Huawei's affordable sub-brand, Honor has launched several handset models in Singapore and the latest model to hit the market is the Honor Play.
Positioned as a gaming phone, the Honor Play is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 970 octa-core processor (yes, the same processor used on Huawei's P20 Pro), 4GB RAM and Mali-G72 MP12 GPU. Its 64GB internal storage is supplemented by a microSD memory card slot which doubles as a secondary SIM slot. Other specs include Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.2 overlay, a 6.3-inch LCD display (2,340 x 1,080 pixels), a 3,750mAh battery, a fingerprint sensor on the back, a rear dual-camera module (16MP f/2.2 + 2MP f/2.4) with LED flash, a front-facing 16MP f/2.0 camera, FM radio, USB Type-C port and Bluetooth 4.2.
The official Honor store on Qoo10 is now listing the pre-order price of the phone at S$429. You can use the S$30 coupon to bring the final price down to S$399.

2.) Xiaomi Mi Max 3
In case you missed it, Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Max 3 less than a week ago. It is currently the biggest phone in Xiaomi's lineup, boasting a massive 6.9-inch 1080p 18:9 display.
Packed under the hood are the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB RAM, MIUI 9.5 based on Android 8.1 Oreo, and a whopping 5,500mAh battery. The Mi Max 3 also offers a dual-camera module on the rear which consists of a primary 12MP sensor and a secondary 5MP sensor, and an 8MP front-facing camera.
NEWSTAR Electronic is selling the Mi Max 3 (direct import from China) for S$369. Unfortunately, the Qoo10 coupons are not applicable for use.
3.) Sonos Beam
Sonos recently launched a compact sound bar - the Sonos Beam. It is available in a choice of black or white, and weighs just 2.8kg. It has far-field microphones for voice control and integrates well with smart assistants. This means you don't have to buy a dedicated Amazon Echo or Google Home speaker to obtain voice assistant and smart control functionality as these functions are integrated within this sound bar, thus it can function as a hub for other smart devices in your home too. The Sonos Beam has four full-range woofers, three passive radiators and one central tweeter driven by five class-D digital amplifiers.
The Sonos Beam is available for purchase at TCAcoustic on Qoo10 for S$699. You can use the S$30 coupon to bring the price down to S$669 or find a friend/family member to purchase two sets and use the S$120 coupon! Or perhaps consider one for your hall and one more for your room? If you succeed buying more than one, you can get the Sonos beam at just S$639 each!
4.) Garmin Fenix 5 Plus Multisport GPS Smartwatch Series (5 Plus, 5S Plus, 5X Plus)
The Fenix 5 Plus series are the high-end smartwatch models from Garmin. In terms of size, the Fenix 5S Plus is the smallest with a 42mm face followed by the Fenix 5 Plus (47mm) and the Fenix 5X Plus (51mm). Each model has each own set of options for face material, watch color, band type and band style, hence there is a range of prices for each model.
All three models come with new features such as color maps, Garmin Pay and offline music playback. The Fenix 5X Plus has a Pulse OX Acclimation feature to measure pulse oxygen saturation levels (also known as SO2) and a ClimbPro page to provide real-time information on current and upcoming climbs.
As for battery life, the 5S Plus is rated for up to 7 days in smartwatch mode and up to 4 hours in GPS and music mode. You can get up to 10 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and 8 hours in GPS and music mode. The Fenix 5X Plus offers the longest battery life with up to 20 days in smartwatch mode and 13 hours in GPS and Music mode.

5.) Anker Nebula Capsule Smart Projector with 360 Speaker
Anker is known more than just an accessory maker for cables, chargers and power banks; its Nebula Capsule claims to be the world's most crowdfunded home entertainment campaign.
It is an ultra-portable projector (roughly the size of a can of Coke and weighing just over 400g) running on Android 7.1 OS with a built-in 5,200mAh battery that can provide up to 30 hours of music playtime in Bluetooth speaker mode or 4 hours of movie playtime in battery mode.
The advanced DLP technology in the Nebula Capsule uses IntelliBright algorithms to deliver 100 ANSI lumens of brightness and project up to 100 inches across, thus transforming any space into a theatre or big screen gaming area. It also has a dedicated control app for you to operate the Nebula Capsule directly from your phone. Take note that the native resolution is only 854 x 400 pixels, so it's not even HD Ready standard, but if you need to project something big and quick, it will get the job done. As such the Nebula Capsule should be viewed as a multi-tool accessory rather than a single purpose-built product.
You can get the Nebula Capsule Smart Projector with 360 Speaker from the Anker Official Store on Qoo10 at S$479. The shop is offering a 10% coupon for your purchase, but the Qoo10 $30 cart coupon is not applicable. This brings the net price down to S$431.
