Infinix Mobility – The brand everyone is buzzing about

Infinix Mobility – The brand everyone is buzzing about

Infinix has been a common name among smartphone enthusiasts these days and the brand’s popularity has been flourishing in leaps and bounds. Considering the fact that the company just recently celebrated its one year anniversary here in Pakistan, it has already become a fan favorite. We’ve seen some amazing devices released by the OEM in the past year including the ever popular Hot Note to the company’s flagship device of 2016, the Zero 3. All these devices have been nothing less than exemplary and credit should be given to the entire team behind the success of the brand. One of the core values of Infinix revolves around the company’s continuous interaction with its fans and for them; the voice of their customers is the most important thing. Infinix Mobility held a grand event yesterday at a local hotel in Karachi, where they announced the Infinix Hot S, their very first full metal body device along with a very fast and highly responsive finger print sensor. Infinix’s CEO and Co-Founder, Mr. Andy Yan announced the extremely budget friendly device that not just boasts some really impressive specs, it looks quite sleek and elegant as well. With the Hot S, the company has tried to focus exactly on what the fans had been asking for since quite some time to deliver a device comprising a perfect blend between beauty and core functionality. The event which was streamed live on the company’s Facebook page was hosted by famous Pakistani TV celebrity, Anoushey Ashraf and was followed by a Q&A session after the launch where participants were asked various questions about the brand and the phone’s features. Lucky winners were rewarded with the sleek new Infinix noise cancelling earphones that were also launched at the event. We would be doing a full review on both the devices in the weeks to come but for now, you can head over to our Facebook page for more event coverage. The phone is priced at Rs. 16,899/- and is now available at Yayvo.com and Daraz.pk across Pakistan with one year local warranty. So what do you guys think about the new Infinix Hot S? We would like to hear your thoughts in the comments below....

Infinix Mobility launches the Infinix Hot S with Finger Print Scanner, Full Metal Body and XOS

Infinix Mobility launches the Infinix Hot S with Finger Print Scanner, Full Metal Body and XOS

Infinix Mobility launched the Infinix Hot S in Pakistan today and with it came a lot of firsts for the mobile manufacturer. The Hot S is Infinix’s first device with a full metal body, the first device to come with a finger print scanner and the very first device to run on their all new XOS software based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Infinix’s CEO and Co – Founder Mr. Andy Yan took to the stage, to take off the curtains on their new device. The Infinix Hot S comes with a 5.2 inch 720p IPS Display on a Full Metal body with a streamline finish. Cortex 1.3 GHz Octa (8) Core processor with 64 bit architecture and a MALI-T720 GPU. On the memory front, the device comes in two models 2GB RAM / 16GB internal memory and a 3GB RAM / 16GB variant. The 3GB RAM edition will be launched at a later undisclosed date. Now lets talk about the camera, the Hot S comes with a 13MP rear camera with Dual LED flash and an 8MP front facing camera with Ultra Pixel technology, front flash light and a 120 degree wide angle selfie shot. It also has a new video recording and editing software called Movie Magic, which is really helpful for those who like to tweak and filter their videos. The finger print sensor on the back adds an extra layer of protection to the device, and from the brief time I spent with the device, I can say the scanner showed around 99% accuracy, which is quite impressive for their first time. The scanner is also placed very well, so it makes unlocking the device very fluid and easy. On the software side of things, the Hot S comes with Infinix’s brand new OS theme, called XOS Chameleon 2.0 running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It is a much improved version of its predecessor XUI, and it really did feel a whole lot snappier too. The new XOS has a lot of changes, some of which include apps such as XHide (Hide Apps for security), Interactive dial and Freezer. Now, the freezer option in particular caught my eye. What it basically does is, keeps unused apps from using the memory in the background. This is very helpful for longer battery life and overall RAM consumption. Talking about the battery the HOT S comes with a 3000 mAh battery which should ideally last you a day. Though we can only confirm once we get our own review device. Other features include, dual sim support with 4G and a MicroSD card slot which can support up to 128GB. The Hot S comes in 5...

Transform Pictures into Pieces of Art with Prisma

Transform Pictures into Pieces of Art with Prisma

If the Pokémon Go craze wasn’t enough to make most heads spin, there is another app which has been creating waves since the last few days. Prisma, which has been around for quite some time now on iOS devices, has finally made its way onto Android. For those of you who are not familiar with the app, Prisma transforms your photos into artworks using the styles of famous artists: Munk, Picasso as well as world famous ornaments and patterns. A unique combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence helps you turn memorable moments into timeless art. Rather than applying a filter which changes the color, saturation, exposure and contrast of a photo, Prisma uses proprietary algorithms to analyze your photos and gives you the option to apply nearly 40 different art styles.  My personal favorite is the material design style that blends perfectly on devices that are running on Android Lollipop and above. For those of you who want to bring out your inner artiste should definitely give this app a try. Prisma is available for free on the Google Play Store and has already received more than 71k reviews in the first two days since its launch. So what do you guys think about this new app? Do share your experiences with us in the comments below. Cheers! Download from the Google Play Store here....

Could these be the new HTC Nexus Phones ? [Rumor]

Could these be the new HTC Nexus Phones ? [Rumor]

The world is anxiously waiting for the arrival of Google’s upcoming Nexus devices which are expected to be officially announced in the next few months. There were rumors floating around since quite some time that HTC would be manufacturing this year’s devices code-named Nexus Marlin and Nexus SailFish and from what it seems now, those rumors are definitely taking shape. Techconfigurations has created a 3D render (based on leaked images) of both the devices. While the leaked images that we’ve seen so far have shown off the front and back of the two phones, it’s speculated that both devices will feature the same basic design elements. The 3D render does take some creative liberties since there are not images which show off the edges of the phones. These are just early renditions of both the devices and we’re not exactly sure as to how the actual devices would turn out but the video does give us a fair idea of what to expect. So what do you guys think about the two upcoming Nexus devices? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below....
