FIFA Mobile Gets New Season With Better Graphics, Team Chemistry System, Head to Head Multiplayer Mode


FIFA Mobile, one of the popular mobile games by EA Sports, has been updated on Android and iOS with a new season. The new update brings a list of much-awaited tweaks, including a “Head to Head” multiplayer mode as well as a new Team Chemistry system that boosts your starting lineup when you select players from the same real-world club, league, or nationality. Also, there is an upgraded gameplay engine that is touted to deliver a more realistic and responsive experience. EA has also made player likenesses look better than ever with a fresh set of star heads, authentic boots, and signature goal celebrations.

The new season of FIFA Mobile has an all-new gameplay engine that brings a “dramatically overhauled” animation system and artificial intelligence (AI) controlled players who play much more intelligently and realistically on both sides over the previous version. There are also better-looking players with authentic faces of many of the global football stars. EA has also uplifted the animation fidelity. This is claimed to help deliver an experience “with more passion and fluidity than any other football game available on mobile devices”.

Further, there are improvements on the part of celebrations as well. The company says that between dabs, backflips, and other moves, goal celebrations throughout the gameplay are authentic. Detailing is also there when it comes to visuals, such as the dresses and boots of the players. Moreover, off the pitch scenes, menus, and player items have been redesigned from the scratch to make FIFA Mobile an interesting game for the existing FIFA fans.

FIFA Mobile has also received a new Team Chemistry system that is designed to boost your starting lineup when you include players from the same real-world team, league, or country. You can experience the new addition and be able to build a team of strong contenders once you pick a few players from a popular real-world team.

If the new Team Chemistry system is not something that persuades you to install the latest FIFA Mobile on your Android or iOS device, EA has offered a real-time Head to Head multiplayer mode. This means you can play a tournament with competitors around the globe in a real time. You can also opt for the Amateur and Pro Divisions to play a match against an AI Trainer to improve your skills on the pitch.

EA has provided a list of minimum specs requirements for the Head to Head mode. There are models such as the iPhone 6 and later, iPad Air 2 and later, iPad mini 4 and later, Samsung Galaxy S6 and later, Galaxy Note 5 and later, Google Pixel and later, and OnePlus 3T and later among other devices in the list of recommended devices. Furthermore, the company points out that devices based on Snapdragon 2xx, Snapdragon 400 and 410, and Snapdragon 600 don’t meet the minimum specs.

India Should Focus on Export-Oriented Mobile Manufacturing: Report


The Indian mobile manufacturing industry should focus on manufacturing with an export-oriented approach as the domestic demand has started to decline, a report said here on Thursday.

The ICEA-McKinsey Report 2018 also noted that the Phased Manufacturing Programme (PMP) intended to turn India into a manufacturing hub is not enough to help the country to become an export manufacturing hub.

“The strong growth seen between 2014 and 2017 is starting to slow down,” the joint report said.

If the Indian industry restricts itself to making mobile handsets and components only for India, as per the survey the country is likely to manufacture “only 450 million handsets and employ 18 lakh people for an industry worth around $80 billion (roughly Rs. 5.8 lakh crores) by 2025”.

“If India extends its ambition beyond making in India for India, to making mobile handsets and components in India for the world, it could manufacture around 1,250 million handsets across various segments by 2025, firing up an industry worth around $230 billion (roughly Rs. 16.7 lakh crores),” it said.

The report observed that the export-oriented approach would create around 47 lakh jobs in the process.

Commenting on the government’s Phased Manufacturing Programme, the report said that although PMP has aided the growth in the mobile manufacturing sector, it has failed in taking an export-oriented approach and in creation of a component and sub-assembly ecosystem.

“PMP is effective but does not go far enough to establish India as a global manufacturing hub,” it said.

The PMP was started in 2015 by making local mobile phone manufacturing cheaper by imposing duties on imports.

“In value terms, the 2017 estimated exports of around $0.1 billion are short of the target for 2019 of $9 billion. Despite some improvement in exports since 2015, India still has a long way to go to become an export hub,” said the report.

It also recommended export incentives, labour reforms, and duty differential through PMP among others to increase exports.

“Developing a robust export promotion strategy through increasing incentives under Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS) and duty drawback rates available for mobile handsets.”

Commenting on the findings of the report, Pankaj Mohindroo, Chairman, India Cellular And Electronics Association (ICEA) said: “…green shoots have already started appearing in the mobile manufacturing landscape of the nation and this needs to be further accelerated with a major focus on exports.”

Nearly All Mobile Handsets Sold in the Country Are ‘Made in India’: CMR


Domestic manufacturing of mobile phones saw a significant increase in the third quarter of 2018, with almost 94 per cent of the handsets being made in the country, a new report from CyberMedia Research (CMR) has said.

According to CMR’s India Mobile Handset Market Review Report, India’s mobile handset market recorded 9 percent sequential growth during the quarter and smartphones grew sequentially by 29 percent.

Feature phone shipments during this period improved by 24 percent while fusion phones witnessed a sequential decline of 41 percent.

“As of third quarter of 2018, local manufacturing has now seen a significant boost. Completely knocked down (CKD) level manufacturing constitutes almost half of the overall market. Smartphone brands like Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi have moved largely to surface-mount technology (SMT).

Reliance Jio Phone also entered into SMT production in this quarter. Among domestic players, Lava has the major share in SMT production,” said Prabhu Ram, Head-Industry Intelligence Group (IIG), CMR late Wednesday.

Meanwhile, CKD level manufacturing surpassed semi-knocked down (SKD) manufacturing in the third quarter of 2018.

This quarter also saw aggressive launches by several smartphone players in the wake of the festive season.

According to Narinder Kumar, Lead Analyst, IIG-CMR, “Q3 2018 saw sharp growth in smartphones as well as feature phones”.

“The highly competitive smartphone market witnessed traction towards online sales supported by online sales with attractive discounts, buy back offers and financing schemes in October,” Kumar added.

India Mobile Congress 2018 Offers a Glimpse of How India Is Getting Ready for 5G


The telecom industry in India has seen a consolidation phase and a bunch of global players have exited the market due to cut-throat competition. Meanwhile, increased competition from the newest entrant in the market has brought about financial burden for existing service providers. It’s in this backdrop that telco gear makers like Ericsson and Huawei as well as the telcos have started playing an active role to take the country to the next level of bringing 5G to reality. The equipment manufacturers have been showcasing their 5G solutions at different events in recent months and they used this week’s India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2018 in New Delhi to demonstrate emerging 5G use cases and their roadmap for making that a reality.

“When it comes to 5G, it’s common for all. The whole industry will go towards 5G,” says Nitin Bansal, Managing Director, Ericsson, who showcased a drone at this year’s IMC that is designed for surveillance and security purposes. The was developed by drone startup called the IdeaForge in collaboration with IIT Delhi, Bharti Airtel, and Ericsson, Bansal revealed.

The Swedish company also demonstrated a model of a connected autonomous car that used a live 5G network through Reliance Jio on the 3.5GHz band to showcase remote driving. The car used a 5G modem to establish connectivity with 5G radio available at IIT Delhi and it was controlled virtually over-the-air.ericsson jio autonomous car imc 2018 gadgets 360 Ericsson 5G autonomous car

Both use cases — the drone as well as the autonomous car — have been developed at the 5G Centre of Excellence by Ericsson that was established earlier this year.

“It all has to be collaborative and that’s what we have been saying since we launched the Centre of Excellence that we need to have the industry, academia, and the telco partners together to develop different use cases,” says Bansal.

How Ericsson’s Centre of Excellence Hopes to Localise 5G Use Cases for India

Huawei also showcased its vision for major use cases of 5G at IMC 2018. The Chinese company demonstrated an augmented reality-based holographic communication model in partnership with Bharti Airtel. The model allows users to communicate with a 3D hologram of a person using a 5G network. Further, the company showed a telemedicine use case that it built in collaboration with Reliance Jio in which a remote ultrasound is conducted using a robotic arm/ machine over a 5G network. It also demonstrated a virtual reality-based use case that enables VR gaming, tourism, and shopping experiences over a 5G network.

“If you look at the use cases that include AR, VR, and telemedicine, these are depicting all the facets of 5G, including low-latency and high-throughput capabilities of 5G networks,” Radhey Shyam Sarda, Wireless CTO, Huawei India told Gadgets 360. “These use cases are the key enablers for the relevant use cases of 5G in India market.”huawei vr 5g use case gadgets 360 Huawei 5G VR

Not many know this, but Samsung’s telecom equipment forms the backbone of Jio’s 4G network in India. The South Korean behemoth also believes that a collaborative environment is essential for bringing about 5G adoption and rollout. “With respect to 5G, we believe that it is not a technology like 4G that would rollout, it is an ecosystem,” Srinivasan Sundararajan, Senior Vice President and Head Network Business, Samsung India, said at a media routable at IMC on Friday. “It has many things that need to come together. So we believe that 5G adoption will happen through a lot of collaboration.”

“The government will play a big part, the academic institutions will play a big part, and the type of use cases will play a big part. But the key thing that will happen in 5G unlike the previous releases is that it will go to many verticals that today are not being catered by the technology,” he added.

While 5G isn’t something entirely new for Samsung as it’s been testing 5G technologies for several years, in India the company is entirely focussed on Reliance Jio. “Jio will always remain the prime partner for us, says Sundararajan. “Today, all our discussions with Jio.” Having said that, the company could tap other operators over time to expand its presence in the country.

Sundararajan also tells the media the existing Samsung equipment available with Reliance Jio is upgradable to 5G through a software update. This is similar to what Ericsson has been offering to its telco partners.

In addition to Samsung’s presence in the Indian telecom industry, the company is one of the key solution providers in the US and Korea. Operators using Samsung gear in the US are already offering 5G in certain areas, while the commercial rollout of 5G network in Korea is planned for December this year, that will continue to grow in phases by the end of the first quarter next year. “In 5G, almost every major player in the world have started using Samsung equipment as an initial deployment,” boasts Sundararajan.

Samsung at IMC demonstrated a 5G Kiosk that is designed to offer blazing-fast Internet connectivity in a particular area. The company also showcased how the next-generation telecom network can help different sectors, including agriculture and manufacturing.samsung 5g city imc 2018 gadgets 360 Samsung 5G city

The Department of Telecom (DoT) recently sent invitations to equipment manufacturers such as Huawei and Samsung to kick off 5G trials in India. Therefore, there is an optimism in terms of hosting the next-generation network testing in the near future.

“I think going forward — either towards the end of the year or early next year — we would expect to see some 5G field trials beginning in India,” Sarda of Huawei India tells Gadgets 360. “Next year, there will be more field trials and ecosystem developments. That is how the market would be getting ready to adopt 5G.”

Just like Huawei, Samsung is also set to launch field trials of 5G networks in India. “We expect to do the trials in the first quarter [of next year],” reveals Sundararajan. “It will be in New Delhi — the heart of New Delhi area. We do expect using the technologies that both already commercially available in the US and what will become commercially available in Korea by later part of this year.”

“We expect these trials to be not like two days and done. This is something you set it up and then over a period of time, different use cases will emerge,” the executive continues.

Telecom Industry Has Revived, India Moving Towards 5G: PM Modi

Chip maker Qualcomm also wants to play a role in India’s 5G journey. “We have 19 OEMs with whom we are working,” says Durga Malladi, Senior Vice President, Engineering and General Manager 4G/ 5G, Qualcomm. “These OEMs span the globe and a lot of them are quite active and popular in India as well. That’s kind of the way of putting the fact that at least for smartphones we see that it is [5G rollout] happening in 2019.”

Malladi didn’t announce the names of the OEMs with whom Qualcomm is presently working to bring 5G-supported smartphones. However, he showcased a reference design at the conference that is touted to be a fully capable 4G plus 5G device. The reference design includes antennas to support mmWave alongside the 3.5GHz band which is of high interest in India for 5G alongside the 26GHz band.

Notably, Qualcomm conducted the first 5G test on a mobile device in October last year and unveiled its compact 5G NR mmWave antenna modules at the 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong earlier this week.

Aside from bringing 5G-enabled mobile handsets, Qualcomm is in plans to bring the next level of connectivity to always-connected computing devices. “We spend a good fraction of time on laptops in addition to smartphones,” Malladi tells the attendees of the conference that included a handful of media persons and market analysts. “We’ve thus come to expect a certain quality from these laptops as well wherein most of our data is on the cloud and you want to have the ability to be always connected to the cloud. So always-connected laptops with 5G is something that you’ll see some time from 2019 — if not — from early 2020 onwards.”

Qualcomm also has plans to support industries through its 5G-compatible solutions. Malladi says that there is a new set of Key Performance Indicator (KPI) in the pipeline to help businesses leverage 5G. “These are the KPIs of reliability and latency, where reliability is in the order of very low packets error rates and latency in the order of anywhere from 250 microseconds to 1 millisecond,” he elaborates. “These are not traditional mobile broadband applications… This is something that we expect to be used in industrial IoT applications such as high-precision manufacturing and control of robots.”

Rival MediaTek is also considering 5G as its next big focus area. There are a number of budget smartphones in the Indian market that are powered by MediaTek’s SoCs. It thus makes sense for the company to join the race and start thinking about the next-generation networks.

“Being a chipset provider, we have to work in advance,” Kuldeep Malik, Director — Corporate Sales, MediaTek India, tells Gadgets 360. “So we are already working with operators and as and when they will be ready to start deploying 5G and testing it, we should be ready. Globally, particularly in China and Europe, we’re already running trials on to the next-generation, 5G generation devices.”

Are we ready?
While equipment makers like Ericsson, Huawei, and Samsung are busy laying out the 5G roadmap, the telcos have more pressuring issues in mind like enhancing their 4G networks that would ultimately lay the groundwork for 5G.

“Telcos are densifying 4G right now, but it is also a step towards preparing for 5G,” asserts Sarda, adding, “I would say 5G is a journey and we’re at the beginning of the journey.”ericsson 5g drone demonstration imc 2018 gadgets 360 Ericsson

Bansal of Ericsson believes that to make the market ready, there is a need to work together. “I think all of us together have the obligation to make the market ready otherwise the market will not come prepared saying hey I’m ready now, deploy 5G,” he says. “It’s a stepped approach, the industry, telecom companies, and academia need to work together to create that part.”

Ericsson Wants to Be the Frontrunner in Bringing 5G to India

Last year, the government constituted a High Level 5G India 2020 Forum that brought various officials, industry experts, and academicians on board. It was essentially aimed at bringing early deployment of 5G in the country, with commercial rollout sometime in 2020.

Samsung’s Sundararajan predicts that the initial 5G rollout will co-exist with 4G. “In my personal view, we are all ready, but we may not be ready like a 2G nationwide-like a scenario. It may be based on certain use cases that drive the initial journey,” the executive adds.

How Mukesh Ambani Shook Up India’s Mobile Phone Industry


Mukesh Ambani leads Reliance Jio which has gone from zero to more than 200 million subscribers since 2016

Within two years, India’s richest person turned the local mobile-phone market into the world’s biggest consumer of wireless data. But along the way, billionaire Mukesh Ambani laid waste to profits in the overcrowded industry by driving down prices to as low as zero.

Ambani leads Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd., which has gone from zero to more than 200 million subscribers, all of them on a nationwide 4G network, since 2016. While the user growth has come at the expense of smaller rivals who’ve merged or quit the market, the thrust into the country’s No. 3 spot for wireless carriers has also ravaged profit at Bharti Airtel Ltd., and Idea Cellular Ltd. The latter has merged with Vodafone Group Plc’s India unit to overtake Bharti as the market’s biggest operator.

Meanwhile, Reliance Jio, a unit of Ambani’s energy-to-retail conglomerate Reliance Industries Ltd., has reported two quarters of profit, driven by subscription growth that has continued even after the company began charging for data services. The company is due to report earnings Wednesday.

Consumers have been the clear winners, as the cost of sending and receiving data wirelessly has plummeted.

The plunge in prices has led to surge in data traffic to 1.5 billion gigabytes a month last year, according to Amitabh Kant, chief executive officer of NITI Aayog, India’s government policy think tank.

“Mobile data consumption is higher than USA & China put together,” Kant posted on his Twitter account in December 2017.

While users benefit from declining prices, losses are expected to continue at the country’s big three surviving carriers. Bharti will probably report an 8.1 billion rupee ($110 million) net loss for the three months ended Sept. 30, according to the average of analyst estimates.

The Cellular Operators Association of India expects more losses ahead for the industry.

“I see at least another three quarters of losses,” said Rajan Mathews, director general of the industry group. “I don’t think the present tariffs are sustainable.”

Prior to Jio’s entry into the market, India had more than 10 wireless providers, with the smallest five accounting for about 21 percent and Bharti, the largest, taking up 25 percent.

Since Jio stormed in with introductory free data and voice services, the market has consolidated into three big providers, including Vodafone Idea Ltd., which completed its merger at the end of August.
