Honor 8X Max Specifications, Design, Colours, Features Tipped by Online Listing Ahead of Launch

Honor 8X Max will sport a vertically stacked dual camera setup.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Honor 8X Max is set to launch on September 5
  • The device will sport a waterdrop-shaped notch
  • It is listed to be priced at CNY 9,998

Huawei’s sub-brand Honor is all set to launch the Honor 8Xand the Honor 8X Max at a launch event in China on September 5. The Max variant is expected to be the more premium model, with a larger screen, and better specifications. Now, more information about the Honor 8X Max has been tipped thanks to its premature listing on JD.com, revealing its complete design, features, and specification details as well.

JD.com lists the Honor 8X Max with a dummy price tag CNY 9,998 (roughly Rs. 103,000). This is obviously just a dummy price tag, and the exact price will be unveiled at the event next week. The smartphone is seen sporting a waterdrop-shaped notch, and a slight chin at the bottom housing the Honor branding. At the back, there is a dual camera setup stacked vertically and a rear fingerprint scanner is seen as well. The smartphone is listed in a Magic Night Black colour option, but the product description page on JD.com has a slew of posters revealing that the Honor 8X Max will also be made available in Blue, and Red colour options. There are complete renders of the phone as well, seen from the front and back.

The posters reveal that the smartphone will sport a huge 7.12-inch display with the waterdrop notch. The screen-to-body ratio is listed to be at 90 percent, and it will support Dolby Atmos sound technology. The back is to sport a 3D design that will reflect differently from different angles. The Honor 8X Max will sport 18W quick charging that will enable 40 minutes of calls with a quick 10-minute charge. The listing was spotted by tipster @banggogo on Twitter.

Previous leaks indicate that both the Honor 8X and the Honor 8X Max will be powered by the Snapdragon 660 SoC. A TENAA listing suggests that the Honor 8X will run on Android 8.1 Oreo, sport a 7.12-inch full-HD+ (1080×2244 pixels) TFT panel with an 18.7:9 aspect ratio, pack 4GB of RAM, 64GB of inbuilt storage, and enclose a 4,900mAh battery under the hood.

The dual rear camera module will bear one 16-megapixel primary sensor and a secondary 2-megapixel depth sensor. On the front, the handset will get an 8-megapixel selfie camera. As for dimensions, the Honor 8X will measure 177.57×86.24×8.13mm and weigh 210 grams.

Xiaomi Mi A2, Mi A2 Lite Price, Specifications, Design Spotted Online Ahead of July 24 Launch

Xiaomi Mi A2, Mi A2 Lite Price, Specifications, Design Spotted Online Ahead of July 24 Launch

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Mi A2 Lite might be a rebranded version of Redmi 6 Pro
  • Both were spotted on a Polish online retailer’s website
  • Launch is expected in Spain in July 24

Xiaomi Mi A2 is expected to make an appearance at the company’s global event in Madrid, Spain on July 24. A recent development reveals that the Mi A2 Lite will also accompany the regular Mi A2 on its trip to the European country. Both upcoming mid-range Xiaomi smartphones have been spotted on a Polish retail website. The listings reveal certain specifications and design rengers of both the handsets. Let’s have a look at what we can expect at the July 24 launch event.

In a couple of listings on Polish online retailer X-Com’s portal, the Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite have been listed. While the images from these listings seem to have been taken down, Slashleaks has obtained the renders. The most interesting part of this leak is the design of the supposed Mi A2 Lite resembles that of the Redmi 6 Pro. Both smartphones appear to have the same-sized display notch, a 5.84-inch 19:9 display, and similar antenna placing on the back panel. Other specifications such as a 4,000mAh battery, Snapdragon 625 SoC, 4GB RAM, and 64GB inbuilt storage also match.

The Slashleaks post suggests that the Mi A2 Lite will sport a vertically stacked 12-megapixel + 5-megapixel camera combo on the back, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. The back panel, in the render, has Android One branding. It thus appears that the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite might just be a rebranded Android One variant of the Redmi 6 Pro.

As for the listings procured from Poland, both the 32GB variant of the Mi A2 and the 64GB variant of the Mi A2 Lite have been given the same price tag of PLN 999 which roughly translates to about Rs. 18,400.

Talking about the Mi A2, several details have been leaked in the past few weeks, including the claims that it might be an Android One-based rebranded version of the Mi 6X. It is expected to sport a 5.99-inch full-HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and no display notch. It will most likely be fuelled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB/ 64GB/ 128GB of internal storage.

  • Indian developer from Chennai made it to the list
  • All winners receive a prize package filled with Apple products

Apple is currently hosting its annual developer conference, WWDC 2018, in San Jose, California from June 4-8. After announcing major updates to its iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS platforms at the inaugural keynote on Monday, the Cupertino giant also revealed the names of the winners of the 2018 Apple Design awards that include just one developer from the US with the rest coming from other countries. WapleStuff, a developer studio from Chennai, India, is also part of the list with its Calzy app available on Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.

This year’s edition of Apple Design Awards has been unveiled, with the event video to be uploaded soon on the company’s official website. Among the winners of the awards is the Chennai-based WapleStuff that developed a modern calculator app called Calzy 3. It offers a unique theme and its USP is a “Memory Area” where you can store multiple numerical values and reuse it across multiple calculating sessions with a simple drag and drop interaction.

Apart from that, the list is filled with developers from European countries. These include the likes of Agenda that offers a date-focused approach to note taking, Bandimal which is a kid-focused app that helps create music and simple tunes effortlessly, iTranslate Converse that is essentially a speech translation app offering a natural conversation experience, Playdead’s INSIDE an adventure-based game, Frost is an app that lets you draw paths to guide the flocking spirits to their home planets, and Oddmar is a drama game with a strong plot line.

The only app from the US to make it to the list is Triton Sponge from the developers over at Gauss Surgical. Available only on iPad, the app helps users estimate real-time surgical blood loss. Florence, from the designer behind Monument Valley, is an interactive storybook exploring an intriguing love story. Finally, Alto’s Odyssey from Canada is another popular adventure game that made it to the list.

According to 9To5Mac, winners of the 2018 Apple Design Awards will receive a “one-of-a-kind aluminium cube” and a prize package that consists of a 5K iMac Pro, a 15-inch MacBook Pro, a 256GB iPhone X, a 512GB iPad Pro with Apple Pencil, a 4K Apple TV, an Apple Watch Series 3, and a pair of AirPods.

Students turn creative to raise funds for design project

Hold painting exhibition under TTK Road bridge

The aspiration of a group of architecture students to compete in a contest has turned the space below the bridge on TTK Road colourful.

When 20-year-old Shruti Mohan and 20 other students of Mohamed Sathak AJ Academy of Architecture wanted to participate in the annual NASA Design Competition conducted by the National Association of Students of Architecture, which requires them to effectively utilise public space, they struggled to mobilise the necessary money.

Quickly, they put together some pocket money and decided to put on a painting exhibition on Sunday under the bridge itself.

“This painting exhibition is like a fund-raiser for implementing the project of creating a vertical garden on the pillars of the bridge. We have used insulation and used tyres, made them colourful and turned them into seats. Then, we approached some artists, who promised to give us about 50% of the sale money from their paintings to us,” she said.

They have about 100 paintings of many noted artists with the price ranging from ₹1,000 to ₹3 lakh. This project, they say, will cost them ₹6 lakh.

Dhanya M, another student, said, “We have been able to raise about ₹10,000 so far. We are hopeful of getting funds somehow.”
