Xiaomi Poco F5 5G will launch in India on April 6th

Xiaomi already brought the Poco X5 to India a few days ago. According to a new report, the Xiaomi Poco F5 5G could follow next, namely on April 6th. There is still no official statement from Xiaomi itself about the Poco F5 5G. According to the rumors so far, it is a renamed Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Turbo. According to a teaser from yesterday, it will be powered by the newly announced Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset.

The Redmi Note 12 Turbo is expected to be based on a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with FullHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The fingerprint sensor should be installed under the display instead of on the side as before. The premium feature would be a first for the Redmi Note 12 series.

Other alleged specs of the Redmi Note 12 Turbo include a 5,500mAh battery with 67W charging and a triple camera setup on the rear. In addition to a 50 megapixel main camera, there should also be an 8 megapixel ultra wide and a 2 megapixel macro camera on board. All of these specs would fit the upper mid-range Poco F5 series pretty well.


Samsung Galaxy Watch5 series gets ECG and blood pressure measurement

Samsung has announced that the Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro now officially measure blood pressure and ECGs after passing a new certification. However, there are two catches. One is a firmware update, so not very dramatic. The other is that the certification is only valid for the Philippines for the time being. The features are not yet available in other countries.

In addition, the ECG and blood pressure measurements only work with a paired Samsung smartphone. The latter also handles the initial setup in the Samsung Health Monitor app. In addition, you have to calibrate the Galaxy smartwatches once with a real blood pressure monitor.

Once the initial reading is synced with the Health Monitor app, you can measure your blood pressure via the Galaxy Watch5 series’ BioActive sensor. The two side buttons on the housing serve as electrodes.

The Huawei Mate X3 is scheduled to be unveiled in China on March 23 at 2:30 p.m. local time. The company hasn’t revealed much about the foldable yet. Ross Young, CEO of DSCC, has now revealed some details about the Mate X3 display.

According to Young, the Huawei Mate X3 will feature a 7.85-inch foldable display, which is 0.15 inches smaller than the Mate X2’s foldable screen. The diagonal of the cover display remains the same at 6.45 inches. Ross also claimed that the Mate X3 will be Huawei’s first smartphone to use ultra-thin glass (UTG). BOE will supply the UTG panels.
