The highly awaited flagship killer from Xiaomi, Mi Mix 3 has been announced eventually. The company just unveiled its newest successor to last year’s Mi Mix 2, in China. Since it’s a flagship handset itself, then surely it’s got something to make many eyeballs turn excitedly. The phone possesses an all-screen design-yes, you heard that right. The screen-to-body ratio is about 93.4%, being claimed by Xiaomi.
Apart from having an all-screen front face, the Mi Mix 3 has got a slider for using front cameras. It sounds like the Oppo Find X and Vivo Nex, but the company says it’s a bit different from them.
Quickly coming onto the configurations, then the phone is powered by the latest chipset, which is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845. But the thing which takes it all to a whole new level is the RAM capacity of Mi Mix 3. Yes, Xiaomi’s newly announced phone has also joined the elite club of 10GB RAM phones this year! The highest variant of the phone called the ‘Palace Museum Edition’ will be having it. While the other three options available will be of 6GB/128GB, 8GB/128GB, and 8GB/256GB storage.
The phone comes with a 6.39inch AMOLED Full HD+ display (having a resolution of 2340x1080p), with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The device also supports wireless charging and Xiaomi, in fact, will also bundle one, in the box; which is really really great. The wireless charger is around 10W.
The phone’s European version will also be based on a 5G network.
Talking of the optics, then the Mi Mix 3 comes with four cameras! There is a rear-dual camera setup comprising of 12MP+12MP lenses (wide-angle and telephoto), while on the front, there are 24MP+2MP lenses. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back.
Since the phone is just released in China, so the company has set the pricing as per the Chinese market only. Mi Mix 3 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage will be available for CNY 3,299 ($475), translating to about Rs.34,784. The 8GB/128GB variant will be priced at CNY 3,599 ($517.92), translating to about Rs.37,928. The 8GB/256GB model will be priced for CNY 3,999 ($575.49), translating to about Rs.42,158. And lastly, the 10GB/256GB variant will be priced for CNY 4,999 ($720), translating to around Rs.52,744.
Looking at this pricing strategy then it still feels like a lot and lot cheaper, considering the fact that it’s a premium looking, powerful device. And this aggressive pricing is the only thing which makes Xiaomi stand out from its rivals. If Mi Mix 3 arrives in India, it will obviously give a tough competition to OnePlus-and even the big branded flagships too.
Apple Has Lost $450 Billion of Revenue Since October 2018!
Just about three months ago, the California tech-giant was enjoying a smooth ride with profits coming in, constantly; considering the fact that it was also the most valued company on the planet, last year. But since October 2018, the freefall of its revenues has generated a lot of ‘negative buzz’ among the analysts, the investors, the consumers, and also those who are the admirers of Apple Inc. in one or the other ways.
Apple has so far lost $450 billion of revenue since October, which is more than even the ‘overall value of social networking giant Facebook’. The total value of Facebook is about $383.76 billion. Well, FB’s total worth is also more than the total GDP of some countries like Iran, Norway, and Austria!
Now, you can imagine how big the loss is for Apple, even taking into account that it’s still got a lot of money and will probably make up for the losses very soon.
On Thursday, the iPhone maker’s stocks fell by 9.96%.
Way back, three months ago, on October 3rd, 2018, when Apple hit a peak of $232.07 per share, it gained a market cap of $1.16 trillion. But now, it just dropped to a low of about $142.19 per share (new results may vary from the article’s figures), clearing out a massive amount of $450 billion from its revenue. And on Thursday, January 3rd, Apple’s market cap was standing at $710.97 billion, as per the reports of Macrotrends.
And now Apple has also lost its position as world’s third most valuable company to Google’s Alphabet.
Apple has been struggling to maintain its aura for a while now and many experts are saying that to boost the revenues further and by a large number, Apple should also try to enter the budget-flagship or budget range of smartphones, as per the current trend. But that, for now, seems unlikely since Apple is a luxury phone making brand and always keeps the priority very high for the value of its products.
But it needs to understand the changing scenario in the markets currently, across the globe. If it keeps going like this then brands like OnePlus and Xiaomi will eventually end up becoming the true ‘smartphone profit makers’.
It looks like a state of a ‘slight’ emergency for Tim Cook and his team to sustain the company’s growth, just like it was moving three months ago.
Even the famous tech YouTube channel Unbox Therapy also came up with a video recently, discussing how Apple should move ahead if it has to live up to the fast-growing trends. Lewis Hilsenteger, who runs the channel, also talked about Apple’s recent decision to make the iPhones in India, in 2019.

Lenovo Z5 Pro GT Announced with 12GB RAM and upcoming Flagship Processor from Qualcomm
Lenovo is also not far behind when it comes to putting out some beasts in competition to other heavyweights. And continuing this streak, it unveiled its new flagship model, Lenovo Z5 Pro GT, on Tuesday, in China. The biggest highlight of the newly announced phone is that it will be the first phone, in the world, to come up with a 12GB of massive, huge RAM! Yes, you read it correctly.
Not only this, but it will also be the first smartphone in the world to possess the upcoming highest flagship chip from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 855 SoC, based on 7nm architecture.
The phone will be running on latest Android Pie 9.0 operating system, skinned with Lenovo’s own ZUI 10.0 theme. The Z5 Pro GT will go on sale in China from January 24th, 2019.
Specs and Price
Talking of the phone itself then the Z5 Pro GT comes with a big 6.39inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display, with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and a screen resolution of 1080x2340p. The protection is of Corning Gorilla Glass.
But the selling point of this premium Lenovo phone is the Snapdragon 855 chipset which was just announced earlier this month by Qualcomm. But Lenovo became the first one to truly come out with a phone actually running on that ultrafast chip in the world.
For keeping the performance levels top notch and without any halts, no matter what, the flagship processor combines with a huge and unprecedented 12GB of RAM, which is insane, seriously. Apart from it, the Z5 Pro GT will also be coming in variants of 6GB of RAM and 8GB of RAM.
For photography, the Z5 Pro GT has a dual-rear camera setup, with one being a 16MP SONY IMX519 sensor (with f/1.8) and other being a 24MP SONY IMX576 sensor (with f/1.8). There is also a dual-tone LED flash on the rear.
On the front too, there are dual cameras for taking even better pictures. There is a 16MP sensor (with f/2.2), and an 8MP IR sensor also for unlocking the phone via ‘Face Unlock’ in very dark conditions also.
For those who don’t know yet, the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT also has the now trending ‘sliding camera functionality’ which makes it an almost clear, all-screen phone from the front. So if you want to use front cameras, you can just use the slider that has about six parallel slides, double-helical structure, and AI enabled smart antennas. The antennas are touted to intelligently detect the position of the user’s hand grip to dynamically adjust the signal.
For storage purposes, the phone has massive capacity options of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. While the connectivity includes Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/A-GPS, 4G LTE, dual-SIM (Nano), Wi-Fi, NFC, and also USB Type-C. The phone also comes with nearly all the necessary sensors, like ambient light sensor, hall sensor, proximity sensor, e-compass, gravity sensor, gyroscope, and of course the fingerprint sensor under the display itself!
For ensuring a good and durable performance throughout a day, the phone also has a decent 3,350mAh of a battery.
Now ultimately coming to the price tag of this brilliant beast from Lenovo. Well firstly, it will only be coming in China, and that too next year towards the end of the first month.
In China, the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage will be sold for CNY 2,698 (translating to about Rs.27,700), the 8GB/128GB model will be available for CNY 2,998 (translating to about Rs.30,800), the 8GB/256GB model will be sold for CNY 3,398 (translating to about Rs.41,100) and lastly the 12GB/512GB variant will be available for CNY 4,398 (translating to about Rs.45,100).
All these four variants of the Z5 Pro GT will be available to pre-order from January 15th, 2019, in China, while the sale of the phone will begin from January 24 onwards. The phone will be available in a Carbon Black colour option with carbon fibre finishing on the top.
There’s no chance however of it arriving in India lately since Lenovo hasn’t announced anything regarding that yet. But it’s a great phone and considering the prices in China, it will really turn out to be a great competitor to any premium and expensive phone currently being available in the Indian market, like OnePlus 6T, Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Apple iPhone XS Max/XS and Google Pixel 3/3XL.
The Lenovo Z5 Pro GT deserves to be in India considering the fact that it will just knockout the very-very costly flagships out-of-the-park by its own very aggressive pricing.
Samsung Galaxy S10 will have a triple camera setup on the back
The Galaxy S10 may be months away from its first and official reveal but the speculations and rumors never cease to pop up. And now, according to yet another new report by PhoneArena, the Samsung flagship of 2019 may have a rear triple camera setup. But only the higher-end version, that is, the S10+ is rumored to have three cameras on the back.
The report by PhoneArena claims to have received an anonymous tip on Galaxy S10+’s back camera placement. But it is also believed that not only the S10+ but the regular S10 will also be having a three camera setup on the rear. Some newly leaked videos and reports have also suggested that there will be an ‘Infinity-O’ display in the upcoming Galaxy S10 phones and that they will also have a ‘punch hole’, in the screen itself towards the top right corner, for the front cameras.
The Infinity-O display was unveiled last month during the Samsung Developer Conference, and it had already debuted on the Galaxy A8 models, being launched recently in China. According to PhoneArena, the Infinity-O display is also another kind of AMOLED display which offers 2K+ screen resolution.
Many design leaks of the S10 suggest that the phone will be ultrathin with curved round edges, and possessing very minimum bezels.
Some image renders are claiming that the new S10 phones by Samsung will be having bigger displays too. While the speculation is that the S10 will be having a 6.1inch display, the S10+ is rumored to have a 6.4inch display. And the very good thing is that phones will be keeping the traditional 3.5mm audio jack too, implying that the users won’t be disappointed.
The premium S10 smartphones may arrive during the next year’s MWC 2019, according to strong predictions. And it will be the perfect timing also, as the year will only be just beginning.

Not only this, but the colour of the phone’s USB Type-C cable has also changed to orange which looks fantastic. Plus, this time OnePlus has also provided VOOC charge technology for the 6T McLaren Edition (for the first time), unlike its previous phones where there was the regular Dash charging support. The only difference is that the VOOC charge technology will enable the phone to get a quick boost in very less time.
Talking about the technical specs then the biggest upgrade to the 6T McLaren Edition is the mammoth 10GB of RAM, as compared to the 8GB variant of the usual OnePlus 6T. The phone has a 6.41inch Full HD+ AMOLED display, with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Other things are mostly similar like Snapdragon 845 and the 3,700mAh battery. The internal storage is also huge at 256GB.
