Maruti Suzuki India is currently testing 50 prototype electric vehicles across India

Maruti Suzuki India is currently testing its electric cars in India, and that is in no way a secret. In fact, the company openly announced and flagged-off its electric vehicle fleet for on-road testing in India this October, and we have now come across spy photos of one of these test mules. The car, of course, is in no way camouflaged, in fact, on the contrary, it comes with ‘Electric Vehicle’ printed all around it with graphics and decals to go with the theme. Maruti’s electric vehicle that is on the test is based on the new-gen Wagon R, which was unveiled early this year, and the launch of the production model is slated for some time in 2020.

While the latest leak does not show any images of the upcoming Pocophone F1, they do hint at some of the specifications of the handset.

A listing of an alleged Xiaomi Pocophone F1 has surfaced on a Belarusian online store that showcases the smartphone’s specifications. According to the listing on the site, the dual-SIM Xiaomi Pocophone F1 sports a 6.18-inch full-HD+ display with 18.7:9 aspect ratio. It reaffirms the presence of Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC in the handset. It comes with 6GB of RAM.

In terms of optics, the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 listing suggests that the smartphone features a dual-camera setup at the back with 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors with f/1.75 aperture, LED flash, dual autofocus, Dual Pixel, and AI features. At the front, there is a 20-megapixel selfie camera with Super Pixel technology and Face Unlock. The smartphone comes in two inbuilt storage variants – 64GB and 128GB – expandable via microSD card.

While the 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant will be priced in Eastern Europe for EUR 420 (roughly Rs. 33,800), the 6GB RAM / 128GB storage model will cost EUR 460 (roughly Rs. 37,000).

Huawei Nova 3i Price, Specifications, Launch Date Spotted in Leaks

Huawei Nova 3i Price, Specifications, Launch Date Spotted in Leaks

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Nova 3i could be a new variant of the Nova 3
  • It is said to be powered by Kirin 710 processor
  • It is expected to be priced between CNY 1,999 and CNY 2,199

Huawei Nova 3i, is expected to launch soon as another variant of the Nova 3. Earlier this week, the Chinese manufacturer launched the Nova 3 in China as the latest model in the Nova-series. But now, the company is said to be also planning to release a Nova 3i model with slightly different specifications. Interestingly, a new leak suggests that the processor in the Nova 3i will be an all-new Kirin 710 SoC, instead of the Kirin 970 SoC present in the Nova 3. Also, another report has separately claimed that the Nova 3i will launch in the Philippines later this month.

Images leaked by a tipster on Chinese microblogging site Weibo, showcase a comparison of the specifications of the Nova 3 and Nova 3i. Both the smartphones appear to have a similar design – display notch, dual camera setup on both sides, and the fingerprint scanner positioned at the back. As mentioned, the difference lies in the processor, as the Nova 3i will be powered by the Kirin 710 SoC, possibly a mid-tier processor in the HiSilicon portfolio.

According to the leak, the Huawei Nova 3i will stick to the same selfie camera setup with a 24-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. However, the rear camera setup will include 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors. For comparison, the Nova 3 comes with a 16-megapixel and 24-megapixel combo. Additionally, the Nova 3i battery is also expected to be a bit smaller – 3340 mAh with regular 5V/2A charging, instead of 3750mAh in Nova 3.

The leak also suggests that the Huawei Nova 3i will arrive in two variants – 4GB RAM and 128GB storage and 6GB RAM and 64GB storage, which is an odd configuration. In terms of pricing, the tipster has also claimed that the Nova 3i could be priced between CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 20,600) and CNY 2,199 (roughly Rs. 22,600).

Meanwhile, as per a report in Yugatech, a post in an unofficial Facebook community group for Huawei and Honor PH shows an image that suggests the Huawei Nova 3i will launch in the Philippines on July 28. An advertisement for the new smartphone was spotted in Glorietta Mall in the capital of Manila, as ‘Coming Soon’ with the date of July 28 stamped on the teaser.

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.
