Since the launch of its very first phone, OnePlus has been known for its flagship phones with each one having brilliant features. With the launch of its latest phone, OnePlus 7 Pro, the expectations of the new features are at an all time high. If you are planning on buying the phone, then here are some features you should definitely try!
1. Auto Drop Detection
The auto drop detection is made for people who are prone to dropping their phones. If your front camera is out and you are about to drop your phone, the camera senses the fall and automatically pops back in to avoid getting damaged. While it sounds like a cool feature, please don’t try it just because you can!
2. Zen Mode
If you need a timeout from your phone and don’t have the willpower to do it at regular intervals, then the Zen Mode is perfect for you. When the Zen Mode is activated, the phone locks users out for 20 minutes. The only thing users can access is the camera and incoming calls. To exit the Zen Mode, you can’t do anything but restart the phone! Definitely a must have for people addicted to their phones.
3. Screen Recording
Taking screenshots to another level, OnePlus 7 Pro now lets you take screen recordings of your calls! Coming in the form of an integrated feature, the service works with just a tap. All you have to do is activate the service and voila! The feature can work on Zen Mode as well if you add it to the Quick Settings mode and use it through there.
4. Make your colours
Till Android Pie, you could only select a few colours from a given palette. With the OnePlus 7 Pro, you can now choose which colour to use as your main accent colour within the interface. All you have to do is go to the settings and with the slider bar and gradient bar, you can choose whatever colour want! How cool is that?
5. Fingerprint animation
Unlike other phones, you can change the animations on your fingerprint sensor. All you have to do is go to the settings, then security and then to the lock screen. Once you reach the fingerprint section, pick the fingerprint animation feature and tada! You can now animate the sensor to your liking. If you get tired of the additional animations, you can easily disable it.
6. Navigation Gestures
While the new OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a sharper look and no dents, the navigation feature is increasing the anticipation around the phone. The navigation bar, while one of the most used features on any phone, can be quite an irritant. With the navigation gesture feature, you can now just swipe away the feature and clear the clutter on your phone! Slick and clean, this service is going to be quite a treat.

Facebook Reveals Details Of Its Cryptocurrency Libra
On the 18th of June, Facebook revealed details of its brand new cryptocurrency called Libra. An alternative to cash, this cryptocoin can be used to buy things or send money to people with close to no fees. The cryptocurrency is going to be launched by an association called The Libra Association, which consists of a group of companies interested in getting Libra out into the world.
You can use Libra to buy or cash out your Libra at local stores like grocery stores and through third party wallet apps. To make using Libra an easier task, Facebook owned Calibra Wallet will be built into WhatsApp and Messenger, thereby simplifying transaction processes. Although certain countries have banned the use of cryptocurrencies, Facebook is trying to break new ground with the launch of Libra.
While Facebook is launching Libra, the social media giant is not going to be in complete control of the cryptocoin. The coin will be controlled by a consortium consisting of its founding members, Visa, Uber and Andreessen Horowitz. The three companies have invested at least $ 10 million each into the creation of this cryptocurrency.
Customers interested in holding or transferring the newly acquired token will be given multiple options to do what they wish. To further simplify matters, Facebook will let customers access transactions through this cryptocurrency via a special app designed for iOS and Android.
To protect the identity of its users while making transactions through the new app, Facebook won’t require you to share personal details. “The advent of the internet and mobile broadband has empowered billions of people globally to have access to the world’s knowledge and information, high fidelity communication, and a wide range of lowercost, more convenient services,” the Libra Association said in a paper announcing the cryptocurrency.
Libra will be made available to the world during the first half of 2020. As of now, Facebook is focusing on building relationships in international waters.
Stay tuned for more updates.
Facebook Invests In Indian Startup Meesho
On the 13th of June, social media giant Facebook announced, it invested an undisclosed amount in Indian startup Meesho.
A Bengaluru based startup, Meesho works with resellers and emerging brands using social media. This is the first time Facebook invested in a startup based in India. Through this investment, Facebook aims to increase its commitment to the Country’s vibrant internet ecosystem.
“Facebook is an ally for India’s economic growth and social development. We are excited about India and its rapidly rising Internet ecosystem. With this investment in Meesho, we want to fuel a business model that can result in rapid job creation and the rise of a female entrepreneurial class in India,” Ajit Mohan, the Managing Director of Facebook India, said in a statement.
It was two primary factors which made Facebook invest in Meesho. The first reason was how the startup is growing outside the Tier II and III cities, where new users are present. The second reason is, Meesho has a larger user base, 80 % of which are women.
So far, Meesho has raised $ 50 million from a Series C funding round in November last year. According to industry reports, the startup helps people using its service earn close to Rs. 25,000 every month! With WhatsApp playing a crucial role in the app’s growth, it comes as an added blessing that Facebook invested in this particular startup.
Through investments like these, Facebook is capitalizing on the social media boom happening in India.

The Qute automobiles was first launched in February this year by Bajaj Auto. From the moment it launched, the service was well received in places across South India. Coming in the form of a four seater with one seat for the driver, the Bajaj Qute is aimed at reducing the pollution in an already polluted world. With a turning radius of 3.5 meters, this service has already made Uber quite popular.
Speaking about the partnership, Samardeep Subandh, Senior VP, Bajaj Auto, said: “Bajaj Qute is the first quadricycle in India. It will prove to be an ideal solution for the mobility challenges of congestion and pollution arising from rapid urbanisation. Launched in both CNG and Petrol variant, the Qute is powered by a lightweight 216 CC four-valve water-cooled DTSi engine with closed loop fuel injection system resulting in higher fuel efficiency.”
This is not the first time Uber formed a partnership like this. Previously, the cab service Company also partnered with Yulu in Bengaluru to provide e bikes for people travelling short distances.
