The phone comes exactly a year after the launch of the Honor 9 Lite, which has been the company’s best-selling phone of 2018. Honor will hope to see a similar response from the Honor 10 Lite this year as the phone highlights a waterdrop display, AI-backed cameras and Android Pie, among other things.The Honor 10 Lite has been launched with a price starting at Rs 13,999 for the base model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The company has also announced a 6GB + 64GB variant that is priced at Rs 17,999. The Honor 10 Lite is a Flipkart exclusive device and will go on sale on the e-commerce platform from January 20, 2019 at 12am. The device will also be available on Honor’s online store. Honor is also offering a Rs 2,200 cashback for Jio users as well.Honor 10 Lite specificationsThe Honor 10 Lite follows in the footsteps of past Honor phones by keeping design on priority. The Honor 10 Lite sports a glass-like curved panel on the back that is reflective and comes in three colours – a gradient Sky Blue colour, Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black. The phone also gets a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and vertically placed dual AI cameras. Up front, the Honor 10 Lite gets a 6.21-inch FHD+ Dewdrop display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. This means the notch is small and shaped like a water droplet, offering less intrusion compared to typical notches. The Honor 10 Lite is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Kirin 710 chipset coupled with up to 6GB of RAM. This is also the first Honor phone to get GPU Turbo 2.0 that promises to bring down jitter rate by 88 per cent to offer a seamless gaming experience. It gets a hybrid SIM slot that can take either two SIM cards or a Nano SIM and microSD card.advertisementThe Honor 10 Lite is heavily backed by AI and this is more explicit with the cameras. The dual AI cameras on the back includes a 13MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 2-megapixel secondary camera for depth sensing. The phone also gets a 24MP front-facing camera housed in the notch with AI support as well for Portrait support and Groupfies. With AI enabled, the camera will automatically detect a scene and tweak the setting depending on what it recognises. The rear camera can recognise over 20 categories while the front camera can recognise eight scenes. The rear camera also supports AIS (AI-based stability) and the camera app gets a dedicated Night mode as well.Honor’s new mid-range smartphone houses a 3,400mAh battery that charges over a microUSB port. Honor says the phone takes less than two hours to charge from zero to 100 per cent, which is apparently better than the Realme U1. The Honor 10 Lite is also the company’s first phone to ship with Android Pie with EMUI 9 on top, which brings features like HiVision, Digital Balance and new gesture navigation.ALSO READ | Honor 10 Lite quick review: A worthy successor to Honor 9 Lite?ALSO READ | Honor View 20 quick review: A hole new experience<br />Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

US Open 2019: Roger Federer sick and tired of preferential treatment talk

first_img Reuters New YorkAugust 31, 2019UPDATED: August 31, 2019 07:51 IST US Open 2019: Roger Federer progressed to the fourth round, beating Dan Evans in straight sets (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSFederer said he is sick and tired of complaints over favourable scheduleI have heard this shit too often now. I am sick and tired of it: FedererFederer defeated Evans 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 to reach R16 at US OpenRoger Federer said he is sick and tired of complaints that he receives a favourable playing schedule after his latest US Open victim suggested on Friday the five-times champion gets preferential treatment.Federer began day session on Arthur Ashe Stadium against Briton Dan Evans, who because of rain earlier in the week did not finish his second-round match until Thursday afternoon.Evans looked tired from the outset of his third-round loss to Federer, who completed his previous match under a closed roof on Wednesday, but the Swiss great said his team did not demand an early start time but were asked if they had a preference.”That doesn’t mean like, ‘Roger asks, Roger gets.’ Just remember that, because I have heard this shit too often now,” said Federer. “I’m sick and tired of it, that apparently I call the shots. The tournament and the TV stations do.”We can give our opinion. That’s what we do. But I’m still going to walk out even if they schedule me at 4:00 in the morning.”Federer, who is seeking a record-extending 21st Grand Slam title, also pointed out that whatever time Evans finished his second-round match he was always going to be at a disadvantage.Luck was on my side: FedererStill, the 38-year-old Swiss said he understood Evans’ frustration at the quick turnaround but was not about to apologise for something that was out of his control.”That’s tennis. It’s entertainment, and the show must go on,” Federer said after his 6-2 6-2 6-1 win. “Luck was on my side. There you have it. So, yeah, I understand if Danny is, like, a little bit frustrated.”advertisementWhile Evans admitted that Federer was simply too good, he also pointed out that he was trying to beat the Swiss while tired a day after a four-set match was “near on impossible.”Evans also suggested that there are about three players who have a say in when they play their matches and when asked if his team requested a later timeslot, he shot back and asked if a player ranked 58th would actually have a say in the matter.When told there was a suggestion that Federer requested that match time, Evans did not seem all that surprised.”That wouldn’t be the first time the higher-ranked player has had pull,” said Evans. “But also, the tournament… would rather Roger be going through that match than me, so it’s understandable.”Evans is not the first to moan about the subject.Last year Frenchman Julien Benneteau caused a stir when he accused tournament referees of being kinder to Federer when it came to scheduling matches.He felt the Swiss’s status meant organisers at events such as the Australian Open would regularly schedule Federer’s matches during the night session so that he would avoid the scorching temperatures.But there were plenty of players, including world number one Novak Djokovic, who leapt to Federer’s defence.”He deserves the special treatment because… (he’s) arguably the best player ever,” Djokovic said last November.”If he doesn’t have it, who is going to have it? People want to see him play on the centre court, and they want to see him play in showtime, the best hours, which is 7:30 at night.”Sometimes it does seem that maybe certain players get more favoured… On the other side, you have to understand that Federer is a driving force of tennis in terms of revenue, in terms of attention.”American John Isner said the likes of Federer, Djokovic and Rafael Nadal should get even more privileges.”If anything, maybe they should get more special treatment because those guys… have made other players below them a lot of money.”Roger… He is men’s tennis in my opinion. He deserves everything and more that he’s ever had.”Also Read | US Open 2019: Roger Federer strolls into Round of 16, Rafael Nadal gets walkoverAlso Read | US Open: Serena Williams, Ashleigh Barty advance to next round, Kei Nishikori crashes outAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
