Fortnite Season 7 Release Date Announced, Snow Map Teased

The Fortnite Season 7 release date is December 6. Epic Games confirmed that it would be winter-themed spectacle as well, hinting that the Fortnite map would feature snow and ice. Considering that Fortnite Season 6 ends on December 4, a two day gap before the next set of events is par for the course. Like past Fortnite Seasons, Fortnite Season 7 will bring with it new gear, challenges, and of course, changes to the game’s map. We could also see new mini-games make their way to the battle royale shooter such as playing golf in Fortnite Season 5. With a Fortnite Season 7 release date of December 6, expect the Fortnite Season 7 start time should be 9am BST (1:30pm IST) on December 6.

“A bitter ice spreads… 3 days to Season 7,” reads a tweet from the official Fortnite account confirming when Fortnite Season 7 would begin and hinting at snow and ice featuring heavily too. The included image with the tweet also suggests that snowboarding would be a part of the festivities as well.  It makes sense when you consider that it starts in December which usually is a period of chilly weather in the northern hemisphere.

There are some clues that point to this as well. For one, a snow storm has been seen on the horizon to the south of the Fortnite map and has grown considerably over time and a snowy theme was even hinted at when the Hunting Party skin was introduced.

Furthermore, assets regarding different noises while moving such as the crunching of snow were leaked on Reddit too. Plus, the FNBRLeaks Twitter account had screenshots of sound files for snow footsteps (via VG247) corroborate the same too with a second tweet having audio of exported Fortnite files that aren’t exactly the same as the sound of snow in Viking Village. All of this points at the possibility of snow coming to the Fortnite map very soon.

Honor 10 Lite may come in multiple colour options

Huawei sub-brand Honor launched its flagship Honor 10 in April, and then made it available in India in May this year. Now, the company has announced that the pared down variant is launching in China on November 21. The company is hosting an event in Beijing, on the mentioned date, to announce the arrival of the Honor 10 Lite smartphone. The teaser poster also reveals the back of the device, and it is seen to sport a very different design, as compared to the Honor 10.

Honor has published a poster on Weibo announcing the arrival of the Honor 10 Lite in China on November 21. The phone is seen sporting a vertically stacked dual camera setup, a rear fingerprint scanner, and a gradient finish back. The Honor 10 Lite from the back looks to have taken inspiration from the Honor Note 10, Honor 8X and Honor 8C, instead of its premium variant that sports no rear fingerprint sensor and a comes with a horizontally stacked dual camera setup.

Unfortunately, the poster doesn’t reveal the front of the device, leaving us to speculate whether the Honor 10 Lite sports a display notch or not. In any case, the smartphone is set to launch next week, where all details will be revealed.

Even the specifications are a mystery at this point in time, but we can speculate that the Honor 10 Lite may come with EMUI 9.0 based on Android Pie out of the box, support dual-SIM slots, and come in varied colour options apart from the Blue variant seen in the poster.

The next gen Toyota Corolla will most likely make it to India sometime next year

Toyota has put out a teaser image of the 2020 Corolla sedan which is all set to make its debut at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition in China on November 16. The new generation Toyota Corolla Sedan is set to take styling cues from its hatchback and wagon siblings in terms of design and will share mechanical bits too including engines and transmissions. The next generation Toyota Corolla will most likely make it to India sometime next year or in early 2020. 

Unlike the previous generation Toyota Corolla, this one gets an aggressive and sportier face as compared to its predecessors with a set of edgy headlamps and an angular Toyota family look grille. The new generation of the Corolla is likely to be longer than the previous generation and this will translate into more space inside as well. The new generation Corolla is also expected to get a little sportier from the rear with a more swooping roofline and a set of aggressive tail lamps. The interior will be completely redesigned with flatter dashboard and an upright large touchscreen for the infotainment cluster. In typical Toyota Corolla style, the instrument cluster will be analogue with a blue theme.


In terms of engines, the Toyota Corolla will have a 1.8-litre or 2-litre petrol engine while the diesel engine is expected to be the same 1.5-litre unit that is currently available in the car in India.

Jawa 300 Motorcycle Exhaust Note Teased Ahead Of Unveil

The latest teaser gives a hint of the exhaust note of the upcoming 300 cc Jawa motorcycle. Read on to know more.

With just three days left for the upcoming Jawa motorcycle to be unveiled, the manufacturer is releasing more details about its upcoming offering. While leaked images have given us a fair idea as to how the bike will look like, the latest teaser hints at the exhaust note of the upcoming 300 cc motorcycle. The motorcycle does not have the same growl as something like a Royal Enfield, and you get a milder yet throaty exhaust note instead, if the video is anything to go by. The original Jawas weren’t known for loud thumps either, but for more of a ring-a-ding-ding exhaust note, unique to two-stroke engines. The company does seem to have taken the original trait into account with respect to the exhaust note as well.

Also Read: Upcoming Jawa Motorcycle To Get A New 293 cc Single-Cylinder

The Jawa 300 motorcycle will be officially unveiled on November 15, 2018, and could be showcased in multiple variants including a roadster, modern classic and possibly a scrambler version too. Officially, Jawa Motorcycles has revealed only the engine details on the upcoming offering. The bike will be using a 293 cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine tuned to produce 27 bhp and 28 Nm of peak torque. The motor will come paired with a 6-speed gearbox.

At the official unveiling, we expect to learn more about the firing order and more details on how the exhaust note was achieved. With respect to the design language, the spy shots have revealed the 300 cc Jawa, which certainly takes you back to the retro era. The design is nearly identical to the original Jawas including round headlamp, dual-tone chrome finished fuel tank, twin exhausts, and a flat saddle. The front forks have also been covered to look period specific. Smaller details that make a difference include the chain cover, wire-spoked wheels, and the round instrument cluster. The maroon paint scheme with yellow pinstripes on the leaked image seem inspired from the Jawa Type A.

The leaked image has also showcased gas charged twin shock absorbers at the rear, and a front disc brake, with a drum at the back, pointing at single-channel ABS to be offered as standard.


The upcoming Jawa 300 motorcycle will be the first real direct competition to Royal Enfield in the 300-500 cc retro segment. The former has a strong following in this space with its strong-selling Classic 350, which the Jawa 300 will compete against. Pricing will be a crucial factor in how the Jawa 300 is accepted and it is expected to remain aggressive, if not undercutting the rivals. We will be bringing you all the details on the Jawa 300 later this week. So make sure to keep watching this space.

Triumph Speed Twin Teased In Latest Video

New Triumph Speed Twin with the 1200 cc Bonneville ‘high power’ engine will be unveiled on December 4, 2018.

View Photos

The Triumph Speed Twin will be the latest addition in the Bonneville family

Triumph Motorcycles has released a teaser video which clearly states that the new Triumph Speed Twin will be launched on December 4, 2018. The new Speed Twin is expected to be powered by the “high power” 1200 cc which is already seen on the Triumph Thruxton R, and will be one more addition to the Triumph modern classic range. The bike undergoing test runs were spotted as early as two years ago, and recently Triumph also showcased the upcoming Speed Twin at a global dealer’s conference.


The Speed Twin was expected to be unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan this year, but Triumph chose not to unveil the new model at that show. Instead, now an official date has been announced in the latest teaser video. The design is essentially similar to the 900 cc Triumph Street Twin, the entry-level model in the Bonneville series. The Speed Twin will also run on cast wheels and is expected to share some components with the existing Bonneville T120 range. What could be all-new is the instrument panel, expected to be full-colour TFT with Bluetooth connectivity and integrated Google Maps.

Like most of the models in Triumph’s modern classic range, the Speed Twin name is also taken from Triumph’s models from early 20th century. The original Triumph Speed Twin 5T was a motorcycle launched in 1937, and was one of the first successful British parallel-twin models. The new Speed Twin will be based on the Triumph Thruxton R, with the same state of tune, so the 1200 cc engine will put out around 97 bhp. The new Speed Twin is expected to be launched in India, sometime in mid-2019, after the bike is launched in Europe.
