RICOH THETA — Spherical video: Getting off the MTR at Central Station. #theta360

Meizu MX4 goes Pro with '2K+' screen, fingerprint reader and 'Retina Sound' — It wasn't all that long ago when China's Meizu unveiled its latest phone, the MX4, but the real flagship is actually what the company announced today. As you can tell from the name, the new MX4 Pro is a beefed-up version of the earlier model, yet it's still priced very competitively and is almost just as comfortable to hold.

Opera Max can now save Android mobile data in 16 more regions — Over the last few months, Opera's been slowly rolling out Max across the world to save mobile data -- apparently by up to 50 percent, including images and videos -- on Android devices, and its recent collaboration with MediaTek is no doubt a big boost to the service's street cred.

GoPro-ready Ghost drone touts easy tilt control and auto-follow mode — As a recent episode suggests, Parrot and DJI are the two most recognizable names in the consumer drone market right now, but they are about to face a new contender. Merely three months ago, we met Ehang who showed off its heavy-duty hexacopter at TechCrunch Beijing; and now, the Chinese company is also pushing its more affordable Ghost quadcopter onto Indiegogo.

60 seconds with the world's first Bluetooth padlock — In just a matter of three months, the Noke smart padlock managed to make its way from Kickstarter to our Expand event as an Insert Coin contender, so of course it's rather special. First of all, it's a Bluetooth 4.0-enabled steel bolt that can be unlocked with a click on the shackle when your iPhone or Android phone is nearby.

Five questions for the man making contactless wireless power a reality — First came Qi, and now we have Rezence. These are the two big names in the wireless power industry, except the latter is still in its infancy as it's kicking off with a different type of technology: magnetic resonance.

Parrot Zik 2.0 review: still the world's most advanced headphones — If you're into drones and wireless audio, then you'll probably agree that Parrot is the best thing out of France since Daft Punk. Personally, I've been most impressed with the company's wireless headphones, the Zik. In fact, I've been a regular user since it came out about two years ago.

Oppo N3's motorized swivel camera takes selfies to the next level — If you thought Oppo was done with making eccentric selfie phones, you're wrong; the Chinese company is back with a new model dubbed the N3 to replace the N1 from last September. The iconic swivel camera at the top is here to stay, but this time we have a 16-megapixel f/2.2 module and it's motorised!

At just 4.85mm, Oppo R5 is the world's slimmest smartphone — Step aside, Gionee, as your record for the world's slimmest smartphone has just been beaten by a fellow Chinese manufacturer. Oppo's R5, the successor to the Asia-only R3, comes in at just 4.85mm thick, thus beating the 5.15mm-thick Elife S5.1 from Gionee.
