The release of Xiaomi drones with rotating camera

Xiaomi official has confirmed that, at 7 PM on May 25, will release Xiaomi drones by live APP. This is the first time to launch news conference via live and also the first time in unmanned aerial vehicle (uav). For this product, Lei Jun says, playing drones let everybody can enjoy the freedom of flying and see the scenery that you cannot see often.

Xiaomi, meanwhile, also released a demo video. In this video some of the uav design details were exposed.

From the video, Xiaomi unmanned aerial vehicle (uav) is adopted four-rotor design. The camera is the ball shape and supports to rotate 360 degrees (still not sure). According to the previous habit of Xiaomi, Xiaomi should launch standard version and advanced version according to different users. For example, users may need to purchase another camera with the standard version



According to previous reports, Xiaomi unmanned aerial vehicle (uav) can achieve 4K@30fps shooting and optical flow localization. Its software and hardware is for big xinjiang 3A/3P and even go beyond it on some of the parts.

Xiaomi Redmi 3A has confirmed and it will support VoLTE technology

Although in the first half of year Xiaomi has been focused on digging up high-end market, for the low-end series of Redmi, there is no plan at all. A few days ago, a list of China mobile models that supports VoLTE includes Xiaomi Redmi 3A unexpectedly, which not only means Redmi 3A will support VoLTE and it is likely to be released soon.

Redmi 3A seems to have won the MIIT certification. The look is similar with Redmi 3. .At the same time, it carries eight core 1.5 GHz processor, built-in 2GB of ram and 16GB extensible storage, 13MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera. It includes 4000mAh and double 4G network.

A code-named “Xaiomi Land” product also appears in GFXBench database. The device is considered to be Redmi 3A. But the configuration is a slightly different from MIIT’s. for example, “Xaiomi Land” carries Snapdragon 435 1.4GHz eight-core processor and built-in 3GB of memory. As Redmi series model, the price of Redmi 3A should not be too high. So you might as well guess?

Huawei P9 vs Honor V8: Same Specs, Exactly Why So Differently Priced?

After Huawei Mate 8, this Chinese smartphone giant announced the brand new Huawei P9 series smartphones back in April. Almost a month later, the company released another flagship series model, this time in the Huawei Honor series, called as the Honor V8. These two are very similar models, with similar specs and similar design. But when it comes to the pricing of the two handsets, they differ quite significantly. Now, this brings us to the main question, why would Huawei release two different smartphones with similar design and specs in two different series? And why is there such significant difference in the pricing of the two handsets when they are so similar? We attempt to find answers in this article.

First let’s look at the design of both the handsets. Surprisingly, Huawei decided to use the same design as the Huawei P9 series on the new Honor V8 as well. While companies try to differentiate two different series with its own unique design, it looks like Huawei felt that both the phones should have the same design, which in my opinion looks pretty good. But if you had to differentiate between the two models, you would find the fingerprint sensor at the back to be slightly different. And of course, the logos are different, with the P9 coming with ‘Huawei’ branding while V8 coming with ‘Honor’ branding at the back.

Even the specs, including the dual camera setup at the back are similar. But there’s nearly a difference of 1000 Yuan ($153) between the models in the V8 and P9 series. So, why this difference in pricing?

The only major difference between the two models is the Leica certification on the Huawei P9 and its absence on the V8’s dual cameras. Let’s take a look at the setup in detail.

Huawei P9 vs Honor V8 Dual Cameras:

Huawei P9 comes with a 12MP dual camera setup with the components being developed to meet’s Leica’s strict standards. The company reportedly collaborated with Leica to co-engineer the structure of the camera module. Plus, the phone comes with Huawei’s digital image processing. Then there are Laser Autofocus and dual tone LED flash to assist the dual cameras in photography.

Coming to the Honor V8, even this particular device features 12MP dual camera setup. But Lecia was not involved in the development of V8’s dual camera module. But the basic idea remains the same as the P9’s setup. The phone features 1 RGB sensor which collects colour information and another black and white sensor. These two work together to take pictures. The module supports depth of field, laser autofocus and larger aperture ranging from f/0.95 to f/16.

As you can see, on paper, the V8’s dual cameras also looks like a powerful setup, but only when we have real camera samples from both the P9 and the V8 can we ascertain how better the P9 Leica branded camera is as compared to the V8’s setup.

Since we have seen that the major difference in the camera department was the Leica branding, let’s look at what specs both phones bring to the table.

Huawei P9 vs Honor V8 Specs:

The Huawei P9 comes with the Kirin 955 octa-core chipset which is very capable as seen in the earlier benchmarks. There will be 4GB of RAM on board along with 64GB memory, and 1080p 5.2-inch display. This particular configuration on the P9 will cost you 3688 Yuan ($563).

On the other hand, the Huawei V8 comes with Kirin 950 (slightly under clocked) with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 5.7-inch 2K display and NFC. This particular model in the V8 series costs 2799 Yuan ($427).

Now, as you can clearly see in the above comparison, the P9 series with similar specs (in fact it comes with just 1080p display as compared to 2K on the V8) costs 1000 Yuan ($153) more than the Honor V8. Leica branding is what drives up the cost of the P9.

End of the day, what matters is whether the Huawei P9 takes better pictures and videos than the Honor V8. If it does, than the difference in the pricing is justified and I am sure, consumers would be more than happy to shell out more for an advanced camera module. We hope to get these two smartphones soon to see their camera performance.

So, what are your thoughts on the difference in the pricing of these two Huawei models?

Xiaomi’s Mi Max phone has a huge display and a big battery

Xiaomi’s next smartphone is a giant, dwarfing even its Mi Note and Mi Note Pro phablets in size. The new Mi Max comes with a 6.44-inch display and a beefy 4,850mAh battery — which is both welcome and necessary, given the number of pixels you’ll be pushing around every day. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 or 652 processor, as well as 4GB or 3GB of RAM, and 32GB or 128GB of internal storage. The two chipset choices are intriguing — most flagships, such as the Galaxy S7, are using the Snapdragon 820, leaving the 652 to mid-range devices like the LG G5 SE.

The design is eloquent, if a little by the numbers. It has a smooth, metal body with two faint antenna lines and the Mi logo etched on the back. It’ll be available in silver, gold or dark grey — the standard color set for a smartphone these days — when it goes on sale in China next week.

The new phone also coincides with the launch of MIUI 8, the latest version of Xiaomi’s custom Android skin. It’s a clean, colorful take with a few new software additions, such as a reworked gallery app and calculator. MIUI 8 also introduces the ability to “split” a phone into two separate accounts, with a different passcode lock, home screen and apps. You can also “clone” apps which don’t provide intuitive account switching. That means you can set up two versions of the same app, both with a separate login, and bounce between them using the home screen or Xiaomi’s app switcher.

Xiaomi’s Mi Max comes with a fingerprint sensor for security and convenient unlocking. On the back, you’ll find a 16-megapixel camera, while the front is equipped with a 5-megapixel selfie snapper, complete with a wide-angle lens. None of this sounds too extraordinary until you consider the starting price: 1,499 RMB ($230). That’ll net you the lower-specced option with the Snapdragon 650, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Spend 1,699 RMB ($261) instead and you’ll be upgraded to the Snapdragon 652 and 64GB of storage; the top option, which runs for 1,999 RMB ($307), ups the RAM to 4GB and the onboard storage to 128GB.

All three option are cheaper than what the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro sold for in 2015. Those devices are slightly smaller, however, with a 5.7-inch display and some specs that, even by today’s standards, are pretty competitive (they run on a Snapdragon 810, with the option of either 3GB or 4GB of RAM). The Mi Max, then, is likely to be a complimentary device, rather than a direct replacement. It will also sit alongside the Mi 5, Xiaomi’s new flagship announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Meizu MX6 is coming again!

A set of new photos was released by the people of science and technology. After some people recognized, and yes, this Meizu MX6 new product. From the photos you can see, the MX6 seems to be special on the design. It uses the hidden antenna design and the integrity appears to be better. However, the traditional general projection camera still retains. From the appearance, you can’t see the ring type flashlight of the Meizu PRO 6.



Meizu MX6 is adopted mediatek Helio X20 processors, and there are two versions: 3GBRAM+32GBROM and 4GBRAM+64GBROM. The screen is upgraded to the samsung new generation 5.5 -inch Super AMOLED screen with 2.5 D curve, but 3D Press is sure to be missed. The overall configuration is between the PRO 6 and Meizu note 3. I think the price will be estimated in 1799RMB. For Meizu that frequently releases new products, everybody also can accurately distinguish these a few models: Meizu M3 note, Meizu M3 and PRO 6?

Here’s how the Huawei P9’s dual-camera system works

Huawei unveiled its latest flagship smartphone this morning, the P9, and the big story here is its camera — or really, its camera system, since there are two of them. In the past, dual-camera systems have been used for 3D or focus-changing gimmicks, but Huawei has taken a different approach: the P9’s two cameras only take one photo, but it’s supposed to be of a much higher quality. Here’s how that works.

What’s the second camera for?

The P9’s two cameras do two different things. One camera has a traditional RGB sensor, meaning it takes color photos; the other has a monochrome sensor, meaning it only captures scenes in black and white. That isn’t so you can take black-and-white photos (although you can do that, if you want to), it’s so the P9 has more information to work with when processing what the camera sees.

Okay, but why is black and white helpful?

It may sound counterintuitive, but a monochrome sensor can capture more detail from a scene than a color sensor (aside from, you know, the actual color). That’s because a monochrome sensor is only interested in how much light is coming in at any given point and doesn’t have to concern itself with what color the light is. RGB sensors have to filter out light in order to determine which colors go where. In doing so, they lose detail that could otherwise be used to make a sharper image. Huawei claims that using two sensors lets the P9 capture 270 percent more light than an iPhone 6S, and 70 percent more light than a Galaxy S7.

So how do the two cameras work together?

The two cameras capture a photo simultaneously, and then the P9 uses the strengths from both to create a single image that’s better than either could make on its own. The color camera is critical for producing the standard color photo that everyone wants. But by combining its color information with the richer detail and sharpness of the monochrome image, you get a result that, theoretically, looks a lot better than a single camera of its size and quality should be able to produce. That should be particularly noticeable in bright highlights and dark shadows, where detail can easily get washed out or missed by smaller sensors.

Why not just use one really good camera?

Because that’s hard to do on a smartphone. If you want better photos, that typically means using a bigger camera sensor, which can capture more light and therefore add more detail. But smartphones are getting smaller and smaller, so the choice increasingly looks like: add a camera bump, or find a clever workaround. Huawei went with the latter.

Leica may be involved, but don’t expect the P9 to have lenses meeting Leica’s legendary quality. Instead, the P9 has lenses that are being called “Leica certified,” which is supposed to mean that Leica had a hand in their development. But Leica has a habit of slapping its name on other companies’ cameras more or less just to make them look better than they are, and that’s probably what’s happening here. Leica’s involvement may well have been helpful, but don’t put too much stock in it.

Why are there multiple focus modes?

Depending on what you’re shooting, the P9 uses a mode better suited to the scene. For subjects up close, the P9 uses laser focusing. This is a pretty standard technique that we’ve seen roll out to a lot of other smartphones recently, including the Huawei-made Nexus 6P — it involves measuring how long it takes for a laser to reach its target and bounce back, letting the camera know how far away its subject is. For shooting objects off in the distance, the P9 is able to figure out what to focus on essentially the same way the human eye can, triangulating its subject using two points of view. If neither of those are working, the phone can also use contrast detection, which is typically slower.

How come the camera’s live previews look so good?

Huawei isn’t just relying on what the P9’s camera captures — it’s also improving it in software by simulating bokeh, the out-of-focus blooms of light you often see in the back of photographs. The goal is to give the P9’s photos a look closer to what you’d get out of a larger, nicer camera. The effect is adjustable, so you aren’t stuck with whatever the software decides on. In fact, the entire camera can be operated in manual mode.

Does it actually take good photos?

That’s the most important question of all! Huawei has released a handful of sample photos from the P9, and for the most part, they look really impressive. But so do most carefully selected sample photos, whether they come from the Moto X, Xiaomi Mi 5, Lumia 950, or any other smartphone. Here’s a gallery of what Huawei has published so far, but take them with a grain of salt.

How to get the most out of your mobile phone battery

Running out of battery is one of the worst things that can happen to mobile phone users, am I right? Sitting on Facebook, checking emails or even playing our favourite game, we all dread that 25% or 14% battery warning whilst out and away from our chargers. So, with this in mind, here are some top tips on how to boost your mobile phone battery life and how to help your battery stay healthy for longer.

HOW TO BOOST BATTERY LIFE
We all like to think we are getting the most out of our mobile phone batteries, but what if you could get that little bit more? Finally complete that level on Candy Crush? Check that all important email from work or have those few extra minutes on the phone with your friends and family. You might be surprised at just how simple boosting your battery performance can be. Here’s how you can do it.

Auto Brightness – This is found in the Settings menu under Display – Brightness. Having this turned on means you do not need to have your brightness turned up to 100% as the device will adjust the display brightness so you can see it in whatever lighting conditions.

Killing Wi-Fi can improve standby time
Wi-Fi – Wi-Fi is what we call a ‘background running’ service. This means it quietly runs in the background of the device not affecting your day-to- day use, but what it’s actually doing is constantly searching for Wi-Fi networks to connect to. Found in the Settings menu under Wi-Fi Settings, by turning this off whilst you’re out and turning it on when you’re at home when it’s being used, you will see over time your device standby time will increase.
Bluetooth – Like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth is a background running service. We use Bluetooth for all our hands-free kits and speakers, whether we’re transferring files from our smartphone to another, or sending things such as music and photos. However, many of us will forget to turn Bluetooth off when we aren’t using it, which can be a big drain on smartphone battery and leave us running low pretty quickly. Found in the Settings menu second option Bluetooth, turn it off when it’s not in use and you’ll quickly see a big difference in battery life.
Multitasking – All smartphone and tablet devices have a multitasking feature: a list of all applications that are still running in the background, which helps the app load quicker when you go on it again. If you’re not going to use a running app for a long period of time, then you can give your battery life a boost by stopping it. To do this, go into the Settings menu and select Application Manager (Android 4.0 onwards) or Applications (Android 3.0). This will display a list of running apps; just select the apps you’re not using and hit Force Stop. This will also help your device become more responsive when using it in day-to-day tasks.
