When Moto Maxx was launched, many people were asking that If they will be able to buy Moto Maxx in India or What will be the price of Moto Maxx in India or if Moto Maxx is coming to India or the basic question – Moto Maxx Specification. So here is the specifications of Motorola Moto Maxx and price of Motorola Moto Maxx in India.

Motorola Moto Maxx Coming to India

The Moto Maxx Launch in India was recently Teased by Flipkart – Motorola’s Official Online retailer. Back in November Motorola launched Moto Maxx, which was the global variant of the Motorola Moto Maxx (exclusive to Verizon Carrier).

— Flipkart (@Flipkart) February 19, 2015

motorola Moto Maxx launch date in India is not clear and nor is the pricing details but we are sure about the Moto Maxx Specification.

Motorola Moto Maxx Specifications

Specs of Motorola Moto Maxx includes a 5.2 inch Quad HD display having the 2560 x 1440 pixels resolutions which brings the pixel density to 565ppi. It has a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer as well. Moto Maxx comes with Quad core 2.7 GHz processor with Qualcomm MSM8926 Snapdragon 805 chipset and Adreno 420 GPU. It is coupled with 3 GB of RAM and has 64 GB of internal memory. It also has a microSD card slot which supports up to 128 GB.

Motorola Moto Maxx specifications comes with 21 MP rear shooter with LED flash and 2 MP of front facing camera. Specifications of Motorola Moto Maxx connectivity option includes 4G, WiFi, GPS, A – GPS, GLONASS, GPRS, EDGE and Bluetooth. This smartphone comes with latest and fastest Android v4.4.4 – KitKat operating system. Motorola already started rolling out Android Lollipop Update last month for the moto maxx so it would be hitting the Indians unit very soon or may be Motorola ships it with the lollipop or may be you can install the update as soon as you take it out of the box. Since Motorola always keeps the software close to stock like in Moto X and Moto G etc. So you are going to get great software experience with the OS and the powerful hardware coupled together.

The Moto Maxx specification wraps up with the mention of 3900mAh battery. The Moto Maxx also has the Motorola’s Turbo Charger which can provide around 8 hours battery backup with just 15minutes of charging as per Motorola.

Moto Maxx comes with a layer of DuPont Kevlar fibre, and as per Motorola, it has inside and out with water-repellent nano-coating, so that means the smartphone is having great waterproofing.

Motorola Moto Maxx Price

After going through the above phase that is the specifications of Motorola Moto Maxx you are having a question in mind that is “What is the price of Motorola Moto Maxx in India?” Moto MAxx is not going to be a mildly priced smartphone and with its toughened kevlar fibred back panel and top notch specs and huge battery, the smartphone is being expected to be even more costlier than Moto X 2nd Gen which costs arond Rs. 30,000 in India. We are expecting that the price of Moto Maxx in India may be around Nexus 6 Pricing and fall in the range of Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 50,000. Also since the Driod Turbo 64GB was priced at BRL 2,199, the exchange price in India turns out to be Rs. 48,000. This might make it a tough sale as you can get a Nexus 6 for slightly less price. May be the pricing will be a bit less than what the exchange rate says. If it is priced a bit close to Rs. 40,000, it would be a fair deal.

Samsung slashes price of Galaxy S4, S5, S3 Neo, E5, E7, Galaxy Alpha in India


t seems that slowly but gradually Samsung is finally understanding the market. Recently, the news started popping out about Samsung loosing its foothold in Indian market and also slipping to low positions in other markets. All this was caused due to Samsung inability to price their smartphone according to the changing market. For eg. Samsung Galaxy A series, no doubt offers premium packaging with their full metal body design but still the other smartphone with same specification from Samsung itself without the metal body is costing a lot less, so considering the Galaxy A series might be hard for many. However now Samsung might have learnt its lesson as Samsung has slashed price of many of its smartphone viz. Galaxy S4, S5, S3 Neo, E5, E7, Galaxy Alpha in India.

Samsung Galaxy S4, S5, S3 Neo, E5, E7, Galaxy Alpha in India Price Cut In India

Revised and discounted new price of Samsung Galaxy S4 in the country now make this a very viable choice and overall Samsung Galaxy S4 price in India makes it the best affordable powerful smartphone from Samsung. This is not the first time, Samsung smartphones have undergone a price cut but this is a noticeable once.

Galaxy S4 Price in India is now Rs. 17,999 and is available via Amazon India. This was launched back in 2013 and comparing the launch price with the current price, you are getting around 57 percent off. This is a real nice price for a smartphone like Samsung Galaxy S4. Samsung offers other smartphones like Galaxy Grand 2 etc at price more than this which are far less capable than what Galaxy S4 could do. Samsung Galaxy Alpha – the first full metal bodied smartphone from Samsung also got a major price cut and now costs just Rs. 26,990 (Available via Snapdeal).

Apart from these smartphones, Samsung Galaxy E5 and Samsung Galaxy E7 also got a price cut. Current price of Galaxy E5 in India is Rs 17,900 and Current price of Galaxy E7 in India is Rs. 20,900.

Along with Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo price has also been revised to just Rs 12,499 (available via Flipkart) which was initially launched at Rs. 25,499. Along with this Samsung’s flagship smartphone of the year 2014, Galaxy S5 price has also been revised and now it costs Rs. 31,999 (available via Flipkart) which once at the launch time was costing around Rs. 51,500.

The price drop must help Samsung address its issue to gain back its market position a little bit. But still unless and until Samsung decides to make sensible pricing of all their upcoming smartphones, Samsung would not be able to sit at the top, specially now, when brands like Xiaomi, Asus and others are now ready with their amazing value for money smartphone which have literally awesome specs for ridiculous price.

Google Nexus 9 32GB LTE Tablet Up For Sale At Amazon India For Rs 43,073

So finally, Google Nexus 9 32GB LTE model is now available in India via Amazon.in. Price of Nexus 32GB LTE model in India as quoted on Amazon is Rs. 43,047. The tablet was announced back in October and so far only the 16GB Wi-Fi only variant was up for sale via Amazon for Rs. 28,900. Nexus 9 turns out to be the safest bet made by HTC but does not really turns out to be a great value for money device.

Should you buy Nexus 9 32GB priced at Rs. 43,047 in India

Short Answer : You can get a better value for money tablet if you like getting the most out of your money. But if you are more into the best software experience and love the Nexus family for its pros and like having latest products, then HTC Nexus 9 is for you.

HTC Nexus 9 32GB LTE model is the best you can get in terms of specifications in all Nexus 9 models. There is a 16GB  Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + LTE model and then you have the 32GB Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + LTE model. None of them have microSD card slot so in any way the 32GB LTE model is the best one you can get for an all round connectivity option and most possible internal memory.

So what you are getting in your Nexus 9 32GB LTE model priced at Rs. 43,047.

Google Nexus 9 made by HTC comes with a 8.9 inch IPS LCD display with QXGA 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution and has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

This is somewhat similar to the Nvidia Shield Tablet which available for a lot less than this tablet, though the processor in Shield tablet is not 64bit enabled but that does not matter that much to normal users. Like Nexus 9, Shield is also running in Lollipop now. Of course, Nexus 9 came with lollipop and since it is of Nexus family, it would be first in line for next updates etc. Talking about the camera, Nexus 9 comes with 8MP rear camera with LED flash but that is just to make you feel that you have a camera as well. There is nothing much to say about that. There is also a 1.6MP front camera. This model of Nexus 9 includes 3.5mm audio jack, Micro-USB, GPS, Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth and LTE connectivity.

Nexus 9 is powered by a 6700 mAh battery and has a nano SIM slot meant only for Internet data. It does not support calls. It has dual front-facing speakers. They are good but compared to HTC’s Boomsound, they are not that great. Nexus 9 is already available in India and is the Indigo Black colour variant on Amazon India. Though the Play Store still lists it as ‘Coming Soon’.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Full Specification Revealed | #TheNextGalaxy

We have been getting a lot of leaks about Samsung Galaxy S6 Full Specification and Samsung Galaxy S6 Design, its camera and what not. Here is all you need to know about Samsung Galaxy S6 Specification, Design, Camera, TouchWiz UI.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Full Specification

Samsung Galaxy S6 Full Specification is said to include a 5inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 67.9% screen-to-body ratio. The screen comes with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels which brings the pixel density number to a whooping 587 ppi. The screen comes with the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Full Specification will be including Samsung’s made Chipset Exynos 7420 which has octa-core CPU (Four cores of Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz & four cores of Cortex-A57 processor clocked at 1.9 GHz). The processor is coupled with Mali-T760 GPU. The smartphone would be running on Android 5.0.2 out of the box with TouchWiz UI at the top.

On the memory side, Galaxy S6 Specification includes 3GB of RAM and has 32GB of internal memory. The smartphone would be coming with a microSD card slot which supports upto 128GB.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Full Specification includes a 16MP rear shooter with LED flash and OIS Technology. It can record videos of 2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps, 720p@120fps resolution. On the front it has a 5MP shooter which can record full HD videos of 1080p resolution.

It comes with several connectivity option like WLAN Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (with dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot), Bluetooth v4.0 (with A2DP, LE, apt-X), GPS (with A-GPS, GLONASS, Beidou), NFC, Infrared port, microUSB v3.0 (MHL 3 TV-out), USB Host. It would also be having all those sensors along with Heartbeat sensor and FingerPrint Scanner as well.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Design

Samsung Galaxy S6 design would be featuring a full metal body design and obviously Samsung would not be making the mistake of last time. At least, we hope that they do not. So far whatever renders we have been seeing (there are many renders), all of them looks stunning and we wouldn’t mind if it actually turns out to be real product. However we cannot say anything for sure.

Along with this, Galaxy S Edge or Galaxy S6 Edge whatever you want to call will also be launched. It would be having a similar but less curved display compared to Galaxy Note Edge. Galaxy S Edge would have the curved Edge on both side.

Samsung Galaxy S6 TouchWiz

Samsung Galaxy S6 TouchWiz is also being said to be reworked for the smartphone and all the extra Samsung apps which are rarely used are being trimmed down to improve the performance. You can always download them if you need them from Samsung’s app store. We do know that how TouchWiz due to its bloated nature somehow hinders the performance of the device specially in the long run, so this is actually a smart move (if it is true). Instead, Samsung is said to be packing some Microsoft apps like OneNote, OneDrive, Office Mobile bundled with a free Office 365 subscription as well as Skype.

This should increase the performance, even better than the Note 4 but whether Samsung would be making this move or not is still in question and also if it is done, how the performance would be affected.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Camera

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S Edge are said to portray a really smart camera which can take stunning picture automatically without the user need to tinker with the settings and perfect angle and stuffs required for a great shot. Samsung are really confident on their smart camera, so much that they recently teased the upcoming camera of Galaxy S6. It is said to feature the same 16MP shooter of Note 4 but would be tweaked more on the software side for better photography.

We do believe in Samsung words, they have to bring something really good to make it a remarkable in every sense. Recently there was a leaked screenshot of Antutu Benchmarks and the performance benchmarking numbers were really amazing. Of course we cannot totally depend on that score and we need to wait for the smartphone to come to actually see how Samsung’s inhouse chip performance.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Concept Video

Samsung Galaxy S6 Full Specification, Samsung Galaxy S6 Design, Samsung Galaxy S6 Camera, all looks really great and promising so far. We are yet to see the actual product, and obviously what would be the price of Samsung Galaxy S6. Stay tuned as Samsung would be unveiling the product on March 1 and we would be live blogging here so make sure to bookmark that link.

Samsung Galaxy Grand 1 and Grand 2 both were price around 20K. Grand Prime came out to be Rs. 13,000. All these price tag does not make the respective smartphone have much value for money aspect.

Buy Redmi Note 4G in India : Now Available without Registration


o Xiaomi has now decided to continue selling the Redmi Note 4G in India without registration and going through all the flash sale hassle. As per the brand, they are now producing enough stock to live with the high demands (as they say).

Buy Redmi Note 4G in India : Now Available without Registration

However the reality seems to be something. Last time that is on February 10th, when Xiaomi scheduled the flash sale for Redmi Note 4G, the stock wasn’t totally cleared. This was the first time, when Xiaomi flash sale wasn’t able to clear up its stock. Flipkart is the official online retailer for selling Xiaomi smartphones in India. They have been conduction the same flash sales starting from Xiaomi Mi 3, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi Note 3G, Redmi 1S. And before this, everytime, they were able to clear their stock, without any problem and that too within a matter of seconds. In fact Xiaomi was the first brand to introduce this flash sale approach to the larger market and ever since brands like Micromax and Lenovo and other have also opted for similar type of sale model.

Even though Xiaomi says that they are now able to produce enough stock to be sold without flash sale, we feel the truth turns out to be different. The decreasing demand for the Xiaomi has to do something with this. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G in India costs Rs. 9,999 while Micromax Yureka which has better specs is price at Rs. 8,999. Yureka is also sold via the same flash sale model on Amazon India and they have been doing record sale and are able to clear up their stock within matter of second.

The great specs and price combo of Yureka makes this smartphone more valuable than Redmi Note 4G offering. Recently the stock of Mi 4 16GB model was sold in the flash sale via Flipkart in 15 seconds. Mi 4 64GB model is going to be up for sale on February 24th. We do feel this flash sale would be successful one. However one thing is clear that Redmi Note might see its end soon.
