The 108MP-camera equipped Xiaomi Mi Note 10 will officially be available in the Philippines.

It’s the world’s first 108MP camera on a smartphone but that’s not the only camera on this device. In fact, it has five. Joining the main camera is the 12MP with 2X zoom mostly for aiding portrait photos, another 5MP with 5X optical zoom and 10X hybrid zoom. The remaining two cameras are a 20MP ultra wide angle lens and a 2MP macro lens.

Inside, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC with a 5260mAh battery that supports 30W fast-charging.

The front and back of the device are covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The screen features a 6.47-inch 3D curved AMOLED display. Xiaomi says this helps with gripping the phone. Also in front is a 32MP AI camera.

Pricing and availability

The Mi Note 10 6GB+128GB will be available at Php 25,990 starting December 6 in Mi Authorized Stores and Mi Zones, and December 12 on Lazada. It will come in three colors — Midnight Black, Glacier White, and Aurora Green.

Editor’s Note: As of January 13, 2020, the Mi Note 10’s price dropped to PhP 25,490

OnePlus 8T pricing and availability in the Philippines

The latest from OnePlus is here!

OnePlus 8T

Well, that was fast. Digital Walker — the official distributor of OnePlus in the Philippines — is finally selling the recently launched OnePlus 8T in the country.

The official price of the OnePlus 8T in the country is PhP 29,990. Digital Walker is actually doing its buyers a favor since that price is only US$ 617 when converted. In the US, it is much expensive at US$ 749. However, the US variant comes with a 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

Digital Walker is only selling an 8GB + 128GB variant in the country for the meantime though. It is unclear if a higher-end variant will come in the future. Also, it is important to note that only the Luna Silver color option is available in the meantime.

Buyers must head over to Digital Walker’s official online store — HomeOffice — to purchase one. Alternatively, they can click to this link to take them straight to the product page. Due to the supply restrictions, OnePlus 8T is limited in stock, and delivery in the Philippines may occur later in November.

Apple’s MagSafe charger works on Samsung and Google phones

Specifically the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Pixel 5

Published

on

This month, Apple announced the return of the wireless MagSafe system. This time around, the wireless charging solution powers the iPhone 12 series with a convenient snap-to-place method. Of course, as with most of Apple’s products, you don’t really expect it to work with non-Apple device. Fortunately, the historical rule of thumb is wrong. Apparently, Apple’s MagSafe charger works on Samsung and Google phones.

As tested by Max Weinbach, the wireless charger can snap and work on the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Further, YouTuber Aaron Zollo tested the charger on the recently announced Google Pixel 5. Unfortunately, neither test revealed how well the charger does with the devices. However, Weinbach commented that it took some effort to dislodge the charger from the Galaxy Z Fold 2.

Of course, it’s no surprise that the MagSafe charger will work on other Qi-based devices. However, it’s a surprise that Apple’s proprietary accessories are working on non-Apple devices.

Still, if you need an extra wireless charger, at least Apple’s charger can work on your device. That is, if you own both an Apple and Android device.

Now, the only remaining question is whether or not Apple’s other MagSafe accessories will work on non-Apple devices. The other accessories — like an attachable wallet — will come out later this year.
