The World’s First Leica Quad Camera HUAWEI P30 Series Landed in Malaysia

Just one week after its highly celebrated global launch in Paris, HUAWEI  launched the HUAWEI P30 Series in Malaysia.

HUAWEI P30 MY Launch_1

Evidently surging ahead as a tech leader and leading the smartphone industry with many “world’s firsts” in recent years, such as the World’s First Leica Dual Camera with the HUAWEI P9 Series, World’s First AI Processor Smartphone with the HUAWEI Mate 10 Series, World’s First Leica Triple Camera with the HUAWEI P20 Series and now, with the World’s First Leica Quad Camera crowned to the HUAWEI P30 Pro, HUAWEI is proving to be a record breaker in the smartphone industry.

unnamed

Featuring the innovative HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor, an optical SuperZoom Lens, a new HUAWEI Time of Flight (ToF) Camera, and enhanced optical and AI image stabilisation technology, the HUAWEI P30 and HUAWEI P30 Pro can capture incredible photos and videos in every scenario, placing emphasis on the HUAWEI P Series’ DNA in design and photography.

“Last year, the HUAWEI P20 Series started a revolution in static photos and managed to retain the number one spot on the DxOMark leaderboard for a year. Today, the HUAWEI P30 Series will play a vital role in changing consumer’s expectations towards smartphone photography,” said Matthew Ng, Deputy Country Director, Consumer Business Group, HUAWEI Malaysia.

The new HUAWEI P30 Series comes fully equipped with:

  • a SuperZoom lens, fitted seamlessly into the ultra slim chassis
  • through a new periscope design, the HUAWEI P30 Series supports a high-fidelity magnification of 5X optical zoom, 10X hybrid zoom, and up to 50X zoom.
  • A prism element in the telephoto camera bends light at a 90-degree angle to maximise focal length while minimising camera height, allowing minimal disruption on the device design.

This expertise in smartphone photography is proven with its recent achievement of a record-high overall DxOMark score of 112 for its HUAWEI P30 Pro smartphone. True to its achievement, the HUAWEI P30 Pro is equipped with a new Leica Quad Camera System, including a 40MP main camera with the HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide angle camera, an 8MP telephoto camera, the HUAWEI ToF Camera and a 32MP front camera that takes selfies to a whole new level.

“In recent years, HUAWEI has been leading the trends with numerous breakthroughs. We aim to strengthen our footprint in surging ahead as a tech leader with our continuous research and investment in technological inventions and innovations. Innovations such as the HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor and SuperZoom Lens allow us to push the envelope of both photography and videography – a frontier long overdue for disruption. The HUAWEI P30 Series will set the pace for the next generation of smartphones by empowering people to capture the true beauty of the world around them through a device that fits in the palm of their hands.” added Matthew.

During the launch event, HUAWEI addressed the need for an all-scenario intelligent ecosystem by announcing the availability of the HUAWEI MateBook 13. Equipped with the remarkable HUAWEI Share 3.0 with OneHop technology, HUAWEI has solved the challenge of transferring files between Windows and Android devices by changing the way users share pictures and videos between devices. This feature solves the pain point that conventional PC makers fail to address. With OneHop, tap and share documents, images, texts, and videos between your HUAWEI P30 Series smartphones and laptops in just a single tap.

To further enhance this ecosystem, HUAWEI also announced new additions to its HUAWEI WATCH GT line-up – the 46mm and 42mm Editions – industry leading fitness and wellness tracking capabilities in a premium classic watch design. While the HUAWEI WATCH GT supports a range of indoor and outdoor fitness activities, the new HUAWEI WATCH GT 46mm and 42mm Editions now feature a ‘Triathlon’ mode will be made available via an update, in addition to the HUAWEI TruSeen™ 3.0 heart rate monitoring and TruSleep™ 2.0 scientific sleep tracking features.

Realme 3, The Trendiest Smartphone With Gradient Unibody Design

The trendiest smartphone in the mid-range segment, featuring a Gradient Unibody design: define the “young creative aesthetic” of the mobile phone industry

Image 1 (from L to R) - Tiffany Teh, realme malaysia; Joee Cheong; Hunter Wang, ; Izzue Islam, Max Wong, Lazada Malaysia; and KC Har; realme malaysia

realme Malaysia, a smartphone brand that is Proud To Be Young and is dedicated to creating high-quality experiences for young people, released its realme 3 smartphone.

Image 5 - One of two phone cases from Joee Cheong's Galaxy Inspired Collection

Now  offering an exclusive discount for the realme 3 (3GB RAM + 32GB ROM) in conjunction with Lazada’s 7th Birthday Sale on 27th March 2019.

Image 2 - Models with the realme 3 smartphones

“The realme series has already sold more than 5 million units worldwide. As the latest product in the realme series, realme 3 leads the charge for the brand into 2019 and builds on the success of realme 2, realme 2 Pro and realme C1.

realme 3 represents how we continue to comprehensively upgrade performance and design, bringing new products and experiences to young consumers, and why we are their undisputed first choice in our price segment”, said Tiffany Teh, Brand Manager, realme Malaysia.

“We are happy that realme has chosen to continue their rapid growth in the Malaysian market by partnering with Lazada. Having realme onboard with us offering deals exclusive to Lazada’s 7th Birthday Sale allows us to provide our shoppers with trendy, accessible technology at great price points. It’s our birthday, but it really is your party,” said Sherry Tan, Chief Business Officer, Lazada Malaysia.

Gradient Unibody Design creates stunning looks and smoother, lighter body
realme 3 utilises Gradient Unibody Design, matched color to take the quality of whole phone to new heights, bringing the best tactile and visual experience to consumers in this segment.

The traditional “sandwich” format of screen-middle frame-back cover is abandoned, for an integrated injection moulded body, eliminating the need for a middle frame, to achieve a better grip. At the same time, it makes the whole phone look smoother and lighter, to fit perfectly in one’s hand.

In order to give young people the best visual experience, realme 3 uses gradient colour matching:

  • Dynamic Black-based on a two-tone black-blue scheme which goes through a three-round spraying process to achieve a natural gradient between black and blue.  And the blue part uses special painting which changes with the viewing angle, appearing to shift between blue and purple. The addition of pearl powder gives the back cover a more colorful look and greater depth.
  • Radiant Blue-color scheme offers another visual effect, combining a mirror effect produced with the NCVM process by vaporizing a silver reflective layer onto the back cover, then spraying over a translucent blue-green ink to create a graduated colour effect.

Ultra-high screen-to-body ratio, dewdrop screen provides stronger immersive experience
realme 3, based on realme 2, has upgraded its screen from a notch screen to a dewdrop screen that integrates the front camera, light sensor and distance sensor. The handset integrates the small “dewdrop” at the top of the screen, resulting in a screen ratio as high as 88.3%.

The new realme 3 means a wider field of view, greatly improved information display efficiency, and a stronger visual immersion when browsing images and videos.

Stronger processing power

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

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.

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.
