In April, Xiaomi announced the cancellation of the Android 9.0 Pie update for budget smartphones Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, which were released last summer. But now, it seems, the company has changed its mind.
Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A still get an upgrade to Android 9.0 Pie. And on the official MIUI forum, a set of beta testers for the new firmware has already been announced.
Of course, before the release of a stable OS version is still far: during testing, the manufacturer will have to find errors and fix them. But all the same, I am glad that the company has not curtailed the work on the update.
Recall that in late April, Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A received a new version of the MIUI firmware based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
The Digitimes publication, citing sources among motherboard manufacturers, reports that Intel intends to lower the price of processors in the near future.
So, the eighth and ninth generation Intel Core processors should be cheaper. Prices will be reduced by 10-15% (from 25 to 75 dollars). For example, the flagship eight-core Core i9-9900K will cost $425-450, and the Core i7-9700K – $320-340.
It is reported that the company has already warned about the new pricing policy of its key partners. If the information is confirmed, the new price tags should appear in the near future.
Such measures are associated with the market entry of 7-nm Ryzen 3000 processors with the number of cores from 6 to 12, which offer a more advantageous combination of performance and price.
It seems that Intel simply has nothing to offer in response to AMD: the next generation of processors will be released only by the end of the year, and Coffee Lake Refresh have no more than 8 cores.
Huawei is preparing for the announcement of the flagship line of smartphones Nova 5. Now the network has information about the cost of the older model.

Apparently, the novelty will compete with OnePlus 7 Pro, which can now be found in China for $ 580 (6/128 GB).
Recall, Huawei Nova 5 Pro will receive a widescreen OLED display with a drop-shaped cutout and a flagship 7-nanometer processor Kirin 980. The smartphone is also credited with the main camera with four modules and a 40 megapixel front sensor, a 4000 mAh battery and a fingerprint scanner fingers under the display.

Samsung has brought Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A20 smartphones to the US, as well as a completely new Galaxy A10e.
The novelty has become a simplified version of the usual Galaxy A10. The smartphone was equipped with a 5.83-inch display Infinity-V with a resolution of HD +. The device has received an 8-megapixel main camera, trimmed to 3000 mAh battery and built-in 32 GB drive.
The company did not disclose other characteristics of the Galaxy A10e, but it is rumored that it will run on a MediaTek Helio P22 processor or on the Exynos 7884 chipset paired with 2/3 GB of RAM. Fingerprint scanner in the smartphone is not.
The device will begin to sell in the US in the coming days with a rather big price tag of $ 180.
Harris Interactive has conducted a study and ranked the most reliable smartphones.
Experts analyzed 130,050 cases of after-sales unplanned user calls at Darty, a large European retail chain of electronics. As a result, they made a list of models that most often and, conversely, rarely needed warranty repairs.
At the same time, cases were taken into account for an average two-year warranty period, in the USA – 1 year.
As a result, Huawei and its sub-brand Honor became the leaders of the rating. And it is Honor gadgets that head the list. In third place is the iPhone from Apple.
