    Recently it was reported that Apple has cut the additional production of the iPhone XR owing to the poor reception. Now according to report from WSJ, the company has cut production orders for all three iPhone models launched in September in recent weeks. According to the Wall Street Journal source, the company has witnessed a lower-than-expected demand for the new iPhones and Apple's move to offer more iPhone models made it difficult for the company to anticipate the number of components and handsets the company needs. Apple with a lower-than-expected sales forecast for the Christmas quarter has surprised investors and this prompted certain suppliers to issue warnings pointing at week sales of the new iPhones. Apple did not respond to a request for comment. At the moment, it isn't clear on how many orders were cut down. Source | Via

  • 11/19/18--04:42: Noise ColorFit Pro Review
  • Noise launched the ColorFit Pro fitness band in the Indian market with a slew of features including a pedometer, Heart Rate, Blood Pressure, SpO2 Level, and Sleep Quality recently. We got hold of this device for more than a week and came with our review. Design Unlike other fitness bands, the Colorfit Pro has an Apple Watch feel to it with a big square shaped dial. On either side of the display module, it is attached with sporty black and blue (our review unit) strap made of silicone, which is comfortable to wear even though hands are sweaty. Having said that, the strap comes with enough adjustment options to fit even the smallest of wrists. The Colorfit Pro is pretty light and the strap can be detached on both the ends. Talking about the placement, the Colorfit pro has a sensor at the back along with two pogo pins for charging just below it. To charge this device, we need to place the band on the cradle perfectly so that two pins touch the other two on the cradle. While there is no separate button, we have been provided with a circular touch-enabled space in the display module which helps us to see ...

    WhatsApp Status currently has over 450 million daily active users, while Snapchat has a little 188 million. This is despite the lack of features like AR selfie masks, animated GIFs, or personalized avatars like Bitmoji. Snapchat lost total daily users in Q2 and Q3 2018 and even in Q2. However, Snapchat impressed the teens with disappearing chats where they can be free to be themselves. On the other hand, WhatsApp offers a permanent route where it only lets you send permanent photos, videos, and texts. There is an Unsend option, but it only works for an hour after a message is sent. However, Instagram, let's you send both permanent and temporary photos and videos. Text messages are permanent by default, but you can unsend even old ones. WhatsApp could build such a feature quite easily by adding a simple timer when people send media so photos or videos that can disappear after 10 seconds, a minute, an hour, or a day. However, there's a possibility that WhatsApp might bring such a feature in the near future where it embraces the ephemeral messaging. The company might make texts easier to keep permanent or at least lengthening how long they last before they disappear. For now, ...

    As we are inching closer to the Galaxy S10 launch, we are hearing more and more details about the flagships. Two latest reports suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S10 Will Feature next gen M9 Display Panels With Diode Pumped Solid State (DPSS) Laser Drilled Holes For The Front Camera And Infrared Sensor.  Given the strength of the Samsung display, the company should be very comfortable with display panels. Samsung introduced three new ‘notched’ screens at its developer conference earlier this month. One of them is an Infinity-O display, which, as the name suggests, features a circular cutout for the front camera, instead of a notch. Furthermore, now we heard that the panel will feature two holes, one for the front camera and the other for the Galaxy S10’s infrared sensor. Both these holes will be drilled with a Diode Pumped Solid State Laser drill. Samsung will use SFA, Phil Optics and Wonik IPS’ laser equipment to carry out this drilling. However, the company is not comfortable with DPSS and might adopt an alternative approach. Reports suggest that Samsung’s OLED panels for the Galaxy S10 will mark a generational upgrade over their predecessors. Samsung will use what are being termed as ‘M9’ OLED panels for ...

    Lenovo-owned Motorola is said to be working on a new smartphone codenamed 'Odin' which will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 chipset and 5G Moto Mod support. Though this won't be the final name for the device; we are inclined to believe it would be Moto Z4.  According to latest report, the upcoming Motorola flagship is based on the upcoming Snapdragon 8150 platform with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage. However, the phone is still in early development so there could be higher RAM and storage models. It runs on Android 9 Pie and will also have Moto Mod support. Motorola has previously committed to “three generations” of support on the Moto Z lineup, and this device will be a fourth-generation model, so we can expect design changes. The Motorola “Odin” will support Motorola’s upcoming 5G Moto Mod, thanks to the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X50 modem, which Verizon has used to complete its first 5G data transmission using the Moto Z3 and the unreleased 5G Moto Mod. Lastly, Motorola is also said to be working on a software that can handle an in-display fingerprint scanner but isn't confirmed whether the Moto Odin would sport the sensor. The Qualcomm 8150 chipset is rumored to feature a dedicated NPU and manufactured on a 7nm process. That's all ...

    One of the handiest features Google introduced with Pixel 3 was Call Screen, meaning it will screen unknown calls so you know who’s calling and why before picking up. It will display a new "Screen call" button when you get an incoming call. Just hit the button and it will start screening the call.  The system will ask why they're calling and you'll see a transcript of their response in real-time. Then you can decide whether to pick up, mark the call as spam, or tap to respond with one of the quick replies. Google says that this ability to screen calls is designed to help you quickly determine whether the call is important. The feature is powered by AI and runs in real-time on your device. The company says that the experience is fast, responsive, and private to you. It keeps power consumption to a minimum and even works without a data connection. Call Screen is initially available in English to Pixel 3 users in the US and will launch to Pixel 1 and 2 users later this year.  These transcripts will be saved automatically to the dialer app once the call has ended and will be available for later viewing.
