Xiaomi is known to make some of the most aggressively priced phones, but its latest offering seems to be cut from a different cloth. While it still boasts some interesting specs, the company's marketing is all about the experience India's slimmest phone has to offer.
While Xiaomi has a long history of making impressive fitness trackers, its sub-brand Redmi is relatively new to the game with just a couple of wearables on offer. Much like other products in its lineup, the new Redmi Watch also caters to the budget segment, offering a smartwatch-like design at a price that isn’t much higher than a fitness band.
When you see that a phone has a MediaTek processor, you tend to assume that it's going to be a budget model. You might want to check that assumption, starting now: the Realme X7 Max 5G is a flagship design from top to bottom, and it's packing MediaTek silicon. In fact, it's the first phone to use the company's flagship Dimensity 1200 chip outside of the Chinese domestic market.

The world feels like it's gotten smaller in recent decades thanks to technology, but we're far, far away from adopting a universal currency. Sending money across borders — from the US to India, for example — is still not as seamless as we'd like it to be. Google Pay wants to change this.
The streaming wars have never been more heated, and Amazon isn't backing down in securing exclusive content for Prime Video. But it's also working on another video streaming service, and this one's totally free and supported by ads. Unfortunately, it's also limited to India.
Samsung is not only notorious for shipping duplicate apps but also packing its own voice assistant along with Android's default Google Assistant. If you live in India and wish Bixby could understand you better, you might be happy to learn that Samsung is finally adding support for Indian English.
Google Pay in India (formerly Tez) quickly rose in popularity to become almost synonymous with the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) — the very platform it’s based on. Last September, the company announced plans to expand beyond UPI payments to support tokenized cards, but nothing materialized even months after that initial teaser. It looks like Google Pay India is finally adding credit and debit cards as a supported payment option, though it isn't live for everyone yet.
