Xiaomi is all set to launch the Mi Max smartphone in India on Thursday


Xiaomi is all set to launch the Mi Max smartphone in India on Thursday, alongside unveil the global ROM of MIUI 8. The New Delhi event will start at 11:30am IST. Last week, the company launched its Mi Community in India. The community will allow interested users to share feedback, participate in contests, and also attend Xiaomi launch events in the country.

The Xiaomi Mi Max was launched in China in May, and is the company’s “largest smartphone yet,” sporting a massive 6.44-inch full-HD (1080×1920) 342ppi display. It sports an all-metal body and will be available in Dark Grey, Gold, and Silver colours. The Mi Max also features a fingerprint scanner which is located at the rear panel.

While Xiaomi had launched the Mi Max in China in three variants, CNY 1,499 (roughly Rs. 15,000) for the 3GB RAM and 32GB storage model powered by a 1.8GHz hexa-core Snapdragon 650 processor; CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs. 17,000) for the 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage model powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, and a third model priced at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 20,500) for the 4GB of RAM with 128GB of storage and powered by Snapdragon 652 processor, we can expect the company to bring only a single SKU to India, as it has done in the past.

The Xiaomi Mi Max sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and LED flash. There is a 5-megapixel front camera also on board with 85-degree wide-angle view, and a f/2.0 aperture.

The dual-SIM handset supports 4G LTE with VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS/ A-GPS with Glonass, and Wi-Fi 802.11ac with Mimo. It is backed by a massive 4850mAh battery. It features a hybrid SIM tray. It measures 173.1×88.3×7.5mm and weighs 203 grams.

The smartphone sports an infrared emitter to act as a universal remote control, apart from an ambient light sensor, gyroscope, accelerometer, and proximity sensor.

As for MIUI 8, the company last week released it in the form of a China Developer ROM (v 6.6.16). The company alongside also released a detailed changelog, but we can expect some changes between the global ROM and the China Developer ROM.

The company had first unveiled MIUI 8 at its Mi Max launch event in May, where it detailed a bunch of new features and changes. Last week, Xiaomi said the MIUI 8 China Developer ROM now includes over a thousand optimisations apart from new features.

Razer announced its latest gaming mouse, the Razer Naga Hex V2.

Designed for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games, the Razer Naga Hex V2 buffs it to an OP level, with a 7 button mechanical thumb wheel optimized for MOBA gaming and pre-configured MOBA profiles for maximum in-game efficiency.

“This gaming mouse will help MOBA gamers achieve a better balance between keyboard and mouse commands, allowing you to react better to different situations,” says Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, mid-laner for Team SKT’s professional “League of Legends” team. “The placement of those extra buttons gives you accuracy without the worry of mis-clicking.”

The world’s most advanced mouse technology powers the Razer Naga Hex V2. A 5G, true 16,000 DPI laser sensor ensures that movements across any display setup register precisely, whether it is a multi-monitor battle station or a 4k screen.

“The MOBA scene has become the most watched genre of eSports in the world, making games like League of Legends and Dota 2 more popular in terms of audience than many professional sports leagues,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We made the first mouse that was ever designed for these players and we’re happy to have improved upon an already great design.”

The Razer Naga Hex V2 follows Razer’s initial foray into mice designed specifically for MOBA players. Inventors of the original gaming mouse in 1998, Razer’s interest in advancing gaming has led to the company making mice specifically designed for MMO, mobile, ambidextrous and even left-handed gameplay.

Razer’s latest mouse will also exploit Powered by Razer Chroma™ technology, which unlocks customizable lighting features that can be synced across devices. Gamers can pick and choose from 16.8 million colors and a variety of effects. Custom settings can be created on the Razer Synapse software platform and shared with millions of other Razer software users via the Razer Chroma Workshop. In-game Razer Chroma lighting profiles are also integrated into popular game titles, including “Overwatch”, "Call of Duty®: Black Ops III", "Blade and Soul" and more. These profiles can display tutorials, in-game actions and more.

Sennheiser looks to set up stores in India

Family-owned German premium audio products maker, Sennheiser, is exploring options to set up company-owned stores in India and also evaluating options for manufacturing and assembling in the country at a later stage, global CEO Andreas Sennheiser said. Talking to ET, Sennheiser said the company will initiate talks with the government to relax the 30% local sourcing norm as the company makes products that involves cutting edge technology.“However, the government should not link direct retail presence with manufacturing or sourcing in India since making such a hard connection may discourage a lot of companies. Instead, the government should evaluate each proposal on a case-to-case basis. For companies who are keen to set up manufacturing, this can be a potent and win win package,” said Sennheiser, who is currently in India as part of his annual visit to the country. The government last week decided to relax local sourcing norms for companies with ‘cutting edge’ technology keen to open own stores in the country for up to eight years. This may pave the way for Apple to set up its own stores in the country as it wants a direct presence. Even Chinese smartphone maker LeEco has applied for relaxation from sourcing clause for its stores..Sennheiser said the company at present has around five company-owned stores globally, but it would want to ramp-up its direct presence in India which is the fastest growing big market globally. The company is growing sales at 30% year-on-year, but declined to share financials. “India is becoming a premium market for consumer audio products and we have the largest share of voice amongst all brands. The pace at which we are growing, India would become amongst the top ten markets for us in next two years,” said Sennheiser. He said its most expensive headphone priced at around 50,000 will be launched in India soon.
Sennheiser said the company has been exploring options to manufacture or assemble in India ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi went to its home town Hannover last year and made a strong pitch for Make in India.

With the aim of providing a more immersive classroom environment, Dell launched a 70-inch touchscreen interactive display on Monday that can find its application in both classrooms and office board rooms. The $4,995 (roughly Rs. 3,40,000) full-HD display was launched by the company at International Society for Technology in Education 2016 Conference and Expo in Denver, Colorado.The Dell C7017T interactive conference room monitor supports 10-point multi-touch for the hand, and comes with two included styluses. The 70-inch touchscreen display also comes with anti-glare and anti-smudge coating on the cover glass, and monitor components for clear text and images, Dell said in a statement. Apart from regular plug and play options, the monitor comes with a VGA port, Ethernet port, and optional Wi-Fi connectivity. It is now available on Dell.com.Dell launched slightly more affordable alternatives in the form of two ultra short throw projectors – the Dell S560T and Dell S550P – that project images and videos onto walls or screens up to 100 inches with a full-HD resolution. Both projectors offer interactivity, with the former providing 10-point touch interactivity and support for a stylus, while the latter uses active styluses (IR Pens). Both projectors will be available from July 12, but pricing has not been detailed.Companies such as Samsung, Sharp, and Elo already have interactive displays of sizes 70-inches or more in their portfolios. With the increasing demand of large interactive displays, it will be interesting to see which company conquers the space and whether schools and enterprises will go for expensive displays or stick to comparatively cheaper projectors.The company also unveiled its Chrome-based software solution Dell Classroom, which is aimed at improving the collaboration between teachers and the students. It enables students to raise their hands virtually and answer via personal texts to the teacher, therefore encouraging participation from hesitant students and those with special needs.“Educational environments are more interesting when students get to speak up, share ideas, work together and learn the way they want to learn,” Bert Park, Vice President of Software and Peripherals at Dell, was quoted as saying in the statement.

Epson continues raids on counterfeit ink manufacturing units in Mumbai


In an effort to curb the sale of counterfeit ink bottles and to protect the rights of its customers, Epson conducted a series of raids this year in Mumbai, where operatives have generated information about fixers involved in filling, bottling, packaging and distributing counterfeit EPSON ink in the city and in many parts of India.  In an effort to send a strong message of zero tolerance towards the sale of fake cartridges, the police in different parts of the country have stepped up their cooperation and efforts to arrest and terminate such practices.On the basis of the information shared by Epson vigilance team, the Mumbai police raided the premises of a dealer in Wadala East, Mumbai in a swift and well-coordinated action on 31st May. The dealer was involved in the manufacture and supply of counterfeit Epson Ink bottles in Mumbai and to other parts of the country. The manufacturer of the Epson counterfeit Ink bottles, Narayan, was arrested on the spot and charged under the prevailing laws of the land with counterfeiting and violating intellectual property rights and was subsequently remanded to judicial custody. About 560 packed Ink bottles with the mark “EPSON” were seized along with other printing material and machines used by this business for making counterfeit EPSON ink bottles.A spokesperson at Seiko Epson Corporation said “The Mumbai police deserves accolades for successfully conducting the counterfeit raid and limiting the damages to a bare minimum. They have supported Epson consistently in curbing this issue that we feel strongly about. He went on to say, “We at Epson take great pride in our strict practice of following laws and regulations. Maintaining high standards of corporate ethics while encouraging everyone to respect the rights is the paramount objective at Epson. We will continue to take stringent measures against those that inappropriately use Epson’s patented technology.”Seiko Epson Corporation will continue to back the enforcement authorities for such raids in future. This is to further safeguard its interests and to defend the business of its authorised dealers.

NVIDIA Tesla P100 Supercharges HPC Applications By More Than 30X

NVIDIA introduced the NVIDIA® Tesla® P100 GPU accelerator for PCIe servers, which delivers massive leaps in performance and value compared with CPU-based systems.Demand for supercomputing cycles is higher than ever. The majority of scientists are unable to secure adequate time on supercomputing systems to conduct their research, based on National Science Foundation data1. In addition, high performance computing (HPC) technologies are increasingly required to power computationally intensive deep learning applications, while researchers are applying AI techniques to drive advances in traditional scientific fields.
The Tesla P100 GPU accelerator for PCIe meets these computational demands through the unmatched performance and efficiency of the NVIDIA Pascal™ GPU architecture. It enables the creation of “super nodes” that provide the throughput of more than 32 commodity CPU-based nodes and deliver up to 70 percent lower capital and operational costs2.“Accelerated computing is the only path forward to keep up with researchers’ insatiable demand for HPC and AI supercomputing,” said Ian Buck, vice president of accelerated computing at NVIDIA. “Deploying CPU-only systems to meet this demand would require large numbers of commodity compute nodes, leading to substantially increased costs without proportional performance gains. Dramatically scaling performance with fewer, more powerful Tesla P100-powered nodes puts more dollars into computing instead of vast infrastructure overhead.”The Tesla P100 for PCIe is available in a standard PCIe form factor and is compatible with today’s GPU-accelerated servers. It is optimized to power the most computationally intensive AI and HPC data center applications. A single Tesla P100-powered server delivers higher performance than 50 CPU-only server nodes when running the AMBER molecular dynamics code3, and is faster than 32 CPU-only nodes when running the VASP material science application4.Later this year, Tesla P100 accelerators for PCIe will power an upgraded version of Europe’s fastest supercomputer, the Piz Daint system at the Swiss National Supercomputing Center in Lugano, Switzerland.“Tesla P100 accelerators deliver new levels of performance and efficiency to address some of the most important computational challenges of our time,” said Thomas Schulthess, professor of computational physics at ETH Zurich and director of the Swiss National SupercThe Tesla P100 for PCIe is the latest addition to the NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform. Key features include:Unmatched application performance for mixed-HPC workloads — Delivering 4.7 teraflops and 9.3 teraflops of double-precision and single-precision peak performance, respectively, a single Pascal-based Tesla P100 node provides the equivalent performance of more than 32 commodity CPU-only servers.CoWoS with HBM2 for unprecedented efficiency — The Tesla P100 unifies processor and data into a single package to deliver unprecedented compute efficiency. An innovative approach to memory design — chip on wafer on substrate (CoWoS) with HBM2 — provides a 3x boost in memory bandwidth performance, or 720GB/sec, compared to the NVIDIA Maxwell™ architecture.Page Migration Engine for simplified parallel programming — Frees developers to focus on tuning for higher performance and less on managing data movement, and allows applications to scale beyond the GPU physical memory size with support for virtual memory paging. Unified memory technology dramatically improves productivity by enabling developers to see a single memory space for the entire node.Unmatched application support — With 410 GPU-accelerated applications, including nine of the top 10 HPC applications, the Tesla platform is the world’s leading HPC computing platform.AvailabilityNVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU accelerator for PCIe-based systems is expected to be available beginning in Q4 2016 from NVIDIA reseller partners and server manufacturers, including Cray, Dell, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM and SGI.

Lenovo Bets Big On India To Fix Dropping Smartphone Biz

LenovoLenovo is now betting big on the Indian market to fix the dropping smartphone business. Lenovo, which received about USD one billion in revenue from India last year, is also looking at bringing in more premium devices here, including new Moto Z smartphones that can be customized with ‘mods’.“We will continue to invest in the market and grow our share here, there is a strong long term potential,” PTI report published in Economic Times quoted Lenovo Senior Vice President and Co-President Mobile Business Group (MBG) Aymar de Lencquesaing as saying.He added the potential in the Indian market is huge as 4G networks are being rolled out by telecom operators and there is robust economic growth.“We have a share of about nine per cent and we are focused on growing that. Getting to double digits should not be difficult,” he said.Lenovo reported its first loss in six years, majorly hit by exceptional acquisition and restructuring costs as well as weak sales for its smartphones business. Lenovo booked a net loss of $128 million for the year ended March 31, which compared with a profit of $829 million the previous year and analysts’ expectations for a loss of $123.6 million, according to Thomson Reuters SmartEstimates.Last year, Lenovo’s revenues from India grew about 90 per cent, even as that from China declined 26 per cent. Overall, revenues grew 68 per cent.According to research firm Gartner, smartphone sales are expected to slow down in 2016 globally, rising only seven per cent compared to double digit growth seen in previous years.This is on the back of slower sales growth in mature markets like Europe and Japan. Smartphone sales were flat in China in 2015 and little growth is expected in the next five years. India, on the other hand, remains an opportunity and presents the highest growth potential, Gartner said.Asked about the investment plans, Lencquesaing said the company is studying ramping up the manufacturing capacity in India from the current 6 million units. The enhanced capacity will be for meeting requirements in India and there are no plans to export from here as of now.In August last year, Lenovo had partnered contract manufacturer Flextronics to start making Motorola and Lenovo smartphones in India at the latter’s unit at Sriperumbudur near Chennai.Lenovo is also bullish on the talent pool in India and said it works actively with developers here. It also has a R&D unit in Bengaluru. Lenovo’s MBG sales for the quarter ended March 2016 stood at USD 1.7 billion. It shipped 10.9 million smartphones in the fourth quarter and 66.1 million in the full year. Motorola contributed nearly 5 million units in the quarter to Lenovo’s total, while adding USD 1 billion to MBG revenues.
