Xiaomi Pocophone F1 Pre-Orders Open In U.S. Sans LTE

Xiaomi recently launched a sub-brand and its first device is perhaps the cheapest smartphone on the market with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. That’s the same processor that you’ll find in flagships like the Galaxy Note 9. It’s now available for pre-order in the United States. Interested customers should keep in mind that the device won’t support LTE in the U.S.

The 6GB RAM and 64GB variant of the Pocophone F1 is now available for pre-order from B&H Photo Video. It’s priced at $370. Again, this is a device that comes with the Snapdragon 845. The other specs are impressive at this price point as well.

It has a 6.18 inch 1080×2246 pixel resolution LCD display. There’s a 12 megapixel + 5 megapixel dual camera at the back in addition to the 20 megapixel front camera. It’s powered by Android 8.1 Oreo and has a chunky 4,000mAh battery.

This particular version that’s available for pre-order in the U.S. now is not compatible with CDMA networks so Verizon and Sprint are out. Moreover, it doesn’t have the LTE bands that will allow it to work on T-Mobile and AT&T’s LTE networks.

It only supports 1900MHz frequency for 3G so those who can live with that can now go ahead and pre-order this device. Customers can opt for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant as well which is priced at $400.

11 iconic movie / TV characters who should have been HODLing

It’s no secret: Cryptocurrencies have had better days. Though people who’ve been HODLing since 2016 are still smiling upon today’s bear market, those who jumped on the crypto train in late 2017 might feel it’s an empty phrase. But HODLing is more than an investment strategy. It’s a philosophy. A way of life. Or maybe we just needed a crypto-related segue into a more appealing topic — movie and TV characters falling to their deaths. Which is what you came for, right? So here’s the list (and yes, spoilers). 1. Hans Gruber — Die Hard Hans Gruber’s death in Die…

Caviar Launches $6,000+ Custom iPhone XS With Built-In Mechanical Skeleton Watch

Caviar, a site known for creating extravagant, expensive replacement casings for Apple’s iPhone models, today announced the launch of its latest custom creation, an iPhone XS with a built-in skeleton watch.

The Grand Complications Skeleton collection, inspired by luxury watches, features iPhone XS and XS Max models in titanium, pink gold, and black and gold, all of which have mechanical watch components included right in the casing.

The front of the iPhone has been left untouched, but the back features a mechanical watch with an accurate Swiss watch mechanism complemented by intricate guilloche work and matching engravings.

According to Caviar, the watch built into the customized iPhones is wound manually through a crown that’s included on the right side of the casing.

“We’ve been keeping this development as a secret for a long time, that’s why now we’re especially happy to present it to your attention. We ourselves are fascinated by the idea of meeting of the heritage of the past and the achievements of the future in the body of one device. We got used to thinking that a smartphone is all we need today and this is our whole life. But in fact, our life is not limited by the technologies only. The passage of time, majestic and implacable is still worth watching by real hands. The watch is, if we may say so, the beginning of the progress, the mechanism, from which everything has begun. This is why a mechanical watch today is a real luxury.”

Caviar is limiting the Grand Complications Skeleton iPhones to 99 pieces in each colorway, with each iPhone numbered via an engraving on the side of the device.

More details on the new Grand Complications Skeleton collection can be found on Caviar’s website. The new iPhones are priced starting at $6,320 for a 64GB titanium iPhone XS model and go up to $8,080 for a black and gold iPhone XS Max with 512GB storage.

Caviar also sells a range of other customized luxury iPhones made from unique materials and with intricate designs.
