on

The recent press invites gave the confirmation of Honor launching a new smartphone in India, on July 24. Earlier, the device was speculated to be the Honor 9X- a renamed version of the Honor 9i (2018) that was launched a few months back, along with the Honor Play in China. However, the latest tweet by Honor India reveals the device to be named as Honor 9N instead of 9X as per the previous reports.

The Honor 9N will be launched in India at an event held on July 24. The device will be having same specifications and design as the Honor 9i (2018). Until now, we have got only the confirmation of Honor 9N, but there’s a slight possibility the company might reveal the Honor Play as well.

The Honor 9N comes with a glass body and rounded corners along with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a Notched display.

In terms of specifications, the device comes with a 5.84-inch IPS LCD display having Full HD+ resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, maintaining an aspect ratio of 19:9 due to the presence of Notch. Under the hood, the device is powered by HiSilison Kirin 659 SoC coupled with Mali-T830MP2 GPU and 4GB of RAM. It will be available in two configurations including 64GB and 128GB storage options.

On the software front, it runs on EMUI 8.0 layered on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. All this is backed by a 3,000 mAh battery which unfortunately doesn’t support any sort of quick charging protocols.

In China, the base variant of  Honor 9i (2018) is priced at CNY 1,3999 (roughly Rs.14,300) while the higher 128GB variant retails for CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs.17,400) and is available in a wide range of colour options including Black, Blue, Green, and Purple out of which Blue and purple are confirmed for India. We expect the device to be priced similarly in India. Let’s wait for the official launch for exact information. Till then, Stay tuned.

Mi Mix 3

Xiaomi‘s Mi Mix 3 is one of the most awaited smartphones this year. Xiaomi President Lin Bin revealed the device back in August but didn’t give much information. Recently Xiaomi posted a smiley face in its official account hinting to a Mi Mix 3 launch. Now an official poster revealing details about the launch has surfaced on Chinese media platform Weibo.

A previous poster also surfaced earlier suggesting that the device will launch on October 15 which turned out to be fake. But this time the company itself put the poster on its official Weibo account confirming the October 25 launch date.

According to the poster, the company will unveil the device on October 25. From the images from the poster, we can see its manual slider, a feature which was showcased by Xiaomi’s CEO and which was also leaked on a hands on video. Also from the silhouette of the device we can make out that it will come with a full screen display without any bezels which matches with the previous renders leaked before.

Xiaomi also teased two new industry firsts, one being that the phone will be the first commercial 5G phone and that the phone will be having a 10GB RAM variant. Take a look at the teasers:

Asus Schedules Launch event for 17th October. Zenfone Max Pro M2 & Max M2 Incoming?

Published

on

Asus recently entered the India market with its new Zenfone Max Pro series which performed extraordinarily well in terms of sales. Now, it seems that the Taiwanese giant is planning to launch yet another smartphone in the country on the 17th of October.

The hint comes from the official social media handles of the company as well as the media invites. The invite sent by Asus reads out the time and venue of the event, followed by the confirmation that the upcoming smartphones will be a part of the Zenfone series. The event will be held on the 17th of October at 12:30 pm IST and will take place in New Delhi. Furthermore, the event will be live-streamed as well as the previous launch.

 

Moreover, the teaser on Instagram suggests the first global launch of two new Zenfones in India. If you are not aware of these two phones, let us tell you that two new Asus smartphones namely the Asus Zenfone Max M2 and Zenfone Max Pro M2 were recently seen on EEC and it is a strong possibility that these two devices turn out to be the same which the company has planned to launch on 17th.

Some were even speculating the launch of Asus Rog gaming phone in India which unfortunately is barred by the fact that it doesn’t fall under the Zenfone series.

As of now, we don’t have much information available about the devices but it can be said that the Zenfone Max Pro M2 might be powered by the relatively powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 or even the Snapdragon 710 SoC coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB of Internal Storage. The device is expected to be a direct successor to the Zenfone Max Pro M1 with a notched display, better cameras and a similar battery capacity of around 5000mAh.

On the other hand, Zenfone Max M2 (non-pro) might be a sub-10K smartphone just like the Realme 2 and is expected to bear Snapdragon 450 chipset. However, we insist that you should take these specs with a pinch of salt as we don’t have any official words on the same.

As usual, we expect an aggressive pricing from Asus to compete with the likes of Xiaomi and Realme. Let us wait for the launch to have exact information on the same. Till then, Stay tuned.
