Oneplus 6

Oneplus, the recent trending company just Launched its new Smartphone with all its glory. The Oneplus 6, everyone calls it the True Flagship. But what does the word flagship denotes? The word Flagship means “the best or most important thing owned or produced by a particular organization”. Flagship phones are the baddest and the most powerful device, which every phone in the world dreams to be. Looking to the Specs Sheet of the newly launched smartphone, it seems to be the Best Flagship looking to its Price and the features it provides in that Budget Price.

The is that Fast and that precise, that it Launches there every Smartphone in every six months. But were surprised about the Product they reveal. Every Product they Reveal is considered as the Best Budget Flagship for that time period. And that’s Good for the Company to Grow in this smartphone era.

The Brand Ambasedar of Oneplus India, Amitabh Bachchan, was Present during the Oneplus 6 India Launch. It was a Great Launch in India and Amitabh Bachchan also Addressed how Oneplus 6 Owner has the Superiority holding this Smartphone. He added that the phone using by a person reveals the mindset and thoughts of that person. And the Person Holding Oneplus 6 will be Superior.

 

Specifications:

The Oneplus 6 has been made with the Gorilla Glass 5 front and back. There are three variants, There’s a mirror black, midnight black, and a silk white. The mirror black is actually designed to look like a ceramic material but without the weight. So glass backed phones like the current iPhone 10 and the Samsung s9 have a very obvious kind of glass surface to the back of It and it looks good.

The mirror black finish on the Oneplus 6 has that look and they’ve done it by putting this film underneath the Gorilla Glass 5 so it just gives it this distinctly different looking reflection It’s really hard to describe, but it looks really unique in person the midnight black is the second color option on the Oneplus 6 and it uses this acid etched glass and basically they’re using a Corrosion process on the Gorilla Glass 5 to give it a fantastic texture. It’s this smooth satin finish to the glass It’s very similar in feel to the trackpads on a MacBook Pro. It’s just it’s got that silky smooth finish to it It hides fingerprints better than your average glass or aluminum finish if you just look at it, though It doesn’t look different aesthetically, but when you touch it, it feels phenomenal. It’s kind of weird to feel the phone that has this kind of texture to it now, aesthetically I think that the mirror black finish looks more standout it is a distinctly different look. But if you’re looking for like a tactile experience that’s different from most other phones out there.

The third color optionally have is a silk white. It’s a white colored back with a rose gold finish for the metal frame the white material has this Pearlescent look to the finish. It is a limited edition, and it’s not available yet so if you want a white phone at launch, You probably gonna have to put a skin on it the white marble skin looks really good on the Oneplus 6.

 

The Screen, Yes it has a notch, but I don’t feel as bothered by this notch as I do from other phones for one. I feel like I kind of expected it Oneplus was showing pictures of this notch for quite a while. But the big reason is that the top and bottom bezels are thin and if they’re trying to maximize screen real estate here I understand why they’re using a notch in 2018.

You can hide it the software has a setting to make it less pronounced and because it’s an AMOLED panel. It does a pretty good job at masking it out. It’s still a 1080p panel, but it’s a very nice-looking display. It’s a large display six point two eight inches it’s noticeably bigger than the Oneplus 5t screen, but the device itself is essentially the same size.

The Cameras have been updated obviously and this year they’ve brought back optical image stabilization, Something that I felt like they were missing from the Oneplus 5 and the 5t because OIS helps with everything especially for low-light photos.

 

lastly software:

This thing’s shipping with Android 8.1 and it obviously has their oxygen OS on it, it’s carrying over the gestures that we see in the current 5 T software and it’s still pretty early stages in the implementation but Navigation is really easy to get used to you swipe up to go home and then the back buttons are triggered with sliding up from the side it sounds weird. But it’s really easy to get used to and the idea here like the notch is to maximize your screen real estate.

 

All the other classic Oneplus goodness is still here.

  • You get the fastest Snapdragon processor the 845, so it’s going to be faster and more energy efficient.
  • You get your dash charging. So that’s a full day of power in 30 minutes.
  • You get that super fast face unlock which is still weird to me as to how fast it is compared to other flagships.
  • you get the Oneplus alert slider, which is a little bit different this year, it’s on the right side.
  • you also get your headphone jack, which is important for a lot of the Oneplus fans.

Huawei Matebook 13: Macbook Air killer

Published

on

Matebook 13

Huawei’s Matebook X which was released last year was considered as the MacBook Pro killer as it provided a lot of features which the MacBook Pro provided at a much affordable price. And this year, Huawei is back with Huawei Matebook 13 which offers specification between the ultra-slim Matebook X and the pocket-friendly Matebook D.

MateBook 13

With Matebook 13’s premium Aluminum alloy and metal unibody finish, Intel Whiskey lake processor and thin bezel display, it can be clearly observed as a competitor for the Apple’s new 2018 MacBook Air. The release took place at CES 2019. Let’s have a closer look at the details of Matebook 13.

Starting with the display, it has 13-inch 3:2 touchscreen display which is super sharp with 2,160 x 1,440 resolution. Display provides rich colors with ample viewing angles. Taking a look towards the bezels, company says they are 4.4mm thin providing 88 percent screen to body ratio which is 6 percent more than the rivals MacBook Air with 82 percent screen to body ratio.

Moving to the keyboard, Matebook 13 offers a bigger touchpad than usual which will help you with better space and provide the rich user experience. Matebook 13 comes with an edge-to-edge comfortable keyboard with a 1.2mm travel between each key which is efficient to provide smooth and fast typos which makes it a thumbs up for those who hate Macbook Air’s low-travel keyboard although it is also pretty good. The keycaps barely come out and are not too loud or clicky. It has embedded fingerprint sensor on the power button which makes it easier to wake the computer up by just scanning the finger. With fingerprint sensors come to the security and to enhance it, Huawei has provided an independent security chip for storing the biometrics.

Huawei Matebook 13

Let’s have a look over the heart of the machine. The Matebook 13 is very capable machine in terms of processing. The device will have two configurations in the US. The higher-end version packs in eight-generation Intel Core i7-8565U chipset coupled with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics card, on the other hand, low-end version ships with Intel Core i5 and Intel’s UHD620 graphics. Both the versions of Matebook 13 will have 8GB of RAM which will be standard considering the price range. The Matebook 13 having quad-core will be having a good multitasking ability which will be a serious upgrade than the MacBook Air which includes a dual-core processor.

Although providing the great performance the weight and thickness of the device matters a lot. The Matebook 13 comes with a 14.9mm thickness which company says is 6 percent thinner than the 2k18 MacBook Air which has 15.9mm thickness. Although the Matebook 13 is thinner than the MacBook Air, it weighs 2.82 pounds which is heavier than the 2.75 pounds MacBook Air.

The Matebook 13 has squeezed a lot of powerful chipsets in such a small device which they mention is due to Shark Fin 2.0 thermal setup which has the capability to handle 8,000 rpm without overheating the device. Huawei has provided dual fan system placing them between the CPU and GPU which enables to separate the heat and also accomplish 25 percent higher volume than a traditional fan. The company also says that cooling system uses an “intelligent filtering solution” which is claimed to manage performance and reduce the fan noise.

Huawei also praised the Shark Fin 2.0 setup for helping them to dedicate almost 50 percent of the laptops underhood space to embed massive 42Whr battery but it is bit smaller as compared to the 57Whr battery of Macbook Air. According to the Huawei’s claim, the low-end version, which is Core i5 Matebook 13, will last up to 10 hours while playing a 1080p video which will be great if it is able to hold on its words.

Following the previous models of Matebooks, the Matebook 13 also comes with two USB-C ports and one headphone jack. But Huawei has included a dock which places in USB – A port, USB-C port, VGA and HDMI port as well. Webcams are important for the video conferences and to help with it, the Matebook 13 houses a one-megapixel camera into its bezel, which makes it at a better place as compared to Matebook X Pro which hid the webcam under one of the keys in the keyboard.

With a webcam you also need good speakers to make the video conferences lively and to do so, the Matebook 13 has two speakers docked into the keyboard with Dolby support giving out the crisp and clear sound.

Huawei also provides a 65W USB-C power adapter which can be used for fact charging the laptop. The Matebook 13 is claimed to provide 2.5 hours of “office work” which may include working with spreadsheets, emails, internet surfing etc. when charged for 15 minutes.

At last, if we list the highs of the device it will go as follows:

  • High performance with Whiskey Lake processor
  • Efficient design making is slim and light
  • High screen to body ratio
  • Affordable price

The Matebook 13 truly looks a well-built laptop to compete with Apple Macbook Air. The base version of Matebook 13 which includes Core i5 with 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM will be available in Silver color and will cost $999 and the higher end version with Core i7 with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics and 512GB SSD will start from $1,299. The Matebook 13 will be on sale from January 29 on Amazon and Newegg.

What is Flipkart?

What is Flipkart?

Flipkart is India’s Amazon. It’s the country’s largest online retailer. In 2018 retail giant Walmart announced its intention to acquire a controlling stake in the company for $16 billion, making this the largest e-commerce acquisition, ever.

Flipkart was founded here in Bangalore in 2007 by Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal, two Indian software engineers, that happen to share the same surname. They both worked for Amazon in the U.S. before returning to India to start their company.

Like Amazon, Flipkart began as an online bookstore. In its first full year of business, it delivered nearly three and half thousand shipments of books. Now its website has 10 million page visits a day and sells more than 80 different categories of goods, which includes everything from food processors to yoga mats.

This expansion has been supported by the company’s own digital ecosystem. In 2009 it founded Ekart, its in-house supply chain arm.

Ekart is now India’s largest logistics company delivering 10 million shipments a month for Flipkart, as well as independent brands and sellers. It also owns PhonePe, an app the company acquired in 2016, which helps facilitate electronic payments throughout the country. In addition, Flipkart’s purchase of two of India’s leading online fashion retailers, Myntra and Jabong ensured the company remained the leading player in India’s online retail industry.

Flipkart’s strong position in the market attracted $1.4 billion of investment in 2017 from the Indian e-commerce market as a whole is set to quadruple to $200 billion in the next eight years, and by 2034 it’s predicted to surpass the U.S. as the second largest e-commerce market in the world.

The predicted growth in e-commerce has increased competition between the big online retailers. Amazon has been taking on Flipkart in its own backyard. Both have been offering massive sales and discounts pegged to Indian festivals as they battle it out for more customers.

While Amazon’s size and profitable cloud computing service allows it to absorb these costs, Flipkart has suffered losses in its struggle to compete. However, the Flipkart Group as a whole still has the largest share of the market and remains the e-commerce leader in India.

Walmart’s online sales, however, account for just a little more than three and a half percent of its business in the U.S. Acquiring Flipkart gives them a considerable foothold in the sector. Yet when news of the deal broke, the American retailer’s shares tumbled four percent with investors concerned that the company had a long way to go before becoming profitable. The acquisition of a loss-making business also cut Walmart’s profits at the end of 2018 and its earnings outlook for 2019.

The company also warned that e-commerce growth would be slower next year. For Flipkart, Walmart’s investment is seen by many as a major boost to the company’s logistical operations. It will also help it move into new areas like online groceries. Along with a strong food supply chain, Walmart’s financial support will also help Flipkart keep prices low in its battle with Amazon.

Several key investors have exited the company, including co-founder Sachin Bansal, and they leave with hefty profits. Venture capital firms Accel and Tiger Global invested when Flipkart was valued at just $50 million. They have now pocketed more than 400 times what they invested and still retain some shares.

Softbank is also a big beneficiary of the deal. Its Vision Fund invested $2.5 billion in 2017 and in just over 12 months the Japanese company sold its 20% stake for $4 billion.

Co-founder Binny Bansal had planned to stay on as the company’s chief executive but resigned after an internal investigation into serious personal misconduct following an accusation of sexual assault. He still owns 4.2% of the company and remains a director on the board. Amid the controversy Walmart increased its stake in the $20 billion company from 77 percent to 81.3 percent, offering another sign of its support of an online retail market that is still small by global standards.

The value and sale of Flipkart to a major corporation like Walmart will likely encourage investors to see India’s e-commerce market as an area of growth. Already the Indian startup Ola is competing fiercely with Uber in the taxi aggregation market and both have Softbank as a major shareholder.

As the world’s major tech companies focus more of their attention on India, Flipkart may be the first of many start-up success stories emerging from the growing e-commerce space.

So, do you think Flipkart has a chance against Amazon? Comment below to let us know.
