LG has quietly introduced the Stylus 3 smartphone in India. Priced at Rs. 18,500, the LG Stylus 3 is now listed on the company’s website, and can be expected to go on sale in the coming days. It’s worth pointing out that the official website lists the MRP of the Stylus 3, and we can expect the market operating price (MOP) to be slightly lower.

The LG Stylus 3 was launched in December, and was showcased at the CES 2017. At the global launch, LG had claimed that the Stylus 3 will strengthen the company’s portfolio in the mid-range segment.

Qualcomm to Buy NXP Semiconductors for Enterprise Value of $47 Billion

Qualcomm to Buy NXP Semiconductors for Enterprise Value of $47 Billion

Qualcomm Inc said on Thursday it had agreed to buy NXP Semiconductors NV for an enterprise value of about $47 billion (roughly Rs. 3,14,208 crores), as it seeks to expand the reach of its chips from phones to cars.

Qualcomm said it would offer $110 per share in cash, a premium of 11.5 percent to NXP Semiconductor’s Wednesday’s close.

The equity value of the deal is $37.88 billion, according to Reuters calculations based on the company’s 344.4 million diluted shares as of October 2.

Qualcomm intends to fund the transaction with cash on hand and new debt.

The transaction, which is expected to close by the end of 2017, is structured to use offshore cash flow in a tax-efficient manner to rapidly reduce leverage, Qualcomm said.

Qualcomm expects the deal to significantly add to adjusted earnings immediately upon close and generate $500 million of cost savings annually within two years after the deal closes.

The deal would make Qualcomm, which currently supplies chips to Android smartphone makers and Apple, a bigger supplier to the fast-growing automotive industry.The combined company is expected to have annual revenue of more than $30 billion (roughly Rs. 2,00,566 crores), the companies said.

San Diego-based Qualcomm is facing slowing smartphone sales and stiff competition from Chinese and Taiwanese rivals.

The company is currently ranked third in terms of revenue among global semiconductor companies in 2015, while Eindhoven, Netherlands-based NXP is ranked seventh, according to research firm IHS.

NXP’s shares rose 2.4 percent to $101, while Qualcomm shares were up nearly 2 percent to $69.50 in premarket trading.

iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus India Launch Today: Everything You Need to Know

iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus India Launch Today: Everything You Need to KnowIndia’s biggest smartphone launch of the year is upon us – Apple’s release of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. Unlike recent years, where we’ve seen midnight launches, the smartphones are expected to become available to buy via online retailers and Apple authorised resellers in the country from 7pm IST on Friday.

This year’s iPhone models come in three storage variants – 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The 32GB iPhone 7 has been priced at Rs. 60,000, while the 128GB iPhone 7 has been priced at Rs. 70,000, and the 256GB iPhone 7 has been priced at Rs. 80,000. The 32GB iPhone 7 Plus has been priced at Rs. 72,000, the 128GB iPhone 7 Plus has been priced at Rs. 82,000, while the 256GB iPhone 7 Plus has been priced at Rs. 92,000.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in Gold, Jet Black, Matte Black, Rose Gold, and Silver colour variants in India. Apart from the new colours and new storage capacities, there are several major differences between the last generation and the current generation iPhone models. The biggest of these are the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack (Apple is bundling a Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter with each phone however) and IP67 rating for dust, splash, and water resistance. The current generation is lighter and faster than the previous, and comes bundled with Lightning-powered EarPods.

 

The iPhone 7 sports a 3D Touch-enabled 4.7-inch Retina HD display with a resolution of 750×1334 pixels at a pixel density of 326ppi, and a wide colour gamut.  It is powered by the Apple A10 Fusion processor alongside the M10 motion coprocessor. It bears a 12-megapixel rear camera with an f/1.8 aperture, a six-element lens, optical image stabilisation, a Quad-LED True Tone flash, and a sapphire crystal lens cover. The rear camera is capable of 4K video recording at 30fps, and 1080p HD video recording at 60fps. The FaceTime HD camera on the front bears a 7-megapixel resolution and is capable of 1080p HD video recording. It measures 138.3×67.1×7.1mm, and weighs in at 138 grams.

The iPhone 7 Plus on the other hand sports a 3D Touch-enabled 5.5-inch Retina HD display with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels at a pixel density of 401ppi, and a wide colour gamut as well as a bigger battery than the iPhone 7. It bears a dual rear camera setup – one 12-megapixel wide angle lens camera with an f/1.8 aperture, and one 12-megapixel telephoto lens camera with an f/2.8 aperture. It measures 158.2×77.9×7.3mm, and weighs in at 188 grams, with the rest of the specifications similar to the iPhone 7.

Samsung Could Face Second Recall as US Probes Burnt Galaxy Note 7

Samsung Could Face Second Recall as US Probes Burnt Galaxy Note 7Samsung could face an unusual second recall of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones if one that caught fire aboard an airliner this week is a replacement device as its owner says, two former US safety officials said.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the Consumer Product Safety Commission are investigating Wednesday’sincident, when a passenger’s phone emitted smoke on a Southwest Airlines Co. plane readying for departure from Louisville, Kentucky. A flight attendant doused it with a fire extinguisher, and the plane was evacuated without injury.

 

“If it’s the fixed phone and it started to smoke in his pocket, I’m going to guess there’ll be another recall,” said Pamela Gilbert, a former executive director of the consumer agency. “That just doesn’t sound right.”

Samsung has been engulfed in crisis since the Galaxy Note 7 smartphones began to burst into flames just days after hitting the market in August. The Suwon, South Korea-based company announced last month that it would replace all 2.5 million phones sold globally at that point. Samsung said it had uncovered the cause of the battery fires and that it was certain new phones wouldn’t have the same flaws.

The first indications of the existing recall’s financial impact could be seen Friday with the company’s release of earnings that rose at the slowest pace in five quarters. Operating income increased just 5.5 percent to KRW 7.8 trillion ($7 billion or roughly Rs. 46,812 crores) in the three months ended September 30.

China incident
The US safety commission could decide as early as next week on what steps to take, said Gilbert, a partner in Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca, LLP in Washington. “This is not something you want to leave hanging out there,” she said.

Nancy Nord, a former acting chairwoman of the safety commission, said a second recall doesn’t happen very often.

“Certainly they could do another recall, if it appears this is something beyond an aberration,” she said.

“They need to determine if this was a remediated phone, and if so why did this happen?” said Nord, who is of counsel at Olsson Frank Weeda Terman Matz PC in Washington.

CPSC spokesman Scott Wolfson declined to comment on what action may be taken.

Bloomberg News last week interviewed a customer in China who said his new Galaxy Note 7 had exploded less than 24 hours after it was delivered. The company said it was investigating the incident.

The owner of the phone involved in Wednesday’s incident told investigators it was a replacement Galaxy Note 7, said Captain Kevin Fletcher of the Louisville Metro Arson Squad.

 

Arson squad
“Due to the damage to the phone itself, we have not been able to physically confirm that yet,” Fletcher said during an interview. “We’re in the process of trying to attempt that.”

Samsung and US officials announced the recall after 92 reports of batteries overheating in the US, with 26 cases involving burns.

Samsung, FAA and Consumer Product Safety Commission representatives were in Louisville and working with arson investigators, Fletcher said. The phone remains in the possession of the arson squad, which is trying to schedule laboratory tests on the phone. It hasn’t been determined where or when those tests will occur, Fletcher said.

There was “extensive heat damage” to the phone and the plane’s carpet, he said.

Brian Green, the phone’s owner, told WAVE television news in Louisville that he got a replacement phone at a retail store after receiving an e-mail about the recall. “It was a good phone, by all indications, from all the information Samsung provided,” Green said. “But it just had its issues.”

Billowing smoke
On the plane, he turned the phone off and put it in his pocket. The device made a popping sound and sent “smoke just billowing out of my clothes,” Green said. He dropped it to avoid getting hurt.

Samsung said in a statement Wednesday that it couldn’t confirm that the incident involved the new phone but would have more information after examining the device. The company didn’t offer an update Thursday and a spokeswoman had no immediate reply to a request for comment on the possibility of another recall.

 

The CPSC and Samsung have a range of options, from a broad new recall if systemic flaws are discovered in the replacement devices to no action if they don’t find any broader safety issues.

While the safety agency has legal authority to order recalls, that requires court action and could take months. Instead, it almost always operates in collaboration with companies, as it did with Samsung.

Apple competitor
Samsung had raced to complete the introduction of the Galaxy Note 7 before Apple could unveil its new iPhone 7. The Galaxy Note 7 features a larger battery that can store more power than its predecessor.

 

A battery supplier made the power packs slightly too large for the phone’s compartment, the consumer safety commission said when announcing the recall September 15. As a result, the battery components were sometimes pinched, which could cause a short circuit, according to the agency.

Rechargeable lithium-ion cells like those in the Samsung phones are made with highly flammable chemicals. When they fail, they can generate intense heat or sparks that can ignite those chemicals.

The United Nations International Civil Aviation Organization earlier this year banned bulk shipments of lithium-ion cells from passenger flights after tests showed that they could violently explode even after being doused with fire extinguishers.

Three cargo aircraft have been destroyed in fires linked to lithium battery shipments since 2006.

LG V20 Goes on Sale This Week; US Pre-Orders Expected to Start October 17

LG V20 Goes on Sale This Week; US Pre-Orders Expected to Start October 17LG at its September 7 event launched the first new smartphone to run Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box – the LG V20 – with dual screen and dual cameras. The price and availability details were not given by the company then. Now the company has officially confirmed that LG V20 is going to be available starting this week. The smartphone will make its public debut in LG’s home country, South Korea, followed by other regions like North America, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East over the course of the next several weeks. Pricing and availability for each region will be announced at the time of the local launch.

In addition to that, US e-commerce website B&H has listed the unlocked version of LG V20 for pre-orders starting October 17. However, it has not specified the price and availability of the smartphone in the US on its website. However, according to The Korea Times, LG V20 is reported to be priced at an equivalent of $804 (roughly Rs. 53,000) in its home market South Korea, where it is also launching first.

To recall, the LG V20 is an attempt from the company to revive the sales, as its flagship – the modular LG G5 smartphone – failed to do well in the market. It comes with a 5.7-inch main IPS Quantum Display and also a secondary display, such as was seen on the LG V10. The secondary display comes with a font size that’s 50 percent larger than that of V10.
The LG V20 packs a quad-core Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 CPU, with two cores clocked at 2.15GHz and the other two running at 1.6GHz. It has 32GB and 64GB inbuilt storage options, with a support to expand via microSD card (up to 256GB). It also packs a 3200mAh battery. There is a dual rear camera setup in the smartphone, with a 135-degree 8-megapixel lens accompanied by 16-megapixel 75-degree lens, apart from a 5-megapixel 120-degree lens shooter on the front.

The V20 comes with features like 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, HD Audio Recorder, and B&O Play speakers. It houses a bottom-mounted USB Type-C port and it will be available Titan, Silver, and Pink colour variants. In the meanwhile, LG India’s Managing Director, Kim Ki-Wan, confirmed to Gadgets 360 that the company plans to bring the LG V20 smartphone to India soon.

Flipkart Becomes Authorised Online Reseller for iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus

Apple Partners Flipkart to Sell iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus in India

  • iPhone 7 will start at Rs. 60,000 for the 32GB variant
  • iPhone 7 Plus will start at Rs. 72,000 for the 32GB variant
  • iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will launch in India on October 7

In an attempt to expand the online availability of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones in India, Apple has partnered with e-commerce website Flipkart. For those unaware, until recently, Apple had Infibeam as its only authorised online reseller.

 

The new tie-up with Flipkart will mean the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be available at the official launch price at the online retailer. The biggest advantage for Flipkart with the partnership will be that it can source the new iPhones from Apple directly, instead of Apple partners. Other retailers such as Snapdeal, Amazon India, and Paytm among others sell the units which they source from Apple partners. These units still carry Apple warranty, so for end users this is unlikely to be a big change. The Flipkart listing for upcoming iPhone 7 series clearly lists other older iPhone models as well, so the partnership is for more than just the newest iPhone units.

Apple has already revealed the prices in India for the entire iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus lineup. The iPhone 7 will start at Rs. 60,000 for the 32GB variant. The iPhone 7 Plus will start at Rs. 72,000 for the same storage capacity. The 128GB and 256GB variants of the iPhone 7 will be priced at Rs. 70,000 and Rs. 80,000 respectively, while the iPhone 7 Plus will priced at Rs. 82,000 and Rs. 92,000 for the same storage capacities.

As announced previously, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be going on sale in the country from October 7.

The new iPhone 7 series sports a refreshed design and the rear antenna bands aren’t as prominent as before. Both the phones feature brand new home button that includes force-sensitive technology and uses Taptic vibrations instead of physical tap. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus also come with IP67 water and dust resistance.

Ahead of the launch of new iPhones, Apple slashed the prices for iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE. With the price revision, the 32GB models of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available at Rs. 50,000 and Rs. 60,000 respectively. The iPhone SE, on the other hand, will now come at Rs. 44,000 for the 64GB model.
