There’s a  new notification system that responds faster and the Xiaomi devices that get the update can now respond to any message directly from the notification bar, without having to stop using the application they are at that time.

Of course there are more features but as you all know by now, I definitely hate spoilers.

Just wait till you get the update to know more.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria – Full Specifications

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria - Full Specifications 14

The Infinix Smart 3 Plus is a new device launched by Infinix Mobile and it comes with decent specifications. It’s a device I would say is a mid-range budget device so don’t expect much power from this phone.

I still feel with Xiaomi around in Nigeria now Infinix would have stepped up their game but it seems they’re just recycling designs ever since they released the first device with a tear drop notch.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Features

The triple rear camera is quite interesting as well.  In terms of design you get a plastic unibody with glass-finish at the back. The glass-finish adds a premium finish to the phone but unfortunately makes it a fingerprint magnet.

There’s also a microUSB port, the 3.5mm headphone jack and a microphone just right below the device. The front of the phone shows the teardrop notch, the selfie camera and the earpiece. Sound quality is not that bad however, The Smart 3 Plus has a downward firing mono speaker which isn’t too loud and you’ll actually prefer using your headphones. I still wonder why Infinix didn’t use the Dirac Speakers in this device.

It has a HD+ resolution display with a 2.5D glass for a premium feel. But I’m a bit disappointed with the 720p resolution and the large display doesn’t actually show what we all expected. It’s a bit low but I’m guessing it’s a sacrifice to put the phone in the budget range.

The back of the phone houses the triple-camera setup .The primary sensor is a 13-megapixel camera with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a low-light QVGA sensor.

Let’s take a look at the quick specifications of the device

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore 17

I woke up to a very disappointing news yesterday,Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore and believe me I was very upset about this move. This is coming at a time where Huawei is making changes to the Android market as we know it and Google revoked their licence based on mere accusations,

Accusations that haven’t been even proved to be true. This decision would probably worsen the trade war between China and the United States.

The consequences of this may end up affecting all technological markets and the world economy in general. Don’t forget that Huawei is the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially

Newer devices from Huawei will not be able to install Android updates, or any Google apps, including Google Play Store and Gmail. However, you can simply access those Android updates through AOSP and GAPPs but without any support from Google.

Donald Trump had accused Huawei of working for the Chinese government, installing back doors in their networks and devices to facilitate surveillance, without any evidence at all.

This made the senior manager of Huawei get arrested a few months ago. Since then, both China and the United States have imposed tariffs on their respective products. Recently, the Trump Administration added the Chinese brand Huawei to the blacklist of the Department of Commerce, hence, forcing American companies to stop having commercial relations with Huawei.

However, according to Reuters, Google is the first to comply with the recently approved law, but other US companies that have commercial relations with Huawei, like Qualcomm, Intel, NVIDIA, will have to make a similar decision.
