iPhone 13 mini

iPhone 13 mini render


  • Phone 13 mini is supposed to have a diagonal camera alignment.
  • The smartphone may feature a shrunken notch.
  • It may also get an in-display fingerprint scann

People just announced plenty of rumoured products at the Spring Loaded event that took place this week. But that’s not the end, the upcoming iPhones that are still a few months away has been leaking for quite some time.

We has constantly been following up on the leaks and rumours around the iPhone 13 lineup to keep you updated with the latest buzz. More recently, leaks around the iPhone 13 mini have started bubbling up at a great pace. Hence, we couldn’t hold ourselves from detailing this particular device.

Despite iPhone 12 mini’s poor performance, Apple seems to has been working on a successor, a credible tipster suggested. Recently more evidence have appeared confirming the existence of the upcoming iPhone 13 mini.

Last week we has seen CAD renders of the iPhone 13 mini hinting towards a different camera alignment. However, there’s no other noticeable change apart from this. Some prototype images of the iPhone 13 mini have appeared to provide more credibility to the renders surfaced online.Not just this, we have more information about the upcoming iPhone 13 mini. So, sit back and read these article to find everything we know so far about this smartphone.

iPhone 13 mini specs and features

More like last year the iPhone 12 series, even this year, we are expecting to see four iPhone 13 models, including the iPhone 13 mini. Further several reports have appeared to suggest that iPhone 13 models will feature a shrunken notch.

A previous leak from Macrumours reveals the front glass panels of the iPhone 13 lineup. This image showcase three different sized glass panels with a small hole for the selfie shooter. Moreover, the top bezel can be seen having a small cutout which we suppose is for the earpiece/speaker.

iPhone 13 mini CAD renders

The CAD renders gave us a close look at the design of the iPhone 12 mini, which is reminiscent of the current iPhone 12 mini. The only visible difference is in terms of the camera placement, which appears to be diagonal instead of one over the other.

As mentioned before, this has further been confirmed by a recent leak that showcases an iPhone 13 mini prototype with a similar diagonal camera setup as seen in the renders. A blog mentioned that the iPhone 13 mini would sport a similar 5.4-inch display as seen on the iPhone 12 mini. Further, the report suggests that the smartphone will use new technology to improve the battery life of the upcoming mini, considering that the current iPhone 12 mini has mediocre battery life.

While we have heard that some of the upcoming iPhone 13 models may go for the portless design, however, leaked CAD renders suggest that iPhone 13 mini will not be the one. The renders showcase a lighting port as seen on all iPhones.

–Moving further, several reports have popped up suggesting the inclusion of an in-display fingerprint scanner for authentication. If this comes out to be accurate, we will see an under-display scanner on the iPhone for the first time.

Rumours also suggest that iPhone 13 models will ship with LTPO displays with support for a 120Hz high refresh rate. However, it is currently unknown which models will feature the same.

Like every year, we will see an updated chipset on the iPhone 13 series in the form of A15 Bionic. We had previously reported that the upcoming lineup might ship with a 4nm chipset. However, a new report has popped up to reveal that the iPhone 13 series will feature a 5nm A15 Bionic chipset. The report further says that the chipset is being developed by TSMC and will begin production in May.

iPhone 13 mini India launch

Apple’s WWDC conference is confirmed to take place between June 7 to June 11. We are expecting Apple to reveal a few details about the upcoming iPhone 13 models. As per the launch date is concerned, we can expect the iPhone 13 mini to arrive in September this year.

iPhone 13 mini India price

Currently, there’s little to no information about the pricing of the iPhone 13 mini. However, considering the fact that the iPhone 12 mini could not bring a lot of success, Apple might want to price the upcoming iPhone 13 mini affordably. As far as the pricing is concerned, we can expect the iPhone 13 mini to ship at a starting price of Rs 65,000.

How to use Google Assistant on Samsung Galaxy Buds

A Samsung might not be a pushing its Bixby voice assistant as much as it used to (remember the Bixby button on phones?), but it’s still present on many of Samsung’s accessories. Most versions of Samsung’s Galaxy Buds has a gesture for activating your phone’s default voice assistant, but if you’re using the Buds with a Galaxy smartphone, the assistant is usually set to Bixby. What if you want to use Google Assistant instead?

There’s no setting in the Galaxy Wearable application to switch virtual assistants, but thankfully, it is still only takes a few steps to use Google Assistant with Galaxy Buds on a Samsung phone. You can also use Galaxy Buds with Amazon Alexa if you prefer that.

Reset the default assistant

The first step is to reset which application on your phone is activated when you use the assistant gesture on your Galaxy Buds. First, find the Bixby app on your Samsung phone, hold down on the icon, and press the Info button when it appears. You can also search for Bixby in your phone’s Settings app, then select the Bixby app.

Tap on ‘Set as default’Tap ‘Clear defaults’

Once you’re at the App info screen for Bixby, tap on ‘Set as default.’ The screen should say something like “this app is set to open by default for some actions.” Finally, press the ‘Clear defaults’ button. This will remove Bixby as the main assistant for your Galaxy Buds.

Choose your assistant

Now it’s time to pick which assistant your Galaxy Buds will use. Your Android phone likely already has the Google app installed, but if you don’t have it for whatever reason, download the Google app from the Play Store. You can also choose Alexa as your assistant if you have the Alexa app installed.

Play Store new Android tool that makes application installs feel faster is now appearing on phones

Google tool that’s help apyp download feel faster is now rolling out on Android devices. Google Application Bundles it is a system that allows developers to build multiple versions of their apps for different device configurations. The Play Store downloads the appropriate APK to the users phone when they are installing the app. To top this, Google Application Install optimization studies which part of the app it is used first when it’s initially opened and this data is used to improve the update and app launch process. This app install optimization is not available on the Play Store yet but 9 to 5 Google seen a Google document for the feature that is already live.

Google is crowdsourcing usage information to help improve app downloads and opening times on Android devices.

When you open an app for the first time, Google keeps a tab on which parts of the application are used first and which parts are not used. For example, when you open Instagram for the first time, you set up your profile first and then find your friends on the app. So, the Play Store first downloads the parts of Instagram that allow you to set up your profile and look for friends on the app and keep the parts needed to post or view stories uninstalled for later till you try to use them or till your connection gets stronger. Data like this can also be used to improve resource management on the device. Instead of opening the entire app on RAM, the phone can load the parts you need the most thereby reducing the load on the processor and the amount of RAM being used.

This data is collected while conforming to Google’s existing privacy policy, writes Android Police, so your personal information is not used. Also, google application install optimization does not look at any other data outside of the app. It does not collect information about what is downloaded or uploaded in the app so anything you post, view, or create on the app will not be sent back to Google for analysis. Reports mentioned that once app install optimization becomes available, Google will let you opt out of the process if you wish. To opt out, you will need to open the Play Store settings page and turn the feature off manually. However, this will only disable the analysis of your usage and you can benefit from the faster load times that are the result of everyone else’s data being processed.

Now, according to several sources, users are starting to see alerts that the app installation optimizer is active. The pop-up message states clearly that the data is being collected, and is being used to speed up app installation procedures. However, the message does not mention that the data will be crowd-sourced and anonymized. 

Google also tells you how to turn this off. 

Google also tells you how to turn this off. 

This new feature is turned on automatically &, Google is also informing users precisely where and how to disable it if they want. If you do not see this on your Android device yet, you should soon enough.

Realme 8 5G in for review

We’re in a transitional period – 5G is becoming more common, but is not yet the prevalent option. This is a why we often get both a 4G or a 5G version of phones, sometimes, the difference between them goes beyond the modem.

That is the case for the Realme 8 5G and it is 4G sibling. Part of it is unavoidable, most chipsets these days have built-in modems, so if you want a 5G modem, you need to switch to a 5G chipset.

Realme picked the Dimensity 700, MediaTek’s most basic 5G chip. A modem is fine – it have a theoretical peak speed of 2.77 Gbps and, considering most next-gen networks are in their infancy, we don’t think you’ll need anything faster in the next couple of years.

Speaking of which, this is the first Dimensity 700-powered phone in India, a country yet to launch its first 5G network. It’s coming, though, current expectations are that the first network will go live in late 2021 or early 2022. It’s never too early to future-proof your phone, we guess.

But this chip can make or break the Realme 8 5G. It is the first Dimensity 700 we’ve benchmarked and while we’ll reserve judgment for the review, we had doubts that its GPU will make the best of the 90 Hz screen.

Speaking of, the 90 Hz panel is an IPS LCD instead of a Super AMOLED like on the 4G phone. As we said, differences go way beyond the modem. The display habs three modes, 60 Hz, 90 Hz and Auto, & at first glance isn’t nearly as bright as the AMOLED panel.

The camera is another concern. With no ultra wide module, we get a pretty basic setup with just a 48 MP camera (well, there are two 2 MP modules, but they barely count). Realme even arbitrarily cut a some features like Starry Mode and Tilt-Shift Mode.

The 48 MP camera on the back really needed an ultra wide friend

We can live without them, of course, but it’s worth keeping in mind that the Realme 8 and Realme 8 5G cost the same – ₹15,000 in India and €200 in Europe. That is quite cheap as 5G phones go, mind you.

Realme 8 Pro and Realme 8 5G side by side • Side-mounted fingerprint reader (LCD, remember?)

But even so, every downgrade makes our wallets shiver. Even if you don’t see the screen as a downgrade (we know some prefer LCD over AMOLED), the camera clearly is. And so is the 5,000 mAh battery, which only goes up to 18W charging (down from 30W on the 4G model).

We do like Realme 8 5G. It has a sleek body and feels sturdier than the vanilla 8. The Supersonic Blue (the colorway we received) looks pretty and seems immune to fingerprints. We worry it might get scratched up, but it’s not that much of a concern since Realme included a case in the box. And an 18W charger too.

A well-stocked retail package, though we still would have preferred a 30W charger

Still, do we like it more than its 4G sibling? Or any of the other 5G phones in this price range? The answer to that will arrive soon in the form of a full review, stay tuned!
