OnePlus 6 Launched in India, Priced Starting Rs. 34,999

Following last night’s launch event in London, OnePlus has now unveiled its latest flagship, the OnePlus 6 (starts at Rs. 34,999), at an event in Mumbai, India. If you’re wondering why OnePlus chose to hold a second launch event in the country, it’s because India is the biggest and the most important market for the company.

OnePlus is already one of the top three premium smartphone brands in India, capturing 25% of the market share in the premium price segment. The country has also played a critical role in helping OnePlus establish partnerships with brands such as Amazon and the company’s community in India has played a major role in providing feedback to help it improve the product experience.

The OnePlus 6 launched in India is in no way different from the global variant and features the same top-of-the-line specifications, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6/8GB RAM. The device has initially been released in two color variants, namely Mirror Black and Midnight Black, with a third Silk White variant coming in shortly after. OnePlus has also partnered with Marvel Studios to launch a limited Avengers-edition OnePlus 6, which has exclusively been launched in India.

In case you missed the global launch event, here’s a quick rundown of the specifications on the OnePlus 6:
Processor  Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC    
RAM  6/8GB
Storage  64/128/256GB
Camera  Front: 16MP with EIS
  Rear: 16MP+20MP with OIS and EIS
Display  6.28" 19:9 FHD+ AMOLED
Battery  3,300mAh with Dash Charge (5v,4A)
Operating System  OxygenOS based on Android 8.1 Oreo

The new OnePlus 6 has a new all-glass design which replaces the aluminum back found on last year’s OnePlus 5T. The device packs in a new 6.28-inch full optic AMOLED display with a notch on the top. The notch, much like other Android phones, houses the front-facing camera, sensors and the earpiece. Despite the notch and the chin on the bottom, the OnePlus 6 boasts of a 84% screen-to-body ratio, while keeping a similar form factor as the OnePlus 5T. Another design change included in the OnePlus 6 is that the device is now water resistant, however, OnePlus still hasn’t included an IP certification.

OnePlus has also given a minor bump to the cameras on the OnePlus 6, with the device now featuring a 19% larger sensor and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) along with Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS). OnePlus claims that its latest device will be able to perform better in low-light conditions, but we’ll elaborate on that later in our in-depth camera review. Keeping up with the trends, OnePlus has also included slow-mo video capture, however, unlike the Samsung Galaxy S9, the OnePlus 6 is only able to capture slow-mo video at 480 fps.

While the device was launched at a starting price of $529 globally, it’ll be available at Rs. 34,999 for the 6/64GB base variant and Rs. 39,999 for the 8/128GB variant. Along with the launch, OnePlus has announced a number of launch offers, including a flat Rs. 2,000 discount for SBI card users, Rs. 2,000 cashback for Idea postpaid users, free accidental device insurance, and vouchers worth up to Rs. 25,000 from Cleartrip.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
