Protect yourself from Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The best way to prevent the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic illness is by avoiding your exposure to the virus. Clean your hands often, use soap and water for at least 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol to clean your hands more frequently.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands or after being in the public.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Maintain a safe distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
Stay home if you’re sick and take help from local health authorities and medical professionals.
Make sure to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze. Properly dispose the used tissues in the trash, and immediately clean your hands with soap and water or a hand sanitizer.
Wear a face mask if you are sick or if you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. Do not wear a face mask unless you are caring for someone who is sick.

Lu Weibing from Xiaomi supposedly teases upcoming Mi 10's camera zoom capabilities


Lu Weibing, Xiaomi China's Vice President and General Manager of Redmi, shared two new pictures from his official handle on the Chinese microblogging website, Weibo giving us a possible look at their upcoming smartphone's zoom capabilities. However he didn't exactly mention what model these camera samples belong to but we speculate it to be shot from their forthcoming Xiaomi Mi 10 5G smartphone. Like said, there are no chances of guessing what variant of the Mi 10 could have been possibly used by Weibing to capture these photographs from, as we have already seen a vanilla model coupled with a Pro adaption with 5G in works from the Chinese smartphone maker. Apparently the phones are expected to carry Samsung's latest 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX optics in charge of the rear camera module and now with these newly uploaded pictures going live, we can anticipate the device to bring decent digital zoom abilities as well. Here is a rough translation of Weibing's latest status on the platform that accompanied the below attached photographs,
