Bytes & Bolts kicks off with Royal Enfield finding another fan of the 650 Series, this time, Prince William. The Duke of Cambridge seemed quite taken with the retro classic-styled bike which was showcased at the recently held Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting Summit in Westminster, United Kingdom.
This is great news for the upcoming Royal Enfield twins.
Lenovo also embarked on a new journey by launching fitness wearables and some car accessories. It has launched the HX03F Spectra, which comes loaded with a bevy of features at just Rs 2,299! Lenovo has also launched another budget variant called HX03 Cardio, priced at Rs 1,999.
Honda is coming up with a new motorcycle dubbed The Monkey! Yes, it’s a 125cc bike that looks very similar to the Honda Navi and it was showcased at the Tokyo Motor show this year. The bike will not come to India – not that anyone in this country would buy a bike called Monkey!
Also, Gmail has rolled out its new updated new interface which is much more intuitive. The icons look much smaller, the interface, especially the ‘Reply’ page, has been cleaned up, devoid of the boxy elements. Gmail has definitely focused on adding more white space. All this is reminiscent to what we saw with the Inbox app in 2017.
Also, Instagram has rolled out an update that will let users download the data they have shared with the application. This helps the users keep a track of everything they share. After Instagram, WhatsApp is also set to follow suit.
These are some of the tech and auto stories we have covered in this week’s Bytes & Bolts. But wait! There’s a whole lot more in the video above so do check it out!
