Xiaomi President Shares Image of Mi Mix 3 Running on 5G Network, Launch Imminent


Xiaomi President Shares Image of Mi Mix 3 Running on 5G Network, Launch Imminent

Photo Credit: Weibo

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 was launched in October

Xiaomi launched the Mi Mix 3 smartphone in October this year, and the device comes with quite a few highlights including the magnetic sliding front camera, a dual vertical camera setup, two cameras at the front, and a true bezel-less display with no notch. At the time of launch, the company had confirmed that a 5G variant of the device will arrive next year, and now Xiaomi President Lin Bin has shared an image showing off the Mi Mix 3 running on a 5G network.

The Xiaomi president has shared the image on Weibo, hinting at an imminent launch soon. If you look closely at the image, the top right edge displays a 5G logo suggesting that the phone is connected to a 5G network. At the left edge, there’s also an Android Pie logo indicating that the smartphone will get an Android Pie update soon as well. To recall, at the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 launch, the company had announced a 5G variant of the smartphone would be launched for the European market in 2019.

Apart from the image, the Xiaomi executive hasn’t shared any other details of the smartphone. The Mi Mix 3 5G variant is expected to be identical to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 in design and specifications. The smartphone sports a rear fingerprint scanner, a 6.4-inch (1080×2340 pixels) full-HD+ OLED panel, 10GB RAM, Snapdragon 845 SoC, a 3,850mAh battery, and dual cameras at the front and back.

Apart from Xiaomi, OnePlus has also confirmed that it will launch a 5G smartphone next year. OnePlus spokesperson earlier confirmed that the OnePlus 7 won’t have 5G enabled to keep the costing competitive. Instead, the company will keep its promise of 5G by launching a separate series early 2019. It is still a mystery whether OnePlus will launch this phone alongside the OnePlus 7 or launch it earlier on in a separate event. It is speculated that OnePlus could launch the 5G device at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro First Impressions


Redmi Note 6 Pro is the latest smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi that’s set to launch in the Indian market. It succeeds the Redmi Note 5 Pro, which has been a popular choice in the sub-Rs. 15,000 segment in the country since its launch nine months ago. Xiaomi now faces competition from new models including the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Motorola One Power, and Honor 8X at around the same price. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro will fight back against these competitors. It shares many of its internals and design elements with the Redmi Note 5 Pro, but also sports a new display 6.26-inch 19:9 full-HD+ display with a notch.

The smartphone will be launched at an event in New Delhi scheduled for November 22, at which
its pricing will be announced. The Redmi Note 6 Pro price in India is expected to be close to that of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, which started at Rs. 14,999 and went up to Rs. 16,999 — though the phone (and two other Xiaomi offerings) got Rs. 1,000 cheaper on Friday. However, given the recent hike in the prices of other Redmi models, the Redmi Note 6 Pro could be priced slightly higher as well. We got to spend some time with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro ahead of its launch, and here are our first impressions.

 

Redmi Note 6 Pro specifications and design

As compared to its predecessor, the display on the Redmi Note 6 Pro has slightly larger dimensions and has a notch. It has a resolution of 1080×2280 and a maximum brightness of 500 nits. In our brief time with this phone, its display seemed to have good viewing angles, with accurate colour and contrast. We did, however, notice slight backlight bleeding along the top edge at the maximum brightness level. The 2.5D curved edges help the display glass meet the frame of the phone smoothly.

Apart from a few cosmetic changes, the Redmi Note 6 Pro strongly resembles the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The new model is 0.5cm thicker and slightly wider but feels the same in your hand as would the Redmi Note 5 Pro. On the front, the phone is devoid of any hardware or capacitive navigation buttons; instead users can choose from onscreen buttons or MIUI’s gestures. There is a familiar dual camera setup at the back. There is also a small physical fingerprint sensor at the back. When we tried it, there seemed to be a slight lag unlocking the phone, but we will be testing it more ahead during our review process.

The Redmi Note 6 Pro sports the lock/ power button and volume buttons on the right, and a hybrid dual-SIM tray on the left. This tray can take either two Nano-SIMs or one Nano-SIM and a microSD card at a time. Storage is expandable up to an additional 256GB. On the bottom, there is (still) a Micro-USB port, the external speaker on the right, and a faux speaker grille on the left for symmetry. The 3.5mm headphone jack, microphone, and IR emitter are all placed on top of the smartphone.

Though the Redmi Note 6 Pro any kind of an IP-rating for dust/ water resistance, it does sport a water-repellant P2i coating, which should provide basic protection against spills and if you are caught in the rain.

The rear cameras are slightly improved. While there’s still a 12-megapixel primary autofocus sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary depth sensor, both have wider f/1.9 apertures compared to the cameras on last year’s model, theoretically allowing for more light to be captured for clearer shots. Daylight shots seemed crisp, in our limited time with the Redmi Note 6 Pro. We were unable to test low-light photography, but you can stay tuned for our final review, coming up soon, in which we will have full details of this phone’s camera performance.

redmi note 6 pro first impressions gadgets 360 inline Redmi Note 6 Pro

 

One of the major new features with this generation is the dual selfie camera setup. There is a 20-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor on the front for portrait shots. Photos taken in good lighting were clear, and the bokeh effect was accurate.

The Redmi Note 6 Pro, much like its predecessor, has an all-metal back with a smooth matte finish, making it slightly slippery. The large body is also a little difficult to hold. Xiaomi does help you with a bundled TPU case for a better grip. Weighing in at 182g, the Redmi Note 6 Pro feels solid in the hand and is only about 2g heavier than the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

At its core, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro disappointingly uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 as its predecessor. We would have preferred a slightly more powerful processor, such as the Snapdragon 660, which the Chinese phonemaker uses in its Mi A2 smartphone. Xiaomi could even have opted for the MediaTek Helio P60 SoC, now that Redmi smartphones are coming to India with MediaTek processors. However, we will have to wait till we can fully review the Redmi Note 6 Pro in order to find out whether this is still good enough, and whether Xiaomi has made any other tweaks to improve the usage experience.

There will be two variants of the Redmi Note 6 Pro in India – one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and the other with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Performance was smooth and we experienced no lag in the time we spent with the 6GB RAM variant. Our full review will detail performance benchmarks, extensive real-world usage, and more.

Redmi Note 6 Pro software

The Redmi Note 6 Pro runs MIUI 10 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo, with no official timelines announced for an Android 9.0 Pie update. As with previous MIUI-based Xiaomi smartphones, this one too comes with a tonne of customisations, proprietary apps, and additional features. For starters, there is a Security app with functions including a RAM cleaner, security scanner, battery manager, data usage overview, and more.

Preloaded apps on the phone include Amazon Shopping, Facebook, PhonePe, Netflix, NewsPoint, Dailyhunt, Opera News, Opera Mini, and BHIM ABPB. This phone also gets the ShareChat app, from an Indian company backed by Xiaomi.

The AI face unlock feature felt smooth on the Redmi Note 6 Pro. Registering a face was super fast, as was unlocking the handset. It isn’t quite as accurate as 3D face unlocking, considering it can unlock the phone even when you are not facing it. We will test this feature thoroughly in our upcoming review.

The Redmi Note 6 Pro has the same 4,000mAh battery capacity as its predecessor, and supports the same 10W level of charging. It has a battery saver mode that can be customised to cut out activity from apps that might be draining the battery in the background.

Stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for our extensive review of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, coming up very soon, in which we test its display, design, performance, software, battery life, camera, and value for money.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi Y2, Mi A2 Price in India Cut by Rs. 1,000


According to the latest IDC report, Xiaomi is the number one smartphone brand in India for Q3 2018. This makes Xiaomi reign in on the top position for the fifth consecutive quarter, and to celebrate this milestone, the Chinese giant has dropped the prices of three phones in India. India head Manu Kumar Jain has announced that Xiaomi is dropping the prices of the Xiaomi Mi A2, Xiaomi Redmi Y2, and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro by Rs. 1,000. The company says that the price cut has been possible due to the price reduction of some of its component costs.

Xiaomi says that it has reduced the prices of three phones – Xiaomi Mi A2, Xiaomi Redmi Y2, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro – by Rs. 1,000. Therefore, the Redmi Note 5 Pro 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, which was earlier priced at Rs. 14,999, is now priced at Rs. 13,999. Similarly, the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant, which was earlier priced at Rs. 16,999, is now priced at Rs. 15,999.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant, which was earlier priced at Rs. 16,999, is now priced at Rs. 15,999. The Xiaomi Mi A2 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, which was earlier priced at Rs. 19,999, is now priced at Rs. 18,999. And lastly, the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 4GB RAM + 64GB variant also sees a price cut from Rs. 12,999 to Rs. 11,999. Xiaomi notes that all of these new prices will come into effect from 12pm IST today, across all sales platforms.

To recall, Xiaomi had increased the price of the Redmi Note 5 Pro variant in May this year, due to changes in PCBA import taxes and the rupee depreciation. The price of the 4GB RAM variant was increased back then by Rs. 1,000, and now the new price introduced by Xiaomi today brings it back to the original launch price.

Apart from the price drops, Jain separately also announced that Xiaomi is launching the Redmi Note 6 Pro in India on November 22.

Xiaomi ‘Flash Sale’ Angers Customers in the UK, Company Apologises


Xiaomi launched operations in the United Kingdom earlier this month with the Mi 8 Pro, Redmi 6A, and Mi Band 3. In classic Xiaomi fashion, the Chinese phone maker held certain ‘Crazy Deal’ flash sales wherein it claimed to offer a couple of its smartphone models at a price of GBP 1 or about Rs. 94. However, the units sold out in a flash, which is what usually happens when Xiaomi hosts these deals during festive sales in the Indian market as well. The development has created a furore in the UK market and Xiaomi UK has issued an apology for any kind of misunderstanding on the issue.

Much like what Xiaomi does in the Re. 1 flash sales in India, most frequently during its ‘Diwali With Mi’ festive sales, the company planned to host these extremely affordable flash sales in the UK for launch. Renaming it ‘Flash Sale’ from ‘Crazy Deal’ is what Xiaomi believes generated anger amongst UK fans. Xiaomi made 10 units of its smartphones available at that GBP 1 price tag, and now says that UK customers usually associate the phrase ‘Flash Sale’ with something that has more than 10 units up for sale.

“We can confirm that 10 customers have purchased a Xiaomi device for GBP 1. Of the thousands who clicked ‘buy’ simultaneously, our system randomly selected the winners, and he or she should have been able to add this item to the shopping cart and pay for this handset at GBP 1. No changes to the T&C were made that impacted the promotion itself in any way,” said Xiaomi UK in a tweet clarifying the issue.

The UK’s ads watchdog has received a complaint and is deciding on whether to investigate, reports BBC UK. BBC claims that the fact that only a limited number of units would be sold in this ‘flash sale’ was not mentioned on the main sales page. Instead, it was buried halfway on the terms and conditions landing page, the link for which was in the footer of the website.

A user on Twitter alleges that the script of the website shows that the Buy Now button on these products was set to automatically switch to ‘out of stock’ without checking for stock limits when the timer went off.

The BBC report also claims that Xiaomi held a similar flash sale in Spain last year where it provided a total of 50 units at EUR 1 (roughly Rs. 81).

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Starts Receiving MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM Update in India


Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Starts Receiving MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM Update in India

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is receiving the update via OTA

In a new development, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is now receiving the MIUI 10 Global ROM update. Users in India particularly are receiving the update, and Xiaomi announces that this is a nightly global stable update, which means few random users will get the update first, and after receiving feedback, all users will get the MIUI 10 Stable Global ROM. Xiaomi announced the MIUI 10 Global ROM at an event in September, and has since then rolled out the stable version to Redmi Note 5, Poco F1, Redmi Note 5 Pro, and Redmi Y2 users.

On its Mi India forums, Xiaomi has announced that the MIUI 10 Nightly Global Stable V10.1.1.0.NCFMIFI for Redmi Note 4 is being pushed to random users in India. The update is being pushed via OTA, and because it’s a nightly stable update, it may be a while before all users see the update. Some users have already started reporting of the update arriving on their phone, and have shared screenshots on the forums as well.

For those who aren’t seeing it yet, Xiaomi should begin a public rollout soon, and therefore its recommended to keep checking for the latest MIUI 10 ROM by going to Settings > About phone > System updates > Check for updates.

Based on screenshots posted by Redmi Note 4 users, the changelog suggests that MIUI 10 Global Stable ROM brings full-screen gestures, redesigned volume sliders, improved multi-tasking management, natural sound system, redesigned notification panel, and more.

The Redmi Note 4 is part of the second wave rollout for the MIUI 10 update, and the company has reportedly confirmed that a total of 21 devices will get the update. Earlier this month, Xiaomi Poco F1 also started receiving the MIUI Global Stable ROM update
