Tesco was keen to mark the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 with as much bang as possible and went all out sending a unit into space. Tied to a special space balloon, the smartphone is accompanied by a trio of GoPro cameras monitoring its every move.
Launched from an undisclosed location within UK's Peak District national park, the balloon soared 32.5km to the edge of space surviving 160km/h winds and temperatures as low as -57 degrees Celsius.
Watch the Live Stream below for the S6 Launch starting tomorrow at 11am UK time.
There'ss an element of competition to the whole event, and the person who tweets "DROP" and "#S6EdgeOfSpace" at the exact moment the balloon bursts will WIN a brand New Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, in Tesco's wording. Now, apparently, a different device will need to be shipped to the lucky winner, as we don't see this one making it back to planet Earth in one piece.
Apple iPhone 12 mini may seem the smallest one in the iPhone 12 series but you can't underestimate its power. The mini is a fantastic little device that shouldn't be ignored. it is lightweight, features a compact design, has a stunning display, great cameras that can capture DSLR-like images, and powerful processors are all big. The iPhone 12 series comes in four models: the iPhone 12, the 12 Pro, the Pro Max, and this, the iPhone 12 mini. One of the major differences between these four mobile phones is their physical size.
The iPhone 12 mini is the smallest and perhaps the cute one for some people. It features an all-screen front display, unlike the iPhone SE which also happens to be small. With most smartphones getting bigger and bigger for quite some time now, Apple took a completely different route. It might be called mini but there isn't anything mini about this phone when it comes to performance, speed, and amazing camera. It is the device that you would love to hold in one hand and make you appreciate small things in your life. The iPhone 12 mini has a black, white, blue, green, and red finish with 131.5 x 64.2 x 7.4mm / Weight: 135g. The phone has IP68 water and dust resistance. The phone features an identical design to the largest iPhone 12 - just in a small size.
The phone has a 5.4-inch, Super Retina XDR, 1200nits, 60Hz display refresh rate with 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution (476ppi), and HDR, True Tone, Haptic Touch. Apple TouchID device has a 4.7-inch display screen, while the iPhone 12 mini has a 5.4-inch display, incredibly large enough for a small device. The iPhone 12 mini has similar camera specs as you will find on iPhone 12, with 12MP being a primary camera.
It is the same two wide-angle lenses and a 12Mp ultra-wide lens that you will find on iPhone 12 Pro, but the pro model has also a third telephoto zoom lens, allowing for 2x optical zoom. There is also Night mode on the front and rear camera with Deep Fusion and TrueDepth technologies that allows amazing selfies even at night. In good conditions, you can take amazing shots with iPhone 12 mini.
