Redmi Note 5 Pro & Redmi Note 5 Leaks in Official Banner



We’ve finally got an official banner leak for Redmi Note 5 Pro & Redmi Note 5, just before the official release tomorrow. Take a good look at the phones below, you saw it first here!

Take a good look at the phones now:

Looks like the phone indeed was just like the leak we saw earlier, which we covered first too and the specifications do align with the previous leak.

Now, the Redmi Note 5 Pro will come with a Snapdragon 636 & 3/4GB of RAM like it was speculated yesterday. Also, the phone will feature a 5.99inch Full Screen display (18:9), which is touted to have a maximum brightness of 450 nits.

In the camera side, we’re seeing great improvements with a 20MP front facing camera, that’s up from 5MP from previous generations. Also, the sensor is a Sony IMX 376 sensor, that we found in Vivo V5 & V5s. On the back, we have dual camera setup of 20+5MP

Now, talking about Redmi Note 5, it carries on lots of stuff from Redmi Note 4, including Snapdragon 625. This can just be taken as a minor upgrade, and is basically just the rebranded Redmi 5 Plus (not sure if this is exactly the same phone). It comes in two variants, 3/32GB & 4/64GB. The 2/16GB variant of the predecessor has been scraped.

Sadly the Redmi Note 5 comes with a selfie camera of 5MP, but rear camera is the upgraded unit from Redmi 5 (I suppose).

Both the phones comes with 4000mAh battery, and will offer spectacular battery life like the predecessor.

From this, we can see that what both the phones share are the screen & battery, other than that, they’re completely different phones. Xiaomi could be just made the Pro version Redmi Note 5, but that would mean higher price for the phone, that might be the reason they opted for two different models this time around.

POCO’s Next Phone, “New POCO” is just a POCO F1 with a Gradient Back!



poco f1 gradient

POCO‘s General Manager C Manmohan has been teasing the company’s next phone, “New POCO” on Twitter from morning. We were all excited on the brand’s next venture, but it seems that the next phone isn’t a new model altogether.

Instead, this might be a revamped version of POCO F1 with a gradient back. Take a look at the below given screenshot from Mi Store:

This must be some kind of a bug in the app, which caused the upcoming phone to pop up before its launch.

If that gradient back sounds all too familiar, its the current trend in the smartphone industry, which was introduced by Huawei in their Huawei P20 series, which soon became the de facto smartphone design trend for 2018, with all the brands releasing phones with similar design.

Even Samsung launched their Samsung Galaxy A9 Star with a gradient back. Xiaomi was late to the party though, they released their Mi Play earlier today with gradient back design.

If that’s anything to go by, we can expect the phone to come in various gradient colours, even though the Mi store listing shows just a single variant.

If this is true, we can expect the price to remain unchanged as the brand would be just switching the polycarbonate back of POCO F1 to that of gradient colours.

If you ask me, they should’ve done this first time around and should’ve launched the phone with just gradient backs itself, that should’ve made the phone look much more premium than that of the polycarbonate backs.

Black Shark 2 is Launching in India Soon! As a Separate Brand.




Earlier today, we saw the news that Xiaomi‘s subsidiary Black Shark is planning on launching globally soon! But we were not sure about if the phone would be launching here in India.

But now we’ve an almost confirmed insider scoop regarding the phone’s launch in India.

Black Shark 2 will be launching here in India soon and we can expect their official social media handles to go live soon. But we’re not sure about how soon it is.

You might be wondering how this phone would be different from Xiaomi’s recently launched sub-brand POCO or POCOPHONE. It’s simple, Black Shark won’t be having any associations with Xiaomi (at least publicly). That means Black Shark will be a totally different brand here in India (and possibly in the global market).

It’ll be much more like Xiaomi’s other subsidiary brands operating now in India, like the recently launched Amazfit from Huami and the upcoming Yi light.

That brings us to the next question, Who will be providing customer support for the phone?

In India, POCO’s customer service is handled by Xiaomi itself. If the brand is gong to be stand alone, that would imply that the phone won’t be getting Xiaomi’s service support. They might be opting for “Free pickup and drop” type of service support which Google, Realme, etc are having in India now.

Talking about the phone, it was already leaked on a hands on video, take a look:

This shows the addition of side RGB lighting, which obviously is here because Asus ROG Phone, Razer Phone 2Nubia Red Magic are now having it, and it has been a staple of PC gaming products.

Note: This news comes from a trust worthy insider, but we can’t be 100% sure on anything until it’s official, right? So wait for the official news for further info on this!

Mi A2 Spotted in Amazon India for Pre-Order for a Price of Rs.17,499!



Mi A2 India

Xiaomi‘s upcoming Mi A2 was spotted only briefly for pre-order on Amazon for a price of Rs.17,499 briefly and the listing isn’t available right now. Take a look at the listing:

Anyways, this might be the confirmation we need for the Mi A2 pricing in India. But talking about the price, we can’t take this fully as an authentic listing as Xiaomi generally prices their phones in numbers ending 999 in India.

The phone was launched earlier last month in Spain with a hefty price tag, which made us all confused about its Indian pricing. This listing might have confirmed the pricing of the phone, but let’s wait for the official launch for the

In case you need a refresher, Xiaomi’s Mi A2 is the successor to their very much successful Mi A1 Android One phone. The phone comes with a 5.99 inch FHD+ display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC.

It was launched in three different variants, 4GB RAM & 32GB & 64GB storage variants and 6GB RAM & 64GB internal storage variant.

Xiaomi boasts it’s camera very much and is promoting it mostly as a camera centric phone rather than it being an Android One phone. It comes with a dual camera setup on the back which consists of 12+20MP dual cameras and the same 20MP rear camera sensor on the front as selfie shooter.

If there’s one thing that is lacking on the phone, that would be the battery life. This phone comes with a measly 3010mAh battery, which would be okay for a day’s use but won’t help much in heavy use. But thankfully, there is Quick Charge 4.0 support for the phone in India (although company provides a normal charger for the phone).

The phone will be launched officially tomorrow by Xiaomi and it will remain an Amazon exclusive. We’re not sure when the phone will be available for us to buy too with this listing, so we’ve to wait for the official launch tomorrow now.
