Another official Xiaomi Mi 9 photo surfaces. Price Bangladesh info and camera setup details as well

Xiaomi has made sort of a habit of high-ranking employee teasers for its upcoming phones over the past few weeks. And while the social “campaign” for the Mi 9 flagship comes nowhere near the fruit-themed video series that preceded the Redmi Note 7 launch, company CEO Lei Jun did already publish a few official images of the phone.

In a similar development, Lin Bin – Xiaomi president and co-founder posted what he says is an actual device photo as well. Unfortunately, it is just the one still, but it does show off a different color option for the upcoming Mi 9. One that can probably be best described as a deep gray. Although, naturally, the final naming will come courtesy of Xiaomi during the launch event.

Speaking of which, the latter is already scheduled for February 20. So, the wait is almost over and we’ll get to see whether the smooth curves on the back of the Mi 9 really do look as stylish as photos and renders make them out to be. One thing that we will note is that despite their apparent openness with Mi 9 teasers, Xiaomi employees are yet to show an image of the front of the phone. Likely in an attempt to keep at least a little sense of mystery alive, since the question of a notch on the front of the phone used to be a highly-debated one.

That being said, few things actually remain unknown regarding the Mi 9. A set of high-quality hands-on photos already showcased most angles of the device. Including the “tear drop” style display notch. While definitely a plus, the small size of the notch likely means the Mi 9 won’t feature any advanced 3D face-scanning hardware, like the one introduced on the Mi 8 Pro.

The Mi 9 will, however, come sporting a triple camera setup – 48 MP Sony IMX 586 + 12MP Telephoto + 16MP Wide-Angle, which we already have a few pretty impressive sample photosfrom. Lei Jun previously suggested the flagship will have faster charging than the Redmi Note 7’s 18W, so we expect to see 27W, if the listing from 3C is correct. Other expected specs are Snapdragon 855 chipset with the X24 modem. RAM+storage would start from 6/64GB and go up from there to 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB.

Fujifilm X-T30 is a 75,700 TK mirrorless camera with most of X-T3’s important bits

Fujifilm has launched the X-T30, a new mirrorless interchangeable lens camera that is the successor to the X-T20.

The claim to fame for this new model is that it features the same 26.1 megapixel Fujifilm X-Trans CMOS sensor found on the X-T3 along with the same quad-core X-Processor 4. This means you can largely expect the same excellent image quality found on the X-T3.

The X-T30 offers a hybrid AF system with 425 AF points and improved face detection. The camera also includes eye detection AF. The focusing system is actually a bit better than on the X-T3 but these improvements will be coming over to the X-T3 via a firmware upgrade.

Like the X-T3, the X-T30 has fairly capable video features, including 4K 30 8-bit 4:2:0 internal recording and 10-bit 4:2:2 external recording via HDMI. It can’t quite do the 4K 60 and 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording like the X-T3, however, and also lacks the second SD card slot.

The X-T30 has a 2.36M dot OLED EVF and 3-inch, 1.04M dot tilting LCD touchscreen. The camera has microphone jack but no headphone jack. You can, however, get audio out through the USB-C connector using an adapter sold separately. There’s also support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Oppo R17 now available in BD, exclusively on Freebestbd

Oppo has started selling the R17 in BD. The phone is priced at BDT 34,990 ($500) and will be available exclusively online on Freebestbd

The R17 is a mid-range smartphone from Oppo. It has a 6.4-inch, 2340×1080 resolution OLED display with a built-in fingerprint sensor. It has a teardrop notch design with a thin chin. This is basically the same display as that on the OnePlus 6T.

The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 with an octa-core CPU (2x 2.0GHz Kryo 360 Gold + 6x 1.7GHz Kryo 360 Silver) and Adreno 615 GPU. It also has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

The R17 has a dual camera on the back with a 16MP f1.7 primary and 5MP f2.4 depth sensor. On the front is a 24MP f2.0 camera.

The phone has a 3500mAh battery with Oppo’s VOOC charging. The phone runs on Oppo’s ColorOS 5.2 based on Android 8.1.

The Oppo R17 will be available in two colors, Ambient Blue and Neon Purple.

Xiaomi starts selling new Mi Car Charger Basic in BD

Xiaomi has started selling a cheaper version of its Mi Car Charger, aptly called the Mi Car Charger Basic. This new model is priced at BDT 449 ($6) and is available on Mi.com.

The new Mi Car Charger Basic has two USB output ports. One of them supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, with 5V/3A, 9V/2A, and 12V/1.5A outputs with the second port supporting only 5V/1A output. The entire unit is made out of plastic.

In comparison, the standard Mi Car Charger supports Quick Charge from both its USB ports, although each can do 5V/2.4A and you can have max 3.6A coming out of both ports simultaneously. This model is also crafted out of aluminum and costs BDT 699 ($10).

The price difference isn’t huge, however, if you only have one QC compatible device and don’t care a lot about aesthetics then you can save a few bucks and go with the cheaper model.
