.

Made available in Malaysia starting on 14th February 2019, the HUAWEI Nova 4 is retailing at a price of RM1,899.00 and can be purchased at all HUAWEI Experience Stores, display zones, authorised dealers and major telco companies.

Nova Academy
Also present at the launch event was Datuk Ahmad Izham Omar, CEO of Primeworks Studios, who announced a collaboration between HUAWEI, Primeworks Studios, and Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) on the Nova Academy. “Malaysia has an abundance of hidden gems and talented people especially in the entertainment industry, however, we don’t always get to tap onto their full potential.

The Nova Academy is an initiative to provide the right platform for our talents to get the education and in-depth training they need through a mentorship programme. I look forward to this exciting collaboration,” he said.

ASUS today debuted an all-new ZenBook series, with the launch of ZenBook 13 (UX333), ZenBook 14 (UX433) and ZenBook 15 (UX533). This fully redesigned series of premium thin and light laptops introduces the stunning new frameless Nano Edge display, which features ultra slim bezels on all four sides and an unrivaled up to 95% screen-to-body ratio 1 for a near-borderless viewing experience. The Nano Edge display also allows a much more compact design, with the result that each of the new ZenBook models has the smallest footprint in its class 2 .

The 13-inch and 14-inch models also optionally include the exclusive new Number Pad, an innovative productivity enhancement that provides a full-size LED-illuminated numeric keypad built into the touchpad. All models feature a special 3D IR camera that allows fast face login using Windows Hello, even in low-light environments.

img_20190110_140205

The combination of performance and mobility is a defining feature of the ZenBook series, and the new models feature a full complement of high-performance components including the latest 8th Generation Intel ® Core ™ i7 quad-core CPU, up to NVIDIA ® GeForce ® GTX 1050 Max-Q graphics, 16GB RAM, ultrafast PCIE ® SSDs and gigabit-class Wi-Fi.

All models are torture-tested to military-grade (MIL-STD-810G) reliability standards, with demanding tests that include environmental extremes of altitude, temperature and humidity, in addition to extensive drop, shock and vibration testing.

Ultraportable, redefined
The new ZenBook series ushers in a fresh era of ultra-compact, ultralight laptops that boast the smallest footprints in their class, a feat made possible by the new frameless Nano Edge design. The stunning frameless Nano Edge displays now feature ultra slim bezels on all four sides, creating an unrivaled 92% screen-to-body ratio that maximizes the screen area in the minimum physical space.

No-compromise productivity
For the ultimate on-the-go productivity, ZenBook 13 and 14 are equipped with the exclusive new ASUS Number Pad.

With any ZenBook, comfort is one of the top design priorities. The new ZenBook series goes the extra mile with the exclusive ErgoLift hinge, an engineering masterpiece designed to automatically tilt the keyboard to the most comfortable typing position. But that’s not all: the carefully calculated tilt improves cooling and audio performance, too.

img_20190110_140334

Unbounded performance
The new ZenBook series is built to deliver unbounded on-the-go performance, featuring up to the latest 8th Generation Intel ® Core ™ i7 processor and a range of fast graphics options, including up to NVIDIA ® GeForce MX150 discrete graphics on ZenBook 13 and 14.

Following our devotion towards selfie photography in the HONOR 9 Lite and HONOR 10, the HONOR 10 Lite pushes the boundaries of taking selfies even further.

  • HONOR 10 Lite’s AI technology levels up the selfie game with eight real-time scenario recognition. The AI-powered algorithm identifies different scene types instantly, allowing the camera to enhance your facial features and the background by modifying the exposure time. Supported by 3D facial recognition and AI beauty functions, the device can customize beauty effects based on your age, gender and skin tone, only exposing the best and most beautiful version of you in every shot.
  • Like its predecessors, its 4-in-1 light fusion technology allows the HONOR 10 Lite to capture more light in low-lit conditions. The 3D portrait lighting offers five different lighting effects, making every shot a cover shot.
  • The HONOR 10 Lite comes with a chipset that might sound familiar to everyone – the Kirin 710, which is a 64-bit octa-core mid-range performance mobile chipset. Its rear design is made from eight layers of shimmering material for a dazzling visual effect. The vibrant gradient color choices include the newly introduced Sky Blue, Sapphire Blue, Shiny Red and classic Midnight Black inspired by the light and color of the sky at different times of the day
  • Furthermore, the HONOR 10 Lite is equipped with the latest GPU Turbo 2.0 update and EMUI 9.0 operating system to further boost its graphic-processing capabilities within a 2340 x 1080p FHD display screen. These features allow the HONOR 10 Lite to perform better and enhances productivity, while being powered by a 3400mAh battery for long-lasting device usage.
