Chinese smartphone maker OPPO on Friday launched a new F11 Pro Marvels Avengers Limited Edition smartphone in collaboration with Marvel Studios.
Priced at Rs 27,990, the design of the smartphone is named Space Blue — blue background covered with an intricate hexagonal pattern at the back.
It features gradient effects as the colour changes in different lights — from steel blue in the middle to midnight blue on both sides.
“The bold red Avengers ‘A’ collides with the blue background to form the classic red-blue colour-blocking and also echoes the red switch button on the side, highlighting the Avengers’ logo,” said the company.
Each smartphone with 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM is equipped with a Captain America-themed case with extra protection and durability.
F11 Pro sports 48MP+5MP dual rear sensors for low-light photography and has a 16MP pop-up selfie camera mechanism.
Chinese smartphone makers OPPO, Vivo and Xiaomi on Thursday partnered to expand the peer-to-peer transmission alliance in the global market, while also welcoming more Android smartphone brands to join the movement.
“This three-brand partnership aims to bring the millions of OPPO, Vivo and Xiaomi users across the world effortless and more user-centric file-sharing. This is a significant first step for OPPO, Vivo and Xiaomi to better serve their users collectively, and we also welcome other Android smartphone brands to get involved and provide a more open, effortless, and interactive experience for users,” Andy Wu, Vice President of OPPO and President of Software Engineering Business Division, said in a statement.
The alliance will allow users to transmit files, pictures and videos without the need for an internet connection and these smartphone makers teamed up to form the peer-to-peer transmission alliance under the protocol for high-speed Wi-Fi Direct transfer across mobile devices.
The file transfer system designed is almost same as Apple’s Airdrop feature.
According to the company, the file transfer function scans devices using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) that boasts a broader range as well as lower power consumption, and it transmits files using Wi-Fi P2P (Peer to Peer) technology, which is faster than Bluetooth but will not compromise users’ Wi-Fi connectivity. This also delivers an average transfer speed of 20MB/s.
Additionally, US based search engine giant Google is also working on something similar called Fast Share, which will also be using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to make quick transfers. (IANS)
