Realme V20 5G launched with Dimesity 700SoC
Realme has expanded its China-exclusive lineup of smartphones with the latest- Realme V20 5G. The latest smartphone offers a MediaTek Dimensity processor with 5G-connectivity. The smartphone is the expansion of its popular and stylish V-series that has never made it outside of Realme’s home market.
Reportedly, V20 5G comes with a dual-camera configuration at the back. The alignment of the camera looks very similar to the recently launched Oppo Reno-series phones. Interestingly, the smartphone was to be launched under the name Realme V21, but the company seemingly had different plans. Also, it is launched in the offline market of China, so it’s really difficult to find it listed online for now. As per the price, the Realme V20 starts at CNY 999 (INR 11,596) in China. Since Realme has never launched V-series phones outside of China, the V20 is also unlikely to arrive elsewhere. The Realme V20 is also available in two gorgeous colours: Ink Cloud Black and Star Blue.
Facebook’s Messenger brings a new calling tab for all users
Messenger has started rolling out a calling tab on its app for all the users. The feature will be available to some selected users at first since it is being developed in phases. The users who are getting access to it can actually see the option coming below on the app’s screen between the people and chats tab. On rolling out the feature to the users, Meta added that “the decision to integrate the feature for calls on the Facebook Messenger app’s main screen was taken because of the substantial increase in video and audio calls conducted through another user’s chat window.”
The latest development in the call section placement is to ensure that the users can easily use it on both Android and iOS. The feature is somewhere similar to WhatsApp as the users now don’t have to reach the right-top side of the guard. They can simply continue with their discussion and start a call by tapping on a button.
