Xiaomi MIUI 9 to Be Last Update for 6 Smartphones

After supporting its dated hardware with fresh software builds for a while, Xiaomi says it is now suspending MIUI updates for six of its popular devices. The list of the devices in question includes the Mi 2/2S, Mi 4i, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi 2, Redmi 2 Prime, and the Mi Note that will receive MIUI 9 as their last stable ROM updates. Xiaomi, through a forum post, confirmed the latest move and mentioned that the old devices would not receive any closed beta and public beta versions following November 17. Therefore, the MIUI Global Beta ROM 7.11 has emerged as the last beta version for all those devices. The Beijing-based company is, however, set to roll out the MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM gradually for these phones. The update will be available as an over-the-air (OTA) release starting this December, up to January. In case, if you've already flashed your dated device with MIUI 9 Global Beta ROM, Xiaomi will soon provide some methods to help you flash to MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM. "MIUI performance is constantly improved to deliver a better and better system experience to all users. However, to ensure the best performance of MIUI, we have to make a tough decision of suspending the update of six devices after a long-time discussion and evaluation about the release time of devices, active users, hardware performance, etc," Xiaomi's MIUI team noted in the forum post. Notably, the list of old Xiaomi handsets includes models like the Mi 2/2S that was launched back in 2012 - five years from now. The handset, particularly, was debuted with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-based MIUI 5.0. Xiaomi started rolling out MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM for handsets such as the Redmi Note 4, Mi Max 2, and Mi Mix 2 earlier this month. The new MIUI version has enhanced notification alerts, split screen, animated icons, and smart photo editing. The company has also integrated a smart app launcher that suggests apps right from the home screen

[align=center]Apple's 'new' iPad 9.7-inch now available for pre-order in India [/align] Last month, Apple launched the 2017 variant of its 9.7-inch iPad with Retina display. It's an upgraded version of the 2014 model. And if you've been wanting to get your hands on one, there's good news for you.  The tablet is now available for pre-orders on Flipkart. The 'new' 9.7-inch iPad is priced at Rs 28,900 for the 32GB Wi-Fi only model and Rs 39,900 for the 32GB Wi-Fi+Cellular version.  Available in Silver, Gold and Space Gray colour variants, Apple's 9.7-inch iPad sports an aluminium unibody enclosure and a Retina display of 2048x1536 pixel resolution. It is powered by Apple's 64-bit A9 chipset, along with the M9 motion co-processor.  There's an 8MP rear autofocus camera with f/2.4 aperture, 5P lens and several shooting modes including Panorama, Timer, Hybrid IR Filter, Auto Image Stabilization and more. The camera can record Full HD resolution video at 30fps and slo-mo videos at 120fps. The 9.7-inch iPad also has a 1.2MP FaceTime HD camera with f/2.2 aperture and HD video recording.  The new iPad supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, GLONASS and LTE (cellular model only) as major connectivity options. It is backed by a 32.4Wh non-removable battery that is claimed to deliver up to 10 hours of web surfing.  For those unaware, Apple has already launched the 9.7-inch iPad with Retina display in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.  At the time of launch, Apple also announced its upgraded iPhone Mini 4 tablet. The tablet now comes with more internal storage at the same price. The 128GB Wi-Fi model costs $399 (approximately Rs 26,000), while the 128GB Wi-Fi+Cellular model starts at $529 (about Rs 34,500).

V5Plus Mobile on sales from Tomorrow

Smartphones manufacturer Vivo today said it has partnered with Flipkart for online sales of its V5Plus mobiles.  The matte Black V5Plus limited edition phone, priced at Rs 25,990, will be available for sale on the e-commerce platform from tomorrow, the company said in a statement.  "With this partnership, we aim to use the exclusive online market. As we cannot ignore the power of online medium, through this association we want to give a chance to consumers across both mediums," said Vivo India Chief Marketing Officer Vivek Zhang.

Moto E4 Plus to be launched soon

Lenovo-owned Motorola will soon update its E-series with the release of a new smartphone. The device will be allegedly called the Moto E4 Plus. Apparently, the phone has been passed through the Federal Communications Commission, which certified a Motorola device with the model number XT1773. This particular device that passed through the FCC packs a 5,000mAh non-removable battery capacity, making it the largest ever for a Motorola smartphone. The FCC filing shows the Moto E4 Plus will include 4G LTE connectivity, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi 802.11-n support, Bluetooth Low Energy (v4.2), and NFC. The handset will be powered by a MediaTek chipset. Evidently, Motorola is also preparing to release the Moto E4 smartphone. The device (XT1762) was certified earlier this week by the FCC. According to PhoneArena, the upcoming phone will feature a 2,800mAh battery, 16GB internal storage, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, and Dual-SIM support. Both smartphones are expected to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus will replace the Moto E3 and Moto E3 Power, which were released in September last year. With the upcoming E series now passing through the FCC we are certainly hoping to see these devices in the market in the coming months to come. Other than the updated E lineup, Motorola is working on the successors to the Moto Z and X series. As we said, there’s little to verify this information at the moment, but with Lenovo World 2017 the likely launch bad for all these devices, we expect to see a lot more speculation in the coming weeks.

OnePlus 3T to go ‘made in India’ from 2017

MUMBAI: China's OnePlus plans to make its 3T model in India from early next year to meet growing demand in the world's second-biggest smartphone market by users. OnePlus is ranked by technology researcher IDC as the third-biggest seller of premium phones selling for more than $300 in India, behind Samsung Electronics and China's Oppo. Earlier this year it discontinued a 2015 contract manufacturing deal with Foxconn Technology to make its mid-end X phones in southern India. Vikas Agarwal, general manager of OnePlus' Indian operations, said the company was now looking to make its new 3T phone in India, starting early next quarter. The company, a third of whose global sales are from India, says it has already received 200,000 registrations for buying the 3T model priced at 29,999 rupees ($442) since beginning sales this week on Amazon's India marketplace. "We actually probably have lost, I would say, maybe 30 percent of sales because of stock-outs," Agarwal told Reuters on Friday by telephone, referring to sales of the 3T and an earlier model. "The focus is on trying our best to meet the demand." He declined to comment on the manufacturing arrangement this time, but said OnePlus will work with multiple partners including, possibly, Foxconn. Agarwal said OnePlus had no immediate plan to sell through retail outlets and will continue to sell only on Amazon. But it does plan to open by early January a so-called experience centre in the southern Indian technology hub of Bengaluru, where customers can come and see OnePlus smartphones. OnePlus also plans to add six more service centres to its existing seven, Agarwal said. It also provides services through 60 third-party outlets.
