10 Fastest Cars in the World – 2019

fastest cars 2019

The 10 fastest cars in the world is always a fun list to compile, because the common denominator of each entry is speed, and speed also happens to be the coolest and most exciting force a moving object can produce. Right now, the car industry is amidst a speed renaissance of sorts, in which new technologies are either replacing old technologies or finding ways to coexist with them. A perfect example of this is the power unit in the Mercedes-AMG Project One, which borrows a compact six-cylinder engine and amplifies it beyond belief with electric motors and hybrid power systems. As we near the year 2020, the automotive landscape will be all about finding speed with new propulsion systems and energy management.

To earn a spot on this list of the fastest cars in the world, the speed demons had to be 2018 year models or newer, currently be in production, and be street legal. Since we couldn’t measure the tops speeds ourselves, we only took into consideration manufacturer-claimed speed figures and not other measurements gathered by publications, owners, or various dubious Reddit forums.

This year’s list has the usual high-priced suspects: Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari, McLaren. But we’ve also got some pleasant surprises and lesser-known contenders that may shock you with their high level of performance right out of the box—and their more affordable price tags.

Here are the ten fastest production cars in the world you can buy right now.

10 – Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye

Top Speed : 203 MPH

The Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye was recently introduced as the ultimate incarnation of Dodge’s famous Challenger Hellcat, but now it’s powered by the same maniacal Hemi engine that summons to life the sinister Dodge Demon. Under the throwback “dual-snorkel” hood lies a 6.4-liter supercharged V-8 that cranks out 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque and rockets this 4,500-pound Detroit brawler from zero to 60 in just 3.4 seconds. Top speed: 203 mph. In order to break the 200-mph barrier, this rear-wheel-drive coupe uses the largest factory supercharger of any production car—2.7 liters versus 2.4 liters, and 14.5 psi of boost pressure that allows both dual-stage fuel pumps to take full advantage of the increased 6,500 rpm limit. And speaking of fuel, the Redeye’s high-output V-8 gulps 1.43 gallons of fuel per minute at full throttle, which is enough to drain the fuel tank in little less than 11 minutes.

9 – 2019 Bentley Continental GT

Top Speed : 207 MPH

Don’t let the Continental GT’s magnificently supple design fool you: Bentley has endowed its sleek coupe with serious muscle. After two generations of soft and often understated mega-luxury coupes, the third-generation Continental GT ups the ante with a zero-to-60 time of just 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 207 miles per hour. That’s 0.2 seconds quicker to 60, and four miles per hour faster overall than the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye—despite weighing 447 pounds more. The new W-12 TSI engine is an enhanced variant of the 6.0-liter block that was originally designed for the Bentayga, the Crewe-based brand’s first SUV, although this one produces a robust 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque feeding all four wheels courtesy of a dual-clutch eight-speed transmission.

8 – McLaren Senna

Top Speed : 208 MPH

The name Senna strikes a powerful chord among motor racing aficionados, and McLaren aimed to honor the late great Brazilian and the race team’s many Formula 1 victories with its newest track-focused machine. The McLaren Senna shatters expectations with a top speed of 208 mph. Throughout the late ’80s and ’90s, Ayrton Senna was a ruthless racer and a controversial overtaker, but he was also a globally recognized humanitarian and a man with a nearly religious following in Brazil. Senna was a complex man, and this McLaren’s intricacies reflect that: The body is made entirely of carbon fiber, and its 67-piece, spaceship-like aero kit takes more than 1,000 hours to assemble by hand. The $1 million supercar delivers a savage driving experience and neck-breaking speed courtesy of its 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine and 789 horsepower, which can propel this ultra-exclusive Brit from zero to 60 in a blinding 2.7 seconds.

7 – Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Top Speed : 211 MPH

Dubbed “the widowmaker” by generations of Porsche purists, the rear-wheel-drive GT2 RS is a pinnacle of the 911 lineup as well as the fastest and most capable Porsche outside of the now-defunct 918 Spyder. Lift the enormous carbon fiber rear wing to expose the hand-assembled 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged six-cylinder boxer, from which the deranged folks at Stuttgart have managed to extract 700 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. To put that into perspective, that “small” boxer delivers 184.21 horsepower per liter while only having to carry 3,241 pounds, compared to the 104 horsepower per cylinder of the 4,497-pound 2019 Bentley Continental GT. Add a lightning-quick seven-speed dual-clutch transmission on top of all that mechanical wizardry and the result is a zero to 60 time of just 2.7 seconds (identical to that of the McLaren Senna), and a top track speed of 211 miles per hour.

6 – Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

Top Speed : 211 MPH

The new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is a sexy new Brit that can reach a top speed of 211 miles per hour and rocket from zero to 60 in 3.2 seconds and, after that, all the way to 100 in 6.4 seconds. That sort of speed is thanks to the 715 horses found in the 5.2-litre, twin-turbo V-12 powerhouse under the Superleggera’s chiseled hood. In fact, only three other Aston Martins have reached the 700 club: the $3 million Aston Martin Valkyrie, the limited-edition One-77, and the track-only Vulcan. At a starting price of $304,995 in the United States before optional equipment, the DBS Superleggera doesn’t offer the most bang for the AM buck, but it’s easily the most stunning vehicle of this year’s bunch.

5 – Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Top Speed : 212 MPH

The 212-mph Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 continues the American tradition of building world-class performers at just a fraction of the cost of the Europeans. The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is built on a base model that starts at just $30,000; similarly, the entry-level variant of the $121,000 Chevy Corvette ZR1 Coupe starts less than $60,000. So what do you get for an additional $61,000? It turns out a whole lot, but most importantly a 6.2-liter supercharged American V-8 that produces an astonishing 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque. Those figures are enough to lap the Virginia International Raceway 1.3 seconds faster than the Ford GT, which beats the ZR1 in terms of top speed by four miles per hour. Lucky ZR1 owners can choose from two different aero settings depending on their track-day needs or personal preference. No wonder ‘Vette aficionados refer to it as “The King.”

4 – Ford GT

Top Speed : 216 MPH

Unlike the two other Americans on this list, the Ford GT didn’t get the Blue Collar memo. As a result, this low-to-the-ground supercar starts at an eye-watering $450,000, but its 216-mph top speed and dazzling eye candy profile almost justify the hefty price. Inspired by one of Le Mans’ most famous racers, the Ford GT is a perfect example of when a major company like the Blue Oval puts its brightest minds to work. The project was begun but an unofficial (and initially unsanctioned) team of devoted Ford designers, engineers, and aerodynamicists, who created a car that’s truly stunning to behold—whether it’s speeding past or standing still. Interestingly enough, the GT is powered by a variant of Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that’s found in the Ford F-150 pickup truck and other utilitarian vehicles (and, for a time, in Chip Ganassi’s IMSA cars). But only the GT’s engine variant can summon 647 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to go from zero to 60 in just three seconds.

3 – Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

Top Speed : 217 MPH

The new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ adopts the Italian automaker’s famous “Jota” moniker, which adds another layer of hardcore-ness to the already racy SV trim by calling on the spirit of the powerful Miura P400 Jota from the ’70s, which was designed to meet the FIA’s “J” class rulebook. This new Raging Bull comes to life via a 6.5-liter, 48-valve V-12 that carries 4.42 pounds with each of its 759 horses. As a result, the SVJ can deliver a zero to 60 time of 2.8 and reach a maximum speed of 217 miles per hour. However, while Lamborghini’s ALA 2.0 active aerodynamics system can maximize cornering grip and allow the SVJ to dance through all of the Nurburgring’s tricky corners and set a record time of 6:44.97 minutes, the massive rear wing most likely robbed it of a few miles per hour at the top end of the spectrum, making us wonder how fast this bull could really go if it were a tiny bit slipperier.

2 – Mercedes-AMG Project One

Top Speed : 217 MPH

It’s not common for an automaker to release estimated performance figures, but in the case of Mercedes-AMG, they’ve simply stated that its new hypercar, the Project One, can reach a maximum speed of “at least” 217 miles per hour. Could it reach 220, 225 or maybe even 230? Given the Formula 1-derived hybrid power unit it’s not completely far-fetched, but that’d simply be speculation. F1 star Lewis Hamilton assisted in the development of the Project One and even drove the first model shown to the world’s media at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September 2017. The rear-engine, all-wheel-drive rocketship is powered by a 1.6-liter V-6 gasoline engine that’s assisted by a plug-in hybrid system and four electric motors, which, according to the automaker, can propel the nearly $3-million Silver Arrow from zero to 112 mph in just six seconds.

1. Bugatti Chiron Sport

Top Speed : 261 MPH

The Chiron Sport’s top speed of 261 miles per hour quite literally overwhelms every machine listed here, and that’s exactly what Bugatti set off to accomplish with its ferocious yet luxurious land missile. The Chiron Sport is powered by the same 1,479-horsepower [ED. NOTE: Whenever I read that stat, I lol], 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine as the “regular” Chiron, but it weighs 40 pounds less and is therefore just a tad faster. How did Bugatti shave those 40 pounds? Carbon fiber windshield wiper arms, a carbon fiber intercooler, and lighter suspension components and wheels. How much faster is it? We don’t know, because Bugatti hasn’t gotten around to test it, since both the Chiron and Chiron Sport are electronically limited to 261 miles per hour in ‘Top Speed’ mode. However, Bugatti claims that the Chiron Sport is a whopping five seconds faster around the Nardo mega-oval, which is doubly impressive considering the performance gains have been made purely on weight reduction. (For the record, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sports set the production-car top-speed record of 268 miles per hour back in 2010.)

International Songs That Were Shot In India And Became An Instant Hit

669

Whenever we want to take inspiration, weather it’s a fashion trend, music, destination or the Kardashians, we always look up to the West and Hollywood. They give us all the possible goals. In fact, the whole paparazzi culture also came from the west. They have given us or rather created jobs in India that I never thought would have existed. But the ugly truth is they have become a part of us and is also our guilty pleasure.

But Western artists clearly think otherwise. They enjoy the traditional India which includes the stunning festivals, fervour and colourful costumes. Infact, many have even shot their international music videos here.

So here’s taking a look at 11 fun music videos that were shot here and went onto become an instant hit.Jai Wolf – Indian Summer

Jai Wolf – Indian Summer

In 2015, Jai Wolf released his debut single “Indian Summer”  and it went onto become a super hot number. The video has been shots in various parts of India.

Indian Summer saw great commercial success, hitting #1 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart, #2 on iTunes’ Electronic Chart, and #31 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic song’s chart.  That’s not all, the track also earned a spot on Triple J 2015 Hottest 100 in Australia.

Coldplay – Hymn For The Weekend

This is by far the latest international song to be shot in India. Covering Holi, stunning forts, our national bird and the colourful taxis, we gave a beautiful rich look to the video. The song went onto achieve close to 110 million views.

But this is not the only highlight of the video. Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor also featured in the music video, which is a first for an Indian celebrity. Although a tiny role, we were elated to see her in a tribal outfit looking royal as always.

Coldplay also managed to feature Beyonce who is seen on a television box which says Mariya Mata in Hindi. This is a first international video to capture so many emotions, celebrities and show India in just the right culture and light.

Iggy Azalea – Bounce

The song has a festive feel where Iggy Azalea can be seen nailing the Indian bridal avatar. In one of her earlier interviews, Azalea mentioned she wanted the track to showcase a fun side to her artistry and offset the seriousness of her previous single “Work”.

In the track, she has nicely clubbed the western EDM and hip hop with the eastern music tabla and sarangi instruments

Major Lazor – Lean On

The music video for Lean On was filmed in ND Studios, Karjat (India) and Kaul Heritage City, Vasai in Maharashtra. We all hummed the song the minute it released and made it the hit song of 2015.

Lean On was a critical and commercial success, peaking at number four on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and at number two on the UK Singles Chart.

The Beatles – Across The Universe

hollywood

Everyone knows the amount of times, The Beatles visited India. For many who don’t know, there is a cafe also by their name in Rishikesh. They loved our country and the traditional touch it provided to their songs and videos.

One of their early songs, Across The Universe was heavily influenced by Jai Guru Deva. In his 1970 interview with Rolling Stone, Lennon referred to the song as perhaps the best, most poetic lyric he ever wrote: “It’s one of the best lyrics I’ve written. In fact, it could be the best. It’s good poetry, or whatever you call it, without chewin’ it. See, the ones I like are the ones that stand as words, without melody. They don’t have to have any melody, like a poem, you can read them.”

Calvin Harris – Let It Go

You have to see the video to believe it. It’s fun, frivolous and ammature and despite all of this, the song received a nomination for Best Dance Recording at the 55th Grammy Awards held in February 2013.

That’s right, the music video shows different locations of India, from the airport, local kids playing, boarding an Indian cab to the colours, it has all this and much more

Skindred – Kill The Power

A ragga metal number, the band chose India as a location to shoot their music video. Kill The Power is aimed at people who are sick of being the underdog, and wanna step up and destroy all those who oppress and hold them down. It’s pretty much how our country got our freedom back and has been living life each day.

Mumford & Sons – The Cave

The official music video for “The Cave” features each of the four band members driving on scooters through the roads of Goa while singing the song in tandem with four Indian men in marching band uniforms to whom they gave their instruments at the start of the video.

We hope this tradition of shooting on Indian soil continues.

Good news for iOS users, Touch ID and Face ID are available on Whatsapp

0

WhatsApp’s new version for iOS has gotten a simple but important upgrade: The app now supports Apple’s Face ID face recognition tech, as well as Touch ID fingerprint scanner.

The update has gone live in WhatsApp’s version 2.19.20 for iOS, which is available to all users now. 

To turn the feature on, go to Settings > Account > Privacy and enable Screen Lock. When it’s on, you’ll need to use Touch ID or Face ID to unlock WhatsApp, though you’ll still be ably to reply to messages from notifications and answer calls, even when the app is locked. You’ll also be able to set whether you want the app to require Touch ID/Face ID immediately or after 1 minute, 15 minutes, and 1 hour. 

The feature is quite a big deal for WhatsApp, which touts end-to-end encryption and privacy/security in general as an important feature. Note, however, that both Touch ID and Face ID are less secure than using a good passphrase to protect your phone. 

WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, made the news recently when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained his plan for merging it with the company’s other two major social apps, Messenger and Instagram. One of the advantages of that would be having end-to-end encryption across all of those products. However, Zuckerberg said the plans to merge these three apps are in a really early stage and that it may not happen until 2020.

2 million accounts are banned every month by Whatsapp

0

In New Delhi on Wednesday, Facebook-owned WhatsApp held a press conference to share how it is tackling fake accounts and the spread of misinformation on its platform of 1.5 billion users.

The conference was especially urgent because India will hold its elections in April — and India, site of WhatsApp’s biggest user base, is also where WhatsApp has seen dangerous abuse that led to violence and death. 

According to a report from ZDNet, WhatsApp has been able to automate a lot of the bot and spam catching-process, and even proactively prevent potential abuse. It bans 2 million accounts per month, and reportedly catches 75 percent of those accounts without human intervention.

Abuse takes the form of fake accounts and bots that are either spamming users, attempting to steal information, or even more nefarious ends, such as political and social manipulation. India’s populace has shown that it is susceptible to these sorts of schemes, because many WhatsApp users are new to the web, and therefore have lower levels of digital literacy. WhatsApp has undertaken public education campaigns to teach its users to be more wary of the messages and information they receive.

Of the 2 million accounts WhatsApp bans per month, some of them never even make it onto the platform. Apparently, WhatsApp is able to catch 20 percent of fake accounts during the registration process by comparing the locations of phone numbers and IP addresses. It is also able to determine whether an account is fake if it immediately starts engaging in a high level of activity right after sign up, particularly bulk messaging. This proactivity could mean that WhatsApp is able to detect the malevolent activity before it has the chance to spread far and wide.

Bulk messaging has been one of the ways that fake information has spread so quickly on WhatsApp, in India and elsewhere. It took steps to limit forwarding in 2018 by labeling forwarded messages as such, and limiting the number of people a message could be forwarded to to five.

But in addition to imposing user limits, WhatsApp has also reportedly gotten wiser to the way networks are abusing this feature. It has found software that lets abusers run multiple instances of the same account, and devices that can handle multiple IP cards. 

Whether WhatsApp’s measures will be enough to support the integrity of the April election remains to be seen. The government has already made demands of the platform to contain the abuse. And conveying a complicated messages about bots, spam, fake news, and manipulation, to inexperienced internet users — in a market of 200 million users in India — is no easy task.

Jio planning to launch 5G services bundled in its own 5G handsets

348

Mukesh Ambani-owned telecom operator Reliance Jio is reportedly planning to bundle its own 5G handsets with 5Gservices by April next year, according to a report by Financial Chronicle.

The company is said to be in discussion with vendors for assembling the phones, as per the sources cited by the report.

The lack of availability of affordable 5G-ready handsets is one of the major reasons why some telcos wanted the auctions of spectrum to be pushed back. The government has said it will hold 5G airwaves in the second half of 2019.

The report mentioned that the telco would be ready to roll out 5G services in the country by April next year once the spectrum auction takes place in July, ecosystem develops for services thereafter and testing of equipment is over.

The telco is expected to launch its 5G handsets simultaneously with the launch of its 5G services to enable Jio customers to experience the high speed 5G services.

“Jio will replicate its 4G mobile services and feature phone model in 5G as well but the service and handset will be together,” said a source. Adding to it, the source said that the company is best placed to start equipment testing after auction by January next year supposing all ecosystems are in panned out then.

The 5G device ecosystem in India would possibly mature in 2020, a time frame which will coincide with the roll out of the first commercial networks on the next generation technology in the country.

All we know about the new Pixel 3, Pixel Slate, Pixel Stand and Home Hub

163

At a special event in New York City, Google announced some of its latest, flagship hardware devices. During the hour-long press conference Google executives and product managers took the wraps off the company’s latest products and explained their features. Chief among the lot is the Pixel 3, Google’s latest flagship Android device. Like the Pixel 2 before it, the Pixel 3’s main feature is its stellar camera but there’s a lot more magic packed inside the svelte frame.

Pixel 3

Contrary to some earlier renders, the third version of Google’s Android flagship (spotted by 9 to 5 Google) does boast a sizable notch up top, in keeping with earlier images of the larger XL. Makes sense, after all, Google went out of its way to boast about notch functionality when it introduced Pie, the latest version of its mobile OS.



The device is available for preorder today and will start shipping October 18, starting at $799. The larger XL starts at $899, still putting the product at less than the latest flagships from Apple and Samsung.

Pixel Slate

The device looks pretty much exactly like the leaks lead us to believe — it’s a premium slate with a keyboard cover that doubles as a stand. It also features a touch pad, which gives it the edge over products like Samsung’s most recent Galaxy Tab. There’s also a matching Google Pen, which appears to more or less be the same product announced around the Pixel Book, albeit with a darker paint job to match the new product.

The product starts at $599, plus $199 for the keyboard and $99 for the new dark Pen. All three are shipping at some point later this year.

Home Hub

The device looks like an Android tablet mounted on top of a speaker — which ought to address the backward firing sound, which is one of the largest design flaws of the recently introduced Echo Show 2. The speaker fabric comes in a number of different colors, in keeping with the rest of the Pixel/Home products, including the new Aqua.

When not in use, the product doubles as a smart picture frame, using albums from Google Photos. A new Live Albums, which auto updates, based on the people you choose. So you can, say, select your significant others and it will create a gallery based on that person. Sweet and also potentially creepy. Machine learning, meanwhile, will automatically filter out all of the lousy shots.

The Home Hub is up for pre-order today for a very reasonable $149. In fact, the device actually seems like a bit of a loss leader for the company in an attempt to hook people into the Google Assistant ecosystem. It will start shipping October 22.

Pixel Stand

The Pixel Stand is basically a sleek little round dock for your phone. While it can obviously charge your phone, what’s maybe more interesting is that when you put your phone into the cradle, it looks like it’ll start a new notifications view that’s not unlike what you’d see on a smart display. It costs $79.

7 Wonders of the World : 2018

2060

In 2007, more than 100 million people voted to declare the New Seven Wonders of the World. The following list of seven winners is presented without ranking, and aims to represent global heritage.



1 – Great Wall of China (China)

Built between the 5th century B.C. and the 16th century, the Great Wall of China is a stone-and-earth fortification created to protect the borders of the Chinese Empire from invading Mongols. The Great Wall is actually a succession of multiple walls spanning approximately 4,000 miles, making it the world’s longest manmade structure.

2 – Christ the Redeemer Statue (Rio de Janeiro)

The Art Deco-style Christ the Redeemer statue has been looming over the Brazilians from upon Corcovado mountain in an awe-inspiring state of eternal blessing since 1931. The 130-foot reinforced concrete-and-soapstone statue was designed by Heitor da Silva Costa and cost approximately $250,000 to build – much of the money was raised through donations. The statue has become an easily recognized icon for Rio and Brazil.

3 – Machu Picchu (Peru)




Machu Picchu, an Incan city of sparkling granite precariously perched between 2 towering Andean peaks, is thought by scholars to have been a sacred archaeological center for the nearby Incan capital of Cusco. Built at the peak of the Incan Empire in the mid-1400s, this mountain citadel was later abandoned by the Incas. The site remained unknown except to locals until 1911, when it was rediscovered by archaeologist Hiram Bingham. The site can only be reached by foot, train or helicopter; most visitors visit by train from nearby Cusco.

4 – Chichen Itza (Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico)

The genius and adaptability of Mayan culture can be seen in the splendid ruins of Chichen Itza. This powerful city, a trading center for cloth, slaves, honey and salt, flourished from approximately 800 to 1200, and acted as the political and economic hub of the Mayan civilization. The most familiar ruin at the site is El Caracol, a sophisticated astronomical observatory.

Oppo is about to change the future with it’s new Find X

2493

After a lot of build-up, Oppo has finally launched its flagship – Oppo Find X. The smartphone’s biggest highlight is its unique motorised camera slider that pops in and out from the top automatically. Oppo claims that the slider has been tested over 300,000 times for durability. Other key highlights of the Oppo Find X include a Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8GB of RAM, and 3D facial scanning. Oppo’s new flagship smartphone will be made available from August this year, and the company has revealed its price details as well.

Oppo Find X price, availability

At the Paris event, Oppo announced that the Find X will be priced at EUR 999 (roughly Rs. 79,000) and will be made available in August. India pricing and availability is expected to be announced on July 12, while a China event is scheduled for June 29. There’s also a Limited Lamborghini Edition that has 512GB storage, carbon fibre back, and Super VOOC Flash Charge. This version is priced at EUR 1,699 (roughly Rs. 134,400).



Oppo Find X design

The Oppo Find X comes in two colour variants – Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue. The smartphone has a bezel-less display with a small chin, and 3D facial scanning as the chief method of unlocking the smartphone, as there is no fingerprint scanner onboard.

Oppo Find X smartphone has a nice shiny metal back with curved edges, and no camera sensors up front or at the back. Instead, there is a motorised slider that opens and closes automatically whenever you open or close the camera app. Once you turn the phone on and swipe on the lock screen, the camera slider comes up to scan your face. As mentioned, the camera slider is claimed to have been tested over 300,000 times for durability. The slider consists of a dual camera setup at the rear end, and a single front camera. The front is all display, with a slight Galaxy S9-like curve around the side edges.

Oppo Find X features

To make up for the lack of fingerprint recognition, Oppo has introduced a unique facial scanning technology called the O-Face Recognition on the Find X. This is enabled by a 3D Structured Light Technology that the company claims has never been used on any Android smartphone. The technology uses 15,000 facial dot recognition and intelligent analysis to read a face. There’s also an IR sensor that lets O-Face work in the dark as well. Oppo claims that O-Face Recognition is 20 times safer than fingerprint recognition for unlocking the phone.

Oppo’s AI-assisted sensor also brings animated 3D emojis – just like the ones seen on the iPhone X. The company is calling it 3D Omoji, and it lets you choose a funny image or create a personal cartoon image to mimic your facial expression in real time.



Oppo Find X specifications

The latest Oppo offering runs on ColorOS 5.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo and supports dual-SIM slots (Nano+Nano). It comes with a 6.42-inch (1080×2340 pixels) full-HD+ AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 93.8 percent screen-to-body ratio, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 845 SoC with Adreno 630 GPU and 8GB of RAM. There’s 256GB inbuilt storage offered on the phone as well, with no storage expansion via microSD card.

Coming to optics, the Oppo Find X sports a camera slider that has a dual camera setup at the back. It consists of a 16-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, OIS and f/2.0 aperture, and a 20-megapixel secondary camera with f/2.2 aperture. Features like AI portraits and AI Scene Recognition technology are integrated. Up front, there is a 25-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture for selfies and video calling. The AI-enhanced 3D Camera is equipped with a 3D lighting techniques and filters for artistic portraits.



The smartphone packs a 3730mAh battery with VOOC fast charging. Connectivity options include USB-Type C port, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5 LE, and GPS. The Oppo Find X dimensions measure at 156.7×74.3×9.4mm, and it weighs about 186 grams.

Get ready gamers, Devil May Cry 5 will be out in first quarter of next year

2692

Devil May Cry 5, which was unveiled at E3 this week, will be released before April 2019, Capcom has announced.




The E3 trailer, above, gave a “Spring 2019” release date, but Capcom’s investor relations arm has since narrowed that window to before the end of March. Spring starts in late March, which suggests it’s coming out right at the end of the month.

It will be directed be Hideaki Itsuno, who directed Devil May Cry 3, Devil May Cry 4, and Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen. He and producer Matt Walker took to the stage at E3 to reassure fans that the game would be a “true sequel” to Devil May Cry 4. “This is our response that we hear you, loud and clear,” Walker said.




The game will have three playable characters, including Nero, who stars in the trailer, smashing enemies to pieces with a mechanical arm. Dante makes an appearance at the end, too, but we don’t yet know who the third character will be.

Highest Paid CEOs in the World (2018)

2869
