Xiaomi Mi A3 could be in development

In recent times, XDA-Developers editor, Mishaal Rahman, has been doing a lot of work digging up codenames and succinct specs of suspected smartphones and tablet. Recently, he came across some upcoming Huawei devices and now, he has a couple from Xiaomi. Rahman outed three codenames for upcoming smartphones. They are Bamboo_sprout, cosmos_sprout, and Pyxis. The suffix “sprout” often appears in Xiaomi’s Android One phone which has sparked speculation that the Xiaomi Mi A3 could be in development. The Xiaomi Mi A1 was codenamed as “tissot_sprout” and the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite were codenamed as “jasmine_sprout” and “daisy_sprout” respectively. All this confirms that the device will possibly be the Xiaomi Mi A3 smartphone.

 
He said that the three mobile phones are based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 series platform. The Xiaomi Android One phones usually come with mid-range chips thus its possible that these names are for the upcoming Xiaomi Mi A3 series. If Xiaomi uses a Snapdragon 700 platform on the Mi A3, it will be quite popular outside China, especially in India. 

Of course, the Snapdragon 700 Series processor has been advanced up to Snapdragon 730/730G chip. It is based on the 8nm LPP process and features two large cores + six small core designs. Specifically, it uses a 2 x Kryo 470 (A76) + 6 x Kryo 470 (A55). The CPU clock frequency is 2.2GHz and 1.8GHz respectively while the GPU is Adreno 618.

Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, will unveil a couple of flagship smartphones before the year ends. We have already seen the Xiaomi Mi 9 thus we should be expecting some “cheap” flagship from Pocophone and Redmi. However, we should also have a “real” flagship in the Xiaomi Mi Mix series, probably Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. Today, XDA-Developers editor Mishaal Rahman unveiled some specs allegedly belonging to a Xiaomi flagship.

 
The flagship smartphone is codenamed “Hercules” and it should feature a Snapdragon 855, NFC, triple rear camera, a single front camera, an on-display fingerprint scanner, and wireless charging. Well, we know that features like the on-display fingerprint scanner and wireless charging make a phone really expensive. Thus this does not fit the price range of Pocophone or Redmi sub-brands. It should be the upcoming flagship in the Mi MIX series, Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. 

The previous generations of the Mi MIX series, Xiaomi Mi MIX 3, comes with a true full-screen design using a magnetic slide and the front camera with other sensors are hidden under the screen. Although it is not clear if the Mi MIX 4 will use the same design, the Mi MIX series are known to be notchless. Thus this should be a full-screen notchless smartphone.

The Redmi Note 7 marketing campaign has seen the handset take a lot of beating and pummelling in various durability tests before release. But now, the company has just pulled off one more campaign to prove that the budget handset is “out of the world” good. And that’s by literally sending it out of the world. Yes, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun today posted a video of the process where three units were nestled to a gas balloon and launched into space.

 
The Note 7 units were fitted in a custom rig that was supposed to rise as high as 30 KM into the atmosphere with a temperature of -60 degree C. The 3D printed frame was designed to protect the handsets at that high altitude. But what do we readers get from all this?
 
 
Well, the first pictures of the earth taken from a Redmi Note 7 in space. And we can assure you, it might appear to be flat but it is not. Jokes aside, the latest Redmi Note is one of the best budget handsets right now sporting a Snapdragon 660 SoC and a premium glass-metal design.

Пользователи телевизоров и медиаплееров под управлением системы Android TV обнаружили в главном меню раздел Promotional Channels с рекламными материалами. Оно появилось после последнего обновления системы. 



О появлении рекламы сообщили пользователи «умных» телевизоров Sony, медиаплееров Mi Box 3 от Xiaomi, Nvidia Shield TV и других устройств. Они не нашли возможности отключить объявления — пользователю Reddit под ником Felisens удалось убрать рекламу только после отката обновлений системного приложения Android TV Core Services



В Google сообщили XDA Developers, что тестируют рекламу для повышения вовлеченности пользователей. «Android TV стремится оптимизировать и персонализировать домашние развлечения. Изучая новые возможности привлечения пользователей, мы запускаем пилотную программу для отображения спонсируемого контента на главном экране Android TV», — сказали в компании.

Власти Китая ни при чём, так как они обычно блокируют сайты на уровне домена



Браузеры китайских компаний Tencent, Alibaba, Xiaomi и Qihoo 360 начали блокировать репозиторий 996.ICU на GitHub, где разработчики жаловались на переработки в местных компаниях. 



Репозиторий 996.ICU был создан, чтобы поднять проблему переработки в китайских компаниях, в том числе в Alibaba. В репозитории разработчики жаловались на 12-часовой рабочий день, шестидневную рабочую неделю и неоплачиваемые переработки. 



Пользователи рассказали, что не могут открыть страницу 996.ICU через браузер UC Browser, который принадлежит Alibaba, QQ Browser от Tencent, браузер в оболочке MIUI от Xiaomi и браузер 360 компании Qihoo 360. В остальных браузерах репозиторий доступен, например, в Chrome, Firefox и Opera

Представлен смартфон Xiaomi Redmi 7

Для своего суббренда Redmi компания Xiaomi приготовила самые бюджетные смартфоны, которые вполне приятны по характеристикам. Это демонстрирует и новичок Redmi 7, который сегодня был представлен официально. За версию с минимальным объемом оперативной и встроенной памяти производитель запросил $105. Но в Китае.

 

Смартфон Redmi 7 получил дисплей с диагональю 6,26 дюйма и разрешением HD+. Устройство работает на чипе Snapdragon 632 с 8-ядерным процессором тактовой частотой до 1,8 ГГц. На задней панели смартфона размещается двойная камера из основного сенсора на 12 МП и датчика глубины на 2 МП. На лицевой панели находится селфи-камера на 8 МП. Емкость батареи смартфона равна 4000 мАч.

 

В продаже будут три версии смартфона со следующими вариациями памяти: 2/16 ГБ оперативной/встроенной за $105, 3/32 ГБ за $120 и 4/64 ГБ за $150.

Китайская компания Xiaomi выпустила бета-версию прошивки для Pocophone F1. Главная особенность апдейта заключается в добавлении поддержки видеосъемки в Ultra HD с кадровой частотой 30 к/сек.

Стоит отметить, что ранее Xiaomi Pocophone F1 уже мог записывать 4K видео при 30 fps, но только при использовании сторонних приложений.

Теперь же такая опция появилась и в проприетарном приложении камеры.

Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, is working on its first flagship for the year, Xiaomi Mi 9. So far, the company has succeeded in keeping the details of this smartphone but we know that it shares the same designer as the Xiaomi Mi 6. It also comes with a Snapdragon 855 SoC, triple rear camera setup and a 27W fast charge. However, this is about all that is known for now. Today, the general manager of Xiaomi Group’s public relations department, said via Weibo: “It comes faster than you know”. The major expectation from Xiaomi right now is the Xiaomi Mi 9 thus netizens believes that the Xiaomi Mi 9 might arrive faster than we expect. Could it be at MWC 2019? that would be a wide guess.

 

Recently, a Xiaomi device made it through TENAA and today, another got 3C certification although it comes with a 10W fast charge which suggests that it is probably for the upcoming Redmi phone. According to the 3C certification, there are two models M1902F1T and M1903F2A but there is no telling which device they represent.

 

If we consider the Xiaomi Mi 8 series, Xiaomi Mi 9 may likely come in many versions. The Mi 8 has at least five models but we know that it is a special series since the company used it to celebrate its eighth anniversary. If the Mi 9 will come in different models, there are a few possibilities. It could have the Mi 9 SE which would be a low variant coupled with Xiaomi Mi 9 Exploration Edition. Both Xiaomi Mi 6 and Xiaomi Mi 8 has Exploration editions.

Xiaomi Milk Steamer Announced

Xiaomi continues making kitchen products that not only make its assortment enlarge but also help the company in entering various niches. In the future, if it is not so now, this brand will be on everyone’s lips. As for today, the manufacturer launched the Xiaomi Milk Steamer, which is capable of quickly making a milk foam with a single key press. At the same time, it is priced at 299 yuan ($43) only.

 

Of course, it’s not made by Xiaomi itself. Instead, it is a third-party product, designed and made by Ningbo Xinxiang Technology Co., Ltd. Moreover, the manufacturer also provides an after-sales support, and customers can return it to the manufacturer within 7 days even for no reason.

 

Its main features are the one-click magnetic spin milking, hot milk function, separate cup body, and pull cup mouth design. The base is equipped with a DC motor with a maximum speed of 5,500rpm. In the process, the magnetic structure of the motor head drives the magnetic suspension component with magnetic force in the cup to rotate, which quickly produces fine milk foam.

The Xiaomi Milk Steamer supports three modes: normal temperature milk foam, hot milk foam, and hot milk. Among them, the machine uses the speed switching to achieve rapid and uniform heating when making hot milk. So no need to replace the magnetic suspension component. The maximum milk volume is 150ml when milking, and the maximum milk volume is 250ml when making hot milk.

 

The milk cup of the Xiaomi Milk Steamer is made of 316 stainless steel. After the milk foam making is finished, it is convenient to directly pour the milk foam as the flow rate is freely retractable.

 

In addition, the base cup body is designed separately. All electronic components and heating devices are designed on the base, and the cup can be directly put into the sink for washing.
