July 20 will also mark Xiaomi’s three-year anniversary in India, and it announced a two-day sale during the Mi Max 2 launch. The hard to buy Redmi 4 and Redmi Note 4 will be in stock during the anniversary sale, alongside new power banks and discounts on accessories. Xiaomi is also bringing back the Re. 1 flash sale, which will be offered on Redmi 4A, Wi-Fi Repeater 2, and the 10000mAh Mi Power Bank 2.

At the Mi Max 2 launch event, Xiaomi also talked about expanding the number of Mi Home stores across India, with two new outlets opening in Bengaluru later this month. First on Saturday, July 22, one will open in LIDO Mall, and the second in Orion Mall on the following Saturday, July 29.

Meanwhile in China, Xiaomi will launch the Mi 5X – a variant of the Mi 5 – on July 26, as per a teaser posted on its Weibo account. The phone is expected to have MIUI 9 running atop Android Nougat. In terms of hardware, per leaks, you can expect the Xiaomi Mi 5X to sport a 5.5-inch full-HD display, Snapdragon 625 SoC, and 4GB RAM. It’s expected to cost around CNY 1,999 (about Rs. 19,000).

Nokia 8 shows up in all its glory
The Nokia 8 has shown up in leaked press renders, which gives us the first good look at the premium device ahead of its launch on July 31. Expected to cost EUR 589 (about Rs. 43,400), the Nokia 8 is seen to have a vertical dual rear camera setup courtesy of HMD Global’s partnership with Carl Zeiss for optics. Beyond that, the phone is tipped to have a 5.3-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 835, 4/6GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage. Check out the leaked images of the Nokia 8.

Reliance Jio claims it’s the biggest mobile data network in the world
Reliance Jio is now the largest mobile data network in the world, carrying 15 percent of world traffic, the company’s President Devices Sunil Dutt claimed at Xiaomi’s event in New Delhi on Tuesday. Dutt added that Jio is the only exabyte network in the world, and it commands 85 percent of India’s mobile data consumption needs. He also brought up the previously mentioned statistic of data consumed per month, which has apparently gone up from 0.2 billion gigabytes to 1.2 billion gigabytes, with Jio contributing heavily to the rise.

Amazon and Flipkart host laptop sales
With college semesters in full swing, Amazon India and Flipkart are both hosting Back to College sales, providing deals, exchange offers, and No Cost EMI options on a variety of laptops. Amazon has seen fit to categorise laptops by student majors, such as Humanities, Engineering, MBA, and so forth. The cheapest option is Lenovo’s 15.6-inch Ideapad at Rs. 18,990. You can get Rs. 10,000 off on exchanging an old laptop, and two-year warranty for Rs. 1,499.

iPhone 8 power button might house Touch ID, coming in November?
Apple might put Touch ID on the power button with iPhone 8, according to a new report. Owing to that implementation, which was revealed from a design file provided to a case-maker, the power button will apparently be slightly larger on the tenth-anniversary iPhone. The renders also add fuel to the vertical dual rear camera setup fire, along with the removal of the Home button from the front.

A second report reiterates the delay in the phone’s release, owing to the protracted development schedule. Apparently the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, featuring minor upgrades to last year’s phones, will ship as usual, the iPhone 8 – which is expected to be more expensive – won’t be available until November.

Google Allo brings message reactions to its platform
A new update for Google Allo has added support for message reactions, with a heart emoji being your only option for now. That means the next time you wish to agree with someone, or send your love, you won’t have to head into the keyboard’s emoji drawer. There’s no word on when the new feature will be available to iOS users.

Huawei takes on Fitbit with Band 2 and Band 2 Pro
Huawei unveiled two new fitness trackers on Tuesday – the Band 2 and Band 2 Pro – which look a lot like the Fitbit Charge 2, right down to the dual-tone finish of the metallic centre. But unlike their Fitbit counterpart, the Huawei wearables are waterproof, and the Band 2 Pro has built-in GPS. Two additional features include Firstbeat – which helps assess VO2 max – and Breathing Coach, which is like Fitbit’s Relax and Apple Watch’s Breathe. Compatible with Android 4.4 or later, and iOS 8.0 or above, the Huawei Band 2 and Band 2 Pro will be available in Blue, Black, and Red band colours, though they have no release date or pricing info yet.

Flipkart reportedly ups Snapdeal acquisition offer by $100-150 million
After Snapdeal rejected Flipkart’s $800-850 million initial bid earlier in July, the latter is back with an upgraded buyout offer between $900-950 million, people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The revised offer includes Snapdeal’s marketplace and solutions provider Unicommerce, but excludes logistics arm Vulcan Express, and digital payments firm Freecharge. Infibeam has apparently made a proposal for acquiring Snapdeal as well, and the company is expected to reach a decision in the next 10 days.

Remix OS is no more, as Jide switches lanes
The Android-based Remix OS has been discontinued after its maker Jide decided to switch priorities from consumer to enterprise markets. In a post on its website, the company said that it sees “huge potential” with businesses, and it has decided to focus solely on that going forward. This also affects the all-in-one entertainment device Remix IO, which went up on Kickstarter last year. Jide said that it’d start refunding pre-orders from August 15.

The Logitech Slim Combo is claimed to be a versatile case that will enable four use modes for the iPad Pro models – typing, viewing, FaceTime, and reading. This will be handy when you are on a go and want to send an email, draw a graph using Apple Pencil, and video call using FaceTime.

“In the past, you were bound to a workspace with a PC, and used your tablet for quick messages or entertainment when you weren’t in the office; that’s not the case anymore,” said Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech, in the company’s release. He added, “To be a pro today, you need the power of the PC, but more easily available whether you’re on a train, at the park, in a meeting or wherever you need to be. The Slim Combo unleashes the power of iPad Pro to bring you the future of personal computing; a future that’s easier, faster and more fun.”
