MDM Product Roundup – Vol 22 No 36

The OnePlus 2 smartphone (OnePlus Plans Second Exclusive Handset) has been launched. However, in keeping with the company’s theme of exclusivity (and to garner more attention), potential customers must register online before being “invited” to buy the phone. The OnePlus 2 has a 5.5″ display (1920 x 1080), an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB (16GB model) or 4GB (64GB model) of RAM. Invitees will be able to purchase it for £200 ($310).

Portrait Displays is providing its Chroma Tune colour-control software for MSI‘s newest Prestige notebooks, as well as its Gaming and Workstation series models. Chroma Tune is being used in conjunction with MSI’s True Color Technology, to accurately control display colours and enable preset modes for different usage scenarios.
