New Delhi, Sep 16 : Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra has shared a photograph of the Manhattan cityscape in low light and claimed his Google Pixel captured better photos than iPhone X.

However, he added Samsung camera might even be better than his Pixel.

“Manhattan moonscape. Have to admit, my Pixel takes much sharper pics than my iPhone X. And I’m told the Samsung is even better?” he wrote.

Soon, South Korean tech giant Samsung tweeted in response about Galaxy Note 10 plus. “@anandmahindra Mr Mahindra, yes, you heard right, but you haven’t heard it all, at least not yet… Have you tried #GalaxyNote10+ Pro Grade camera that turns everyday photos and videos into epic moments? Take your pictures to the next level with Samsung,” the tweet reads.

Mahindra’s post triggered a Tweeter debate, with users posting pictures comparing which smartphone captured better images. “U will believe it when u actually use it….ur assumption is totally right though….Samsung does it best as always…@SamsungIndia #galaxys10plus,” said a Twitter user.

Another wrote: “Lenovo is better sir. I used Samsung and now using Lenovo.” “No one beats a Pixel. PERIOD!,” posted another.

The post has gained around 13,000 likes and over 700 retweets.

To recall, Apple recently launched 3 iPhone 11 models, two of them with triple rear camera setup, housing stunning specifications to make you a near-perfect photographer.

Brent hits highest since March, spurred by coronavirus vaccine hopes

This follows positive trial results from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna.

SINGAPORE: Brent crude prices hit their highest levels since March as news of a third promising coronavirus vaccine candidate spurred hopes of a quicker recovery in oil demand, while U.S. President-elect Joe Biden received the go-ahead to begin his leadership transition.

Brent crude futures rose 43 cents, or 0.9%, to $46.49 a barrel by 0522 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude added 45 cents, or 1.1%, to $43.51 a barrel.

Brent rose to a session high of $46.56 earlier on Tuesday, the highest level traded since early March before Saudi Arabia initiated a price war with Russia, which sent oil prices crashing. Both oil benchmarks settled up about 2% on Monday after gaining about 5% last week.

“Progress on developing and distributing a vaccine de-risks the path back to normal for oil markets,” said Stephen Innes, chief global markets strategist at financial services firm Axi.

“If mobility data is a measure of oil price sentiment, in the not too distant future, the vaccine will get people back on airplanes and cruise ships.”

AstraZeneca said on Monday its COVID-19 vaccine was 70% effective in pivotal trials and could be up to 90% effective, giving the world’s fight against the global pandemic a third new weapon that can be cheaper to make, easier to distribute and faster to scale-up than rivals.

This follows positive trial results from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna.

Also helping to ease uncertainty in financial markets, President Donald Trump on Monday allowed officials to proceed with a transition to Joe Biden’s incoming administration, giving his rival access to briefings and funding even as he vowed to persist with efforts to fight the election results.

U.S. crude oil inventories likely edged lower last week, while distillate stockpiles were seen decreasing for a 10th straight week, a preliminary Reuters poll showed on Monday, ahead of reports from the American Petroleum Institute and the Energy Information Administration (EIA).

Traders also focused on a week of technical meetings by OPEC and its allies to prepare the ground for next week’s ministerial gathering, which is set to discuss extending oil output curbs into next year due to weak demand amid a second wave of COVID-19.

Moody’s revises India’s FY21 GDP contraction to (-)10.6%

Under the scheme, manufacturers in key sectors will receive incentives in the form of direct payments over five years.

New Delhi: Moody’s Investor Service on Thursday revised the contraction rate of India’s FY21 GDP to (-) 10.6 per cent from an earlier estimate of (-) 11.5 per cent.

The revision comes days after the Centre announced new stimulus measures.

Besides, Moody’s revised the forecast for the next financial year ending March 2022.

It now estimates a growth of 10.8 per cent from a rise of 10.6 per cent, which was predicted earlier.

“The latest measures (stimulus) aim to increase the competitiveness of India’s manufacturing sector and create jobs, while supporting infrastructure investment, credit availability and stressed sectors,” Moody’s said.

“As such, they present potential upside to our current growth forecasts, a credit positive.”

According to the ratings agency, consumer confidence in India remains relatively low amid a continued elevated number of daily new coronavirus cases, “although this has come down from a peak in September”.

“Stronger nominal GDP growth over the medium term would make it easier for India’s government to address its weak fiscal position, which the coronavirus has exacerbated; we forecast government debt to increase to 89.3 per cent of GDP in fiscal 2020 and decline to 87.5 per cent in fiscal 2021, from an already elevated 72.2 per cent in fiscal 2019,” Moody’s said.

“By contrast, we forecast the median for Baa-rated peers to rise to 60.8 per cent in 2020. The country’s mixed track record on revenue-raising measures lowers prospects for fiscal policy-driven budget consolidation. A sustained increase in GDP growth would therefore likely be a major driver of any durable future fiscal consolidation.”

Accordingly, the global ratings agency expects the general government fiscal deficit to remain wide, reaching around 12 per cent of GDP, with some upside risk, in fiscal 2020 and narrowing to about 7 per cent of GDP over the medium term, still above the deficit of 6.5 per cent of GDP in 2019.

Furthermore, the agency cited that new measures target manufacturing competitiveness.

The latest package follows the Rs 467 billion (0.2 per cent of GDP) of stimulus announced in October and close to Rs 2 trillion (1 per cent of GDP) of direct spending allocated in the government’s first stimulus package in May.

The government expects that no new borrowing will be required to fund the additional spending.

Among the new measures, the government has allocated Rs 1.5 trillion to extend the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme across a further 10 sectors, including automotive and advance cell chemistry manufacturers.

Under the scheme, manufacturers in key sectors will receive incentives in the form of direct payments over five years.

The scheme aims to increase the competitiveness of India’s manufacturing sector, potentially reviving private investment, where year-on-year growth has been trending downward since the second quarter of 2018.
