Last month, Xiaomi filed a trademark for its third brand to be called POCOPHONE The first smartphone is already in development and even made an FCC (Federal Communications Commission) appearance.
There was a report recently about an upcoming Xiaomi phone for India, which firmware files previously hinted the name Beryllium but nothing much else was known about the phone design aspects of the smartphone was a mystery until now. We thought this might be the upcoming phone under POCOPHONE brand name.
Now, a new hands-on video of the device surfaced online today. Take a look:
There is a top notch which is wider, hinting that the 3D facial recognition from the Mi 8 may be included. There is a small chin below with virtual capacitive buttons. The rear sports a dual camera setup stacked in a vertical arrangement in the centre but there is no sign of a fingerprint sensor meaning it may be fully dependent on the facial recognition tech. It is painted with a blue colour likely to be one of its color options.
From the video, Xiaomi POCOPHONE will sport 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It will run MIUI 9 built on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. From earlier reports, there will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with Adreno 630 powering the device. It will be backed by a 4,000 mAh battery with no report of 4,000 mAh battery.
If the specs are true we can be sure that Xiaomi is gunning for a top of the line phone which stands among company’s best phones currently, Mi 8 & Mi Mix 2s.
The recent FCC appearance and this hands-on video points that the device is ready and the launch is around the corner. It may be unveiled at the IFA 2018 event to be held in Berlin from 31 Aug to 5 Sept.
Honor Note 10 Live Images Leaked Again, Confirms a No Notch Design!
Honor will be launching a new flagship phablet called Honor Note 10. It was teased earlier this week and also appeared in GeekBench. Now, a new set of very real looking set of images have appeared online, which shows it being compared with a Nintendo Switch. Take a look:
The Honor Note 10 image reveals the upcoming phablet will feature a FullView display akin to Huawei’s previous flagship phones of this year excluding the notch. The top and bottom has very sleek bezels which should lead to a high screen-to-body ratio.
The Honor Note 10 will feature a massive 6.9 AMOLED display which is supplied by Samsung It is once again powered by the company’s Kirin 970 SoC, which we saw in Huawei P20 series, Honor View 10, Honor Play and the recently launched Honor 10. It is coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
The phablet is rumoured to have a 24MP + 16MP configuration on the back and have advance AI features like scene recognition, AI portrait mode. The front will offer a 24MP camera sensor with AI powered Portrait mode and AI beautification.
It will run EMUI 8.2 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo and speculated to be backed by a 6,000 mAh battery with Honor Super Charge fast charging technology. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, NFC, BeiDou, 4G VoLTE, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS and a USB Type-C port.
White variant of Oppo Find X Leaked! Launching Soon?
OPPO has recently unveiled the Oppo Find X which is a matter of talks since the time of launch due to its innovative design or we should say- one of the most innovative designs we ever saw since past few years. The device is currently available in two colour variants including the Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. Now, few images have appeared online which showcase the white version of the device.
The leaked images are sourced from two different leaksters. The first image partially reveals the glossy back panel of a white coloured Oppo device which matches exactly with the one on the Oppo Find X.
The other image showcases the front side of the device, which again, is on par with the Oppo Find X due to the nearly bezel-less design with 3D curved edges. Both the images look realistic, adding to the credibility of the same.
As far as the above images are concerned, it seems that Oppo has been already working on a White version too. Anyways, it’s common among Chinese manufacturers like Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, Honor and OnePlus to launch new colour versions of the device after a few weeks of its launch. This practice not only helps them to stay in the limelight but also bring a significant boost in the number of sales. Therefore, we expect the Chinese giant to launch the white version in the coming few weeks.
The Oppo Find X comes with a 92.95% screen to body ratio due to the fact that the middle section of the device motorizes up to reveal both the cameras, whenever needed. It comes with a 6.4-inch FullHD+ OLED display and Snapdragon 845 SoC.
In India, the device retails for a price tag of Rs. 59,990 (~$876). Additionally, a premium Find X Lamborghini Edition will come to India as well, which will be made available next month in China for 9,999 Yuan (~$1,495). Though the device is yet to land in European markets, it is confirmed to land in U.K. by the Spokesperson of the company. Stay tuned for more updates.

The front panel of the blue version will be white, similar to the Lake Blue version of the Redmi Note 5 & Note 5 Pro. As of now, all the existing variants retail for the same price and we expect the same to be followed by upcoming versions.
The Xiaomi Redmi Y2 is the renamed Redmi S2 that was launched some time ago in China. It comes with a 5.99-inch HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it is powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor seen on past generation of Xiaomi devices. It is available in two configurations including 3/32GB and 4/64GB options.
The device sports a dual 12 MP + 5 MP camera setup at the back, in addition to a 16MP Selfie shooter at the front, accompanied by an LED flash. In addition to the fingerprint scanner placed at the back, the phone also features an AI-based Face Unlock feature. On the software front, it runs on MIUI 9.5 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. All this is backed by a 3,080mAh battery.
While the 3GB RAM variant of the Redmi Y2 costs Rs. 9,999, the 4GB variant retails for Rs. 12,999. This device is perfect for people looking to have a good pair of cameras at the sub-10K budget.
