Startup Weekend

Startup Weekend, a 54-hour long event which happens in more than 700 cities and has already created 13,000+ startups in the line. The weekend event is meant to gather developers, marketers, product managers, and startup enthusiasts to boost the spirit of Entrepreneurship through various means including technology.

Powered by Google for Entrepreneurs, Startup Weekend allocates a platform for entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs to test whether their ideas look good with ‘feasible’ label or not. Half of the weekenders at the event are of technical (or design) background, and the rest have entrepreneurial background. Linear to that, the exclusive weekend is globally partnered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), Coca-Cola, Go.Co, and of-course my favorite Google.

Kicking-off the open mic pitches on Friday, the participants express their respective ideas and designs onboard and rouse other attendees to come and join their team for a Minimal Viable Product (MVP), at-least for them. After initializing the team, the weekenders start working on it to make their startup a real game-changer.

The LEAN Startup methodologies, idea validation and customer development gets the spotlight under the mentorship of the team’s respective mentors (experts) on Saturday and Sunday, as the final presentation (demo) of their Startup goes live on Sunday evening. During that Sunday evening, Startup prototypes are reviewed and arbitrated by the panel of judges with their valuable feedback and more.

The event protocol is same for all 700+ cities where Startup Weekend is happening, or is scheduled to happen.

OnePlus 5T Launch Event

OnePlus has revealed the launch date for its upcoming OnePlus 5T flagship smartphone. The Chinese phone maker will be unveiling the 5T, successor to the five-month-old OnePlus 5, on November 16 this month.

What’s interesting here is that OnePlus will be hosting a live keynote event in Brooklyn, New York. If you’ve been keeping up with OnePlus stuff since early days, you probably know that the company keeps experimenting with product launches. It has performed pre-recorded and virtual reality product launches in the past, but for the first time ever OnePlus is doing a physical product launch event, which you can attend in-person. Of course, you’ll have to be in Brooklyn on your own, even though tickets to the OnePlus 5T launch event are just $40.

In a post on the company’s forum, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei announced the news of OnePlus 5T launch. Pei wrote about the OnePlus fan community, and the efforts that are put into making a OnePlus device.

As many of you know, our team has been hard at work on the OnePlus 5T. But our products aren’t built by us alone, the OnePlus community has played a key role. Feedback from our users led us to develop one of the industry’s most powerful video stabilization solutions, as well as one of its most accurate sRGB display calibrations.

We stepped up community involvement in our product development since launching our Open Beta program back in August 2016. Over 15 thousand users have contributed to this program, by sharing bug reports, suggesting new features, and helping us optimize existing ones.

Our devices are always built together with you. That’s why we’re inviting you to “A New View”, the upcoming OnePlus 5T launch event. We can’t wait to tell you all about the new features and improvements that we have been working on.

Tickets to the OnePlus 5T launch event in Brooklyn, New York are now available to purchase for just $40, while those who can’t make it to Brooklyn can watch the event livestream on November 16 at 11am ET.

Pei also shared that the sales for OnePlus 5T will begin on November 21 in North America and Europe, followed by China on December 1. And if you’re in India, you can get your hands on the handset on November 21 through a flash sale, while official sales begin a week later.

Xiaomi teases Mi Mix 2 for September 11th launch

Mi Product Launch

Xiaomi has begun building the hype for its upcoming Mi phone, which is to debut next week, a day prior Apple’s Special Event.

The Chinese phone maker recently announced its first Android One smartphone, in partnership with Google, but looks like Xiaomi is on fire this month. The company teased its upcoming near bezel-less smartphone on Twitter today. And it’s none other than the next-generation Mi Mix — we just can’t tell if it’ll be named Mi Mix 2 or something even better.

The teaser image for next-generation Mi Mix or more likely Mi Mix 2 highlights the bezel-less design on the upper part of the handset, while the lower half isn’t fully shown. We expect the design accent to be similar to the original Mi Mix (with further refinements, of course).

The 2017 Mi Product Launch will take place on Monday, September 11th in China. It will begin at 2PM CST, and will be available to watch online.

Update: Xiaomi today shared a new photo of its upcoming Mi Mix 2. This time around, the image (posted above) gives an exact idea of the phone’s bezel — it’s even more bezel-less than its predecessor.

Apple iPhone 8 Event

Apple today sent out invites to the press for the next iPhone event next month. Since it’s almost September, the next-generation iPhone will be unveiled at the event. The next-generation, 10th anniversary iPhone will see the light of the world on September 12th at Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park, the new Cupertino campus.

The event invite reads “Let’s meet at our place,” which indeed is to highlight the new Cupertino campus and Steve Jobs Theater, of course, as it will be the first Apple event hosted at the Steve Jobs Theater. The event will kick off at 10AM PT, as all Apple events usually do.

Sharing the stage will be Apple’s latest Software Updates — iOS 11, macOS High Sierra, watchOS 4, and tvOS 11 — which the fruit-company previewed at its World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) back in June. Plus, there’s also some expectations for an updated Apple Watch, and Apple TV hardware. However, the show stealer will be … iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, or iPhone 8. We just can’t say yet.

Are you SuperEXCITED? Stay tuned!
