Xiaomi shows 100W Fast Charging technology, 4000mAh battery charged in just 17 minutes

Gone are the days when Chinese companies blatantly copied western giants. In the past several years, companies coming out of China like Huawei and Xiaomi has pioneered a ton of modern-day innovations that go under your cameraphone. And it appears such as the trend will continue for a foreseeable future. Xiaomi has just revealed that it has successfully tested 100W fast charging for handsets. Lin Bin, President and co-founder of Xiaomi revealed this news via a Weibo post a handful of hrs ago. In the article, he revealed that the company’s engineers were able to reach an astonishing 100W fast charging, which essentially charges a 4000mAh battery from 0 to 100 percent in just 17 minutes! That’s nearly twice as fast as the SuperVOOC from OPPO, which is presently the quickest charging tech out there in the market for a smartphone. The company was even kind sufficient to show us that OPPO’s SuperVOOC could only charge up to 65 percent by the time the Xiaomi model on display was charged completely. By the way, Xiaomi’s 100W charging tech is being called as Super Charge Turbo, at least as claimed by to the video. Sadly apart from this demo, Xiaomi’s Lin Bin didn’t share any extra details about the technology. So, the massive question presently is, whether we’ll see it anytime in the near future. We yet haven’t met the real successor to the Mi Mix 3 yet (apart from a 5G edition), so it’s probable that the Mi Mix 4 could house this tech under. Interestingly, the manufacturer seems to have teased the update to the Mix 3 model noted today. So, it couldn’t have been a coincidence that Lin Bin determined to share this Presently. Anyway, let’s wait for additional details before we obtain too excited. Stay tuned for a lot more updates. (Source)



Apple replacing some iPhone X units plagued with Face ID issues

Late last week, it came to light that Apple has asked its Authorized Service Providers to repair iPhone 7 series phones with disabled microphones (caused by iOS 11.3 or later updates). And now, according to another leaked document sent out by Apple to its Authorized Service Providers, the company has detailed the process the service staff should follow when dealing with iPhone X units plagued by Face ID issues. Apparently (and somewhat counterintuitively), the Face ID problem has something to do with the rear camera on the phone, as the document says the first step should be to run...



Galaxy Note FE’s July 7 launch date confirmed by Korean carrier

The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note7 turned Galaxy Note FE is indeed set for a July 7 launch, just like previously reported. The confirmation came from a post by Korean carrier LG Uplus (part of LG Corporation) on Facebook, which has since been taken down. We did manage to save the picture, which, aside from the July 7 date, states there are limited quantities of the device. The post also detailed that the Note FE will be on pre-order starting today through July 6, though we admit that our Korean is a little rusty and we relied on Google Translate for that. Posters have started...



LG V20 again drops to $350 in US

Earlier this month, we brought you a LG V20 deal that allowed you to grab a unit for $350. In case you missed that promo for some reason, you'll be glad to know that the price has again dropped to the same level. The only difference is that instead of Newegg, it's retailer B&H that's offering the deal this time. The model on offer is unlocked, Titan Grey one. Among other third-party retailers, Newegg has the same variant listed for $450, while Amazon is offering it for $400. So you get to save at-least $50. Officially, LG still has the phone listed for $800. No word on when the...



MediaTek has a new low-cost face unlocking that’s just as secure as Apple’s Face ID

Everyone knows that Apple's Face ID technology used in the iPhone X is one of the most secure solutions out there. It uses the so-called 3D Structured-Light technology, but only a few Android smartphones have that due to the cost of production. That's why only the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer and Oppo's Find X boast Structured-LIght 3D sensors for their facial recognition. So MediaTek wants to change all that. The facial recognition feature became pretty popular even on budget-friendly handsets. And despite not having all the sensors needed for a proper facial identification they still use...
