Nexus 6 2015 – what we think we know





Google has announced a mysterious event for September 29, but let’s be real: what else could it be than the launch of the new Nexus line-up? Google launched the Motorola Nexus 6 and the HTC Nexus 9 in October last year, and September 29 is pretty darn close to that. Although many might be hoping to see the new devices at the IFA Berlin conference this week, that’s most likely not going to happen. But we should look forward to the new Nexus 6 2015 and Nexus 5 2015, as they’re almost entirely confirmed. Or so we believe.

Fact of the matter is, even the names Huawei Nexus 6 2015 and LG Nexus 5 2015 are only speculated and assumed by the tech and news community. We know nothing about what’s to come, but we can sure get inspired by the thousands of leaks and small drops of information here and there. Based on these rumors, leaks, hints and tips coming from various sources, we can get a good picture about what the new Nexus 6 2015, made by Huawei, will look and feel like.

Since Huawei just launched the Mate S, the Nexus 6 2015 will most likely take a bit of inspiration from that. As Motorola’s Nexus 6 looked like a blown-up Motorola Moto X 2nd generation, the Nexus 6 2015 might end up looking like the flagship device of the company that is producing it too. That depends on Google just as much as it does on Huawei, so we’re not entirely sure whether the Mate S is a good indication of the direction of the device or not. It can’t be bad, as the Mate S is one of the most well-balanced flagship smartphones of the year.

The Nexus 6 2015 release date can be none other than September 29, with official sales kicking off most likely in November, just after Halloween. That means the device will most likely be on offer for the Holidays, which is great. Pricing of the new Nexus 6 2015 will most likely be close to last year’s pricing while the LG Nexus 5 2015 will be the cheaper option. The Huawei device will cost about $600 tops, while the reboot of the Nexus 5 will be between $350 and $450.


This is the Nexus 5 2015

When it comes to specs and features, the Nexus 6 2015 will most likely harbor a 5.7-inch FHD or QHD display with a fingerprint sensor on the back, as shown in a couple of leaked images.  The design of the device will revolve around metal and there might even be a microSD card slot included, like in the Huawei Mate S. Under the hood, the handset will most likely sport a Snapdragon 810 CPU, 3 GB RAM and up to 128 GB internal stroage.

USB Type-C is a sure thing on both the Nexus 5 2015 and the Nexus 6 2015. Moreover, both devices are said to be water resistant, which is good enough. Waterproof phones might not be good for Google, as the target audience for these types of devices is a niche one that is hard to pinpoint – and it’s not a large one either.




Huawei Nexus 6 2015 concept, lacking a fingerprint sensor on the rear

When it comes to the camera, leaked images suggest that the Nexus 6 2015 will come with dual cameras, hinting at motion tracking or depth sensing features. The main camera on the rear will measure either 16 or 21 MP, while the front camera will measure 5 MP and will come with its own flash. The battery of the device will go upwards of 3700 mAh, which will most likely provide a two-day battery life, which would be impressive.

With the partnership between Huawei and Google, Chine will most likely get their first Nexus device and its own version of the Google Play Store, up to the country’s standards. Although some say Google shouldn’t contribute to the Chinese oppression of its people by releasing a separate version of the Google Play Store, business is business and the Mountain View giant has a big shot at making a good impression and a lot of money.

We’re excited about the Nexus 6 2015 and how the partnership between Huawei and Google pans out, but we won’t find out more until IFA starts tomorrow. We’re hoping to get some insight about the September 29 event, to at least find out how many devices will be introduced or a sneak peek at what Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s final version looks like. Until the end of the month, we suggest you take any and all Nexus 6 2015 leaks and rumors with a grain of salt.

3 Video Games About Women’s Health





Video games have transcended entertainment to become powerful tools for promoting health and wellness. One notable genre in this realm is fitness gaming, exemplified by titles like Hatsune Miku Fit Boxing, which motivates players to engage in physical activity to enhance their fitness levels. Building on this foundation, developers have ventured into women’s health with games designed to raise awareness and empower players to take control of their well-being. Here are 3 video games on women’s health that provide valuable health information and foster a sense of agency to uplift women around the world.

Tampon Run – Menstrual health

Created by Girls Who Code alumnae Andrea Gonzales and Sophie Houser in 2014, Tampon Run is an old-school 8-bit online game where the main character, Luna, lobs tampons to destroy enemies, who will confiscate the tampons if she lets them pass by. Interestingly, the concept of weaponized tampons is based on a real incident that occurred in 2013, where Texas state troopers confiscated tampons as potential projectiles, but not guns, from visitors observing a vote on abortion restrictions at the Texas State Capitol. The goal of Tampon Run is to destigmatize periods and menstrual products, which, up until recently, have not been properly studied to measure their absorbency, which underscores the need to address menstrual health so that women can get better care.

In between tossing tampons, Luna shares empowering messages about how periods are a natural part of women’s lives and should not be a source of shame or embarrassment. The game is available to play on the Tampon Run website and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store for iOS users.

PCOS Vitality – PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a complex hormonal condition and the leading cause of female infertility that affects approximately 5 to 6 million women in the US, according to the Endocrine Society. Common features of the condition include having irregular menstrual periods, hyperandrogenism, and polycystic ovaries. Additionally, some studies estimate that up to 88% of women with PCOS are overweight or obese. While there are weight loss programs helping women tackle PCOS, focusing on aspects like lifestyle, symptom management, diet, and other tips for how to lose weight with PCOS, the condition itself remains grossly under-researched. For some women, it may take years to confirm that they have PCOS, as there are other disorders that mimic PCOS signs and symptoms that must be excluded.

The lack of research has extended to a lack of awareness among the general population and is what clinicians from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland are trying to address with the 2023 game PCOS Vitality. Essentially a learning tool, the game takes users through a simple obstacle course. As you click toward the finish line, you are asked simple trivia questions about PCOS. The game is free to play on Focus Games’ website.

Bound by Blood – Period poverty

Period poverty refers to the lack of regular access to period products, painkillers, or underwear during a menstrual cycle. In the US, where 16.9 million menstruating women live in poverty, two-thirds cannot afford basic menstrual products. Period poverty has also been associated with mental health issues and urinary tract infections.

Available to play on the website, Bound by Blood was created by Jessica Gates in 2017 and aims to educate players about the reality of period poverty. Users take the character of Beth, a homeless woman who wakes up in her car and realizes that she’s started her period. Players then make a series of choices to try to stay as hygienic as possible in spite of lacking resources such as menstrual products and clean restrooms. There isn’t really a way to “win” the game, and it is instead a peek into the reality of life where period products are inaccessible and how this affects women’s quality of life.

Through these games, players not only gain valuable insights into various aspects of women’s health but also find themselves actively engaged in their own well-being. As developers continue to explore this emerging field, the potential for video games to serve as educational tools and catalysts for change in healthcare remains promising

PS5, PS4 Game Death Stranding Coming Natively to iPhone 15 Pro





PS5 and PS4 console game Death Stranding Director’s Cut is coming natively to the iPhone 15 Pro, demonstrating its power. The entirety of Kojima Productions’ seminal hiking sim, Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil Village, and Assassin’s Creed Mirage, will be available on your phone. Bonkers!

Tech giant: “Continuing Apple’s leadership in smartphone silicon, A17 Pro improves the entire chip, including Apple’s biggest GPU redesign. The new CPU is 10% faster with microarchitectural and design improvements, and the Neural Engine is 2x faster, powering iOS 17 features like autocorrect and Personal Voice.

According to the company, the pro-class GPU is 20% faster and unlocks new experiences with a 6-core design that boosts peak performance and energy efficiency. Hardware-accelerated ray tracing, 4x faster than software-based, gives iPhone 15 Pro smoother graphics and more immersive AR and gaming experiences. The iPhone 15 Pro brings console games to smartphones for the first time.

As with all cutting-edge Apple products, participation is expensive. The iPhone 15 Pro will cost £999/$999 at launch, and the Max model will cost £1,199/$1,199 for a 6.7″ screen. The most basic option only gives you 128GB, so you’ll need more if you want to play Death Stranding on the go.

However, the blurring of standalone consoles and mobile games is fascinating. The success of Genshin Impact, a full-fledged open world, has shown there’s a market for console-like mobile games. It will be interesting to see how Death Stranding performs on this latest iPhone generation.

Launched Redmi Note 12 series: 200MP camera, 210W charging for less than $400





The three phones have similar screens and processors, but they vary in a number of ways.

The Redmi Note series from Xiaomi has historically been the brand’s most well-liked smartphone line, providing excellent value in the entry-level market. The Redmi Note 12 series has now been unveiled by the firm in China.

The Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition, Redmi Note 12 Pro, and Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus are the three phones we truly have this time. A flat 6.67-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED screen, a Mediatek Dimensity 1080 5G processor, and a 16MP selfie camera are features shared by all three devices.

They both have a 3.5mm connector, NFC, IR blaster, and Wi-Fi 6 compatibility, among other things. In contrast, there are a few significant variances.

Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition


The Note 12 Discovery Edition of the Redmi Note 12 has a 200MP HPX primary camera (f/1.65, OIS), making it possibly the most striking model. This camera can capture photographs with a resolution of 200MP, 50MP pixels (using four-in-one binning), or 12.5MP (using 16-in-one binning). Additionally, the phone offers a 2MP macro lens and an 8MP ultrawide camera.

The phone is notably different from its stablemates in that it supports 210W wired charging; according to Xiaomi, a full charge can be achieved in just nine minutes. Although you only get a 4,300mAh battery here, this high wattage comes at the expense of battery capacity.

Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus


Thought a 200MP smartphone with a larger battery would be cool? With the Pro Plus model, you get precisely that. The triple back camera system will have the same 200MP+8MP+2MP resolution as the Discovery Edition.

The Pro Plus variant, on the other hand, chooses a 5,000mAh battery and still blazing-fast 120W cable charging. Xiaomi claims that a full charge should be achieved in about 19 minutes.

Redmi Note 12 Pro


Have no interest in megapixels? The Redmi Note 12 Pro, which adds a 50MP IMX766 primary camera (f/1.88, OIS) in addition to the 8MP+2MP duo, fills this need. The Oppo Find X5 Pro and the Asus Zenfone 9 both feature flagship devices with 50MP sensors similar to this one. We therefore have high hopes that it will also produce acceptable image quality on the Note 12 Pro.

The Pro version additionally includes a 5,000mAh battery with 67W wired speeds. A 100% charge should be expected in a still quick 46 minutes.

Pricing and availability for the Redmi Note 12 series
The base 8GB/256GB variant of the Redmi Note 12 Discovery Edition costs 2,399 yuan (about $332), while the base 6GB/128GB model of the Redmi Note 12 Pro costs 1,699 yuan (about $235). Do you want Pro Plus? The 8GB/256GB variant thus has a starting price of 2,099 yuan (about $290).

Although Xiaomi acknowledged that these phones are currently limited to China, it advised us to “keep tuned” for international announcements. To be fair, the Chinese Redmi Note 11 series was very different from the international variants that debuted a few months later.
