Xiaomi has announced that it will be launching two new phones in China on December 7 – Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in China. Both are expected to have 18:9 virtually borderless displays, which Xiaomi calls “full screen.” Although Xiaomi has not revealed any details with its announcement poster, the TENNA lists of the devices that should be Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus talk about 5.7-inch HD+ displays, Snapdragon 450 (Redmi 5) and Snapdragon 625/630 (Redmi 5 Plus), and up to three RAM and storage variants.

The Redmi 5 will likely be 2GB/16GB, 3GB/32GB, and 4GB/64GB for RAM and storage, respectively. Both new Redmi devices are expected to have a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera and will run MIUI 9 based on Android 7.1.2. The Redmi 5 Plus probably doesn’t have a bigger screen, just an improved chipset and a bigger battery (4000 mAh vs. 3200 mAh). A report claims that the Redmi 5 will be priced at CNY 1,399 (approximately Rs. 13,600), but we won’t have to wait long to find out.

Samsung’s graphene ball technology can solve battery problems. Samsung researchers have developed a new battery technology they call “graphene ball” that enables 45 percent greater battery capacity and five times faster charging speeds. Graphene is an allotrope of carbon and has long been considered an alternative to silicon for processors, batteries, and other items. With the new technology, Samsung says that, in theory, batteries should only take 12 minutes to charge.

I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
