Now, we have the first look at the LeTV smart bike, thanks to a recent leak. Interestingly, the design looks a bit like the Baidu smart bike that we saw earlier. Of course, there are a few differences like the spokes and even the seat placement.

LeTV is launching this new bike in partnership with a bicycle company and Leie. The company will invest 50%, Leie 10% and the unknown bicycle company the rest 40% into this new venture.

Unfortunately, apart from this image, we don’t have anything on the new LeTV smart bike. The company will launch the product as soon as April 2, so expect more details at the event. Also, it is said that the partners to the venture will be revealed on that day.

LeTV is also working on two smartphones at the moment, namely the LeTV X600 and the Snapdragon 810 powered bezelless LeTV X900. We expect both the phones to be unveiled next month itself.

Benchmark: DirectX 12 vs. Mantle & Dx11 on a G3258 CPU, 4790K, Titan X, & 290X

GamersNexus: “Consoles have long touted the phrase ‘close to the metal’ as a means to explain that game developers have fewer software-side obstacles between their application and the hardware. One of the largest obstacles and enablers faced by PC gaming has been DirectX, an API that enables wide-sweeping compatibility (and better backwards compatibility), but also throttles performance with its tremendous overhead.” —> Read More

Here’s Another Teaser From Xiaomi! Guess what this could be?

xiaomi electronic scale

Xiaomi is on roll this year. A few days back, we reported that the company is planning to launch a number of new products to celebrate its fifth anniversary. We have already seen three new teasers from the company till date and now, there’s another teaser which hints at a new smart product which will see the light of day on March 31.

It looks like the company will focus on smart home products this year. We have increasingly heard rumors about products such as a smart water purifier, a 55-inch smart TV, both of which will most likely be announced on Tuesday. Now, this particular teaser comes with the letters ‘TZC’ on top. While we have no clue what this means, the image below gives us an idea about the product.

Below, you can see a rectangular device with the numbers 0.1, 0.2 etc written on top and an arrow at the center. From the picture, it looks like the new product will be a smart electronic weighing scale. There are similar products in the market right now, and most come with Wi-Fi connectivity so that the information is easily available on multiple devices. The arrow at the center could be an indication of the target to maintain or reduce weight.

We are just two days away from the celebration event and hence, we don’t have to wait too long to see what Xiaomi has in store for us. With one day left, we expect another product to be teased tomorrow, taking the total to five new possible announcements on its fifth anniversary.

Anyways, what do you think TZC means?
