LG G6 Unboxing

Published

LG’s G6 is a fantastic phone inside and out, but did you know not all countries are getting the exact same features? Our unboxing video covers these differences and more.

In a strange act of region locking, features like wireless charging, the amount of built-in storage, and audio capabilities are specific to certain markets. Not all countries are  getting headphones bundled in the package, either.

It’s a confusing issue, but we’re here to set the facts straight. Watch our unboxing of an unlocked US retail version below to learn the differences, and see just how gorgeous the Platinum color really is!

Better late to the party than never

The iPhone 14 Plus may have come a little bit late in the party, but the new ‘Plus’ iPhone might actually be your best bet.

To cut the story short, it is iPhone 14’s bigger brother.

Apart from a bigger display, it also has the longest battery life in an iPhone ever.

But would you choose it over the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro Max?

And are you willing to trade-off the faster ProMotion display, Dynamic Island, and better cameras for a more “affordable” iPhone?

Watch our unboxing and hands-on of the iPhone 14 Plus to know more.

Infinix launches first smartphones with 180W charging, 60MP selfie cam

Introducing the ZERO ULTRA and ZERO 20

Published

The smartphone business is a game of numbers. Which brand can pack in the most megapixels, the largest battery, or the fastest charging? While the industry at large is as vicious as a pack of wolves, Infinix is making quite a case for the numbers game. Today, the company has debuted two new devices in the ZERO lineup. Both of which come with some of the industry’s firsts.

Infinix ZERO ULTRA

First up, the Infinix ZERO ULTRA isn’t shy about what makes it a crazy smartphone to own. Armed with the world’s first 180W Thunder Charge, the smartphone’s 4500mAh battery can reportedly fill up from empty in just 12 minutes. The company previously announced the blazingly fast charging standard earlier this year. Now, it’s making their way to everyone’s hands.

Besides the beast of a battery, the ZERO ULTRA sports the MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset, up to 13GB of RAM (built-in 8GB of RAM plus 5GB via Extended RAM), and 256GB of internal storage. For its display, the phone comes with a 6.8-inch AMOLED screen, putting out 2400×1080 resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. The form factor glimmers with a 71° waterfall screen design.

Behind everything, the ZERO ULTRA comes with a huge 200-megapixel camera plus a 12-megapixel AI camera. In front, it comes with a sizable 32-megapixel selfie shooter and an 8-megapixel AI camera.

It comes pre-installed with Android 12, laid over with XOS 12. It will also have dual nano SIM capabilities and 5G connectivity.

Infinix ZERO 20

The ULTRA isn’t the only smartphone with an exclusive spec to its name. Complementing the first flagship, Infinix has also launched the ZERO 20, one of the first in the industry to come out with a 60-megapixel selfie shooter.

Built for a passion on photography and vlogging, the ZERO 20’s 60-megapixel selfie camera comes with a 0.61μm pixel size and dual OIS+EIS stabilization. It also has a Super Night Selfie Mode for brilliant selfies even in low light conditions. On the flip side, the ZERO 20’s 108-megapixel rear camera isn’t too shabby either. Besides the main camera, it comes with a pair of other sensors: a 13-megapixel and a 2-megapixel one.

Underneath, the smartphone sports a MediaTek Helio G99 chipset, up to 13GB of RAM (using the same configuration as the ZERO ULTRA), and 256GB of internal storage (expandable via a microSD slot). It comes with a 6.7-inch AMOLED FHD+ screen with 90Hz refresh rate.

It has dual nano SIM capabilities and up to 4G connectivity. Plus, it will have a headphone jack. Powering everything, the ZERO 20 comes with a 4500mAh battery capable of 45W Super Charge (which can fill an empty battery to 75 percent in just 30 minutes).

Price and availability

Coming in Coslight Silver and Genesis Noir, the Infinix ZERO ULTRA will sell for around US$ 520. Additionally, while supplies last, customers will receive a lottery ticket for a chance to win a space themed NFT.

Meanwhile, coming in Space Gray, Glitter Gold, and Green Fantasy, the Infinix ZERO 20 will sell for around US$ 270.
