Asus and Flipkart announced their new partnership on stage- a long term deal to sell Asus phones exclusively on Flipkart. Along with it, they also announced the launch of ZenFone Max Pro which will be exclusively available on Flipkart. The sale of the Zenfone Max Pro will commence from 12:30 PM on April 23, Monday.

Along with the Zenfone Max Pro, Asus and Flipkart have signed a Memorandum of Understanding(MoU) to collaborate on new products specifically designed for the Indian market. Both the companies are set to extensively support each other in planning cum execution of the marketing of the upcoming Zenfone models.

The phone is expected to come with a Snapdragon 636 chipset, an under clocked  version of the Snapdragon 660.Other than this, there isn’t much on the plate that we know of. Details regarding the smartphone are skim as they haven’t announced the price and quarter of the specifications.

But we expect the phone to come with the same design as that of Asus Zenfone Max (M1), which was announced at MWC earlier this year.

This is not the first time Asus partnered with Flipkart for the launch of it’s smartphones. Back in 2014, Asus tied up with Flipkart exclusively to sell the Zenfone lineup which was a huge success in the mid-range segment until Xiaomi took over the market. “With Flipkart’s partnership, we aim to gain more insights about Indian consumers”Asus CEO Jerry Shen said in a press statement.

Going forward, Asus is expected to come up with more smartphones for the mid-range sector. Flipkart on the other hand, uneviled plans called “Mobiles 40 by 20″ which can be translated to 40% of the overall smartphone sales in the Indian market by 2020, put roughly a 100 million new customers.

Ironically, Asus’s partnership is coming at a time when Amazon decided to announce the Oneplus 6 exclusively on it’s platform. Flipkart, India’s homegrown e tailer is facing cut throat competition from the global leader Amazon. Nobody has an upper hand in the market right now, considering the amount of money being burnt day in and day out. Partnerships like these could go a long way in deciding the winner in the end.

Microsoft prepares to End support for Windows 10 Mobile this Year




Windows mobile

When Nokia launched the Lumia range of smartphones running on the Windows operating system years ago, they made quiet a wave. Later, Microsoft took over and continued the production of the Lumia from Nokia. The Lumia range of smartphones did find a lot of buyers and had some of the finest smartphones of the time.

But, Microsoft couldn’t keep up with the Android and iOS trends and eventually died out. Now reports states that Microsoft is preparing to end support for the Windows 10 Mobile by the end of this year.

Microsoft has asked the users of Windows 10 mobiles to switch to an Android or iOS device as it announced the end of support for Windows 10 Mobile. The news doesn’t come as a surprise as Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President of Windows 10, had made clear that they wont be focusing on new features or hardware for Windows 10 Mobile back in 2017.

In an “End of Support” page, the tech giant told users that Windows 10 Mobile will stop receiving new security updates after December 10. While the news was expected, it comes as a blow as several peoples are still using the windows mobile across the world, owing to its build quality and performance.

“With the Windows 10 Mobile OS end of support, we recommend that customers move to a supported Android or iOS device. Microsoft’s mission statement to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, compels us to support our Mobile apps on those platforms and devices,” the company wrote in the support page late on Friday.

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) scrapped as many as 36,000 windows mobiles used by the law enforcers back in 2017 after Microsoft acknowledged that it’s support will be ending. In an other statement, Microsoft also made clear that their Virtual Assistant Cortana is no longer in direct competition with Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa.

Redmi Note 7, the first phone from the newly formed sub brand “Redmi” was launched 2 days ago. But they missed out announcing an important feature of the phone. Xiaomi President Lei Jun shared in his official weibo account that Redmi Note 7’s uses a design in which it’s buttons are waterproof and interfaces too.

According to Lei, the Redmi Note 7 supports dust and splash protection just like the OnePlus 6/6T. The R&D team did detailed work, including I/O port seal design, switch & USB waterproof seal, speaker double-layer dust-proof design, independent earpiece sealing, and front-facing sealing rubber sleeve.

However the Redmi Note 7 doesn’t come with an IP certification, but it will be able to provide basic water/splash resistance. If that does sound familiar, OnePlus 6 & 6T comes with similar splash resistance.

Lei said that the device has gone for quality test just like the same as Xiaomi’s Premium devices. They are also extending warranty from 12 months to 18 months to prove the same. The device comes in 3 variants 3GB + 32GB priced at 999 yuan ($147), the 4GB+64GB version which is at 1199 yuan ($176), and the 6GB+64GB version which is priced at 1399 yuan ($206).
