Debuts Infinity Display on Galaxy J6, J8, A6, and A6+


·         Samsung’s signature Infinity display gives 15% more display area without increase in device size
·         Samsung’s Infinity Display offers best in class viewing with Super AMOLED technology
·         ‘Make for India’ Chat-over-video feature allows you uninterrupted viewing experience

 Samsung, India’s number 1 and most trusted smartphone brand, today launched four new smartphones with Infinity display. The mobile industry will witness a paradigm shift in the design of smartphones with the introduction of Samsung’s signature Infinity Design philosophy on the A & J Series.

The Infinity Design on the Galaxy J6, J8, A6 and A6+ gives users nearly 15% more display area without increasing the overall size of the device. This can be attributed to extremely thin bezels and by swapping the physical home button with software powered in-display home button. The finger print sensor also moves to the back of the device for added convenience. These changes in the display hardware deliver a 18.5:9 aspect ratio that provides an end to end viewing experience and more browsing space. All four devices come with Samsung’s Super AMOLED display technology that produces deeper contrasts and delivers the most vivid viewing experience. Samsung’s Infinity display experience is further strengthened by a new ‘Chat Over Video’ feature that facilitates an uninterrupted and uncompromised viewing experience while chatting.

The new smartphones have been designed to impress. Galaxy A series smartphones come with metal unibody and sleek design. The A6+ has a 6” FHD+ display, while Galaxy A6 sports a 5.6” HD+ display. Galaxy J series smartphones come with a premium polycarbonate unibody. The J8 has a 6” HD+ display, while J6 come with 5.6” HD+ display. All four smartphones have sleek curves and an ergonomic design with elegant style and comfortable grip.

Galaxy J6, J8, A6 and A6+ are built for today's millennial. These smart phones will set the standard for an unparalleled viewing experience with Samsung’s signature super AMOLED Infinity Display. These phones also get dual rear cameras that let users capture professional grade bokeh images and express themselves in a unique manner. Our latest 'Make for India' innovation Chat-over-Video allows uninterrupted viewing experience just the way millennials want it. We are also introducing a new youthful and vibrant blue color that shows that we listen to our young consumers who constantly seek stylish designs," said Mohandeep Singh, Senior Vice President, Samsung India

Galaxy J6, J8, A6 and A6+ debut Samsung’s brand new ‘Make for India’ innovation that complements millennial requirements of uninterrupted video binging. Chat-over-Video allows consumers to chat through a transparent chat window and keyboard, while a video is still running. This new innovation eradicates the consumer pain point of chat interruptions while viewing content on their mobile devices. The other Make for India innovation, Samsung Mall app, brings a revolutionary new service for millennials. It uses Artificial Intelligence to let users shop by clicking a picture of the desired product and automatically getting results for the item across popular e-commerce platforms.

Galaxy J6, J8, A6 and A6+ sport best in class cameras that allow consumers to take beautiful shots or selfies anytime, anywhere. Galaxy A6+ and J8 come with dual rear cameras. The primary rear camera has 16MP and F1.7 aperture, while the secondary rear camera has 5MP and F1.9 aperture. With Live Focus, a flagship feature, you can take stunning portraits with background blur. The Dual camera also helps you adjust the background blur while taking a picture or even after taking the shot, leading to portraits that make you stand out. Galaxy A6 has a 16 MP rear camera with F1.7 aperture while J6 sports a 13MP rear shooter with F1.9 aperture. The new smartphones are equipped with best in class low-aperture lenses, allowing consumers to capture sharp, clear photos in low light conditions, without sacrificing image quality no matter what time of day.

The front camera on Galaxy J6, J8, A6 and A6+ smartphones features an adjustable selfie flash, allowing consumers to snap stylish selfies, from day to night. Galaxy A6+ has a 24MP front shooter, while both Galaxy A6 and J8 sport a 16 MP front camera. Galaxy J6 comes with 8MP front shooter. All front cameras have F1.9 aperture to deliver the best low light camera performance in the industry. The front camera on these devices also enable face unlock as an additional security feature.

These new smartphones come with Octa core processors. All smartphones come in 4GB/64GB RAM/ROM variants.

OnePlus 6 – The Speed You Need comes to India

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers



  • 6.28” Full Optic AMOLED Display with 19:9 aspect ratio, and Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845 to deliver immersive viewing experience and smooth performance
  • OnePlus 6 x Marvel Avengers Limited Edition unveiled exclusively with 8GB RAM and 256 GB RAM for the OnePlus community in India

 OnePlus announced its latest premium flagship device, the OnePlus 6. The OnePlus 6 – the first in OnePlus' line of flagships to feature an all-glass design – is the company's most sophisticated handset to date.

With a 6.28-inch Full Optic AMOLED 19:9 display – OnePlus' largest-ever screen – the OnePlus 6 offers an immersive viewing experience, while keeping a similar form factor to that of the OnePlus 5T.  Combining new technology from Qualcomm® with OnePlus' engineering, the OnePlus 6 is the fastest handset the company has ever produced. 

"With the OnePlus 6, we challenged ourselves to deliver an external design as smooth and elegant as the work we've done inside the device," said OnePlus Founder and CEO Pete Lau. "We're proud of what we've accomplished, and we hope our users are too."

Commenting on the launch, Manish Tiwary, Vice President – Category Management, Amazon India said “We are thrilled to announce the exclusive launch of OnePlus 6 on Amazon.in, inarguably one of the most awaited smartphones this season. OnePlus 6 is a dream smartphone for all gadget enthusiasts with industry leading features and design. With this launch, we continue to build a strong portfolio in the smartphones category providing customers with the widest exclusive selection, best value and unmatched shopping experience.”

Fast and Smooth Experience
Addressing a common pain point among smartphone users, OnePlus.in is committed to ensuring its phones remain as fast and smooth as the day they came out of the box. OnePlus achieves this goal through a combination of powerful hardware and intelligent software which work seamlessly together. The OnePlus 6 is powered by one of the most powerful processors on the market, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845, which improves performance by 30%, while being 10% more power efficient. Coupled with the Adreno 630, which is 30% faster than the previous generation, the OnePlus 6 is a powerhouse for everything from streaming HD video to playing graphically intense games.  

With up to 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, the OnePlus 6 effortlessly switches between multiple apps running at the same time without a single second of lag, allowing users to multitask with ease. The OnePlus 6's dual-lane storage, based on UFS 2.1, ensures faster app loading and read/write speeds.  

Bolder Design 
As with any OnePlus device, the OnePlus 6 is beautiful and functional in equal measure – now, with more screen than ever before. To provide users with as much screen real estate as possible, OnePlus designed the navigation bar so that it can be replaced with gesture control, freeing up even more viewing space for a cleaner look.

OnePlus has experimented and innovated with glass to deliver its boldest design to date. Donning an all-glass design, the OnePlus 6 facilitates better transmission of radio waves, providing users with up to 1 gigabit of download speed. Due to its strength and malleability, OnePlus used Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and the back of the device, shaping it with slight curves to create an uninterrupted look and feel.

OnePlus' meticulous attention to detail is reflected in each of the OnePlus 6's color variants: Mirror Black, Midnight Black and a limited-edition Silk White. For the Mirror Black and Midnight Black variants, OnePlus embedded a thin layer of film underneath the glass to create a sense of depth as light and shadow move on the device. A jagged texture was etched onto the film of the MidnightBlack to produce a subtle S-shaped line when the phone is reflected in light. The limited-edition Silk White uses pearl powder to create a subtle shimmering effect. 

High-speed Dual Camera with Optical Image Stabilization  
The OnePlus 6’s dual camera system features a 16MP main camera, supported by a 20MP secondary camera. With an f/1.7 aperture, the 16MP main camera has been bolstered by a 19 percent larger sensor and OIS for outstanding performance in a range of lighting conditions. With Advanced HDR, OnePlus' improved High Dynamic Range algorithm, the OnePlus 6 brings out shadows and enhances lighting in photos.  Portrait Mode will be available on the OnePlus 6's front camera as well as its rear. Using AI, the front camera is able to apply a depth of field effect to selfies. Newly added bokeh effects, including circles, hearts and stars offer new ways for users to customize their portraits. 

The OnePlus 6 marks the introduction of OnePlus' Slow-Motion mode, which can capture high-definition video frame-by-frame with astonishing detail, ensuring users never miss the action. 

Android Refined – OxygenOS 
OnePlus’ operating system, OxygenOS, offers a refined Android experience that is faster, cleaner and more customizable than other Android experiences. 

Like its approach to hardware, OnePlus' approach to software is centered around an experience that is refined, efficient and minimalistic. New features are vetted by OnePlus users through channels like the OxygenOS Beta Program and only added once OnePlus is confident the features can improve the way users use their phone.  

A Day’s Power in Half an Hour 
The OnePlus 6's Dash charge – a favorite feature amongst OnePlus users – offers one of the fastest charging solutions on the global market. A half-hour charge gives the OnePlus 6 enough power for the entire day.

Abbott’s New PediaSure ® Cookies & Cream ensures Summer Break is a good #timetogrow for Children


 Cookies & Cream flavoured PediaSure is packed with 37 vital nutrients which support a child's growing height, weight and energy requirements
 PediaSure offers an optimal balance of taste and nutrition for the high activity summer break
 Actress Lara Dutta is inspiring Indian parents to incorporate this healthy and tasty addition to their child’s plate

"Is my child eating right?", is a concern many young parents face with their children. As kids enjoy their high activity summer break, it is important for parents to offer a complete and balanced nutrition and ensure their kids’ growth is not compromised. There's now a nutritious and tasty option to address this concern as Abbott introduces the all new PediaSure flavour, Cookies & Cream for children two years and above.

PediaSure Cookies & Cream provides complete and balanced nutrition for a growing child at nutritional risk. Packed with 37 vital nutrients, it supports a child's growing height, weight and energy requirements. During summer vacation, fun takes centrestage and discipline about nutrition is often broken as children consume unhealthy foods or eat at irregular times. Two servings (morning and evening) of PediaSure go a long way towards building immunity as well as physical and brain development in children – and the new flavour is great for children who are very selective in their taste preferences.

With summers in full swing, and schools closed for holidays, it is the perfect time to keep activity levels up and good health at its peak for school-going kids. At the launch event, Actress Lara Dutta, mother to a six-year-old, spoke about the importance of optimum nutrition in holistic child growth.
"During summers, my daughter is filled with ideas – to play new games, places to go and have lots of uninterrupted fun. I am sure all young ones look forward to the summer break the same way. While children are excited about holidays, parents often stress about how they can engage them effectively and ensure that they eat right. My daughter has very strong taste preferences, and I am on the look-out for food options that are not just healthy but also tasty and packed with nutrients," she said, as she shared her experience of raising her child.

Amal Kelshikar, Country Head & General Manager - India at Abbott Nutrition shared, “We understand how parents worry about their kids' complete nutrition and growth, particularly so in the summer break time when meal-time discipline becomes flexible and play time takes centerstage.

PediaSure is the No. 1 brand recommended by pediatricians all around the world. PediaSure is a scientifically proven supplement to improve linear growth without excess weight gain in children at
nutritional risk. We have added to PediaSure a delicious twist, with the new Cookies & Cream flavour that will appeal to every child's palate while offering them the healthy nutrition they need." "Summer is not just a season – it’s an opportunity to refresh, relax, learn and grow, for kids. I often meet moms who come to me for advice on a balanced diet for their kids. I always recommend a lot of outdoor play, minimal screen time on television and phone, and most importantly, I tell them not to lose focus on balanced nutrition. Children’s diet should be wholesome, healthy and have the right blend of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals to support their growth and development needs,” said Dr Indu Khosla, practicing pediatrician at Cloudnine Hospital.

“A child’s formative years, two to six years, lay the foundation for motor, cognitive, social, and emotional skills for life. During this period, children witness rapid linear growth, continued development of organs and neural expansion. Therefore, this is the time when children have specific nutritional requirements and high energy needs. Along with a variety of foods to ensure a balanced diet, for some children it is imperative to introduce an oral nutrition supplement formulated to take care of nutrient requirements for this age so that they do not miss out on overall growth,” said Dr Eileen Canday, HOD Nutrition & Dietetic Department, Sir H.N. Reliance Foundation Hospital, at the launch.

PediaSure Cookies & Cream is available nationwide at most major retailers and online. To learn more about your child's wholesome nutrition, visit PediaSure.in OR Facwcebook.com/PediaSureIndia.
