News Apple iPhone Update : Latest iPhone 6s Leak Shows Off Force Touch Technology in Fully Assembled Display

New photos revealing how Apple's latest innovation could be implemented in the hotly anticipated iPhone 6s have leaked online, following supply-side reports that Apple has ramped up production of the upcoming smartphone's new displays.
The latest leaks show images of what is purported to be the iPhone 6s display outfitted with new components that will enable Force Touch in the upcoming handset.

Posted by Chinese repair firm Geekbar on Weibo and first spotted by Steven Hemmerstoffer of Nowhereelse.fr, the images show what could be the front and back views of the iPhone 6s front panel with the new LCD components.

Although the pictures show the same rounded edges of the glass display as seen in the iPhone 6 and the speaker and the front camera appear to be in the same position, there are a couple of notable changes that point to the incorporation of Force Touch into the new displays.

First off is a rectangular cutout on the upper center of the screen, through which a small, rectangular component can be seen. Geekbar does not mention what this new component is, but Apple Insider speculates that it could be a grounding insert.

Another major departure can be seen along the sides of the display's backing, where it appears that the display uses rivets instead of the usual screws and clips to stay in place. There also appears small, black dots on the sides, which are not found on the earlier iPhone's displays. Again, Geekbar makes no mention of what these dots could be, but they might be part of the implementation of Force Touch.

Force Touch is a pressure-sensitive Apple technology that allows a device to distinguish between different types of touch. A light tap and a deep press require different amounts of pressure, and being able to tell the difference between both can give the iPhone 6s added functionality not available in previous models.

Only the Apple Watch and the newest MacBooks unveiled by Apple earlier this year have Force Touch-enabled displays, but Apple is expected to add the new feature to its next smartphone, which is highly believed to be the iPhone 6s expected for an official unveiling in September.

The latest leak comes following reports from South Korean news outlets that Apple has significantly increased display production for the iPhone 6s to meet an expected demand for 36 to 40 million new iPhones in the third quarter.

News Microsoft Windows Update : The Operating Systemels Evolution Of Microsoft Windows Through Out The Years

Microsoft Windows has seen ten major versions since its first release in 1985. Over 30 years, Windows evolved to look very different while retaining a degree of familiarity.
The evolution of Windows is both a reflection on computing power of that generation and the dominant input devices, be it a mouse and keyboard earlier and a touchscreen now.

Here’s a brief look at the history of Windows:

Windows 1
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/7/Windows-1.jpg

The original. This is where it all began. The original Windows 1 was released in November 1985 and was Microsoft's first attempt at a graphical user interface.

Windows 1 ran on top of the then dominant operating system, Microsoft's DOS, which relied on command-line input. Windows 1 was one of the first software to heavily rely on mouse control before the mouse was a common input device.

Windows 2
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/7/Windows-2.jpg

Arriving two years after the release of its predecessor in December 1987, Windows 2 introduced features like the ability to minimise or maximise windows and allowing different windows to overlap each other. Windows 2 introduced the control panel, where system settings and configuration options resided. It also introduced the world to Microsoft Word and Excel.

Windows 3
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/7/Windows-3.jpg

Windows 3 launched in 1990 and was the first version of the OS to see widespread success and be considered a challenger to Apple’s Macintosh and the Commodore Amiga graphical user interfaces, coming pre-installed on computers from PC-compatible manufacturers.

It introduced the ability to run MS-DOS programmes in windows, which brought multitasking to legacy programmes, and supported 256 colours, bringing a more modern, colourful look to the interface.

It also introduced the world to one the most iconic timesink ever created, Solitaire.

Windows 95
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/7/Windows-95.jpg

Windows 95 launched in August 1995 and brought with it the start button and start menu.

Its big push was “plug and play” – connect a peripheral and the operating system finds the appropriate drivers for it and makes it work. That did not pan out as expected and led to millions of “plug and pray” jokes.

Internet Explorer too made its debut on Windows 95.

Windows 98
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/8/Windows-98.jpg

Released in June 1998, Windows 98 built on Windows 95 and came with Internet Explorer 4, Outlook Express, Microsoft Chat and eventually Windows Media Player.

It introduced the back and forward navigation buttons and the address bar in Windows Explorer, among other things.

USB support was much improved in Windows 98 and led to its widespread adoption, including USB hubs and USB mice.

Windows ME
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/7/Windows-ME.jpg

Released in September 2000, Windows Millennium Edition (ME) was the last Windows to be based on MS-DOS, and the last in the Windows 9x line.

Considered the worst version of Windows ever, ME was the consumer-aimed operating system twinned with Windows 2000 that aimed at the enterprise market. It introduced some important concepts to consumers, including more automated system recovery tools.

IE 5.5, Windows Media Player 7 and Windows Movie Maker all made their appearance for the first time. Auto-complete also appeared in Windows Explorer, but the operating system was notorious for being buggy, failing to install properly and being generally poor.

Windows 2000
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/8/Windows-2000.jpg

The enterprise twin of ME, Windows 2000 was released in February 2000 and was based on Microsoft’s business-oriented system Windows NT that later became the basis for the much more successful Windows XP.

Windows 2000 was the first time that Microsoft offered automatic updates and it was the first Windows to support hibernation.

Windows XP
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/7/Windows-XP.jpg

Released in October 2001, Windows XP was a product of a Microsoft at the peak of its powers.

The start menu and task bar got a visual overhaul, bringing the familiar green start button, blue task bar and vista wallpaper, along with various shadow and other visual effects.

Windows XP was the longest running Microsoft operating system, seeing three major updates and support up until April 2014 – 13 years after its original release. Windows XP was still used on an estimated 430 million PCs when it was discontinued.

But its huge popularity turned out to be a boon for hackers and criminals, who mercilessly exploited its flaws, especially in Internet Explorer.

Windows Vista
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/7/Windows-Vista.jpg

Windows XP was replaced by Windows Vista in January 2007. Vista updated the look and feel of Windows with focus on transparent elements and search and security. Its development was long and troubled, with ambitious elements abandoned in the final release.

It was buggy and burdened the user with hundreds of requests for app permissions under “User Account Control” – the outcome of XP’s security problems. It also ran slowly on older computers despite them being deemed as “Vista Ready”.

Windows Media Player 11 and IE 7 debuted, along with Windows Defender, an anti-spyware programme. Vista included speech recognition, Windows DVD Maker and Photo Gallery, and was the first Windows to be distributed on DVD.

Windows 7
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/7/Windows-7.jpg

Windows 7 was released in October 2009 following the lukewarm response to the buggy Windows Vista. It was intended to fix all the problems and criticism faced by Vista, with slight tweaks to its appearance and a concentration on user-friendly features and less “dialogue box overload”.

It was faster, more stable and easier to use, becoming the operating system most users and businesses would upgrade to from Windows XP, forgoing Vista entirely.

Windows 8
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/7/Windows-8.jpg

Released in October 2012, Windows 8 was Microsoft’s most radical overhaul of the Windows interface. In an effort to bring Windows into the post-PC world dominated by touchscreen smartphones and tablets, Microsoft ditched the start button and start menu for a more touch-friendly start screen.

The new tiled interface saw programme icons and live tiles, which displayed information normally associated with “widgets”, replaced the lists of programmes and icons. A desktop was still included, which resembled Windows 7.

The radical overhaul led to a fallout with loyal Windows users. Microsoft's attempted to walk a fine line between touchscreen support and the traditional mouse and keyboard and somewhat failed on both fronts.

Windows 10
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/8/Win10.jpg

Released on July 29, 2015, Windows 10 is a sharp U-turn from its predecessor, bringing back the start menu and more balance to traditional desktop computer users.

It was released as a free upgrade to all users with legitimate copies of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

A major feature called Continuum introduced the ability to switch between a keyboard and mouse mode and a tablet mode, for those computers like the Surface Pro 3 with a detachable keyboard.

In an effort to recapture the web browser market it ceded to Google Chrome, Windows 10 comes with a new browser called Edge, which allows users to annotate web pages, save them to read later, or select "read mode" to strip out adverts and sidebars.

Windows 10 comes with Microsoft's virtual personal assistant, Cortana, which pops up with notifications and suggestions, and learns the user's preferences over time. Cortana responds to voice commands similar to Apple's Siri and has been touted as one of the core features of Windows 10.

News Update Smart Phones War : OnePlus 2 vs Asus Zenfone 2: Which is a better buy

OnePlus 2 64GB model is all set to enter the Indian market on August 11 and is likely to be on the wish list of anyone looking for a flagship smartphone at mid-range price.

This segment already has one contender, Asus ZenFone 2, which is the world’s first smartphone with 4GB RAM. But now so does OnePlus 2. Similarly, while ZenFone 2 supports fast-charging, OnePlus 2 boasts of fingerprint sensor.

So, the fight is pretty tough between the two smartphones.

Here we take a look at all the key aspects to help you choose between OnePlus 2 and Asus ZenFone 2 and make the final decision…

One of the unique aspects of Zenfone 2’s design is the placement of the Volume keys, which are placed on the back in hopes that it will be equally convenient for both left- as well as right-handed users to access them; however, we find the standard design – where the keys are placed on the edges – to be more convenient.
Moreover, the Power button is placed at the top, and it becomes rather difficult to reach the Power button each time you want to turn the screen on or off as Zenfone 2 is a pretty big smartphone.

On the other hand, we like the OnePlus 2 design more as the device is more pocketable and easier to wield due to its smaller size. Moreover, the positioning of hardware keys is pretty convenient even for people with small hands. The metal frame on the sides gives it a more premium feel compared to Zenfone 2 as well.

When it comes to materials of construction, once again OnePlus 2’s sandstone back looks better than Zenfone 2’s plastic back panel with brushed metal finish (available in 6 colours). Moreover, you can buy four custom back covers for the new OnePlus smartphone for added personalization: Rosewood, Kevlar, Bamboo and Black Apricot.

However, Asus is launching a new version of ZenFone 2 in a few weeks that will have a diamond pattern back panel for design-conscious buyers. This new version will have the same features as the standard ZenFone 2 and cost Rs 1,000 more at Rs 23,999.

Both OnePlus 2 and Zenfone 2 have 5.5-inch IPS screens with Full HD (1080x1920p) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. While Asus has not revealed the brightness levels, One Plus says that its new smartphone sports one of the brightest display panels in the industry at 600nits.

However, in our usage we found both smartphones to have similar brightness levels, likely due to the rather warm colours. Nevertheless, the OnePlus 2 display is a little brighter in comparison and delivers better sunlight legibility, as the image shows.

When it comes to viewing angles and colour saturation, both smartphones are almost at the same level.

News Sony New Handset Update: Bezel-Free Sony Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 Leak In New High Definition Images Available

Sony is scheduled to announce the new Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 in the next couple of days. Prior to that announcement, newly leaked images were spotted online, giving us early glimpses of the handsets' design features.
The leak comes from the Russian tech site Hi.Tech.Mail.ru. The original post, according to 9to5google.com, was time stamped for Aug. 3 and had now been taken down.

The upcoming C5 Ultra, as the name suggests, is billed as the successor to the 5.5-inch Xperia C4. The "ultra" moniker could refer to a number of things. First among them is the C5 Ultra's bigger display of 6 inches compared to the C4's. The next thing to consider is its upgraded battery size of 2,930 mAh which is bigger than the C4's 2,600 mAh battery. Other major comparisons include the C5 Ultra's 13MP wide-angle front-facing camera versus the C4's 5MP and the C5 Ultra's ultra-thin 0.8 mm bezel versus the C4's bezel measurement of 2.2 mm.

A few days ago, Tech Times reported on a leaked manual of the Xperia C5 Ultra, which confirms the handset's bezel-free display. The report also noted the handset's rear and front cameras to both have a flash.

The second image in question is purported to be the Xperia M5, which is reminiscent of the Sony Xperia Z3. Unlike the huge C5 Ultra, the M5 exudes a certain level of familiarity that makes it blend easily with the other Sony devices that are now available on the market.

The Xperia M5 features a 5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display and also sports a 13MP camera on the front and rear. It runs an octa-core Media Tek Helio X10 processor and has a RAM of 3GB, internal storage of 16GB and a microSD slot. It also boasts an IP65/IP68 dust and water resistance certification.

Among the two, the Xperia C5 Ultra will probably get more attention because of its bigger display and the 0.8mm wide bezels. Other notable features include a RAM of 2GB, internal storage of 16GB and an octa-core Media Tek Mt6752 processor.

The Xperia C5 Ultra is expected to retail at around $350 while the Xperia M5 will be somewhere near the $400 price point.

News Drone Tech Update : This Drone Delivers Beer: ​Flytrex Launches World's First Consumer Delivery UAV

Flytrex, a maker of drone tech for the consumer market, has launched a new drone designed to deliver items including -- if the promotional photos are an accurate representation -- a cold beer. Note to editors: I think I finally get what the drone hype is all about.

"Delivery is one of the possible things you can do with Sky, and it's the thing that makes the most noise," Flytrex co-founder Yariv Bash tells me over the phone when I bring up the photo, "but we're also talking about a cloud-connected drone with web API."

Flytrex has been around for about a year and this is its first foray into ready-to-fly drone hardware. Bash is also a founder of SpaceIL, an Israeli nonprofit that's competing in the Google Lunar X Prize and has raised more than $50M. He and a friend began playing around with drones and had the idea of trying to gamify the experience. They came up with an idea to create a kind of black box for drones. "You could use it to upload data, see where it's been, what the altitude was," says Bash. "There wasn't anything on the market that you could just plug into your drone."

The black box became Flytrex's first product, and the next logical step was to create a real-time version of the device. The live product became known as Live 3G and is a common add-on for hardcore drone enthusiasts. "With iPhone or Android you can see where you are in real time. So you can fly drones a bit further down the road than line-of-site." Many newer drones offer similar capabilities off-the-shelf. It's a fast-moving market, after all. But the Core 3G remains a robust add-on and is still a big seller for the company.

Flytrex's real breakthrough, though, was realizing that to properly gamify the experience of flying a drone, they had to build a community around flying. With the black box technology sending data to their servers, they decided to start issuing flying badges for various feats -- a badge for reaching a certain altitude, one for flying a minimum distance, etc. Drone enthusiasts took to the idea, and the company embraced an emerging community by logging completed missions on its site and issuing challenges to users.
"We have a lot of interaction with users. It's really become the core part of what we do."

As Bash tells it (he's a good storyteller) he and his friend left the house to fly a drone one day when they realized they had forgotten something. With drone delivery a topic of much speculation in the logistics sector, the pair wondered what it would take to build a drone that could return to the house and carry the item back. Then they started pondering how they would design such a drone from the ground up.

"We thought, 'We have the infrastructure, we've sold thousands of these black box devices, we have users all over the world, why not build a drone designed around the cloud?"

The company is touting the Flytrex Sky, therefore, as more than just a beer delivery device. "It's the first cloud-connected drone," says Bash. The company has created apps to control the drone. One interesting feature, which is geared toward delivery, is the ability to send the drone to a pre-determined location where another user can take over control with their phone, guiding the drone in for a precise landing. The device essentially asks the receiver for permission to land, so there's no loss of control.

The drone can fly about six miles with a light payload, like a smartphone, and can hover about half-an-hour. That means it can easily exceed line-of-sight limits set by agencies such as the FAA in the U.S., which are nonetheless fundamentally difficult to enforce. ("We always tell users to obey all local laws," says Bash.) The maximum payload is about three pounds.

While it's fun to joke about a drone serving as a beer delivery device, Flytrex is turning to its community of users to unlock the real potential of a sub-$600 delivery drone.

"We've already been approached by a few guys in Africa who are thinking of using it to transfer medicine between villages. It's perfect, because there is excellent cell coverage in Africa, which has few overhead phone lines, and medicine is so lightweight."

That sounds like a very worthy use of the technology. In the meantime, I'll be waiting for my flying beer.

News Google Glass Update : New Google Glass For Businesses Will Reportedly Attach To Other Eyewear

The next edition of Google Glass will target enterprises and feature an attachable design, a news report suggests, shedding new light on rumors that have been circulating over the past several months.

The device will feature a curved, rectangular form factor much the way the first, consumer-focused Glass edition did, according to an article in the Wall Street Journal. It will differ from that version, however, in that it will reportedly feature a button-and-hinge system rather than a fixed frame, making it attachable to different kinds of eyewear.
Google aims to have the device in use by this fall at companies in healthcare, manufacturing and energy, and is already distributing it to software developers creating applications for that purpose, the WSJ reported on Thursday, citing anonymous sources familiar with the situation.

A new consumer version is also in the works, but it reportedly won’t appear for at least a year.

Google didn’t immediately respond to a request to comment for this story.

The original $1,500 Google Glass version is widely considered to have been released before it was ready for consumer use, and it encountered a strong backlash over privacy concerns.

Expected in the new, enterprise version are a faster Intel processor and improved wireless connectivity. An external battery pack connects magnetically to the device, the latest news suggests, promising better battery life than what was offered by its predecessor.

Finally, a longer and thinner prism display is adjustable both vertically and horizontally, the WSJ said, offering improved flexibility.

“The new Google Glass story sounds much better the second time around,” said wireless and telecom analyst Jeff Kagan.

Consumers will probably become more comfortable with such technology eventually, but “it will take a while before the average person gets to that point,” Kagan added. In the meantime, “taking Glass to certain industries to start sounds like a much better idea.”

News OnePlus2 Handset Update : OnePlus 2 Invite Registrations Cross One Million Mark In Mere 72 Hours

OnePlus launched the much talked about OnePlus 2 in the world’s first virtual reality launch event on July 27. The Chinese company has promoted over a million people to register for the new device in a mere 72 hours. At the launch event, the company had stated that it sold 1.5 million OnePlus One smartphones since its launch. In comparison, then new phone has already received such a huge number of registrations or an invite to purchase the latest OnePlus 2.

OnePlus will be hosting a pop-up event in New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, Berlin, Milan, New Delhi, Bangalore, and Jakarta on July 31 where fans can experience the new OnePlus 2 smartphone.

The 64GB OnePlus 2 will be available for purchase with an invite in India starting August 11, exclusively on Amazon. The 16GB OnePlus 2 with 3GB LPPDR4 RAM will be available later this year.  The company has also taken out the logo from the front. It sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display. As promised, the smartphone also comes with a fingerprint scanner and USB Type-C port. The fingerprint scanner is faster than the iPhone TouchID and lets you save up to five fingerprints, says OnePlus.

On the camera front, it comes with a 13-megapixel snapper. It also gets a new camera and a new solution that allows you to take 50MP photos and there’s also the slow motion mode. It comes powered by Snapdragon 810 coupled with 4GB of RAM.
It runs OxygenOS, and says it isn’t your pure Android. It comes with some significant changes. It allows you drastically change the look and feel of the device with a single switch. The colour mode will let you select custom accents colours, or even use dark mode. The OnePlus 2 has a 3300mAh battery.

A recent report suggests that after the launch of OnePlus 2, the company plans to offer a price drop for the OnePlus One. In conversation with Business Today, Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus-India confirmed that the company will not discontinue any storage variant of the OnePlus One. However, he stated that consumers can expect a price drop for the OnePlus One in the coming days.

News Apple New Handset Update : Apple 'iPhone 6s' And 'iPhone 6s Plus' Leak Suggests Upcoming Device Will Still Sport A Protruding Camera

The next-generation Apple smartphones dubbed iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus may sport a protruding camera as found in the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, per rumors.

The protruding camera of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6s Plus resulted in many customer complaints as users were unable to lay their handset flat on the table as the camera lens sticks out by around a millimeter.

"This protruding camera is going to drive my OCD and anxiety riddled brain mad immediately. I have never used a case but I have a feeling I will have to succumb to one this time around in order to balance it out," complained a Reddit user. "I have always liked how the iPhone is sleek and simple, the protruding camera lens is a bit annoying."
Experts believed that Apple will make slight design tweaks to the next-generation iPhones so that the camera lens does not protrude. However, a report from French website Nowhereelse leaked images of the camera rings that will be used in the upcoming iPhones, which suggests that Apple will not make changes to the design of the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus and customers will have to bear with the protruding camera.

The placement of the camera on the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus may remained unchanged but the French website reveals that the Apple smartphones will get a 12MP iSight camera and a 5MP FaceTime camera.

The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus are equipped with an 8MP iSight camera and a 1.2MP front-facing camera, which has not changed since the release of iPhone 4s.

The "S" models of the iPhones do not get major changes but rumors claim that the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus may come running on a faster A9 processor and 2GB of RAM. The new iPhones are also estimated to get a new NFC chip, better voice quality and a new touch display.

The existing iPhones are available in three colors options: Space Gray, Gold and Silver. Rumors suggest that Apple may launch the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus in rose gold color as well, which may attract more customers. However, it remains to be seen if the protruding camera in the upcoming iPhones will deter customers from buying the handsets.

The production of the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus are said to be underway and the handsets are expected to be launched in September. Customers will have to wait another few weeks before they can get a glimpse of the next-gen iPhones.

News Mobile Technology Update : Google Trials LTE In Project Loon’s Balloons Over Brazil

A year on from firing up its first wi-fi balloons in New Zealand, Google has flown its first LTE-equipped balloons in a remote town in Brazil.

Project Loon may have been overshadowed by Google's more recent $500m aerial manoeuvre and speculation it will launch a constellation of satellites . But the project which started in New Zealand nearly a year ago and aims to deliver broadband to underserved parts of the world is making progress.
Google announced on Monday it had launched an LTE-equipped balloon on the rural outskirts of Campo Maior in the north east of Brazil, connecting a local school Linoca Gayoso to the internet for the first time.

The community currently doesn't have a broadband or mobile service, which means locals rely on a few locations where a weak mobile signal can be found — including up in trees or next to soccer goalposts.

The addition of LTE to the balloons brings several benefits, according to Google. Markets where 4G LTE has launched know it for higher speed mobile broadband, but in Loon it serves a different purpose. It could allow Google to provide an internet signal directly to mobile phones as well as deliver services over longer distances than wi-fi.

(The radios used in Google's New Zealand launch operated on unlicensed spectrum in the 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz bands used in wi-fi.)

The other benefit of LTE is that carriers are already using it on their networks. "This means that when Loon partners with telcos to deliver last-mile connectivity, we will be able to use the telecommunications companies' existing infrastructure, which will allow us to deliver service to rural and remote users seamlessly and quickly," Google said.
In its Brazilian LTE Loon trial, Google worked with two local operators — Vivo and Telebr├ís — to essentially extend the reach of their respective 3G and backhaul networks.

"Working with both partners allowed the team to confirm that Loon could extend LTE coverage from a 3G wireless zone or from a fibre backbone," Google said.

Google said its intent since launching the first balloons was to find partners and says its New Zealand launch was supported by Vodafone NZ.

Before the project launched, the Loon team were actually planning to buy spectrum for itself, "Captain of Moonshots" Astro Teller told Tech Crunch Disrupt earlier this year.

However, Teller said that Google CEO Larry Page wouldn't allow it, in part because it would have sparked fears that Google was "invading" the country where it launched.

The Brazilian LTE Loon trial comes after Google applied to the US communications regulator to test Loon in North Nevada using spectrum designated for LTE services. Earlier this month one of the Loon balloons, likely launched from Nevada, crashed in a remote part of Washington State, cutting a power line.

News Cars Update : Mercedes Launches Three Models Priced Up To 40600 US Dollars

German carmaker Mercedes-Benz on Thursday launched three ultra luxury vehicles -S500 Coupe, S63 AMG Coupe and SUV G63 AMG 'Crazy Colour' edition- priced between Rs 2 crore and Rs 2.60 crore (ex-showroom Delhi).

The company also introduced its exclusive 'designo' platform that allows customers to choose exclusive paints, high quality interiors, trims and features.

"The fully customized S-Class Coupe is priced at Rs 2 crore, the top end AMG S 63 Coupe at Rs 2.60 crore and the AMG G63 'Crazy Colour' edition at Rs 2.17 crore (all prices ex-showroom Delhi)," the company said.

Mercedes-Benz India managing director and CEO Eberhard Kern said, "It is never before that Mercedes-Benz has launched three exclusive luxury cars in a day. These three supremely exclusive cars live up to our claim of 'Best or Nothing' in the most detailed and compelling fashion."
He said the company will target high-net worth individuals in India with the new products and expand the top end segment of the luxury car market which is about a few hundred units a year.

The S500 Coupe and AMG S 63 Coupe feature optionally available unique headlamps with a total of 94 Swarovski crystals, while the AMG G 63 'Crazy Colours' will be available in solar beam, sunset beam and alien green for enhanced personalisation, the company said.

On 'designo' platform, Kern said, "We have seen an increasing demand for exclusivity and customization from our customers and the launch of the 'designo' range will further reinforce Mercedes-Benz's customer focused approach, transforming customer delight to the next level."

Mercedes Benz plans to introduce 15 new products this year. It has now introduced nine in the Indian market so far.

The company had posted a 43 per cent sales growth in India at 3,093 units in the second quarter of 2015. During the quarter Mercedes-Benz sold 3,566 units, overtaking rival Audi, which sold 3,139 units.

In January-June, the company's sales grew 41 per cent at 6,659 units compared with 4,717 units in the year-ago period.

In the first six months of 2015, it had sold almost as many cars as it did in the entire year of 2012.

In the remaining months of the year, the company will open 12 more dealerships to add to its 73 dealers in 39 cities, he added.
