The headphones are likely to support wireless pairing like the AirPods.

Android P Developer Preview

Google’s next OS version, Android P, is expected to be introduced at the company’s annual I/O conference. Ahead of the main unveiling, the company will be releasing a number of developer preview versions for Android P, with the first version expected to arrive in mid-March. In the past, Google rolled out up to five preview versions, and it is expected there will be similar preview versions for the Android P as well. This year, the old Nexus series is unlikely to be supported.

Xiaomi Mi TV 4C price reveal, Mi TV 4A launch

Xiaomi hit the news twice today; first with the price of its Mi TV 4C being leaked in India, and second through the official launch of its Mi TV 4A smart LED TV in China. The company is expected to announce new Mi TV series in India, however, ahead of the launch on March 7, price of the Mi TV 4C got accidentally listed on the official Xiaomi India website. Based on that, the Mi TV 4C (43-inch) will be priced at Rs 27,999.

In China, Xiaomi quietly launched its Mi TV 4A (40-inch) with voice control. The new 40-inch Mi TV 4A is priced at RMB 1,699 (approximately Rs 17,500). It features an ultra-thin profile similar to the Mi TV 4, and measures 241mm at the base. Now it is unclear if the same model will also be introduced in India at the March 7 event.

Skype for lower-end Android phones

In what will make video-calling easier for users with low-end Android phones, Microsoft announced a new version of Skype that reduces the memory and storage demands on devices running older version of Android. With lower consumption of the memory, the app will be able to provide a stable service even with spotty connectivity and will be easier to use on low-end phones as well. It will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
