Vivo Looks Set to Launch First Smartphone With In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor at MWC Shanghai

Last week, a short leaked video clip showed a Vivo smartphone with an on-screen fingerprint sensor and while the authenticity of that video was still under scrutiny, the company has now launched an official teaser that hints at the feature. As per the launch teaser, the company might be launching its upcoming smartphone with in-screen fingerprint sensor at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Shanghai, scheduled to start on June 28.

The launch teaser, shared by Vivo India on Wednesday, shows that fingerprint sensor logo going in and out of a plane, seemingly indicating that the sensor will be embedded in the display. Moreover, the company has mentioned a tagline that says “Unlock the Future” on the teaser image. While it is possible that the company could be indicating some other security feature related to the fingerprint sensor, our best guess for now would be a display-integrated fingerprint sensor.

Vivo Looks Set to Launch First Smartphone With In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor at MWC Shanghai

In its tweet, Vivo India said, “We are thrilled to be launching a new solution in just a few days at Shanghai #MWC2017. Let’s unlock the future together!” If Vivo indeed becomes the first company to launch a smartphone with in-screen fingerprint scanner, it will come across as quite an achievement for the company as tech behemoths Apple and Samsung are said to be struggling with the feature’s implementation on their upcoming flagship smartphones.

While Samsung is said to have ditched plans for the feature altogether on Galaxy Note 8, Apple’s iPhone 8 smartphones have been tipped to face delayed shipments as the company is still contemplating the manner in which the sensor should be introduced to its upcoming iPhone 8.

Cabinet Clears Bill To Deal With Crisis In Banks, Insurers

New Delhi: The Cabinet on Wednesday gave approval to a proposal to introduce a Bill in Parliament for setting up a Resolution Corporation to deal with bankruptcy in banks, insurance companies and financial entities. The Financial Resolution and Deposit Insurance Bill, 2017, which aims to instil discipline in financial service providers in the event of a financial crisis by limiting the use of public money to bail out distressed entities, was approved by the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, an official statement said.

The proposed Bill will provide for a comprehensive resolution framework to handle any bankruptcy situation in banks, insurers and financial sector entities.

According to the statement, the Bill when enacted will pave the way for setting up of the Resolution Corporation. It would also lead to repeal or amendment of resolution-related provisions in sectoral Acts as listed in Schedules of the Bill.

Cabinet Clears Bill To Deal With Crisis In Banks, Insurers

“It will also result in the repealing of the Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation Act, 1961, to transfer the deposit insurance powers and responsibilities to the Resolution Corporation,” it said.

The Resolution Corporation would ensure the stability and resilience of the financial system, protecting the consumers of covered obligations up to a reasonable limit and public funds to the extent possible.

The government recently enacted the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 for the insolvency resolution of non-financial entities.

The proposed Bill complements the Code by providing a resolution framework for the financial sector. Once implemented, this Bill together with the Code will provide a comprehensive resolution framework for the economy. It seeks to give comfort to consumers of financial service providers during any financial distress.

It would help in maintaining financial stability in the economy by ensuring adequate preventive measures while at the same time providing necessary instruments for dealing with a post-crisis situation.

The Bill aims to strengthen and streamline the current framework of deposit insurance for the benefit of a number of retail depositors. Further, this Bill seeks to cut down the time and costs involved in resolving the problem of the distressed entities.

 

No Ads Of Realty Projects Without Registering With Regulator

New Delhi: Clearing the air on real estate developers issuing advertisements, the government has said no ongoing or future projects can be advertised without registering them first with the new regulator.

The clarification is likely to further dampen the already subdued real estate market that has seen no real appreciation in value of property or sales growth during the last few years.

The Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act was passed last year to regulate the sector, eliminate fly-by-night operators and protect buyers’ interest. The Act came into force from May this year.

No Ads Of Realty Projects Without Registering With Regulator

Realtors’ body NAREDCO had submitted a representation to Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation seeking clarity on advertisement and sale of the ongoing projects amid conflicting reports and interpretation on the issue.

“Section 3 (1) of the Act prohibits advertisements for all projects (ongoing/future) without registration with the real estate regulator. This provision has come into effect from May 1, 2017,” the ministry said, while responding to the NAREDCO’s letter.

NAREDCO President Parveen Jain said the prohibition on advertisements and sale in the ongoing projects will hit the industry.

As per the Act, Section 3 (1) specifies that “no promoter shall advertise, market, book, sell or offer for sale, or invite persons to purchase in any manner any plot, apartment or building…,in any real estate project or part of it, in any planning area, without registering the real estate project with the Real Estate Regulatory Authority established under this Act.”

For the ongoing projects, this section provides that the promoter should make an application to the authority for registration of the project within a period of three months from the date of commencement of this Act.

Ending the 9-year long wait, the real estate law, which will regulate the realty sector involving over 76,000 companies, came into force from May 1, 2017.

With all the 92 Sections of the Act coming into effect, developers are required to get all the ongoing projects that have not received completion certificate and the new projects registered with regulatory authorities within three months, ending July.

This would enable the buyers to enforce their rights and seek redressal of grievances after such registration.

 

Airtel VoLTE Launch Appears Imminent With Support Added to Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

Last year, Reliance Jio made a groundbreaking entry in the Indian telecom industry with its rock-bottom tariff prices and began offering Voice over LTE (VoLTE) calling technology in the country. While some of Jio’s rival telcos are still busy launching new data offers, Airtel seems to be taking a step further with the rollout of its VoLTE services. An indication of its imminent launch was spotted in the changelog of the latest software update on Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, which adds Airtel VoLTE support.

We’ve reached out to Airtel for a comment on its 4G VoLTE rollout plans, as well as Xiaomi with regards to the feature addition. An Airtel spokesperson responded by saying, “We are piloting/testing VoLTE in a few places but there are no launch timelines that we can share at this point.”

Airtel VoLTE Launch Appears Imminent With Support Added to Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

airtel volte ndtv AirtelThe Airtel VoLTE support was spotted on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 of a Gadgets 360 team member, added with the MIUI v8.2.10.0.MCFMIDL software update. The changelog says “New – Airtel VoLTE support (06-14)”, as seen in the screenshot. Other changes brought by the update include May Android security update, and fixes for connectivity, SD card, and notification issues.

Reliance Jio’s entry into the Indian telecom market has shaken up the entire industry, with free calling on VoLTE networks one of its primary USPs. Rival telcos have found it hard to compete with this, as well as the increased value for money on data plans. Airtel, Vodafone, Idea, and other telcos have been rolling out new plans every week in an attempt to keep customers, and the offering of VoLTE calling is a natural progression to compete on the first front.

OnePlus 5 price in India
There was no word on the OnePlus 5 price in India, as expected, so everyone will have to wait till Thursday’s India launch event to find it. However, previous leaks have suggested the OnePlus 5 price in India will be Rs. 32,999 for the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant, while the model with 8GB RAM + 128GB storage is said to cost Rs. 37,999. The company will host the launch event in Mumbai on Thursday, followed by pop-up events – where fans can purchase the smartphone offline – in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, and Bengaluru the following two days. Amazon India has confirmed that sales of the smartphone will begin from 4:30pm IST on Thursday, June 22 itself.

OnePlus 5 camera
Let’s start with the dual rear camera setup. The OnePlus 5 is claimed to sport what OnePlus calls the “highest resolution dual-camera system on a smartphone today”. This is made up of a 16-megapixel main camera (Sony IMX398 sensor, 1.12-micron pixels) with an f/1.7 aperture, said to capture 34 percent more light than the OnePlus 3T (which had an aperture of f/2.0), coupled with a 20-megapixel telephoto camera (Sony IMX350 sensor, 1-micron pixels) with an f/2.6 aperture.

The company is also boasting of Fast AF, which gives the OnePlus 5 faster autofocus, said to be 40 percent speedier than the OnePlus 3T. The rear camera setup features a dual-LED flash module and boasts of 4K video recording with EIS. The dual camera setup, apart from Bokeh effects, also delivers optical zoom up to 2x, and bumped up to 8x using a multi-frame software algorithm. The rear camera setup also supports the new Pro Mode, with options like ISO, shutter-speed, white balance, a histogram, gyroscope-based reference line, and RAW image editing. OnePlus also announced an improved HDR algorithm, and brought forward its Smart Capture feature for auto adjustments.

As for the front camera, the OnePlus 5 sports a 16-megapixel front camera with a 1-micron pixel Sony IMX371 sensor, an f/2.0 aperture, and EIS. It can shoot full-HD (1080p) video. The front camera can also activate screen flash, with three modes to choose from – On, Off, and Auto. There’s also an Auto HDR mode.

OnePlus 5 features
Getting to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC used on the OnePlus 5, the company reveals the octa-core processor has a maximum clock speed of 2.45GHz, and claims that the coupled Adreno 540 GPU offers up to 25 percent more graphical performance.

With the launch of the OnePlus 5, the company has joined the elite ranks of manufacturers offering smartphone with 8GB of RAM. Till date, only the Asus ZenFone AR holds that distinction. OnePlus is offering the smartphone in two memory and storage variants – 6GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage and 8GB RAM/ 128GB inbuilt storage.

The OnePlus 5 sports LPDDR4X RAM, which OnePlus claims is 17 percent more power efficient than the previous LPDDR4 offering. Also being touted alongside is a feature called App Priority, which learns the apps users utilise most commonly to load them on startup. Apps that aren’t commonly used are deprioritised. Another performance improvement is the use of UFS 2.1 storage and a 2-lane ROM, which together are said to double bandwidth.

The OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T were both plagued by touch latency issues, and OnePlus claims to have solved the issue on the OnePlus 5 by using high-speed cameras that track the movement of the screen and input speeds. The OnePlus 5 sports a slightly smaller 3300mAh battery compared to the OnePlus 3T’s 3400mAh offering, however, with “hardware and software optimisations” manages to deliver 20 percent more battery life than its predecessor. The company carries forward the ceramic fingerprint sensor on the OnePlus 3T to the OnePlus 5, with the same boast of unlocking in 0.2 seconds. The company is also calling the OnePlus 5 a “true world phone”, with support for 34 GSM network bands.

Finally, OxygenOS on the OnePlus 5 gets some new features including Reading Mode, Expanded Screenshots, and a semi-transparent app drawer.

OnePlus 5 design
Let’s now get to the design aspect of the OnePlus 5. The smartphone is built out of anodised aluminium and does indeed look like the iPhone 7 Plus, with the primary difference being the shape of the Home Button. OnePlus has even mimicked the antenna lines of the iPhone 7 Plus. The company is boasting of the slimness of the OnePlus 5, calling it the “slimmest OnePlus flagship ever” at 7.25mm.

oneplus 5 front gadgets 360 oneplus

During the announcement, OnePlus elaborated on the design of the OnePlus 5. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei showed off a new “continuous hard line around the edge of the phone”, called the Horizon Line. The smartphone also sports more rounded corners compared to previous offerings, and also features the iPhone 7 Plus-like crescent-shaped antenna lines on the top and bottom.

OnePlus 5 will be available in two colour variants – Midnight Black and Slate Grey. It retains the single speaker as well as the 3.5mm audio jack on the bottom panel. Other features carried on from previous generations of OnePlus smartphones include hardware capacitive keys (with the option of onscreen navigation) and the Alert Slider.

OnePlus 5 specifications
Now let us take a closer look at the rest of the OnePlus 5 specifications. The OnePlus 5 runs OxygenOS based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It is a dual-SIM dual-standby smartphone with support for Nano-SIM cards. It sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) Optic AMOLED display supporting sRGB and DCI-P3 colour standards, and is protected by 2.5D Gorilla Glass 5.

iPhone 8 May Have a Lot in Common With Google Glass: Report

Augmented reality is one of Apple’s big new areas of focus, which it highlighted earlier this month at its Worldwide Developers Conference. But how will Apple use AR, which involves using a screen to overlay digital objects onto the real world? A new report from UBS Securities analyst Steven Milunovich raises some interesting possibilities.

Apple has already shown at what AR can do – by demonstrating how to use an iPhone to overlay an interactive game board on a real table, for example. But Milunovich suggested 10 additional applications for Apple’s AR play, including some we’ve already seen come to life, such as games and retail. He also sees applications for job training, facial recognition, medical diagnoses and the ability to direct people to safety in case of emergency situations, similar to what Google Glass did to help firefighters find the fastest exits from a building.

iPhone 8 May Have a Lot in Common With Google Glass: Report

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the report.

Combining various applications could also be useful, Milunovich wrote. “Emergency first aid, a combination of remote healthcare and instantaneous education, could save lives. There are legal issues that would need to be overcome but seem solvable,” he said.

Further down the road, Milunovich said, there could be room for iGlass – that is, Apple’s take on a Google Glass-type headset. Could Apple succeed where Google failed? Advances in headset technology, plus some classic Apple design chops, could make the devices more appealing to the non-geek, Milunovich indicated.

The market for augmented-reality glasses is expected to grow over the next several years. International Data Corp. predicted this week that the market for AR and virtual reality will grow from 10 million headsets in 2016 to 100 million in 2021. AR will be slightly behind VR, the firm said, but analysts added that most consumers will probably get introduced to the concept through their smartphones.

The tools for augmented reality that Apple introduced earlier this month open up a range of possibilities to developers and highlight the tech giant’s interest in the area, which Apple chief executive Tim Cook once said was “a big idea like the smartphone.” Apple will need to impress with its 10th-anniversary iPhone, Milunovich said, and in a best-case scenario, a truly innovative iPhone would help the company reclaim its mantle for innovation

But it could face some fierce competition. On Tuesday morning OnePlus announced its much-hyped OnePlus 5, which sports premium power and Android simplicity at $479 (roughly Rs. 30,000). If rumors are true, that’s about half the price of what we could see from the next iPhone. It’s also far cheaper than the iPhone 7 Plus, which sports the same size 5.5.-inch screen and starts at $769 (roughly Rs. 50,000).

Playing up the AR features for the iPhone – using Apple’s innovative design techniques – could be one way to further push Apple to the front of the pack, Miunovich said. The smartphone screen could become a tool for making users more aware of the wider world rather than distracting them from it.

“[We] can picture the phone looking like a clear piece of glass when looking through the camera,” he said in the note. “Rather than staring down at a screen while we walk across the street or stand in line, we would be far more engaged with the world around us.”
