Xiaomi Poco F1 Teased to Be a Flipkart Exclusive


Xiaomi Poco F1 Teased to Be a Flipkart Exclusive

Teasers have hinted that Xiaomi’s Poco F1 will be Flipkart exclusive in India

Xiaomi is set to launch Poco F1, the first smartphone from the company’s sub-brand Poco, in India on August 22. Now, it looks like the Xiaomi Poco F1 will be Flipkart exclusive in India. A teaser page for the upcoming smartphone is now live on Flipkart, suggesting that the Poco F1 could be launched as a Flipkart exclusive in the country, thanks to the words ‘only on Flipkart’ in the banner. As per the teaser on the e-commerce site, something “As Fast As You” is coming soon.

With the phrase, “How Fast You Ask?” the e-commerce giant hints towards the launch of the Xiaomi Poco F1. Even the patterns used on the landing page appear similar to ones used on the promotional shots by Xiaomi’s sub-brand Poco. Other than that, there seems to be no official announcement from Xiaomi. We could expect Flipkart to reveal the name of the smartphone in the days following up to the launch next week.

Last week, Jai Mani, Lead Product Manager for Xiaomi India, revealed details about the Poco brand, saying, “Poco is all about making powerful smartphone with the technologies that truly matter. Recently it feels like the pace of innovation in the smartphone industry has slowed down, while prices are creeping up with flagship smartphones now past the $1,000-mark. We set out to build something to buck this trend. For the first product, we got back to basic and focus entirely on speed. Not just peak performance speed, but actual, real world, speed.”

To recall, the new smartphone confirmed by Poco India notably surfaced online as Pocophone F1 in the recent past. The Xiaomi sub-brand had previously revealed the Poco F1 launch date without detailing any key specifications or price of the upcoming handset. An unboxing video of the Poco F1 also emerged on YouTube last week that highlighted its display notch and dual rear camera setup.

In terms of specifications, the Xiaomi Poco F1 is said to debut in two different storage variants – with 64GB and 128GB of onboard storage options. While the Poco F1 price for the 64GB variant is speculated to debut in Eastern Europe at EUR 420 (roughly Rs. 33,300), its 128GB variant could arrive at EUR 460 (roughly Rs. 36,400). There is no information on the price in India of Poco F1. While Poco hasn’t revealed the specifications of the Poco F1, an initial listing on a Belarusian online store had suggested that the handset will come with a 6.18-inch full-HD+ display that will an 18.7:9 aspect ratio. The Poco F1 is also rumoured to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC along with a liquid cooling system.

Realme 2 Release in India Teased, Will Sport Display Notch and Dual Rear Cameras

Realme 2 will borrow the Realme 1’s diamond cut finish back, in a new blue colour.

The Realme brand separated from parent phone maker Oppo late last month. The newly-separated brand has now teased the launch of its second smartphone, after the Realme 1, which could be dubbed the Realme 2. The teaser – with the title ‘A Notch Above’ – is already up on Realme’s website and reveals that the phone will sport a display notch and the same diamond cut back design, in a new Blue colour option. The phone is also seen to have a horizontally stacked dual rear camera setup and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Apart from these certain design elements, no other specifications or features have yet been revealed in the teaser image. Information around launch date and pricing has also not been revealed, but we can expect Realme to follow up in the coming weeks.

To recall, the first smartphone from the brand, the Realme 1, was launched exclusively in India in May this year. The smartphone is priced at Rs. 8,990 for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant, Rs. 10,990 for the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage model, and Rs. 13,990 for the one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The phone is currently sold in Diamond Black, Moonlight Silver, and Solar Red colour options.

In terms of specifications, the Realme 1 has a 6-inch full-HD+ display, an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 SoC clocked at 2GHz, 3GB/ 4GB/ 6GB of RAM, a dual-core AI-specific chip, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 3,410mAh battery under the hood. There is dual 4G VoLTE support on the Realme 1.

Realme is currently headed by Sky Li, who has previously worked as the overseas head for Oppo. He is credited with having helped the Chinese phone giant grow from just 3 markets initially to presence in over 31 countries and regions.

Oppo R17 Pro Teased With Variable Aperture; Triple Camera Setup, Snapdragon 710 SoC Likely on Board


Oppo R17 Pro may be the Chinese industry’s answer to the variable aperture camera first featured on the Samsung Galaxy S9 family. The new smartphone by Oppo, which notably comes just a day after the Oppo R17 emerged officially, is touted to debut with a Smart Aperture technology that will enable users to capture dynamic lighting by adjusting the aperture sizes. It is separately reported that the Oppo R17 Pro could come with a triple camera setup. Huawei already adopted the technology to offer as many as three rear-facing camera sensors with the launch of the P20 Pro back in March. Oppo might use a similar technology on the Oppo R17 Pro. Meanwhile, the benchmark scores of the upcoming smartphone also emerged with a Snapdragon 710 SoC. This is unlike the Oppo R17 that debuted on Monday with a Snapdragon 670 SoC.

As teased in a video posted on Weibo, Oppo is set to bring the R17 Pro with a variable aperture feature that it calls Smart Aperture. The handset, as detailed in the video, will have two f-stop numbers, particularly f/1.5 and f/2.4, that will interchange through the software to adjust the amount of lighting and ultimately enhance shots. While the concept of variable aperture is not new in the market of still cameras and DSLRs, Samsung adopted this development first on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ and calls it Dual Aperture. The same technology has also been inherited by the Galaxy Note 9.

Alongside the variable aperture, the Oppo R17 Pro will have a bunch of artificial intelligence (AI) powered camera features, including a Super Night Mode. GizmoChina also reports that leaked marketing material by Oppo is doing the rounds of the Internet, and has hinted at the availability of a triple camera setup on the Oppo R17 Pro. It is unclear that how the Chinese company will leverage the addition of the third sensor that sits in line with the two sensors on the R17 Pro, as seen in the alleged marketing material.

Huawei brought a triple rear camera setup on the P20 Pro by partnering with Leica. The company offered an 8-megapixel sensor with 3x optical zoom, 40-megapixel RGB sensor, and a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor. Oppo could use a similar configuration on the R17 Pro that appears to have a vertically-placed triple rear camera setup.

In addition to the all-new camera setup, the Oppo R17 Pro is likely to come with a Snapdragon 710 SoC. As spotted by Telefoonabonnement.nl, a Geekbench listing has tipped the availability of the new chipset. The listing also highlighted that the smartphone has 8GB of RAM.

If we believe some ongoing rumours, the Oppo R17 Pro features a 6.4-inch display and come with 128GB of onboard storage. The handset is also reported to run Android 8.1 Oreo-based ColorOS 5.2 and pack a 3,500mAh battery.

Oppo hasn’t revealed any details about the launch of the R17 Pro. However, the company has already listed the Oppo R17 and is set to start taking its pre-orders in China from August 18.

Triumph Scrambler 1200 Teased; Global Unveil In October 2018


Triumph Motorcycles will be unveiling the Scrambler 1200 on 24 October, 2018.

The Triumph Scrambler 1200 will have a comprehensive electronics package

It had to happen! After Ducati introduced the Scrambler 1100 last year, it was a matter of time before Triumph brought out a bigger scrambler too. In fact, Triumph has been testing the Scrambler 1200 for quite some time now. And now, Triumph Motorcycles has released a teaser of the Scrambler 1200, which will be globally unveiled on 24 October, 2018 ahead of the EICMA in Milan. In all possibility, Triumph will have two variants of the Scrambler 1200 which could be named ‘Retro’ and ‘R.’ The new Scrambler 1200 ‘R’ will have Showa upside down forks and Ohlins twin-shocks fitted to a new swingarm which will be longer as well. Also new is a large 21-inch front wheel (the current Street Scrambler has a 19-inch front wheel).

The lower spec ‘Retro’ model might have Nissin brakes and KYB suspension in a bid to keep costs down. Triumph already has the Street Scrambler in its line-up, which shares the 900 cc parallel-twin engine with the Street Twin and the Bonneville T100. The Street Scrambler has ride-by-wire throttle, ABS and traction control, but the bigger 1200 cc Scrambler could possibly get additional riding modes as well, including in all probability an “off-road” mode as well.

Some of the features on the Triumph Scrambler 1200 include an LED headlamp, engine and hand guards, a 21-inch wheel up front and a 19-inch wheel at the rear. The engine of course will be a 1,200 cc parallel-twin motor and we believe it will be in a different tune as compared to the other 1,200 cc engines in Triumph line-up such as the Bonneville Bobber, Bonneville Speedmaster and the Bonneville T120. There are also rumours floating of Ducati coming up with a Desert Sled 1100 which could make its debut at the 2018 EICMA in November 2018 and if that happens, it will be one of the biggest rivals to the Triumph Scrambler 1200.

We would like to believe that Triumph will launch the Scrambler 1200 in India sometime in the first half of 2019 with the global launch in early 2019.

Volkswagen T-Cross Teased Ahead Of Debut; Reveals Cargo Space


The T-Cross is based on the modular transverse matrix, or MQB for short, and this is how Volkswagen is able to make more space available




View Photos

The company says that the luggage compartment allows storage space of 385 to 455 litres.

The Volkswagen T-Cross is the company’s smallest SUV and the company has now teased the car ahead of its launch. But there’s some vital information coming out of the teaser video and that’s to do with the cargo space on offer. The world premiere will take place in the next couple of months and the month is likely to be October. However, the T-Cross will be launched internationally in 2019 and yes, India is one of the markets where the company will introduce this compact SUV. The company gives out details of the cargo space on offer by allowing professional ice hockey team – ‘the Grizzlys Wolfsburg’ to throw in all their equipment into the T-Cross.


Volkswagen

The T-Cross is based on the modular transverse matrix, or MQB for short, and this is how Volkswagen is able to make more space available. The front axle moves far to the front, thereby lengthening the wheelbase, creating more space in the interior and increasing the available stowage space. The latter is also variable: Depending on the situation, the rear seat bench can be adjusted lengthwise as standard. The company says that the luggage compartment allows storage space of 385 to 455 litres. The back of the rear seat can also be divided (60:40) or completely folded down. This creates a flat loading area and thus even more space of 1,281 litres. The fold-down front passenger seat backrest offers additional flexibility.

The high seating position in the T-Cross is typical for an SUV: 597 mm at the front and 652 mm at the three seats at the rear; the elevated view from the T-Cross is realised via higher ground clearance and the seat system. At 4107mm long, the T-Cross is a compact SUV for both the rough roads and the urban setting. Volkswagen even goes on to say that the ‘T-Cross is entering the market as one of the safest vehicles of its class, guaranteed through excellent crash properties and a large spectrum of assistance systems.’ It will come with standard features like an ambient traffic monitoring system) and Lane Assist (lane departure warning system). The T-Cross will be positioned below the Tiguan globally and we have no doubt that it’ll make its way to India because well, that’s the announcement that Skoda made just yesterday about focus on the MQB platform for the Indian market. The T-Cross is ideal then for the country as it will go up against the likes of the Hyundai Creta and even the Renault Captur.

View Photos

Expect the R15 V3 MotoGP edition to be priced at a slight premium

India Yamaha Motor has teased the much talked about MotoGP edition of the YZF R15 V3 through a short YouTube video. It will just be a new variant of the R15 V3 with motorsport livery inspired from Yamaha’s current MotoGP motorcycle, the M1. The R15 MotoGP edition gets a blue and black paint scheme with ‘Movistar’ and ‘ENEOS’ logos, who are sponsors for the Yamaha MotoGP team. Also, there is a ‘Yamalube’ logo on the motorcycle fairing as well. While all details are not out, we expect that MotoGP edition of the R15 will be manufactured and sold in limited numbers. Recently, India Yamaha also increased the price of the standard R15 V3 by ₹ 2,000 which means that the bike now sells for ₹ 1.27 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). One can expect a slight premium in terms of pricing for Yamaha R15 V3 MotoGP edition.

Apart from the colour scheme, we do not expect the bike to have any other changes. The R15 will continue to get the updated 155 cc single-cylinder engine with variable valve actuation (VVA) which makes 19.3 bhp and 15 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox with a slipper assist clutch.

Compared to the international specification R15, the Indian model misses out on ABS, upside down forks in a bid to control the cost. At its current price, the R15 V3 is one of the best entry-level sportbike that you can buy. It will happily do your daily commute and keep you happy on the racetrack as well.

2019 Fiat 500X Facelift Teased Ahead Of Launch


It’s been a while since Fiat updated the 500X and it was in dire need of a mid-cycle refresh. And the Italian carmaker finally heard our voice, and has now teased the 2019 Fiat 500X Facelift ahead of its launch in October. While the teaser image does not speak much about the facelift, but we do know that it is refresh and not a full-blown facelift as such. Nevertheless, the 2019 Fiat 500X facelift gets major updates on the exterior, while continuing with the same powertrain under the hood. But, the question remains, will the 2019 Fiat 500X will only be a facelift or will the company introduce it in a completely new platform is still unclear.

Visually, the 2019 Fiat 500X facelift gets its biggest change upfront in the form of new headlight structure. The two thin LED strips surrounding the main light fixture now has an premium look and feel to it. Moreover, the 2019 Fiat 500X also boasts of new LED DRLs while the fog lamp remains the same. The front fascia too is redesigned to give a more premium and contemporary look to it. Other than this, the company has not revealed any more details of the 2019 Fiat 500X, and we will have to wait for a little longer to get any definite details.

Under the hood, we expect the 2019 Fiat 500X to continue with the same tried and tested powertrains. Considering the 2019 Fiat 500X facelift is based on the same platform, the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged engine will churn out 118bhp of max power and 190 Nm of peak torque. The other option will be 1.3-litre four-cylinder turbo with the ability to churn out 148 bhp and 177 bhp along with 270 Nm of torque.

Two New Softail Motorcycles Teased In “More Roads To Harley-Davidson” Video





View Photos

There is no clear timeline on the launch of these two new softail motorcycles

Harley-Davidson shook up the global motorcycling fraternity when it announced brand new models such the Pan America, the naked streetfighter and the new 250 – 500 cc model specific to Asian two-wheeler market. Now, while these were the confirmed motorcycle launches from Harley-Davidson, the company’s ‘More Roads to Harley-Davidson’ video, one can get a fleeting glimpse of two new Softail models which could be called the ‘Bronx’ and the ‘FXDR’. Talking about the FXDR first, the video cuts to riding shot of the bike with the LED instrumentation console in focus and the label on that says FXDR. Also, the bike sports a radical looking console along with clip-on handlebars (on a Harley!) which is a first since the XLCR café racer had them in the late ’70s. The FXDR seems to have similar large diameter forks as the ones on the Fat Bob. The front wheel of course, is not as fat as on the Fat Bob.

The second bike which is seen in the video could be called the ‘Bronx’. Harley-Davidson trademarked the name earlier in the year and it is quite possible that we see the Bronx showcased at an international motorcycle show this year. In the video, the Bronx seems to get a full-colour TFT dash which hints at Bluetooth connectivity. Also, one can see big piston Showa forks on the bike which hints at solid performance, perhaps a power-cruiser motorcycle which can take on the Ducati Diavel.

Along with the new adventure bike, the streetfighter, the electric ‘LiveWire’ and the confirmed small capacity bike for Asia, it could be said that Harley-Davidson is finally stepping out of its boundaries and exploring new avenues of motorcycles. Expect Harley to make some noise again at the 2018 EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan which is scheduled for November 2018.
