Thanks to Letv for inviting me to Beijing, China, for the launch of their new mobile phones along with other Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and India media. This is the first time Letv is venturing into the smart phone market.
For the unaware, Letv was founded in 2004 by Jia Yueting (net worth US$3.7 billion) and is one of China’s biggest and fastest growing Internet companies. The company employs more than 5,000 people and is listed on the Growth Enterprise Market in China with a market capitalization of more than US$12 billion (Source: Wikipedia).
Many people come to know YotaPhone 2 as the phone with two screens. It is the world’s third phone with two screens as far as I know. The first is YotaPhone 1 which didn’t make it to Singapore and the second is NEC Medias W N-05e which is also not available in Singapore.
The YotaPhone 2 is retailing in Singapore for S$1,048 and you can buy it online via YotaPhone.com or Expansys. Note that the price S$979 on these two websites are before the 7% GST.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 4G+ and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 4G+ will be officially available in Singapore from this Saturday, 11th April 2015.
For the Samsung Galaxy S6 4G+, it will come in three sizes, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. Three colors will be available at launch, White Pearl, Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum. The 4th color, Blue Topaz will be available at a later date.
Bought my Nexus 6 from MobyShop for S$870 and traded in my Nexus 5 (16GB) for S$200. Ended up paying S$670 for the phone.
When I first held the Nexus 6, it gives me a sense of premium feeling because the phone frame is made of aluminum. For once, the Nexus phone series doesn’t look and feel cheap. Maybe that is why the Nexus 6 is so much more expensive than the Nexus 5.
4 months after the launch of Nexus 6, Nexus 6 is now officially available in Singapore for a recommended retail price of S$998.
Only the 32GB variant will be available and in both colors, the Midnight Blue and Cloud White. Since the Nexus 6 will only be retailing exclusively though open channel (retail stores), it will not be available at Telcos like Singtel, Starhub or M1.
Xiaomi’s Redmi Note was launched in Singapore on the 8th July 2014 and later at 12pm today, Xiaomi will be launching the Redmi Note 4G in Singapore. Similar to the previous launch, 5,000 sets of Redmi Note 4G will be made available.
The Redmi Note 4G will retail for S$229 while the Redmi Note will still be retailing for S$199.
