Assorted across 4 series, the watches offer an OLED screen with many colour variants and finishes to choose from. The Vivomove series will start at Rs 24,990 and will be available on e-commerce platforms like Amazon India, Garminstore.in and Paytm Mall.

Vodafone shifts postpaid segment to Vodafone RED

All new Vodafone postpaid subscribers will now be directed to Vodafone RED, the company’s new postpaid branch. These users will be offered Vodafone RED plans that suit their needs and preferences. Further, the existing postpaid customers of Idea Nirvana will also soon be offered similar Vodafone RED subscriptions. According to the company, customers can look forward to “value benefits including Unlimited Local & STD Calls, Rich data, Free International Calls, Free Vodafone Play, Amazon Prime and Netflix and other exclusive benefits.”

Xiaomi Mi 10 camera samples teased online

Ahead of an expected launch on February 14, the Xiaomi Mi 10’s camera samples were teased online today. The phone is expected to be launched with a 108-megapixel camera sensor and the images show a sharp image with less color saturation and noise. A second image zooms in very closely on the same scene. It is still unclear if the second image is a cropped version of the first or a separate shot taken through the expected 5X telephoto lens.

WhatsApp beta gets more solid color options with dark mode

WhatsApp’s latest beta version gets a few more solid color options for users to play around with. The addition of the feature suggests that WhatsApp could be done optimizing dark mode itself on the app. Further, it could mean that when the dark skin finally comes out for stable versions, we could see a more feature-rich version of dark mode rather than a plain grey or black. WhatsApp’s dark mode is expected to come to the stable version soon.
