The Xiaomi Mi A1 Special Edition features a vivid red color

Back in September, we told you all about the Xiaomi Mi A1. As an Android One handset (that’s what A1 stands for) this device features stock Android and will be among the first Android phones to receive updates from Google. In fact, before the ball drops in Times Square in a little over two weeks, the phone is supposed to receive Android Oreo. But that’s not the big news today.

A Special Edition of the Xiaomi Mi A1 has been introduced by the manufacturer. What makes it so special? Glad you asked. This variant of the phone is wearing a vivid red color. Outside of the new color, nothing about …


Alluring red Sony Xperia XZ Premium now available in the US


Launched in Japan last month, the red version of Sony’s
Xperia XZ Premium can now be bought in the US, where Amazon is selling it
unlocked alongside the phone’s other three color variants (black, chrome, and
pink – all available since June).

 

It doesn’t look like the red (or rosso) Xperia XZ Premium that’s sold
in the US
comes with Android 8 Oreo out of the box, instead running Android 7 Nougat. In
any case, the handset should receive an Oreo update pretty soon.

 

Alluring color aside, Sony’s new red smartphone doesn’t
differ from the other color variants of the Xperia XZ Premium. …

Stunning in Red: "Rosso" Sony Xperia XZ Premium might soon be available near you

A red XZ Premium was actually first spotted back in May when it appeared on Chinese website Weibo. Sony gave no indication that such a version was coming at the time, and made things official less than seven days ago.
Last week, Docomo, Japan’s largest carrier, confirmed that it will start selling the Rosso XZ Premium on October 27th, leading some to believe …

LG touts its seasonal V30 flagship as a videographer’s dream and powerhouse, even including 4K footage editing options that have been outside the realm of Android handsets so far, under the banner of Cine Video, which is the broader suite of functions offered for video recording on the V30.

Red Hot Zello PTT Walkie Talkie app helped save lives during Hurricane Harvey

Zello PTT Walkie Talkie is one of the “hottest” apps in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.  The free app turns your iOS or Android device into a Walkie-Talkie with push-to-talk capabilities. With the app installed, users can have a conversation one-on-one with a friend or family member, or join a group conversation. One reason for the app’s popularity is a rumor that installing it will turn your phone into a two-way radio without requiring internet connectivity. Unfortunately, that is not true. You do need to be connected to a carrier’s network, or to Wi-Fi in order for …

RED reveals what the Hydrogen's "holographic display" is all about

RED Digital Cinema, possibly the most well-known cinema camera maker, made a weird announcement two months ago: apparently, it had been working on its own take on the smartphone, called the RED Hydrogen, complete with a modular design and a so-called “holographic display.” And even though the closest thing we had to a look at the device at that point was a render of its back, the company started taking pre-orders immediately after its announcement.

So you would be excused for thinking this brand-new screen tech is just a dumb marketing gimmick — or even an …

Boston Red Sox accused of stealing opponent's signs using the Apple Watch


Back in 1951, the New York Giants made up a 13.5 game deficit in a matter of weeks to win the National League pennant (back then there were no playoffs or wild card games). But some accused the Giants of cheating. According to one rumor, the team hid a coach inside the manager’s office in the clubhouse that in the Polo Grounds was located beyond centerfield. Using a telescope, the coach could see what pitch the opposing catcher was calling for, and an elaborate buzzer system was used to get the info to the Giant’s bullpen, and from the bullpen to the hitter.

It appears that decades later, …

HTC reports another three months of red ink for the second quarter of 2017

For nine consecutive three-month quarters, HTC has announced a loss. It makes you wonder how the company can afford to keep spending for the red-ink cartridges that they are using to print these reports. The just announced net loss for the second quarter of 2017 amounted to $64.23 million USD, a slight 3.9% improvement from the $66.87 million USD loss that HTC reported for the previous quarter. This works out to a loss of 7.8 U.S. cents a share for Q2 versus a loss of 8 U.S. cents a share for this year’s first quarter. Gross margins declined to 13.7% from 16.3% during the same time period.
