PS4 Slim with Horizon Zero Dawn, Ratchet and Clank, Driveclub, and Three Months PS Plus Membership Now Available in India

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The latest PS4 Slim bundle costs Rs. 28,990
  • It comes with three highly rated games
  • Expect more bundles from Sony India in the months to come

The PS4 Slim has received yet another bundle for India. This time around Rs. 28,990 gets you a PS4 Slim 500GB console, Horizon Zero Dawn, Ratchet and Clank, and Driveclub.

In addition to this, Sony India is also throwing in a three month subscription to PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) – Sony’s online service that allows you to play multiplayer and grants you access to an assortment of games each month.

PS4 Slim with Horizon Zero Dawn, Ratchet and Clank, Driveclub, and Three Months PS Plus Membership Now Available in India

While the likes of Amazon India list the PS4 bundle for a May 31 release date, several offline retailers have confirmed with Gadgets 360 that it is available in stores right now.

Considering that Horizon Zero Dawn retails for Rs. 3,999, Ratchet and Clank is priced at Rs. 2,750 (finally making it officially in India after months of Sony deciding otherwise), and Driveclub at Rs. 1,999, this is a stellar bundle. That is before factoring in the Rs. 1,599 cost of a three month PS Plus subscription.

If you’re looking to get a PS4, this is the bundle to buy. You may want to act soon though. According to multiple sources at retail, this specific bundle will be short supply much like the previous PS4 Slim Horizon Zero Dawn Bundle.

Don’t expect it to be Sony’s last first-party bundle either. With Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Gran Turismo Sport, and God of War expected this year, we could see more to come from the company.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium is now part of Open Devices program: Know what this means

 

What this means is that Sony is now allowing people especially developers to test, develop and also flash their own version of Android Nougat on the Xperia XZ Premium. The company says that the Open Devices program is meant for developers and not for consumers. However, the company also puts out a warning saying that the software provided can be unstable due to its early stage.

So going with developers might be a wise choice. Further, Sony says that it is offering guides on how to use the company’s AOSP device configurations to build a unique version of Android Nougat and flash it on unlocked Xperia device. However, developers will need to remember to download the necessary software binaries before they begin the development process. “As you may know, the Open Devices program is our way to provide access and tools to build and test your custom software on a range of Sony devices.

You can access all the resources you need through our Open Devices page on Developer World. We value our open source community and welcome you to participate in our projects via GitHub. Feel free to provide feedback on further resources you may need and where we can improve,” says the company.

This is really good for developers who are building an AOSP for the first time. New developers in the scene can always get started by following the guide provided by Sony.

Hello Lenovo: Motorola now owned by Chinese tech giant

 

Lenovo Group announced the completion of its acquisition of Motorola Mobility from Google Inc. on Thursday in a move aimed at making the Chinese computer maker a global smartphone brand.

The $2.9-billion purchase adds to a flurry of acquisitions and initiatives aimed at transforming Beijing-based Lenovo, the world’s biggest maker of personal computers, into a major player in wireless computing.

Google bought Motorola Mobility in 2012 for $12.4-billion but appeared to decide quickly the purchase was a mistake. It sold its set-top operations to Arris Group Inc. for $2.35-billion and its smartphone assets, along with some 2,000 patents, to Lenovo.

Lenovo chairman Yang Yuanqing said when the purchase was announced in January that it would help transform Lenovo into a global competitor in smartphones.

Motorola’s smartphone models include the Moto X, Moto G, Moto E and the DROID series.

The unit’s headquarters are to remain in Chicago. Lenovo is taking on some 3,500 Motorola engineers, designers and other employees worldwide, including 2,800 in the United States.

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro Gets a Price Cut, Now Available in India at Rs. 31,900

 

Earlier this year, Samsung launched the Galaxy C9 Pro, company’s first smartphone with 6GB RAM, in India at Rs. 36,900. To recall, the smartphone was initially launched for China in October last year and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. Now, the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro price in India has been slashed and customers can purchase the smartphone at Rs. 31,900 from Samsung’s own online store or from Flipkart in India.

While the South Korean company did not make an announcement on the price cut for the country, it has quietly shed Rs. 5,000 off from the official price for Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro from its official online store. Further, as we mentioned earlier, the smartphone is already available via Flipkart as well at the new price.Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro Gets a Price Cut, Now Available in India at Rs. 31,900

The dual-SIM (Nano+Nano) 4G-enabled Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro sports a 6-inch full HD (1080×1920) AMOLED display, and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC, with four cores clocked at 1.95GHz and the rest at 1.4GHz. In terms of optics, the Galaxy C9 Pro packs a 16-megapixel camera on both front and rear ends. The rear 16-megapixel camera comes with an aperture of f/1.9 and a dual-LED flash. The smartphone’s selfie camera too has the same aperture sans the flash module.

Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro comes with inbuilt storage of 64GB, which is expandable via a microSD card (up to 256GB). The smartphone has a fingerprint scanner mounted on its physical home button. The Galaxy C9 Pro packs a 4000mAh battery with fast charging support. Apart from 4G LTE, the connectivity options on the Galaxy C9 Pro include Bluetooth v4.2, Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n), GPS, Glonass, Beidou, NFC, USB Type-C, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
