  1. OnePlus 7 is right around the corner and new details keep popping up on the internet before its eventual launch sometime next month. In order to compete, OnePlus has already added some unique features according to previous leaks but an unexpected feature just got discovered. A new leak of a prototype shows that the OnePlus 7 will use the Pro moniker and will also be borrowing features we've seen on previous Samsung smartphones. © Weibo The leak also confirmed a few features on the upcoming OnePlus 7 Pro as it will be using a curved edge screen, seen before on Samsung flagship smartphones. The smartphone is said to have a notch-less display which could only mean that it will have a pop-up selfie camera. The OnePlus 7 Pro is said to have a 6.67-inch Super Optic Display; a made-up marketing term for the curved edge display. The smartphone is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and will also have an X50 modem for 5G connectivity. © Twitter The OnePlus 7 Pro is also expected to have 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage if this leak turns out to be true. Previous reports have suggested that the smartphone will have a triple camera setup at the back and a sliding or pop-up selfie camera. It is also possible that the selfie camera may be embedded into the bezels. © Twitter A regular OnePlus 7 without the X50 model will also be offered with different configurations for customers who just want a traditional OnePlus device. We could expect the 5G version of the smartphone to be priced considerably more than the regular OnePlus 7 smartphones. We will know more about the OP7 closer to the launch. Source: TechRadar
  2. OnePlus flagship phone, the OnePlus 6T, is a powerful smartphone. It's one of the most affordable flagship phones you can buy right now, and it can handle almost everything you throw at it. If you don't believe us, then wait till you see what a Dutch hacker name Bas Timmer did. Timmer, who's recently ported Windows on Arm (WoA) on the OnePlus 6T, posted a video on Twitter showing the PC version of 'Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' running on the OnePlus 6T. Yes, you heard it right. The video shows a OnePlus 6T smartphone running the full Windows version of the game. The hacker made it a point to clarify that he used Windows on Arm to make it happen. Here, see the video for yourself - Watch out for the most 'why would you even think of doing this' crossover gameplay video combining WoA with a modification for a formerly-popular FPS series, running live in XTA + Adreno drivers. pic.twitter.com/zBR6FcqPQl — NTAuthority (@NTAuthority) April 8, 2019 As you can see, the video shows Timmer starting the game and entering the popular Rust level. Of course, the game isn't running as smooth as it would on a proper gaming rig, but it seems to be holding up pretty darn good. In fact, the game appears to be running at over 30 FPS, although he didn't really show a proper session of gameplay. © Call Of Duty That being said, the fact that he was able to get the game even running is incredibly cool. Remember, 'Modern Warfare 2' is quite a demanding title, and being able to run on OnePlus 6T shows exactly how powerful the phone really is. Timmer will apparently be posting more info about this, and we can't wait to learn how he did it, and play it ourselves.
  3. It's been long rumoured that Google is expected to launch cheaper versions of the Pixel 3 and the name of the new smartphone may have accidentally been revealed by the search engine giant. These smartphones have been referred to as Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite. However, there are new indications that these phones will be called Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. © 9t05Google The listing on the Google Play Store confirmed that the smaller Pixel 3a will have a 5.6-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2220 pixels. The larger XL variant is said to have a 6-inch display and have a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. In terms of RAM configuration, both smartphones are said to have 4GB of RAM. Other specs include Android 9 Pie, Snapdragon 670,12-megapixel rear camera, and 3,000 mAh battery. Earlier last week, 9to5Google noticed that Google accidentally made the page for the two rumoured phones live on the Google Store. This is indicative that the Pixel 3a may launch very soon as Google is gearing up for the impending launch. The two phones were bestowed the code name “sargo” and “bonito” respectively and both names were references in the first Android Q beta release. © Twitter Are excited about a cheaper Pixel smartphone? Do you think it will take advantage of Google's computational photography? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. Source: XDA Developers, 9to5Google
  4. This year, Samsung debuted a new device alongside the highly anticipated Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus called the Galaxy S10e. It's the cheapest phone of Samsung's flagship lineup this year, yet it doesn't skimp out on features. In fact, we think some Galaxy S10e features make it better than the other two flagship phones in the lineup, and here are 4 of those awesome features - 1. The Size © YouTube The Samsung Galaxy S10e is, without a doubt, one of the most compact phones to come out this year so far. Having used a lot of 'big' phones this year, we really had a great time using the Galaxy S10e. The overall footprint of the phone is so small that you can comfortably hold it in your hands. The Galaxy S10e measures just 69.9mm in height, making it short and handy phone. Also, the phone weighs just 150 grams, which makes it very light too. It's comparable to the likes of some other compact phone which we've seen in the past like the Pixel 2. 2. Infinity-O Display © YouTube The Galaxy S10e has a 5.8-inch AMOLED display on the front with a punch-hole design that houses the front-facing camera. Despite being a small-sized phone, the display looks amazing. Of course, it's a Samsung panel, so it's simply great for content consumption, be it playing games, watching videos, etc. Also, the 5.8-inch feels like the perfect size for a phone. It's neither too small nor annoying big like some other phones that are out there in the market. 3. Dual-Cameras © YouTube Yes, the Galaxy S10e lacks the triple camera setup, which both the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus have, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the S10e cameras are bad. In fact, the 12MP standard lens and the 16MP ultrawide lens are really what you need for any given scenario. These are the same sensors that you'll find on the Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus, and they work exceptionally well. Here's a sample image which we shot from the phone during our testing - 4. Wireless Charging With Powershare © YouTube Wireless charging isn't exactly a new or exciting feature nowadays, but we're glad that Samsung added that to the Galaxy S10e as well. Heck, the phone even has Samsung's new Reverse Wireless PowerShare feature, with which you can charge another phone or any other Qi-compatible accessory. How cool is that? Well, that wraps up this short and simple list of Galaxy S10e features that we love the most. These are some of the features which, according to us, makes the Galaxy S10e a stellar phone despite being the most affordable of the bunch.
  5. You don't necessarily need to have deep pockets to buy a good flagship phone in 2019. There are some amazing options out there from the likes of OnePlus, Honor, etc. Heck, even Apple proved that with the iPhone XR last year, that offered almost all flagship features at a reasonable price. Now this year, it's Samsung who's trying to do the same with its Galaxy S10e. Yes, it's a phone for those who envy all the flagship features of the Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus but aren't willing to shell out big bucks. Well, if you are that person, then I am here to tell you that it's a great idea. I say that because I've spent the better part of the last few weeks using the Galaxy S10e as my daily driver, and I absolutely love it. In fact, I think this is the best Galaxy model for most people who're looking to buy one of the newer Galaxy S10 phones. Let me tell you why: Design & Display Of course, the first thing that I am going to talk about is the size of this phone. The Galaxy S10e is a small and compact phone. It's very much a one-handed device, and my palm completely wraps around it. It's one of those cute little phones that are really hard to find these days. Everyone who I handed over this phone to, was surprised by how tiny and compact it is. Just perfect! © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla From the power button/ fingerprint scanner on the right-hand side of the phone to the volume rockers and the Bixby button on the left, I was easily able to reach all of them without any issues. Trust me, that's not something I can say for all the phones in 2019. And before I proceed, let me acknowledge the fact that this phone has a great fingerprint scanner. Easy to reach and amazingly fast. I'd also like to point out that the Galaxy S10e, because of the smaller form factor, makes it look and feel different from the bunch. That, however, isn't necessarily a bad thing. I still love the Galaxy S10e. It's a premium looking device with glass on both front and back with an aluminium frame. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla On to the front, the Galaxy S10e has a 5.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. It doesn't have WQHD+ screen resolution unlike the other two variants, but you won't really notice it. The screen looks sharp, plus it's HDR10+ certified, so it has great colour accuracy which makes it great for content consumption. And thanks to its bezel-less design, the Galaxy S10e is even smaller than the Pixel 3, which has a 5.5-inch display in comparison. Samsung managed to pull off the bezel-less design by punching a hole in the display for the front-facing camera. I honestly still find it a little distracting, but there's not a lot that you can do to avoid it besides using some clever wallpapers to hide from the home screen as I did. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla The hole-punch display or the Infinity-O display, as Samsung likes to call it, didn't really bother me that much. It's still an awesome display to consume content, be it gaming or watching Netflix, etc. If you hate it though, then sadly you'll either have to stick to a phone with a display notch or a pop-up camera module like the Vivo V15 Pro. Overall, I'd say the Galaxy S10e scores full marks in the design and display department. It looks and feels like a premium Galaxy flagship in every way, only smaller. Its pocketable size in an era of phones with massive footprints is a breath of fresh air, and I am sure you'll love it. Performance The Samsung Galaxy S10e is armed with Samsung's new Exynos 9820 along with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, which you can expand via a microSD card upto 512GB. Now, in case you're a fan of benchmarks, then let me get that out of the way before I talk about my day-to-day experience with the phone. I ran the Galaxy S10e through Geekbench 4, AnTuTu, and 3DMark, and here's how it performed - © MensXP In Geekbench, the Galaxy S10e scored a single-core score of 4,496 and a multi-core score of 10,129. It scored 322,973 in Antutu, finally scored 4,309 in 3DMark's Sling Shot Extreme test. These results, I'd say are on par with other flagship phones on the market. And that also translates to great real-world performance as well. But that's not really a surprise, is it? I am yet to have noticed a single stutter or a hint of lag. I like to give credits where it's due, so I'd like to point out that the Samsung's new OneUI is in-part responsible for that. The UI is nice and clean, and I am really happy with how far Samsung has managed to come from the old Touchwiz interface. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Even with 6GB of RAM, you'll be getting the full flagship power. I also played games like PUBG and Asphat 9, and the phone was able to run even the most demanding titles without breaking a sweat. So overall, it is safe to say that the Galaxy S10e doesn't stray far from the regular S10 or the S10 Plus's performance benchmark. You'll essentially get the same performance in, you know, a smaller package. Since we're talking about the hardware, I think it's a good time to point out the Galaxy S10e has a 3.5mm headphone and an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. Oh, and the speakers? Well, they're just as good as the ones you'll find on the standard Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus. Biometrics As I mentioned previously in this review, the Galaxy S10e has a traditional scanner on the side, instead of an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Am I complaining about it? Absolutely not. In fact, I am glad that I didn't have to put up with a slower and a comparatively less accurate scanner. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Also, the side-mounted fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S10e is located in a perfect spot, in my opinion. It's the spot where my thumb naturally rests on the phone, making it very quick and easy to scan or even pull down my notification shade. And did I tell you that it's really fast? In case you're not a fan of a physical fingerprint scanner for some reason, then you can choose to use Samsung's face unlock to get into the phone. It's obviously not as reliable or secure, but it gets the job done too. Camera Oh yes, the cameras! Unlike the Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus, the S10e only has two rear-facing cameras. There's a 12-megapixel wide angle camera and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera for times when you want to fit more of everything into an image. It lacks the telephoto camera, but frankly, it's not something you should worry about too much. Simply put, the cameras on the S10e are fantastic. If I am being completely honest, I kinda missed shooting pictures with a Samsung phone, and it was great having it around during my testing period. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla As you can see, all the images shot from the Galaxy S10e have plenty of detail. The photos, as usual, look nice and vivid. Samsung's image processing is also playing a huge role here to make the flowers and monuments looks a tad bit better on screen. I couldn't compare the S10e's cameras with that of the Galaxy S10 or S10 Plus, but I am sure there's not a big difference in terms of the quality. I also had a great time testing the phone's ultra-wide camera too. This ultra-wide camera, in case you're wondering, captures a 123-degree field of view, with which you can fit in more people or literally mimic what you see in front of you in the real world. The ultra-wide shots are taken with the 16-megapixel sensor, so you'll have a lot of details to play around. The front-facing camera takes great selfies too. It only has a single 10-megapixel sensor on the front, but you can use the software to fit in a few more people in the shot. The shooting modes are more less similar to what you get with the standard Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus. There's a 'Live Focus' mode which works really well. Then there are some other interesting modes like Instagram, with which you can post the image straight to Instagram as a post or a story. Battery Life Now that I've talked about everything that's good with the phone, let me address my only real concern here: the battery life. Samsung has tucked in a 3,100 mAh battery, and all things considered, it's a little disappointing. Don't get me wrong, you'll still be able to get through a full day with moderate usage, but it's not a heavy hitter. © MensXP I'll admit, I tend to push my phones pretty hard, so I wasn't really surprised with the battery life here. During my testing, I used the phone to do all my basic tasks like playing games, using 4G LTE to do some web-browsing, mindless Instagram scrolling, watching movies, shows on Netflix, among other things. I was able to get around 4 to 4 and a half hours of screen on time, and I found myself reaching for the charger every single night. In addition to the fast wireless charging support, the Galaxy S10e also supports Samsung's new Wireless PowerShare feature, with which you can charge other wireless charging-compatible devices by placing them on the back of the device. I feel like it's a cool party trick that can come handy at times when you need to charge smaller devices like your earbuds, etc. The Final Say © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla So, should you drop your money on the Galaxy S10e to make it your next phone? Well, if you are looking for a small and compact phone that performs well and has great cameras, then go for it. Yes, it falls well short of perfection in the battery life department, but given the fact that you're getting so much for as little as Rs. 55,990, I am willing to make that detrimental sacrifice here and recommend it. Seriously, the Galaxy S10e is only the best 'compact' phone I've tested in a long time, but it's also the best value Galaxy S model this year. And like I said, it's the Galaxy phone that most people should buy this year without the fear of missing out flagship features found on other phones.
  6. Fast charging has grown to become one of the most popular smartphone features lately. OnePlus started off the whole fast-charging fad with its 'Dash Charge' (now called Warp Charge) technology. And now, Huawei has 40W SuperCharge and Oppo has 50W SuperVOOC. Now, it looks like Xiaomi is also looking to enter the race with an incredible 100W fast charging technology. Yesterday, the company gave us our first glimpse of its new charging tech dubbed “Super Charge Turbo”. There's still a lot that we don't know about this new charging tech, but Xiaomi's co-founder and President Lin Bin has shared a video of its new technology in action. And guess what? It's looks absolutely insane! Just check this out - As you can see in the video, Xiaomi's new technology can charge a 4,000 mAh battery from 0-percent to 50-percent in just 7 minutes. If you think that's insane, then wait till you hear that leaving the phone on charge for an extra 10 minutes can bring the charge up to 100-percent. So essentially, you can fully charge a smartphone with 4,000 mAh battery in just 17-minutes. In comparison, Oppo's 50W SuperVOOC charging technology is capable of charging a smaller 3,700 mAh battery only up to 65-percent in 17 minutes. Of course, it's still miles ahead of a lot of smartphones on the market, but Xiaomi's new tech is on an other level. © YouTube Well, that's all for now. A certain Xiaomi smartphone that's launching as early as tomorrow is said to support this incredibly fast charging tech, so we hope to learn more about it very soon.
  7. Xiaomi has finally launched its first Android Go Edition smartphone, the Redmi Go in India today. With the new Redmi Go, Xiaomi is targeting the first-time smartphone users in the country, and it's priced at Rs 4,449, which puts it head-to-head with other entry-level devices in the country like the Nokia 1, JioPhone 2, and more. Redmi Go comes packed with a bunch of India-focused features like support for up to 20 Indian languages, Hindi language support for Google Assistant, and more. © Xiaomi As for the specifications, the Redmi Go sports a 5 inch HD screen and it's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core processor. It also has 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 128GB thanks to the microSD card slot. 1GB RAM does sound dated in 2019, but it shouldn't be a matter of concern since the Redmi Go runs Google's Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition), an OS which essentially allows low-end phones to run smoothly despite limited memory and storage capacity. The phone also comes with some pre-installed applications like Gmail Go, Assistant Go, Maps Go, and more. © Xiaomi Other noteworthy specs of the phone include an 8-megapixel rear camera with HDR mode and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Redmi Go does feature dual-SIM support, but sadly there's no dual VoLTE support. Redmi Go will be available to purchase from 22nd March onwards, and you'll be able to pick one up for yourself from Flipkart, mi.com or the Mi Home stores across the country.
  8. One of India's leading smartphone brands, Realme has created a Guinness World Record by creating the largest mobile phone sentence - "Proud To Be Young" - with 1024 Realme 3 devices. The event which was called the Realme Holi Party was organised on March 16 in New Delhi, and saw close to about 400 fans of the smartphone brand. Additionally, the smartphone maker also revealed their latest variant which is the dazzling Realme 3 Radiant Blue, powered by the AI master MediaTeK Helio P70 processor and a 4230 mAh battery that gives the longest battery life in the 10k-segment. Realme 3 comes with 3D Unibody Gradient Design in two variants: 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM. What's more? The brand is also the first in its segment to offer an f1.8 aperture and Nightscape Mode at the same time to get significantly better image quality. The #realme3 camera with Nightscape mode lets you capture more than you can see. #PowerYourStyle pic.twitter.com/WLbDi3UgQW — realme (@realmemobiles) March 4, 2019 But that's not all. It has also added the Chroma Boost mode, that uses AI technology to recognise the scenes in photos and optimize accordingly into a larger dynamic range, with more enriched details in highlighted parts and shadows, and more balanced exposure.

  9. Microsoft showed off its Project xCloud and gave a first look of the service working in action. The company has been developing a cloud-based game streaming platform for a while, which is expected to be the future of gaming. Microsoft is already planning to stream games that are made for the Xbox One and is also planning to launch a disc-less console soon. © YouTube As part of the demo, we can clearly see Forza Horizon 4 running in a data centre and being streamed to an Android smartphone. The game is being controlled by an Xbox One controller via Bluetooth. “Anywhere we have a good network connection, we'll be able to participate in Project xCloud,” Microsoft head of gaming cloud Kareem Choudhry said in the video Choudary also went on to explain that Project xCloud will work similar to music or video streaming services i.e you can log in from any device i.e. a phone or even a laptop and find the library similar to music libraries. Basically, this service will work on any device that has a screen and play demanding games on the fly. © Microsoft The service will also give you access to your cloud saves, friend lists and everything that users are already familiar with on the Xbox One. However, Choudry went on to say that “It's not a replacement for consoles, we're not getting out of the console business,” © Microsoft Game streaming services are being touted as the future of gaming thanks to new technologies like 5G and cloud computing. Google is also launching its own game streaming service next week at GDC 2019. Microsoft already offers a subscription service in the form of Xbox Game Pass where users can play Xbox One and Xbox 360 games for Rs 699 per month.
  10. So, the 'Notorious' Irishman has made headlines for his encounter with the law, yet again! This time for allegedly strong-armed robbery and misdemeanor and criminal mischief against an English civilian during his stay in Miami, Florida. According to MMA Fighting, Conor McGregor, the former UFC two-division champion, was charged on two counts for allegedly smashing the civilian's phone on Monday, outside a famous Miami Beach hotel as confirmed by the Miami Beach Police Department. MBPD has arrested and charged Conor McGregor, DOB: 7/14/88, with Strong Arm Robbery and Criminal Mischief, both felonies. Please see arrest report and booking photo below. No additional information will be provided. pic.twitter.com/9HdkRWPnd8 — Miami Beach Police (@MiamiBeachPD) March 12, 2019 Based on the arrest affidavit, both McGregor and the English citizen named Ahmed Abdirzak were exiting the hotel around half-past-five in the morning when the latter tried to capture the fighter's image with his phone. Displeased with the incident, McGregor decided to deal with the fan on his own. He snatched the phone out of the hands of Abdirzak, threw it on the ground, stomped on it a couple of times while causing a great amount of damage to the device and finally picked it up and walked away with it. After a case was filed against the Irishman, his attorney Samuel Rabin issued a statement on the incident: “Last evening Conor McGregor was involved in a minor altercation over a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement. Mr McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation.” Twitter rewarded the formal champion in the most 'Conor McGregor' way possible, by roasting him online: BREAKING: Conor McGregor Does A Conor McGregor — WWN (@WhispersNewsLTD) March 11, 2019 Fucking love Conor McGregor but he does himself no favours at allð — Connor Marshall (@ConnorM1872) March 11, 2019 Conor McGregor got arrested for stealing and smashing a fans phone.

Conor: pic.twitter.com/Gkwi8JmFHz — MacMallyð (@MacMallyMMA) March 12, 2019 Alternative headline: Conor McGregor gave a fan a surprise phone upgrade first thing this morning in Miami. — Mike Chiappetta MMA (@MikeChiappetta) March 11, 2019 Conor McGregor has now more arrests than wins in the last 3 years. — Mofasa (@hakkar2k) March 11, 2019 No stranger to police stations, massive fines and bad media, McGregor was charged with two counts of felony in Brooklyn for throwing a dolly out through a bus window and ended up pleading guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in order to avoid jail time last July. He is also currently undergoing a 6-month ban and has already paid a hefty fine worth $50,000 for the widely covered altercation with his opponent, Khabib Nurmagomedov that took place last year. After losing to the Russian via submission in the fourth round, Nurmagomedov leaped out of the octagon and attacked McGregor's entourage as a response of months of bullying and unfriendly behaviour displayed by Team McGregor towards Khabib, his coach and the rest of his squad.
  11. Realme is a very young brand and intends to take over the budget phone segment in India. They've launched a new phone every quarter in an effort to cover up every possible price bracket. The brand has been targeting its phones towards the youth and hence, focuses on performance and design the most. With the Realme 3, the brand wants to lure buyers with its powerful MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. The new processor has performed extremely well in our previous review of the Realme U1, and now it's available at an even better price. (c) MensXP/Shivam Vahia On the front, it has a 6.2-inch HD+ display (1520 x 720 resolution) and comes with Gorilla Glass protection. Realme claims it has achieved 88.30 per cent screen-to-body ratio thanks to a small water-drop style notch. Like we've said, the new P70 processor has four cores clocked at 2.1Ghz and boasts 15 per cent lesser power consumption when compared to previous generation offering. It also has a multi-threaded APU for AI processing. It comes in to two variants, 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. The internal memory is expandable via a microSD card. (c) MensXP/Shivam Vahia The rear houses a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. For authentication, a fingerprint scanner is located on the back and it also supports face unlock. For low-light pictures, Realme has included a Nightscape mode that improves the quality of pictures using AI. A Chroma Boost mode also helps in producing better colour by adjusting exposure and dynamic range. For selfies, a 13-megapixel camera has been provided on the front. Backing these innards is a 4230mAh battery. The phone ships with ColorOS 6.0, built on top of Android 9.0 Pie. The software has kept many stock Android elements untouched and added features include Game Space and quick app drawer on the left. (c) MensXP/Shivam Vahia The 3GB + 32GB option is priced at Rs 8,999 and the 4GB + 64GB variant is priced at Rs 10,999 . Sales start from March 12thh via online channels. The phone will be going up against the recently launched Redmi Note 7, Nokia 5.1 Plus, and ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M2. It'll be interesting to see how the brand is able to continue its steady rise in the country considering the competitive environment.
  12. Samsung and Huawei have both announced their iterations of a folding smartphone but differ from each other in design — from the ground up. The two companies showed off the foldable smartphones a few days apart from each other, however, Huawei's CEO of mobile business just took a dig at Samsung. Talking to Business Insider, Richard Yu said that Huawei had originally developed a folding smartphone similar to the Galaxy Fold. However, the Chinese company decided to kill the smartphone because the design was "not good.” “I feel having two screens, a front screen and a back screen makes the phone too heavy," Richard Yu said about the Galaxy Fold, speaking to Business Insider. Huawei's Mate X is fundamentally different from Samsung's offering as a foldable smartphone. It has a single flexible display that folds and unfolds to become a smartphone or a tablet. Samsung's Galaxy Fold has a dedicated screen on the front of the device and separate larger screen to turn it into a tablet. However, Huawei's Mate X is quite slimmer than the Galaxy Fold which makes a bit more practical as it can fit easily in a pocket. Having said that, some also believe that Mate X is more susceptible to scratches as it is more delicate when compared to the Galaxy Fold. Both the folding smartphones cost a lot of money as the Mate X costs a staggering €2,299 ($2,600) while the Galaxy Fold costs €2,000 ($1,980). As of now, both smartphones only appeal to early adopters who are willing to spend money on the latest piece of tech.
  13. Have you ever wanted a smartphone that has battery backup for days? We've seen plenty of foldable smartphones launched at MWC this year but Energizer's 18,000 mAh smartphone is unlike anything we've ever seen. It's being touted as the smartphone “with the most powerful battery in the market” and is called the Power Max P18K Pop. Energizer says that the phone will let you users watch videos for two days straight on a single charge and can last for 90-hour calls. It can last for 100 hours of music streaming and can last up to 50 days on standby mode. The Power Max P18K Pop can also double up as a power bank in case you want to charge any of your other devices on the go. Everyone: We don't care about thinness, just give us a bigger battery! Energizer: Hold my beer https://t.co/yLkOduSedI pic.twitter.com/X5MVeIAtIH — Enrique V (@rickyvtech) February 25, 2019 Naturally, anything with a battery of that size is going to be thicc (read “thick”) which is probably not going to sit comfortably in your pocket. It's so thick that you can use it as a weapon or throw it as a brick that can break things. It's 1cm across which is probably the thickest you've ever seen on a smartphone. Apart from the massive battery, the Power Max P18K Pop has a 6.2-inch FHD+ display and has an aspect ratio on 18:9. It's powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 processor, has 128GB of internal storage and 6GB RAM. In the camera department, it has a dual pop-up selfie camera with 6- and 2-megapixel sensors respectively. At the rear, it has a triple camera setup with 12, 5 and 2 megapixel sensors. It runs Android 9 Pie out of the box; however, the company has not revealed how much the smartphone will cost or when it will be available to buy.
  14. Samsung and Huawei kicked-off MWC 2019 with their foldable phones and we're still trying to wrap our heads around the groundbreaking technology. Social media and forums are filled with optimists as well as pessimists, and this has become the hottest topic for enthusiasts right now. Companies are ready to mass produce bendable displays, but one question still remains. How are we going to use these foldable phones in real life? How will the software compliment the hardware? It's going to take time to slowly understand different use case scenarios, and develop a finished product. © Nubia But, Nubia is taking this a level further with the launch of Nubia Alpha (styled as α). It's a combination of a watch and a phone, sporting a foldable display and the brand calls this a "wearable phone with a flexible display". To be honest, it's a fancy watch that offers more slightly more features than your regular wearable, but do we really need it right now? It sports a 4-inch 960x192 OLED screen that roughly covers half your wrist. Even though the brand claims it to be a phone, the specs say a different story. It comes with 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, and 500mAh battery. There's also a front-facing 5-megapixel camera. Nubia suggests the device will last 1-2 days of regular use, or a week on standby. © Nubia Just like the Apple Watch, it has a built-in eSIM which you can use for calls, texts, and all that other stuff SIM cards can do. It is water resistant, has activity and sleep-tracking along with a heart-rate sensor. Well, you can see movies on the watch if you don't mind standing with your arm lifted at the right angle all the time. And, the OS is custom built. Meaning, don't expect kick-ass app support anytime soon. The OS gets voice controls, air gestures, and other intuitive controls, but we're yet to see how smooth they really are. © Nubia On paper, the watch sounds exciting but lacks any practical usage. Yes, it is technically a "phone", but then the same can be said about the Apple Watch LTE as well. The watch costs a whopping €549 (Rs 44,000) in Europe and expected to ship from the third quarter of this year. Brands need to stop blindly following trends and think about delivering a usable product. You may manage to house a foldable display, but will it offer anything substantially better to the user in day-to-day life?
  15. MWC 2019 is in full swing and it's all about 5G and foldable phones. Even before the tradeshow started, Samsung announced the Galaxy Fold alongside the S10 and grabbed everyone's attention. This was soon followed by Huawei's Mate X, however, the two folding phones have a different approach and are the hottest products in town. Now, OPPO has also joined the bandwagon and revealed the images of their "concept" folding phones. OPPO VP Brian Shen shared a few pictures of the concept phone on Weibo and said the company isn't planning on shipping the phone unless there is sufficient demand. The most interesting part of the phone is its design though. © Weibo The pictures reveal a phone that looks eerily similar to Huawei's Mate X. A single large OLED panel wraps around both the sides when folded, instead of folding towards the inside (like the Galaxy Fold). A bar on the outside houses a dual camera setup and offers grip in holding the tablet-cum phone. Shen said, that he doesn't think a foldable phone brings significant improvement in user experience and hence OPPO is refraining from mass producing the phone right now. Basically, OPPO intends to let Samsung and Huawei launch their offerings, analyse the market response, and then decide whether the product is viable in short-term. © Weibo Xiaomi has also confirmed that it is working on a foldable phone with dual-fold technology. We've previously seen them teasing a similar prototype, and expect the brand to join the trend in the coming future. OPPO hasn't named the concept yet and even the internal specifications remain unknown. With so many companies trying to make their mark, it's ultimately going to be good for the consumer. Samsung and Huawei are charging upwards of US$ 2,000 (Rs 1,42,000) for the foldable phones right now, and with more companies joining the trend and investing in development, the costs are bound to gradually come down. © Weibo So far, OPPO has announced it will launch a phone with 10x "lossless" zoom technology in the second quarter of this year. The phone will have a triple-lens camera structure including a 48-megapixel main camera, 120-degree ultra-wide lens and a telephoto lens. "Our 10x Lossless Zoom is mass-production-ready and will appear in a product soon," said Chuck Wang, Product Manager, OPPO.
  16. Huawei has been churning out some spectacular devices in the past year which resulted in the Chinese company becoming the world's second-largest smartphone brand by market share. Recently, Samsung announced its latest flagship smartphone that impressed the world. However, one big caveat of the smartphone is its thickness when folded. Huawei may have come up with a solution and out-engineered the South Korean giant with a more practical foldable smartphone. It's called the Huawei Mate X and it was unveiled over the weekend ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC). The smartphone trumps Samsung's fold in a lot of ways, for example, it has a better screen-to-body ratio. The Huawei Mate X has an 8-inch OLED display that basically folds at the centre and becomes a smaller smartphone with a screen on the back and the front. Samsung's Fold may look exciting, however, it has a cut out on its display when unfolded and has bigger bezels. © Reuters As we mentioned before, the Samsung Fold is not exactly a sleek smartphone that can fit right into your pocket. However, Huawei has made a foldable smartphone that's thinner when folded i.e. 11mm. That's 6mm thinner than Samsung's Fold making it easier to carry around. When it comes to different sizes when using different screens for different purposes, here's how the Mate X's display will work: â 6.6-inch (19.5:9 aspect ratio, 2480 x 1148 resolution) main display, when folded. â 6.4-inch (25:9, 2480 x 892) rear display, when folded. â 8-inch (8:7.1, 2480 x 2200) main display, when unfolded. When a smartphone has a massive screen when opened, it also needs a massive battery to power it for a long duration. The Mate X comes with a 4,500 mAh battery and can charge at 55W. That's getting an 85% charge in half an hour. When it comes to processing power, the Mate X is powered by the Kirin 980 chipset that is also present on the Mate 20 Pro and Honor View 20. It's coupled with Huawei's latest 5G modem and has peak download speeds of 4.6Gbps. That's double of what Qualcomm's n X50 5G chipset can achieve on the Samsung Galaxy Fold. © Huawei The Mate X comes with a quad camera setup however Huawei hasn't detailed much about them apart from the fact that it is "at par” with the Mate 20 Pro. The Mate 20 Pro was one of the best smartphones for mobile photography last year and is amongst the top Android smartphones of 2018. The Huawei Mate X has a lot going on that also demands a huge price tag. It's priced at 2,300 euros, which is roughly Rs 1,85,300 and is quite more expensive than Samsung's Galaxy Fold. It's expected to be available around June or July in select markets and we aren't sure if we will get to see Mate X launch in India until 5G networks take off.
  17. Samsung's next launch event is right around the corner and the Korean company may have just made the event a bit more exciting. Samsung is scheduled to announce the Galaxy S10 and its different models. However, a foldable smartphone may also be unveiled. In one of the videos promoting the Unpacked 2019 event, Samsung teased a foldable smartphone that may launch alongside the Galaxy S10. © LetsGoDigital Based on these teasers, renders of the Galaxy F or Galaxy Fold may look like have surfaced online. Samsung did give us a glimpse last November of the foldable smartphone; however, it was encased in a thick dummy case. Samsung promises that the final version of the phone will be a lot thinner. However, it did not stop LetsGoDigital from making renders based on the promo video and past leaks. The bezels are thin around the edges and it looks rather sexy as compared to what Samsung showed off last year. © LetsGoDigital The overall form factor in the render is a lot wider which gives it a uniform look you would expect from a tablet. It looks less square which means it will also be a wider screen when folded. The smartphone will use Samsung's new One UI which will have easier functionality for one-handed use. However, this is all based on Samsung's promo video and if Samsung sticks to what it showed, the final device will look very similar to these renders. Having said that, you must take this news with a pinch of salt as you never know whether Samsung will show off a foldable smartphone in its full glory or not at the Unpacked event later this month.

  18. Following the first leak of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 a few weeks ago, more images have surfaced of the flagship and details about the phone are slowly getting clearer. We're just a month away from the launch but now high-quality photos of the device have popped up online, thanks to the German blog AllAboutSamsung. We've seen numerous render leaks and the prototypes come very close to them. The bezels have been snipped even further and there are radical changes on the back as well as the front. Samsung was the only mainstream brand to not embrace the notch last year and it intends to continue the same for its flagship. © AllAboutSamsung Instead of a notch, Samsung is embedding a punch-hole camera on the front. The “Infinity-O” hole-punch display, as they're officially called, first showed up in Samsung's A8 phones, which were only released in China. What we are looking at here are the prototypes for the 6.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S10 and 6.4-inch Galaxy S10+ having a different punch-hole cut-out. The S10+ has a dual front-facing camera setup, while the S10 has a singular module. The back of the phone has a huge camera arrangement, with three lenses and LED flash and Samsung's typical PPG heart rate sensor. It's surprising that even the smaller S10 has three cameras, given that the S9+ has two cameras compared to the S9's single camera. It's possible Samsung could go with a dual camera setup on the S10 Lite variant. © AllAboutSamsung Lastly, the bottom of the phone has a USB-C charging port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. This'll make Samsung among the few who still find space to house the ancient port and many users out there are going to be extremely happy about it. For now, we've seen the ceramic black and ceramic white colour options and rumours suggest we'll be seeing more options at launch. A few reports earlier in the week also mentioned the new phones will come with a Samsung Blockchain Keystore app. Ethereum has been listed as a supported cryptocurrency and it will have support for Bitcoin, Ethereum-derived token ERC20 and Bitcoin Cash as well at launch. © Twitter / VenyaGeskin1 The Galaxy S10 line will be unveiled in San Francisco on February 20th, which is less than a month away. There have also been leaks suggesting the price of the phones and Samsung is trying its level best to keep them consistent with last year's offerings. What are your thoughts on the initial design of the phone?
  19. Last year, Vivo showed off the Vivo APEX 2018 concept and it featured a pop-up sliding camera and thinnest possible bezels. Back then, everyone was excited to see the concept materialize and surprisingly the brand managed to mass produce it within six months. The finished product was called the Vivo NEX. © Vivo Now after a year, Vivo has unveiled the APEX 2019 concept and it is even more amusing. Just today we saw Meizu's Zero that is completely holeless. The APE 2019 concept follows a similar line, but with more practicality. To start with, the phone has no buttons and completely relies on Touch Sense technology, it brings together capacitive touch and pressure-sensing. The software has been optimized to detect pressure or squeezing on the frame and can determine the pressure points location. Secondly, the usual USB port has been replaced by a MagPort. It is a magnetic power connector that enables both charging and data transfer and doesn't require a socket. Even the usual earpiece or speakers are gone and replaced by Body SoundCasting technology that turns the complete display into a speaker. © Vivo Last year we witnessed the mainstream adoption of the in-display fingerprint scanner. But, the scanner was limited to a specific area on the screen. With the APEX 2019 concept, Vivo is enabling the complete display to act as a scanner. This enables users to touch almost anywhere on the screen to unlock the device. Also, when you touch the display to unlock, the nearby screen pixels will light up for a faster and more accurate authentication. Lastly, the concept has 5G support thanks to the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 platform. The phone shall come up with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory. Vivo is also bundling along its Jovi AI Assistant. This will be the company's first phone to run 5G. © Vivo Why did Vivo decide to remove many of the usual components like the USB port, buttons, and more? To make up space for the 5G modules. It also incorporates a Duplex PCB design to make 20 percent more space. The company has already announced it will be at MWC 2019 and visitors shall get a chance to experience the device first-hand. For now, this is a concept and there is no word on mass availability. Given Vivo's 2018 timelines, we expect the phone to be ready by the end of 2019 though.
  20. Smartphone makers have been trying really hard to distinguish themselves from the rest and often leave aside practicality. Last year, we witnessed OPPO and Vivo's short stints with sliding camera modules, forceful addition of the notch, and even devices with a display on the back. A prime question that they often forget is, do we really need this? Meizu has decided to take this a notch further with the Meizu Zero. It is the world's first phone with no holes. That's right, the company has stripped everything down and created a near-perfect enclosed phone. To start with, it has no charging port and you'll have to completely rely on wireless charging. Secondly, there's no SIM tray and you'll have to use the built-in eSIM technology to get cellular services. © Meizu Lastly, it doesn't have a headphone jack. We've got used to this removal and while there are many good alternatives available to solve this issue, not having a charging port sounds monstrous. Yes, wireless is definitely the future, but forcefully pushing it forward now isn't rational. In Meizu's defence though, they've managed to equip the phone with 18W wireless charging, which is really fast. This would surpass Apple's 7.5W and Samsung's 9W wireless charging speeds by a huge margin. © Meizu The traditional speakers have also been removed and replaced by Meizu's "mSound 2.0 In-screen Sound Technology" that allows the display to behave as a speaker. The phone also skips the notch or a punch-hole camera. On the front is a 6-inch OLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner and the glass curves towards the edges. It runs on a Snapdragon 845 processor along with LPDDR4X RAM. For the cameras, there's a pair of Sony's IMX380 + IMX350 dual camera setup while the front has a 20-megapixel selfie camera. © Meizu Considering it's a hole-less phone, it gets IP68 water and dust resistance and there are no physical buttons. Meizu is using a haptic feedback system to offer virtual buttons on the side to turn the phone on and off and to adjust the volume. While I've been critical about the use of such a phone, these devices aren't meant to be hot sellers. In fact, the Meizu Zero comes close to a concept phone that depicts how gadgets will evolve over the coming years. The concept is way ahead of its time and just because you can do it, doesn't mean you should do it.
  21. Last year, Samsung gave us a sneak peek at its upcoming foldable phone and everyone has been excited about the future of smartphones. We've already heard LG and Huawei working on similar technology and now Xiaomi is joining the battle as well. The company's president, Lin Bin, has now confirmed that the company is indeed working on a "double folding smartphone", and has shared a video showing it in action. Both sides of the phone can be folded back to transform it from a tablet into a more compact phone. We're confident the video shows a prototype in action since creases are easily visible. Considering the new form factor transformation, the device will be running an optimized version of MIUI that will instantly convert the UI for a seamless experience. The video shows the device can quickly change into a compact phone and sports glossy finish. Xiaomi's president revealed that they have employed a four-wheel drive foldable shaft technology and a foldable display to achieve the form factor. This may make this device the first one to sport a double folding mechanism. © Xiaomi The prototype visible in the video demonstrates only the folding functionality of the device and all other specifications remain unknown. In fact, there are no cameras or sensors visible on the prototype. The power button is located on the top, for now. The most important part of the video is how quickly the UI transforms to accommodate a new form factor. If any brand wants success with this concept, a seamless transition in the UI has to be a top priority. © YouTube / Samsung's Prototype One question continues to remain unanswered though, when will we see these prototypes production ready? Recent reports have indicated Samsung will be releasing a foldable phone by the end of this year. We expect Xiaomi too have a similar roadmap as well, considering they want to directly take on the South Korean giant. As far as prices are concerned, we've also heard that these devices are going to be extremely costly in the beginning. MWC 2019 is just a month away now and we look forward to seeing more of this in action there.
  22. 5G smartphones are around the corner even though 5G networks are a rare sight at the moment. OnePlus hinted at a 5G smartphone but it will be costlier thanks to the new technology. Samsung is the other company looking to beat OnePlus to the punch and may launch its first 5G smartphone alongside the Galaxy S10. In fact, it will be one of the three models that will be announced next month. © Twitter Having said that, Korean websites have reported that the device will be called the Galaxy S10 X and that Samsung is going to throw everything at the upcoming device. It's obvious that the 5G functionally adds to the cost of the smartphone, however, it's the other specs that are getting us excited. Basically, whatever you have heard about the Galaxy S10, multiply it by tenfold. © Twitter The 5G smartphone is also expected to be called the Galaxy S10 X is rumoured to have at least 10 GB of RAM or even 12 GB of RAM. In terms of storage, the smartphone is expected to have 1TB storage and that's without a microSD. In terms of cameras, the Galaxy S10 X is expected to have a quad camera setup and will be backed by two selfie cameras. The smartphone in question is also expected to have a larger battery than ever before i.e. 5,000 mAh battery. © Twitter In terms of display, the smartphone will sport a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED screen and will have an in-display fingerprint sensor. All of these specifications are expected to drive up the price and will probably cost a bomb. However, Samsung will be launching other models across different price tiers with the Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+. These devices are expected to cost anywhere from $715 (Rs 50,689) to $1,400 (Rs 99,000). As for the launch dates, Samsung will announce these smartphones on February 20th and the launch will follow shortly after. The 4G devices are expected to go on sale by March 8th while the exclusive 5G Galaxy S10 X will launch on March 29.
  23. Samsung is all set to launch its next flagship smartphone that will likely be called the Galaxy S10. It will debut a week ahead of MWC on February 20th. The invites for the 'Unpacked' event have been sent out to media and it will take place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. © Samsung The company has decided to skip the Mobile World Conference and it is unlikely that we will see any other major announcements from the South Korean giant that week. It's not the first time Samsung has skipped the conference, as in 2017, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8 at a separate event in March. © Twitter/Even Blass It has been long rumoured that Samsung will launch three variants of the Galaxy S10 i,e, the S10, S10 Plus and S10 Lite/E. Previous rumours have suggested that either all or some of these devices will come with Samsung's Infinity-O display, better known as the punch-hole display. The display will basically have a very small circular cutout that will house the front-facing camera. It will be at the top of the screen and looks similar to a punch hole on a paper. We can also see a clue about the new display in the invite, where the middle bezel is extremely thin and will be all around the phone. © Twitter/Venya Geskin1 Additional information from leaks suggests that Samsung may add a third camera to the back of the Galaxy S10 Plus and may sport a wide-angle lens just like the LGv40 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Of course, since these are all based on leaks, we can only be sure once Samsung makes it official at the February launch event. What Else Can We Expect? Samsung has already confirmed that it's working on a foldable smartphone and there's a good chance that we may see it unveiled at the “Galaxy Unpacked” event. It has already been confirmed by Samsung that the foldable smartphone will launch in the first half of 2019. We could also hear about the Galaxy Home smart speaker that is powered by Samsung's Bixby digital assistant. The smart speaker was unveiled at the Galaxy Note 9 launch however we haven't heard anything about it ever since.
  24. Huawei has been teasing the Y9 launch for a few weeks and after a couple of delays, it has finally made it to India. The phone is among the first ones to be launched this year and with intensifying competition, Huawei wants to stay on the cutting edge. The Huawei Y9 is the latest addition to an elaborate line-up of smartphones from the Chinese giant, also the first Y-series smartphone to launch in India. The midrange Huawei phone has been official outside of India for a few months now and shall be exclusively available via Amazon in the country. © Huawei The main highlight of the phone is its design. The brand has brought down its P20 Pro's design language, and the Y9 has an eerily similar look. Even the rear camera setup is identical in position and the glass back gives it an uber-premium look. It features a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution along with a tiny notch on the top. The display has a resolution of 2340 × 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:5:9. Powering the device is a Huawei octa-core Kirin 710 12nm processor coupled with ARM Mali-G51 MP4 GPU for graphics. © Huawei Huawei Y9 comes in two variants, the first one has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage while the second one has 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. But only the 64GB variant is coming to India. Both options are supporting expandable storage via a microSD card. The back of the phone sports a 16-megapixel primary camera with f/2.0 aperture and a 2-megapixel secondary lens with f/2.4 aperture. The front of the smartphone also has a dual camera system consisting of a 13+2-megapixel setup. For authentication, it has a fingerprint scanner on the back and also runs Face Unlock. © Huawei Like every Huawei phone, it runs on EMUI 9 on top of Android 9.0 Pie. Backing these internals is a 4000mAh battery that supports fast charging via a micro-USB port. The starting variant with 64GB internal storage is priced at Rs 15,999. The phone goes on sale starting from 15th January in Midnight Black, Blue Swarovski, and Aurora Purple colour on Amazon exclusively.
  25. By now if you've already watched/experienced Black Mirror's interactive movie “Bandersnatch”, you would have wanted to play the game in the movie. So, if you haven't watched the interactive movie yet, this is your last chance to avoid any spoilers below. If you want to know more about the new Black Mirror movie, you can read all about it here (spoiler free). © MensXP In the interactive movie, there's an easter egg that was discovered by Reddit users where you can actually discover two separate versions of the game. Tuckersoft's website can be found via scanning a QR code in the show and it will land on a page that advertises both Nohzdyve and Bandersnatch. The site notes: “While Colin Ritman was Tuckersoft's leading man, it was Stefan Butler's 1984 release, Bandersnatch, that catapulted the company to new heights. The innovative narrative and gameplay transformed interactive entertainment forever.” © Netflix The website follows a very distinct 1990s vibe in terms of design and is a nod to the Black Mirror movie. However, if you've seen the movie you will know that “Bandersnatch” was never released due to a series of unfortunate events. What was unexpected was that the Tuckersoft website also has “Nohzdyve”, a game that was also featured in the movie. The cool thing is that Nohzdyve is available to play but can only run on a ZX Spectrum emulator. Since the game in the movie was only compatible with the Spectrum, a computer in the 80s and 90s. However, you can play this game on your Windows computer or your Android phone since the emulator is very light and can run easily. © MensXP You need to download, Speccy, on your computer or your Android phone in order to play the game. Head over to this version of Tuckersoft's website (there are two), go to Nohzdve's page and hit download. You will download a file called 'nohzdyve.tap.' Once the game has been downloaded, open Speccy and open the 'nohzdyve.tap.' file to run the game. The game will now start and will take some time to open the title screen.
