According to Visionox, the dual-foldable design is a breakthrough in the smartphone industry. Based on the existing flexible screen technology of Visionox, Xiaomi and Visionox have jointly overcome the screen technology. Lin Bin revealed that the Xiaomi dual foldable smartphone phone has overcome a series of technical problems such as flexibility of the folding screen, four-wheel folding shaft, flexible cover technology, and MIUI adaptation.

Lin Bin said that if everyone likes it, the company will consider taking it into mass production in the future. According to Xiaomi, the dual-foldable phone gives users the experience of a tablet and a smartphone making it more practical and beautiful.

Xiaomi has not officially confirmed the name of this dual-foldable mobile phone. Lin Bin thought of two names: Xiaomi Dual Flex and Xiaomi MIX Flex. Which will it be?

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria – Full Specifications

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria - Full Specifications 8

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

How Android Smartphones Are Slowly Turning Into Commodities 11

In this post I’ll be looking at a something that has been bothering me for a while – How Android Smartphones Are Slowly Turning Into Commodities.

How Android Smartphones Are Slowly Turning Into Commodities 12

Starting from the end of 2016 till date Android smartphone design aesthetics have moved from being a bit bulky to being almost bezelless.

How Android Smartphones Are Slowly Turning Into Commodities

I appreciate that fact but every good thing comes with a little bad side and unfortunately the bad side of this issue might actually wreck the entire Android ecosystem if companies don’t come up with good enough designs to make people see reasons to actually get a new smartphone.

If you’re wondering what I mean by Android smartphones becoming commodities, well take a close look at this image below.

Can you tell the difference?

Forget about the specs for a while and take a closer look. You know how we all see printers like mere products with different prices, we would see smartphones that way soon. Apart from that the user experience on every Android smartphone is very similar so it’s still basically the same product built on different hardware with an identical design. Doesn’t that remind you of a digital printer or any other computer peripheral?

Even smartphone companies are aware of this hard truth, they want us to buy new phones but with everything in their lineup looking the same it’s harder to sell new flagship device.

So far only Huawei and Vivo aren’t experiencing problems in selling their flagship devices, the rest of the companies , Apple , Google and Samsung are finding it hard to sell their new smartphones and they are responding to this in different ways.

Google announced the Pixel 3A a few days ago, a smaller version of the Pixel 3 , Samsung and Apple have reduced the price of some of their devices (Apple’s price cut only affected China).

Sometime ago, Apple even had to reduce the speed for their older iPhones just to sell the newer ones.

I still give Samsung and Huawei a thumbs up for pulling off the design on the foldable smartphone. However they’re both still very expensive and not something average users would want to spend money on. Irrespective of the mishap that happened on the Galaxy Fold , I still think we can look towards foldable phones to bail the Android OS out. Hopefuly the next version of the Galaxy Fold won’t be a complete mishap.

Apple might actually survive the whole issue since they have total control over their OS, Android on other hand might not. Android Manufacturers should look beyond specs and give us something o
