Chinese smartphone giant Xiaomi has already launched its latest iteration in the Redmi Note series – the Redmi Note 6 Pro in Thailand. Now, the brand is ready to unveil the device in India. There are no major changes for the device from its predecessor Redmi Note 5 Pro except the minor redesign of the phone, the presence of notch and new camera sensors.

The press invites for the alleged launch of the device have been leaked and it proves that Xiaomi is launching the handset within 20th of November. It seems to hint that the company might launch the device in all the three color variants.

Talking specifications, the Redmi Note 6 Pro comes with a 6.26-inch FHD+ display with a notch on top. The aspect ratio of the device is 19:9 and offers a 86% screen-to-body ratio. Under the hood, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset. There will be two RAM variants – 4 GB RAM coupled with 64 GB of internal storage and 6 GB RAM coupled with 64 GB of internal storage.

In terms of camera, it will sport a dual camera setup on the front and rear. The front carries a 20MP + 2MP configuration with f/2.0 aperture, portrait mode, and AI Face Unlock. The rear offers a 12MP primary camera with f/1.9 aperture and 1.4 µm, while the secondary sensor is of 5 MP supporting Dual pixel autofocus. That sounds like they’re reusing the same set of cameras from Redmi Note 5 AI Dual Camera (global variant).

Published

Recently, we heard the rumours of Realme working on a selfie-centric U-series smartphone. Now, before leaks could popularise the device, the company has announced the debut date of the same by putting a teaser on the e-commerce giant Amazon.

As per the landing page on Amazon.in, the Realme U1 is touted to bear the “Most Powerful Selfie Camera Ever” backed by a high-res depth engine with accurate AI detection. Furthermore, it will feature a dew-drop notch and also will be the first smartphone to debut with MediaTek Helio P70 SoC. The device is scheduled to unveil on the 28th of November, at 12:30 PM IST.

To recall, Madhav Seth, CEO, Realme India previously confirmed that Realme would be the first one to make use of new MediaTek Helio P70 chipset built on the 12nm FinFet process. This freshly unveiled chipset bears four Cortex A73  performance cores coupled with four low-powered Cortex A53 cores that are clocked at 2.1GHz along with a dedicated co-processor for performing AI tasks, offering significant improvements concerning performance and efficiency over the Helio P60 used on the first gen Realme 1.

Apart from the dew-drop notch and chipset, we don’t have much information regarding the device. Although, an earlier GeekBench listing suggested the phone to come with Android 8.1 Oreo and 4GB of RAM.

That being said, the Realme U1 will be the fifth smartphone by the company under the third U-series lineup. With just four devices, Realme has witnessed a phenomenal growth regarding sales. They have also expanded to countries like Indonesia and Malaysia. Apart from this, the company has gone through certain events like the recent price hike followed by the logo change.

This new Selfie pro might be a game-changer for the company if priced correctly. Given that the launch is around a week to go, let’s wait and watch. Stay tuned.

oppo r17 pro

If you know Oppo‘s Indian market strategy, then you know they’ve always operated below 25K category, and they’ve always been in the market with midrangers. Only recently they launched their flagship Oppo Find X in India, and that too haven’t been seen a lot of push from the company in terms of advertisement and marketing.

Take a look at this newest post from Oppo on it’s social channels:

Yes!

Oppo is brining their R series to India.

In case you’re not familar with R series, that’s their flagship series, which was historically been used as a basic framework by OnePlus for their phones. Even the latest Oppo R17 Pro/RX17 Pro and OnePlus 6T looks remarkably similar to each other.

If indeed Oppo is bringing in Oppo R17 Pro/RX17 Pro to India, that’s a huge step for the brand as it’ll push the brand’s image as not only an offline brand, but also as a premium brand in India.

Talking about Oppo R17 Pro, it does resemble OnePlus 6T alot, but has a distinctive gradient finish and also has triple cameras on the back.

It is a flagship in terms of everything other than the SoC, as this one is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, instead of SD845 from flagships.

On the front, it boasts a 6.4 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of FHD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 19:9.The display also houses an in display fingerprint scanner, much like the one on OnePlus 6T.

And on the back, this phone comes with a Triple camera setup (12 MP wide angle + 20MP primary + TOF 3D stereo camera). The phone is powered by a 3700mAh battery too.

We’ve to wait now for more teasers from Oppo to see if they’re indeed brining R17 Pro or a more recently launched lower end Oppo R15x or Oppo R17 Neo instead.

Recently, we have had the reports of Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) coming to India in November. Now, given that we are already in mid of the month, Samsung has officially confirmed that the device will be unveiled in the country on 20th of November.

The South Korean giant has sent media invites for the launch event, which will be held in Gurugram on November 20. Following the same, the company has also confirmed the launch date in an official video. In the meanwhile, Amazon and Flipkart have created landing pages for the upcoming new smartphone, indicating that it won’t be exclusive to one and instead, will be sold via both of them. Interested ones can register using the “Notify me” button. We expect the phone to retail in offline markets as well.

The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) has not one, two, but a total of four rear cameras as its USP, further making it the world’s first smartphone to bear four rear cameras.

Coming to the specs, the device comes with a 6.3-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC clubbed with 6/8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The storage is expandable up to 512GB via microSD card.

The device will directly compete with the recently launched OnePlus 6T at that price tag. That being said, stay tuned for the launch event.
