On the front is a 20MP shooter.It includes an in-display fingerprint sensor, a 4000mAh battery and runs on Qualcomm’s gaming-focused Snapdragon 855 Plus processor.The phone is priced CNY2,899 ($414) and is equipped with Douyin, a Chinese version of TikTok which can be accessed with a single swipe.ByteDance had been tipped to make a move on the smartphone sector since acquiring patents and recruiting some staff from Chinese vendor Smartisan.The move could prove risky for ByteDance given other major internet companies have enjoyed little success with similar ventures.In 2013, a joint effort between Facebook and HTC, for example, was shelved after failing to impress in international markets, and Amazon received a lukewarm reception for its Fire phone.

Chase Elliott misses qualifying after No. 24 fails inspection

first_imgRELATED: Elliott still ‘pretty frustrated’ | Starting lineup | Full Texas scheduleFORT WORTH, Texas – Chase Elliott did not make it through qualifying inspection at Texas Motor Speedway Friday evening and will start his No. 24 Hooters Chevrolet from near the rear of the field in 34th for Sunday’s AAA Texas 500 (2 p.m. ET on NBCSN, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) as a result.Elliott was one of seven cars — also including Joey Logano and Matt Kenseth — that didn’t turn a qualifying lap because they didn’t pass inspection in time.While obviously disappointed in having to start from the rear on Sunday, Elliott was still hopeful, even confident, that he will be able to make his way forward. Perhaps challenge for the win.“As you all know, qualifying well is important for stage points so I think for us now it puts the emphasis on having to compete for a win,’’ Elliott said. “It keeps it simple. [April winner] Jimmie [Johnson] did it in the spring and I think if we have our car driving good tomorrow afternoon, it’s definitely doable.’’In fact, it’s the second consecutive time Elliott’s car did not pass qualifying here at Texas. He was among nine drivers forced to start the race from the rear.“I don’t know why teams fail qualifying tech here more than other places,’’ Elliott said. “I think if you get your car driving good tomorrow, you can pass. Jimmie proved that here in the spring. I think it’s doable. We’ll see.“Everybody’s pushing it. You don’t want to get in position you’re not qualifying. Everybody’s doing everything they can to go fast.’’Elliott is currently eighth in the playoff rankings — 26 points behind fourth place Kevin Harvick with two races remaining to set the four-driver championship grid for the Homestead-Miami Speedway finale.last_img read more

Fizik Tempo Powerstrap R5 road shoes return to lightweight velcro straps – Updated

first_imgThe latest performance road shoes from Fizik – the Tempo Powerstrap R5 – are a return to basics. While most companies have reached back to laces for the fully retro look & light adjustability, the Italian shoe & saddle company doesn’t go so far back in time – just returning to velcro straps.Fizik Tempo Powerstrap R5 affordable road shoesThe Tempo Powerstrap R5 isn’t quite a top-level road shoe for Fizik. That R5 designation suggests a mid level performance road shoe. And these get the same carbon reinforced nylon shoe as the standard Tempo Overcurve R5s which use a single Boa closure. But the new two-strap crossing Powerstrap closure does shave weight off the standard R5 and brings the price down as well.Fizik Tempo Powerstrap R5 Tech DetailsThe new shoes are the first to unveil the new Powerstrap Velcro strap design, but are rumored to not be the only shoes to get the new closure. Instead of a simple strap closure that pulls the two sides of the shoe together like you usually get in a velcro strap shoe, the Fizik Powerstrap traces back and forth across the forefoot pulling together more like you get with dial closure shoes. Then the upper strap offers more conventional tightening over the midfoot.The rest of the shoes construction is shared with the other R5 family, including the same flexible perforated synthetic upper.Of course even with wide, quality velcro, straps are cheaper than dials & wires. So these new Tempo Powerstrap R5 shoes sell for just 119€, down 30€ from the Boa equipped R5. That reinforced road sole is pretty isn’t overly light too, so these weigh in at 499g per shoe to deliver performance stiffness (more than twice the weight of Fizik’s top R1 shoes, weird?).UPDATE: OK, so much like we suspected, that 499g weight is actually for the pair, making these a nice light, affordable option. Fizik for some reason quotes the weight on these shoes for the pair, instead of per shoe like most of their lineup. Anyway, good news for anyone looking to buy a simple, affordable, light road shoe!The new shoes are available in all black, white & black, navy & black, and red & black. They come in wholes sizes 36-48, and half sizes from 37-47. Get them now direct from Fizik or through regular retail channels.Fizik.comlast_img read more

Powered by Firework Manchester City has been one of the most in form teams in Europe’s top leagues this season and were hailed as favourites against a struggling Manchester United side, and the Citizens lived up to that label with a comfortable 3-1 win against their neighbours at the Etihad.Advertisement Manchester United’s confidence after 3 straight wins, including an impressive comeback victory against Juventus in Turin, was completely shattered by the end of the 90 minutes. City scored the opening goal via David Silva in the 12th minute of the game. United’s recent record of winning matches despite being a goal down might have given them some confidence despite the deficit but City doubled their lead in the 48th minute when Sergio Aguero scored his 8th goal of the campaign, making him the current top scorer of the league.Advertisement United got a goal back through an Anthony Martial penalty which might have sparked some hope of a comeback victory like last season, but the man behind that victory, Paul Pogba, was not even on the bench for the Red Devils in this game. Iilkay Gundogan finished the game off in the dying minutes to restore City’s two goal advantage as Pep Guardiola’s side maintain a 2 point lead at the top of the table.United face Crystal Palace at home while City face West Ham away next in the Premier League.Advertisement Read also :Real Betis stun Barcelona despite a brace from Lionel MessiMkhitaryan late equalizer helps Gunners salvage a draw against Wolves Advertisementlast_img read more

Powered by Firework  Advertisement The latest edition of SmackDown LIVE brought about an unlikely turn of events heading into Survivor Series. So instead of waiting for the climax, let’s dive straight into the main event:Advertisement Daniel Bryan crowned new WWE ChampionIt happened once again. For the second consecutive year, the WWE Championship changed hands prior to Survivor Series as Daniel Bryan beat AJ Styles for his fourth title reign.Advertisement It all started with a war of words between the two competitors that ultimately led to an all-out brawl before both had to be separated by WWE Officials. In an evenly contested match, Styles went to the top rope to land a Phenomenal Forearm however, Bryan, evaded it and instead, the former WWE Champion collided with the referee.Daniel took advantage of the situation and struck AJ with a low blow followed by a running knee and grabbed the pinfall victory. An unexpected heel turn from Bryan also resulted in him earning the opportunity to face Brock Lesnar in a Champion v Champion match this Sunday.Becky Lynch ruled out for Survivor SeriesThe invasion on the Monday Night RAW Women’s Division led to Becky Lynch suffering a broken nose in the carnage and consequently, it was confirmed this Tuesday night that the SmackDown Women’s Champion has not been cleared to compete at Survivor Series.However, Lynch remained confident and insisted that she would still kick Rousey’s ass with a broken face. The Man then shifted her attention to picking her replacement for this Sunday and after overseeing every superstar of the SmackDown Women’s roster in the ring, Becky hand picked Charlotte Flair to face the RAW Women’s Champion.The two old bitter enemies put aside their past rivalries aside and stood united for the Blue brand as Charlotte will square up against Ronda Rousey in a dream match for the WWE Universe.Jeff Hardy vs Andrade Cien AlmasAndrade Cien Almas began strongly off the gates following a series of vicious attacks on his opponent. The Enigmatic Jeff Hardy, however, regrouped and got himself back in the match but couldn’t capitalize on his opportunity to finish the match.Almas too had his moments and was about to hit his signature Hammerlock DDT but Hardy countered it with the Twist of Fate and gave himself the opening to land the Swanton Bomb that secured him the win and also a spot as the final member of the SmackDown Survivor Series team.Rey Mysterio vs The MizRey Mysterio clashed against SmackDown Survivor Series team Captain The Miz with his place on the line. The Miz took the upper hand early on as he locked Mysterio in a submission move although in the latter stages, Rey was able to hit the 619 but Miz dodged the frog splash as he got his knees up and rolled him up for a two count.The A-Lister was frustrated which provided Mysterio with the chance to roll him up for the win and keep his spot on the SmackDown squad intact.The former WWE World Champion’s celebration was cut short as Randy Orton snuck up from behind but Mysterio was able to avoid The Viper’s attacks and instead, Orton flattened The Miz with an RKO.The Usos unveil SD Survivor Series Tag Team lineupThe Usos and The New Day will be joined by The Colons (Epico and Primo), Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson and Sanity for their match against the RAW Tag Teams this Sunday at Survivor Series.The Bar and Big Show vs The New DayBoth teams had a string of near falls but with the match speeding up, Big Show’s presence was the defining point as he eliminated the threat of Xavier Woods.Kofi Kingston was left shorthanded and the numbers game caught up as Big Show landed a knockout punch to Kofi in mid-air and grabbed the W for his team.
