Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus Image Leak Reignites Launch Hopes

Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus Image Leak Reignites Launch Hopes

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Mi 6 Plus back cover image is identical to the Mi 6
  • The leak indicates that the smartphone could launch soon
  • The Mi 6 Plus is expected to sport a 5.7-inch display

Xiaomi was largely rumoured to launch the Mi 6 Plus alongside the Mi 6, but that didn’t happen, and leaks of the Mi 6 Plus also reduced post the Mi 6 launch in April. Now, the Mi 6 Plus has again cropped up online bringing back hopes of a launch soon.

Gizchina found a back cover image of the Mi 6 Plus alongside the Mi 6 smartphone on the Chinese web, hinting that the launch might be around the corner. The Mi 6 Plus back cover is identical to the Mi 6 with respect to design, the only difference being size. The Mi 6 Plus size is bigger than the Mi 6, as expected.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus has been rumoured on multiple occasions and it is expected to feature a 5.7-inch full-HD display, and Snapdragon 835 SoC. The Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus is tipped to be offered in 4GB of RAM + 64GB storage, 6GB + 128GB, and 8GB + 256GB variants.

Earlier, a device code-named Xiaomi Jason was spotted on GFXBench benchmark, and it is believed to be a variant of the flagship Xiaomi Mi 6, called the Mi 6c. It is expected to be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 660 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz coupled with 6GB RAM and will pack 64GB on-board storage. The smartphone may feature a 5.1-inch full-HD display and run MIUI based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. On the camera front, the alleged Xiaomi Jason is said to sport a 12-megapixel rear camera alongside a 4-megapixel front camera. It’s worth pointing out that the alleged Xiaomi Jason could very well launch with a different name other than Mi 6c.

As for the Mi 6 India launch, the company’s India chief Manu Kumar Jain had said it may be announced in July, though details beyond that are still awaited.

HubSpot Files for IPO, Hopes to Raise $100 Million

HubSpot, the inbound marketing company founded by Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah in 2006, has filed its intentions for an Initial Public Offering.

The company says it hopes to raise $100 million from sales of public stock, according to its S-1 filing with the Security Exchange Commission. Hubspot says it plans to list shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol HUBS.

The money that HubSpot hopes to raise through the IPO will help expand the business.

HubSpot provides a marketing software platform to businesses typically with 10 or more employees that integrates applications like social media, search engine optimization, blogging, website content management, marketing automation, email, analytics and reporting.

The platform is available to businesses on a paid subscription basis. The idea behind HubSpot is to engage website visitors to turn them into customers and eventually promoters of a business, according to the company’s S-1 document.

As of June of this year, HubSpot estimated it had more than 11,500 subscribers to its services in more than 70 countries with an average earned revenue per customer of more than $8,000 annually. The company also has more than 700 employees.

Revenues have been consistently on the rise at HubSpot. The company has reported revenues of $51.3 million during the first six months of this year. That is a 46 percent increase over the same time last year. Total revenue at HubSpot increased from $28.6 million in 2011 to $51.6 million in 2012 and reached $77.6 million in 2013.

At the same time, HubSpot has continually reported annual losses: A net loss of $34.3 million last year and $17.7 million from January to June this year. And in its S-1 filing, the company warns that risks associated with investing include those consistently reported losses.

BetaBoston reports that the city’s local tech community has been anticipating the IPO from HubSpot. The announcement generated comments from others in the tech entrepreneurship ecosystem like this one on Twitter:

Stuart Broad Hopes Trevor Bayliss’ Knowledge Of Australia will Help During the Ashes

Stuart Broad generic

London: England fast bowler Stuart Broad believes he and his compatriots can tap into the vast bank of knowledge that coach Trevor Bayliss possesses on their rivals Australia during the Ashes series.

A 14-man England squad will jet off to Spain with their support staff – including Bayliss – on June 27 for a four-day camp, and Broad believes the Australian in their ranks will offer insights into players he has coached previously. (England to Train in Spain for Ashes)

As head coach of Australian domestic sides New South Wales Blues, Sydney Sixers and Indian Premier league (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Riders, the 52-year-old mentor has had a host of Australians under his supervision, including premier batsman Steven Smith.

“Obviously he is a very experienced coach. He’s worked a lot in Australia. He’s coached the likes of Steven Smith, who I think was his captain at the Sydney Sixers, so he’ll know the inside and outs of those players,” Broad was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au. (Is the English Cricket Team Scripting Its ODI Revival?)

Bayliss also took the reins of Australia’s T20 side on a stop-gap basis last October in a three-match series against South Africa, giving the coach further insight into the workings of the national set-up.

“He will know the big strengths of Australia, the big weaknesses of Australia and as players we should pick his brain about that.”

“I know that (new England director of cricket) Andrew Strauss is a very logical man, he does a lot of research about the decisions he makes and I’m sure he did a lot of research into the new coach,” Broad added.

The first Test will commence from July 8 at Cardiff.
