SuperD D1 Real Shot: Made for 3D

The SuperD D1 is an example of these niche devices. It may look like any other smartphone, but it does something that most of the competition can’t. That is, 3D videos and games, without the need for 3D glasses.
But is it all a gimmick? is this enough to persuade people to have a good look at this device, and better yet, actually buy it? We spent some time with the phone, and here’s what we think.
The D1’s design reminds me of Xiaomi’s Redmi smartphones. The metal back houses fingerprint sensor and comes with a matte finish which can get a little slipper when holding the phone with one hand. The camera potrudes, similar to the ASUS Zenfone 3. Then there’s the again, awkwardly placed speaker at the back, which gets covered when the phone is placed flat on the ground.
Up front is a 5.5-inch display covered with 2.5D curved glass, along with the capacitive keys, and the two front cameras (Which we’ll talk about later).
The SuperD D1 sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a balanced color temperature and good contrast. There’s no over saturation here like what you’ll find in an AMOLED display, but it’s not boring as well. Icons and text also remain visible in direct sunlight, provided that brightness is maxed, which is a good thing.
Good for Daily Use, May Throw You Off With Bugs
SuperD D1 Specs:
  • MediaTek MT6750T Octa-Core Processor
  • 3GB of RAM, 32 GB of Internal Storage Expandable via MicroSD Card
  • 5-inch Full HD Display with 2.5D Curved Glass and Gorilla Glass 3 Protection
  • 13MP Rear Camera, f/2.2
  • 8MP Front Camera, f/2.0 + 2MP Dedicated Camera for Eye Tracking
  • LTE, Dual SIM (Hybrid)
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 3000mAh Battery
  • Fingerprint Sensor

Xiaomi launches updated Redmi Note 5 with brighter AI camera,

Xiaomi has launched an updated version of the Redmi Note 5 Pro in China. Called just Redmi Note 5, this new variant features is basically the Indian Redmi Note 5 Pro with some crucial improvements.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Coming soon in Coolicool

First, the similarities. Both models have the same 5.99-inch, 2160x1080 pixel IPS LCD panel, Snapdragon 636 chipset, 3/4/6GB of RAM with a 32/64GB of storage and a 4000mAh battery.
But the 12MP rear camera now has an F/1.9 lens compared to F/2.2 on the Indian model, larger 1.4μm pixels compared to 1.25μm, and also has dual pixel PDAF for faster focusing. The 5MP secondary camera on the back is identical though.
On the front, the 20MP camera from the Indian model has been replaced with a 13MP sensor. The cameras are also AI driven, with things such as portrait mode, beauty mode and face unlock being improved with AI, although that's likely the same as on the Indian model even if it's not marketed as such.
The Chinese variant also has a USB-C connector and support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 whereas the Indian model ships with a microUSB and Quick Charge 2.0.
Lastly, the Chinese model comes with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box running underneath MIUI 9 and also support for Project Treble while the Indian model ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
The new Redmi Note 5 will be available in Black, Blue, Gold and Rose Gold and prices start at RMB 1099 ($173).
