Xiaomi Mi Band 3 price leaked

Pricing details about the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 have surfaced on Weibo, Chinese social media platform. It indicates that the next generation fitness wearable will be priced at RMB 169 (around Rs 1,800). The pricing seems to be in line with the retail price of Mi Band 2, which was launched in India at Rs 1,799.

While the leak does not reveal anything beyond the retail price of Mi Band 3, it does indicate that Xiaomi is planning another cheap wearable device. The Mi Band 3 is expected to feature a large, full-touch 2.5D curved display and might drop the physical button at the front.

Moto Z3 Play images leak out on the internet

The new live photos of the Moto Z3 Play have leaked out on the Internet and from what we can see, the rumors have not been far off from the actual device shown in the photos. The new images show a closeup of the dual-camera setup on the back of the phone which is set in a circular module as is the previous models.

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL screen protectors leak

A new leak on Weibo shows the alleged tempered glass screen protectors of the upcoming Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. The leaked images show a design similar to that of the Pixel 2 family with Pixel 3 sporting thicker bezels as compared to the Pixel 3 XL.

The screen protector also shows that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will feature front-facing stereo speakers like last year s models. It also hits at notch coming to Google Pixel 3 XL along with a possible implementation of a dual front-facing camera system with the third-generation Pixel smartphones.

Alcatel 3V with 18:9 display launched in India

Alcatel has launched its budget smartphone, the Alcatel 3V in the Indian market. The Alcatel 3V was first introduced at Mobile World Congress 2018 in February and it features a modern design with a taller display and thin bezels and 18:9 aspect ratio.

It also supports expandable storage up to 128GB via microSD card slot. The Alcatel 3V also comes with dual rear camera setup featuring a combination of 12-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors. The primary 12-megapixel camera has f/2.2 aperture and supports phase detection autofocus. At the front, there is a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash for those low-light selfies.
