Xiamoi is working of a new model of Mi that is aimed at young and fashionable people. Mi CC is the latest brand from Xiaomi unveiled on Friday. The company said it stands for camera plus camera in reference to its dual-camera feature but apparently it also refer to cool, colorful, and creative. The end goal of this new phone is to attract the global young mobile consumer.
The company has developed beautiful piece of hardware so far, for the people who care about the looks as well as performance of the smartphones. To date, Xiaomi has launched phones as good as their competition but at a fraction of cost. So far, the company was focusing on high-tech devices to compete with giants in the mobile industry but the focus has shifted to entire new audience who prefer aesthetics over performance. Since Xiaomi has a history of innovative devices with low price tag, the latest Mi CC is one to watch for. Xaimoi has recently bought a smartphone app development business owned by Meitu.
Meitu app has been sold just over 3.5 million times after getting into the smartphone business since 2013. Those numbers were enough to attract Xiaomi's interest in the business. Meitu has a similar positive impression on the fashionable young audience and has gain huge financial success from this small segment of the industry. Xiaomi hasn't said anything about its design or other specification but called it different. "Mi CC is created by one of the youngest product teams in Xiaomi, among which half are art majors and are dedicated to creating a trendy design for young consumers," it wrote in an announcement.

Are you one of the mobile phone users who love to play video games when feeling bored? Although many people play video games on their smartphones, not many companies consider it a mainstream rend. Asus is one of a few companies that design high-end smartphones specifically for gaming. A lot of premium phones are advertised as gaming phones because of their high-powered processor, display design, and they do run games relatively well. However, the Asus ROG phone series is the best when it comes to gaming phone.
The ROG phone and ROG phone 2 were great but the company didn't focus too much on the design before, but what we have now is a relatively much better-designed version of the gamer aesthetic and slick looking phone. The front face is plain black, with two stereo speakers above and below the display, but there is also a 3.5mm audio jack. The front camera is in one corner of the screen which means you get a seamless user experience while playing video games or watching videos on the phone.
The rear side of the phone has a large centered ROG logo that lights up with different colors when Xcode is activated. A small transparent panel shows off the phone's elaborate cooling system and tiny vent to make it cool while playing games. Although, there is only one drawback of having such a glossy background. The phone slides around on most surfaces and leaves fingerprint marks on the cover. The company has used corning Gorilla Glass 6 on the front and Gorilla Glass 3 on the rear side.
The phone is slightly heavy and not for everyone. The main reason for its weight is due to the 6,000mAh battery and cooling system. This isn't a phone for you if you prefer slim sleek designs. Asus has gone with a 6.59-inch 1080x2340 screen, and its biggest advantage is an unprecedented 144Hz refresh rate. You can buy the ROG Phone 3 starting in early August with either 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for Rs. 49,999, or 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for Rs. 57,999. In other countries, Asus will offer a staggering 16GB / 512GB option as well.
ROG phone 3 features a 64-megapixel primary camera with a Sony sensor and f/1.8 aperture. The second camera is a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle one, while the third one is a 5-megapixel macro camera. The front camera features a 24-megapixel f/2.0 selfie camera.
