Vivo V7+ India Launch Set for Today, How to Watch Live Stream

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Vivo V7+ price in India is not known
  • The Vivo V7+ launch will be live streamed
  • The launch event begins at 12:45pm IST

Vivo V7+, a new selfie-focused smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer, is launching in India on Thursday. The company will be live streaming the launch event, which begins at 12:45pm IST. The live stream can be seen on several platforms, including the company’s YouTubeFacebook, and Twitterpages, as well as on Flipkart and Amazon India. We’ll embed the video below as soon as we get the link.

There’s not much that’s known about the Vivo V7+ for now. We know it’s a selfie-focused smartphone. We also know that the display bezels on the sides are small. With the launch live streaming on both Flipkart and Amazon, we can also gather that the smartphone probably won’t be exclusive to either. Stay tuned to details from the launch event.

Vivo India recently also launched the selfie-focused Vivo V5s smartphone in the country, and priced it at Rs. 18,990. The big highlight of the Vivo V5s is the front camera – it bears a 20-megapixel front camera with a ‘Moonlight Glow’ front light and an f/2.0 aperture, apart from the Face Beauty 6.0 app. On the rear, the smartphone features a 13-megapixel camera with PDAF and dual-LED flash.

The dual-SIM (Micro+Nano) Vivo V5s runs Funtouch OS 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It features a fingerprint sensor on its home button. It bears a 5.5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display with 2.5D Curved Glass, Gorilla Glass protection, and a pixel density of 267ppi. It is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM.

On the storage front, the Vivo V5s offers 64GB of inbuilt storage that’s expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB) in a hybrid dual-SIM format. The Vivo V5s runs on 3000mAh non-removable battery, weighs 154 grams, and measures 153.8×75.5×7.55mm.

Twitch IRL Launched, Takes on YouTube and Facebook With New Way to ‘Life Stream’

Twitch IRL Launched, Takes on YouTube and Facebook With New Way to 'Life Stream'

On Amazon’s streaming game platform Twitch, the world of gaming is being intermingled with real life.

A feature unveiled Thursday by Amazon called IRL – the acronym for “in real life” – lets people broadcast moments from their lives as part of game play.

Amazon called this feature “a new content category designed to both enable and encourage Twitch’s creators to step outside of their traditional gameplay content, and share content captured from their everyday lives.”

The new feature ramps up the capabilities of Twitch, a recent Amazon acquisition known for so-called social gaming and e-sports, or competitive video game play.

Twitch chief executive Emmett Shear said the introduction comes because users “are interested in sharing their everyday lives, thoughts, and opinions with their communities.”

Meanwhile, Amazon Game Studios launched an alpha version of “Breakaway,” its first new title in the hot e-sport arena of video game play as spectator sport.

The game envisioned as heroic characters from myth and legend teaming up to compete in a sort of “game of the gods” inspired by ancient Olympics and Aztec ball courts, studio head Patrick Gilmore said after providing AFP an early look at the game.Two teams of four players face off online, each represented by a champion ranging from a gunslinger, mage or a knight to a “nuker” named Victor.

Being able to build traps or defenses, and having time between rounds for players to huddle, enhanced the strategic element of the otherwise fast-paced game, a hands-on demonstration showed.

“We look at it as way more of a sport than anything out there,” Gilmore said, referring to the competitive array of e-sports that draw viewers with play streamed in real time.

Breakaway was available for play free through the weekend here.

US online retail giant Amazon snatched up Twitch and its huge audience for live-streamed gaming in 2014.

The purchase was one of the largest in Amazon’s history – $970 million (roughly Rs. 6,576 crores) in cash for the three-year-old Internet company.

Twitch claims the crown as the world’s leading social video platform for gamers, with more than 100 million people using the service to watch and discuss play being streamed live or on-demand.

Twitch.tv lets anyone broadcast game related content and allows them to connect with publishers or advertisers.

HP Stream 14 Budget Windows 10 Laptop Launched

HP Stream 14 Budget Windows 10 Laptop Launched

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The HP Stream 14 replaces the HP Stream 13 laptop
  • It comes with improved battery life and specifications
  • It has been priced at $219 (roughly Rs. 14,600)

HP has hit a sweet spot with its budget Stream laptops. Introduced two years ago, the Stream series was built for cloud computing and its laptops packaged with basic specifications, a large battery, and sleek design, all at a pretty affordable price tag between $199 to $250. After Stream 11 and 13, HP has now introduced Stream 14, which as the name suggests, is a 14-inch laptop starting at $219 (roughly Rs. 14,600) and is expected to go on sale from September 7.

The Stream 14 replaces the Stream 13 and bumps up some under-the-hood specifications as well as a refreshing the design. The Stream 14 comes with a fast dual-antenna 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a new Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB flash storage, 100GB OneDrive Cloud storage and 1366×768 resolution, which doesn’t sound so exciting on paper but is still worth buying at its meagre asking price.

While the original Stream laptops shipped with Windows 8.1, the Stream 14 will come with Windows 10. The new HP laptop will be available in Blue, Purple, or White colour options in certain regions.

A welcome improvement is the battery life which now stands at 10 hours and 45 minutes, which is great for a primarily online-only laptop. Other Stream laptops also receive an upgrade. The new Stream 11 launches on August 24 with faster Wi-Fi, upgraded processor, and slimmer body compared to its predecessor, and will be priced at $199 (roughly Rs. 13,300).

The 11.6-inch Stream x360 laptop/ tablet hybrid will receive similar hardware upgrades with a price starting at $249 (roughly Rs. 16,600) and expected to come out in September. There is also an educational model called the Stream 11 Pro that features improved security and an optional 64GB storage.
