  1. Apple decided to knock it out of the park with the new Mac Pro. It's one of the best and the most powerful pieces of hardware that Apple has ever put out. But with a starting price of $6,000, the Mac Pro, needless to say, is a pricey affair. That $6,000 price tag (roughly Rs 4.15 lakhs), by the way, is for the base variant of the Mac Pro. Apple decided to remain tight-lipped when it comes to the price of a maxed-out Mac Pro, which sort of makes it pretty obvious that it's not going to be cheap. Nope, not happening. In fact, the folks over at TheVerge decided to play around the number a bit and came up with an estimated figure. They shopped around for equivalent part that Apple announced during the keynote, and turns out, it's going to cost you a lot of money. Like, a lot. Well, before we tell you how much it'll most likely cost, let's check out how powerful a fully maxed-out Mac Pro really is. Once Apple puts it out on the market for purchase, you can configure a Mac Pro with a 28-core Intel Xeon W processor, to begin with. That's significantly more powerful than the 18-core iMac that they launched last year, which is already a beast of a machine. In addition to that processor, you can configure the Mac Pro with, wait for it, 1.5TB of RAM. No, that is not a typo. You can actually get a Mac Pro with 1.5 Terabytes of RAM. Also, you can get up to 4TB SSD and four AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo GPUs. That is, of course, if you can afford even one. © Apple As you can see, Apple's new Mac Pro is one of the most powerful computers out there on the market right now. The amount of performance you can get out of this machine is something that's almost impossible to comprehend. So, how much is it going to cost? According to TheVerge, a fully maxed out Mac Pro i.e. the top-of-the-line Mac Pro complete with a 28-Core Xeon processor, 1.5TB RAM, and all that good stuff will cost you at least $33,000, which roughly translates to about Rs. 22 lakhs. But wait, we haven't even added GPUs yet, which could easily bump the price up to around an eye-watering $45,000 i.e. roughly around Rs. 32 lakhs. Now, this isn't an iMac Pro we're talking about here, so you have to buy a monitor separately. Lucky for you, Apple also introduced a new 6K display called Pro Display XDR monitor. As the name suggests, it's basically the best monitor has ever created and it's apparently comparable to reference monitors out there that cost upwards of $40,000. © YouTube So, if you add that to the price to make it a fully maxed-out Mac Pro setup with Apple's best display, then you're looking at at least $50,000 which is roughly Rs 35 lakhs. Oh, you know what? Apple is not including the stand for the display inside the box, so please add that as well. That'll cost you an additional $1,000. Go figure! Do make a note that these are just estimates based on the prices of the components that are already out there on the market. We still don't know how much Apple is going to charge you for a fully maxed-out Mac Pro. But looking at Apple's history of pricing, you can expect it to be more than the market standard. And if you're planning to buy one in India, then you'll also have to factor the import duties, which is only going to make it more expensive. That being said, the new Mac Pro's, at least a fully a maxed-out Mac Pro, isn't meant for average everyday users anyway. By the word 'Pro', Apple is targetting the 'true' professionals like cinematographers and filmmakers. We can totally imagine the folks over at some film studio using a fully maxed-out Mac Pro to edit huge chunks of files.
  2. The OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the smartphones being launched on 14th May and it has already managed to score points for one of its features. According to OnePlus, the OP 7 Pro has managed to achieve an A+ Top Tier Display Rating from Display Mate. The company is the leading organisation that evaluates displays on various devices and gives results according to a series of comprehensive in-depth lab tests and measurements. © Twitter OnePlus claims that their latest smartphone scores are exceptionally well when it comes to colour accuracy, contrast accuracy, pixel density and brightness. Users will also have the ability to adjust the colour gamut of the display and the temperature for ease of viewing. The OnePlus Pro also got a certification of 'Safety for Eyes' from VDE Testing and Certification Institute. The smartphone is said to filter out harmful blue lights better than other displays and the new adjustable display features are said to aid in eye protection further. The launch event for the OnePlus 7 series is scheduled to take place on 14th May and will be held in three cities i.e. New York, London and Bangalore and will start at 8:15 PM IST. According to rumours, the OnePlus 7 Pro is going to have a QHD+ 90 Hz AMOLED display and will be as expensive as flagship devices. © Twitter The OnePlus 7 is being touted as the company's biggest launch ever and is being held in the Bangalore. Being the home-ground for the company, we can expect the launch to be larger than any other OnePlus launch we've ever seen from the company. OnePlus was recently included in the top five premium brands list by Counterpoint Research and we can expect to see some sort of celebration at the event. Being the biggest event by OnePlus, the company is also selling launch event voucher for fans that will go on sale on 25th April at 10:00 AM. You can buy the tickets for the Indian launch event at OnePlus.in (www.OnePlus.in). The company has given some hints about the launch in their official video which went live with the launch date announcement. You can have a look at the video below for your reference:
  3. Ever since his arrival at the Emirates stadium, Mesut Ozil has proved to be a vital cog in the Arsenal setup. A versatile midfielder, Ozil thrives in advanced playmaking roles - as a winger on either flank or as an attacking midfielder through the centre. His creative ability and offensive prowess have also earned him the tag of 'assist-king' in the world of football. While he might have struggled to get adequate starts under new manager Unai Emery, there is little doubt over his popularity as a football icon. Cherished by football fans across the globe, Ozil seems to have found a new fanbase in India.

  4. The Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus are two solid smartphones that have incredible displays. Samsung's new flagship sports its 'Infinity-O' display and it has finally been tested by the experts at DisplayMate. The Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus have 6.1 and 6.4-inch AMOLED screens respectively and support HDR10+ content for users who like to consume videos. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla OLED displays have come a long way in terms of advancement and are now the staple display choice for premium flagship phones. Initially, it had a weird start due to technical issues such as pixel layout problems and colour representation, however, Samsung has perfected the technology to make it the number AMOLED manufacturer in the world. Hence, it's natural that Samsung would use their best display on its latest device. Galaxy S10/S10 Plus has earned the highest grade from DisplayMate i.e. an A+. The experts go on to say that the Galaxy S10's display "matches or sets over a dozen new smartphone display performance records", including a "high brightness mode that is up to 17% brighter (1,215 nits) than the Galaxy S9.” © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla DisplayMate's reviewer Dr Raymond M. Soneira called Samsung's OLED "the most colour accurate display we have ever measured”. He goes on to explain that the device was able to produce lifelike colours. The smartphone performed well even in the colour accuracy department as he describes it as "visually indistinguishable from perfect, and almost certainly considerably better than your existing smartphone, living room HDTV, tablet, laptop, and computer monitor.” © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla DisplayMate also details that the Galaxy S10 has also improved upon other salient features such as better viewing angles, display power efficiency and blue light spectrum. DisplayMate is considered the world's leading authority on testing screen quality and you can read the entire report here. The website may look like something straight from the 90s, however, be rest assured that DisplayMate is a trusted source for everything related to screens.

  5. Sony's smartphone business has not seen any great traction in the recent past however that will now change with the Xperia 1. The Japanese company announced the Xperia 1 at MWC and it as has a very tall 21:9 display. It's Sony's new flagship smartphone and is the world's first smartphone with 4K resolution. (c) Sony Sony plans to breathe new life into its smartphone lineup by launching a smartphone with a very unique feature. The 4K resolution is probably aimed at users who like to watch a lot of video content on streaming apps such as Netflix and Amazon Prime. The Sony Xperia 1 has a 6.5” display which Sony calls “CinemaWide” as it combines 1-style image processing, as seen on Bravia TVs with the colour calibration of Sony's professional master monitors. The display also supports HDR content and as Dolby Atmos sound for the complete cinematic experience. The Sony Xperia 1 has stereo speakers at the bottom and in the earpiece. The screen on the Sony Xperia 1 is so tall that it is 1 full inch taller than the iPhone XS Max. (c) SlashLeaks Since the display is so tall, Sony is already emphasising on features such as using the extra real estate for using multiple apps at once (two apps at once). The tall screen is also capable of showing more information on the screen, especially when you browse the internet, read texts or emails. (c) Sony Other specifications for the Xperia 1 include a triple camera set up at the back where one is a 26mm wide lens (with OIS), a 52mm telephoto lens (also with OIS), and a 16mm superwide lens. The Sony Xperia 1 is also powered by Qualcomm's latest chipset i.e. Snapdragon 855. It has 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage and is water resistant. The fingerprint sensor on the Xperia 1 is on the side of the smartphone. For a 4K display, Sony is offering a 3,300 mAh battery with USB Power Delivery 3.0 support. Sony is targeting to launch the Xperia 1 by Spring and will be available in Black, Grey, White, or Purple.
  6. Residents of many parts of India are aware of the hazardous smog we live in. Delhi and Mumbai have repeatedly crossed extremely hazardous levels of air pollution and we've done nothing to curb this. In fact, a majority of the people don't realise how unhealthy the air around us is. When was the last time you looked up and got awed by a crystal clear blue sky? © Reuters In the last decade, mobile phones have evolved from machines that can make a call to portable swiss knives that can do everything. One smartphone today is capable of replacing a camera, MP3 player, television, radio, and even a PC. We've slowly managed to add complex measuring instruments like a gyroscope, accelerometer, barometer, and proximity sensor in them as well. Now, according to a patent filing by Apple, they are considering adding a poison sensor that would be capable of detecting carbon monoxide (CO) and other harmful chemicals. Unfortunately, breathing unhealthy air has become an inevitable part of daily life for many of us. Microscopic particles too small for the eye to see are released into the air from cars, trains, power plants, factories and other sources. © Via Patently Apple CO is a poisonous gas that kills many people every year. Being colourless and odourless, it is impossible to detect by humans. If Apple can actually materialize such a sensor, it'll be a vital life-saving tool. Having a miniature gas sensor built into an iPhone or Apple Watch will be able to notify a user that they could possibly be in a dangerous environment at home, at work or in the public. The process of making this feasible includes producing robust miniature gas sensors with features like improved stability, enhanced poisoning resistance, and reduced signal interference. © Via Patently Apple In terms of a long-term solution, the sensors can become part of a larger system that monitors environmental and health hazards and will be a core part of IoT (Internet of Things). Apple Watch has already saved numerous lives thanks to improper heart rate detection, thus predicting diseases and long term health issues. Even the new "trip" function onboard the Series 4 has saved many who couldn't communicate due to an accident. Source: Patently Apple
  7. Smartphones having an in-screen fingerprint scanner or fingerprint-on-display technology (FoD) is not a distant idea anymore. It's already made its way on smartphones like the OnePlus 6T, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Vivo Nex and a bunch of other smartphones. Rumours suggest that even the next Samsung flagship smartphone the Galaxy S10 is expected to use the same technology. However, the one drawback everyone faces is the accuracy of this technology. Having said that, it's just the beginning of this technology that will get more advancements, or have we already? © Weibo Xiaomi's upcoming smartphone might be equipped with an in-display sensor that is not only accurate but is faster than what we've already seen until now. Current in-display fingerprint sensors are not only less accurate but are also slower. It requires the user to place the finger on a specified location for a few seconds. Even while enrolling a new fingerprint, it requires multiple annoying presses in order for it to work. However, it seems like Xiaomi has a solution to this conundrum as the company's co-founder and president Lin Bin showed off the new FoD technology in a Weibo post. In the video, we can see that enrolling a new fingerprint takes second on a single tap. The other thing we noticed was that the area where you can place your finger to unlock the phone is comparably bigger; in fact, it takes up half the screen. The sensor used in this prototype phone is said to be 50.2 mm x 25mm in size. Not only is this probably the fastest form of FoD technology, but it's also probably the most accurate as well. It seems like this technology is in development and it would be exciting to see a real commercial phone utilising the new FoD sensor by Xiaomi. Nevertheless, we are excited to see if other companies will have a similar solution anytime soon.
  8. There was a time when Public Display of Affection (PDA) was frowned upon and lovers on the streets or at a public place were asked to go 'get a room' instead. But welcome to the growing gene-pool of adventure seekers and love tolerant people around, PDA is very much back in action and everyone wants to be a part of it. PDA officially means showing your affection publicly towards the person you're involved with. Could be your spouse, girlfriend or a date you're on. Snogging their world off, while you're in a crowd definitely qualifies for PDA and up until recently, it wasn't so welcoming in the society. © Twitter What changed though? Our most probable guess is the celebrity couple hangover that influences the general public threefold. Off late, we've been seeing various celebrity couples holding hands, hugging each other or proclaiming their love for one another in public and this trend is becoming more popular by the day. Which makes us wonder, what is actually wrong with displaying a bit of affection before people? It's certainly better than displaying any amount of violence, or public display of arrogance or even contempt for that matter, between couples who're out in public. So, if we love instead of all that negativity, it's always easier to digest. © Pinterest So, just in case you're a brand new couple, or an old one or just out on a date and can't keep your hands off each other or want to try some PDA, maybe you can keep these basic PDA- guidelines in mind! (1) Don't Get All Touchy-Feely If You're With A Third Person If you're hanging out with someone who's third-wheeling you, then maybe you don't have to drive that point home by being all over your girlfriend. Instead, make an effort with the third friend who's come out with a couple and make him or her feel as much at home as you possibly can, by not displaying too much affection in front of them. © Pinterest (2) Avoid PDA In Front Of Kids Little ones watching you going nuts over each other, literally, is hell raising! I mean, I'm sure the kids probably understand what you're up to, but why do you have to put them through the torture of asking their parents why your hand was up her dress? Maybe a peck or a hug works but if you're surrounded by kids, definitely find a safer space for the two of you to do whatever you want to. © Pinterest (3) Not 'Handy' In The Middle Of The Dance floor While I understand the dance floor can be an intimate space to show love for one another, it's also space for people to show off their moves. So, if you're trying to climb on top of each other while dancing and making a show out of it, do it at your own peril and, of course, discretion! © Getty Images (4) Definitely Avoid Straddling Straddling is sitting with one leg on either side and if it's not a motorcycle, you're straddling on a person. But the thing is, public straddling is a bit over-the-top unless, of course, you're at a strip club or behind closed doors. So, if your girlfriend straddles you in public, maybe it's time to make sure to tell her the rules have changed a bit! © Pinterest (5) Don't Cause An Inconvenience Even if you find a decent place to display a copious amount of PDA, make sure it's not causing any form of an inconvenience to people around you. It could be inside a public loo, where you've bolted the door for minutes and are busy making out, or it could be at a place where you're blocking a path and are too busy to realise people are having an issue passing by and are too uncomfortable to tell you to move! Whatever it is, make sure you chose the space effectively and display affection as suited for the place. © Pinterest Yes, PDA can be quite tricky to pull off, mostly because it's a spontaneous decision and not planned. You can get carried away in a moment and carry forth showing a lot of affection towards your lover, but it's up to you to decide how much public display of affection is too much affection, at the end of the day! Trust me, even celebs know their limit and while I know it's very important to show as much love as you can towards someone you're fond of, it's also important to keep things easy going for the rest of the lot, around you!
  9. Samsung is the main supplier of OLED panels that are being used in all high-end iPhones, such as the iPhone X, XS and XS Max. This resulted in a costlier production procedure which shot up the price of the iPhone to Rs 1 Lakh. Samsung is now looking to reduce the cost of OLED panels that are currently being used and hopefully make it thinner and lighter at the same time. © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP As per a report by Korean website ETnews, the new OLED panel from Samsung is called 'Y-Octa' and will have a display with touch integrated within. This basically reduces the thickness of the OLED panel and in turn, makes it lighter too. This type of OLED panels is currently being used by Samsung for the Galaxy Note 9 and S9. The report also adds that at least one of the 2019 iPhones is expected to have the same display tech. © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP Samsung has already approached Apple in the past for using the same type of display in new iPhones. The report by ETnews says, "A senior Samsung Display representative visited Apple in March to propose the supply of touch-integrated OLED panels.” The screen technology in question should be ready in time for next year's iPhone launch, which is expected to take place sometime in September. The report adds that this new screen will have a limited supply initially and this could translate to only premium iPhone models sporting the new lighter and thinner design. As production of the 'Y-Octa' display increases, we could see this display technology trickle down to all iPhone models that use an OLED panel. Source: ETnews
  10. This year, we saw a lot of brands coming up with a sliding design. The addition of moving parts has never been a bright idea for a portable device like a mobile phone, but companies still went ahead and added sliding camera modules to eliminate the notch. The elimination of the notch meant a better screen-to-body ratio, and we gotta say, the automatic pop-up camera did look cool. Vivo was among the first few to come up with a sliding camera phone, and the NEX was one of them. Now, the brand is back with the successor of the phone, and the idea of a sliding camera module has been completely eliminated. We expected the successor to be called NEX 2 but instead, it has been dubbed the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition. © Vivo Now, Vivo wants to try something new and has added a huge display on the back of the phone a well. While we've seen a similar concept onboard the Russian Yotaphone, the NEX stands apart thanks to its 3D TOF stereo camera. The front has a 6.39-inch bezel-less display while the rear has a 5.49-inch screen and both have an AMOLED panel and Full HD resolution. As expected of a flagship device, the Vivo NEX Dual is powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset and will be available in 10GB of RAM coupled with 128GB of non-expandable storage. © YouTube/Engadget The back has some space on the top where the camera module, consisting of a 12-megapixel primary sensor backed with a 2-megapixel secondary lens, is located. A "Lunar Ring" on the back of the device is functional as well and acts as a soft flash for low-light selfie shots. The ring also changes colour to signify app notifications. Another unique addition to the phone is a time of flight (TOF) 3D module. It maps objects by firing pulses of light and then measuring the time taken for that light to return, which will allow for accurately modeling your face for more secure facial recognition, as well as for personalized beautification. © Vivo The phone runs on Funtouch OS 4.5 that's based on the latest Android 9 Pie. The phone is also equipped with an in-display fingerprint reader and the phone is expected to go on sale in various regions soon. In China, it is priced at CNY 4,998 (Rs 52,000).
  11. Samsung has been working on flexible display technology for years and has been teasing a flexible phone for quite some time. The company has now confirmed that a foldable display laptop is being developed, at the launch event of Samsung Notebook Flash. Lee Min-cheol, Samsung's vice president of marketing for PCs, said yesterday that the company is developing this new form factor for laptops. He added that the company is working with third-party manufacturers — most probably LG — to use large flexible AMOLED displays for its future laptops. © YouTube With the new foldable laptop design, Samsung could really bring some innovation to the saturated laptop industry. Samsung is collaborating with display makers to develop laptops with foldable displays, that will not just simply fold in and out, but create new value and user experience, amid the changing market trends for laptops On the other hand, Samsung is also gearing up to launch a foldable mobile phone. In August, Samsung again stressed that it's working on making foldable phones mass production ready and that it intends to be the first company to launch a foldable phone. © YouTube Even Lenovo and Microsoft are rumoured to be working on laptops with a flexible display. While this would be useful in many cases, we'll just have to wait and watch how companies are able to make full use of a folding display. "We are focused on bringing innovations favoured by consumers, rather than just becoming the world's first. In terms of the foldable phone, however, we do not want to miss the first spot," said DJ Koh, president of Samsung's mobile division. © Reuters Samsung had announced that it is aiming to have a foldable phone — the Galaxy X, unofficially, depending on the rumour — out next year, and has recently been awarded a number of patents towards that end. The Samsung prototype, which bears the internal code name "Winner," features a screen that measures about 7-inches diagonally, according to people in the supply chain. "We want to hear that Samsung Electronics made a quality product when we showcase a foldable phone on the market," Koh said, claiming the release is getting closer. Source: PocketNow
  12. Last week, Google launched the Pixel 3 and 3 XL and everyone has been excited about it. The Pixel 2 was an amazing device, but was in the news for all the wrong reasons at its launch due to issues with its display panel. With the Pixel 3, we definitely hope that Google has improvised the panel and has made sure that there will no longer be any shortcomings. To see how much Google has improved the display, DisplayMate has run some measures and standards to tell us how the Pixel 3 XL display stacks up against the competition. DisplayMate has shared its findings and has given the Pixel 3 XL an A+ rating, the highest possible. Usually, it is Samsung's flagship phones that get the highest possible rating. © BGR The study is extremely in-depth and hence we've covered the most important points. The new Pixel 3 XL comes with three colour modes: Natural Mode, Boosted Mode, and Adaptive Mode. According to DisplayMate, "Each Pixel 3 XL OLED display is individually calibrated at the factory. Since the Pixel 3 XL supports two Standard Color Gamuts it performs Accurate Calibrated Color Management so the colours appear correctly and accurately based on the on-screen image content." In terms of viewing angles, a 30 per cent angle will decrease brightness on a smartphone display by up to per cent. On the Pixel 3 XL, it down to just 28 per cent while the iPhone XS Max comes in at 25 per cent and the Note9 at 27 per cent. © Digital Trends The Pixel 3 XL display has a maximum brightness of 424 nits, while the Note9 is able to produce 700+ nits of peak brightness. But, the Pixel 3 XL has the lowest screen reflectance at just 4.3 per cent, the lowest DisplayMate has ever measured on a smartphone. The report says, Google has improved the display on multiple quality parameters, including 'Absolute Picture Quality' and 'Absolute Color Accuracy'. This has been achieved by implementing 'Precision Factory Display Calibration', While nobody is saying the Pixel 3 lineup has THE best display right now, it sure is at par with the competition. As far as having a speciality is concerned, the series already owns the camera department. Source: DisplayMate
  13. Now that Apple has made the switch to OLED screens on their flagship devices, Samsung and Apple compete for the top spot when it comes to screen quality. Earlier, Apple would only use LCD screens for their devices and rule their category while Samsung would rule the OLED category. Since the iPhone X, Apple and Samsung have been battling it out for the DisplayMate title of the best smartphone display. © Reuters The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have defeated the Galaxy Note 9 for the DisplayMate throne a month after it was awarded to Samsung. Apple's iPhones and Samsung's Galaxy devices compete for the top spot while other OEMs have managed to also get the top spot. Having said that, in recent years, the top spot has only been contested by Samsung and Apple. The iPhone XS Max's screen has made a major improvement over Apple's first OLED device i.e. the iPhone X. DisplayMate grades a smartphones colour accuracy and classified the iPhone XS Max as “Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect” and gave it a score of 0.8 JNCD (Just Noticeable Color Differences). It was given using the DCI-P3 colour gamut that is used for 4K UHD TVs. The iPhone XS Max also has one of the lowest reflectance scores at 4.7%. © Apple When compared to the Galaxy Note 9, the devices scored 0.5 JNCD colour accuracy. Even the brightness on the iPhone XS Max was higher as it scored 725 nits on the home screen. The Galaxy Note 9 scored only 710 nits under special circumstances and settings. Having said that, the Galaxy Note 9 still has a better score when it comes to screen reflectance and has a score of 4.4%.
  14. Petrol and diesel prices have steadily increased in the country this year and relief is far out of sight. A litre of petrol in Mumbai now costs Rs 89.29 while the same in Delhi costs Rs 81.91. Even diesel has reached its all-time high in almost all major cities. The steady rise in price is attributed to increasing global crude oil rates, sanctions against Iran, and the government's decision to not cut down on tax collection. Many analysts have been suggesting that the rates shall continue to rise and could even cross the Rs 100 milestone. © Reuters While we would ideally expect the government to be worried about rising antagonism from the public and opposition, they are now facing an all-new challenge. According to rumours and reports, fuel dispensing machines do not support three-digit pricing in India. It's yet unknown whether all machines are affected, or it's just a portion of them that cannot be calibrated. The situation came to light when High Octane Petrol crossed the Rs 100 mark and was being sold at Rs 100.33. The display machines showed only Rs 0.33 rate per litre, and these calculations are fed into the system on regular basis by the operators. If the system cannot generate a final sum based on the ongoing rates, operators will have to manually calculate the final price, and this process becomes very tedious. © MensXP The number of customers for High Octane Petrol is very limited, hence the manual process is feasible right now. But if the rates of normal 87-88 octane petrol cross 100, manual calculations on a such a wide scale are impossible. Also, all petrol pumps in India are automated, meaning value can be changed only from a central server, and the increased pricing has resulted in the closing down of some pumps till necessary arrangements can be made. © Reuters In case the rates continue to rise for mainstream fuels, operators and vendors will be the first ones to be hit. Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) sells Power 99 (octane rating of 99), it is priced Rs 20 over the price of normal fuel. Even Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) has a more mainstream higher octane fuel called Speed that currently retails for Rs 91.96 in Mumbai. Source: DriveSpark
  15. The September 12 Apple event is just around the corner and the internet is filled with numerous leaks and reports. This time, Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones, one of them will be the 'iPhone XC'. This time, the company is trying to target three iPhones, each at a different price segment. SlashLeaks has shared images of the reported iPhone XC and it is expected to launch in Red, Blue, White, and Rose Gold. The blue colour will be making a comeback straight after 2103's iPhone 5C. The other two devices, the iPhone XS and XS Max are expected to launch in the usual three colours. © SlashLeaks Coming back to the iPhone XC, the device shall sport a 6.1-inch LCD display, a huge jump from the iPhone 8' 4.7-inch and iPhone 8 Plus' 5.5-inches. In the last few years, we've seen a majority of the Android devices sport a 5.0-inch or larger panel, and this has pretty much become a standard for flagships now. The most interesting thing about the iPhone XC though is the support for two SIM cards (or dual SIM as we generally call it). Adding to that, it is expected to support dual 4G support, meaning you can use two 4G connections simultaneously. This is a very basic functionality that has become pretty common in the Android world, finally, iPhone users too will have it. iPhone Xc (6.1” LCD) clones/dummy models in new colors. pic.twitter.com/RybRhE7XSO — Ben Geskin (@VenyaGeskin1) September 6, 2018 Analyst Ming-Ching Kuo, known for pretty accurate predictions regarding Apple devices, had even predicted that the bigger iPhone XS Max will come with dual-SIM support too. The phones will be made available in single-SIM and dual-SIM variants, depending on market and region. © SlashLeaks The iPhone XC is being termed the 'cheaper' iPhone variant right now, though, in the Apple ecosystem, cheap isn't really that cheap. To cut corners, the phone is expected to have an aluminium build, instead of steel. On the bright side, all the three models are expected to sport a notch along with Apple's Face ID authentication system. A quick recap of what we know so far, the trio is sure to run on Apple's latest A12 processor. The iPhone XC is alleged to have a 6.1-inch LCD panel, the iPhone XS is expected to have a 5.8-inch OLED panel, and lastly, the XS Max may have a 6.5-inch OLED panel. Source: Ben Geskin
  16. How many times have you walked to your movie hall and stopped midway to check out a movie poster? I do that all the time and I love everything about them. The graphics, the text and of course, the little ambiguous giveaways of the movie mentioned. Posters are usually graphic pieces of art, which are bold and daring in nature. A good movie poster has the artist's work immersed deep in it and the creative license does demand a lot of credit. Horror movie posters have some extra creativity to make sure the audience quivers with the graphic images on them. Some of them are so graphic, that you'd not want to look at it again! © Tristar Pictures Right now, the content on most horror movie posters has been dialled down a notch, but back in the day, some posters were so graphic, that parents and religious groups protested to have them taken down, for the sake of not terrorising the kids. Here's a list of banned horror movie posters, and each and every one of them makes for an interesting piece of history, keeping its shock value in mind: Saw II (2005) 'Saw II' had an image of two severed fingers which the Motion Pictures Association of America (MPAA) was not too happy about. The image was eventually rectified by replacing the version of the severed fingers with longer fingers, so they wouldn't seem severed on the poster. Old Poster: © Lionsgate Films New Poster: © Lionsgate Films The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007) Okay, I am not sure why this poster was banned by the MPAA. The poster shows an entity dragging a body bag with a hand coming out of it, which is barely that scary! All they did later was replace the hand with a pair of legs! How is that any different? Old Poster: © Fox Atomic New Poster: © Fox Atomic Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) A remarkable poster to mark the end of the franchise and the death of Jason Voorhees, 'Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter' had quite a spine-chilling graphic on it. The iconic image of a knife going through the hockey mask defined the ending well but unfortunately, the poster was considered to be too extreme and the image was replaced with the hockey mask, with no knife at all. Old Poster: © Paramount Pictures New Poster: © Paramount Pictures Teeth (2008) Remember the movie? If you haven't seen it or heard of it, it's time. Although the concept is quite warped. It's about a girl who's sworn to chastity but she falls in love with a boy and when they get around to doing it, she discovers she's a living example of the vagina dentata myth (a vagina with sharp teeth). She uses that to her advantage and if anyone tries to act fresh with her, she dismantles his member through her vaginal teeth! Okay, I just gave the plot away but it's absolutely hilarious in the scariest way possible. The poster is a visual representation of the movie in a very funny, semi-cartoonish way and although the x-ray poster was quite innovative, it was not approved and had to be changed to something a little less uncomfortable. Yeah, a girl in the bathtub, naked, with her legs apart. Great job on making it a little less uncomfortable, guys. Old Poster: © Roadside Attractions New Poster: © Roadside Attractions Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) The poster was the 8th part of this franchise and was actually quite harmless and really simple too, depicting fairly well what the movie was about. It had Jason slashing his way through the classic 'I heart NYC' logo and that was the main problem. The New York Tourism Bureau was not happy with the way the logo was shown and since they had the copyright on it, they decided to not give the original poster the approval. It was later changed to Jason's mask towering over New York's skyline and that was an absolute awesome poster too. Old Poster: © Paramount Pictures New Poster: © Paramount Pictures Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984) Silent Night, Deadly Night' was one of the most controversial horror movies to ever be made in the 80s and all the parents were dead against it. I mean, I don't blame them if Santa's going around town killing kids in the movie! The movie luckily survived a ban but the poster had to be changed. The original one had an evil man dressed like Santa holding an axe. Even though it was an animated poster, it was still taken down due to protests against it. It was later changed to 'Santa's' hand brandishing an axe, while he's making his way through the chimney *shudders*. Another one came out later which had a creepy looking reindeer with a red-light backdrop. I don't see the difference really. Isn't that Rudolph? Old Poster: © TriStar Pictures New Poster: © TriStar Pictures Final Destination: 5 (2011) The poster had a skull with knives coming out of it. Completely scary I agree, and that's why it was pulled off when the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) received about 13 complaints from parents, saying their children were facing distress after viewing the poster at a local underground subway in London. It was later changed to the characters in the movie standing on a collapsing bridge. Old Poster: © Warner Bros. Pictures New Poster: © Warner Bros. Pictures
  17. Huawei's sub-brand Honor has been expanding its portfolio in India this year and has managed to fill up almost every segment with one of its product. Since the Honor 9 Lite, the brand has established a distinctive design language consisting of a glass backing that comes with multiple layers of nano-coating to achieve a mirror-like effect. The phone consists completely of glass and metal and also sports 2.5D curved glass on the front.

On the rear, it sports dual 13+2-megapixel image sensors which are coupled with AI-powered features like beautification and automatic scene recognition. On the front is a 16-megapixel camera that also supports AI-enabled improvements.
