Huawei Honor 7X hits the Indian market

More than a month after its official debut in China, the Huawei Honor 7X smartphone is getting international attention.

The international “conquest” began in India, and as expected, the equipment remains unchanged.

The new Honor comes in blue, black and gold, while the rest of the equipment remains basically unchanged.

A 5.93-inch screen with Full HD + resolution (2160 x 1080 pixels) was included with an 18: 9 aspect ratio.

An innovation related to the new model is the HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor, with 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage.

On the frontal part, we have a dual camera with 16 MP and 2 MP sensors, and an 8 MP camera in front.

The back side is especially promoted at this terminal, which would have excellent performances if it came with low light conditions.

It also comes with “depth of field” mode, Portrait / Bokeh mode and promises a “professional shooting experience”.

Obviously, this is just marketing language

Huawei Honor 7X would have been strengthened against impact, with special protection at the 4 corners.

There is also a 3340 mAh battery inside and find out that Android 7.0 Nougat is running here.

The terminal has two SIM slots, a microSD slot, a fingerprint scanner and the port is just a micro USB, we do not have USB Type-C here.

The Dacia Mahindra e-Verito was officially launched

Dacia is not yet ready to produce an electric car due to the costs, considering the fans of the brand are used with certain prices when it comes to the cars produced by the European automaker.

However, in order to satisfy a certain category of clients, a new version of the electric powered Logan was recently launched in India.

The model was entitled Mahindra e-Verito and it was created by an Indian company based on Logan 1.

The choice was adopted based on the extremely low price of the Romanian model, which allowed the production of the vehicle at a much smaller price in comparison to its rivals: 13.000 euros.

Obviously, considering that we are talking about the first generation, but also about India, where the safety rules are equal to “zero”, e-Verito it’s not extremely equipped: the airbags, ABS, ESP, radio, central locking are lacking, although some of them can be ordered for the top versions.

The powertrain consists of a 72-volt engine with a power output of 30.5 kW, a maximum torque of 91 Nm, powered by a 17kWh battery, which is charging in a standard 2 kW power socket in 8 hours and 45 minutes or in a 10 kW outlet in one hour and 45 minutes.

The autonomy that the battery provides on this car, 1.7 tons, is about 110 km, under ideal conditions, while the maximum speed can reach 86 km / h.

Mahindra holds the license for Logan 1, from 2007, when they closed a joint venture with Renault.

The Logan model sold under the Renault logo has not been successful, so the partnership was suspended.

Mahindra obtained the license but had to change the name of the car in Mahindra Verito.


What do you think of Tesla’s $200.000 truck?

The electric truck presented by Elon Musk certainly looks good, but this is not that important for those carriers who will become forced to change their entire fleet.

Therefore, Tesla comes with some “interesting” insurances

First, the costs: Tesla’s electric truck will cost 20% less than any other Diesel truck.

In addition, the truck will have a more powerful acceleration, a better slope performance, 805 kilometers of autonomy and a windscreen resistant to a thermonuclear explosion.

The truck benefits from an advanced autopilot, a better treadmill support system, says the controversial engineer.

Tesla will build a network of chargers that will charge the battery in about 30 minutes.

Musk said the use of Diesel trucks is equivalent to an “economic suicide” and the versions produced by Tesla used in the convoy would be cheaper than rail transport.

Elon Musk’s will start producing these trucks in 2019, but despite Tesla’s promises, The Guardian says, the biggest question mark represents the company’s ability to manage the orders.

Musk has not revealed the price of their new model just yet, but he is aware of how big the expenses will be, considering that we are talking about such a platform and, instead of leaving connectivity and other such essential parts to third-party companies specialized in this, the new Tesla vehicle comes with a proprietary connectivity system that can work with many navigational systems on the market.

At specifications, Tesla Semi reaches 100 km/h in 20 seconds, even when it’s loaded with 36 tons.

The new electric truck also incorporates some of the Tesla Model 3 characteristics, the most affordable Tesla electric vehicle: each wheel is propelled by a Model 3 engine and the cabin features two touchscreen displays, the same in the Tesla Model 3 interior.

OnePlus 5T might come in a Star Wars-inspired theme

In case the NVIDIA Star Wars video cards or the Samsung Star Wars vacuum cleaners were not enough, Disney has allegedly scored a partnership with the OnePlus smartphone maker to promote its new movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Several code lines in the Oxygen OS operating system suggest that at least one version of the new OnePlus 5T, to be unveiled today, will be delivered with a pre-installed Star Wars theme as well as exterior design elements inspired by the new movie.

This is not the first time that Disney has made a partnership to promote their movies.

In the past, Samsung promoted the new Marvel series such as Iron Man.

However, the new OnePlus 5T will come in a red color inspired by the new movie logo and an exclusive theme with sounds, wallpapers, and icons inspired by the Star Wars universe.

Of course, on the interior, the phone would be absolutely identical to the OnePlus 5T initial model with a 6 “Full HD + display and configurations with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, or 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage.

Since OnePlus devices are not produced in such a large number, it is very likely that the Star Wars version is available in a very limited series, which will allow the producer to commercialize these with a higher price.

Of course, this information cannot be confirmed before the OnePlus 5T launch event, so all we have to do is wait for the official announcement set to take place tonight, in New York.

The Face ID system was tricked with a 3D mask

iPhone X is the first smartphone launched by Apple equipped with a Face ID software

The not-so-pleasant side of this new and extremely innovative feature is the fact that it’s not infallible.

During the long-awaited conference, during which the notorious iPhone X has been unveiled, Apple has insisted massively upon the idea of how surprising the level security is.

In the same context, the California-based company has insisted the chance that someone else will ever succeed unlocking your smartphone is one million to one.

Moreover, it’s creators has guaranteed on numerous times that Face ID it’s so secure, not even professional acting masks will be able to trick the system.

Unfortunately, their warranties were broken by two twin brothers who proved the Face ID security mechanism can be fooled.

After that, two people with a similar physiognomy managed to trick the same system within seconds.

The latest proof that Face ID can be tricked comes from a group of security experts from Bkav

These guys have managed to create a mask capable of cheating the Face ID system through a 3D printing technology which involves a series of special materials.

Although the mask is 3D, some of the elements, such as the eyes are actually 2D

Finally, the demonstration in the video below is an incontestable one, although it is quite difficult to say whether or not you should worry about the fact this trick is actually working.

The total investment in this trick required $150 in materials, plus the cost of the 3D printer used to produce the mask.
