  1. Microsoft’s hardware division has started to churn out some incredible devices that were missing for quite a few years. Then the company announced the Surface series of laptops which not only combines great design but also explores the future with new chipsets, a stylus and a more integrated design. The new Surface X Pro is amongst one of those laptops from the Surface series that comes with a custom ARM chipset that may just be future of laptops and Microsoft tablets. This time around, Microsoft has made a more comprehensive laptop for everyday users who are always on the move. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla While many have opinions about netbooks/tablets/laptops that are targeted towards “mobile workers”; the landscape has changed ever since the COVID-19 pandemic. People are working from home and not everyone needs a full-blown laptop for emails, basic image editing and using Microsoft office. Surface Pro X is the perfect offering for Windows users who are looking for the most portable laptop that can last all day, has a sexy design and can always stay connected with mobile internet connectivity. Here’s why we think the Surface Pro X may just be the future of portable computing machines: Design If you are looking for something sexy, beautiful and eye-catching, you cannot go wrong with the Surface Pro X. We’ve tested quite a few laptops at MensXP and the Surface Pro X may just the most gorgeous laptop we’ve used all year. The laptop has extremely thin bezels on the sides, a curved aluminium body and a beautiful 13-inch display. It looks very much similar to the Surface Pro 7 however there are some design aspects that make the Surface Pro X stand out. While the entire body is made of metal, the back of the laptop is a major fingerprint magnet. A laptop with a design that is more in-line with a tablet; you will be holding this laptop quite a lot and subsequently have a lot of fingerprint at the back. You can’t really avoid this problem unless you use some form of skin to cover up the back of the laptop. As we mentioned earlier, the Surface Pro X has a very tablet-like design, you can draw comparisons with Apple’s iPad Pro. It is 7.3mm thin and has a premium feel to it similar to the iPad Pro. It is particularly light and weighs only 775 grams which is lighter than most laptops you can buy today. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In order to give a more of a laptop vibe to the Surface Pro X, the laptop comes with a keyboard cover that is at par with modern keyboards on laptops. We loved the fact that the keyboard case is quite lightweight and doesn’t make the total weight of the laptop as heavy as the iPad Pro. There are magnets to keep the cover in pace and doesn’t come out even if you try aggressively shake it off. Additionally, the outer layer of the keyboard cover has a black Alcantara fabric that has a very similar texture as suede. Additionally, the keyboard cover also comes with the Surface Slim Pen and is not sold separately unlike the Apple Pencil for the iPad Pro. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla For people wondering about the ports and connections, there aren’t many on offer as the design resembles more of a tablet than a laptop. Due to space constraints, the Surface Pro X comes with two USB-C ports that can be used for charging, data transfers and display out. Having said that, we couldn’t ignore the fact the Surface Pro X does not have a headphone jack and neither a microSD slot to expand storage. You can use a USB-C to 3.55mm dongle for audio output if you’re not a fan of Bluetooth audio but we would have loved to see that flexibility. Having said that, you can install a physical SIM card for LTE connectivity or alternately use the e-sim feature via Windows 10. If you plan to use e-sim; do note that currently, only Airtel and Reliance Jio have support for the new form of connectivity. You will find the SIM tray below the kickstand that can be popped and is highly accessible making it easy to switch SIM cards if you are always travelling internationally. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Finally, in order to use the Surface X Pro, there is a small wedge at the back from which you can take out the metal kickstand that lets you rest the Surface Pro X on the table. While this the kickstand design is great to use practically anywhere; it isn’t comfortable to use on your lap. If you don’t use your laptop on your; you know lap; using the Surface Pro X won’t be an issue. However, if you want to relax and work at the same time let’s say on a bed or a recliner; you will find it difficult to use as the laptop needs a flat surface for the kickstand to rest on. Display As we mentioned earlier, the touchscreen display on the Surface X Pro is absolutely gorgeous and has a resolution of 2880 x 1920. However, the display does not have a few features that are now part of modern laptops and tablets. For example, the display does not have support for high-dynamic-range (HDR)/Dolby Vision or wide-colour gamut. The display also does not have any anti-glare which could be disadvantageous for using outdoors or brightly lit areas. Having said that, the display does have an “enhanced” colour mode for boosting contacts and correcting sRBG colours whenever needed. We would recommend turning on the “enhanced” display mode if you intend to watch movies and TV shows on Netflix and other video streaming platforms. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In our tests, the display on the Surface X Pro had a brightness level of 410 nits, which is higher than most laptops and in line with the more premium offerings. Watching movies and TV shows is an absolute delight on this display however with no support for HDR/Dolby Vision; you really don’t get the full experience, especially since the iPad Pro, does both those things flawlessly. Surface Slim Pen The Surface Pro X also comes with a new slim pen that can be stored in the keyboard cover. The dedicated storage space of the Pen is a nice touch and holds the pen firmly with magnets. The Slim Pen also charges in the storage space wirelessly which was a smart move on Microsoft’s part. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The pen works very similarly to a stylus and the back end of the pen can be used as an eraser. The same back end also functions as the Bluetooth button for paragon purposes. The stem of the pen has two buttons that can be assigned certain functions. The Microsoft Surface Slim pen can also be used when tilted and has 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Having said that, the pen is not really meant to be used by artists for graphic design work as it has a jittery effect when drawing straight lines. It seems Microsoft made this particular pen for more rudimentary purposes such as taking notes, making annotations and navigation. Keyboard and Trackpad The keyboard, trackpad and camera have a direct impact on the overall experience of a laptop and it wasn’t disappointing on the Surface Pro X. The keyboard feels quite familiar and is very similar to previous Surface laptops. The keys feel great to type on and has ample key travel to make you feel right at home. The keyboard also has three different levels of backlighting which is always good to have when working in dimly lit environments. The keyboard is as good as any previous Surface laptop and other offerings in the same price category. In fact, this is the closest thing Apple’s magic keyboard cover for the iPad Pro. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The trackpad is also large enough to use so that you don’t feel fatigued when using it for navigation and other actions. It is probably the most used part of any laptop and the glass-topped trackpad makes using it a breeze. It’s smooth and does not have a rough texture that could add any friction when using the trackpad repeatedly. Performance When it comes to the performance, the Surface Pro X is powered by Microsoft’s custom SQ1 professor based on ARM64’s architecture. Most recent laptops have been based on the X86 architecture either from Intel or AMD, however, this is the first time we got to check out something based on ARM by Microsoft. The most impressive feat of this laptop would be the fact that it runs Windows 10 Home. Even though the ARM64 architecture may not sound capable of handling traditional 32-bit apps, in our tests they ran without any hiccups. In fact, most of the time this app ran fine however there was a slight hit in performance. Native apps built for the ARM architecture ran flawlessly however if you plan on using apps that were developed for the X86 architecture, you will not get the optimum experience. If you plan on using Adobe’s suite of applications like Photoshop, you may have to wait a bit as the Surface X Pro simply emulates the X86 app versions. Adobe has said they are in the process of making or porting the apps optimised on ARM64 chipsets. Having said that, if you need a comparison, the SQ1 chipset does outperform i5-8250U CPUs and did fairly well in our benchmark tests. The Surface Pro X has 8GB of onboard RAM that cannot be upgraded, however, it was more than enough for launching heavy apps and carry out basic tasks. As for SSD, our tests showed it is capable of 2,019 MB/s of reading speed and 832 MB/s write speed. That’s more or less in line with modern laptops that come with NVME SSDs and is even higher than previous Surface laptops. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In our Geekbench 5 test, the Surface Pro X managed to score 752 in the single-core test and 2,980 in the multi-core tests which easily beats other ARM-based laptops in the same category. As for graphics, the Adreno 680 GPU is good enough to emulate mobile games and console games from previous generations but do not expect it to run modern PC games. Having said that, we can expect the Surface Pro X to run Microsoft’s upcoming game streaming service quite well which could be great for portable gaming. That’s kind of expected with the ARM63 architecture but it was still impressive to see score 7,065 in 3DMark's GPU-intensive Night Raid 1.0 benchmark. The Final Say If you’re in the market for a laptop that offers decent battery life, LTE connections, modern design and something more portable, the Surface X Pro is probably the perfect laptop for you. Based on an ARM64 chipset, the Surface Pro X gives us a glimpse into the future of portable laptops that will become the norm for most professionals. The Microsoft Surface Pro X is available at a starting price of Rs 1,01,990.00 while if you want to get the keyboard along with it; it is currently available for Rs 1,14,180.00 on Amazon.

  2. Itâs always a sight to see whenever a new teardown video by JerryRigEverything shows up on Youtube, but this time, it is special. The OnePlus 8 Pro launched recently and in case youâre not aware, the smartphone comes with new hardware and features like wireless charging. While the smartphone is yet to launch in India, it is still exciting to see what the phone is actually made of. The OnePlus 8 Pro also comes with an IP 68 rating which means the innards of the phone have to be tightly packed as well. © JerryRigEverything The smartphoneâs teardown shows the OnePlus 8 Pro has a very neat and almost artistic design even from the inside. It shows that OnePlus designed the inside of the smartphone keeping everything in mind and with good planning. The smartphone was not easy to open because the back panel was helped by a strong adhesive, something OnePlus may have decided to use for the IP 68 rating. The phone is rated for water resistance which means the design of the smartphone cannot let any water seep in that can potentially damage the motherboard and other hardware components. There are even rubber caps on the SIM card tray to prevent water from getting in. © JerryRigEverything Once the panel is opened, the first thing you notice is the massive golden copper coils. These coils are used for wireless charging support which was a long-demanded feature by fans. The OnePlus 8 Pro supports 30W wireless charging via their proprietary charging stand. You can also see the massive camera sensors being used in the OnePlus 8 Pro which includes a 48MP main camera sensor in the middle, a 16MP ultra-wide camera and an additional macro sensor. The OnePlus 8 Pro also did well in JerryRigEverythingâs durability test where the smartphone was not easy to bend and did not crack in the process. The smartphoneâs display was also exposed to flame for 30 seconds that left permanent damage but was still usable after the test. If you are interested in seeing the full test for yourself, check out the video below: View the full article
  3. The iPhone 12 Pro is turning out to be a great smartphone, if we go by the latest leaks, as the company is planning to overhaul the design of the smartphone. The notch design of the upcoming iPhone was leaked on Twitter and it shows that the notch is finally getting smaller, thanks to Apple moving some components around. © Apple Insider Jon Prosser, the Apple insider who leaked accurate information of iPhone SE 2020âs launch has now taken to Twitter to reveal more details about the iPhone 12 Pro or whatever Apple decides to call it. The notch has now been moved to the top bezel of the phone and not at the centre of the notch, giving Apple the freedom to shrink down the size. Here you go, internet. pic.twitter.com/REfSw28KSX â Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser) April 20, 2020 In fact, Prosser tweeted an image with detailed hardware changes in the notch and also clarified that the microphone is embedded in the speaker itself. While many iPhone fans have wanted a notch-free design, it seems like Apple is going to stick with the design for now. Apple apparently does not want to drop FaceID on flagship iPhones and the TrueDepth 3D sensor that is essential for facial recognition security. © Twitter/Jon Prosser A smaller notch is still an upgrade where the display gets more real-estate but the biggest upgrade also comes in the form of the display quality. The iPhone 12 Pro is rumoured to feature a 120Hz refresh rate display which has been used on the iPad Pro, previously. Even the design of the phone is expected to change as it is rumoured to have flatter sides and a thinner body. There have been rumours that the iPhone 12 will have a similar design as the classic iPhone 4. © Twitter/pro-technizio-concept In terms of the camera setup, the iPhone 12 Pro is expected to have a LiDAR depth sensor similar to the new iPad Pro and a new 5G modem for better connectivity. The smartphone will also be powered by Appleâs most powerful chipset yet i.e, the A14 Bionic SoC. Thereâs no word when the new iPhones are expected to launch but there is a good chance the launch of the phones will be delayed to October this year. Apple usually launches new iPhones every September, however, with the COVID-19 situation, we can expect the launch to be delayed as it is extended testing periods for the upcoming phone.

  4. The new OnePlus 8 Pro is probably the best OnePlus phone we've seen till date. It's got a really smooth display, a great design, and a powerful set of internals along with support for 5G. There's hardly anything to complain about, at least by looking at the specs sheet. And now that we know exactly how much it costs here in India, we think it's a good time to compare it with last year's OnePlus 7T Pro and see if it's worth upgrading. Let's take a look. Note: This comparison is purely based on the specs of both devices. We'll dive deep into a detailed comparison once we get our hands on the new OnePlus 8 series phones. Design © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee The OnePlus 8 Pro looks more or less the same as the OnePlus 7T Pro, however, there are some key differences. First off, it's worth pointing out that OnePlus has ditched the pop-up camera module for a punch-hole cutout on the front for the selfie camera. And now that there are fewer moving parts on the phone, it comes with IP67 rating for dust and water resistance. Great move. At the back, you'll also notice that the phone now comes with an additional camera sensor. Overall, the OnePlus 8 Pro is noticeably larger in size than the OnePlus 7T Pro, but it's both thinner and lighter, so we'll see how it feels in the hand. DisplayOnePlus had a lot to say about the new display on the OnePlus 8 Pro. It's apparently the best display they've ever put on an OnePlus phone. Experts say that it's currently among the best displays on the market too. It's a 6.78-inch panel with a resolution of 3168 x 1440 pixels on the 8 Pro as compared to the 6.67-inch panel on the 7T Pro. © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee Both panels are AMOLED, so you should be able to see rich colors and deep blacks. The OnePlus 8 Pro's panel, however, is a bit more advanced, so you might see a noticeable difference when compared side-by-side. It's also worth noting that the 8 Pro's display supports a 120Hz refresh rate compared to the 7T Pro's 90Hz refresh rate. Both panels also have an in-display fingerprint scanner. Overall, the OnePlus 8 Pro seems to have a better panel here, but we'll reserve our judgments for now. CameraCameras have been a huge talking point when it comes to OnePlus phones as they haven't had the best optics in the game. The 8 Pro, however, aims to change that with its quad-camera setup which includes two 48MP sensors, an 8MP telephoto lens, and a 5MP color filter camera. It certainly sounds like an upgrade from last year's OnePlus 7T Pro, but we'll do a detailed comparison later when we have both the devices. As for the selfie shooter, we're looking at the same 16MP sensor with fixed focus and 1.0µm pixels. Internal HardwareAs is the case with every other new OnePlus phone, the OnePlus 8 Pro also comes with the latest and the greatest set of hardware. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC and comes with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The OnePlus 7T Pro, in comparison, is powered by the Snapdragon 855+ SoC. © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee On top of that, the OnePlus 8 Pro is 5G enabled, which the OnePlus 7T Pro isn't. The OnePlus 8 Pro also has a bigger battery coming at 4,510mAh compared to OnePlus 7T Pro's 4,085mAh unit. Both phones support the 30W Warp charge, but the OnePlus 8 Pro also supports wireless charging, which is great. The Final SayAs you would've already guessed, the OnePlus 8 Pro offers a lot of upgrades over last year's OnePlus 7T Pro. We're looking at a better display, upgraded internals as well as a new camera setup. Other things like 5G support and a larger battery with wireless charging make its case even stronger. The OnePlus 8 Pro is clearly a superior device, at least on paper. That being said, the OnePlus 7T Pro is still an exceptional phone and we think it's worth holding on to if you already have one. But if you're planning on upgrading from an older device, then clearly the new OnePlus 8 Pro is the way to go. View the full article
  5. Just a few days ago, OnePlus announced new phones - the 8 and 8 Pro with prices that were not really up to everyoneâs expectations. OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro retail in the US starting at $699 and $899, respectively. However, the company also announced the smartphone in China today and the prices for the phone are very different from the global prices. © Twitter_MKBHD In China, the OnePlus 8 launched for RMB 3,999 which roughly translates to Rs 43,160 and the OnePlus 8 Pro launched for RMB 5,399 which converts to Rs 58,270. These prices are considerably less than prices of the OnePlus 8 Series in other regions which could give a hint at how the phone will be priced in India. © Youtube_INSPIRATION While China prices are considerably lower than North America and Europe, it can give us a big hint at the India pricing as well. India and China are the most important markets for OnePlus where the two countries make up most of their sales when considering the total number of sales. India accounts for almost 33% of the total sales for OnePlus, which means the company is expected to follow a similar strategy in India. With a lower price margin, OnePlus may want to sell more in volume and recover margins from other regions. It is a similar strategy they adopted for the OnePlus 7 Series as well and we can see Indian prices to be similar to what OnePlus is offering in China. If we go by OnePlusâ China prices, we can expect the OnePlus 8 to priced at Rs 45,000 considering import duty and the new GST rules as well. For the OnePlus 8 Pro, we can expect the phone to be priced at Rs 60,000. It is worthy to note that these prices are not set in stone and OnePlus may make the final pricing even cheaper or costlier than expected. View the full article
  6. The ongoing coronavirus outbreak outbreak may have stalled things worldwide, it's safe to say that 2020 has seen kickass smartphones. We've already seen a ton of new phones that have come out so far this year, and the new OnePlus phones are next in line. While we don't exactly know when these new OnePlus phones will come out amidst all the chaos, we do have the specification details of the phones. Thanks to a tipster, we now have the complete specs of both the OnePlus 8 as well as the OnePlus 8 Pro. Here's everything that you need to know - OnePlus 8 Pro The OnePlus 8 Pro is said to feature a 6.78-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It'll be powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC and will have up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. As for the optics, the OnePlus 8 Pro is said to sport a quad-camera setup with two 48MP sensors, along with an 8MP and a 5MP sensor. © Twitter/ Ishan Agarwal In terms of the battery, the OnePlus 8 Pro is said to pack a 4,510mAh unit with support for up to 30W Warp Charging. This time around, the OnePlus 8 Pro is also said to have wireless charging and an IP rating. OnePlus 8 The OnePlus 8 will also be powered by the same processor and is expected to come with the same amount of RAM and storage. As for the display, the OnePlus 8 will obviously be a little smaller and hence it'll sport a 6.55-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. © Twitter/ Ishan Agarwal As for the cameras, the OnePlus 8 is said to sport a triple-camera setup which will include a 48MP sensor, a 16MP sensor, and a 2MP sensor. It'll have a 4,300mAh battery with support for 30W Warp charging, but there's no mention of wireless charging. It looks like the OnePlus 8 will also miss out on the IP rating. All this is making the OnePlus 8 Pro look like a way better phone with major upgrades. Also, Oppo's Find series phones usually give us a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming OnePlus phones. So looking at the new Oppo Find X2, we think the OnePlus 8 Pro and the OnePlus 8 will indeed be something to look forward to. Exclusive: They're coming! Here is the full specification list of the #OnePlus8 & 8 Pro. Seems like #OnePlus8Pro is gonna be a beast with 6.78" 120hz QHD+ Display and 48+48+8+5MP Camera Setup. Will have 30W Wireless Charging & IP68 Rating too. I'm so excited! #OnePlus8Series pic.twitter.com/j1AAo19q4J â Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) March 25, 2020 As mentioned before, we don't know when these phones will hit the market. There's a global pandemic going on right now, so it's safe to say that these phones won't be arriving anytime soon. Note: The header & social images are for representation only. That's not the final design of the upcoming OnePlus phones. View the full article
  7. Xiaomi has been upping its game for their number 1 selling smartphone the Redmi Note series. Nobody expected the company to launch a new Redmi Note phone, seven months after the launch of the Redmi Note 8 series. With the Redmi Note 9 Pro, Xiaomi is attempting to redefine what budget smartphones can do and we've been testing the smartphone to find out if the company has managed to achieve it. Design and Display © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Redmi Note 9 Pro looks nothing like its predecessor and its nice to see Xiaomi experimenting with the design of the phone. The smartphone has a glass black with the signature aurora blue colour that is a bit shiny for our personal taste but isn't too gaudy. This time around the smartphone feels more premium than ever before and can easily be mistaken for a mid-budget smartphone. At the back, there is also a protruding square-shaped camera module that houses all the sensors. We weren't particularly big fans of the protruding camera module and advise using the supplied case to offset the massive bump. Overall, the design of the smartphone is quite appealing and is quite minimal when it comes to any sort of branding. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The one thing missing from the back that has been a regular feature on Redmi Note phones is the fingerprint sensor. This time, Xiaomi has embedded the fingerprint sensor on the power button to maintain a uniform look at the back. We loved this idea and want other smartphone companies to use the same method. An in-display fingerprint sensor is not entirely accurate and fast enough to unlock smartphone when you need them to and this solution works perfectly. We've seen it before on the POCO X2 and love the fact it made a return on the Redmi Note 9 Pro. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In the display department, the Redmi Note 9 Pro comes with a 6.67-inch IPS LCD display that feels way bigger than we thought. The larger screen makes it a bit difficult to use the phone with one hand. To put things into perspective, I can grip and hold a basketball with one hand. In reality, the large display isn't really a big deal if you like to watch movies and play games on your phone. The larger display is great for immersing yourself into content but you will have to sacrifice a bit of usability for the larger screen. The display has a resolution of 2,400x1080p and has great viewing angles for an IPS unit. For a budget-friendly phone, we really like the quality of the display and the colour representation. Of course, it isn't as good as a Super AMOLED or AMOLED displays but they do tend to be much more expensive as well. It runs at 60Hz which was expected as the processor isn't really powerful enough to sustain higher refresh rates. It puts unnecessary stress on the CPU and the battery and to be honest, not many games out there support higher refresh rates. Performance The Redmi Note 9 Pro is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 720G chipsets that also has support for NavIC GPS system. The processor is coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. We've been using the 6GB RAM model during the course of our review and did not come across any major issues. At first, the Play Store did keep crashing on us but that was later fixed after an OTA update. While the Snapdragon 720G chipset is more than enough to carry out daily tasks, you will have to run your games on lower settings for optimum performance. We could easily run PUBG mobile on medium settings but would notice some frame rate drops when switching to higher settings. While the chipset does offer good gaming performance, it does not match up the Redmi K200 series. For a budget smartphone, this level of performance was expected but it is still impressive for a phone that costs almost half of mid-tier phones. When it comes to benchmark scores, the Redmi Note 9 Pro scored 568 (single-core) and 1625 (multi-core) on Geekbench 5. In comparison, it is faster than the OnePlus 6T and Poco F1. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In terms of battery life, the Note 9 Pro comes with a 5,020mAh unit which lasts for about 1.5 days even with moderate and heavy usage. We used the smartphone for navigation, gaming, video consumption and web browsing and still couldn't manage to kill the battery entirely. Xiaomi also enabled 18W PD fast charging on the smartphone and it comes with a fast charger out of the box. Cameras © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Like the Redmi Note 8 Pro, the new iteration also comes with multiple lenses, including a 48MP primary camera, 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 5MP macro camera and 2MP depth camera for Bokeh shots. The camera delivered some great shots, given the price of the smartphone. It was able to capture some spectacular 64MP shots while portrait images have noticeably improved from before. The macro-lens, on the other hand, had a spotty performance where it could not capture details at times and sometimes could not focus on the subject. However, when it works, you can capture shots of subjects really close up but do not expect it to be as good as flagship phones. When using in low-light, the Redmi Note 9 Pro does not fare well as pictures lose most of their details. You can get it to work better if there is a source of light. Night mode on the Note 9 Pro also needs a bit of improvement as we found it to work better on the Redmi Note 8 Pro. It just needs a bit more tweaking and can hopefully be improved with an update in the near future. The Final Say When considering everything that is on the table, the Redmi Note 9 Pro is a perfect budget-friendly smartphone that will perform well for most people. It doesn't do a good job at delivering competent pictures in daylight and could be better in low-light conditions too. However, if you are looking for a phone that isn't too heavy on the pocket but does everything you expect from a smartphone, the Redmi Note 9 is a solid choice to consider for Rs 12,999.

  8. Yesterday, Apple announced a couple of new additions to both its iPad as well as the MacBook family of products. The new iPad Pro comes with an optional new keyboard case with a trackpad. It's called the Magic keyboard and will cost you a ton of money. That said, the Magic Keyboard looks like a very promising piece of hardware that makes deciding between the iPad Pro and the new MacBook Air a lot harder. You're essentially looking at two similarly sized portable devices. And they both have a keyboard and a trackpad too if you buy the Magic Keyboard for the iPad. View the full article
  9. Apple just unveiled the latest iPad Pro that comes with new features that will change the way we use the tablet altogether. The new iPad Pro comes with new camera hardware and support for trackpads similar to MacBooks by the Cupertino giant. The new iPad Pro gets an additional ultra-wide camera lens and new mics for better call quality. It even comes with is own LiDAR scanner that is capable of giving better depth-sensing capabilities. It will be supported by pro photo and video apps for the iPad. © Apple In an upcoming iPadOS update, Apple will be extending support for a trackpad, bringing in a whole new way of using the iPad. It takes Apple one step closer to converting the iPad Pro into a credible replacement for a laptop. The trackpad will also support Multi-Touch gestures similar to MacBooks, making it easier for users to navigate and multitask on the iPad Pro. All of this will be possible, thanks to a new Magic Keyboard that has the trackpad in-built for using with the iPad Pro. The Magic Keyboard even has a backlit keyboard making it easier to type in dim environments. The new accessory will be available later this year in May. © Apple âThe new iPad Pro introduces advanced technologies never before available in mobile computing,â said Phil Schiller, Appleâs senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. âCombining the most advanced mobile display with powerful performance, pro cameras, pro audio, the breakthrough LiDAR Scanner and new Magic Keyboard with Trackpad, this is another huge leap forward for iPad. Thereâs no other device in the world like the new iPad Pro and we think our customers are going to love it.â âWeâre making iPad even more capable and versatile by bringing trackpad support to iPadOS,â said Craig Federighi, Appleâs senior vice president of Software Engineering. âWe carefully considered the best way to integrate trackpad use into a touch-first environment while retaining everything our customers know and love about the iPad. Weâre thrilled to bring this new way of interacting with iPad to the millions of people using iPadOS today.â © Apple The new iPad Pro will be powered by appleâs A12Z Bionic chip to make it the most powerful tablet ever. It has an eight-core GPU capable of delivering console-level graphics in games and an improved thermal architecture to prevent throttling. It is also capable of editing 4K videos and 3D models for graphic designers and animators. Also, it can last up to 10 hours on a single charge, now. The display on the new iPad Pro will be somewhat similar to its predecessor as it will be available in both 11 and 12.9-inches. The display has a refresh rate of 120Hz and will automatically adjust depending on your activity. © Apple The new LiDAR scanner is a new addition to the camera module that will users measure objects up to 5m away. It works in both outdoor and indoor environments. The new scanner promises to deliver a new way to experience augmented reality as it uses data from both the cameras and motion sensors. The new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro will be available in silver and space grey colours and will start from Rs 71900 for the Wi-Fi model and Rs 85900 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro will start from Rs 89900 for the Wi-Fi model and Rs 103900 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model. Both iPad Pro models are expected to be available soon in India. The Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro will be available for purchase in May for Rs 27900 for the 11-inch iPad Pro and Rs 31900 for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. View the full article
  10. OnePlus is expected to launch the OnePlus 8 Series soon and weâve already heard plenty of rumours about the upcoming smartphones. But the latest piece of information that comes about the new phones is a picture of Robert Downey Junior holding a OnePlus phone. © Instagram/RDJ Fanpage The picture shows the Hollywood star holding the OnePlus 8 Pro while on a set of a movie. The picture shows the phone having a vertical camera module that is in line with previous leaks of the phone. Weâve already heard about OnePlus launching three phones this year one of them being a budget-friendly âLiteâ version of the phone. The flagship smartphones are expected to have the Snapdragon 865 chipset, a 120HZ refresh rate display and a punch-hole camera. The smartphone will also be 5G ready thanks to the new chipset by Qualcomm. © Instagram/RDJ Fanpaage Thereâs also a good chance that one of the models will also have support for wireless charging as the Chinese company joined the Wireless Power Consortium recently. OnePlus joining the consortium is a huge hint that at least one of their products will have some form of wireless charging. Previous rumours have suggested that the new OnePlus smartphone may support 30W wireless fast charging. The new OnePlus smartphones are expected to launch sometime in April and the final models of the phone also appeared on Chinese telecoms regulatory agency TENAA. It has the model number OnePlus IN2010 for the OnePlus 8 and IN2020 for the 8 Pro. View the full article
  11. Xiaomi has launched the new Redmi Note 9 series in India today. Both the Redmi Note 9 Pro and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max are more or less similar to each other with minimal changes. But for the sake of this comparison, we'll be comparing the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max with the Realme 6 Pro, because they're priced very similarly. Specifications Both the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max and the Realme 6 Pro are powered by the Snapdragon 720G processor coupled with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. We haven't had the chance to pit both phones head to head, but we doubt if there'll be any significant difference in performance. In terms of build & design, #RedmiNote9ProMax packs a MAX experience! - Triple #CorningGorillaGlass 5 - 16.9cm (6.67) FHD+ DotDisplay Camera - Aura Balance Design - 3.5mm Headphone Jack - IR Blaster - Side-mounted Fingerprint Sensor Now on to cameras! #ProCamerasMaxPerformance! pic.twitter.com/HhbhamrmjW â Redmi India (@RedmiIndia) March 12, 2020 When it comes to the physical size, there's not a lot of difference between the screen sizes of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max and the Realme 6 Pro. We're looking at a 6.6-inch IPS panel in case of the Realme 6 Pro and a 6.67-inch IPS panel on the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. But I'd like to point out that the Realme 6 Pro has 90Hz panel, whereas the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max has a refresh rate of 60Hz. It would've been nice to see a high-refresh-rate panel on the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max as well, but it looks like the Realme 6 Pro is the way to go if you want a high refresh rate panel. Both devices have a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front covering the display, so that's good. Cameras When it comes to photography, both phones sport a quad-camera setup at the back. The Realme 6 Pro's setup includes a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 12MP telephoto lens, and a 2MP macro lens. The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, on the other hand, sports a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer On the front, the Realme 6 Pro sports a dual selfie camera setup which includes a 16MP wide-angle camera and an 8MP Ultra wide-angle lens. The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max only sports a single camera on the front i.e. a 32MP selfie shooter. We haven't had the chance to test out the cameras, so you'll have to wait for our full review of the phone first to see how the cameras on the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max performs. Battery The Realme 6 Pro packs a 4,300mAh battery inside with support for 30W Flash Charge via the charger that's included inside the box. During our usage, our Realme 6 Pro unit managed to last easily for a day even with moderate to heavy usage. Introducing the incredible quad cameras of #RedmiNote9ProMax - 64MP Primary Camera - 8MP Ultra Wide-Angle Camera, - 5MP Macro Camera - 2MP Depth Sensor. Make every shot an eye-grabbing one. Which one are you excited to try out? #ProCamerasMaxPerformance pic.twitter.com/5JBq4qVjFX â Redmi India (@RedmiIndia) March 12, 2020 The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max sports a 5,020mAh battery with support for 33W charging via the charger that's included inside the box. Given the higher mAh count on the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max with support for faster charging, we think it'll be better than Realme 6 Pro. That being said, software optimization also plays a huge role when it comes to battery life, so I'll reserve our judgment on this for now. Pricing & Models Both the Realme 6 Pro and the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max are offered in three variants i.e. 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 128GB. While the Realme 6 Pro starts at Rs 16,999, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max starts at Rs 14,999. However, the top-end variant of both the phones are priced at Rs 18,999. On paper, both phones match each other neck to neck. The Realme 6 Pro seems like it's got a little bit of an edge over the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max with its 90Hz display, dual selfie cameras, 20X zoom and more. But I suggest you stay tuned for our full review of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max to see how good or bad it is in the real world. In the meantime, you can check out our review of the Realme 6 Pro to learn more about it. View the full article
  12. Realme has been churning out phones after phones, most of which have been budget-friendly devices. But, nobody expected Realme to launch a 5G smartphone in India this soon, that too with flagship-level specifications. Realme has managed to overtake some of the biggest smartphone players in the Indian market with smartphones that appeal to every type of user. And their latest product, the Realme X50 Pro offers everything you can expect from a flagship smartphone in 2020. It offers a great chipset, 5G connectivity, decent camera and out of this world fast charging features. Here's our review of the Realme X50 Pro after using the smartphone for over two weeks since its launch. Design and Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The design of the smartphone is, by far, the marquee feature of the smartphone with a brushed matte finish for the back. It comes in two colours i.e. Moss Green and Rust Red where both colours are not too bright and have a slight black tint to them. The brushed finish feels ultra-premium and in our opinion, is one of the finer feeling smartphone body frames out there. It feels more premium than the Samsung Galaxy S20 and does not have that cheap plastic feel since the frame is made out of aluminium. The phone is a bit heavy in the hand due to the additional internals for 5G connectivity. These antennas need more reinforcing than most 4G phones due to which there is some added weight. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack which means you will not be able to use your wired headphones and even though there is no headphone jack, the phone does not come with an IP rating. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The smartphone has a 6.44-inch display with a camera cutout on the top left corner that houses the two front-facing cameras. The display has a refresh rate of 90Hz and is certified for HDR10+ content. Having a 90Hz refresh rate display can result in faster and smoother scrolling, and animations. However, it doesn't feel as fast or smooth as a OnePlus phone at the moment. The display quality, meanwhile, is up to the mark as other flagship smartphones. It has the right colour balance and deep blacks when watching content on streaming platforms. The colour accuracy could be a bit better as we noticed some differences when compared to other AMOLED panels. Lastly, the display has an in-built fingerprint scanner that is fast enough to unlock the smartphone even with the pre-applied screen protector. Cameras © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The camera arrangement on the X50 Pro is at par with modern-day standards too as it comes with a 64MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP wide-angle camera with 119-degree field of view, a 12MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom and 20x hybrid zoom and finally a 2MP mono portrait lens. What's interesting is that the 8MP wide-angle camera can also be used as a macro sensor which lets you get close to subjects as close as 3cm. At the front, the X50 Pro comes with a 32MP wide-angle camera and an 8MP ultra-wide lens, giving users the flexibility of taking group selfies shots. Like other Realme smartphones, the X50 Pro comes with a night mode as well that lets people take brighter images in the dark. In terms of camera performance, the X50 Pro was not really on the level of most flagship phones, but was still able to capture some decent images. In daylight, the camera performed well up to expectations, however it struggled in the night imagery. While using night mode, we noticed the software took an awful amount of time to process the image and the results were not consistent. When using the ultra-wide camera, the image feels more like it was captured with a fish-eye lens. It seems like the final camera software will be updated in the near future and we might see an improvement in that department all across the board. Performance The Realme X50 Pro comes with flagship-level specifications such as Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chipset, up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB UFS 3.0 storage. Since there are no 5G towers in India yet, we could not test the 5G features of the phone. The smartphone comes with WiFi 6 capabilities and India's new NaviC GPS system. During the course of our review, the Realme X50 Pro managed to perform well with efficient battery life and no app crashes or bugs. With multiple apps running in the background, we used the phone for navigation, capturing images, streaming music and movies and playing Battle Royale games. We were able to run PUBG mobile on max settings and there were no frame rate drops during our short time playing the game. The phone did overheat a bit, but did not cause any worries. The marquee feature of the smartphone is its fast charging capabilities as it is capable of charging at 65W. We were able to fully charge the smartphone from 2% to 100% in about 30 minutes. The Realme X50 Pro comes with a 4,200mAh battery which is quite remarkable when considering the fast charging speed of the phone. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Snapdragon 865 Chipset is also quite efficient when compared to its predecessor and on the Realm X50 Pro, it lived up to our expectations. In a simple Geekbench 5 test, the X50 Pro scored 882 on the single-core test and 3317 in the multi-core test. The Final Say © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Starting at Rs 37,999, the Realme X50 Pro is a great value proposition when considering what you get in return. It comes with the latest of all hardware and 5G connectivity for a price that won't be matched by most other smartphone companies. While the camera performance is not as reliable, everything else works great on the smartphone. With a premium design and great hardware, the X50 Pro offers the best of both worlds.

  13. Probably the best way to get to know more about future Apple products is by digging the beta codes of iOS. In the latest iOS 14 code, not only is the iPhone 9 all but confirmed, but a few of the new features of the upcoming smartphone have also been revealed. The iPhone 9 (aka iPhone SE 2) will apparently have many features that were previously rumoured. © iGeekBlog Based on the code, the iPhone 9 is set to bring back Touch ID which was first introduced on the iPhone 5 several years ago. It will also have a new feature called Express Transit which can be used to pay for rides. The information comes from 9to5Mac and the report also details other products Apple is expected to launch later this month. While Apple is expected to announce the new phone soon, there are multiple reports that the iPhone 9 may get delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak by a few months. The iPhone 9 is rumoured to feature a 4.7-inch display and will come at a very affordable price. © Unsplash-Kelly Sikkema The code also revealed a new iPad Pro that will be launching alongside the iPhone 9, however this time it will feature a triple-camera setup. It is expected to have a wide lens, ultra-wide sensor and a telephoto lens. The new iPad Pro is also expected to have an additional ToF (time of flight) sensor for a more accurate and better AR (augmented reality) experience. © Martin Engel Other rumours have also suggested Apple is working on a new Apple TV box which was rumoured to launch alongside the iPhone 11. The iOS 14 code mentions a new Apple TV remote control and 9to5Mac reports that the new Apple TV will also be more powerful and faster than its predecessor. © Macrumors Lastly, the iOS 14 code also mentions Appleâs new tracking devices called AirTags. It will work similar to Tile trackers that let you attach the device to your belongings and can be tracked via the âFind Myâ app. Users will be able to find these air trackers via sound and augmented reality.

  14. Realme has been doing some amazing work behind the scenes to bring some of the phones in the market. Last year, the Realme 5 series was a hit for the company, and now they're back with the Realme 6 series, with major upgrades across the board. Today, I'll be talking about the Realme 6 Pro and tell you why I love this phone. I've been using the Realme 6 Pro as my primary phone for quite some time now and I think it's currently the best phone to buy in the market if your budget is under Rs. 20,000. 1. Design & Build Quality I've said this in the past and I'll say it again - Realme makes some of the most beautiful looking phones in the market right now. The Realme 6 Pro doesn't have a glass back, but it looks absolutely stunning. It's a mixture of glass and plastic. So it's not the most premium-feeling material in the world, but it'll definitely attract some eyeballs. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer As you can see, I've been using the "Lightning Blue" variant of the phone and it's got this crazy lighting design at the back. The orange variant also looks equally stunning in my opinion. The phone has got a decent weight to it and it has all the necessary features that you'd expect from a phone like a USB Type C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack and more. There's a quad-camera setup at the back with minimal Realme branding. The fingerprint scanner has been moved to the side of the phone, and I think it's a great move. The Realme 6 Pro has a single firing speaker at the bottom and it supports Dolby Atmos hi-res audio quality. You can also add a micro SD card to expand the storage, which is great. Overall, I have nothing but good things to say about the Realme 6 Pro's design and build quality. Good job, Realme! 2. Display The display is one of my favourite features of the Realme 6 Pro and I think that's what kept me from switching to a different device even after my testing period. You're looking at a 6.6-inch FHD+ IPS panel with support for a 90Hz refresh rate. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Yes, it's not an AMOLED panel like the one found on the Galaxy M31. So you're probably going to miss seeing deep blacks and punchy colors on the screen. That being said, the high-refresh rate, especially in this price range, will definitely make up for it. The display is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and it also has a punch-hole cutout for the dual selfie cameras. The display looks modern thanks to the punch-hole cutout and low bezels, and the high refresh rate is just icing on the cake. During my usage, I found that the panel manages to hold a high refresh rate without any issues. It also gets decently bright to use outdoors. If you've never used a high-refresh-rate panel before, then you must check this out. It's a feature that we don't see often in mid-range phones, and it's a great way to make more people experience the 90Hz refresh rate. I am sure you'll love interacting with the phone using this display. 3. Performance The Realme 6 Pro is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 720G processor which is specifically built for phones in this price range. I am not going to throw in some crazy numbers and specs of the processor, but I'll just say that it's a great processor. The processor is coupled with up to 12GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. I've been using the high-end variant of the phone for testing and the performance is pretty impressive. You absolutely don't need to worry about the performance. This is one of those phones that can handle anything you throw at it. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Mid-range phones have gotten a lot better over the years and the Realme 6 Pro with the Snapdragon 720G is pushing it further at this point. This is currently the phone powered by this particular processor, so we'll have more comparisons when other phones drop in the market. Realme has also optimized the software on this phone very well. Together, both the hardware and the software manages to give you a solid performance while using the phone. The Realme 6 Pro runs Realme UI out of the box that's based on Android 10. This is the latest version of Andriod out there on the market, so it's good that you're getting the best in the business. I did notice some glitches from time to time while the phone though. For instance, the software would just freeze on me while using a particular, forcing me to close the app altogether and start over again. I think this is something that they can fix with future updates, but I think I should mention that in the review. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer As for gaming, I did play a couple of games of PUBG Mobile and Call OF Duty Mobile on the Realme 6 Pro and it was pretty good. The 90Hz display definitely helps with gaming on supported titles. But it's safe to say that the phone can handle almost all the titles without any stutters. 4. Camera The Realme 6 Pro sports a quad-camera setup at the back which includes a 64MP primary sensor made by Samsung. It's coupled with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 12MP telephoto lens, and a 2MP macro lens. On the front, there are two cameras for selfies. One is a normal 16MP wide-angle lens, whereas the other one is an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens. As you can see, the phone has a pretty versatile set of cameras. So how's the performance? Well, here are some samples that I managed to shoot while testing the phone over a few days- I'd say the images shot during the day with enough light turned out pretty well. There's a lot of details to zoom into thanks to that 64MP sensor and the dynamic range is also good. You can also use the ultra-wide lens to get more of the scene into the frame, but it's not as good as the other sensors. Thanks to the new 2X and 5X zoom modes, you can close in on the subject like never before on a Realme phone. It comes handy but I won't recommend using the 5x zoom mode unless you have a tripod. As for the nigh mode pictures, they're pretty decent. The images will definitely come out better at night while using a tripod, but I managed to get some sweet shots even without one. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Overall, I think the Realme 6 Pro has really good cameras. Obviously, it's not competing with the flagships out there, but I think it's one of the best sets of cameras that you can get in this price range. 5. Battery Life The Realme 6 Pro packs a 4,300 mAh battery under the hood that keeps the lights on. The battery also comes with 30W Flash Charge support, which is great. During my usage, believe it or not, I was getting over 7 hours on screen-on time on a single charge, which insane. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Even if moderate to heavy usage, I think this phone will last easily for a day. And as I said, it comes with fast charge support, so you don't have to worry about charging times too. I was able to charge the phone for just an hour and get a lot of juice. 6. The Final Say The Realme 6 Pro starts at Rs 16,999 for the base variant and goes all the way up to Rs 18,999 for the high-end variant. So even if you're going for the high-end variant of the phone with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, you'll be shelling out less than Rs 20,000. At that price, you're essentially getting a beautiful-looking device with great features like a 90Hz panel, good performance (thanks to Snapdragon 720G SoC), impressive battery life, and a versatile set of cameras. It's crazy how you can get so many cool features on a phone that costs less than Rs. 20,000. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Realme 6 Pro is directly competing with the Poco X2. While there are a lot of good things to say about the Poco X2 as well, we like what Realme has done with the Realme 6 Pro to make a well-rounded phone. I am just going to wrap this up by saying that the Realme 6 Pro is one of the best mid-range phones I've used in a while, which is why I am not going to hesitate to recommend it to anybody who's looking to buy a phone under Rs. 20,000.

  15. We have often seen Rajkummar Rao wearing some really interesting footwear. From a pair of sneakers that looked like they were legit space boots, to one of the classiest pairs of high top boots, clearly, when it comes to shoes, the man doesnât mess about. One can always count on him to lay down some serious footwear goals, whether it is a zany pair of sneaker that youâre looking for, or for something else. © Instagram/rajkummar_rao Well, Rajkummar, it seems to have outdone his own zany footwear choices, by wearing one of quirkiest pairs of sneakers we have seen. What makes his sneakers quirky, you ask? Well, they come with their own jewellery and embellishments. © Viral Bhayani But first, letâs get to his outfit. Rajkummar is wearing a seemingly basic t-shirt from Dsquared2. Although the t-shirt may seem basic, it actually has a few nifty touches here and there that make it a little quirky. The shoulders, for example, are very subtly distressed. The rest of the torso as well has those distress marks. Just to get an idea of how exquisite the t-shirt exactly is, consider this - they are listed for about $145 or just under Rs 11,000. Yup; Rs 11,000 for a t-shirt. © Viral Bhayani The denims too are quirky. They are ripped from the knees and have a very aggressive wash. On top of the aggressive wash, they also have a very light bleaching as well. The denim jeans do look good on Rajkummar, we must say. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the highlight of the ensemble, the sneakers that Rajkummar is wearing. They are the #54 LV Trainer Sneakers from the Paris based luxury retailers, Louis Vuitton. The sneakers are based on your run of the mill, vintage baseball sneakers, and have a flat construction. © Louis Vuitton As far as the materials and construction is concerned, the Virgil Abloh designed piece ticks all the boxes that come with high fashion item - exquisite materials all around, a rich heritage to call back one, and the name of a designer that has a cult following. © Hypebeast So exquisite are the pieces, that they have embellishments of their own. Around the heel of the outsole, youâll see three micro-inserts, that add a very distinct characteristic to the sneakers. © Louis Vuitton Such an exquisite pair of sneakers will surely be expensive. Just how expensive, you ask? Well, they are listed for $1,200, or just under Rs 90,000. Add to that your regular set of import duties and customs, and youâre looking at a figure thatâs well over Rs 1.20 Lakhs. © Viral Bhayani Rajkummar surely does know how to pick some really exquisite sneakers, doesnât he?

  16. OnePlus has been away from the news for a while now as the spotlights have turned towards other Chinese OEMs like Xiaomi, Realme, and IQOO. But it looks like OnePlus is ready with its next phone and it has already landed in the hands of some people in China. Earlier this morning, someone from China posted a couple of the OnePlus 8 Pro pictures on Instagram. The images confirm a couple of things. First, we can see the phone from the back and it has a new quad-camera setup instead of the triple camera setup we saw last year. We don't have details about all the sensors yet, but the new addition seems to be a ToF sensor. © Slashleaks It's a vertical camera setup with the three main cameras arranged one below the other. The ToF sensor is right next to the triple camera setup. There's no way to confirm if the images are legit, but the design matches the CAD renders that leaked earlier. Another set of images from the same leaker shows a screenshot of the settings page showing the phone's specs. Looking at the screenshot, it looks like the OnePlus 8 Pro will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and will have up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. It also says that the phone will have a 6.65-inch 120Hz Fluid AMOLED panel. © Slashleaks Well, that's everything we know about the phone now. As mentioned earlier, there's no way to confirm the specifications just yet, so we suggest you take them with a pinch of salt. But now that the phone has leaked, we think the launch is imminent. OnePlus hasn't uttered a word about these new phones yet, but we think we'll be hearing from them very soon. Source: Slashleaks View the full article
  17. "How much RAM is too much RAM?" Okay, that's probably not something everybody would search on Google, but PC and specs nerds like me have done it at least once. I mean, that's really a crucial question, especially in a world where even smartphones have up to 16GB RAM. Anyway, did you know that you can buy Apple's Mac Pro with up to 1.5TB of RAM? Yes, it's 1.5TB of RAM. That's way more than the storage capacity of most people's systems these days. That's exactly the kind of monster that Apple has built here. © YouTube/ Jonathan Morrison So what would you do if you have 1.5TB of RAM in your system? Well, for starters, how about opening 6,000 tabs in Google Chrome? At least that's what this YouTube creator did. YouTuber Jonathan Morrison wanted to see what it would take to max out his Mac Pro with 1.5TB of RAM. So he did the most obvious thing that anyone in their right minds would do. He wrote an automated script to run a bunch of websites on a loop. The end result is a fully decked out Google Chrome with 6,000 tabs. First of all, I am even surprised that Google Chrome can handle that without crashing on when you get past the 100 Chrome tabs. But spoiler alert, both the Mac Pro and Google Chrome handled the task very well before giving up. I'd say you can easily open about 5,000 tabs in Google Chrome without any issues. But anything above that, you're treading on dangerous grounds. © YouTube/ Jonathan Morrison Now, you're probably wondering how much it would cost to fit 1.5TB RAM in a Mac Pro. After all, even the base model of Mac Pro will trigger kidney jokes here in India. But don't worry. As long as you're not asking Apple to do it, you'll be spending less. You'll have to go for a third-party option like Morrison did. That being said, it could still be very expensive. View the full article
  18. Whether you look at the latest flagship phones by Apple, Samsung, Huawei or even Xiaomi, there is one thing common amongst these devices - wireless charging. OnePlus has been avoiding this feature up until now but it looks like the company may just bring that feature for the OnePlus 8 Pro variant. Charge like a pro. pic.twitter.com/Fqnkpsa0mT â Max J. (@Samsung_News_) January 21, 2020 A tweet by tipster Max J. Suggests that the upcoming âProâ variant of the OnePlus 8 may come with the new feature. While the tweet didnât really clearly say that the smartphone will come with the feature, it does drop a huge hint that point towards the same. He tweeted a second image of a smartphone being charged by a wireless charging pad that looks somewhat similar to a OnePlus smartphone. Of course, he clears the air in a second tweet by saying that the image is just a concept image for illustration purposes. There have been previous rumours that suggested OnePlus would bring wireless charging to one of the models but nothing concrete has confirmed the information yet. © BCCL If the feature does make its way to a OnePlus smartphone this year, it would truly be the complete flagship smartphone OnePlus has been striving for. OnePlus has avoided wireless charging as it prefers the faster wired charging that comes in the form of warp charge which charges the OnePlus 7 and 7T series at 30W. Having said that, there is nothing preventing OnePlus from implementing both features apart from the obvious rise in cost. This also means that if wireless charging is a major feature on the next OnePlus phone, you can expect the price to be higher than 2019âs OnePlus Pro smartphones. © YouTube/Techdroider Of course, it is obvious that none of this is confirmed information and is purely based on speculation. We advise you to take this with a pinch of salt until OnePlus makes it official closer to launch of the next smartphone. View the full article

  20. The Nintendo Switch has been having a very successful run ever since it launched in 2017 and the console will probably dominate in 2020 as well. Even in India, the console has managed to outsell the Xbox One, even though the Nintendo Switch does not officially sell in India. According to the MakoReactor, “Industry estimates peg the Nintendo Switch lifetime to date sales to be above 50,000 in India” and this is based on a conservative estimate. © Dbrand/Youtube However, in 2020, both Microsoft and Sony will be launching their next generation of consoles by Christmas and Nintendo will have to introduce a new updated console to keep the competition heated. It has been long rumoured that Nintendo has been working on a “Pro” and “Lite” model where the latter launched in late 2019. The analyst who accurately predicted the “Lite” model of the Nintendo Switch believes the “Pro” model will launch sometime in 2020. "Switch will again be the best selling console during the year," says Piers Harding-Rolls of IHS Markit Technology, who has been speaking to gamesindustry.biz. He went on to say that "2020 is also set to be Switch's best hardware sales performance since launch. The Switch Lite will launch in mainland China.” © Youtube It is currently uncertain when the Pro model of the Nintendo Switch will launch, however, we can expect to see upgraded hardware for better performance in games. “There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Nintendo will launch a "Switch Pro" in 2020, my guess is at $399,” said Harding-Rolls. "More specifically, I predict 4K support, bigger cartridge sizes, and of course beefed-up components. I also think the device will launch after the summer holidays to counter the roll-out of the PS5 and next-gen Xbox later in the year - along with a first-party, system-seller game.

At the moment, Switch's Tegra X1 processor can't really keep up with the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One due to which the “Pro” model might be in the works. The Switch model will be able to even out this difference with better hardware. Having said that, it is possible that the next console may be a dedicated console-only box and not offer the portability feature. Sure, it may not suit the “Switch” name but the Switch Lite already breaks the branding as it cannot be docked. It remains to be seen when Nintendo plans to launch the new console or whether these are all rumours and it simply does not exist. As of now, we can only speculate what the console could be and wait for the official announcement later this year. Source: gamesindustry.biz View the full article
  21. Apple's new Mac Pro desktop machine just recently went on sale in India and it can cost you as much as Rs 38 Lakh. If that's not enough to leave your eyes wide open, then wait till you hear about the new Pro Display XDR. In case you remember, Apple also launched a new monitor to go along with the new Mac Pro machine. It's called the Pro Display XDR, and it's one of the best displays Apple has ever made. After the Mac Pro machine, Apple has now started selling the new Pro Display XDR in India, and it's just as expensive as we thought it would be. © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee Pricing and AvailabilityApple is going to sell the base variant of the Pro Display XDR for Rs 4,49,900. Yes, it's a monitor that costs Rs 4.5 Lakh. The base variant of the monitor comes with a standard glass on the front. If you want the one with a nano-textured glass, then it'll cost you Rs 5,29,900. It's also worth pointing out that the Pro Display XDR will not ship with a stand. Yes, you'll have to buy it separately and it'll cost you another Rs 91,900. We are trying very hard to resist kidney jokes here! But jokes aside, both the Mac Pro machine and the Pro Display XDR are made for professionals. Both the Mac Pro and the 6k monitor, as you probably already know, is overkill for an average user. Whereas for professionals and artists working on movies, shoots, music, etc. it's an ideal system that's going to keep up with their workload for a very long time. View the full article
