Xiaomi enters the gaming laptop market with GTX 1060 Mi Gaming Laptop


It seems Xiaomi is keen to produce every type of hardware you can think of, now adding a gaming laptop to its roster of devices.


The Mi Gaming Laptop is a 15.6-inch device with a 7th gen Intel Core i7 or i5 CPU, a 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD and either an Nvidia GTX 1060 or an Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti. The more capable i7/GTX1060 model comes with 16GB of RAM, while the i5/1050Ti units will have 8GB.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s is now official: Snapdragon 845 and a dual camera setup


Finally, after a truckload of leaks and rumors the Mi Mix 2s is here in all its glory. It comes with a more powerful chipset and much more impressive dual-camera setup, but a design very similar to the Mi Mix 2.



The Mix 2s shaves just a millimeter vertically and horizontally to improve the screen-to-body ratio slightly, but that's hardly a difference you will spot in real life. Then again, the metal frame and ceramic body still look gorgeous.

The Sharp Aquos S3 is officially the most compact 6" phone


It was expected of Sharp to announce its Aquos S3 on March 28 but here we are, the phone went official a few days early.


Sharp says that the Aquos S3 is the most compact 6-inch smartphone in the world, measuring 148.2mm x 74.2mm - that's 3.5mm shorter and 1.2mm narrower than the 6-inch LG V30.

Oppo F7 comes with 25MP smart selfie camera


The Oppo F7 is official and it fills the gap between Oppo's entry level A1 and the flagship Oppo R15 and R15 Dream Mirror.

On the front the Oppo F7 packs in a 6.23-inch 2280x1080px LCD with a tall 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch housing the 25MP selfie camera, the earpiece and the sensors.


The front camera is the selling point of the self-styled "Selfie Expert" Oppo F7. It's a 25MP f/2.0 shooter and the presentation was very keen to point out all the software enhancements it brings.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ to launch in India on March 6


Samsung will be launching the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones in India on March 6 at an event in New Delhi. The company has started sending out invitations to the media for the same.


The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are already up for pre-ordering on Samsung's website. Both devices are available in a choice of 64GB or 256GB in either Lilac Purple, Midnight Black or Coral Blue. Samsung is currently accepting INR 2000 as booking amount and the rest will have to be paid when the devices launch next week.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ can measure your blood pressure


When we read Samsung’s patent about measuring blood pressure with an optical sensor, we imagined it will be used on smartwatches in the future. So imagine our surprise to find out that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have just such a sensor.

Besides blood pressure, the phone can measure your stress levels as well. Samsung also plans to expand Bixbi’s skills to allow it to judge the calories of a meal just by looking at it through the camera.


This tech was co-developed with the University of California San Francisco in a collaboration dubbed My BP Lab.
