1. Upgrade your mobile experience

The latest smartphone innovations

In 2024, smartphones will be faster and even more powerful, intuitive and integrated into our daily lives. Smartphone cameras, for instance, now rival traditional point-and-shoots with features like high megapixel counts, larger image sensors, optical zoom lenses and enhanced low-light performance. Capture stunning portraits, vibrant landscapes and cinema-quality video on the go.

Explore the latest smartphone models and the best deals with M1. Whether it’s the latest iPhone 15 Pro or Samsung’s newest foldable phones like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 that offer tablet-sized screens that fold in half to fit in your pocket.

H3 5G connectivity

By 31 July 2024, Singapore will shut down its 3G services to make way for 5G. This isn't just a step up; it's a giant leap. 5G brings with it the promise of blisteringly fast data speeds, expansive bandwidth, and minimal latency, eclipsing the capabilities of 4G LTE. Imagine downloading large files in a flash, streaming 4G videos without a hiccup, diving into immersive virtual reality experiences, or enjoying graphics-heavy mobile games without a lag. That's the power of 5G.

With M1’s True 5G network, you can upgrade to 5G connectivity. Simply activate True 5G on your plan via the My M1+ App and ensure you have a 5G compatible phone and you’re a step closer towards future-proofing your tech. Explore the latest 5G phones in the market with M1.

2. AI-powered home assistants

Smart speakers with built-in AI assistants like Alexa or Google Assistant have evolved from mere voice-responding devices to becoming central command systems of our homes. Need to dim the lights? Just say the word. Curious about the weather or the latest news? Ask away. Fancy some music or an audiobook to unwind? Your wish is their command. But here's the real kicker: these AI powerhouses are continually learning and adapting, not just to our commands but to our emotions as well.

M1 has teamed up with Amazon Web Services to introduce Maxine, a VoiceBot that's redefining customer service. Maxine, crafted using AWS's cloud contact centre tech, understands words and responds like a human. Thanks to M1's digital voice communication tech, Maxine offers customers a more natural, conversation-like experience, ditching old-school menu interfaces.

3. Boost your health and well-being with wearable tech

Ready to give your health and fitness journey a boost? Invest in a fitness tracker or smartwatch. These wearable devices can monitor your daily activity, sleep, heart rate and more. Many sync with your phone to provide an overview of your health and habits. Look for options with long battery life, comfortable fit and useful features like activity tracking, sleep monitoring and smartphone notifications.

4. Elevate your home with smart technology

Want to make your life more convenient and your home smarter in 2024? Consider upgrading to some connected tech devices. Think smart speakers, smart displays, and smart bulbs. These smart home solutions can automate and streamline your daily routines.

A smart speaker like the Echo or Google Nest Hub uses voice commands to control smart home devices, play music, set timers and alarms, check the weather and more over the home wifi network. Smart displays add a touchscreen to show visual information. Smart plugs and bulbs can be controlled with an app or smart speaker to turn lights and appliances on and off remotely or on a schedule.

With the right smart home tech, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Sign up for an M1 Fibre / wifi Broadband plan and start connecting to your smart home solutions to get started.
