Expanding its “Y” series, Chinese handset maker Vivo on Monday launched “Y53i” smartphone with Ultra-HD technology and “face access” feature in India for Rs 7,990.

The 8MP rear camera houses “Ultra HD” technology that helps shoot several consecutive images and combines them to render clear and detailed photos with a resolution of up to 32MP.

The budget device also has “Screen Flash” feature that claims to provide detailed selfies even in low-light conditions.

The smartphone will be available in crown gold and matte black colours across all offline stores, the company said in a statement.

“With the introduction of Y53i, we are strengthening our budget smartphone portfolio by delivering an outstanding camera and user experience at a competitive price point,” said Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India.

Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, “Vivo Y53i” also features a 2500mAh battery.

The handset houses “smart eye protection” that filters out blue light to prevent eye strain and “App clone” function to make multitasking easier.  IANS

HP Considering India as a Key Focus Area

India is key focus area, 3D printers next big thing

India is a very attractive market with high brand recognition for a computer hardware producer like HP, said HP Inc’s President for Asia Pacific and Japan, Tian Chong Ng.

The Asia Pacific region — in which India is a key focus area — has been the fastest growing for HP and provided 16 per cent revenue growth last year.

In Q1 of FY2019 it registered 8 per cent growth year-on-year, said Ng in the course of the HP Reinvent 2019 conference, the company’s largest global partner event.

One reason for that is — India – and also the Asia Pacific region — tick marks on demographics trends which provide clear wins for HP: rapid urbanisation and more millennials are joining the work force.

While HP is very positive on India and recognises its potential, there are no plans yet for setting up a manufacturing base in India. Ng said it already has a manufacturing base in China apart from others in Vietnam, Thailand and Japan.

“There is an existing ecosystem in China and we don’t have plans for setting up a manufacturing base in India, he said.

One focus area is the 3D printer, which offers HP great opportunity. Construction and automotive sectors are the focus areas here. Meanwhile, an MoU has been signed with the Andhra Pradesh government.

“To be successful in India demands that we understand it,” he said.

HP is also pushing gaming in a big way. However, this has not led to any thinking for manufacturing mobile phones in India, despite the high number of gamers in the country spurred by affordable android phones and cheap data.

“Our strength is the PC business and we offer a whole family of products in that space,” Ng said. (IANS)
