on

The company also showed off the new Mag Safe technology for its wireless charging system, Ceramic Shield screen protection and League of Legends: Wild Rift running on the iPhone.

Another year, another iPhone. (Did I say that last year?) This is the iPhone’s last year of tweendom before it hits teenhood: Apple announced its four-model iPhone 12 line on Tuesday, the first major revamp of the iPhone’s design since 2017’s iPhone X, which introduced face unlocking and better screen technology. This year they sport an array of colors, more models and 5G wireless support across the lineup. In addition to the Home Pod Mini smart speaker, we were treated to the Mag Safe wireless charging system for the iPhone and a stealth release of the $50 Beats Flex wireless headphones.

Here’s how you order iPhone 12, Mini, Pro and Pro Max models, on different days and at different prices.

Apple’s late to the 5G party (if you can call it “late” when the party’s just started), and incorporating the new wireless tech poses potential problems for Apple, but it could still be a big win for the company and carriers. And experts are already worrying about the new design’s affect on repairability, given that Apple already ranks pretty low on that score.

Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg came out to talk about the iPhone on its 5G Ultra Wideband network and its expansion plans, including turning on its nationwide 5G network. The iPhone 12 has a custom antenna design and, according to Apple, a boatload of testing. All models support mm Wave 5G, at least in the US.

Apple updated its wireless charging with Mag Safe for iPhone, a new charging coil design with a magnet that allows any compatible accessory — such as cases and other docks — to snap onto the back.

Thinner, smaller and lighter, the iPhone 12 incorporates the new OLED Super Retina XDR display, boasting 460 ppi pixel density and Dolby Vision HDR support. It has a new Ceramic Shield protection layer on the screen as well. It uses the A14 Bionic, the same chip that’s in the new iPad Air with improved AI processing. It’s got a new camera, of course, a dual setup with an f2.4 ultrawide camera and f1.6 wide, Night Mode available on all cameras and night time lapse. It starts at $799 in the US, £799 in the UK and AU$1,349 in Australia.

The Pro Max has a new sensor on its third telephoto camera with sensor shift image stabilization, which is popular in regular cameras.

Best economic mobile phones for January 2021

Nowadays mobile phones are used for several purposes. Some of them are important and some of them for time pass.

What are the main use of mobile phones?

  1. Make calls
  2. Send Messages
  3. Surf Websites
  4. Capture your best moments
  5. Enter into online and offline applications.

To fulfill this, and average person only need a phone with price around 10,000 RS. Selecting a phone with maximum features is a himalayan task for few. Here are my list of budget phones for the month of January 2021.

5. Realme C15 3GB 32 GB

Realme C15 only have 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. You might be wondering why this phone entered into my top 5 budget phone list for the new decade.

Following are key elements making the Realme C15 in my favorite list.

  • 6.52 inch HD Display
  • 13MP AI Quad Camera
  • 6000 mAh battery

Realme C15 can be preferred for those who are looking for a good photography experience and huge battery backup.

4. Redmi 9 Prime 4GB 64GB

Redmi 9 Prime outperformed Realme C15 with its 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

Other few features are

  • A descent 5020 mAh battery
  • 6.53 full HD Display
  • AI Quad Camera

3. Oppo A5 2020 3GB 64GB

Oppo A5 beaten Redmi 9 Prime with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa core processor. I personally like Qualcomm processors over MediaTek.

Key other features include

  • 64 GB internal memory
  • Snapdragon 665 Octa Core Processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

2. Samsung Galaxy M11 3GB 32 GB

Even though the Galaxy M11 comes with 3GB RAM 32GB internal memory, the position of the selfi Camera given rank 2 in my list. Most of the under 10K range Smartphones comes with water drop Camera. Hence the punch hole Camera in the Galaxy M11 making it favorable for many. Moreover Samsung has more brand value than the other phones in the list. At least from my point for view. There is no need for an argument at this time.

Here are some of the other key features

  • Expandable memory support upto 512GB
  • Qualcomm octa core processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

1. Redmi 9 4GB 128 GB

While seeing the heading itself you might have noticed the heavy internal memory. Getting a Smartphone with 128GB under 10K is the only reason making Redmi 9 in the top of my list. 4GB RAM and 128GB internal memory gives enough room  for us store and capture whatever we wants.

Other Key features are

  • 5000 mAh battery
  • 6.53 HD display

Note: I have checked our main online ecommerce websites prior to writing this article. There might be small variations in the price when you check the price online. Sellers keep changing in Flipkart and Amazon. I’m sure that these phones can be purchased within 10000RS. If you see the price above 10000RS, please visit the site on a later point so that the seller with less price shows again.
