Emperor Pot

Emperor Pot Teenage Steamboat

At Emperor Pot, their 3 tier cooking machine isn’t all that they are known for – their value for money prices, wide range of meat and seafood, and a fully equipped sauce station has been proven to be worth the long wait!

It’s been barely two weeks since the release of the iPhone X and already the rumour mill is buzzing that Apple will be launching three iPhones in 2018. 

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose research team has been pretty spot on with their predictions so far, Apple will launch “three new iPhone models in 2H18: 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED models and a 6.1-inch TFT-LCD model, all equipped with a full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera (front 3D sensing), as with iPhone X.” And while two of the iPhone models will be targeting a high-end market, the third will be aiming towards the middle and low-end markets with a predicted price tag of USD$649 to $749. Additionally, the latter could sport a lower-resolution screen and feature facial recognition instead of a fingerprint sensor. 

While we’ll have to wait and see if these rumours are true, here’s what the internet has to say:

22 Stylish Cases To Dress Up (And Protect) Your New iPhone X

13 Nov 2017 by Johanna Teo

Protect your pricey iPhone X with hardy yet stylish casings that’ll fit your every demand.

Apple’s most expensive and most fragile phone to date, the recently released iPhone X boasts a nearly bezel-free, gorgeous edge-to-edge glass construction that most reviewers have guaranteed will shatter at the first drop, which is troublesome (and cost inefficient) to say the least. Luckily, there have been plenty of casing options released that’ll both act as a barrier (to whatever life brings) and keep your pricey iPhone X stylishly pristine while at it. Here are 22 casings that have caught our eye.
