2. Xiaomi Mi 9 SE may soon be launching globally

The Mi 9 SE that was announced last month is currently available only in China. But that may change soon as the smartphone has been listed on Xiaomi Global's compliance page which hints at the company planning to expand its availability.

However, don't get your hopes high just yet as there are some other smartphones listed on this compliance page that never made it outside of China. But in the case of the Mi 9 SE, we have seen earlier evidence leading us to believe this one will.

There's no word from Xiaomi regarding the global availability of Mi 9 SE, so we will have to wait until more information comes in.

The Mi 9 SE is a toned down version of the Mi 9 and is the first smartphone to come with a Snapdragon 712 SoC. It has 6GB RAM and up to 128GB of storage in tow. Other specifications include a 5.97-inch Full-HD+ display, triple rear camera (48MP + 13MP + 8MP), and a 20MP front camera.

The Mi 9 SE features an in-display fingerprint scanner and packs a 3,070 mAh battery with 18W fast charging support.

3. Akshay's 'Kesari' creates new box office records on first day

This Holi, the box office turned Kesari, courtesy Akshay Kumar's recent release.

Based on the Battle of Saragarhi, Kesari is one of the most talked about movies of the year.

Given the palpable excitement for Akshay's war drama, the movie set the box office on fire.

Helmed by Anurag Singh, Kesari created new records at the box office on the first day itself.

. Surprising all, 'Kesari' emerges as highest opener of 2019

After the intriguing trailer left the audience mesmerized, it was expected that Kesari would open to a decent collection.

But much to everyone's surprise, the war drama went on to emerge as the highest opener of the year.

Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to declare, "Kesari roar. Emerges the biggest opener of 2019 [so far]. Thu Rs. 21.50 cr. India biz".

.'Kesari' replaces '2.0' to emerge as Akshay's second highest opener

Furthermore, Kesari went on to become Akshay's second highest opener ever.

The first place is taken by Akshay's 2018 release Gold, which opened to an impressive collection of Rs. 25.25 cr.

While Gold was followed by Akshay-Rajinikanth's 2.0, with the first day collection of Rs. 20.25 crore, it has now been replaced by Kesari.

We wonder how many records Kesari will shatter.

. 'Kesari' is the story of 21 brave heart Sikh soldiers

For the uninitiated, Kesari narrated the story of the Battle of Saragarhi, which is said to be one of "the bravest battles ever fought" in the history of the world.

This battle was fought between 21 soldiers of the British Indian Army's Sikh Regiment and 10,000 Afghan tribesmen in September 1897.

The regiment, which was led by Havildar Ishar Singh, fought till their death.

. 'Kesari' leaked online by TamilRockers, just a day after release

Meanwhile, Kesari became the recent target of piracy giant TamilRockers and was leaked online just a day after its theatrical release. According to media reports, the movie was available for free download in HD quality. Would this affect the movie's collections? Only time will tell.

4. Motorola One Vision image leaks revealing punch-hole display and 48MP rear camera

We heard quite a lot about the Motorola One Vision in the past couple of days. The smartphone paid a visit to Geekbench and later its detailed specs leaked online. It also popped up on Wi-Fi Alliance's website bearing model number XT1970-1 and running Android Pie. Now today, we are treated to an official-looking press render of the One Vision, which shows its design.

This image comes to us courtesy of Tiger Mobiles. It reveals the phone has a punch-hole display with the selfie camera located in the left corner. The display has small bezels on its left, right, and top, with the chin being comparatively larger.

Moving on to the back, we have a dual camera setup placed vertically in the left with a dual-LED flash down below. The cameras also have text to their right which confirms one of them will be a 48MP unit.

The back of the smartphone, which seems to have a glossy finish, is also home to a fingerprint scanner with Motorola's signature bat-wing logo atop, and further down below, we have the Android One branding.

Other things we can ascertain from this image is that the One Vision will come with a USB-C port placed at the bottom which will be flanked by a speaker and a microphone. We don't see the headphone jack which means it's either placed at the top, or Motorola decided to ditch it.

The One Vision has the SIM card slot located on the left, with the volume rocker and power button sitting on the right. The lockscreen of the phone has the date of April 3 which is when it may go official. You can also see the pill-shaped button at the bottom which indicates the phone will run Android Pie out-of-the-box.

The Motorola One Vision looks the same as the P40 that leaked last December. Well, that's because these are likely the same phone which will be launched under different names in different markets. The One Vision is reported to launch in Latin America, India, and Brazil, with the P40 being China-exclusive.

You can head over here to check out the detailed specs of the One Vision. The P40 will likely have the same hardware, but there could be some differences between the two in terms of RAM and onboard storage.

5. Next-gen iPhone to come with Wireless PowerShare capability

The iPhone 11, or whatever name Apple manages to come up with for this year's release, will reportedly come with Wireless PowerShare support, supply chain sources reveal. Introduced by IDT in 2015, the Qi-based standard for reverse wireless charging (as in, charging other devices off of your smartphone) is supported on the Galaxy S10 series, but the feature was previously available on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

In the Apple realm, having Wireless PowerShare will mean, for example, being able to charge your Apple Watch without carrying its own charger around. Additionally, the second edition AirPods, announced this week, are available with a case that can be charged wirelessly - just how convenient it would be if you can do so from your iPhone 11.

The one issue is that present iPhones don't charge all that fast themselves - at least not with the bundled ancient 5V/1A adapter. The company does make an 18W PowerDelivery adapter that it sells separately, for which you need an extra USB-C to Lightning cable, the two costing a total of around $50. Well, word on the street is, that combo will come bundled with the next-gen iPhone, which will retain the Lightning port. It's not as great as having a USB-C port on the phone in the first place, but baby steps is better than no steps at all.

6. Honor 8X global variant receiving Android Pie-based EMUI 9 update

Earlier this month, Honor released an Android Pie-based EMUI 9 update for the 8X in China. Now the company has begun rolling out this update for the phone's global variant.

This Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0.1 update weighs a whopping 3.14GB in size and brings along improved sound recorder, faster app launch times, simplified UI, and Huawei Share 3.0 to the 8X. It is currently rolling out in Macedonia, but we expect a wider rollout soon.

Last week Honor confirmed it would release Android Pie for the 8X in India starting on March 18, but we haven't heard anything on that later. The company has said that it plans to release the update in batches this month so we expect the Indian units to get an update notification anytime now.

7. vivo V15 and V15 Pro availability expands to the Philippines

Chinese phone maker vivo unveiled the V15 Pro last month and made the V15 official earlier this month. Both these smartphones are already available in a couple of markets, and the latest country they have made their debut in is the Philippines.

The V15 is priced at PHP17,999 ($342) and the Pro variant is priced at PHP23,999 ($456). You can pre-order the V15 until March 29 and the V15 Pro until April 11 with sales starting after those dates.

The V15 is powered by the Helio P70 SoC which is coupled with 6GB RAM. It's built around a 6.53-inch notchless display and has 128GB of storage onboard. The smartphone features a 32MP pop-up selfie camera and boasts a triple camera setup at the back consisting of 12MP, 8MP, and 5MP modules. It comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and packs a 4,000 mAh battery under the hood.

The V15 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 675 SoC and has 8GB RAM. It's equipped with a slightly smaller screen (6.39-inch) and battery (3,700 mAh) but rocks a 48MP primary camera at the back instead of the 12MP one on the V15. It also comes with a fingerprint scanner embedded under the display, with the selfie camera and storage remaining the same as V15.

You can head over here for a detailed specs comparison of this V15 duo, and here for our detailed written review of the V15 Pro.

8. Beats will launch true wireless earbuds in April

CNET learned from a reliable source that Apple-owned Beats plans to release a new totally wireless update to the PowerBeats sport headphones. Apple’s AIrPods are quickly becoming the most popular pair of Bluetooth earbuds and a new Beats alternative could reportedly launch in April.

Apple recently announced updated AirPods with improved battery life, hands-free “Hey, Siri”, and an updated H1 wireless chip. It is believed that Beats’ new earphones will have the same Hey Siri feature, the updated H1 chip, and perhaps better battery life than the AirPods.

There’s no firm information about how much these Beats earphones would cost, but given the AirPods $160 (or $200 for wireless charging) price tag, they shouldn’t cost too much more. CNET speculates Beats could launch with a $250 price tag but suggests they should be $200 or below. The current PowerBeats 3 Wireless retail for $199 and Apple is Apple so… $250 it is.

The new PowerBeats would be a great alternative to those who don’t like the design of the AirPods or would rather use something sleeker. There are other truly-wireless earbuds out on the market now like the $130 Samsung Galaxy Buds or some of the Chinese alternatives from both Huawei and Xiaomi but for iOS users’ sake, any earphones with the H1 chip will work infinitely better for those on the iOS and/or MacOS ecosystems.

9. Huawei P30 and P30 Pro will shoot dual camera video, company confirms

Huawei might as well just call the P30 phones “announced” and get it over with. The latest leak comes from its Singaporean site and does a good job of succinctly listing the best features of the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro as well as detailing the launch promos.

Buying a P30 or P30 Pro on launch day – April 6 – from the VivoCity mall will net you a free Huawei Watch GT and JBL Clip 2 speaker. These freebies are worth a total of SGD 467 ($345/€305). Europe will be getting the watch too (but perhaps not the speaker).

As for the specs (as if we haven’t seen them leaked a thousand times by now), the phones will offer attractive gradient-colored exterior, high-end cameras with great low-light capability and an interesting Dual-View feature.

Dual-View Video will be enabled after launch with an OTA update. It creates split-screen video with two of the rear cameras, showing a wide and a zoomed-in view of the scene.

Other specs include a 40MP “SuperSpectrum Sensor”, capable of shooting at “super high ISO” and low-light video recording. The Huawei P30 Pro will also feature a periscope camera (10x hybrid zoom) with OIS and a ToF sensor.

In Singapore, the new P30 phones will be available through M1, Singtel, StarHub and Lazada.

10. Samsung Galaxy Fold appears on Geekbench, doesn’t impress with scores

Geekbench got an interesting visitor - the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The foldable smartphone didn't score quite as high as its Snapdragon 855 and 12GB RAM suggested.

What that suggests is that the software on the unit that ran the benchmark is far from finalized and Samsung still has plenty of work to do before the April 26 launch.

Another interesting bit is the SM-900F naming, which is the international variant of the phone. If that one is using the Qualcomm chip it's a clear confirmation that we are not getting an Exynos version of the Fold.

Recently, the Fold appeared in a leaked video where we got a glimpse of it in both its tablet and phone glory. Not much could be said in terms of its performance though as the video only lasted several seconds and the device was never confirmed to be a retail version.

11. Scammers caught playing hidden video ads and draining smartphone batteries

Have you ever wondered why your phone has a drained battery in the middle of the day? It might have something to do with a faulty application, running scam ads unbeknownst to you. According to fraud detection firm Protected Media, Ad Stacking was spotted in codes, provided by an ad technology company Aniview. Ad Stacking is essentially showing you one ad, but in the background it is playing multiple videos at the same time, destroying your battery life.

This type of fraud hurts not only you, your device and data cap, but also companies who pay for impressions and views, as well as applications and platforms who are buying and selling advertisement real estate for smartphones. Advertisers are told people are watching their clips but there isn’t enough response, so they have to pay even more.

Craig Silverman, a reporter at BuzzFeed News, contacted Israeli company Aniview which runs a video ad technology platform. Alon Carmel, company CEO, denied any involvement and said the code was created by third-party subsidiaries and exploited by another party. In the video above you can see that a pretty much regular banned about McDonald's or Michael Kors actually has multiple videos hidden behind it.

The reporter declined to name the application or its owner, mostly because they were most likely out of the scheme and were just carrier rocket of the scam. If you have issues with battery draining from any of your apps, consider uninstalling it and letting developers know before more people and their smartphones fall victims of such frauds.

The telecom industry witnessed a disruption with the entry of Reliance Jio. The telco offered plans at a lucrative price and also created a tough competition in the market.The other service providers were also forced to bring down their prices which turned out to be beneficial for the subscribers.

Here’s a list of the best prepaid annual recharge plans that you can currently purchase.

Reliance Jio Rs 1,699 prepaid plan

Reliance Jio offers its customers 1.5GB of daily 4G data along with unlimited voice calls and 100 daily SMS with a validity of 365 days for Rs 1,699.

Vodafone Rs 1,499 prepaid plan

Vodafone also offers a yearly plan at Rs 1,499, however, it is available in the Mumbai circle only. If you reside anywhere outside of Mumbai, you won’t be able to purchase this plan.

Airtel Rs 509 prepaid plan

We weren’t able to find any prepaid plans from Airtel that offer a validity of 365 days. The prepaid plan with the highest validity we were able to find was its Rs 509 plan, which comes with a validity period of 90 days. soas.in

People involved in setting up the Jio GigaFiber have confirmed India Today Tech that Jio GigaFiber rollout will happen in March 2019. Following the trend, Jio GigaFiber is expected to disrupt the broadband industry also by bringing down the prices and intensifying the competition amongst the top broadband players like Airtel V-Fiber and BSNL. msnTarGet.com

Whenever we plan to travel abroad, perhaps one of the first questions that comes to our mind is: “How am I going to stay connected when I’m there?” And that’s not surprising at all. While it’s true that hotels and other places generally have free Wi-Fi in most countries around the world, you still need to be able to make (and take) calls.

Now, you can always get a local SIM (available at most international airports) whenever you land, but it’s always better to plan beforehand. So, the easiest option is to get an international roaming pack activated on your number. That way, you can continue to stay connected through your permanent number, even when you’re abroad.

Telecom operators in India offer quite a few international roaming packs, and these vary based on factors like duration of validity, and calling/data benefits. But which of them offers the best value for your money? To find out, read our comparison between the prepaid international roaming plans offered by three of India’s biggest private-sector telcos – Reliance Jio, Vodafone, and Airtel.

That will give you unlimited incoming calls, 120 outgoing minutes (local and to India), free outgoing SMS, and 1GB of data.

Bharti Airtel, the former market leader, has shown interest in forging a partnership with Vodafone Idea in a joint venture for owning fibre network to focus on expansion. As per an ET Telecom report, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea, both competitors are ready to bow down for forging a joint venture entity which would own the fibre network and would help drive bolstering growth and better influx for both the companies.

Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel Trying to Raise Funds

The business daily reported a top Airtel official saying, “We will be delighted to share and create one company. We have already built a lot of fibre with Vodafone Idea, and over the past two years, a lot of sharing has happened between the two companies.”

Notably, Indus Towers, the biggest tower company of India is jointly owned by Airtel and Vodafone Idea. Now due to the intense tariff war and the financially draining situations of the industry, both the companies have been resorting to different ways to raise funds to meet their capex and operational requirements. While Bharti Airtel has been selling its stake in the tower unit Bharti Infratel and making private placements of shares of its Africa business, Reliance Jio has set aside all of its fibre assets onto another separate entity and has plans to monetise it.

Airtel Plotting to Regain Top Position

Sunil Bharti Mittal led telco, Airtel, plans to regain its previous rank of top Revenue Market Share (RMS) holder by the end of the current fiscal year. Currently, Vodafone Idea has claimed the top spot with 32.8% RMS, with Bharti Airtel lagging behind at 30.9%. Reliance Jio, on the other hand, has 26.1% RMS as reported by ICICI Securities through the data collected by the industry watchdog, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai).

Going by the analysts’ opinions, now the telcos will be able to hike the prices as the industry is headed towards stability owing to the consolidation. Also, since all the three telcos now own almost one-third RMS, the focus will soon be on increasing revenue by increasing prices. Another report by ET Telecom had denoted that Airtel is ready to shed off 60-70 million low-end subscribers in a bid to boost its ARPU.

This fact is definitely reinforced when we get to see the current trend in the telecom industry with operators introducing minimum recharge packs to weed out low paying customers and to increase their ARPU.

Sunil Bharti Mittal led telco, Bharti Airtel has come up with new strategies and plans for its broadband wing in the run-up to launch of Reliance Jio’s GigaFiber FTTH service. Now Airtel is expected to focus on premium customers in the top 100 cities of India instead of laying out an enormous fibre network in the country like Reliance Jio plans to do. Reliance Jio has announced that it would introduce GigaFiber in 1,100 cities of India, in contrast to that, Bharti Airtel will only focus on the top 100, and will cater to the customers who don’t mind paying a decent sum for excellent services. This move is similar to the one implemented in the prepaid segment, where Airtel has introduced minimum prepaid recharges of Rs 35 for its customers.

Airtel to Only Focus on Better Paying Customers

Going by a mint report, a person aware of the matter said, “Airtel’s plan is clear…to stay focused on the top 100 cities… stay focused on the high income, stay focused on high-rise buildings rather than horizontal deployment, as this business model is more economical and logical.”

Reliance Jio’s launch of GigaFiber is expected to bring a similar disruption in the broadband sector as it brought in the wireless industry. Also, on a related note, the Mukesh Ambani led telco has already started registrations for Reliance Jio GigaFiber with the aim of connecting 50 million homes. Back in July, Mukesh Ambani had announced that Reliance Jio GigaFiber would be the most massive greenfield fixed-line broadband rollout globally, which would be launched simultaneously in 1,100 cities connecting households, small and medium enterprises and more.

Like aforesaid, the former market leader will try to take a different way towards the broadband competition as it will only focus on better-paying customers in the tier 1 cities. Right now, the telco boasts of having 2.2 million wired broadband subscribers as per data concluded on September 30. The data from Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) shows that there are 18 million wired broadband subscribers across India.

The source further added to his statement, “As long as it is mid- to high-end of the market, Airtel will compete there very hard and match any prices offered by rivals.” He went on saying, “Two years ago, the company used to do half-a-million home passes every year. Last year it did one-and-a-half-million home passes. In 2018-19, Airtel is deploying 2.5 million home passes. In the next few years, the plan is to end up doing 8-10 million home passes. It already has 10 million home passes. This will make that a total of 20 million.”

It’s worth knowing that in the case of wired internet, the distribution to homes is done via an optical distribution frame with a single fibre which is dedicated to each customer and is named a home pass. However, this pass doesn’t necessarily mean a conversion.

Airtel Home Platform to Club Services Under One Banner

It is also Airtel’s belief that targeting the upper segment would be a logical move since home broadband is a costly exercise and requires more committed spending from customers in contrast to wireless subscribers.

Mahesh Uppal, director at communications consulting firm ComFirst India also remarked, “Given that deployment of fibre is time-consuming and expensive, Airtel’s strategy to focus on the high-end consumers makes sense as it will generate healthier cash flows. It seems wise for the company to not invest heavily in areas where returns are going to be too far away in the long run.” Further, to ensure customer retention Airtel has hinted towards development of a digital platform, Airtel Homes platform, where it will offer bundled services with more benefits to the users.

As per the source mentioned above, there is a slight overlap of the customers using broadband, DTH and wireless services. Thus Airtel’s focus will be on building a platform where users will be able to get benefits from all three services. The platform will provide integrated billing along with discounts. The person also added that a pilot is ongoing in Andhra Pradesh, where customers can buy all three services under the same Airtel Homes Platform banner. Additionally, the platform will not only offer Airtel’s services but will also club other services like home security and surveillance through a third party vendor.

Jio’s expansion and popularity in India is unstoppable, as, in the month of September, they were the only telecom firm to add new users. Both Airtel and Vodafone-Idea lost crores of users in the same month.

The presence and dominance of Jio have triggered unprecedented consolidations in the telecom space: Vodafone-Idea merger is no doubt the biggest among them all.

However, now Airtel and Vodafone-Idea may join forces to fight the mighty Jio, and this can change everything.

What will be this partnership all about? How will they take on Jio with this new arrangement? Keep reading to find out more!

Will Airtel Join Forces With Vodafone-Idea?

As per an unnamed top official from Airtel, they are now open to join forces with Vodafone-Idea and ensure more profits and revenues to defeat Jio by March end.

This alleged partnership will most probably happen in the telecom infrastructure space, rather than in the operations or services space.

In the past as well, Airtel and Vodafone had shared telecom infrastructure and towers, and this can be a new start to their old partnership.

This time, Jio will be the catalyst.

How Will This Work?

As per the information available, Airtel and Vodafone-Idea may float a new company which will be solely working on the optical fiber niche, which can also include towers and networks.

Once this company is floated, revenues can be generated as well, which will help both Airtel and Vodafone-Idea to fight Jio’s onslaught. 5G is about to hit India, and every telecom company and ISP will need services of an optical fiber network.

Immense opportunity for monetization.

The unnamed official said, “We will be delighted to share and create one company. We have already built a lot of fibre with Vodafone Idea and over the past two years, a lot of sharing has happened between the two companies.”

There has been no official comment from Airtel or Vodafone-Idea regarding this update.

Is This Partnership Even Needed?

Strategically speaking, both Airtel and Vodafone-Idea are gasping for air, as Jio is snatching away market share at an unprecedented pace.

As shared earlier, Jio was the only telco to add new users in September, while Airtel and Vodafone, Idea lost their existing customers.

In order to increase ARPU, Airtel and Vodafone are now forcing the users to recharge monthly, and this is causing even more harm to them, as more and more users are now ditching their services, and opting for Jio or BSNL.

Even Airtel had to slash their tariff for 28-day validity plans, due to these reasons.

Hence, if Airtel and Vodafone-Idea want to beat Jio in 2019, then they will need to do something dramatic, and out of the box.

And maybe this new partnership in optical fiber space holds the secret.
