The Launch of Ninetology U9 Smartphone Series & “Tech Kaiju Arena” Blogger’s Review Program

Ninetology Marketing Sdn Bhd, an ASEAN mobile device technology company has finally makes their entry into the Premium Smartphone category with the launch of its U9 series of smartphones.  The U9 series unite-as-one power-infused technology and the urbanite profile to present three models, X1, Z1, and Z1+, which are new and stylish devices engineered to meet the human needs of speed, precision and high levels of engagement.  


Urbanites can now enjoy premium Quad-core smartphones very much suited for their upbeat lifestyle, hassle free. Well, what I can say right now is Ninetology is currently pushing in the Quadcore smartphone market but deliver a more affordable product to users.

Sean Ng, CEO of Ninetology Marketing Sdn Bhd said, “We are currently second largest in terms of mobile device market share in Malaysia.  With the introduction of the U9 series, we hope to further strengthen Ninetology’s position as well as to grab a sizeable share in the Premium Smartphones category beginning by targeting the urbanites.”



Bloggers were invited to the Ninetology Urbanite Bloggers Gathering at Hiton Hotel KL on the 31st of July 2013.



“This is just the beginning,” Ng added.  “In the near future, we plan to deliver various segments of smartphones with premium performance tailor-made for the needs of various customers.”
“We begin with three models, emphasizing on each of their individual form or style to represent the spirit of U9 in this very launch. We focus on the need of users, their demands, behavior, favourite mobile device trends alongside the urban concept as the ultimate platform.”



Three main preferences were opt for in building the smartphones which are outlook and design, prominent sizes and premium technology as cores of each individual model. Best technology solutions were added to complete U9’s product development to meet user satisfaction.



“Powered by Android 4.2 and a MediaTek MT6589 1.2GHz Quad-core processor, the U9 series delivers a richer smartphone experience at a competitive price.  Customers enjoy access to more than thousands of applications including social network, productivity and utilities, entertainment, and appstore.”

Bloggers busy trying out the smartphones.


U9 smartphones is ideal for viewing videos, games, and other content as it has super-fast connectivity and one of the largest smartphone display screens in the market (4.8 to 5.7 inches) with 309 ppi and 1280 x 720 super AMOLED HD for stunning viewing quality.  Handling all that content is a breeze.  Already with 16GB ROM/1GB RAM of internal memory, X1 and Z1+ also offers SD memory card support, allowing up to 32GB of additional content storage.


Equipped with 12 and 13 megapixel rear cameras, the U9 smartphones also boasts a ‘Dual Camera’ function that allows simultaneous use of both front and rear cameras. The devices are also equipped with extended camera functionalities including continuous shot (up to 99 shots), smile and face detection, quick panorama, self timer, BEAUTY mode, anti-shake, autofocus, zero shutter delay, fast burst shot and even HD video recording and video effect.


Ninetology also revealed their newly appointed Product Spokesperson Z-Chen, a Malaysian Mandopop singer who is also fondly known as the R&B Little Prince.  He said, “As a singer and urbanite myself, I can truly appreciate the U9 series.  The U9 smartphones truly understand my needs as an individualist with various interests and a strong desire for freedom.  With the U9 series, there are unlimited possibilities to enrich my lifestyle and illuminate my unique personality, work and music.”


“I feel that I am always ‘united-as-one’ with my U9 smartphone in one seamless human-technology integration,” said Chen. Check out Z-Chen's video below with the Ninetology U9 X1:-
